Prepare to pack your bags and travel to the City of Gold this summer for some drama. The Real Housewives of Dubai premieres with a supersized episode on Wednesday, June 1 at 9/8c. We’ve got all the specifics on what to expect from the series, including the fact that one of the cast members is a well-known and fashionable face.
The Real Housewives of Dubai will follow Nina Ali, Chanel Ayan, Caroline Brooks, Dr. Sara Al Madani, Lesa Milan, and Caroline Stanbury, who Bravo viewers originally met on Ladies of London.
Dubai is the franchise’s eleventh city and the first original international rendition. It chronicles the opulent lives of a group of vibrant women who operate corporate empires while deftly navigating an ultra-exclusive social scene within this ultra-luxe billionaire’s playground. You can see a teaser starring the ladies who are “taking Dubai by storm” below, as well as discover more about the cast and their opulent lifestyles in the City of Gold, according to a press release.
Nina Ali was born in Lebanon and reared in Texas. She moved to Dubai in 2011 with her husband, Munaf, as a lifestyle content creator. Nina appreciates authenticity and takes pride in being the “genuine thing,” especially when it comes to raising her three children. While she supports her husband’s rich business ventures, they must determine whether the penthouses and personal chauffeurs are worth the numerous sacrifices.
Chanel Ayan, Dubai’s first Black supermodel, is a gorgeous socialite renowned for her grace and stunning style. Chanel is a fashion and beauty guru who is a boss both on and off the runway. She is balancing parenting and a highly anticipated beauty and skincare launch while running her thriving talent agency. Chanel finds that she can only hide behind couture for so long when confronted with monsters from both her past and present.
Caroline Brooks, born in Boston to two Honduran immigrants, is a proud first-generation American and Afro-Latina with a larger-than-life zest for business. Caroline DXB, as she is known in the Dubai real estate sector, aspires to create an all-inclusive spa. Self-made and tenacious, she will leverage any connections – including those of her ex-husband – in order to secure her and her son’s future.
Dr. Sara Al Madani
Dr. Sara Al Madani was born and raised in the United Arab Emirates and spans two worlds: modern and traditional. Sara began her first business at the tender age of 15 and has grown into a frequent public speaker and role model for young women in the community. Despite her success, this twice-divorced mother of one is determined to discover the one thing lacking from her life: love.
Lesa Milan was born in Jamaica and now resides in Dubai as a successful fashion designer, devoted wife, and adoring mother of three. Lesa, the queen of her household, is extremely loyal and prioritizes her family above all else. The former Miss Jamaica is pleased of her luxury maternity fashion label Mina Roe, but concerns that its popularity could jeopardize her personal life.
Caroline Stanbury returns to Bravo with wider horizons as a luxury brand ambassador and host of the popular relationship podcast Divorced Not Dead. Following her divorce, the mother of three found happiness in Dubai with Sergio Carallo, a former Real Madrid soccer player. However, marrying someone far younger presents unique problems, particularly when it comes to family expansion.
