TORONTO, Feb. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Va-va- Vancouver the Real Housewives are here. This spring Slice TM is indulging audiences with the year's most buzzed about new Canadian series, The Real Housewives of Vancouver . The first Canadian installment of the world's number one lifestyle reality franchise takes viewers on a wild ride into the extravagant lives of five of Vancouver's most privileged, powerful and glamorous women. Debuting with a special two-hour premiere event on Wednesday, April 4 th at 9:00pm ET/PT, the new series will settle into its regular time the following week, Wednesdays at 10:00pm ET/PT exclusively on Slice TM.

After much excited speculation, the secret about the wives is out and Slice TM is giving Canadians five hot new reasons to love Vancouver: Christina, Jody, Mary, Reiko and Ronnie.  The must-see first season introduces this elite group of women and reveals intimate and often outrageous details about their relationships, career triumphs and pitfalls, sex lives and family drama.

Get to know the The Real Housewives of Vancouver :

Christina Kiesel - free-spirited jet-setter Jody Claman - self-made businesswoman and fashionista Mary Zilba - singer and former pageant queen Reiko MacKenzie - adrenaline junkie with a need for speed Ronnie Seterdahl Negus - winery owner and luxury toy aficionado

These West Coast beauties love to live large in every sense including dining at top restaurants, partying at gala soirées, jet-setting on luxurious vacations, cruising in top-of-the-line cars, and shopping for the best designer clothes, shoes and jewelry. They stop at nothing as they try to re-launch a singing career, manage a high-end clothing boutique, train for a mixed-martial arts green belt, celebrate a land-mark birthday and start up a wine label.

" The Real Housewives of Vancouver is packed with all of the juiciest story lines, drama, power, wealth and glamour that viewers love about the huge, international hit franchise. Every episode will leave people wanting more," said Barbara Williams, Senior Vice President of Content, Shaw Media. "There's an insatiable appetite for the Housewives' series and we are thrilled to launch the first ever Canadian edition."

" Vancouver is the perfect choice to launch the Real Housewives series in Canada and we're proud to be a part of such a successful production franchise," commented Louise Clark, President, Executive Producer, Lark Productions. "We are delighted that Shaw and NBCUniversal have given us this opportunity to showcase this world-class city and exciting talent in a way that will definitely please both new and existing Real Housewives fans."
