Chanel Ayan Throws Major Shade at Her Castmates

Chanel Ayan made it known she is “the best of the best there is, period” in The Real Housewives of Dubai’s Season 1 premiere, and the stunning supermodel definitely spilled the best tea there is on her fellow Dubai Housewives, including details on her tension with Caroline Stanbury, when she made her Clubhouse debut on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Dubai Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

During her June 8 appearance on WWHL, Ayan revealed what she loved — and what she didn’t love so much — about Nina Ali, Caroline BrooksSara Al MadaniLesa Milan, and Caroline S. with a game of “Toast ’Em and Roast ’Em” (clip above), in which host Andy Cohen asked her to dish on each castmate.

As fans may recall, Ayan opened up to Sara about her family on the June 8 episode as the two formed a bond, and she relayed just how fond she was of Sara on WWHL, saying, “She’s smart, and I love having fun with her. There’s no shade toward her.” Ayan shared the same sentiment about Lesa, whom she memorably gifted a goat on the June 8 episode, telling Andy she had lots of love for her bestie: “She’s a boss lady, great mom, and such a hot woman!”

Check out the above clip to see what other juicy details Ayan revealed about her fellow Dubai Housewives, including which cast member she argues with “more than you see” on the show.

When it came to dishing on Caroline S., however, Ayan had quite different feelings from what she expressed about Lesa and Sara. Aside from telling Andy she was “happy” that Caroline married Sergio Carrallo, Ayan didn’t have much else to add. That is, until Andy commented on the tension between Ayan and Caroline in the clip below, saying, “You and Stanbury have quite a ride this season.”

And it appears as though Ayan and Caroline S.’s issues with each other, including Caroline S. not inviting Ayan to her hen party on the June 1 episode, have not yet been resolved, as Ayan told Andy, “No, I don’t think we had a ride. I think we just had, like, a sliding.”

Was Sutton Stracke’s Pool Story Problematic?

Ayan spilled even more details on Caroline S. during the WWHL After Show, including an absolute must-see moment involving two unforgettable members of the Clubhouse virtual audience, who asked Ayan to share her thoughts on Nina “trying to be besties” with Caroline S. Ayan had quite a lot to say on the matter, which you can check out in the WWHL After Show clip below.

Of course, Caroline S. had a lot to say in response to the shade, including a comment she made on Instagram replying to Ayan’s views on Caroline S.’s relationship with Sergio.

And after a virtual fan asked Ayan on WWHL to name three things she “admired” about Caroline S. and Sergio’s relationship, the RHODubai supermodel replied, in part, “Hes really a nice guy. Hes really the sweetest, kindest person youve ever met, so I really love him for that.
