The series answers the question, "can exes be friends? It is focused on the dating life of Jo De La Rosa, a former cast member on The Real Housewives of Orange County.Jo enlists the help of her ex-fiance Slade Smiley plus her best friends Myia Ingoldsby and Katy Metz.We travel from Birkenhead, where we have turkey for Christmas lunch, to Kaikohe, where we have hangi for dinner.My in-laws are patiently kind about my desire to avoid sleeping on the floor "marae style" when we visit.But while my skin colour might be unusual in some parts of my husband's Far North home-town, where almost everyone works at the meatworks or the jail, those occasions are a reminder to me that it is a common occurrence for him.He is still the odd one out on most of the boards he serves on.After all of the dates, Jo chooses one of the guys to stay in Slade's house and go on a second date with her, while the others are told, "I think we should just be friends", and they have to leave the house immediately.Episode 1 starts out with the four guys' being brought to the house and introduced to Slade after the news that their brief residence is, in fact, his house.
Just looking to make friends (preferably girl mates) who are like minded, like the out doors, trying different things, travelling, cooking etc. Just need someone to go to dinners, movies, walks, catch a drink at the bar... This is a hard limit for me at the moment as I have come out of a long term relationship and am nowhere near ready to get involved with anyone. I hope to do lots of exploring this summer by boat I have recently moved to Auckland and I am looking to meet new people to hang out with / explore new home with. I enjoy music and always keen to get out and about.
But these novelties feel more like the foibles of newly mingling families than any real racial divide.
Of course, there have been many occasions when I have been the only non-Maori at family parties and dinners.
Three contestants are invited into Slade's house, every week to live with him and compete for Jo's heart.
Every day, one of Jo's friends delivers to her house a red and white polka dot box containing a note and a clue hinting at the day's events.
