Chanel Ayan is the breakout star of "The Real Housewives of Dubai."
Ayan is a notable model who now runs an agency. She cast her first plus-size models on the show.
She accidentally called them "supersize" and blamed the slip on English not being her first language.
"The Real Housewives of Dubai" star Chanel Ayan accidentally called plus-size models "supersize" when helping cast models for a Mina Roe runway show.
"Don't forget the supersize girls," she said to her castmate Lesa Milan, who owns Mina Roe, a maternity and ready-to-wear line. "We need more of them."
"Plus-size," corrected her friend and stylist William. "This is not McDonald's, girl," added Milan.
An experienced model who has appeared in Vogue Arabia and other high profile publications, Ayan modeled for the Mina Roe line over several seasons before lending a hand in production. Milan referred to Ayan as her "muse" for the brand. "I get her pregnant every year," she joked.
It was Ayan's first experience with procuring plus-size models for a fashion event.
"Many, many big brands, they come to me to get models because I have a modeling agency. But this is the first time a client ever asked me for a plus-sized model," explained Ayan. She went on to confirm that she understood that "supersize is food" and "not humans."
Ayan attributed her slip of the tongue to English not being her first language. A video of her declaring that she is "a bad ass bitch" in four separate languages went viral after the show's premiere on June 1. The clip established her as the breakout star of the new franchise. "I should be better," she admitted during a confessional before explaining that she was "getting better" at working on being able to say things "verbatim."
Shortly after, she quickly looked up the word "verbatim" on her phone to make sure she was using it correctly.
"The Real Housewives of Dubai" airs Wednesdays on Bravo at 9 p.m. ET.
