Who is in The Real Housewives of Melbourne cast?

“We are proud to partner once again with Matchbox Pictures with a big cast shake up set for the new season which will see fresh faces join some of our most loved Melbourne Housewives,” said Foxtel boss, Brian Walsh .

Those three fabulous fresh faces are:

Anjali Rao (45) is a multi-award-winning news anchor, who has enjoyed two decades at the top tiers of international television journalism. Most notably, she spent six years at CNN International, interviewing huge names, such as the Dalai Lama and President Bill Clinton.

Cherry Dipietrantonio (38) is a yoga instructor, originally from Southampton, UK. She met her husband, Andre, in Bali at the age of 18, while travelling on a gap year and they’ve been inseparable ever since. She is is passionate about health, nutrition and is dedicated to a lifestyle focused on well-being.

They are joining incredible returning Housewives Gina Liano, Lydia Schiavello, Janet Roach and Gamble Breaux.

Brian tells: “The Real Housewives of Melbourne took Australia by storm, changing our television landscape like never before and we are delighted to bring it back for Foxtel viewers.

“We are continually blown away with the passionate way audiences consume this captivating series that has made household names out of Melbourne’s now infamous Housewives.”

When does The Real Housewives of Melbourne season 5 start?

Foxtel has announced that The Real Housewives of Melbourne has been commissioned for a fifth season in 2020.

Not much is known about the exact date, but Foxtel has confirmed that the TV show will air on Arena and stream on Foxtel in 2020.

Launching back in 2014, the show was the most watched reality show in Foxtel’s history and four seasons were made before a break in 2018 and 2019.

Foxtel Executive Director of Television Brian Walsh said, “This series has a huge following of loyal and adoring fans and it was paramount we picked the perfect time to commission a fifth season.”

The official statement also read: “The past four seasons have been an outstanding success and Foxtel is delighted to be bringing Melbourne’s most infamous Housewives to audiences once again.”

What will happen in The Real Housewives of Melbourne season 5?

As the production team have just announced the official cast, we do not yet know what is going to happen.

But, what we do know for sure, is that the episodes will be filled with fabulous fun, incredible opulence and of course, a huge amount of drama!

As ever with all of The Housewives franchises all over the world, we’ll see relationships tested, yet also new friendships being formed.

Where is the Real Housewives of Melbourne filmed?

You can expect to see the cast filming around Melbourne’s CBD and wealthy suburbs, from the trendy regions of Fitzroy and St Kilda, to the famed affluent areas of East Melbourne and Toorak.

If the show follows the format of previous years, a girls’ trip away to a luxury destination will most likely be shown on air, too.

The Real Housewives of Melbourne have previously visited Mission Beach, Manila, Dubai and Cabo San Lucas to film the show.
