Love ‘em or hate ‘em, The Real Housewives of Vancouver are back for a second season (airing February 5 at 10 p.m. on Slice). This time around, however, the original group of five women has expanded to six, and cast changes include the departure of season one housewives Reiko MacKenzie and Christina Kiesel and the addition of three new housewives: Amanda Hansen, loulia Reynolds, and Robin Reichman.
According to her online bio, Amanda is a recent divorcee raising three kids under the age of 10 on the North Shore. The blonde bombshell is a self-described short-tempered sex addict with a south-of-the-border lover in Seattle named Kyle. The recovering alcoholic considers herself a “bad-girl gone-good”.
Meanwhile, Russian-born loulia has been married to a Vancouver-based venture capitalist who is 20 years her senior for five years. The couple lives in Coal Harbour and louila is step-mother to four children. While louila is financially dependent on her husband, she reportedly hopes to launch a career as an art broker.
Robin moved to Vancouver from Texas 10 years ago, and adds a touch of southern hospitality to the Real Housewives group, according to Slice. The mother of two children lives in Point Grey, and her online bio describes her as having “strong Christian values” as well as an “appetite for gossip”.
Amanda, louila, and Robin join original Real Housewives of Vancouver cast members Ronnie Negus, Mary Zilba, and Jody Claman.
