It’s the first official international ‘Housewives’ franchise at Bravo and its primary production company
Per Bravo’s logline: “The Real Housewives of Dubai follows a powerful group of lavish women as they run business empires and expertly navigate a highly exclusive social scene within this ultra-luxe Billionaire’s Playground. Whether they’re dining on a mountainside overlooking a valley of 1,000 camels or hosting the wedding event of the year, these ambitious and glamorous women prove everything is more extravagant in the ‘City of Gold.’ When new group dynamics threaten long-standing friendships, tensions inevitably reach a boiling point.”
Former The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks makes a cameo in the trailer as she grabs lunch with one of the ladies.
