  1. If this is half as bat-sh** cray cray as the original series, it might be worth the watch. But what I’d love to know is when / if a new Melbourne series is coming? I need more Janet, Jackie and Gamble!

  2. I am so ready for this trash to hit my screen! If the last season is anything to go by, this season is going to be crazy! Please cast Roxy Jacenko and Terry Biviano!!!

    I agree that we should have a “Down Under” version of RHUGT. It’d be great to see Gina Liano and Lisa Oldfield going hammer and tong at each other!

  3. If Foxtel/Binge wants a housewives sugar hit, they should look at commissioning a ‘Down Under’ adaptation of RH Ultimate Girls Trip with ‘all-stars’ from the Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland series. Would have a lot of fans! They could also invite Alex McCord, an OG from RHONY who now lives in Byron to appear to help with international sales. She is on the next season of RHUGT which filmed in Morocco.

    The Girls Trip format allows them to cast people who may not want to commit to a whole series – someone like Gina Liano could potentially be persuaded to come back.
