Housewives favourite Gina Liano she will not be returning to the franchise. She mentioned this back in 2020 at a press conference where she said:
“I got back into my own life, it was peaceful and I quite enjoyed it and I was hesitant to come back only for that reason. It’s a big responsibility having a public profile, even though I swear and carry on and maybe act a bit irresponsible. I think there might be a time where I don’t come back just because my life will keep moving.”
Another cast member who won’t be back is Lydia Schiavello who said she “made the personal decision to step away”.
“I will miss the camaraderie the interaction with viewers and the challenges that my fellow cast members presented,” she wrote on her social media post.
You can watch Real Housewives of Melbourne on Foxtel from October 10.
