It’s hard to believe we’re about to be in the year 2022. I’m still getting over all of the Zoom reunions from 2020 *shivers*. This past year has been big for Bravo. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills had arguably its best season ever, not even just because Kathy Hilton made her debut. We got introduced to the magical (or rather, messy) mashup that is Winter House. The Great Salad Toss of Potomac happened in the year of our Lord, 2021. In just a few weeks, we’ll see the ultimate Bravolebrity vacation with the Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip premiere. While it’ll be a hard one to beat, 2022 is already looking up.
Bravo has a lot planned for next year. BravoCon was postponed again, so fingers crossed the Disneyland for Bravo fans can happen next year. And in more recent news, Bravo is switching up RHOD — they got rid of Real Housewives of Dallas and will be introducing its first international city with Real Housewives of Dubai. Bring it on, baby. If it’s anything like the RHOBH trip to the United Arab Emirates, it’ll be amazing. Now, we’re left wondering who’s in the cast, and when the first episode will actually premiere.
Casting rumors are always running amok in the Bravoverse, so it’s not shocking the same rumor mill is happening with the newest city. Ladies of London star Caroline Stanbury, who now lives in Dubai, is rumored to be at the show’s center. We’ve also heard straight from the horse (aka Andy Cohen)’s mouth that he would welcome a Lindsay Lohan appearance on the show. And now Daddy Andy is teasing us even more about the cast.
People reports that Andy revealed the cast is all set for Real Housewives of Dubai, while appearing on Live with Kelly and Ryan. “We haven’t announced the cast yet. It’s a great group of friends,” Andy said. So they’re staying true to the Housewives roots by capturing genuine friendships between the rich and famous. That’s always a recipe for a solid season.
Andy went on to gush about the “billionaire’s playground” that is Dubai. “You know, they’re gonna give the Beverly Hills women a run for their money,” he added. He’s speaking my freakin’ language. I need wealth, opulence, and over-the-top with this new show. In a city like Dubai, it seems impossible for that not to be the case.
