Bravo just announced a series greenlight for The Real Housewives of Dubai, and now Andy Cohen is spilling ALL the tea on the newest Real Housewives franchise.
Andy, who is an executive producer of The Real Housewives, first announced the exciting news during an interview on TODAY on Monday, November 1 in which he dished on his new book out this week, Glitter Every Day: 365 Quotes from Women I Love. "Get your passports. Our 11th city. We're going to the billionaire's playground, the City of Gold, the desert oasis, The Real Housewives of Dubai! It's our first international city produced by Bravo. This is maje," Andy told TODAY co-anchors Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie. "It's huge!"
So, prepare to fall in love with this new dynamic bunch of women, according to Andy. "We have a great group of friends," he said. "This is gonna blow the lid off the entire franchise."
Andy, who will serve as an executive producer on The Real Housewives of Dubai, shared a similar sentiment in a statement in a press release announcing the new franchise. “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,” he said.
As Andy noted, this will be Bravo's first original international iteration of The Real Housewives (the series format has previously been sold around the world). The Real Housewives of Dubai is set to premiere in 2022.
And, in case you're wondering what else you can expect from The Real Housewives of Dubai, Bravo described it like so: "Premiering next year as the 11th city in the franchise, the series highlights a group of women navigating their relationships, careers, and supremely lavish and ultra-wealthy lifestyles in the United Arab Emirates. With the desert paradise of Dubai as the backdrop, this billionaire’s playground is known for its over-the-top opulence, jaw-dropping modern architecture and wild nightlife scene. Whether they’re coasting on a private plane, running their own empires or hosting on a private island, these glamourous, successful women are ready to serve up scorching hot drama and unexpected twists."
This will be Bravo's 11th Real Housewives franchise, which already includes 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 DC, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The Real Housewives of Miami, The Real Housewives of Potomac, The Real Housewives of Dallas, and The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.
The network is also looking for fans to help determine The Real Housewives of Dubai's official show hashtag. Using Twitter Conversation Cards, fans will be able to cast their vote for either #RHODubai or #RHODXB.
