Leilani Dowding and Sean Borg catch up for lunch in Los Angeles

It’s been almost a year since they have seen each other, but TV star Leilani Dowding and entertainment personality Sean Borg made the most of their time together in LA earlier this week by getting into the Christmas cheer.

The former Miss Great Britain has had a busy year; she recently finished filming the hit ITVBe reality soap — ‘Real Housewives of Cheshire,’ that had a fiery season finale — last month.

The series saw more infighting between its characters this year than ever before, especially with Leilani being targeted by ‘RHOC’ bully — Dawn Ward — who attacked the petite brunette at every given opportunity whilst cameras were rolling.

However, life in Los Angeles must seem like a world away from all the drama Leilani endured while filming show, as she was all smiles when the paparazzi photographers spotted her walking in LA with Borg.

It was reported recently that the travel and lifestyle expert — Borg, is heading to Mumbai in late January to discuss a potential deal with Netflix on a new travel show production.

Dowding and former TMZ newsperson — who is known for his recent work with the international brand Trivago, has also had a hectic schedule over the past few months with his continued work promoting the hotel-booking platform online.

In good spirits! Leilani and Sean laughing and joking together as they left a coffee house on Sunset Plaza in Los Angeles

Leilani and Sean seemed in good spirits, laughing and joking together as they left a coffee house on Sunset Plaza, heading to the Christmas lunch date at the private club to meet with their friends — Lady Victoria Hervey and news reporter Caroline Feraday.

After the gathering, the fun foursome posed for festive snaps around the Christmas tree at the upmarket club, which led to Leilani throwing snow over the group as they posed happily together. The pictures later appeared on Sean’s Instagram page.

Rumor has it Dowding is on her way back to the UK to hold talks with the show’s producers on whether she will return to ‘The Real Housewives’ or not. Dowding is in a committed relationship with The Cult guitarist Billy Duffy who is currently on tour with the British rock super-group, and the couple’s partnership — now in its third year, is going strong.

Sources close to the show say Leilani is not making any decisions on ‘RHOC’ until she has met with producers.

This meeting is likely to take place around mid-December, according to insiders.
