Andy Cohen, the talk show host and executive producer of ‘The Real Housewives of Dubai,’ appeared on NBC’s “Today” to announce that Bravo has approved ‘The Real Housewives of Dubai.‘
Despite the fact that the ‘Real Housewives’ format has been used all over the world, with some series, such as ‘The Real Housewives of Melbourne,’ airing on Bravo, there has never been an official international version of the show until now, according to a daily.
The first season of ‘The Real Housewives of Dubai,’ which has yet to begin filming, will premiere next year. In the Bravo world, the project has been a well-kept secret, and many people correctly predicted that Cohen would reveal it on ‘Today.’
Caroline Stanbury, formerly of Bravo’s ‘Ladies of London,’ is a safe bet to be in the group, even though the network hasn’t announced any casting yet.
From 2014 to 2017, that ‘Real Housewives’-style docusoap followed the lives of rich society women in London for three seasons.
Stanbury was an excellent Bravo-lebrity on the show, imperious and glamorous in equal measure, and the series finale of ‘Ladies of London’ was titled ‘Dubai Felicia’ to reflect Stanbury’s impending relocation to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Stanbury divorced Cem Habib, with whom she has three children, and announced her engagement to Sergio Carrallo, a former Real Madrid professional soccer player, in January 2021.
‘The Real Housewives of Dubai,’ according to a press release from Bravo, will focus on “a group of women navigating their relationships, careers, and ultra-luxurious lifestyles in the United Arab Emirates. With Dubai as its backdrop, this billionaire’s playground is known for its extravagant opulence, jaw-dropping modern architecture, and wild nightlife scene “..
“Everything is bigger in Dubai,” Cohen said in a statement. “I couldn’t be more excited to launch Bravo’s first international ‘Housewives’ series in a city I’ve admired for years, with an outstanding group of friends as our guides.”
