Stacey Forsey is one of the most well-known faces from the Real Housewives of Cheshire.
If she wasn’t busy putting on swanky events for her cast mates, she could usually be found painting or cooking- making her the most creative cast member by a mile.
But what do we know about the reality star, and what has she been up to since her time on the show?
Stacey Forsey grew up in Salford, and earnt herself a degree in Event and Hospitality Management- which she now puts to very good use!
Before meeting her husband Dave, the star was already putting on lavish events and parties, carving out her career as a business woman.
Stacey was also perfecting her talents as an artist, and has donated some of her work to charity for a number of years now.
One of the charities to benefit from her artwork is Action for Addiction– an organisation is very close to her heart. Stacey’s brother Gary has battled heroin addiction on and off for over 25 years.
When the reality star met husband and ex- Sports Direct boss Dave Forsey, her career soon began to soar.

The couple now live in the prestigious ‘Golden Triangle’ in Cheshire in a luxury mansion in Prestbury with their two teen children: 16-year-old Grace, and 13-year-old Zac.
Hitting the big time
While the reality star had appeared in the show as a supporting character hosting parties and events, Stacey Forsey joined the Real Housewives of Cheshire as an official cast member in series 3. And she became an immediate hit with viewers!
Thanks to her role on the show, Stacey temporarily shifted her focus on being a housewife, but it was clear that the star was still brimming with creative ideas.

During her time on the programme, the star did her best to be one of the most level-headed cast members- but this didn’t stop her from having numerous run ins with Dawn Ward!
So how did Stacey Forsey manage some of the feisty moments on Real Housewives of Cheshire?
Speaking about her time filming the show, the business woman said:
“I have a little moto: it’s to trust yourself and have belief within yourself…. If you maintain this, you shouldn’t have to put too much trust in others. However, all us girls look out for each other and deep down we all support one another”.
Departure from the show
In 2018, Stacey Forsey decided to quit the Real Housewives of Cheshire to focus on her lifestyle career– and we can’t say it was a big surprise.
The star had been itching to try out some business ideas after releasing her own cookery book, and had started to immerse herself in new creative projects.
Speaking to the Mail Online, the reality star said:
“Being the creative adventurous person that I am, wanted to make my children proud and myself proud and succeed in something using my creative talent.
“Now three years later I think it is time for change again. I have evolved as a person. My business and the book became a huge project so something had to give – and I felt it I had to be the show.”

So what has Stacey been up to since she left the show?
Well, it seems like the star never stops!
Not content with releasing her cookery book and building her Youtube channel, Stacey also happens to run a “healing retreat” which focuses on health and wellness. Each retreat is based at a luxury European hotel- so they come with a hefty price tag.
Fans are also able to get their hands on Stacey’s t-shirts, prints and candles in her boujee online shop, which focuses on one-off seasonal pieces.
