Anjali Rao has thrown shade at her Real Housewives of Melbourne co-stars. 

Speaking to The Herald Sun on Friday, the 47-year-old said that she was ‘self made’ and quite different to the women on the show.

‘To go into a world like Housewives was different, particularly when I am an entirely self made woman – professionally, financially, all of it – I didn’t have to hook up with somebody or marry someone to have it.

‘You can have your diamonds, I’ve got my brain,’ she added. 

Anjali also told the paper that the cast was shocked that she hadn’t undergone cosmetic procedures. 

Her way: 'To me it really isn't all horse drawn carriages and diamond tiaras. But I think for those other women it is,' she said. 'The others couldn't believe I'd never had Boto,' she added. Pictured with her co-stars

‘The others couldn’t believe I’d never had Botox. I think anybody who says they go into any reality show not frightened or nervous in some way, is a liar or an idiot,’ she added. 

It comes after rumours that Anjali quit the show during filming. 

Speaking to the Unpopular podcast, original housewife Janet Roach said that a newbie ‘couldn’t keep up’ with the glitz and glamour of the show. 

‘She couldn’t keep up with times, she couldn’t keep up with outfits,’ she said.

‘I think she’s running around and saying, ‘Oh it’s fake and it’s not for me.’ When the fact of the matter is, I worked with her, she couldn’t keep up. 

‘She struggled all the way through,’ Janet added.
