DUBAI: Anger has swept across the UAE over the new series `Real Housewives of Dubai’.
Emirati social media influencer Majid Alamry posted a video hitting out at `Real Housewives of Dubai’, which is set to premiere on June 1.
Alamry said that the reality TV show does not represent housewives in the UAE.
The three-minute clip, set in the 11th city in the franchise, offers a glimpse of the six cast members — Caroline Stanbury, Chanel Ayan, Caroline Brooks, Sara Al-Madani, Lesa Milan, and Nina Ali — at luxurious dinners and lunches, fashion shows, vacations, and a wedding.
“From the trailer, (there are) women wearing bikinis on beaches, using the nastiest language you can ever think of and they are representing themselves as gold diggers, trying their best to get money from rich men,” he said in a short Instagram video.
“Now, my wife is a housewife, she does not dress like that in public. She does not speak in that manner, and she has achieved a lot in her life,” he said. “The housewives of my country are our mothers, our sisters (and) our daughters. They are the backbone in giving our children the proper upbringing.”
“Yes, we are a tolerant country, but that does not mean that others can walk all over our morals and values,” Alamry said. “That series does not represent the real housewives of Dubai.”
