Okay, so I am watching my most current guilty pleasures of all time with regards to TV and that be "The Real Housewives of Vancouver". 
I just randomly began watching it a few weeks ago and I completely got hooked on it. 
Now, I am not into the Real Housewives shows at all...never really watched the OC ones, Atlanta, New Jersey or whatever but for some reason I am drawn to this one -- probably because it takes place in Canada. I don't know, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
I guess it shows that not all the rich people live in the US and there are richies all over the world. :)
I am typing this without looking at the screen and watching my show. Lol. 
Anyways! I decided to share an article and a clip along with some images so you get the gist of the show which only airs on Slice TV on Wednesdays at 10pm EST. 
ARGH! I love this show!
A DVD BETTER be out once the season is done and they also BETTER renew it for another one! I think I am more obsessed with this show then Mob Wives. That is saying a lot. 
Lol. It's saying a lot in general as I barely watch any TV unless it's the Food Network. 
I laugh along with it and I get livid with it...what show does that for you? It's pure entertainment - that is for sure. 
Anyways, here is the article!

The Real Housewives of Vancouver Cast Revealed
By: Lana Mador

Real Housewives mania hits Vancouver, and here are the women who will represent Van City.
Years of yogalates, Yaletown shopping sprees and first world problems have prepared five of Vancouver's most fabulous women to star in the first Canadian instalment of the Real Housewives franchise. They join the ranks of pampered homemakers from Orange County, New York City, Atlanta, New Jersey, Beverly Hills, Miami, Athens, Israel and France: all who have been featured on the hit international reality show. Being the most expensive place to live in North America, it seems fitting that Vancouver is the next stop on the series' worldwide tour of the lifestyles of the rich and not-so famous.

Introducing the Real Housewives of Vancouver
So who are the new faces of the city? The show delves into the glamorous lives of jetsetter Christina Kiesel, entrepreneur Jody Claman, former Miss Ohio Mary Zilba, martial arts enthusiast Reiko MacKenzie and social butterfly Ronnie Seterdahl as they live large on the West Coast. Of course these one percenters love getting dolled up for a good party, but living in the lap of luxury isn't all diamond-studded cupcakes and designer duds. A former pop singer, Mary is looking to reignite her music career, while Jody (who describes herself as "Martha Stewart on crack") runs her own catering company and high-end clothing boutique. 
On the flip side, Christina figured out the true secret to financial success early on: "My primary source of income is two divorces - full stop."
All of the women except for Christina are mothers, and although their social calendars are hectic, they're always up for an adventure. From Reiko's prized exotic car collection to Ronnie's private jet and Napa Valley vineyard, they never seem to run out of ways to deal with all that pesky extra cash that seems to be lying around. 
They may love their luxury toys, but can these divas really play nice with each other? Barbara Williams, Senior Vice President of Content at Shaw Media, assures us that there will be plenty of Canadian catfights. 
"The Real Housewives of Vancouver is packed with all of the juiciest story lines, drama, power, wealth and glamour that viewers love about the huge, international hit franchise," she says. "Every episode will leave people wanting more."
That may seem like a far cry from the city's usual laid-back beach bum reputation, but if anything, giving the world a glimpse of the ever-stylish middle-ages frenemies in "real" Vancouver could really help the city ditch its "third-worst dressed city in the world" title. 

And there you have it! Just a little bit of a background on the show for you guys if you haven't seen it and I am sure you all seem quite intrigued now. :) 
Now I am going to give a little background on each of the gals from my point of view. 
It goes in order of my favourite to my least favourite. 

PS. I don't have too too much to say as I just started to watch the show. I am just going to give you my first impression of the gals. 

1. Christina Kiesel

Body confident {um...I would be if I had her body}
Passive aggressive 

2. Mary Zilba

Creative {singing career and a scarf line out}
Passive aggresive in a way too
Bad judge of character {she was friends with Ronnie for 17 years, enough said}

3. Reiko MacKenzie

Physically fit {she boxes/fights}
Adrenaline junkie {owns like...a lot of fast exotic cars}
The voice of reason

4. Jody Claman

Hard working
Overprotective / Loyal
Tries to start shit for no reason sometimes
Likes to belittle some of the other housewives

5. Ronnie Seterdahl

Over-indulgent {happy hour 24/7 anyone?}
Starts shit for no reason
Has a thing against Mary...maybe jealous? 
Hospitable I feel bad judging these women on a couple of episodes, but this is how the show portrays them. I really didn't think that Ronnie was going to be my least favourite, I honestly thought that Jody would be. But after seeing the last few episodes where Ronnie is pretty much drunk all the time and starts fights with Mary {even though they made up the day before} just looks plain bad on her. 
The way the list goes sort of shows you the two different sides and as I called Reiko "the voice of reason". Mary and Christina really are sweet and it just seems like Jody and Ronnie are jealous because they keep nitpicking and belittling them all the time. 
This is just the way it has come across so far. 
Either way, anything could happen in the season...everyone is jealous of Christina because she is the youngest {and a bombshell}, Mary is the prettiest out of all the older housewives, Reiko is badass, Jody knows how to get under your skin and is intimidating and Ronnie is the richest and lives lavishly. 

I still like the show. :P
Can't wait for the next episode!!
