Fan favourite Chyka Keebaugh teases a return to the Real Housewives of Melbourne: "Just watch this space"

Consider this the unofficial petition to bring Chyka back!

While most viewers of the Real Housewives franchise tune in to watch dramatic scenes of wealthy women squabbling, beloved former cast member Chyka Keebaugh became an instant fan favourite for her calm temperament and nurturing nature.
And in music to our ears, the Melbourne mother-of-two, who first appeared on our screens back in 2014 in the debut season before departing after season three, has teased a return to the hugely successful reality show.
Speaking to Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies on The Morning Show, the event planner revealed she was asked to return for the highly-anticipated fifth season which is currently airing.
"Just watch this space, you never know, you might see me appear," she said when asked if she'll enjoy a cameo on the current season.

Chyka revealed she is "still really good friends with" Jackie Gillies, Gamble Breaux and Janet Roach.
"The girls were great. I had an incredible time," she said.
"It was an amazing experience and at the time [I was on the show] I think I was like 45 and I thought 'who's ever going to get an opportunity like this again?' So I thought I'll go for it and see what happens.
Chyka, who owns event planning behemoth The Big Group with her husband Bruce, said the show gave her opportunities to pursue writing a book and creating a homewares range.
"It's been fun. No regrets," she said.
Chyka's glowing words about her three-season stint on RHOM comes two months after she was the victim of a "photoshopping scandal" at the hands of former castmate Lydia Schiavello.
Lydia uploaded a throwback photo of herself alongside fellow Chyka, Pettifleur Berenger and Janet Roach earlier this year.
The photo cause a massive stir online after fans noticed Chyka looked a lot heavier set in her mid-section, and subsequently accused Lydia of maliciously photoshopping the 52-year-old to look bigger.

"What is the point in pulling another woman down... I'm all about positivity, empowerment and raising women up," Chyka wrote on Instagram.
Chyka later revealed she wasn't sure why Lydia shared the 2014 photo in the first place.
"We haven't actually spoken to each other for at least four years so I'm not really sure where this came from. I think it's a really strange thing to do," Chyka told Daily Mail.
"There's so much turmoil, horror and sadness in the world at the moment - no one really wants to see this. I truly believe in being positive because that's how we will all get through - not being derogatory to another woman."
