RHODubai is in its sophomore season, and with Nina Ali not returning to the show, a new housewife joined their ranks. In addition to Chanel, Caroline Stanbury, Lesa Milan, Caroline Brooks, and Sara Al Madani have all returned for Season 2 of the series. They are also joined by newbie Taleen Marie, another expat who has been in there for a decade or so. Dubai is known for its affluent citizens, and all of these housewives fall into that category. So, what is Chanel Ayan's net worth?

Chanel Ayan is trying new things, and that includes being on 'The Traitors.'

Peacock recently announced the Season 3 cast for their hit reality competition series The Traitors, and Chanel was one of the 21 names listed. Given her ability to see through people's nonsense, if she is a Faithful, she should have no problems sniffing out a Traitor. However, if she is chosen to be one of the Traitors, she could make a killing, figuratively speaking. The series gained immense popularity during the second season thanks to the Bravolebrities in the cast, and hopefully, Chanel will be able to keep that energy going.

What's going on with former besties Chanel and Lesa Milan?

During the first season, viewers saw the deep friendship she shared with Lesa Milan. They were quite literally a dynamic duo, but even viewers began noticing that Lesa and Chanel were missing from their respective social media posts. During BravoCon 2023, these suspicions were somewhat confirmed, as Lesa hinted that all was not well in the sisterhood. It still seems to be the case now, unfortunately. Hopefully there will be some reconciliation before or during the reunion.
