Where and when did the 'RHODubai' Season 1 reunion film?

RHODubai stars Chanel Ayan, Lesa Milan, Nina Ali, Sara Al Madani, Caroline Brooks, and Caroline Stanbury, didn't actually stay in Dubai to tape the Season 1 reunion.

Instead, the ladies traveled to New York City to sit with Andy Cohen to discuss the most compelling parts of the freshman season. The cast members, per Today, glammed up and dressed to the nines for the taping on Thursday, July 28.

Andy, who hosts all of the Real Housewives reunions (plus the gatherings for other top programs like Summer House, Married to Medicine, and Southern Charm) also confirmed that the RHODubai conclusion filmed on that date via his Instagram stories — when he shared that his ride to the taping hadn't actually shown up.

"When your car doesn't show up for the reunion," he wrote in the caption of a selfie he took while in a taxi on one Instagram story.

The dad of two later shared that he had, thankfully, made it to the set when he posted a photo from his hair and makeup seat. He later confirmed that he was with the RHODubai personalities when he added a photo with question cards featuring the name of the show.
