Besides the pilot, the two Filipinos will be spotted across the whole season

MANILA, Philippines – Reality show The Real Housewives of Dubai, the latest addition to the Real Housewives franchise, premiered on Thursday, June 2, and two successful Filipinos were featured as recurring cast members: Dubai-based fashion designer and creative director of Amato Couture Furne One, and Dubai socialite, entrepreneur, and magazine publisher Josh Yugen.

One and Yugen were seen in the pilot episode of the show together with one of the six housewives, Chanel Ayan.

In one of the scenes, Yugen thought Chanel Ayan had a nose job, which Chanel immediately responded to with humor: “You think in my village I can afford a nose job, we don’t even have a doctor in the village.”

One is Ayan’s official fashion designer for the show photo shoot while Yugen is the main director and producer. The photos will be published in Yugen’s Dubai-based luxury fashion and travel magazine, which previously featured Filipino celebrities such as Alden Richards, Pia Wurtzbach, Catriona Gray, Lovi Poe, and P-Pop groups Bini and BGYO.
