Is there a Real Housewives of Dubai?

Finally after years of waiting, The Real Housewives series by Bravo is launching it’s international version of the series in Dubai!

The fabulous city which has rose to global fame is located in the United Arab Emirates. We’re just surprised they didn’t do a series sooner!

The Real Housewives of Dubai where to watch

Depending on where you live, these are the channels which you can watch or stream the new series.

UAE

There isn’t a live channel that will be showing the premiere and as far as I can tell there aren’t any UAE based streaming services that will be airing the series either.

So in order to watch the series, you’ll need a VPN along with a US or UK streaming service.

I highly recommend using a VPN for this and I’ve found NordVPN to be one of the most recommended in UAE

Insider tip – You may need to set up the VPN while in your home country or use a friend’s VPN service to set it up as often the website or even the ability to download the app can be blocked within the UAE

VPNs aren’t illegal in the UAE but using a VPN to access content that is illegal such as pornography or gambling is.

Real Housewives of Dubai trailer

Bravo recently released their first longer trailer after a short teaser, you can watch it below!

The trailer has caused controversy within the UAE where foul language in public is against the law and many residents have said the video doesn’t reflect the values of the UAE.

The controversy reflects the two sides to Dubai, the expat lifestyle and the Islamic Emirati origins.

It is entirely possible in Dubai to live a very traditional Islamic lifestyle or a completely western one, where it’s easy to forget you’re even in an Islamic country. Dubai has been hugely protective of its image in the past and the recent release of many TV series show the country is now more willing to publicly air the the less traditional side of Dubai.

It is particularly interesting to see how Sara Al Madani, as someone who is a representative of Emirati and Khaleeji culture in the series, will represent those two sides to Dubai.

Dubai has been hugely protective of the global image of Emiratis in the past. So many of us are wondering what exactly the series will show and what the reaction by Emiratis will be.

Conclusion

The executive producer of Real Housewives series, Andy Cohen has said he thinks the show will break a lot of the stereotypes around Dubai and what life is like in the city. Viewers will see a lot they don’t expect.

Many thought Lindsey Lohan would be part of the series however with the cast now confirmed. We know this isn’t the case but maybe she’ll make an appearance in the future? Are you excited for the new series? Will you be watching it? Let me know in the comments!
