Gamble shot to public prominence in the second series of The Real Housewives of Melbourne. Since then she has become a permanent fixture on this must-see reality TV program. A great deal is known about her including her passion for art and her pet dogs. Less well-known is her support for a number of worthwhile charities. In fact, Gamble has long been a champion of the underdog and was happy to keep her association with the not for-profit sector under the radar. Like it or not, having a high public profile makes it difficult if not impossible to maintain any sort of privacy. Despite that, Gamble has chosen to lend her name to the Father Bob Maguire Foundation as a Patron.
