Bravo Announces New Show: 'The Real Housewives of Cheshire'



Broadwayworld.com:
Media gears up for a new flock of international housewives with the acquisition of "The Real Housewives of Cheshire" premiering Saturday, November 14, at 12 p.m. ET/PT, with additional episodes airing every Saturday also at 12 p.m. ET/PT. The 10-episode series follows the glamorous lives of six ladies who run in Cheshire's most exclusive social circle. Sharing drama and their lavish lifestyles will be housewives Tanya Bardsley, Leanne Brown, Magali Gorré, Ampika Pickston, Lauren Simon and Dawn Ward.

In Cheshire, a county in Northwest England, there are only two ways to move: up or out. Nicknamed the "Golden Triangle," it is known for its expensive homes, famous residents and spectacular countryside. In the premiere, Dawn Ward's annual Crème De La Crème Charity Ball, one of the biggest events on the Cheshire social calendar, quickly approaches but not without a few snafus along the way. It's a whirlwind of panicked last-minute dress fittings and big misunderstandings over tickets as the housewives prepare to make their grand appearance...even if they are unwelcome.

Meet the Cast:

Tanya Bardsley
Former model and current life coach, Tanya Bardsley, is a self-proclaimed party girl, shopping enthusiast and plastic surgery lover. Tanya loves watching her soccer player husband, Phil Bardsley, score goals on the Stoke City soccer grounds. The two were married at the prestigious Peckforton Castle in Cheshire and traveled to Las Vegas for their honeymoon with friend of 10 years and fellow housewife, Leanne Brown and her husband.

Leanne Brown
Leanne Brown is a happy housewife who loves shopping, a good party and frequent trips to the salon. She and husband Wes Brown, a defensive soccer player for Sunderland, met at a nightclub and together have three daughters: Hallie, Lilia and Lola. Leanne is currently in the process of launching a children's fashion line inspired by her own kids.
Magali Gorré
Originally from The Hague in Holland, bubbly and fiery Magali Gorré believes everything in life is about respect, not just money and riches. She and her husband of 21 years, ex-professional soccer player Dean Gorré, are the parents to three soccer-playing boys: Kenji, Quinten and Aidan. Magali is currently writing her third book and has written soccer columns for several media outlets including Esquire, Grazia and The Telegraph.

Ampika Pickston
Savvy businesswoman and recent divorcee, Ampika Pickston, loves to be wined and dined from her many potential suitors. She runs her own lavishly-decorated beauty salon and spa, Opium, catering to the rich and famous of Cheshire. Ampika has one son, Jake, and a puppy named Bella whom she rescued from the ANIMAL shelter where she volunteers.

Lauren Simon
Born and bred in Cheshire, Lauren Simon is a stay-at-home mother and self-proclaimed "domestic goddess" who loves coffee, chocolate and men - but all have to be rich. It's a good thing her husband of 10 years, successful businessman Paul Simon, can afford to pay for her expensive hobbies including diamond shopping and party planning. Before transitioning into her role as a full-time housewife, Lauren worked in public relations and marketing for VIP events and nightclubs.

Dawn Ward
Dawn Ward, a well-respected interior designer whose high-profile clients include British television presenters and models, has been married to Manchester City soccer player and businessman Ashley Ward for 19 years. With her impeccable eye for design, Dawn lives with her husband in a grand family home on multiple acres, which houses their four daughters, private horse stables, and a personal beauty salon. Dawn's annual charity ball, Crème de la Crème, has some of the most sought-after tickets in all of Cheshire.

"The Real Housewives of Cheshire" is produced by Monkey, part of NBCUniversal International Studios and distributed in the US by NBCUniversal International Distribution. Monkey is also responsible for producing Bravo's "Newlyweds".
