Andrea, mother of three and owner of Liberty Belle Skin Centre, is married to Dr. Chris Moss, a successful plastic surgeon, and also manages his business. She's working towards finishing a book designed to help other busy moms return to work. Andrea firmly believes women should seek paid employment and contribute to the household income once their children are of school age, even if that's only a casual or part-time job.
Chyka married her best friend Bruce, and together they built one of Australian's largest privately owned catering and event companies, The Big Group. Now this powerful duo is extending their business to include two new venues. Chyka and Bruce have two teenagers, who are following in their parent's footsteps as entrepreneurs.
Gina is a Barrister and a single mom of two boys and a Poodle. She's been in the legal field for 14 years and has represented some high profile clients. Gina loves to shop - it's Versace living all the way. She takes great pride in her appearance; she gets a spray tan every week and has her hair and nails professionally maintained.
Jackie is confident and opinionated. She's an in-demand professional psychic. Also a philanthropist and humanitarian, when Jackie isn't attending or hosting a high profile event, she's likely to be found enjoying an impromptu family dinner and a dance with her girlfriends. Jackie married Australian rocker Silverchair drummer Ben Gillies in 2010.
Janet caught her ex-husband cheating last year and immediately kicked him to the curb. She's proud of the fact that she's a self-made woman and worth more than her ex. A successful property developer, Janet is currently developing a massive over-55 lifestyle village. This fun-loving social butterfly enjoys attending luncheons and charity events and when the snow season comes she'll sneak away to hit the slopes.
Lydia is honest and calls it as she sees it. She recently wed renowned architect and property investor Andrew Norbury. Together Andrea and Lydia have an active and adventurous lifestyle, always wanting to fly Australia-wide at the drop of a hat. She's pursuing an interior design degree, an accomplished gourmet chef, and a die-hard fashionista. Lydia's Italian greyhound Figaro never leaves home without his very own Burberry coat.
