On The Real Housewives of Melbourne episode ‘By Invitation Only,’ the bride-to-be Gamble Breaux hosts a cocktail party and invites all the ladies — even Pettifleur Berenger. (Gamble has been on the fence about inviting Pettifleur to her wedding.) Janet warns/advises Pettifleur about a friendship with Gamble (“I don’t trust her, I don’t believe her,” says Janet) but it’s not Gamble who stirs the pot first. It’s Lydia Schiavello.
At the party, Lydia says “Pettifleur looks very wound up” and says “she already has the claws out.” So Lydia, very quietly, invites Pettifleur for a private chat. Pettifleur accepts knowing that “there’s going to be a war.” Or as Bravo says of the scene, “Tension between Pettifleur and Lydia is about to explode.” The Real Housewives of Melbourne airs Fridays at 9pm on Bravo.
