Wikipedia Biography / Profile Background

Introduction :

  • Janet Roach is an Australian property developer, entrepreneur, philanthropist and reality television star.
  • She is most commonly known for her role as one of the first cast members of the Real Housewives of Melbourne (RHOM), but was a self-made millionaire long before the show aired.

  • Janet was born in the town of Gympie, Queensland on August 16, 1958.

  • Roach is now married to her current partner, Sam Gance. In October 2021, the couple paid $43 million for a Toorak mansion, breaking the high auction price record in the city of Melbourne. The mansion sits on a massive 3330sq m block and consists of 7 living rooms, 3 kitchens, a teppanyaki grill, and an on-site wellness center!
