Bravo Gives the Greenlight to Spinoff Series “The Real Housewives of Dubai”

When you stop to think about it, it’s really quite amazing what a cultural phenomenon The Real Housewives franchise has become not just in the U.S., but across the whole blessed globe. Fans are apparently insatiable for this group of shows that focuses on the lives of well-off housewives that hang their hat in a particular city. Since 2006, viewers have been gifted with The Real Housewives of Orange County, The Real Housewives of New York City, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, The Real Housewives of New Jersey, The Real Housewives of D.C., The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and on and on. Heck, for all I know there might just be a Real Housewives of the Oakland Trailer Park before I’m done typing out this article; it could happen.

 Finally, the series has gone global; exactly what we were all hoping might happen one fine day. According to our The Simple Life and Keeping Up With the Kardashian addicts over at The Hollywood Reporter, a spinoff of the franchise is forthcoming and will be entitled The Real Housewives of Dubai.

 Marking the very first foray by our tried-and-true franchise into international waters, The Real Housewives of Dubai (the eleventh city featured in the show’s run), much like its U.S. counterparts, will follow a group of women “navigating their relationships, careers and supremely lavish and ultra-wealthy lifestyles in the United Arab Emirates,” according to the publicity dept. over at Bravo.

 Andy Cohen, executive producer of The Real Housewives of Dubai channeled the restless spirit of Robin Leach as he proudly proclaimed that “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.”

Bravo is requesting fan interaction to assist in choosing the official series hashtag using Twitter Conversation Cards (yep, that’s a thing) and vote for either #RHODubai or #RHODXB.

The newest chapter in the continuing Real Housewives saga is being brought to us courtesy of the ironically named production house Truly Original, as well as executive producers Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin, Jamie Jakimo, Brandon Panaligan, Glenda Cox and Chelsey Stephens.

 The Real Housewives of Dubai will make its premiere in 2022.
