Settle in socialites, because the Real Housewives of Melbourne are returning to our screens with three new additions this season, and they’re sure to bring all new D-R-A-M-A.

After the departure of Sally Bloomfield, Venus Behbahani-Clark and Jackie Gillies, Arena has finally announced their much-anticipated, and glamorous, successors.

Anjali Rao, Kyla Kirkpatrick and Cherry Dipietrantonio have all joined the fabulously chic originals, Lydia Schiavello, Janet Roach, Gina Liano and Gamble Breaux, for season 5.

At an event to promote the new series in Melbourne this morning, Foxtel’s Group Director, Jamie Campbell introduced the women, but not before telling the crowd: “We can’t wait for all the drama, there’s even been some this morning!”

So what do we know about our new housewives?
