Amanda is a woman with a lot of baggage – and not just the Louis Vuitton
variety! Joining the cast for Season Two, Amanda is best described as a
bad girl gone good. A recovering alcoholic, Amanda has given up her
partying ways and found strength in a life of sobriety and healthy
Although Amanda has traded in her wild lifestyle, she’s far from being
tame. A self-confessed sex addict with a short temper, she enjoys a
passionate and fiery relationship with her gorgeous long-distance
boyfriend, Kyle, who lives south of the border in Seattle, WA.
Recently divorced from a man who took care of everything, Amanda doesn’t
have to work to maintain her luxurious lifestyle, and her main focus
lies on raising her three children, ages 10, seven and five, on
Vancouver’s North Shore.
She believes that honesty is always the best policy. As a result,
Amanda is quick to call people out on their lies and bad behavior – a
trait which earns her a lot of respect…and enemies!
Joining the cast for Season Two, Ioulia (pronounced Yoo-lee-ah) is a Russian-born beauty who
immigrated to Canada over 11 years ago with her family.
Married to a wealthy venture capitalist almost 20 years her senior,
Ioulia has a fierce desire to build a career and be independent but
currently relies on her husband for financial support as she tries to
find her feet. Having studied at Sotheby’s in London, Ioulia hopes to
make her mark as a broker in the high stakes art world.
While Ioulia’s marriage may garner cynicism from the other wives, she
and her husband of five years are deeply in love. They share a passion
for art, fashion and luxury cars. Ioulia also prides herself on being
the cool stepmother of his four children. Ioulia and her husband live in
the prestigious Coal Harbour.
With an exotic accent, a fiery Russian temper and a unique sense of
humour that doesn't always translate, Ioulia frequently elicits a raised
eyebrow or headshake from the other wives, who can't quite figure out
if their new comrade is a friend or a foe!

They say everything’s bigger in Texas and Robin’s outgoing personality is
certainly proof of that. Robin moved to Vancouver from the Lone Star
State 19 years ago and brought with her a deep southern twang and a
passion for riding horses. A mother of two young girls, Robin lives a
country chic lifestyle complete with two nannies, a Point Grey home and a
Prada saddle for her European Warmblood horse, Giggy – all thanks to a
healthy settlement from her recent divorce – yeehaw!
Joining the cast for Season Two, Robin feels that Vancouver women need
to loosen up and start breaking the rules. Although her southern roots
are founded on strong Christian values, Robin’s appetite for gossip and
penchant for partying often put her at odds with her belief system, and
the other wives. But adversity is no sweat for this southern belle.
With eight years of experience working in Dallas-area prisons, Robin is a
tough-as-nails straight shooter with a heart as big as Texas and a
mouth to match!
