Real Housewives of Melbourne: Chyka Keebaugh teases return

Chyka Keebaugh is the latest Real Housewives of Melbourne star to tease a return to the show.

This week, the 52-year-old hinted that viewers may see her back on screen this season after being quizzed about the show while appearing on Sunrise to promote her new homewares range.

‘Just watch this space, you never know, you may see me appear,’ she said cryptically.

Reflecting on her time on RHOM, Chyka said: ‘The girls were great. I had an incredible time and it was an amazing experience.’

The former reality star is now building her own lifestyle brand, and has just launched her own signature homewares line with Harris Scarfe.

While Chyka is extremely popular with viewers, Gina Liano is arguably the biggest star to come out of The Real Housewives of Melbourne. 

So it’s no surprise that fans were disappointed when the big-haired barrister decided not to return to the series for season five.

Now, in a new interview, the 55-year-old has hinted that she could come back for season six, but it will only be under one condition.

‘Put it this way, if the show needed saving, I would feel like, “oh god, I’ve gotta go in and fix this.” I’m a fixer,’ she told the Shine It Up podcast.

Gina added that she hasn’t decided whether or not she’ll return yet, and will only come back if the show truly needs her.

Both Gina and fellow original Housewife Lydia Schiavello opted not to return for season five, leaving the door open for four new cast members to join.

In September, she told The Advertiser that she walked away from the hit series to focus on her legal career.

She was originally set to return for the fifth season and was announced as a cast member last year, but it was put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, and filming didn’t begin until April. 

‘When season five got cancelled last year I threw myself into my career and when they spoke to me about the new series I thought, I can’t take six months off my practice, it’s just too destructive,’ she explained.

‘So I just thought now I’ll focus on my career, I’ve been a barrister since 1999, it’s enough.’

Gina also revealed she almost walked away from the show seven years ago but Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump convinced her to stay. 

She said: ‘I thought it would go under the radar and so when it got lots of attention I remember being a bit overwhelmed.’

‘Lisa Vanderpump said to stick with it and make it work…I had so many defending me and that’s why I did season two,’ she revealed.

Flashback: Season four’s Gina, Lydia Schiavello, Sally Bloomfield, and Venus Behbahani-Clark all exited the show before season five

Lydia, Gina, and Chyka have all left Real Housewives of Melbourne, along with season four newbies Venus Behbahani-Clark and Sally Bloomfield.

Season five saw the return of OGs Janet Roach and Jackie Gillies, as well as longtime cast member Gamble Breaux.

They also added four newbies with Kyla Kirkpatrick, Cherry Dipietrantonio, Simone Elliott, and Anjali Rao joining.
