After the last season of Real Housewives of Melbourne, it was announced that Susie McClean and Pettifleur Berenger would not be returning. One of the new housewives is Lady Venus Behbahani-Clark. First of all, that name! Did anyone ever see an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians where they were in some UK country or another and Scott Disick bought the title “Lord”? I believe it has something to do with buying a spot of land or something. At any rate, Scott has gone around ever since referring to himself as “the lord.” This is apparently the same way Lady Venus and Lord James Clark obtained their pompous titles. So there is that bit of ridiculousness right off the bat. She has a friend who is a celebrity psychic, which is generally a plus for a housewife, but with Jackie on the show there may be a battle of the psychics. She also enjoys plastic surgery.
It appears that the Lord and Lady managed to get a beach wedding by
Bravo Foxtel at the Four Seasons. [EDIT] While Venus’ IG certainly makes it appear that the wedding was on May 18th, and used the hashtags #Foxtel #RealHousewivesofMelbourne, THE LORD (Not Scott Disick, the one in Melbourne) wants us to know that they actually got married last December, prior to filming and he paid for it himself! Because he is very, very, rich!
Here is the tea that is not being reported anywhere else. Basically, when the couple auditioned for RHOMel they wanted to look wealthy so they managed to rent a car from Dream Drives, a Melbourne company that leases very high-end cars for special events. It appears that there was some delay by the dealer in returning their deposit for the free rental. According to the rental company that was because they didn’t have the information on where to return it.
Lord James Clark felt the company simply stole his deposit and allegedly left a very bad review on Google reviews under the false name, Jonathan Goldsmith. James clearly felt that the company was deliberately withholding the deposit.
As one might imagine, the dealership was not happy about this review at all. They were quick to respond.
Well this couple seems like an awesome addition to the show! So much drama! Fans in Melbourne are remarking about how much Venus resembles a younger Pettifleur and the other new comer, Sarah Bloomfield looks a bit like Chyka Keebaugh. Also, Sarah seems to be similar to Chyka in personality as well. Sarah is in the housewares and hotel business just like Chyka. So hopefully we will like Sarah as much as we loved Chyka. Venus proudly admits that she has had numerous cosmetic surgeries and is expected to be much like the spitfire, Pettifleur was.
Y’all know that my favorite RHOM is Lydiot. She’s everything I could ask for in a housewife. I hope Bravo picks up the season. They are so stingy with the Foxtel housewives shows and most of you guys don’t watch them anyway, but I love them! Why can’t we have nice things?
