The Real Housewives of Dubai will soon return for a second season, and we are hyped! As announced at BravoCon, Season 2 will be released in 2024. It will feature five returning cast members, and one new leading lady. Chanel Ayan, Caroline Brooks, Caroline Stanbury, Sara Al Madani, and Lesa Milan will all be returning, while Taleen Marie will make her debut. Real Housewives of Dubai Season 2 has a ton of potential, here’s why!

RHODubai Has The Most Interesting Filming Location


While most of the Real Housewives shows are filmed in the United States, where the majority of their viewers are, Real Housewives of Dubai stands out. Dubai is truly a city unlike any other, which makes it the perfect place to film. From the desert to the luxurious city, Dubai is the perfect place for any reality television show.

Let’s face it, it’s much more interesting to watch the cast explore Dubai than any of the other respective filming locations. Season 2 promises even more Dubai glitz and glamour, which has us on the edge of our seats! While Dubai is known for luxury, it also sits in the Middle East, so there are some cultural differences. This is part of what makes the series so unique, and so enticing to watch.

We Are Hype To Meet Taleen

Taleen is the only new housewife joining Real Housewives of Dubai Season 2, and we are stoked to officially meet her on screen! Season 2 needed a fresh face, and Taleen seems to be the perfect choice. The mother of two is a family woman, but also takes her business ventures seriously. Taleen has her own fitness brand, so it would be interesting to see this discussed on screen as well.

Though not originally from Dubai, Taleen has lived there for nearly eight years. Taleen is Armenian-American, and previously lived in the U.S. for many years. As a result, Taleen is certainly familiar with Dubai, but may also have tendencies American viewers can relate to. It will be interesting to see how Taleen meshes with the rest of the ladies once the season begins!

Chanel Is Returning

Luckily, Chanel is one of the ladies returning for Season 2 after she became an instant fan favorite during Season 1. Chanel was a standout star for many reasons, one being that she opened up about her career as a super model and businesswoman. Season 1 featured fun moments from Dubai Fashion Week, which is a big to-do in the UAE. Hopefully, Season 2 will showcase even more from moments from Chanel and her career.

Chanel is also one of the most inspiring cast members, and opened up about her background that is significantly different from most Real Housewives. Chanel was born and raised in Kenya, where she grew up in a small village. She later rejected arranged marriage so that she could marry for love, and later moved to Dubai. Chanel’s story is truly fascinating, and she is the type of person that you actually want to root for when watching her on television.

So Is Sara

Sara was another breakout star from Real Housewives of Dubai Season 1, and we are so glad that she will be returning for Season 2. Like Chanel, Sara is an accomplished businesswoman and fashion designer. We love this group of well-rounded queens! Sara was also one of the only single ladies from Season 1, so her storyline was always one of the more interesting to follow.

Another likable thing about Sara was the fact that she is the only cast member who was born and raised in the UAE. This is important, since Dubai is a place with a unique story and history. Sara knew Dubai before it became the glam capital of the world, so she has an interesting perspective on a lot of things that the other women do not.

While the Real Housewives of Dubai Season 1 had some room for improvement, Season 2 has a lot of potential. With a fun new cast member, and five returning ones, this season should be one for the books. While there is not yet an exact release date, many viewers anticipate that it will be released in early 2024.
