Bravo took viewers to the city of gold – Dubai – with the highly anticipated series premiere of The Real Housewives of Dubai June 1. This city’s elite social circles include tech entrepreneurs, including Sara Al-Madaniand fashion moguls, such as Lesa Milano. London ladies alum Caroline Stanbury is also part of the cast, and this week she celebrated her engagement on a yacht. Unfortunately for her, however, sandstorms began to gather on the horizon when carolina streams let it be known that Chanel Ayan was excluded from the guest list. And that everything culminated, under the new moon, at Nina Aliis the rooftop dinner.
This week, Caroline revealed that she had already legally married her husband, Sergio Carrallo, but since she was still planning a big wedding ceremony for her friends and family to attend, she wanted to throw an engagement party. So she did — but she didn’t invite Chanel, who she says is just an “acquaintance.”
Apparently, Caroline Brooks called Chanel before the party to find out if she was invited. And when Caroline found out that Chanel wasn’t invited, she joked that Caroline Stanbury only wanted to invite people “important” to her. Chanel actually revealed this during a rooftop dinner that Nina Ali was hosting in the closing minutes of this week’s episode. Everyone was talking about the party and how fun it was, when Chanel asked if they could talk about something else — something she had experienced too. Everyone thought she was sleazy until she revealed Caroline Brooks told her that Caroline Stanbury didn’t think she was “important” enough to invite her over. Caroline Brooks, however, denied saying that. She said she was joking and never said Caroline Stanbury said such a thing. Caroline Brooks said that she jokingly insinuated that Chanel wasn’t “important” enough, and that was it.
But Caroline Stanbury didn’t really care. In fact, she shamelessly revealed that she, in fact, doesn’t like Chanel, and it’s true – she wasn’t “important” enough to invite. So while Caroline Brooks might have said it as a joke initially, Caroline Stanbury said it’s now a fact. Ouch!
