Once the women get to Whistler, the real “plot” appears, with Jody cutting down Christina for not wanting to work (Christina claims earning spousal support from two ex-husbands involved plenty of “work”) and Mary for sleeping with her ex (which Jody thinks is a sign that Mary is weak and “needs therapy”), while Mary’s frenemy Ronnie looks on and Reiko acts uncomfortable. The rest of the hour is mainly some shopping, drinking, and Christina’s at-home botox. Though I wasn’t entertained by the ladies’ interpersonal drama (that’s why people watch the , right?
reveal that cast member Reiko Mackenzie’s husband Sunny Mackenzie is Sun News Lal, a man acquitted, along with “notorious crime boss Bindy Johal in Vancouver’s sensational gangland murder of brothers Jim and Ron Dosanjh” in 1994), the Real Housewives of Vancouver premiered April 4 on Slice TV with two back-to-back episodes.
Like many Vancouverites, I was intrigued enough to see the Vancouver version of the franchise—the first main cast: Jody Claman (whose personal style is all about huge jewelry and furs, thus reminding me a bit of Miss Piggy), Mary Zilba (former beauty queen/singer who I’m guessing will be the “nice” one), Christina Kiesel (the “young one” who gets birthday botox at home from a dentist named Dr.
"I wouldn't say it was the trigger for my divorce" she admits. We've been very good friends for many years so we amicably split." As for a possible return to the show she notoriously left after season one? If Slice ever decides to bring back RHOV, I would love to see Reiko back, we need to see a gay housewife on the franchise damn it!
I was married to man these are the facts and this is my life." Many may now be wondering if Reiko's newly-revealed sexuality was what lead to the split from her husband. We are so happy for Reiko, we wish her much success and happiness.
I don't have children, so I'm not embarrassing my kids.
I'm liking my role the best," said Christina Kiesel of The Real Housewives of Vancouver, during her sit-down with The Vancouver Observer on Wednesday morning.
These ladies will need to ratchet up the melodrama and bitchiness if they’re going to make this a multi-season show.

Doug), Ronnie Seterdahl Negus (the “bitchy one” who buys Christina an unfunny “goldigger/hooker” t-shirt for her birthday), and Reiko Mackenzie (who, despite the aforementioned scandalous history and a penchant for Ferraris, struck me as the most well-adjusted).
Since they’re setting up the cast and relationships, the first episode doesn’t really get going until the second half, when the ladies head to Whistler for a “girls getaway.” Before that, it’s mostly Vancouver real estate porn: we get a glimpse into Jody’s West Vancouver condo, Mary’s Yaletown condo, Christina’s Coal Harbour pad, Ronnie’s million West Vancouver mansion, and Reiko’s Shaughnessy home, which has a rather hilarious outdoor pool that looks like it was made out of faux rocks, Las Vegas-style. The “plot” centres around Christina’s 30th birthday party and Mary and Christina’s preparations for “confronting” Jody about her take-down at Whistler, but the confrontation itself doesn’t happen until the last ten minutes of the episode and isn’t very dramatic or interesting, anyway.
You just have to put yourself out there, go online—apparently one in five people meet online now—or you do activites that you like," Kiesel said."I don't like running or jogging so I probably wouldn't hit the trail to try and find someone.
