Real Housewives of Sydney star Dr Kate Adams has hit back at criticism that she doesn’t fit the bill of a traditional housewife.
Kate, 41, is the only cast member this season who is childless and has never been married.
During an appearance on The Morning Show with Terry Biviano on Thursday, the veterinarian insisted that the franchise has evolved from the early days to include women who have become ‘successful in their own right’.
‘It started out in the early 2000s, it was very much housewives, and as society has changed, so have the franchises,’ she explained.
‘And around the world there is now lots of unmarried, childless women on the show, including myself,’ she continued.

‘It’s probably the biggest question I get asked. “How are you a housewife?”
‘My answer is, “I have a house, I have animals, I have children – they just have fur!”‘
Kate has been at the centre of several fights on the show – locking horns with Krissy Marsh and with Victoria Montana over the fashion & lifestyle consultant’s penchant for fur.
Last week, she discussed a potential return to the show next season on the TV Reload podcast.
‘About coming back next year, there seems to be a clear divide between the girls. When the show picks up again will we see more of a divide between you?’ host Benjamin Norris asked her.

‘When alliances start to form the show starts to not work. You see that in season one fairly clearly,’ she replied.
‘Everyone says that someone is a s**t and I’m like it is Housewives, we are not going to sit around and have a cup of tea.’
Dr Adams began her career by appearing on Bondi Vet and made her debut on season two of RHOS earlier this year.
The rest of the Real Housewives of Sydney cast are either married, have children, or both
In October, the veterinarian revealed while she has enjoyed her time on RHOS she has no plans to give up her day job, as she loves animals too much to even consider it.
‘I go from having my hair and makeup done with a glam squad and cameras around me to then putting on scrubs to fix a dog’s anal glands!’ she told Perth Now.
‘I always said I would never, ever lose my time with my animals. It’s certainly been a wild ride.’
