A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
It focuses on the material wealth and status of a small group of people living in Dubai. Relationships including marriage, friendships, and enemies are themes.
Positive Role Models
While some of the women represent themselves as accomplished individuals, others act like entitled socialites. Their partners are often shown acting indifferently to their behavior, while others are annoyed. D.J. Bliss and his partner are proud of having a good relationship with his daughters.
The cast is mostly female. It is made up of Middle Eastern individuals from Iraq, Saudi Arabia, India, Lebanon, and Kuwait, some of who were born or grew up in the U.S., the United Kingdom, and Australia. One cast member is Mexican-American.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Dubai Bling is a reality series (presented in both English and Arabic with subtitles) about a group of extremely wealthy people living in Dubai. There's lots of gossip and arguing, strong curse words, and occasionally things get thrown and broken during arguments. Romantic relationships, marriage, divorce, and death are themes. There's also drinking visible during meals and social functions. High-end logos like Porsche, Chanel, Versace, and others are frequently visible, and social media platforms like Instagram are referenced.
Is It Any Good?
This obnoxious reality series features a group of smart, intelligent, and professional individuals showing off their extraordinary material wealth. While there are some moments that highlight what some of the cast members' jobs are like, most of the series revolves around shopping, dinners, parties, and other events. It also revolves around their interpersonal relationships, which leads to lots of gossip, especially among the women. But while Dubai Bling is unscripted, a lot of it feels staged in order to increase the drama. Some may enjoy the series as an opulent guilty pleasure, but otherwise there's just not much here.
