On The Real Housewives of Melbourne tonight, there’s some uncertainty down under as plans for Gamble Breaux’s wedding get under way — when it emerges she doesn’t even have a proper wedding planner.
The revelation emerges as Gina Liano attends a dress fitting with Gamble with dress designer Alin. It soon emerges that he doesn’t have her proper dress ready yet — and says he’ll “somehow” get it done it time.
But then Gina asks some probing questions and soon learns that not only is Alin organising the dress — he’s taking charge of everything from the tablecloths to the cutlery too!
Gina’s expression is priceless as you can tell she thinks the wedding is heading for disaster, as she is pretty sure Alin has never done any proper wedding planning before.
A preview clip for tonight’s Season 3 Episode 2 of The Real Housewives of Melbourne, titled Old Sparks, New Starts, shows the footage of the fitting as Gamble tells Gina how it feels “freaky” being in a wedding dress again.
Alin looks on apprehensively as Gina inspects Gamble’s dress, and immediately finds something wrong with it. She says: “Would you have to wear that underneath, that underwear?”— pointing out an undergarment that can be seen through the lace around the thigh area.
Discussing the design, Gamble says she wants it “laced in pearls” among the flowers. But when Alin says he was thinking of getting rid of the flowers completely and instead having more “architectural lines”, the girls look on in horror.
Asked if they can see his new idea, Alin says it’s not been made yet, but that he’ll get it done “somehow”.
They then discuss how the wedding will take place on a beach, but Gina tells Gamble that, from experience, shoes are a difficulty when there’s sand involved — so in all likelihood she’ll end up wearing bare feet.
It then turns out that Alin is also organising everything, with Gamble saying she’d be “losing her mind” if Alin wasn’t helping her.
But Gina confides in the camera: “I don’t necessarily have a lot of faith in Alin. He’s not a wedding planner. I don’t think he’s ever done it before.”
When Gina questions his credibility, Gamble says he “seems to know what he’s doing” and is “always at these amazing weddings”. But Gina says: “He’s always at them…but can he do it?”
She adds to the camera: “Has he planned them? No. Has he planned to go to them? Probably. It’s a bit different.”
Also on tonight’s episode, Gamble heads out looking for inspiration for wedding gifts with Chyka and Suzie but the conversation quickly focuses to Lydia’s betrayal of Pettifleur.
Meanwhile Janet’s ex-husband has also phoned her up randomly with something he wants to talk about over a meal — and Jackie thinks they could get back together.
Suzie also spends some time with Pettifleur and the pair concoct the idea of a horse-riding vacation.
