An Entrepreneur and former Miss Australia, Nicole Gazal O'Neil is a cast member of The Real Housewives of Sydney.
Born in Dubai and raised in Sydney by her Lebanese and Swedish parents, Nicole is a true global citizen. Having spent the last eight years living in London, Nicole returned home to Australia in June 2017. A devoted wife and mother, Nicole wanted her two daughters Nawal and Neve to have the same Australian upbringing she did, and to attend high school in Sydney.
Fluent in four languages (English, Swedish, French, and Arabic), Nicole is a combination of brains and beauty. In 1998 she completed a Bachelor of Commerce degree on scholarship from Bond University; and in 2002 she was crowned Miss Australia. Nicole went on to place 5th in the Miss World international competition.
That same year she also launched Pret-a-Party, her event and production company. Nicole’s mission with her company was “to create unforgettable events that go above and beyond our clients’ expectations”, and to “celebrate life’s moments”. The company, a presence in both Sydney and London, has been creating extraordinary events, and magnificent results for clients ever since.
With a strong belief in giving back to the community, Nicole dedicates much of her time to philanthropic causes. In 2016, her Food Truck Fund event raised $120, 000 for Chalie Teo's Cure Brain Cancer Foundation. Nicole is also working with the Cancer Council and the anti bullying initiative, YOU CAN SIT WITH ME.
Engaging, entertaining, aspirational, and driven... Nicole certainly lives up to her Housewives tagline, "beauty queens can more than handle drama queens". Indeed they can.
