Ready for an international adventure? The Real Housewives of Dubai are landing soon on Bravo, and they're definitely going to make it nice

The network completely threw devotees for a loop in the best way possible when, on November 1, 2021, the Bravo team took to Instagram to tease followers with the big news. "Watch this space," the account warned—and fans obliged. 

That's how they quickly learned that a new TV show about gossip, friendship circles and—in typical Bravo fashion—drama was set to hit screens. We've hit the East Coat with The Real Housewives of New York and New Jersey, and the West with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Orange County. Potomac and Salt Lake City are the most recent Housewives additions, but it only makes sense to go international, right? 

"This is going to blow the lid off the entire franchise," executive producer Andy Cohen said on the TODAY show on November 1. "Get your passports, our 11th city! We are going to the billionaire's playground, the city of gold, the desert oasis—The Real Housewives of Dubai."

We have a feeling this is going to be a wild ride. Here's everything you need to know about the latest addition to the Bravo brand.

Watch 'The Real Housewives of Dubai' trailer:

The Real Housewives franchise is hitting up the City of Gold (if this city's nickname doesn't beg for a reality TV show, we're not entirely sure what does) for its 11th iteration. And though this teaser trailer—released on April 1, 2022—is slim on details, it's heavy on glitz and glamour.

We see our six new Housewives strutting their stuff across the desert in gold sequined gowns, with sparkling accessories and water waves on point. The trailer is fittingly captioned: "They're taking the desert by storm."
