Dripping in opulence and gold, The Real Housewives of Dubai is set to debut on Wednesday, June 1, at 9 pm ET/PT on Bravo. With the premiere nearing, an official first look of the series dropped and people were shocked to spot a certain former housewife. So who was the woman that crashed The Real Housewives of Dubai trailer? 

It’s none other than the popular Georgia peach Phaedra Parks.

Those that watched The Real Housewives of Atlanta will remember Parks as the famed attorney and mother of two who threw out some of the most memorable zingers in the show’s history. After six seasons on the Atlanta-based franchise, she saddened many fans by exiting the reality series following a heated rivalry with Kandi Burrus that spun out of control. 

Although Parks is already slated to star in the upcoming season of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, viewers were not expecting to see her pop up in a new city with a whole new cast of Bravo rookies. 

While the number of episodes Parks will be featured in is not known, in the clip below she can be heard saying, "Give me the tea honey. I’m very thirsty today."

Outside of the appearance of the RHOA vet, we have to say, the women on the Dubai cast definitely have a "watchable" quality about them. In all honesty, the tone of the series is reminiscent of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills seasons 1 and 2.
