###The Real Housewives of Dallas Season 1
Tuesday 12 April at 8:30pm - same day and date, Express from the US

Arena travels to the Southwest with cowboy boots, class, and a big dose of sass with The Real Housewives of Dallas. A natural expansion for The Real Housewives franchise, the extravagant, over-the-top city of Dallas is deeply rooted in Texan pride, where people believe that if they are lucky enough to live in the Lone Star State, they are lucky enough. The series delves into the lives of five sophisticated southern socialites – Cary Deuber, Tiffany Hendra, Stephanie Hollman, LeeAnne Locken and Brandi Redmond, along with their friend Marie Reyes – as they climb their way to the top of the city’s most exclusive circle. With big wallets, big hearts and even bigger drama, these ladies prove why you don’t mess with Texas, let alone a Housewife.

The Real Housewives of Dallas gives an exclusive look into the glamorous galas, scintillating scandals and enormous egos of this quintet of women as they navigate the social scene of the city’s elite, all while juggling their husbands, boyfriends and families. Pedigree and status may grant an automatic invite to the most exclusive gatherings in town, but one misstep could send anyone to the blacklist. 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.

###Southern Charm Season 3
Tuesday 12 April at 9:30pm - Express from the US

This season, the rollercoaster romance between Thomas and Kathryn becomes even more complex as the two welcome a second Ravenel baby and struggle to co-parent successfully. Their tumultuous relationship creates a group divided as new feuds emerge and old feuds die hard. Meanwhile, southern belle Cameran, whose booming real estate ventures find her in bed with Shep, at least professionally, must decide if she ever wants to board the baby train and enter motherhood. After a detox in Delaware, Craig returns to Charleston determined to prove he’s a changed man, thanks in part to his new girlfriend, Naomie. As Whitney contemplates the notion of leaving Charleston for good to follow his passion for film production, Craig accuses him of running away from his true love and personal scandal back at home. But not everyone is eager to settle down. Shep, the resident bachelor and ladies’ man, finds a new partner-in-leisure in Landon, who’s just as dedicated to riding the waves of life. However, Landon has a revelation that could change their decade-long friendship forever.

###Shahs of Sunset Season 5

This season brings highs and lows, as relationships are put to the test for Reza Farahan, Asa Soltan Rahmati, Mike Shouhed, Mercedes “MJ” Javid, Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, and Shervin Roohparvar. As they each embark on a new life journey, they face challenges in business, love, and lifelong friendships. When rumours of infidelity and irresponsible lifestyles shake the group to its core, allegiances are put to the test. Can they come together and maintain the bonds of friendship through the good times as well as the bad?

After last year’s broken engagement, Reza faces a difficult crossroads in his relationship with Adam. Ready to finally take the plunge, he contemplates throwing a surprise wedding, but is confronted with harsh resistance from his closest friend MJ, who is dead-set against the ambush. Working with her parents in a new business venture, Asa rediscovers her passion for fashion with the debut launch of her kaftan line, Asa Kaftans. But when new-world and old-world values collide, Asa is forced to reconcile her love of family with the challenge of building a new company from the ground up. Mike’s first year of marriage with Jessica proves difficult to navigate as cheating rumours threaten to destroy their marriage and his friendships. Driven by financial pressure and a lifelong passion for shoes, Mike risks his financial future as he launches his own fashion line. MJ may have found the man of her dreams in new boyfriend Tommy, but her tenuous relationship with her mother, Vida, threatens to destroy her chance at love. GG comes face-to-face with her greatest demon yet, as she fights the crippling effects of Rheumatoid Arthritis. But when her inner circle casts doubt on the severity of her illness, she struggles with perhaps the toughest decision of all: moving on without the support of her friends.

This season, preacher and patriarch, Ben faces the stark reality that the Tankard household has become an empty nest and also realises there are deep emotional wounds that need to be healed within the family, mainly between him and his eldest daughter Brooklyn. Embracing a new chapter in her life, Jewel prepares to welcome her grandchild and launch her very own nationally syndicated television talk show while trying to reconnect with Cyrene, who went to her freshman year of college meek and mild, but reemerged as a certified wild child. Meanwhile, Britney, healthier than ever, is unable to shake the notion that a baby is what’s missing most in her life and embarks on a journey to make her dreams of motherhood come true while Benji and Shanira eagerly await the arrival of their first child. Marcus plans to expand his ministry into Nashville but can’t hide his frustration with his family’s adamant criticism of his wife’s parenting skills. From an eye-opening girls trip to Jewel’s hometown of Detroit to a traumatizing secret haunting Cyrene, it’s a season of breakthrough and transformation that forces the family to embrace each other and move forward to a place of joy and love.

###Million Dollar Listing New York Season 5

Meanwhile, Luis says “adios” to his quarter-life crisis as he takes on more responsibility than ever, but realises that finding his identity may be his toughest deal yet. Always expanding, Ryan’s business sees record growth, but he soon finds that maintaining massive sales and juggling his engagement may be too much to negotiate. In a city where it’s survival of the fittest, this season will determine once and for all if there’s room enough at the top for all three agents.

###RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE ALL STARS - SEASON 2

Premieres Friday 26 August at 8.30pm AEST Express from US

Hot off the heels of one of the most electrifying seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Mama Ru will return to the runway for RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 2 and, in a win for viewers, Foxtel has announced it will be airing express from the US from Friday, August 26 at 8.30pm on a new channel - Arena.

In this second All Stars instalment, YouTube sensation Todrick Hall joins Carson Kressley and Michelle Visage on the judging panel alongside RuPaul for a season packed with more eleganza, wigtastic challenges and twists than Drag Race has ever seen.

The series will also feature some of RuPaul’s favourite celebrities as guest judges, including Raven-Symone, Ross Matthews, Jeremy Scott, Nicole Schedrzinger, Graham Norton and Aubrey Plaza.

Foxtel’s Head of Channels, Stephen Baldwin commented: “We know how passionate RuPaul fans are. Foxtel has been working closely with the production company, World of Wonder, and Passion Distribution and we are thrilled they have made it possible for the series to air in Australia just hours after its US telecast.”

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 2 will see 10 of the most celebrated competitors vying for a second chance to enter Drag Race history, and will be filled with plenty of heated competition, lip-syncing for the legacy and, of course, the All-Stars Snatch Game.

The All Stars queens hoping to earn their place among Drag Race Royalty are: Adore Delano (S6), Alaska (S5), Alyssa Edwards (S5), Coco Montrese (S5), Detox (S5), Ginger Minj (S7), Katya (S7), Phi Phi O’Hara (S4), Roxxxy Andrews (S5) and Tatianna (S2).

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 2 will screen Fridays at 8.30pm from August 26 on Foxtel’s Arena.

I found it strange last night that Housewives of Sydney was advertised on FTA 7.30-8.00pm AEST “tonight on Foxtel” - it would have been on air at that time. FTA must be desperate for the advertising dollars.

EIGHT REALITY FRANCHISES

The popular reality series will be available to stream on Foxtel and screen on Arena with an encore primetime screening at 8:30pm AEST.

This season, Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd are joined by two feisty new housewives Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter. As the ladies face life’s ups-and-downs, they value the importance of each other’s support and friendship more than ever before.

After the surprising reconciliation between Vicki, Tamra and Shannon at last season’s reunion, the ladies are working to rebuild their friendship and regain each other’s trust. But they all know it will take more than a hug to repair the rumours, betrayal and damage done over the years.

Newly single, Shannon and Kelly have both moved into new homes and find that they are approaching their post-divorce life very differently, as they navigate the dating world, raise their daughters and launch their own careers. Vicki and Steve’s relationship is still going strong, but the OG of the OC wants him to commit and be more than just a boyfriend. Meanwhile, Tamra fears that a health scare for Eddie could have bigger consequences than just sidelining her husband from CUT Fitness. In the spirit of reconciliation and new beginnings, Tamra brings her estranged friend Emily and acquaintance Gina into the group to shake things up in the OC.

Meet the new Housewives:

Emily Simpson
A true rags-to-riches story, Emily is an Ohio transplant who came from nothing and willed herself to great success to become an attorney, a part-time party-planer, a wife and a mum. However, motherhood has been a bumpy road for her after years of fertility and pregnancy issues. Resigned to the fact that she could not successfully carry her own children, Emily’s sister Sarah stepped in as a surrogate for all three of Emily and her husband Shane’s children - daughter Annabelle and twin boys Luke and Keller. With three children under five, and two step-daughters from Shane’s previous marriage, Emily and Shane, are trying to plan out the future of their family and their careers together. Emily planned Tamra’s baby shower for granddaughter Ava a few years back, but had a falling out with her shortly after befriending some of Tamra’s former besties. Now focusing on mending the toxic relationships in her life, Emily hopes that she can find true friendships with the ladies.

Gina Kirschenheiter
This expressive outsider from Long Island is shaking up Southern California and its politically correct Orange County ways. As a mother of three kids under the age of 5, Gina keeps her expectations low and her patience high. With her husband working and living in Los Angeles during the week, Gina is a single mum of sorts, which causes her to re-evaluate what she wants and needs in her marriage. Having only lived in Orange County for 3 years, she is still acclimating and is quickly learning that friendships in the OC aren’t always what they seem.

Familiar face Destiney Rose is back and when Mike introduces Branding Executive Nema Vand to the crew, the self-professed “white-washed Persian” wastes no time shaking things up. Still reeling from last year’s pitfalls, these tight-knit Shahs must confront deep-rooted issues – both within themselves and amongst the group – in order to lift each other up and take the next steps toward their future.

This season, MJ is poised to marry her Prince Charming Tommy in true Shahs fashion, but her pre-wedding glow is dulled when her opinionated mother Vida gets involved and her father’s health begins to rapidly decline. When MJ finds herself plagued by indecision and self-doubt, the whole crew must come together to keep her steady and help get her down the aisle. Well into the second year of wedded bliss, Reza and his husband Adam are in the process of renovating their brand new house and settling down, but tensions build when one of Reza’s investments interferes with Adam’s surrogacy plans. Mike, ever the alpha-male with unrealistically high expectations, is determined to find the next Mrs. Shouhed, but does not take well to bestie Reza’s input on his dating choices, leading to a heated standoff during MJ’s bachelorette party in Vegas. Destiney is eager to dip her toes into the dating pool, but realises she must confront her own trust issues first. In an attempt to find peace, she hires a private detective to track down her absentee father, but what she finds leaves her questioning whether she can handle the truth.

After a recent failed marriage, GG is on a quest for independence, but rethinks her decision to remain single and try for a baby on her own when newcomer Nema showers her with attention. Joining this audacious crew is never easy, but Nema manages to hold his own and quickly finds himself in a complicated love triangle. Looking to get to the root of his ongoing relationship struggles as an adult, the group bands together to help Nema gain the confidence to confront his unconventional family about his broken upbringing.

Kate immediately bonds with Josiah, her first male stew, but when their friendship turns into an exclusive clique, Caroline is left out.

But despite his confidence, Chandler begins to crack under the pressure, and his deckhands Ross and Ashton poke holes in his managerial technique. Ross, a bosun on his last charter, steps up when the stress of the excruciating season gets to Chandler, while Rhylee, a green female deckhand but experienced Alaskan fishing boat captain, requires more guidance from Chandler than he anticipated.

Express from the US at 1:35pm and encore primetime screening at 8:30pm AEDT

The City of Angels serves up a slice of heaven when The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returns for season 9, express from the US, Wednesday February 13 at 1:35pm AEDT on Foxtel.

The hugely-popular reality series will be available to stream on Foxtel and screen on Arena with an encore primetime screening at 8:30pm AEDT.

Erika Girardi, Dorit Kemsley, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna , and Lisa Vanderpump are joined by new housewife Denise Richards and friend Camille Grammer for a jaw-dropping season sprinkled with exhilarating highs and shocking lows. The epitome of a working mum – perfectly blending her carefree California attitude with the glamour of a Hollywood actress – newcomer Denise uses her very-direct demeanor to carve out a place amongst the opinionated group, which she finds is both a blessing and a curse.

This season, the stakes are higher than ever for each of the ladies, and while there is no shortage of laughs, they are forced to navigate a string of confrontations that could change the dynamic of the friends group forever. Following her brother’s recent passing, Lisa Vanderpump puts all her energy into her family, work demands and maintaining a positive attitude. Kyle is settling into her new house after a well-publicised robbery and sending her daughter Sophia off to college, all while trying to determine the future of her Beverly Hills clothing store. Feeling like she’s found her mojo, Dorit is expanding her swimwear line to include a lifestyle brand, but working against tight deadlines makes her realize she may have bitten off more than she can chew. Meanwhile, Erika takes the ultimate leap of faith – and financial risk – when she embarks on an Erika Jayne National Tour, hoping her fans will show up to support her. As her business flourishes into a multi-million dollar empire, the always-on-the-go Teddi must adjust to the newfound pressures of running her company while simultaneously maintaining her supermum status. Lisa Rinna begins to wonder if acting still excites her, while coping with an empty household, as her husband is constantly traveling and her model daughters are getting ready to leave the nest. Camille is prepping for her wedding day and though she is more than ready to leave the past behind, moving forward might not be as easy as she had hoped.

Mexican Dynasties

Brand new reality series heads south of the border

Begins Wednesday 27 February

Express from the US at 2:30pm and encore primetime screening at 9:30pm AEDT

Jet off to the cultural mecca of Latin America when the brand new reality series Mexican Dynasties premieres, express from the US, Wednesday February 27 at 2:30pm AEDT on Foxtel.

The series which offers a glimpse into Mexico City, home to a class of secret elites, will be available to stream on Foxtel and screen on Arena with an encore primetime screening at 9:30pm AEDT.

Full of the unexpected – fashion, unique restaurants, and museums aplenty – Mexico City is a tastemaker’s dream. Three family dynasties – the Allendes, the Bessudos and the Madrazos – whose fortunes stem from the entertainment, beverage and luxury car industries, respectively, offer a glimpse into the multilayered, complex culture found in Mexico. Connected to each other through a string of personal and professional relationships going back decades, these families have Mexico City and all of its offerings in the palms of their hands. With both humour and heart, they challenge stereotypes, raise a few eyebrows and proudly showcase their over-the-top lifestyles. And in a world where the bonds of family know no bounds, they prove that blood is always thicker than tequila.

The Allendes, the Bessudos and the Madrazos perfectly embody the hallmarks of their Mexican culture, one that is outrageously fun, traditional and forward-thinking. Family is at the root of all their successful pursuits, but a bond this tight breeds both exhilarating highs and challenging lows. Megastar and 80s heartthrob Fernando Allende and his devoted wife of 30 years, Mari Allende, struggle to cope with the fact that their sons Elan and Adan Allende are not as close as they once were, which drives a wedge within the family. With Elan and his wife Jenny Allende busy raising their two young children and flourishing in their music careers, Adan is left to make a name for himself in the industry solo. As the brothers vie to fill their famous father’s shoes, tensions between Mari and her outspoken daughter-in-law come to a head.

Public Relations maven Doris Bessudo makes a temporary move from Beverly Hills to Mexico City to help her mother, famed fashion critic Raquel Bessudo, pick up the pieces following the death of the family patriarch. As Doris and Raquel adjust to living under the same roof, the mother-daughter duo quickly clash over their shared space, and Doris realizes that leaving behind her Beverly Hills community – which includes her cousin Mauricio Umansky and his wife Kyle Richards – is not as easy as she thought. When Adan turns to Doris for advice on his road to superstardom outside his father’s shadow, conflicting opinions from his parents lead to a tug-of-war between the two families.

Meanwhile, siblings and partners-in-crime Oscar and Paulina Madrazo find themselves at a crossroad in their intertwined lives. Doing everything from co-parenting each other’s children to co-hosting their popular television show “Qué Madrazo,” these self-proclaimed “soul mates” share a zest for life and a bond that might just be a little too close for comfort. When divorcée Paulina falls head-over-heels for an old friend, however, Oscar is forced to explore his own independence. With his children approaching their teenage years, a concerned Paulina pushes him to dip his toes back into the dating pool. As each of these dynasties work through their individual emotional journeys, they adhere to the one guiding principle that unites them all: the party must always go on.

Mexican Dynasties is produced by Shed Media and Campanario Entertainment, with Pam Healey, Lisa Shannon, Barrie Bernstein, Scott Teti and Paulina Williams serving as executive producers from Shed Media and Jaime Dávila and Rico Martinez serving as executive producers from Campanario Entertainment.

This season, after the tragic death of her boyfriend Dennis, Bethenny struggles with conflicting emotions while unexpectedly meeting someone new. Fresh off her second stint in rehab after last year’s relapse, Luann is committed to her new love: cabaret! But will she ever get back on track with Dorinda after being heckled at her debut? Meanwhile, Sonja is embracing her future by finally moving out of her beloved townhouse for a fresh perspective on the city she calls home. Looking for a fresh start, Dorinda moves into an apartment in midtown. But not all change is good, as she is forced to evaluate her friendship with Luann. Always the hopeless romantic, Tinsley is ready for the next step with Scott, but he may not be on the same page. Also on the love train, Ramona continues her search for Mr. Right, even when old flames threaten to throw her off course. And Barbara Kavovit, a good friend of Luann’s who stood by the former countess after her relapse, should fit right in as she is not afraid to speak her mind. Barbara is a successful businesswoman running her own construction company.

Bon Voyage! Set sail with a brand new season of Below Deck Mediterranean on the French Riviera. The popular reality series where the drama on board rivals the storms on the sea will premiere Tuesday June 4, express from the US at 1:35pm AEST on Foxtel.

Season 4, will be available to stream on Foxtel and screen on Arena with an encore primetime screening at 8:30pm AEST.

The new crew joining them on board the Sirocco mega yacht include Mila Kolomeitseva (Chef), Aesha Scott (Second Stew), Anastasia Surmava (Third Stew), Travis Michalzik (Deckhand) and Jack Stirrup (Deckhand).

Captain Sandy may be navigating the Sirocco mega yacht again, but she brings a new level of leadership in season four. With high expectations, she has no tolerance for anything short of perfection and will take drastic measures if the crew cannot deliver.

New chef Mila, classically trained in French culinary cuisine, becomes the first female chef in franchise history, but after a bout with food poisoning right as the first charter guests are set to arrive, she will have her work cut out for her.

Chief stew Hannah, looking to right her wrongs from last season, is hoping for smooth sailing with a strong interior crew. But will choppy waters threaten her redemption? Second stew Aesha, coping with a difficult past and using humor to get through tough times, is ready to hit the high seas and get another charter under her belt. While third stew Anastasia, as a child of an immigrant mother, has a strong sense of pride in her work ethic, which takes her on an unexpected journey.

Jo ã o is looking for a fresh start and is laser focused on being the best Bosun for the crew, but not everyone is on board. For deckhand Colin, feeling homesick, he quickly finds himself on the outs after trying to connect with the new deck crew. After a few mishaps, new deckhand Travis begins to question leadership, however, it’s his “work hard, play hard” mentality that comes into question by the rest of the crew. And Jack ruffles feathers when the crew notices he’s putting more effort into pursuing a crew member than his actual job.

This season Tamra is moving on up, as she settles into her new home behind the gates of the neighbourhood that started it all, Coto de Caza. With Eddie’s heart condition on the mend, she finds herself nursing the relationships around her as she is caught in the middle, not only at home with her two sons Ryan and Spencer arguing over their beliefs, but also with Vicki and Kelly, who both refuse to back down.

Having shed over forty pounds and the baggage of her marriage, Shannon is back on the fun bus as she juggles her many suitors. It’s her year of transformation, as she tightens and lightens and does her best to avoid the negativity around her.

After enjoying her short stint of the single life, Kelly has ditched her “bench” in favour of her new boyfriend, Dr. Brian, a plastic surgeon.
