It didn’t take long for Canada to jump on Bravo’s Real Housewives bandwagon and launch their own branch-off franchise with The Real Housewives of Vancouver. The series was aired on Slice and broke the network’s record as the highest-rated premiere with 1.2 million viewers. But in spite of its initial success, the series only made it through 2 seasons before it was canned and the ladies lost their “celebrity” status. This list takes a look at what they’ve been up to since their 25-episode adventure in stardom where they aired their dirty laundry for all of Canada to enjoy.
8. Jody Claman
Life since the completion of the RHOV has not been easy on Jody Claman. Her daughter, Mia Deakin, who appeared alongside her mother in many of the show’s episodes, was wounded in a drive-by shooting at a Vancouver gas station in June 2014. Police speculated that the shooting may have been targeted, as Mia’s partner, Jeffrey Chang, was a rumored gangster and the man she was with during the shooting had an outstanding warrant. Deakin and Chang gave birth to a son in April 2015, making Jody a grandma, but tragedy struck again and Chang passed away in July at the age of 28. Jody also underwent a lengthy divorce and in January 2015, she was ordered to surrender $600,000 to her ex-husband. Claman begged for an extension of time stating, “All my properties have been mortgaged and I have bad credit.” Esh! And to make matters worse, Jody’s ex also wants his legal fees covered—which could cost Jody an additional $300,000! Might it be some bad karma for being such a mean girl?
