'I SAVE MY BEST POT-STIRRING FOR THE KITCHEN'
Well your favourite ladies are back with a bang. Season 4 premiere ticked all the boxes and more! Lydia, Gina, Gamble, Jackie and Janet are back with two new friends (or foes – that is yet to be determined) thrown into the mix in the addition of Venus and Sally.
SEASON 4 EPISODE 1 RECAP
LYDIA & GINA'S
Gina and Lydia’s friendship has come full circle, with the two women growing closer since the death of Gina’s father. “Lydia has been such an amazing support in the last twelve months. She was there with undivided attention when my Father passed away. I don’t even know where she came from – she was like an angel!” While Gina is grateful for Lydia’s support throughout such a difficult time in her life, it seems the same can’t be said of the other girls, and her disappointment particularly with Gamble, is clear.
We are introduced to new girl Sally, a friend and associate of Janet's. Lydia shares her new cooking class concept with her husband Andrew, and Janet hosts a party at her new man's mansion with all the girls in attendance. It doesn't take long for tensions arise with Gamble's arrival, both confronting Gina and creating an awkward situation for Venus and her husband.

SEASON 4 EPISODE 3 RECAP
Venus and James are still smarting from Gamble's mockery of their 'lord and lady' titles despite Gina and Lydia's advice to let it go. Chyka invites Janet, Jackie and Sally to her huge country cottage to catch up on the girls' latest antics. Gamble hosts her stepson Luke's 21st fairy themed party where it is revealed that Venus allegedly has some compromising photographs of the girls on her phone.
DISHING THE DIRT
Sally and Gamble get together over lunch to discuss the mystery surrounding Venus and the photos. Venus advises her younger sister Rebecca that it’s time to tell their father that her wedding is off. Lydia organises a day of truffle hunting in the country, giving Sally the chance to confront Venus about the photos. Meanwhile Janet, Jackie and Gamble chopper off to Levantine Hill Vineyard. The three are determined to get to the bottom of the mystery surrounding Venus, and with Janet’s latest intel, things are set to get interesting.

GAMBLE vs VENUS
Sally invites the girls to celebrate the launch of her accessories line, but things go a little pear shaped when Gamble and Venus lock horns and Lydia stirs things up with Jackie and Janet.
IT'S MY PARTY & I'LL
INVITE WHO I WANT TO
Venus, Lydia and Gina catch up but it’s the ongoing feud between Lydia and Jackie that dominates the conversation. Unsurprisingly, Jackie has a very different take on things to Lydia and she heads over to Chyka’s place for a chat. After successfully launching her accessories range Sally is now preparing to open her hotel in Bali. When Gamble shares her suspicions that their new house is haunted with Rick and Luke, the boys aren’t so sure. Then, the girls celebrate Jackie’s 37th birthday in style, with the notable exception of Lydia. Jackie takes everyone by surprise by inviting them on an overseas trip, motivating Venus to patch things up with Gamble.

The housewives arrive in beautiful Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, ready to kick up their heels and have some fun, but while six of them are sipping cocktails, Venus is back in Melbourne desperately searching for her misplaced passport. Gina, Lydia and Sally decide to ease into holiday mode and stay by the pool. Feeling adventurous, Jackie, Gamble and Janet go in search of Cabo's best taco.

All the arguing overshadows Venus' arrival and Gina's treatment of Gamble prompts a clash with Sally.
