Nicole Sealey certainly caused the promised “chaos” in Real Housewives of Cheshire when she joined in the last series and she said there’s more drama to come.
The millionaire rail entrepreneur, who is married to former footballer Joe Sealey, told OK! Online in an exclusive chat that she only ever speaks her mind and sets the record straight when it comes to her former co-star Ester Dee.
Ester, who joined the show in series five, said she had been left hurt by comments Nicole made and accused her of being “fake” in an Instagram comment.

Sharing a clip of Nicole, 45, speaking about her dancing in lockdown, Ester, 34, responded: “I choose not to work with negative person like You. Please do not comment no more on me poor soul.
“You put women down! Wow. We should stick together. Fake fake fake #womanpower????? Be Real, love not hate.”
But Nicole said that she wasn’t the sole reason for Ester leaving and that it will be addressed on the 12th series when it returns later this year after filming has finished.
“All I’ll say is she certainly didn’t quit because of me as she said. I have filmed with Ester and that will play out even though she has left. I don’t particularly agree with some of the stuff she did on leaving but that’s her choice,” Nicole explained.
“The stuff that came out on social media. I wouldn’t have particularly taken to social media and again that’s her personal choice.
“If you’re going to preach that you’re supportive and this and that, you should really practise it. Let’s just say that!”
Nicole is all for honesty and said that she wouldn’t be changing how she acts while appearing on RHOC, which the cast have so far filmed up to episode four.
“I’m still as I was. Probably more comfortable in front of the camera. When we first saw it I had never done it before. So it can only get better!
“I just thought it was important to continue to be myself. I’ve definitely been speaking my mind,” the mum of three added.
And after clashing with fellow housewife Lauren Simon when she first joined the ITVBe reality show, Nicole says things have calmed down and they’re on good terms.
“I know we’re both a little bit bossy. I never feel particularly malicious. Lauren is just Lauren, we will say what we think I think we’ll be fine. When she came back to the show it was a first for her as well. We seem fine but who knows!”
As filming for the series recently began following the height of the coronavirus pandemic, Nicole said that it’s likely the housewives will be on a travelling ban especially after fellow star Dawn Ward contracted the illness.
“She has had quite a long holiday! When [me and Joe] went away we were only at our own place [in Majorca], only me and my husband. Pretty much indoors most of the time or at the pool.
“It was strict and quiet when we were there. People that have been travelling in France and Greece and were partying are coming back from their are developing COVID, if they’re in bigger groups.”
She added referring to the RHOC cast: “Within the group there is going to be no travelling!”
