Real Housewives Of Melbourne – Gina Liano Hits Back
The Real Housewives of Melbourne had degenerated into a huge cat fight with most of the cast anti Gina Liano. Earlier this week it culminated in a blog post from a housewives “insider” saying negative things about Gina and Chyka.
PS: Another thing I wanted to ask you about is this blog post, which I’m sure you’re aware about. Do you know who wrote it?
Gina: I don’t know for sure, but someone actually posted as commentary, I think it was in a blog, this comment, on the 21st of April this year at 7:41 a.m. — I think it was about an hour-and-a-half before someone posted it on Twitter. It was about four hours before this anonymous person emailed me a copy of the letter. It said, ‘I have a friend who’s one of the producers and knows some of the girls formally, and he says behind the scenes is a mess.’ There has been a lot of communication going on on this site about Real Housewives. Then she says, ‘Some of them apparently reek of desperation for fame, and apparently Lydia has hired someone to write an anonymous blog attacking Gina so the audience will somehow be persuaded to be Team Lydia/Andrea before the reunion airs.’ The logic behind that is so brainless and pathetic. So that’s what was posted.
Now, the other thing was that Lydia had been posting from the night before, ‘Gina the cancer patient,’ and putting little images of me smoking cigarettes. She wouldn’t know anyway, I haven’t seen her since then; she would not know for one minute whether I smoke, do or don’t, or drink — she wouldn’t know anything. I have no contact with her at all. Occasionally I have a cigarette with Janet when we finish a shoot, or whatever, but she wouldn’t know. Her son smokes, my boys smoke, smoking’s around. It’s not a big deal, but for some reason she’s being a bit hideous about everything, about me. She thinks that will make me look bad, at least about my health.
She also started posting things in the morning about one of my followers or something, someone who was not very friendly to her, she posted things on Twitter like, ‘We’ll see what you think about Gina by the end of the day. Wait and see.’ It’s like she was pre-empting some tweets about what was coming. So that doesn’t make sense.
Now there are things in that email, things like cheap perfume — and I will say that at the reunion show I did have a cigarette with Alex Perry, and I do carry Impulse around, which is cheap perfume, so I can use it afterwards. So that tells me that someone there has written this. It’s definitely not a Foxtel employee; I know all the Foxtel employees and I get along famously with all of them. And Foxtel has actually made a statement to say it’s got nothing to do with Arena or Foxtel. It was really offensive things, like how my children were referred to as ‘offspring,’ but Andrea’s children were referred to as ‘babies.’ There was a lot of contempt in it, and there was a lot of detail in it, things like the perfume, that someone really had to have been there. Now whether there was a pin camera, I don’t know. . . I’m thinking there was no way it could have been Foxtel — the whole thing was recorded, what do they need a pin camera for? [Laughs] It doesn’t even make sense.
The interview also has other gems in it how Gina said it was quite a terrible time for her.
