Real Housewives of Raqqa about to blow up on Bravo
RAQQA, Syria — Bravo channel executive producer Andy Cohen debuted a sneak peek today of the latest installment to the Real Housewives series: "Real Housewives of Raqqa," set to premiere during Ramadan.
The reality television show provides an all-access pass to five lavish wives as they shop, dine, party, and let drama unfold on the streets and underneath their sheets that cover their entire bodies. Cohen originally stated there would be six housewives, but unfortunately Nasrin As'ad Ibrahim was killed by Kurdish fighters during the second episode.
“You’re going to be able to see these women like you never imagined,” said Cohen. “They really are the bomb, one even has a skincare line for burn victims of homemade explosives.”
While most of the women have given birth to multiple children, only one actually still has a child living with her. Dura, originally Canadian, fell in love with an ISIS fighter in 2011 on Chaturbate, a website where anyone can video chat with people across the world.
“Now that my second husband has died and I belong to Yasiif, I am finally able to pursue my musical career that I was promised eight years ago,” Dura said through the slit in her veil. “Soon I will be able to release my first single, “Don’t be late to detonate,” which should be a real banger,” she said.
Another wife, Allayatah Fawad, runs a successful hijab bedazzling business and is considering leaving her fourth husband for a German ISIS fighter that has lately taken an interest in her as evidenced by the nightly raping. The preview shows the feisty Fawad fighting with the other wives and screaming at another wife, Fattah, that her hijabs deserved to be featured in Fattah’s fashion blog.
Cohen even teased the cliffhanger finale, stating that Muthana, now 24, was a college student when she traveled to Syria over four years ago to join ISIS, eventually marrying three fighters and calling for the killing of Americans on Twitter. Now, she wants to return to Los Angeles for the reunion show.
“Let’s just say that some big names get involved, and I can’t say anything else,” Cohen said.
Season two is currently focusing on the ladies as they transition to internally displaced persons camps at the border of Iraq and Syria.
