Tommy Little dresses in drag as Real Housewives of Melbourne star Gina Liano

Tommy Little got the surprise of his life while dressed in drag as former Real Housewives of Melbourne star Gina Liano.

This was the second time the radio personality dressed up as Gina – complete with OTT wig, fake lashes and sequins galore. However, this time around, the queen herself dropped into the Carrie and Tommy studio to say hello.

While he was quoting some iconic lines Gina said on RHOM with his co-host, Carrie Bickmore, the star emerged much to Tommy’s shock.

“You look more like me than I do!” she said as she entered the Melbourne studio. “Are you seriously doing me right now?”

Carrie explained that Tommy “loves doing you. He does it as often as he can.”

Gina – who appeared on four of five seasons of RHOM – continued to praise Tommy for the resemblance, but he said no one can ever compare to the queen.

“I look like you on a budget. I really look like the knock off version,” he said.

Real Gina and fake Gina then continued to recite lines from the show.

“Can I give you a bit of you and you can judge?” Tommy asked, before adding: “I think you’re fantastic and I think you’re very funny, but strap in for this.”

Lines such as “You’re an insignificant arse hair” and “Well, don’t look, darling” are revisited with Gina revealing the latter is the one most fans say to her when they see her out and about.

Fans will recall the line was uttered during one explosive dinner party when Gina and castmate Andrea Moss went head-to-head.

“You are crude, you are vulgar, you are confrontational and aggressive,” Andrea told her. “I don’t particularly want to talk to you. I, actually, even get offended just looking at you now.”

This was when Gina quipped: “Well, don’t look darling.”

And Gina’s taglines in the opening credits are worth a mention too. Among them are: “I deal in fact not friction”, “I’ll give you my opinion, but you’d better be ready to hear it” and “I stand by what I say, but not how you interpret it.”

During the stroll down memory lane, Gina – who is a barrister in real life – was filmed swearing in many episodes even if she rarely swore in real life.

“It was like 16 weeks of filming and there were 12 episodes, and you film for four days,” she recalled.

“Maybe once a week I would swear and they’d capture that, so there’s a swear word every episode. My mother said, ‘Why are you swearing so much? You don’t normally swear that much.’”

RHOM aired for five season from 2014 to 2021, with Gina leaving in 2018 after the fourth season finished airing.

In an interview with Stellar months ago, she said four seasons of dinner party catfights became “too much”.

“It’s very soul destroying,” she told the magazine in July. “I’ve had a lot of conversations with Lydia [Schiavello, her co-star] about feeling quite traumatised at the end of it all because you’re constantly in trouble. You’re in constant conflict.”

“And someone’s always trying to catch you out. It feels like being a kid at school and waiting for the principal to call you into their office. You have that anxious, ‘What did I do wrong?’, shamed, humiliated and embarrassed feeling.”
