The Real Housewives of Cheshire welcomes some new faces for its third series on ITVBe.
Founder and design director of Forever Unique, Seema Malhotra, will join The Real Housewives of Cheshire for the coming third season. Seema, 45, launched her fashion empire in 2008 alongside husband Sandeep, and quickly established her label as a go-to, aspirational, luxury fashion brand worn by celebrities including Miley Cyrus and Ashley Roberts.
From glamorous cocktail dresses to luxury swimwear, Forever Unique is a fashion favourite among all the housewives. With an additional 13 year’s credentials in the retail and wholesale industry before setting up Forever Unique, Seema’s 23 years of fashion experience also includes time spent studying Fashion and Desi gn at Salford University.
Opening up the doors to life in Cheshire, Seema’s husband Sandeep and her two sons, Neil and Aaron, will also feature in the show. Outside of work, Seema is a keen charity worker, supporting the British Asian Trust and Once Upon A Smile.
In her spare time she enjoys nothing more than to indulge her lust for fashion, as well as reading, travelling the world, cooking, attending global fashion weeks, maintaining a strict health and fitness regime and, above all, spending time with her children.
“I’ve been approached to star in the show previously and it’s never been the right time, as I run my own fashion company Forever Unique and life is always pretty manic! The label is now in a very exciting place so the show is a great opportunity for me to share this, have some fun with the housewives and bring a bit of style to the show. I can be very opinionated and know how to stand up for myself. I can’t wait for people to get to know the real me.” – Seema Malhotra
Hands-on mum Stacey Forsey will also be joining The Real Housewives of Cheshire. Stacey, who is married to Sports Direct chief executive David Forsey, lives in Prestbury, Cheshire with her husband and two children, daughter Grace,11 and son Zac, eight.
The stay at home mum grew up in Worsley, Salford in the bosom of her close-nit working class family. Stacey studied events at Manchester Metropolitan University, and now consults for Flannels, a company close to her heart. She hosts a charity fashion show at her home every six months to debut the latest collections. These private parties are attended by a host of designers, Cheshire WAGs and housewives, including Coleen Rooney.
The 40-year-old mum is passionate about healthy, home-cooked food following a series of illnesses which started July last year which resulted in multiple food intolerances. Stacey discovered she was intolerant to dairy, wheat, yeast eggs and cashew nuts. Now she thrives on experimenting in the kitchen, discovering new dishes and creating recipes with her family. Keen to keep fit and look good, Stacey attends ‘Barcore,’ a mixture of yoga, pilates and ballet, three times a week.
Art is Stacey’s first love, a hobby which developed when studying A-Levels at school. Stacey didn’t paint for years, putting it on hold while her children were small. Now she’s rediscovered her passion, converting her husband’s office into a studio. Here she undergoes weekly lessons with a tutor from the Art Institute and enjoys creating abstract art for friends’ homes.
“I am so excited to be on the show, I feel the time is right and I thought ‘why not’ this could be an adventure. All the housewives have very different personalities and I hope to bring something brand new to the cast. People have described me as the mild mannered extrovert – so I think I will bring some fun to the show without being too bitchy! I’m a very honest person, I say it how it is and I don’t take my lifestyle for granted. I’m having so much fun doing something I’ve never done before and my kids are loving being a part of it to. I’ve got lots of exciting projects in development which I will be revealing throughout the show.” – Stacey Forsey
