Jackie Gillies Talks New Ladies, New Fights in Season 2 of "Real Housewives of Melbourne"
The Real Housewives of Melbourne has been upgraded.

After Bravo aired the reality series from Down Under on Sunday afternoons last year, season 2 moves to Thursday nights, and star Jackie Gillies promises, "There's drama, there's tears, there's arguments – happy moments, too. There's a lot of comedy this season, I will say."

But, let's be honest, we don't come to our Housewives for laughs, we come for the glass-throwing antics.

With two new cast members entering the fray (regular Andrea Moss exited after season 1), Gillies promises there will plenty of fresh strife. Here are the highlights:  

One of Melbourne's most controversial figures in season 1 was Gina Liano, a heavily made up, foul-mouthed Housewife who never missed an opportunity to remind the ladies, "I'm a lawyer. I deal in fact."

"Gina and I definitely get into it this season," Gillies says. The previous bench mark? Liano accused Gillies, who is psychic, of talking to demons after Gillies insinuated Liano's long-term (now ex-) boyfriend was having an affair.

But that incident was on camera. As things heat up this season, Gillies says plenty of off-camera shadiness will occur: "What's frustrating to the other cast members is that Gina's not always herself on camera. She's very controlled."

She adds cryptically, "Sometimes when people are confronted with the truth, they don't know how to handle it."

When asked if Liano is a truth-teller, Gillies, responds, "Absolutely not."
