There are many interesting personalities in the Dubai Bling cast, but Zeina Khoury is the only one known as the "Queen of Versace."

Khoury is one of a group of hyper-wealthy residents living in the United Arab Emirates—including billionaire widow Loujain Adada, rose entrepreneur Ebraheem al Samadi and famous TV presenter Lojain Omran—featured on the Bling Empire-esque reality show, which debuted on Netflix on Thursday, October 27.

Zeina serves as the series' unofficial guide to this world of ostentatious wealth, desert glam, sky-high ambitions and good old-fashioned catfights. “Many people have become millionaires in Dubai, and I am one of them,” she says in the show. 

But how did Zeina Khoury amass her fortune and how did she get herself that fashionably regal nickname? Here's what we know about the Dubai Bling star. 

Who is Zeina Khoury from 'Dubai Bling'?

Now the CEO and Chief Growth Officer of High Mark Real Estate, a luxury brokerage in the UAE, Zeina Khoury says in one episode of Dubai Bling that she was "part of the team that founded Palazzo Versace Dubai," a five-star hotel that's located on Dubai's Jaddaf Waterfront and has hosted everyone from 50 Cent to Shah Rukh Khan to Jennifer Lopez. 

The developers of Palazzo Versace Dubai "offered me a position and by the 3rd month I got the top sales award and the rest is history," Khoury told Harper's Bazaar Arabia (opens in new tab). "A job in real estate has no floor but no ceiling either. I gambled on the unlimited income potential and it worked in my favour." And thus, the self-proclaimed "Queen of Versace" was born. 

Zeina Khoury age: how old is she?

Born on December 13, 1983, in Lebanon, Zeina Khoury is currently 38 years old. She is a Sagittarius. 

She graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Lebanon's Notre Dame University - Louaize in 2006, moving to Dubai that same year. Khoury also went to Columbia Business School in 2017, learning digital marking, and completed her executive MBA from London Business School in 2022. 

Zeina Khoury husband: who is she married to?

Zeina Khoury has been married to Hanna Azzi, the general manager of Nikki Beach Hotels & Resorts EMEA in Pearl Jumeira, Dubai, for more than a decade. They share two young children, a son named Joe and a daughter named Alexa. Not much is known of Azzi outside of the show or Khoury's personal handles, as he does not have any social media. 

The couple has some tension in the first season of Dubai Bling, during which Khoury discovers that there exists a Bumble dating profile with her husband's picture but a different name on it. Azzi claims not to know anything about the profile and says it's nothing but a catfish account, but we have a feeling it's not the only relationship drama we'll be seeing from these two this season. 

Zeina Khoury net worth: what is it?

Everyone's curious about the Dubai Bling cast net worth and while Zeina Khoury isn't the richest reality personality on the show, she's no slouch in the financial department. The real estate CEO is allegedly worth $2.8 million. That should keep her in Versace designs for a while, no? 

Zeina Khoury height: how tall is she?

Khoury stands at the leggy height of approximately five foot seven inches. 

Season one of Dubai Bling is currently available to stream on Netflix. Will we get a Dubai Bling season 2? Stay tuned!
