The Real Housewives Of Dubai Cast: Who Are the Cast Or Housewives of This Show?
The first season of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Dubai” is almost ready to premiere, and it promises to be glamorous and dramatic, in addition to being the franchise’s first attempt at expanding internationally.
The action takes place in Dubai, which is the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates and is well-known for its diverse population and extravagant lifestyle.
Nina Ali, Chanel Ayan, Caroline Brooks, Dr. Sara Al Madani, Lesa Milan, and Caroline Stanbury (previously of the Bravo show “Ladies of London”) will be featured on “The Real Housewives of Dubai,” which will make its debut on Bravo on Wednesday, June 1 at 9 p.m. Eastern Time.
TODAY met down with the cast in advance of the launch to talk about everything that this season has to offer, as well as what (and who) to keep an eye out for during the show’s episodes. The interview was conducted in anticipation of the forthcoming premiere.
Six New Housewives Are Introduced by the Cast.
The cast includes five new women to the pantheon of Bravo stars as well as one returning star. Ali explained, “We’re six extremely unique ladies, each leading our own lives and being quite different from one another.” Each of us has achieved success in our own right.
Joining the cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been a rewarding experience for Milan, who has stated that she has been a fan of the show “Housewives” for “basically forever.” Milan shared his thoughts, saying, “I’m incredibly thrilled. I have no regrets. And up to this point, everything has been fantastic.”
Nina Ali is a successful businesswoman, entrepreneur, and mother of three. Although she was born in Lebanon, she was raised in Austin, Texas. Ali and her husband made the trip to Dubai in 2011, where she immediately began co-founding their luxury fruit cake business and also started a family.
Chanel Ayan is a supermodel, businesswoman, and mother who was born in Kenya and can trace her ancestry back to Somalia and Ethiopia. Her father is from Kenya, and her mother is from Ethiopia. After relocating to Dubai with her husband of 22 years, Ayan became recognised as a fashion star due to her extravagant approach to both her appearance and her sense of style. Today, Ayan is juggling the creation of an inspiring makeup and skincare company called Ayan Beauty with modelling, parenthood, and the never-ending drama that her social circle is involved in.
Caroline Brooks is an accomplished Afro-Latina businesswoman and mother who is also a proud first-generation American. In 2010, Brooks relocated from Massachusetts to Dubai with her now-ex-husband, where she worked for the firms that her former spouse owned. After they broke up, Brooks went on to become one of the first women to hold the position of real estate director in the region. She has just recently opened the Glass House Salon and Spa, which is a high-end establishment that welcomes women of all different skin tones, hair textures, and hair colours.
Dr. Sara Al Madani
Dr. Sara Al Madani, who was born and raised in the United Arab Emirates, is a successful businesswoman who has won numerous awards. After launching her first company at the age of 15, she has since become an accomplished public speaker. She has given more than 200 keynote addresses, all of which encourage young women to believe in themselves and work toward achieving their professional ambitions. She is responsible for raising both of her kids on her own.
Lesa “Milan” Hall is a mother, a businesswoman, and a clothes designer. She is originally from Jamaica. She is the mother of three children, in addition to being the founder and head designer of the luxury maternity wear brand Mina Roe.
Caroline Stanbury is a mother of three, a businesswoman, a podcast host, a philanthropist, and she was born and raised in London. After the completion of Bravo’s “Ladies of London,” she moved to Dubai with her family, where she currently resides, along with her husband.
There has been a significant amount of development in Stanbury’s life since the cameras were last in her presence. In 2019, she filed for divorce from Cem Habib, and two years later, in 2021, she wed Sergio Carallo, a former soccer player for Real Madrid. Stanbury, the host of the widely listened-to podcast “Divorced Not Dead,” has made it his mission to demonstrate that personal growth is achievable at any age.
When Asked About Her Comeback to Bravo, Caroline Stanbury Said, “I Always Wanted to Come Back.”
Caroline Stanbury, who was a public favourite on “Ladies of London,” is coming back to Bravo five years after the show’s finale, offering viewers the opportunity to observe how she has changed. Stanbury was not shocked to learn that she had returned to Bravo, but she was taken aback by the location to which she had been transferred.
“I didn’t realise I would be making such a leap, but coming back to Bravo has always been a dream of mine.” Stanbury added, “It’s astounding to me that I’m the first person to ever do the leap from a different franchise. I didn’t realise until today that I am the first one to ever do this.”
The experience that Stanbury had while filming “RHODubai” was very different from what she had when filming “Ladies of London.” In a nutshell, she claimed that her second opportunity to experience reality was less stressful than the first time around.
“Before, I was doing it with my family and individuals who I grew up with, who maybe knew which buttons to push in me more than these girls do. I was doing it with them. “Or the ones who do here, I don’t really care about, so it just doesn’t have the same effect on me as it would on other people,” Stanbury said.
Stanbury has maintained a relationship with her fellow Bravolebrities, and she counts Dorinda Medley, Larsa Pippen, Lisa Rinna, and Meredith Marks among her close friends. In point of fact, Stanbury persuaded Marks to participate in “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” while Marks was on the fence about putting her life on display for the entire world to see.
Stanbury was quoted as saying, “She was in London, and I was in ‘Ladies of London.'” I was like, you’ve got to do it. I compare it to giving birth because it is quite challenging to be pregnant at the time that you are experiencing it, but after you have given birth, you think to yourself, “Oh, I want to do that again.”
