Overview and casting
In June 2016, it was announced that Canada would be receiving a second installment centred in Toronto. The show is the first spin-off, of The Real Housewives of Vancouver. The Real Housewives of Toronto aired on Slice in winter 2017, with the first season consisting of 10 episodes. The show follows six housewives and gives an “intimate look at the luxurious lives of the city’s wealthiest women, from their extravagant day-to-day escapades in Toronto to grandiose getaways to their exclusive colossal cottages in Muskoka – Ontario's playground for the rich and famous.” It had been reported that filming for the first season began on July 18, 2016. On July 19, 2016, the following day of when filming had allegedly begun, actress Ariane Bellamar made claims that she had been cast as a housewife but was let go. Bellamar alleges the termination is due to a date clash of her Caesarean section with an “all-cast retreat.” She says she intends to pursue legal action. On February 9, 2017, it was announced that the cast of the 10 part series would consist of Kara Alloway, Roxy Earle, Gregoriane "Grego" Minot, Ann Kaplan Mulholland, Joan Kelley Walker and Jana Webb. Slice promoted the show prior to its premiere, through various forms of social media and throughout Toronto. The show premiered on March 7, 2017, with its final episode of season 1 airing on May 9, 2017.
