#LadiesofLondon Returns Tonight — Watch Sneak Peek!

Posted on Sep 7 2015 - 9:28am by Dani-K

Ladies of London

Are you ready for another British Invasion – Season 2? The “Ladies of London” are back to show us a bloody good time as we live vicariously inside England’s high society. Two new ladies have joined the cast and two have left–so how about a quick refresher course on everyone.

Returning Ladies

Annabelle Nielson – British

Born into an aristocratic family, Annabelle is a socialite and author of children’s books. Last season she was indifferent to the American cast members, finding them rude and boring. Annabelle was the muse and best friend of the late designer, Alexander McQueen, who committed suicide in 2010. At the end of season one, Annabelle was thrown from her horse during high speeds, breaking her hip. Hopefully this season  will be a lot more fun for Annabelle.

Caroline Stanbury – British

There are two Caroline’s this season, but make no mistake, this Caroline is number one, Queen Bee. A self-described pit bull of a business owner, she isn’t afraid to say what’s on her mind, no matter how scathing. Caroline is always trying to discover the next hottest trends for her wealthy, worldwide clients. She is married to Cem and live outside of London with their three children.

Juliet Angus – American

The pushy, loud, name-dropping American from Chicago, Juliet, once ran with Hollywood A-listers. Now that she lives in London with her husband, Gregor, Juliet is on the outside, trying to find her way in. She can also be counted on for lots of drama. Juliet is a personal stylist, mom to two adorable children, and runs a lifestyle website selling the clothes you’d find in her closet.

Marissa Hermer – Dual Citizenship

The girl-next-door from Newport, Ca, Marissa is straight-up sweet, even though Caroline S has referred to her as, “Stepford.” Marissa now has another baby, so we’ll see if she’s as easy-going as last season. Her husband, Matt Hermer and family, own most of the swanky pubs and luxurious restaurants in town. Marissa, who is accomplished in her own right, started a new venture bringing American culture to England. Can you guess what it is? Custom built hot dogs at Top Dogs in London’s Soho. Hot diggity dog.

Julie Montagu – American

Last season, Lady Hinchingbrooke, who is married to Luke Montagu, heir of the Earl of Sandwich, was on “friend” status, but received a title upgrade this season and to “Lady” for the second time in her life. Go America! Born and raised in Sugar Grove, Illinois, Julie was introduced to her future husband, Viscount Hitchingbrooke, who is in line to the throne, by mutual friends. Julie just released her first cookbook, Superfoods. She and the Viscount have four children.

New Ladies

Caroline Fleming – Danish

New to #ladiesoflondon but not to reality television, the second Caroline is no shrinking violet. She was host of “The Baroness Moves In” and “Denmark’s Next Top Model.” She’s a real Baroness, but here’s the thing with the two Caroline’s – they totally look alike. The best I can offer to tell these ladies apart for now is the new Caroline has long blonde hair and THE returning Caroline has shorter blonde hair. God save the Queen if they both wear an updo. Caroline is a business owner, author, mother, and was married to the nephew of James Bond creator, Ian Fleming.

Sophie Stanbury – British

I’m sure by her last name, you can tell how Sophie was referred to the show. Sister-in-law to Caroline Stanbury, Sophie’s bio says she was sent to school at a “traditional convent” for her education. After that, Sophie worked for “one of the world’s largest hedge funds” before changing directions to work at the Member’s Club. Caroline introduced Sophie to her brother, Alex, and they  married. Today Sophie juggles her design company, mothering, and partying. Sounds like she’ll fit in just fine.

As for the two ladies who left, Noelle Reno and Caprice Bourret, they are no longer part of the show, most likely, for very different reasons. Noelle is enduring the most difficult time of her life after her fiancé, Scot Young, jumped from a third floor window last year, ending his life. As for Caprice, she had two babies, one month apart, so she’s busy. Plus, I think she was surprised she wasn’t loved by the public. Tune in Monday night’s on Bravo at 10:00/9:00pm or read the (hopefully knee-slapping) recaps here.

So mark it on your calendars: Season 2 kicks off TONIGHT, September 7th at 10|9c.

Check out an exclusive sneak peek of season 2 below. It’s Thanksgiving, but Americans Juliet Angus and Marissa Hermer aren’t exactly coming together.

Ladies of London premieres Sept. 7 at 10 p.m. ET on Bravo.

  • Jennymckitty

    I can’t wait. Love this show.

    • Livie1

      Jenny I’ll be a first time viewer but decided to watch when so many posters here like yourself said they really liked this show!

      • Sophia Z.

        You’ll love it, Livie. Stay awake! lol

        • Livie1

          I sure am gonna try Sophia!!

          (farm/hillbilly roots dictate I get up with the chickens and go to bed with the chickens – hard to break that habit but I will TRY! )

          • Sophia Z.

            LMAO!!! Maybe the chickens will excuse you for just one day?!?!

          • Livie1

            Sophia, I’ll speak to them and maybe even threaten with an upcoming chicken dinner if they do not cooperate and let me watch tonight’s episode!!

            LOL, just kidding.

            I don’t have chickens, not allowed here. (Otherwise I probably would!) But once a farmer always a farmer so my internal clock is set for sun rise and sun down.

          • Sophia Z.

            You pulled my (chicken) leg! Good one, Livie. I’m kind of like you except I like to sleep late in the mornings. Early to bed though.

            When my parrot gets in trouble I say to him … “parrot pot pie!” and he starts saying it. He knows that it’s time for him to quieten down.

          • Livie1

            haha!! I love that: Parrot Pot Pie!!! Birds are sooo smart I bet he does know what you mean – lol.

          • Sophia Z.

            He does. He’s very smart. he speaks over 600 words. If I don’t go to bed by 10:00 he tells me to shut up and go to bed.

          • Livie1

            haha!! I love that parrot of yours!!!! Did you teach him or did he come fully educated??

          • Sophia Z.

            I got him when he was 6 months old. I taught him everything – even cursing like a sailor. I have had him for 34 years. He’s annoying as all get out but he’s a lot of fun too. They say parrots are as intelligent as a 3 year old human child. The problem is they never grow up. He’s great fun at parties as he is requested at every place I visit. He’s an African Grey which are the smartest and best speakers of all the parrot kingdom.

  • Livie1

    Dani K, thanks for the cheat sheet on the cast of characters! Very helpful for me as someone who is planning to watch this show for first time.

    I did check my local listings and it doesn’t come on until 10 PM here…hopefully I won’t drift off 10 minutes BEFORE it begins – lol!!

    • Sophia Z.

      LOL, If these ladies are anything like some in the previous group then good luck getting them to even come to the photoshoot. They are, after all a very (self) important group of women and I love to watch them.

      • Livie1

        OK, on closer inspection I see that group photo is photoshopped so there was no photo shoot then, just individual pics spliced together.

        Oh I love self-important people, they’re such great fodder for comedy and snark – yahroo!!!!!!! Now that gives me even more incentive to stay awake til 10 tonight – lol.

        • twifan2

          There really isn’t a ‘group’ shot of them like they had on season 1. 🙁
          That pic on top is Photoshopped with last season’s.

    • MidwestMiddie

      Live, hopefully we, all, get to enjoy the show. If Bravo keeps a “hands off” approach
      we’ll all be lucky. Bravo has ruined more shows than bettered them.

      • Sophia Z.

        Hi MM, I hope so too. Up to now it hasn’t really happened as I don’t think any of these ladies take orders from anyone but who knows, Bravo ruined all of their shows up to now. Have you watched the previous two years of the show?

        • MidwestMiddie

          Hi Sophia, Yes, I’ve watched from the beginning of this show and
          have a few favorites from last year, Season One. Tonight begins
          Season Two, I wonder if my old favorites will remain so? lol
          Do you have favorites?

          • Sophia Z.

            I thought it was on for two years? Am I that confused? Yes my favorite was Caprice. What a woman, insisting her baby shower having a change of venue. She was pretty and snarky and handled Annabelle well by getting over Annabelle’s oh so blah personality smoothly.

          • MidwestMiddie

            I think Bravo Andy hinted about the show a year before we ever
            got to see it which could be why you think it’s been on for 2 years.
            Caprice was an interesting character and I would love to know how she
            is getting on with her toddlers. One of my favorites was snotty
            Annabelle. I loved her becoming the jockey and racing until she
            had her accident. She broke her back!!! Ugh!! From what I’ve read,
            she is plenty ticked off that Caroline Stanbury didn’t keep in touch during her long recovery. The one who did is Lady Hinchingbrooke and
            they’ve become close friends.

          • Sophia Z.

            I never listen to Andy anymore. He’s lost all credibility with me. So I don’t know why I thought the show went on for two seasons (other than I’m getting old, lol).
            There is kind of a sweetness about Annabelle but she doesn’t let it out enough. She’s a tough girl and you would never know. And I agree, I hope we get an update on all of the characters that are not coming back.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Two years ago I was still watching WWHL 2 nights a week……no more. Back then was when I recall him at first hinting about a London
            show and then eventually saying it would happen in the future.
            I agree with you – Andy lacks integrity and credibility.His show today
            is a joke and nothing more than a ego booster for himself.

          • Sophia Z.

            I agree, MM. I get so bored watching his show because it is about him being stupid on himself. His ego meter is off the roof.
            Last year I sent in a request to Bravo to do a housewives show in Monaco. I want to see the big money and think it would be a fun show with all of the sights and yachts.

          • MidwestMiddie

            I love your idea but doubt Bravo could handle it. It sounds
            like a show for the BBC. : )

          • Sophia Z.

            Me thinks you are right about that, MM. It would be a fun show though.
            I missed Caprice on LOL tonight. It didn’t seem the same without her.

          • MidwestMiddie

            I’m surprised Caprice isn’t even a “friend” of the series. I can understand her not having the time for a full commitment.

          • Sophia Z.

            Maybe she realized how many people did NOT like her and wanted to be a fan favorite.

          • MidwestMiddie

            LOL
            Her snobbery was awful which made her good for the show
            but terrible for trying to become a Fan Favorite.

          • Sophia Z.

            Hi MM! I agree but the same could be said of Caroline as she is equally snooty; American’s seem to be her muse.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Absolutely – 100% – Spot On!!!!

      • Livie1

        Boy, no kidding Midwest about the “touch” of Bravo 🙁

    • Dani-K

      My pleasure Livie! I’m looking toward to LoL too! Monday’s will be a late night for me.

  • Sophia Z.

    Yeehooo! I can’t wait. Thank you Dani for the line up on who’s who. I’m going to miss Caprice. She was a top of the line shizz stirrer and all around fun. It’s nice to see in the preview that Annabelle seems to come out of her “I’m so bored with everything” mode and have some personality this year?!? Frankly, I’m surprised to see these women so trashed out going to the super market. I have my British accent down and am so ready to watch. This is my favorite show that Bravo has going.
    OMG that dress that Juliet is wearing. WTheck is she thinking?

    • ohjeez

      Juliet is the worst dresser ever….and of course she is in fashion…i can’t believe she was allowed to wear that hideous outfit that doesn’t even match the other ladies at all and basically throws the whole pic off….

      • Livie1

        Definitely hideous. Good word!! From the comments I’m guessing she’s the dark haired, ugly outfit person pictured above.

        • ohjeez

          yes and wait until you hear her annoying voice…she has a rat face too…

          • Livie1

            LOL, you paint a disturbing picture there ohjeez!!!! LMAO!!! Now I really can’t wait to watch this!

            TY for confirming she was the one in the goofy get-up 🙂

          • ohjeez

            lololooo….she really does disturb me…Happy Holiday Livie!

          • Sophia Z.

            She is odd but after the incident with the cut off’s, I found myself more on her side. Especially with Annabelle.

          • Livie1

            Ohjeez, thank you! Same to you, Happy Holiday 🙂

      • Sophia Z.

        I agree. But you know Juliet, if it is going to be tacky, she’s there. Remember the cut-off’s on July 4 and how upset everyone was over that.

        • ohjeez

          paired with her top that looked like a straight jacket….

          • Sophia Z.

            I did feel uncomfortable watching her in that outfit. I didn’t mind the shorts but the blouse was just wrong.

    • Livie1

      Sophia is Juliet the one in the garden trellis ensemble?

      That thing is hideous and I say that with a mixture of both horror and a sneer!

      • Livie1

        It’s like Swiss Miss meets the Jolly Green Giant!

        • Sophia Z.

          Hahahaha! Yes that is Juliet in the garden trellis ensemble. Go read her bio on top of it. That’s just scary, Livie. London is laughing.

  • foxybrunette

    Thanks for explaining the cast of characters, I’m sure I’ll need to refer to it as I watch the show for the first time, too. I watched a few episodes of last season and quickly got confused :D. I wasn’t a fan of Caprice from the little I saw so I’m glad she’s gone. Looking forward to what seems to be a popular show, I hope to enjoy it before Bravo gets it’s mitts fully on it and ruins it as per their usual formula.

  • twifan2

    Yeah! Something good to watch on Bravo. 🙂
    Missed these ladies! 😀

    • Livie1

      Twi, you all have me really excited to watch this! It will be fun to Tuesday Morning quarterback here too!

      • twifan2

        It’s really one of Bravo’s best-imo.
        LOVE seeing the scenery, places, people! 🙂

        • MidwestMiddie

          Spot On, twi
          I’ve got my kettle and Tetley tea ready, then again, I’ve
          always got both on or at the ready. lol
          This should be fun.

          • twifan2

            I just got some Rose tea. :/
            Maybe I’ll have some England’s Gold instead. 🙂

          • MidwestMiddie

            I’m not familiar with England’s Gold, however I love Rose Tea
            and enjoy pots of it whenever I’m in Canada.

          • twifan2

            I had some of Downton Abbey English Rose tea before. But I found this loose tea in shop, figured I’d give it a try. 🙂

  • ohjeez

    I am very very excited for this new season it looks great!!

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    This show is so awesome! Other than Below Deck, this is one of the best new shows Bravo has put on in the last couple of years.

    • Livie1

      Oh goody, I can’t wait! I saw Below Deck the first season, most of it and I liked it too. Interesting show and I liked the captain. He pretty much shut down the diva behaviors (well as much as anyone can do that with people on reality series.)

      • Hi Livie. You will love it! I can’t wait to read Dani-K’s recaps.

        • imogeneehale

        This show is 10 kinds of awesome! Wait until you see some of the castles these women live in.

        • Sophia Z.

          And there is even a Lord Sandwich. How can you go wrong with that name?

  • ohjeez

    also slight correction 😉 if by “A listers” you mean Lindsay lohan and janice dickenson then yes Juliet has hung out with a listers lol…..saying you “shared a table” at a nightclub with Leo lolololoooo half of LA could say that esp the club hoes….

    • Livie1

      yeah then if that’s her claim to fame, it’s one she might not want to claim – lol!

      • ohjeez

        i was like Guuurrll, shut the hell up…

  • Livie1

    I just watched the video…I don’t know who is who but I already am annoyed with the American gal that wants to make everyone have Thanksgiving in a restaurant dining room along with 30 friends of HERS. What??? A control freak? Not on Bravo???? 😉

    Libby’s pumpkin? YES!! Best recipe ever on back of can!!

    • twifan2

      Add Bourbon to it & OMG! 🙂

      • Livie1

        OK, now that’s one I have not heard of!! Libby’s recipe calls for evaporated milk normally so just substitute some of the milk with bourbon Twi? Please spill the tea on this most important subject asap!!! TY 🙂

        • twifan2

          Just make the pumpkin pie like you normally do. BUT add about 3 1/2 tablespoons bourbon. MORE if you want, but the filling may be watery. 🙂

          • Livie1

            Thanks Twi! I might try that sometime!! I wonder if you could flavor the whipped cream with bourbon too??? The possibilities!

          • twifan2

            I usually make a caramel, bourbon sauce for some of the pies & other goodies.
            You probably could flavor the whip cream with it too. 🙂

    • twifan2

      I can’t see the video-I’m in the ‘wrong’ area. 🙁
      But I can imagine what it contains. :/

    • MidwestMiddie

      Livie, the Thanksgiving Dinner Hostess is Marissa. She became a British Citizen last season but still has her American Citizenship as well.

      • Livie1

        Thanks Midwest! I read a bit of her bio and she sounds nice according to the bio.

        I just thought that was weird to basically demand the other ladies have Thanksgiving in a restaurant. Ooooh, a private dining room? So what!! That ain’t home!! Have Christmas dinner in the restaurant instead. Oh well like most of these promos, the editing probably has made it sound like something it really isn’t.

        • MidwestMiddie

          Juliet, the Horribly Dressed American “Stylist,” was the one who
          was insisting upon the dinner being in a house. Hmmm
          She didn’t offer to have Thanksgiving at her house did she? LOL
          Marisa’s husband owns the restaurant with the private dinning room.
          Also, if she held the dinner there for 5 years, chances are the room
          is beautifully decorated and table set to look like the inside of a family home……minus folding tables and chairs. : )

          • Livie1

            Thanks for the Tea MM. Since all these women are complete strangers to me I have no backstory/context as to what they are actually saying to each other – lol!! I just took at face value and for me, if I was an expat in London wanting to celebrate Thanksgiving, it would not be in someone’s restaurant. Their country manor, heck yes, I’ll be there with my homemade Libby’s pumpkin pie. First one to arrive!! 🙂 This is gonna be fun, now I can’t wait to watch and then check in tomorrow to hear what you all have to say!

          • MidwestMiddie

            I haven’t checked but is Bravo running last year’s Season One
            today….right now? Or can you see it on your computer using
            Bravo’s videos? You might catch one or two episodes before
            tonight’s show.

          • Livie1

            I tried that before MM and bravo has some weird app thing that you must download in order to watch old episodes…in other words so complicated it wasn’t work my time or energy to pursue. I did flip on bravo earlier and they were showing the OC repeat of after Vicki’s mom’s funeral. Oh joy. So turned off and haven’t looked since.

            Getting ready to go grill brats!! Hope you had a nice Labor Day there MM!!

        • Elizabeth Fisher

          I didn’t think it was that odd. Thanksgiving is an American (and Canadian) holiday so it would kind of make sense to have it at a restaurant instead of having Brits cook food that they don’t really understand. The Brits don’t really get our traditions, just as we don’t “get” a lot of theirs.

          • Livie1

            Elizabeth, just me, I like home for Thanksgiving 🙂 I can see I’m in the minority however!! I did not realize Thanksgiving was a Canadian holiday too – I always learn something here!

  • Sophia Z.

    LOL Ladies of London has a wikipedia page about last season in case anyone wants to get caught up on what happened. Also some interviews and episodes on YouTube. But make sure to come back to AAtT to post any tea you may have.

  • itsjustme

    I’m looking forward to watching. I loved the first season. I for one WON’T miss either Caprice or Noel. I just couldn’t handle how Caprice was towards her fellow americans. To me she always appeared to think she was better than they were and they should bow down to her. I realize some of the brits were the same way, but I personally wrote it off as the difference between brits and Americans.
    Noel- what can I say. She was the epitome of a social climber. I do feel badly for her with how Scott died, but I simply could NOT handle her fake accent and jealousy of the others who had a (for lack of a better word) higher social standing than she did. She appeared to always be on the outside looking in and simply could NOT accept her position in London high society.

    • Dani-K

      Agree 100%. Last year Noelle was so obvious about her gold-digging ways. I am sorry about her tragedy with Scot and commend her for turning down the money to be on the show. If it was her choice and not Bravo. I was surprised Caprice didn’t sign on for season 2, though. She was a self-admiitted hustler. I guess she didn’t like the heat in the kitchen.

  • Terri L. Austin

    My heart is racing like Sea Biscuit, I’m so excited about Ladies of London!

  • twifan2

    Dang! There were a few shows that didn’t sir last nite. Wonder why?

    • Because of the holiday. It’s common.

      • twifan2

        Oh that’s right. Forgot it’s a holiday back there.

        • Are you still on the French Riviera?

          • twifan2

            Not even close. 😀

          • Oh rats! I live through you vicariously.

          • twifan2

            Saving that for Oct. 🙂

  • Hey y’all! Happy Labor Day weekend.

    Ladies of London is going to be such a warm addition to my fall TV line up. I loved season 1 and have high expectations for season 2. Can’t wait.

    • Livie1

      Yay, can’t wait! I will pinch myself if necessary to stay awake for the 10Pm showing. Hopefully it will be so good I won’t have to resort to that 🙂

      Happy Labor Day to you also Seuss!!

      • Sophia Z.

        Did you watch? What do you think? Or did you fall asleep?

        • Livie1

          Sophia, it’s only 8:30 here – lol. I still have a while to go before the show!

          • Sophia Z.

            hahahahaha! What can we do to keep you awake? Did you watch the OG of the OC or are you still watching?

          • Livie1

            I just watched Family Tree, Christopher Guest series, that was fun! Now I’m going to rewatch Outlander where Jamie and Claire get hitched…I’m trying to keep my brain interested until the big LoL debut!

            Did you already see in your area? If so, what did you think? Good season premiere?

          • Livie1

            Also here on Bravo tonight is the OC’s I guess new episode. On at 9. I can’t bear to watch any further talk about cancer. For me that storyline is soul-crushing, I’m done with the OC until next season. So instead, tonight after the cookout, I’ve been watching my BBC stuff and then the Outlander series until Ladies of London comes on at 10.

            Good thing you didn’t watch then. I don’t blame you. It’s hard to watch. xox in comfort for you.

            Yes I watched. It was a good cat fight to start the season. Perfect and had royalty on the show. Can’t get better than that!

      • The season 2 opener was awesome, Livie. Did you stay up?
