After BravoCon 2022 concluded, The Real Housewives of New York City Season 14 cast member Ubah Hassan teased that she got a “pep talk” during an enviable crossover lunch date with The Real Housewives of Dubai’s Chanel Ayan.

“Probably one of the best [lunches] this year. [Chanel Ayan,] you’re the most supportive kindest human being,” Ubah wrote on Instagram on October 18. “Thank you for the pep-talk and the unconditional support.”

Fast-forward about a week later, and Ubah elaborated on the kind of advice Ayan gave her to prepare for RHONY Season 14. 

“Chanel just said to have entertainment, drama. But nothing ill-intended because we are all human and we are all women,” Ubah told Page Six during the Angel Ball in downtown Manhattan. “Make it fun, but don’t go below the belt.”

In addition to her words of wisdom about the drama, Ayan (who is Ubah’s cousin, according to Page Six) also told the RHONY newbie why her fellow Season 14 cast members may “think twice” before they disagree with her.

“Chanel told me, ‘Look, you are from Somalia so you will be fine. They will think twice before trying to mess with us,’” Ubah added.

Will Ubah follow Ayan’s advice? You’ll have to tune in to RHONY when Season 14 premieres to find out.
