We’d heard a while back that Ladies of London had been renewed for a second season but have been wondering for some time now exactly when we’d be seeing more of our favorite (non) Housewives across the pond! Well, it seems the wait is almost over, Ladies’ fans!
Ladies of London Season 2 Premieres Monday, September 7 @ 10pm ET/PT!
This season brings us not one but TWO Carolines–as if the first one, Ms. Stanbury, wasn’t already awesome enough! And, it looks like her last-season rival, Caprice is out. (Goodness knows she must be keeping busy with TWO little babies to keep up with!) Also apparently out is season 1 cast member Noelle (to be honest I don’t remember a whole lot about her besides that she was dating a tabloid billionaire divorcee–so I suppose I’m ok missing her this time around.) And, how exciting that royalty AND nobility are also joining the cast! Read on for the scoop:
Set in the glittering, class-conscious city across the pond, the series follows a group of elite British socialites, wealthy American expats, and stunning Danish royalty who all run in the same exclusive circle. Although London is a diverse and cosmopolitan playground, these ladies are part of an extremely small, tight-knit upper-class community where it’s not always about how much money you have, but what title is in front of your family name. Alliances will be made and hearts may be broken, but London will surely never be the same as these fun-loving, fashion-minded divas take the city by storm.
This season brings an extra whimsical dose of fun from new cast member and Danish Baroness, Caroline Fleming (@CarolineFlemingOfficial). The former host of “Denmark’s Next Top Model” recently returned to London and is bursting back onto the scene. Julie Montagu (@JulieMontagu), also known as Lady Hinchingbrooke, is busy caring for her four kids and expanding her healthy living empire while her royal husband, Luke is away running their Mapperton estate. Saddled with being a full time mom herself, savvy fashion blogger Juliet Angus (@JulietAngus) is getting settled in her new home south of the Thames River while her husband Gregor is globetrotting for his new international tech job. As Annabelle (@AnnabelleNeilson1) continues to recover from her horse-riding accident, she turns her focus to creating a splash by penning a children’s book. Recently becoming a British citizen, Marissa Hermer (@MarissaHermer) is balancing life with her new baby and making a name outside the shadow of her restaurant/nightlife mogul husband, Matt. Meanwhile, Caroline Stanbury (@CarolineStanbury) is determined to secure her ranking as London’s premier elite entrepreneur by expanding her businesses, but as those dreams begin to crumble she still manages to mix it up with friends Caroline Fleming, sister-in-law Sophie Stanbury (@SJStanbury) and the other ladies.
And your first look at all the awesome, accented drama to come!
