Okay, I’m a few minutes late for this RHODubai recap but all three set ups are ready to go. Let’s do this! It appears I am going to have to relearn the faces for this one all over again. Ayan, aka Chanel is the only one I immediately recognize. Caroline Stanbury is about to marry her boytoy so of course she uses the event as a promotional to do it at the Raffles Hotel.
Caroline Stanbury are Lesa brought together poolside for high tea, it seems we are all staying at the Raffles Hotel for the week. Nina is going to run interference. Then, Iman shows up looking like Iman to support Lesa. They are ordering lots of snacks. How long until they get thrown? Stanbury apologizes and blames it on the alcohol. Then, as a backup she goes for the LVP standby, “It’s just my British humor.” Somehow, Lesa just accepts the standard apology. That scene was to short for the effort that Iman put into that look.
It’s Never Too Late to Become Someone Like Me~Sara Al Madani
Sara is hosting the Global Citizen Gala to help eradicate world hunger. That’s a huge deal. I am impressed. But, all I really care about Iman’s FASHIONS! Each is more interesting than the next. Plus, her therapist has her watering her fake plants to pretend like she is living in a garden. Sara really pushes hypnotherapy. AIN”T NOBODY ASKED FOR THAT! If watering her fake plants makes her feel better just be happy for her. Then she says, “It’s never too late to become someone like me. I was not born like this.” Then, at the big event, she has everyone stand up and pledge to be a better person. Dear Lord, the delusion runs deep with this one.
Back at Raffles, Caroline is having the most elegant pool party ever. And look, they are dispelling the myth about gay people not traveling to Dubai. Dubai loves taking money from foreigners. Iman is still talking about Sara’s judgmental and arrogant comments. Then Iman’s two friends fly in from London, and we all pause for that time-old game of Gay or European? Brooks is sending her son to boarding school, and Stanbury disapproves of the idea. So much unsolicited advice. Iman tries to make up with Brooks. Then, she breaks down because her dad is in the hospital in the US and she can’t get there. She is the one who has to take care of the whole family. Iman apologizes.
Now Back With More Of The Caroline Stanbury Show…
Caroline and her sister Jasmine join her father for dinner. Her mom is in the room sleeping because of “jetlag.” They are eating at a restaurant called Clap. If that were not unappetizing enough, it’s sushi. I’m hoping to get down the baked potato I have in the oven. Just stop! I’m going to try and do a twice baked potato. Fun fact! I do not have the stuff to make a twice baked potato. Anyway, Caroline is not looking forward to being around her new in-laws.
Brooks invites her two best gay friends and Sara over for dinner. Brook’s son Adam is so cute. He seems a bit young for boarding school. Brooks doesn’t even tuck him in. The help doesn’t just help in her house they do everything, just like in the movie. Sara kindly shares that he does seem to be a bit young for that and that most of the people she knows who went to boarding school are “cold” and felt abandoned. She tells her to get closer to him. My brother went to boarding school and had the time of his life. But that was grade 9 -12. He was home on holidays and all summer. I begged to go to summer school in Switzerland. My parents said a harsher version of what Sara said, “Boarding school is for parents who don’t love their kids.” They were just cheap. lol.
Her best friends side with Sara and Brooks goes bat shit and starts screaming at everyone. And that is one recap down two to go! Two of the women from RHODubai are on WWHL. I’ll watch that later and comment below if I am still up and kicking. 🙂
