The Real Housewives of Sydney: A Phoenix Rising from the Ashes

<h3><span class=Introduction

In the world of reality television, few shows have achieved the rare feat of being both beloved and cancelled after only one season. However, the Australian franchise, The Real Housewives of Sydney (RHoS), managed to do just that. After six years, the show has made a triumphant return, streaming on Binge and Foxtel, and capturing the attention of devoted fans once again.

A Brief History of One-Season Wonders

The realm of reality TV is filled with one-season wonders that were loved by some but ultimately rejected by the masses. As a self-proclaimed Bravo-holic, I can’t help but reminisce about the shows that left an indelible mark on my reality TV journey. From the deluded twentysomethings of Gallery Girls to the ill-advised real-life take on Gossip Girl in NYC Prep, and the trainwreck that was High Society, the list of one-season wonders is a testament to the fickle nature of reality television.

Rising from the Ashes

Even rarer than a beloved and short-lived series is one that rises from the ashes many years after cancellation. In 2021, The Real Housewives of Miami made a stunning comeback after eight years off the air. Now, closer to home, The Real Housewives of Sydney has spread its wings once again. The show’s first season introduced viewers to a cast of unforgettable characters, moments, and cocktails that left an impression, to say the least. From the eccentricities of Matty the cosmetic injector to the Skinny Bitch cocktail popularized by Victoria Rees, RHoS was a wild ride from start to finish.

The Notorious Sydney Housewives

One of the most notable cast members of the Sydney housewives was Lisa Oldfield, a doomsday prepper and spouse of One Nation co-founder David Oldfield. Her scenes were often fueled by a potent mix of Endone and champagne, resulting in some truly memorable moments, including a near-drowning incident and a bizarre rescue by a “morbidly obese guy on a kayak towing a giant inflatable swan.”

The Controversial Cancellation

However, despite its brilliance, RHoS met its demise due to its reportedly nasty behavior and language, which failed to resonate with US viewers. The decision to cancel the show left a void that has long been felt by fans. But now, with the premiere of the Binge original series, season two of RHoS operates almost like a reboot, attempting to recapture the magic of the first season while introducing new cast members who have the potential to electrify the screens.

The Return of the Housewives

The second season of RHoS brings back two familiar faces – former model Krissy Marsh and former Miss Australia Nicole O’Neil. Joining them are a fresh quintet of charismatic women, including self-made gazillionaire Bondi vet Kate Adams, socialite Terry Biviano, Burning Man attendee Caroline Gaultier, and former TV host Sally Obermeder, who also owns a wellness brand.

Early Breakout Star

Among the new cast members, Victoria Montano stands out as a hot contender for an early breakout star. Running a clothing label that sells $169 leggings and raccoon fur jackets, Montano introduces herself with a dose of wit and self-awareness, humorously lamenting the potential extinction of women in Sydney‘s eastern suburbs who have retained their natural features since birth.


The return of The Real Housewives of Sydney brings with it a mix of truth-tellers, delusional characters, and messy pot-stirrers that make for captivating reality TV. As the show dives back into the wealthy eastern suburbs of Sydney, viewers are already hooked, eagerly awaiting the drama and extravagance that only the Real Housewives can deliver.
