And there’s a new housewife in town…

If you’re a fan of not-so-reality reality TV, then you’re going to eat this one right up. The second installment of The Real Housewives of Dubai is back, and the first episode drops this weekend.

The smash hit show, streaming on Bravo TV and OSN+, will return from Sunday June 2. And the most exciting bit? A new housewife is joining the glamorous gang.

Everything we know about Taleen Marie, the newest housewife

The newest member of the tribe is Taleen Marie, mother-of-two and entrepreneur, replacing Nina Ali, who announced her departure from the show after the end of the first season

Taleen has dabbled in music and singing in the past, opening for none-other-than Christina Aguilera during her Dubai International Tour. She’s also sung exclusively at The White House and for Pope John Paul II (niche). Besides her musical escapades, Taleen is a serial entrepreneur, and has founded multiple businesses, including beauty brand Ctzn Cosmetics and Tal Fitness, a digital fitness platform.

So, where might she fit into the Dubai scene, you might wonder.

Taleen’s husband, Rafael Khanoyan, who she wed in 2014, is the CEO of Al Ryum Group of Companies, which was responsible for the designing and building of parks in Abu Dhabi during the 1990s. Since then, they’ve been involved with the landscaping of many iconic buildings, structures, and areas across the UAE including Louvre Abu Dhabi, Emirates Palace Hotel, and Meydan Hotel and Racetrack.
