Andy Cohen says Real Housewives of Dubai is going to 'blow the lid off the entire franchise'

Bravo fans around the world rejoiced when Andy Cohen announced Bravo would be adding an 11th Housewives city to its current portfolio — and this time they're taking it international. "The Real Housewives of Dubai" will be the franchise's first international city, according to the "Most Talkative" author. "We have a great group of friends," Cohen revealed to TODAY. "This is going to blow the lid off the entire franchise." 

Cohen joined Jenna Bush and Hoda Kotb again during "Hoda & Jenna," per People, to divulge even more details and explain why Dubai was chosen. "It really is a place people are fascinated by, and I think people don't know much about it," Cohen explained. According to a network synopsis (via People), the show follows a "group of women navigating their relationships, careers, and supremely lavish and ultra-wealthy lifestyles in the United Arab Emirates." 

The synopsis continues, explaining that Dubai is "known for its over-the-top opulence, jaw-dropping modern architecture and wild nightlife scene." As for the women? "Whether they're coasting on a private plane, running their own empires or hosting on a private island, these glamorous, successful women are ready to serve up scorching hot drama and unexpected twists." While there is no set premiere date, Bravo's official Instagram account reveals that fans can expect the show to premiere sometime in 2022.
