The RHOBH are now filming… DrunkOtis was spotted out with the newest cast member, Christine Alexandra Chiu.
Christine Chiu was on the original list of potential BH Housewives back in 2010… she finally made it!!
This is the original list of BH women wanting to be on the original cast of the RHOBH:
1. not caucasian (out of running – name will not be revealed) **This is CHRISTINE CHIU
2. has lots of brothers (cast!! cant mention named – per Bravo!) *This was ADRIANNE!
3. an L.A. native (out of running – name will not be revealed)
4. flies (out of running – name will not be revealed)
5. something O (out of running – name will not be revealed)
6. rhymes with Yale (out of running – name will not be revealed)
7. Brentwood dweller (out of running – name will not be revealed)
8. Has 3 names! (cast!! cant mention named – per Bravo!) **This was Taylor Ford Armstrong!!
In 2010, Bravo was still deliberating over two groups of five ladies in Beverly Hills that had been selected over the summer. One Housewife in the running is a woman of Chinese descent who has beautiful clothes and is a socialite, fashionista, and philanthropist in BH – she is married to a plastic surgeon also of Chinese descent. NOTE: This was Christine Chiu.
Bravo’s Real Housewives of Orange County was cast in much the same process – asking casting directors to develop two story-lines around two different casts – and then letting Bravo executives and producers pick between the two.
Chewy is the wife of BH plastic surgeon, Dr. Gabriel Chiu.
Chewy provides a personal touch to every one of her husband’s patients, according to LAConfidential:
And Chiu’s wife, Christine, sends each patient home with a recovery bag complete with chicken noodle soup, vitamins, fresh juices, magazines, music, and movies. This attention to detail has made Chiu as admired for his bedside manner as he is for his sculptural skill.
Christine had a birthday par-tay in 2012…
A day in the life of Dr. Chiu includes his wife, Christine...
6:45AM My Ferrari roars to life to take me to work.
7 AM I scrub into surgery. On today’s menu: a nose, two pairs of breasts and highdefinition abdominal liposuction. No case is ever the same, and I love challenges. Noon I have a quick lunch with the wife and publicists at Bouchon to discuss upcoming engagements and press opportunities.
1 PM I’m in the office having a power meeting with the staff to instruct on the new Stem Cell Banking program. I sneak in a quick phone interview with HLN about new trends in male plastic surgery.
2 PM I see a couple of follow-up patients, and they love their newly sculpted bodies and younger faces. Their husbands high-five me.
3 PM I perform a non-surgical facelift, using Perlane to volumize the cheeks, Juvederm to fill in the nasolabial folds, and Dysport to lift the brows. In 30 minutes, I’ve removed ten years off of my patient’s face. Two more Botox appointments follow this.
4 PM Yves Saint Laurent’s tailor stops by to fit me for a newly purchased black single- breasted suit with peaked lapels. Tom Ford drops off a bespoke tux for an upcoming charity gala.
5 PM Christine and I walk across the street to the Beverly Wilshire Hotel to attend the Montblanc Press Lounge and pre- Oscars beauty events.
6 PM I race home to get dressed for the night’s events. I change out of my comfortable microfiber scrubs and sneakers and into a Kiton black Houndstooth suit and a pair of black Saint Laurent dress shoes. My watch of the evening is a limited-edition platinum IWC F.A. Jones skeleton watch (No. 38 of 50). I slip on some custom David Yurman diamond cufflinks and a matching diamond band. With just a spray of Chanel Blue, I am ready to go.
7 PM Christine (in a Dolce&Gabbana dress and Russian lynx coat) and I mingle with friends at the QVC party at the Four Seasons, before heading over to the Emerson Theater where the OK! magazine pre-Oscars party is held. Red carpet, celebs, champagne…
9 PM The last stop of the evening is a dinner meeting with visiting VPs of Skin- Ceuticals at Spago in Beverly Hills. I bump into my designer friend Lloyd Klein, who happens to be celebrating his birthday with Natalie Cole and AnnaLynne McCord. Wolfgang Puck stops by to chat, while Barbara Lazaroff charms our guests.
11PM: I say a nightly prayer and then it’s lights out!
