Gina Liano Is Shocked That The Real Housewives Of Sydney Was Rejected By Bravo For Being “Too Extreme” For U.S. Audiences!

More Real Housewives of Melbourne cast members are reacting to the news that Bravo rejected to air the first season of The Real Housewives of Sydney because they found the show "too extreme" for U.S. viewers. This time is fan-favorite Gina Liano, she is sharing her thoughts on the drama surrounding the RHOS.

Gina Liano says she was shocked to see overseas audiences shun the Sydney series. "It is surprising because those other franchises can get pretty nasty. I don't know what they were comparing it to, Melbourne has been nasty too," Liano told News Corp Australia.

As previously reported, the disappointed decision has caused Foxtel's head of television Brian Walsh to concede he is concerned about the cast, hinting changes would have be made to the housewives line up.

"A lot of the women in this show were nasty for nasty’s sake and have no redeeming features," he said. "I particularly felt Lisa Oldfield and AthenaX Levendi were driving their own agendas."

Brian said he would be steering changes in the second series to make sure the women were better behaved and more friendly towards each other.

"I’ve raised my concerns with the production team from this season. I felt the bad language and behavior throughout the series did go too far," he told The Daily Telegraph.

Meanwhile, Liano's co-star Janet Roach explains she thinks the show got rejected by American network Bravo. "I think we have a bit more respect for one another in Melbourne," Janet told News Corp Australia, also adding the Sydney series didn't showcase the housewives' real personalities enough.

"And we have no-go zones - children, partners, things that are going to affect us in our outside lives."

The Sydney cast consists of spiritual goddess AthenaX Levendi, businesswoman Lisa Oldfield alongside former model Krissy Marsh, day spa queen Matty Samaei, ’90s pop star Melissa Tkautz, former Miss World Nicole O’Neill and socialite Victoria Rees.

Meanwhile, it's been confirmed that New Zealand's very own The Real Housewives of Auckland has been picked up by Bravo and will make its U.S. debut this summer.

The Real Housewives of Sydney and The Real Housewives of Auckland are produced by Matchbox Pictures for NBCUniversal, same producers who are behind The Real Housewives of Melbourne, which filming is currently underway for Season 4, which is set to air later this year on Foxtel's Arena.
