Binge has released the official trailer for the new and reimagined edition of The Real Housewives of Sydney, giving fans a sneak peak of the people in the forthcoming ten-part series. Rather than delivering dramatically edited footage of the wealthy and obnoxious in ways that make us question existence, the new format will … actually, that’s more or less the game plan.
As one participant says in the trailer:
I think people have a view that it’s full of snobs or people who think they’re better than other people – they’re actually pretty spot on.
The Australian spin-off of the American reality TV series was cancelled in 2019 after one season but has been revived by Binge. The following blurbs about the featured 2023 housewives, supplied by Binge, should bring you up to speed:
CAROLINE GAULTIER – Caroline is a forward-thinking and kind-hearted soul. Born in Prague, Caroline has called Tokyo, Byron Bay and now Sydney’s Bondi Beach her home. While living and working in Japan, Caroline studied for a degree in Philosophy at university. After her divorce, Caroline chose to focus on raising her two daughters, having fun with her girlfriends, and becoming even more fabulous. Caroline finds joy in deep talk with anyone from her best friends to intelligent strangers and always embraces life. While many choose to settle down to a comfortable life in the eastern suburbs, Caroline is jetting off to alternative wellness retreats in Tulum or Nevada’s Burning Man festival. Caroline readily admits that vanity is her driving force in life and that she’s focused on looking, and feeling, the best version of herself. Caroline defies stereotypes and imparts her own brand of wisdom, radiating positivity wherever she goes.

Engaged twice, she is currently flying solo, happily exploring the dating scene with all its swiping and dining.

A creative at heart, Terry built her shoe label up to towering heights until she chose to focus on raising her beloved, pocket rocket Azura, now 9 years old. While she may not be a whiz in the kitchen, Terry’s love for her husband, retired NRL star Anthony Minichiello, and their daughter, is immeasurable. A celebrated ladies lunch hostess, Terry is no stranger to champagne flutes and caviar bumps, but it’s her signature drink, the TBomb, that is the fresh sip that matches her zesty spark!
