Pettifleur Berenger is a famous reality television star, real estate developer and a businesswoman.

Early days

She was born in Colombo, Sri Lanka, on December 20, 1964.

Sri Lanka was known as Ceylon until 1972.

Her family moved to Australia when she was a teenager because of her parents jobs.

Her sister Gillian is also a very known TV personality.

She has got Swiss-Dutch on her paternal side and Portuguese-Sinhalese (Sri Lankan) roots on her maternal side.

Career development

She runs a very succesfull property business where she develops and sells high-end properties and is great at her job.

She is a star of a reality show „Real Housewives of Melbourne“, , which she joined in season two following the departure of Andrea Moss.

She is the first non-white housewife in this reality show, although nobody mentioned that fact.

She wrote a book „Switch The Bitch“: My Formula to Being the Champion of Your Life, Not the Victim, a self help book for women.

She is still in a legal battle over this book’s title.

Omarosa Manigualt released her own book titled „The Bitch Switch“ in 2008. and she is claiming that Berenger stole her title and demands  a financial payout.

This situation  gave Berenger’s book free advertising  so her book became known everywhere and sold fast.

Personal life

She was married twice and has three sons she adores.

The oldest one, Nathan Willis Berenger, can oftenly be found in pictures on her Instagram and Facebook.
She is in a relationship with a businessman Frank Palazzo and they invested together in a stable of horses for racing.

They are together for nine years and they keep their private life to themselves.

The couple live in the Westin, in an apartment in the heart of the city of Melbourne.

They are good in business together so when she set up a group of apartments in Melbourne’s Malvern East in 2014., nobody was surprised to find out that the land the properties sit on was purchased  by Frank’s company, BY FJP Pty Ltd, in 2008.

Philantropic work

She supports charities including Kids Under Cover, which builds shelters for kids in the streets who are not still 18.

Kids Under Cover is a non profit  organisation dedicated to preventing youth homelessness in Melbourne and the region.
She is involved with all Alzheimer’s charities, explaining that the reason for that is only for her to know.

She is an Ambassador for Bullyzero : an organisation which is trying to  establish a zero-tolerance culture of bullying and is working  to empower, educate and prevent all forms of bullying on a National scale.

Another charity in which she is involved is The Dandelion Foundation.

She is donating money to Monash Children’s Hospital.
