Why Joan Kelley Walker’s Humble Beginnings Make Her The Perfect ‘Real Housewives’ Star

Joan Kelley Walker is just a small town girl, but she believes she’s the perfect fit for a show like “The Real Housewives Of Toronto”.

The Wilcox, Sask. native went from humble beginnings to a life of luxury when she married Magna International, Inc. CEO Don Walker. Despite her opulent lifestyle, though, she’s got her feet firmly planted on the ground.

She tells ET Canada’s Roz Weston, “I didn’t seek to be a wealthy person, so to me, the things that are a priority in life are your health, your family, your happiness – and that’s how I live my life.”

While Walker had the full support of her multi-millionaire husband before joining the show, it was actually “Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Rinna who inspired her to join the Toronto edition of the franchise.

“I know her from Muskoka, so I like her,” she says of Rinna. “I like everything about her.”
