The Real Housewives aren’t just an American phenomenon. The Real Housewives of Vancouver Season 2 premieres tonight and the ladies up North are just as wicked and wild as their U.S. counterparts!

The first Canadian spin-off of the hit Real Housewives franchise rose to Slice TV’s highest rated show after its debut in 2012, according to TheStar.com. Interestingly enough, however, quote a few members of the cast are actually Americans transplanted to Canada. Which might explain why watching an episode of The Real Housewives of Vancouver isn’t much different than watching one of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, for example.

“The show is pretty much onside with the franchise,” Real Housewives of Vancouver star Mary Zilba tells The Star. “I think some people expected Canadian women to be different than their American counterparts. But it doesn’t matter where you’re from. I think when you put strong personalities together sparks will fly.”

The Real Housewives of Vancouver Season 2 premieres on February 5 at 10 ET on Slice TV.
