British media is tough! I’d heard the tabloids were rough on the other side of the pond, but had no idea until researching this story. American audiences fell in love with “Ladies Of London” during its initial run in 2014. Apparently the Brits don’t appreciate its social scene being documented by Bravo TV cameras for the reality show.
After profiling Caroline Stanbury and Annabelle Neilson for this blog, I wanted to give new cast members Caroline Fleming and Sophie Stanbury an introduction to season 2 audiences. Scrolling through articles and profiles of Fleming for information i stumbled on scathing articles about “Ladies Of London” in Britain’s Daily Mail.
“Crown Princess Mary of Denmark’s best friend Danish aristocrat and Top Model presenter Caroline Fleming is set to star in TV show Ladies Of London, which bloggers and viewers have dubbed ‘trashy’.
A far cry from 43-year-old Princess Mary’s civilized life of royal appointments and charity soirées the Bravo TV show has been dubbed ‘the biggest celebrity catfight ever caught on camera’.
Posher than Made In Chelsea but with all the trappings of the Real Housewives franchise, the high society women serve up Champagne-fuelled cat fights, dinner parties and drunken tears.Former model Caroline, 39, the headline generating ex-wife of Rory Fleming, nephew of James Bond creator Ian Fleming, is set to join the cast of glamour models, muses and socialites for season two
British socialites go head-to-head with ambitious American upstarts as the show follows the lives of the glamorous businesswomen as they manoeuvre their way around the social circuit.
While Princess Mary is unlikely to want her life to make a cameo – which would undoubtedly be frowned upon – some of Caroline’s society stablemates do boast royal connections.
Prince Andrew’s ex-girlfriend Caroline Stanbury, 38, who has also dated Hugh Grant and Sylvester Stallone, is one of the show’s Chanel-wearing combatants.
The toffee-nosed blonde stars alongside former bestie glamour model Caprice Bourret, 43, as well as Annabelle Neilson, 45, former muse to the late Alexander McQueen and pals of Kate Moss and Sadie Frost, former model Noelle Reno, 31, social operator Juliet Angus and Marissa Hermer, 32.”

Perhaps the Daily Mail should check its facts before slamming the show? Noelle Reno is not returning to Ladies Of London for S2, nor is Caprice Bourret! It’s understandable ( But not OK! ) that the British press look down their noses on American reality TV that features the lives of Londoners. How very anti-establishment of US producers to draw back the curtain and give viewers a glimpse into London’s high society! Keep your heads up ladies. Your American audiences love you.

More to come about Caroline Fleming and Sophie Stanbury! I don’t want the Daily Mail’s views of “Ladies Of London” tainting their profiles.
