DUBAI: “The Real Housewives of New York City” star Ubah Hassan stepped out at the Caesars Forum in Las Vegas for BravoCon 2023, the annual fan convention for all things Bravo TV, after she was spotted at various events in the city this week. Meanwhile, Taleen Marie was announced as the newest member of the “The Real Housewives of Dubai” iteration of the show.
“I’m so excited!” Ubah shared with BravoTV.com before her appearance, adding she has “not prepared … because I also want to be authentic. This is not my wedding. BravoCon is work for me. I’m meeting people who are supporting me and they love to watch our show so … I’m just gonna pull some stuff out of my closet. Maybe I might buy one or two things (for) a special occasion but really no … I tell you — I wake up like this (sic)!”
Ultimately, Hassan opted for a blue silk slip dress by Los Angeles-based label Simkhai. The label was founded by Jonathan Simkhai in 2010 after he graduated from New York’s Parsons School of Design and the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Meanwhile, it was revealed that a new housewife will join the second season of “The Real Housewives of Dubai” at BravoCon. Ahead of the screening of the first episode from Season 2 during the three-day event in Las Vegas, it was revealed that Taleen Marie is the newest member of the cast.
Marie will be joined by returning stars Sara Al-Madani, Chanel Ayan, Caroline Brooks, Lesa Milan and Caroline Stanbury.
A spot opened up after Nina Ali announced her departure from the series.
“It was an honor to be a part of the debut season of ‘The Real Housewives of Dubai,’ and to help Bravo bring this beloved franchise to the city I call home,” Ali shared on Instagram earlier this year. “I’m grateful to the network, Andy Cohen, and the team at Truly Original for welcoming me into this extended family and for embracing the diversity of riches Dubai has to offer.”
