Since the first look was released May 17, a collection of 12 human rights groups sent letters to Bravo, its parent company Universal and Truly Productions which makes the Real Housewives shows, expressing their concern.

‘By setting the Real Housewives franchise inside Dubai, you are helping the UAE dictatorship hide its male rulers’ misogyny, legalized homophobia and mass violence against women.’

‘And while the show is really meant to entertain, what I also hope is that maybe we can showcase some of the stuff that’s going on there that is politically incorrect, and educate people about that.’
