Real Housewives of Melbourne Storyline for Janet Roach
Janet Roach joined “The Real Housewives of Melbourne” in season 1 in 2014.
During her season, Janet Roach had some confrontations with Gamble Breaux which comes to a climax as the two get into brawl about “rumors.” Even Gamble’s sister, Tempest, joined the assault on Janet at a Sydney art gallery, accusing her of spreading rumors that Gamble was a stripper who attended sex parties in the past. After the furious celebrity moved away from the disagreement, Gamble tried to take Janet back to the gallery, which resulted in a violent altercation. According to Janet, the resulting fallout was so stressful that she abruptly left the successful reality program.
After that, Janet had another verbal spat with Gamble Breaux in one of “The Real Housewives Of Melbourne,” episodes. “I know a heroin addict who says you f*** for heroin. I’ve got his NAME. So don’t f*** with me darling, I’ve done some research on you. I’m gonna destroy your life too!’,” Gamble unloaded.
The venomous outburst, which was in response to rumors about Gamble, including Janet labeling her a stripper, was, however, all made up. Gamble cooked up the entire speech to punish platinum blonde Janet, according to a short aside to the camera. “I’ve got a hothead. I don’t always think about what I’m saying. I thought I’d make up something about Janet to make her feel as bad as what I felt,” Gamble admitted.
Meanwhile, Gina Liano, who had her hair sprayed, rolled up to add another layer to the developing conflict. She soon volunteered her assistance to Gamble over a quiet supper for the two, eager to become involved in the drama.
Janet likewise expressed her concern about continuing with the program, knowing that Gina is adding fuel to the fire. “I got concerned about what (Liano and Breaux) were going to do. They told me, ‘We’re going to get you’. And I said, ‘Well, haven’t you already? ’” she said adding, “Gina is the one that would load the gun and then Gamble would shoot the bullets … They got together and just systematically made the season hell.”
Another shocking confrontation left faithful fans of “The Real Housewives of Melbourne” stunned as Janet Roach and Jackie Gillies had their first dispute when Gina Liano and Lydia Schiavello informed Jackie that Janet had been talking behind her back. Despite the on-screen drama, the two quickly patched things up, with Jackie writing “I love you” on Janet’s Instagram page at the time.
