    Season 4 supposedly has a NINTH housewife, so I'm hoping another will go along with Chyka.

    Meanwhile, I think the highlight of the S3 reunion was Lydia and Suzie's RARK UP, the peak being Suzie's "You were at my WEDDING!" :D

    Fine, I'll stick my tasteful neon pink press-ons into Alicia's brother or Carla's ex husband instead.

    Just binged through season 4 Mob Wives, I got impatient and got the DVDs for 4, 1 and Miami Monkey (which I've already seen and thought it was the other show Big Ang did). Sherri would not have been my choice for the reunion, but my guess is the presenters who do these shows are always so appalled afterwards that they need to get someone else. I think a lot of it was staged, but Renee was so utterly exhausting and possessed, she took over what might have been a really weak season with poor casting add-ons. I actually liked Alicia - shame she won't be back, but the one that speaks through her nose will (I'll only approve if we get more from cabbage-brain hunk London). I'm also amazed that we saw someone's actual sperm in a cup (couldn't have been more than 3mls).

    Mugali is going to have a field day with this.

    "There are inconsistencies between the accounts she has given in court and to police" - in her defence, I'll bet this is just to do with the age old question about her age and nothing more.

    Aw I think I love Gamble. Is it bad I had a little tear in my eye during the wedding speeches?

    Just started seaon 1 Mob Wives. They look so young. Or younger rather. Renee's flashback photos are giving me 'life' in more ways than one.

    Almost done all of MW1, it really is quite clear that this show wouldn't have got picked up for a 2nd season without Renee - her high and low points have no distinction. The face she pulls when Drita's hand goes on her neck to pull her back encapsulates what it is I love about her. What a terrifying, brilliant mess of a woman.

    I do fear how she'll cope now MW is OVER :(

    No need to worry about Dawn though, Cheshire are already filming Season 4 :disco: Same cast returning. Must be SO CHEAP to make, I hope they've hit their stride now and bang out two a year.

    CHESHIRE should be bumped to a midweek ITV1 9pm slot. It could be a real life footballers wives. Send them to DUBAI and we are OFF :disco:

    Didn't know, or completely forgot, that Wendy Williams hosted the first season reunion for Mob Wives. It should have just been taped at her own studio - with an audience for her Wendy-isms to land better. She and Joy have been best at it. Renee quite clearly the true star of the season.

    Not quite sure what's gone on with Melbourne on ITVbe but it looks like they went from originally showing it on Friday afternoons to showing it every day with the reunion episode airing last Monday!

    Yeah I sat down the other day and saw it was on and it was the last episode of Season 3. I thought it had gone by very fast!

    Has Ms Halli ever heard of streaming? Which season are you watching?

    I wonder why they did that? Getting it out of the way because of dismal ratings?

    The Real Housewives of Auckland just aired tonight and it's not even half-bad.

    Highlight was when Angela (basically Andrea) was talking about her career, and Michelle was just nodding and saying "Oh right, wow, yeah" :D Patronising cunt.

    I was going to ask how it was?

    Louise is the only one I've even heard of, we really do scrape the barrel. Why they couldn't have landed our Rach and Sally Ridge to spice it up.

    Babe Sally Ridge couldn't act dramatic if she was being hung from her stockings over the Waikato River. She's already tried her hand at reality tv and she was bland as fuck.
    Rachel probably think she's too good, and she's probably too famous. It's better when they're random.

    It really wasn't that bad. There were some good moments, like when Louise calls Angela a "big unit" LOL And Julia says "Oh yes...I've HEARD of her". But the accents are just GOLD. Especially Anne's "Oh GOHD YEEES" :D
    I had no idea Gilda was Persian. Middle East represent :disco: Also turns out my brother is Michelle's LOCAL PHARMACIST :D!

    Has Melbourne been scrapped then?

    ItvBe showed all episodes of S3 in like a week to seemingly get it out of the way

    Oh the accents surely will make it. Whenever I jump on an Air NZ flight these days I'm mortified at how FRESH we all sound :o

    Auckland is AMAZING. The best new one since Melbourne. I know it's only been two episodes but they've really gotten it SO RIGHT.

    I can't help but get sad every time the lovely Big Ange comes on screen though :( What season am I on, and how many more after this?

    I'm CRINGING at our accent. Angela's "It's like...HELLOY" is especially alarming :D

    Gilda and Anne are the best.
    Gilda's "You know what I've heard about you? You know what I've heard about YOU?!.....Not a fucking thing" is a GIF WAITING to happen.
    And Anne is the most fabulous mess I've ever seen. Hormone pills and champagne has GOT to be an all time HIGH for the Real Housewives.

    You're on 5, there's one more left, but it talks about Ang's cancer and might be too tough to watch.

    Anne from Auckland really is my spirit animal. Her little cackle is larger than life itself. "Who brings their PA to a party?" :D
