Who Is Reiko Mackenzie, The Real Housewives Of Vancouver’s Resident Dare-Devil?
Better bust out your Loubies and pop open a vat of maple syrup, because The Real Housewives of Vancouver are taking over Canada! We're ecstatic about the newest installment of our favorite franchise and its fabulous reality starlets –– especially Reiko Mackenzie.
This Japanese-Canadian glamazon lives life in the fast lane (literally!) and is sure to bring some serious drama. Not only is Reiko an "adrenaline junkie" who practices mixed martial arts (that's right, girlfriend owns a sword) –– she's a fanatic car collector with a collection of luxury wheels worth over one million big ones! "Some people collect art, coins, and husbands," Reiko tells ET Canada. "I collect cars and clothes."
When Reiko isn't speeding down the race track in a brand new Ferrari, she's busy raising her adorable daughters with her venture capitalist hubby, Sun New Lal (aka Sun MacKenzie). Sounds pretty normal right? Wrong. Reiko's husband was a murder suspect in one of Vancouver's most notorious mob crimes. Sun was a prime suspect when Jim and Ron Dosanjh were killed in a "turf war" between rival drug gangs. Of course, he was acquitted, but why was he even accused in the first place? Yikes.
Reiko might be a housewife, but she's also a bona fide genius. She earned her degree from University of British Columbia and had plans to become a lawyer (might come in handy if Sun ever gets accused of murder again), but she put her career on hold after the arrival of her first kiddo. Nowadays, Reiko and her family (including her mom!) live in a house worth $3.5 million and enjoy the finer things in life –– like "the sound of a new Ferrari."
Sigh, and we thought the sound of a used Volvo was pure gold.
