Meet Kara Alloway, one of the six ladies from the 6ix, ready to bring all the glamour and drama to “The Real Housewives Of Toronto”.
“The way I look at it, 50 per cent of the viewers are gonna love me, 50 per cent of the viewers are gonna hate me,” she tells ET Canada’s Roz Weston.
A self-proclaimed “devout fashionista,” Alloway is a born-again Christian who knows her values will sometimes place her at odds with the other liberal-thinking housewives. But that doesn’t mean she’s perfect.
“I don’t pretend I’m a perfect person,” she explains. “I mess up. I mess up on this show.”
Mother to three boys, Alloway spends her days organizing charity fundraisers and serving as a marketing director for her husband’s company. By night, she’s attending those same charity fundraisers, rubbing well-dressed shoulders with the elite of Toronto’s social scene. While she might be busy mingling with the who’s who of Toronto, Alloway admits she’s not into gossip.
“I always say, gossip is for people that have nothing going on in their lives,” she says. “If you saw my life – three boys, a husband, working, doing lots of charity work and what not – I don’t have time to gossip.”
While she shuns gossip, she’s not above asking for advice from another famous housewife: hotel heiress Kathy Hilton.
“Kathy really was my mentor through a lot of this, and, you know, she’s had a lot of exposure to publicity and whatnot. Good publicity and bad publicity,” she tells ET Canada. “She said to me, ‘Remember, Kara, this is what you have to have in the back of your mind: I’m nice, but don’t mess with me.'”
“The Real Housewives Of Toronto” premieres Tuesday, March 7 on Slice.
