Who are our newest Housewives of the desert?
The first overseas franchise will follow the over-the-top lives of Nina Ali, Chanel Ayan, Caroline Brooks, Dr. Sara Al Madani, Lesa Milan, and Bravo favorite, Caroline Stanbury. Though each woman has a unique story, they also share several similarities, like running powerful business empires in Dubai and being able to navigate the city’s exclusive social scene.
Nina Ali is a Lebanese lifestyle content creator who moved to Dubai in 2011 with her husband, Munaf. Nina prides herself on keeping it real, especially when it comes to raising her three children. Though she is supportive of her husband’s business endeavors, they must decide if the luxury is worth the many sacrifices.
Dubai’s first Black supermodel Chanel Ayan is a socialite, and a fashion and beauty expert. She is juggling motherhood and a highly anticipated makeup and skincare launch. When Chanel is confronted by demons from both her past and present, she realizes she can only hide behind couture for so long.
Boston-born to Honduran parents, Caroline Brooks, nicknamed Caroline DXB, is well-known in the Dubai real estate world and dreams of opening an inclusive spa. Self-made and driven, she will use any connections – including her ex-husband’s – to cement her and her son’s future.
Born and raised in the UAE, Dr. Sara Al Madani is a delicate mix of modern and traditional. After starting her first business at the early age of 15, Sara has become a public speaker and inspiration to young women in the region. Despite all her success, this twice-divorced mom of one is intent on finding the one thing that’s missing in her life, love.
Jamaican fashion designer Lesa Milan Hall is living out her dreams in Dubai. She is a devoted wife and loving mother to three and puts family first over everything. The former Miss Jamaica winner is proud of her luxury maternity fashion line Mina Roe but struggles to balance her work-life balance.
British star Caroline Stanbury was assumed to be in the cast from the moment the show was revealed to fans. The beautiful blonde Brit, podcaster, and mother of three has lived in Dubai for the last six years. After her divorce from ex-husband Cem Habib, she found happiness in Dubai with former Real Madrid soccer player Sergio Carallo. However, marrying someone much younger comes with its own set of challenges, especially around the topic of expanding their family.
