Janet Roach Says The RHOMelbourne Cast “Have A Bit More Respect For One Another” Compared To RHOS Ladies; Says They Had Too Many Below The Belt Fights!

Real Housewives of Melbourne star Janet Roach weighs in on the drama surrounding The Real Housewives of Sydney. As previously reported, Bravo rejected the RHOS show because they believed it was "too extreme" for U.S. audiences.

While Sydney's first season featured derogatory comments about people's weight, families and 'sl*t shaming', Janet said the Real Housewives Of Melbourne has very clear 'no-go zones.'

"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."

Roach's comments come as as Foxtel conceded some of the Sydney housewives have 'no redeeming features', and hinted at a major cast overhaul for season two.

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.

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.
