They will join Chyka Keebaugh, Gina Liano, Jackie Gillies, Janet Roach and Lydia Schiavello.
Andrea Moss has quit the show, following her experience with the first season.
Gamble Breaux (pictured, far right) is described as a contemporary art collector and consultant who loves all things beautiful. “She believes in always looking your best, even if that means a little nip and tuck. A big dog lover, Gamble is bubbly and fun and always up for a party,” according to the press release.
According to Fairfax, Breaux made headlines in 2009 when she was forced to hand back a luxury Mercedes to her former millionaire fine-art dealer partner after a mud-slinging court case where she was chastised by the judge for turning the trial into an episode of Days of Our Lives.
Pettifleur Berenger (pictured, second from right) is described as determined, feisty and glamorous. “Pettifleur thrives on a life of accomplishment and luxury. She is a successful property developer, lives in a penthouse in the heart of the city and is mother to three fantastic boys.”
Foxtel Executive Director of Television, Brian Walsh, said: “This series has literally taken the world by storm. After incredible ratings results on Foxtel for the first series, and now success on Bravo in the US, we are thrilled that a second season has begun production, putting a spotlight on Melbourne with some must-watch characters.
“Foxtel would like to thank Andrea Moss for being one of Australia’s first Real Housewives and we understand her decision not to be part of series two. We wish her much success as she returns to a ‘camera free’ life to focus on her family and help with the successful business of her husband Dr Chris Moss.”
NB: Season 2 will air in 2015, and not in 2014 as previously advised.
