Andy Cohen Announces Newest ‘Housewives’ Franchise: ‘The Real Housewives of Dubai’

Pack your bags, the latest Real Housewives franchise is taking over a brand new city, and this time, we’re going international.

On Monday, Bravo announced its 11th city in the popular reality series, marking the network's first original international installment. Andy Cohen broke the exciting news during a visit to the Today show, revealing that the series has yet to begin production.

“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,” Cohen said. “This is going to blow the lid off of the entire franchise.”

According to the network’s official synopsis, the series will follow a “group of women navigating their relationships, careers, and supremely lavish and ultra-wealthy lifestyles in the United Arab Emirates. 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.”

Unfortunately, we still don’t have a specific premiere date. However, Bravo did reveal that The Real Housewives of Dubai is set to air sometime in 2022. And while it’s not officially confirmed, Variety points out that fans of the franchise believe that Caroline Stanbury, formerly of Bravo’s Ladies of London, will be a part of the cast. During the series finale in 2017, Stanbury picked up and moved to Dubai, so this theory is very possible.

We guess we won’t have to wait long to find out more.
