Brought into the group through Kelly, new housewife Braunwyn is a mother of seven with a full house including a baby, toddler, twin kindergarteners and three teenagers. When she is not escaping to her love shack with husband Sean, Braunwyn is always ready for a mum’s night out as she gets to know these OC ladies in more ways than one.


Vicki finds herself in the hot seat once again after hopping on the rumour mill train.  But she doesn’t let that detour her way to happiness as her love tank is full when Steve finally pops the question that she has been eager to hear.
