Real Housewives of Melbourne: Three women face the axe next season

Real Housewives of Melbourne teases dramatic cast shakeup as THREE women are set to be fired before next season following poor ratings


The Real Housewives could fired up to three cast members following a lacklustre reception to the most recent season of the show. 

Original Housewife Janet Roach spilled the shocking casting news on Twitter, hinting that the newer Housewives would be the ones to get the boot.

‘The season is over. Those 3 won’t be back. They rated poorly,’ she tweeted cryptically.

‘Why do you think Susie [McLean], Sally [Bloomfield] and Venus [Behbahani-Clark] didn’t come back? They wanted to, unfortunately they rated poorly.’

Given that Janet clashed with Kyla Kirkpatrick, Cherry Dipietrantonio, and Anjali Rao during the season, it appears that she was referring to those three as the women who won’t return.

Anjali already quit RHOM midway through filming the season, but her future on the show is still unclear. 

Out of the four newbies, Janet forged a strong friendship with Simone Elliott, who also replied to Janet’s tweet about the cast changes.

‘The matriarch of @RHOMelbourne has spoken,’ Simone responded, followed by a winking emoji.

Then, when a fan told Janet that they wanted to see former Housewives like Gina Liano and Lydia Schiavello return, Janet responded: ‘That’s what I think will happen.’

The latest season of the Real Housewives of Melbourne rated poorly on Foxtel, but was a huge hit on streaming, becoming the No. 1 most streamed show on Binge.

In November, Gamble Breaux said that she expects to see Lydia and Pettifleur Berenger back if the show gets picked up for a sixth season next year.

‘I think if there’s another season we’ll definitely see Lydia,’ the 49-year-old told the Unpopular podcast.

‘We need Lydia, she’s frigging hilarious,’ she continued. ‘You can’t make this stuff up.’

When asked about Pettifleur, Gamble said the socialite almost filmed scenes for the current season of RHOM, but was held back due to Covid restrictions.

‘If it wasn’t for lockdown, she would’ve been at the exhibition. If it wasn’t for lockdown, she would’ve been at my record launch,’ she explained. 

‘She was invited to everything but I think at the time it wasn’t right for her. But I think if we do another season we’ll see Pettifleur for sure.’

Season five of the Real Housewives of Melbourne wrapped up on Sunday and there are no plans to film a reunion.
