Well, here we go with the first RHODubai recap. The only person I know is Caroline Stanbury. She was on Ladies of London which none of you would watch with me, and she is a whole show in one. The season finale of the show all the women went to Dubai. It was so much fun. I’m optimistic about this season. But, I am kind of dreading recaps because I don’t know who is who yet so it will be hard. Also the above photo was the only one on the NBCu Media site other than individual ones from the same shoot. I guess the photographers didn’t get to go to Dubai. So this is going to be problematic. Pray for me I am going in!
Getting To Know The Housewives
Sorry so late, RHOBH took forever to recap, I have no idea why. Probably just brain fog. We start with Chanel Ayan who thinks very highly of herself. She is Kenyan and kind of a bitch. Apparently, she is a model. Her son is her best friend and when her husband goes out of town, she doesn’t make him go to school. Caroline Stanbury is about to marry her boy toy. Nina comes over to visit with Caroline. Caroline and her boytoy actually got married in Mauritius because they can’t legally marry in Dubai. So the wedding we will soon see is just for show, although she says it is so friends and family can be there. People are flying in from everywhere, Caroline says that Sergio wanted the wedding. She didn’t care either way. He’s even coming to the hen party.
Lesa is married to Rich and they have three sons. He is also aptly named as he is a big deal in the finance world. They met ten years ago in Miami. They seem like a happy family. Lesa is Jamaican. She is a fashion designer. Up next is Caroline Brooks, she’s American. We will be calling her Brooks to distinguish the two Carolines. She has one son. She is a single mom with two homes. I thought she said said she gave everything up in the divorce. Is she really making that kind of money? Lesa and Chanel go out for a drink. Lesa tells Chanel she is not going to make it to Hermes with here because Caroline Stanbury is getting married. Chanel is not invited to any of Caroline Stanbury’s wedding events. Then, Brooks calls Lesa to see what she is wearing to the hen party.
The Hen Party
Caroline Stanbury throws her own hen party on a huge yacht and Sergio is there. Awkward. I imagine it will be much more civilized than a US bachelorette party. Caroline’s friend Michael also comes to the party. If I wasn’t such a basket case I would date Michael. So much for civility. The games at this party are obscene. It looks like a lot of fun though. Next we meet Nina Ali. I guess she wasn’t invited to the hen party? I’m so confused. She has a husband and three kids. She is Lebanese but grew up in Texas.
Then we met Sara Al Madnani and her nanny. Sarah is local to the UAE and she is Muslim but modern. Kind of like Dubai. Sara has been divorced twice. Holy Crap! Did she just say she rented out the entire rooftop of Burj Khalifa? A, I don’t think Burj Khalifa has a roof top it’s like a mile tall! And B, That would cost millions of dollars if they did. Ah I rewound. She is renting out the rooftop of the apartment she lives in with view of Burj Khalifa. That makes more sense.
It’s Time For The All Cast
It’s time for
Sara’s rooftop dinner. Sara was raised in Austen so she is kind of hippy dippy with the crystals and the full moon. Fun fact: Never have a housewives brawl during a full moon on a rooftop! I confess I have no idea who is having this party. It’s not Sara though. Chanel Ayan shows up and announces to the table how good SHE looks tonight. She’s obnoxiou no wonder Caroline didn’t invite her to the hen party. Caroline clearly hates her. Then, Chanel says for them not to talk about the hen party she wasn’t invited to. Oh Lord. Here we go. Caroline Stanbury will eat her for dinner. Caroline is not to be fucked with.
Every ignores Chanel who they call by her last name Ayan, because that is not confusing and talk about how much fun the hen party was. Aya interrupts to make a toast to Nina who is apparently the host of the dinner. That would be nice if it were about that. But, Nina really just wants to trash talk Brooks. She says Brooks called her at seven o’clock in the morning (if someone were to call me at that hour, someone better be dead). She claims Brooks says that Caroline was only inviting important people to the party and that Ayan was not invited because she is not important. What she actually said was Caroline was inviting people who are important to HER. It’s her wedding.
Nina puts a stop to the screaming match and says she is not having it at her dinner. It seems to work at least for now. We have to tune in next week to see how the dinner party ends. My money is on champagne to the face for someone.
