The REAL reason Gina Liano left The Real Housewives of Melbourne revealed – after fans threatened to boycott the new season over her exit

The departure of Gina Liano from the fifth season of The Real Housewives of Melbourne has left fans up in arms. 

Now Foxtel’s Brian Walsh has revealed the real reason Gina, 55, has made an exit from the reality show, revealing the past year of lockdowns and the Covid pandemic saw the barrister reevaluate her life and rediscover her passion for the law. 

‘It gave her an opportunity to re-evaluate and rediscover her love of practising law and she conducted a lot of her business virtually last year and she rekindled that great deep affection she has for her profession,’ he told The Daily Telegraph.

Brian says that Gina has moved from Melbourne to Sorrento to begin a new life.

He added: ‘She said to me you know what Brian, I love the Real Housewives and I had so much fun on the show but I love work more.

‘I love what I do in my professional life and this journey for me is important. I just don’t feel I’m right to come back to the show and want to put all my focus and energy into law.’

It comes after long-time viewers lashed out after learning that original cast members Gina and Lydia Schiavello won’t be back.

Many flocked to social media to express their outrage, with a handful of fans vowing to boycott the series now that Gina and Lydia are gone. 

‘No Gina, No Lydia – why bother?’ snapped one, while another wrote: ‘Please don’t bother releasing it without Gina & Lydia. There, I said it.’
