The five soon-to-be most talked about housewives of Vancouver — four blondes and a brunette — have been revealed as a former pageant queen, a winery owner, someone named Reiko and basically everything you’re not.
But that’s meant to be the fun of The Real Housewives of Vancouver, the first Canadian instalment of the popular reality series that takes viewers into the lives of the rich and somewhat famous for a glimpse at how they live, who they love and all the drama that can fit in a prime-time slot.
The five women Canadians will play voyeur to are:
Christina Kiesel: A twice-divorced blonde bombshell, spinster who enjoys jet-setting across the globe and only has her hairdresser “Kevin” to confide in.
Jody Claman: A single mom and fashionista who built her own empire and apparently likes to call herself “Martha Stewart on acid.”
Mary Zilba: A former recording artist (her bio says she had “numerous songs” on the Top 40 chart) and Miss Ohio, she’s on the prowl for a Vancouver man, but isn’t optimistic on her choices.
Reiko MacKenzie: The “multicultural” one who claims both Canadian and Japanese heritage. It shows off in her love of mixed martial arts and sports cars. Good thing her husband’s rich. Together they have nine cars, including a very un-Japanese Ferrari.
Ronnie Seterdahl: Behind the gates of her waterfront West Vancouver community, Ronnie has everything she needs — a yacht, a private jet and her own personal vineyard. Her cast photo reveals she was doing the Angelina Jolie leg pose before Jolie even knew it was cool.
The show promises to follow the five women about town, dining in Vancouver’s exclusive eateries, shopping and partying.
The Vancouver instalment joins a collection of Real Housewives shows currently airing in New York, Atlanta, Miami and elsewhere.
The special two-hour Canadian premiere airs April 4 at 9 p.m. on Slice.
