RHOAKL Star Julia Sloane Is Working On A Documentary About Sexuality!

According to a new report, Julia Sloane is working on a documentary, which is set to be released next year. While the Real Housewives of Auckland star would not comment her involvement on the project, a spokeswoman confirmed that Sloane had started work on a documentary about sexuality.

"While the subject matter is adult, it is in no way going to be gratuitous," she told Stuff.

The spokeswoman said Sloane was "approached to present a documentary addressing sexuality in New Zealand."

The documentary is in early stages of production and is being privately funded. It's also set to be submitted at film festivals mid-2018, the spokeswoman said.

Directing the documentary was filmmaker Lisa Burd, alongside producer John Davies.

The project is a feature-length documentary, featuring Sloane taking a “wise and sometimes sardonic view of the subject matter,” John Davies, the project’s producer told The Spin Off.

Davies confirmed that he is the producer, saying “we’re making a documentary – she’ll be hosting it”. He named the director as Lisa Burd, a Real Housewives field producer, who last year made the award-winning documentary Monterey.

Sloane starred in the first and only season of Bravo New Zealands' The Real Housewives of Auckland, which aired in 2016 in New Zealand and in Australia. Sloane became instantly infamous in September of 2016 after an episode in which she referred to fellow-contestant Michelle Blanchard as a “boat n*****”. Blanchard, who is black, was mortified by the slur, and the episode sparked controversy around the world, aided by the combative response of Sloane and her husband Michael Lorimer.

The pair blamed the Real Housewives production. The incident saw lawyers and public relations experts be called in. Race Relations Commissioner Susan Devoy commented on the fauxpas, saying it was good to see New Zealanders calling out "ignorant, offensive and racist things."

The Real Housewives of Auckland Season 1 premiered earlier this year in the UK and is currently airing in the U.S., every Saturday at 12:00pm on Bravo!
