Real Housewives spoilers find the franchise is expanding with a 12th location and all new Housewives joining the Bravo staple. This time we’re going overseas- all the way to the oil rich and ultra-mod Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
Stand back Sutton Stracke and your Bentley convertible.
It is presumed the Real Housewives of Dubai will have money to burn if they live in one of the richest countries in the world.
Though no names have formally been attached to the project yet, almost as soon as the Bravo teaser dropped in Instagram Millionaire Matchmaker, Patti Stanger got tongues wagging when she shouted out a congratulations to her pal Caroline Stanbury. Bravo audiences will remember Caroline from the reality series Ladies of London that ran for 3 seasons, ending in 2017.

Though no confirmation came from the king of Bravo, Andy Cohen, Caroline does live in Dubai and has recently embarked on her so-called 2nd chapter of her life with her engagement to former Real Madrid soccer pro, Sergio Carrallo.
Though there are international franchises of the Real Housewives, with the show currently or previously filming in Australia, Canada, South Africa and the UK, this will be the first international version for Bravo.
“Everything’s bigger in Dubai, and I couldn’t be more excited to launch Bravo’s first international Housewives series in a city I’ve been fascinated by for years, with an outstanding group of friends as our guides,” executive producer Andy Cohen said in a statement, promising Dubai will turn the franchise on its head.
Commenters on Instagram seem to be very excited about the new locale, but we all will have to wait until the vague premier date of “2022” to watch. Until then, Bravo is sure whetting appetites, writing as their press release:
“With the desert paradise of Dubai as the backdrop, this billionaire’s playground is known for its over-the-top opulence, jaw-dropping modern architecture and wild nightlife scene. Whether they’re coasting on a private plane, running their own empires or hosting on a private island, these glamourous, successful women are ready to serve up scorching hot drama and unexpected twists.”
