SUBIACO Hotel got a taste of the glitz and glamour from the east coast with a visit from the Real Housewives of Melbourne ahead of its season four premiere on December 6.

Criminal barrister, entrepreneur and mum Gina Liano and quintessential “cosmopolitan housewife” Lydia Schiavello arrived in Perth on Sunday as part of a whirlwind trip promotional tour across the country.

Liano, an original cast member, said viewers could expect a fun series and one she hoped they would enjoy.

The straight-talking mother-of-two said the core group had been joined by her lawyer friend Venus Behbahani-Clark and former magazine editor and hotelier Sally Bloomfield.

Liano said viewers would see a softer side to some of the characters, including herself as she mourned the death of her father.

Despite previously having a rocky relationship with Schiavello, Liano said the duo were tighter than ever.

“Lydia was there for me during a tough time,” she said.

“I didn’t have to ask, she just turned up and helped out with whatever I needed.”

The entertaining 12-part one hour soap-doc looks at lifestyles of the wealthy and extravagant women in exotic settings and high-end events.

The series also airs in the US, UK and Canada.

The show will air on Foxtel’s Arena channel from Wednesday December 6 at 8.30pm.
