Auckland – August 11, 2016 – The wait is over! The Real Housewives of Auckland, the first local version of the global smash-hit franchise, will premiere as a major TV event on Monday August 22 at 8.30pm on Bravo and simulcast on TV3.

Episode two will air exclusive to Bravo on Tuesday August 23 at 8.30pm and all remaining episodes at Tuesdays 8.30pm, only on Bravo.

The Real Housewives of Auckland gives an exclusive look into the galas, gossip and glamour of this group of luxury-loving ladies as they navigate the social scene of the city’s elite, all while juggling their husbands, boyfriends, careers and families.

Pedigree and status may grant an automatic invite to the glitziest gatherings in town, but one stiletto out of place could shift anyone on to the blacklist and trigger social suicide. Pecking orders and relationships are at stake when old-money meets new-money meets no-money, and these ladies soon realise who will survive the twists and turns, and who will be left in the dust to lick their wounds.
