The real ‘Real Housewives’ have come to Canada. The Canadian installment is based in Toronto. The show premiered March 7th, 2017 and it seems like it will be a hit! So, let’s meet the women.
Kara is a notable member of Toronto’s social elite. She spends the bulk of her days arranging/attending charity fundraisers and attending fashion shows. Kara has struck up friendships and of course feuds with many of the other wives and effortlessly floats between the old and new money crowds. She has born-again Christian values which sometimes places her at odds with the other liberal-thinking housewives.
Ann Kaplan Mulholland
A mix of beauty and brains, Ann is one-of-a-kind. She is a self-made business woman who spends most of her days as the CEO and President of iFinance Canada Inc. (the parent company to Medicard, Petcard and Dentalcard). In addition to running her business empire, Ann is also an author, public speaker, media personality and a huge public supporter of Fashion Cares. She’s earned everything she has, making her completely unapologetic about her extravagant lifestyle. Ann has been married for 15 years to one of Toronto’s top plastic surgeons. Between them, they have eight children (this is where it gets confusing) two are solely hers, another two are her husbands, two are theirs together, and finally two others she took in after a tragedy struck her family.
Joan Kelley Walker
Joan grew up in the prairie town of Wilcox, Saskatchewan but that didn’t stop her from dreaming of a big city life. Elegant and composed, she first made her mark as a model, eventually adding television host, producer, writer and humanitarian to her resume. Joan is probably best known as the wife of Don Walker, CEO of Magna International, aka one of the richest men in Canada. They have two kids together, and she is step-mom of two sons from Don’s first marriage.
Jana is the CEO of her company ‘JOGA’ (Yoga for Jocks) and a single mother who is all about balancing family and business – with pleasure, of course! Jana’s not looking for Mr. Right but she is looking for “Mr. Right Now” as she continues to grow her fitness empire. Jana has spent a lot of time and money building her business. She currently has more than 300 certified trainers across Canada, who collectively train thousands of athletes, including professional players in the MLB, NBA and CFL. Having earned everything, herself through hard work and perseverance, it’s not hard to see how she could be easily annoyed by women who’ve had everything handed to them by their husbands. Jana can often be found jet setting with Joan or hanging out with Grego.
Roxy has big style, big personality, and an even bigger bank account. She is the second wife to Toronto tech investor Raghu, but don’t you dare call her a trophy wife. Roxy was a successful marketing and advertising executive before getting married. Being a younger wife, she knows women may see her as a threat. But she’s happily married, confident and has all the money in the world she really doesn’t care.
Gregoriane (aka Grego) Minot
Grego is a proud mother of two who lives in the moment, and is the life of the party. Grego was adopted when she was 2 weeks old and was raised in Montreal calls Toronto home. Known for her work as a French-Canadian actress, she put her career on hold to start a family. She is married to nightclub owner and restaurateur Pierre Jutras, who runs Toronto’s members-only Spoke Club. Grego has crossed paths with most of the wives before because some hold memberships to her husband’s clubs. She has been friends with Joan for some time now and is neighborhood friends with Jana.
