So a certain hotel heiress has landed in Dubai to shoot the third season of a certain show. The local papers said (because the news was on front page and hence, hard to miss) that she was given a very warm and VIP welcome.
I was searching online for something related to Dubai, and came across this interview. Since I live in Dubai, this particular interview of hers caught my attention. Curious, I watched the interview. I’ve typed the segment of the interview that pertained to Dubai, sparing you the agony of watching the entire video clip.
Host: And you’re gonna be doing this show, which I find unbelievable, in where…what country?
Heiress *without even blinking* : Dubai
Host: But they don’t allow … really… they only allow your eyes to be shown on television, isn’t that how it works over there?
Heiress: They’re very strange.
Host: You’ll look like a ninja on their channel.
Heiress *giggles*: Yeah! You know, I don’t … the rules are crazy out there. They are very, very strict with everything.
Host: Are you even allowed in Dubai?
Heiress *giggles more* : Yes. I’m gonna be seen rocking my sunglasses when I’m out there.
Host: Oh no, because the sunglasses … that’s the only area you’re allowed to have showing.
Heiress: I know!
Host: So you don’t wanna put sunglasses on, or really, you can send anyone to do that show for you, you know.
Heiress: Actually in Dubai, they’re a little more lenient than everywhere else. Like, obviously, I won’t wear something like this *looks down at her tiny black dress*.
Host: You wouldn’t?
Host: What … do you have to wear turtlenecks over there, or what?
Heiress: Like, burqas?
Host *looking surprised* : Really?!
Heiress: But maybe I’ll do my own PH burqa line.
Host *laughs* : Oh that would be great! That’s the best idea ever, by the way.
Heiress: See-through burqas.
Host: A PH burqa, that really could change things in the Middle East!
Heiress: They really could.
Host: Well, I hope it goes well in Dubai. They chop like your heads off and stuff if you don’t behave over there.
Heiress: I’m gonna behave very well.
Host: Keep your hands in your burqa at all times.
Heiress: I will.
I didn’t make that up.
The local paper mentioned that she had a great time at the Palm Atlantis in a leopard-print swimsuit last Thursday.
Dubai could’ve invited Mickey Mouse instead.
