Things are about to get real up in Vancouver. Perhaps taking a cue from the more scandalous cities of Atlanta, Beverly Hills and Miami, the lone Canadian city in the "Real Housewives Of Vancouver" franchise is fully prepared to get crazy.
Jody Claman, Mary Zilba and Ronnie Negus are sticking around, but Christina Kiesel and Reiko MacKenzie are out. In their place are three new ladies, ready to add some fire to Vancouver:
Robin Reichman is a single mother of two who "calls it like it is," and is living the high life thanks to a recent divorce settlement. Her kids each have a nanny, while her horse, Giggy, sports a Prada saddle (did anyone know that Prada even made saddles?). I hate her already.
Ioulia Reynolds is a Russian-born 26-year-old "with a fiery temper and a quirky sense of humour." Of course. She is married to a wealthy venture capitalist in his 40s but also balances her wifely duties with her career as an art dealer and playing stepmom to her husband's four children.
Amanda Hansen is a mother of three and a recovering alcoholic whose ex-husband left her well provided for. She now enjoys a life of sobriety and healthy living -- but is also a self-proclaimed sex addict. Um... I'm not sure how well that works out with her long-distance relationship with boyfriend Kyle.
"Season One of 'The Real Housewives of Vancouver' was a massive hit on Slice," said Barbara Williams, Senior Vice-President of Content, Shaw Media, in the release. "Adding three new wives to our existing roster of fabulous stars is going to turn the series on its head, tripling the potential for new relationships, drama and spectacle."
Season 2 promises more drama, more spa treatments and, if possible, more butt lifts. It's kind of irresistable, no?
"The Real Housewives of Vancouver" returns Feb. 5 at 10pm ET/PT on Slice.
