The former reality star praised life in Dubai for allowing her to show off her immense wealth without any embarrassment – while in the UK ‘billionaire dress in Marks & Spencer’
He said, ‘In Britain we are taught that if you have money, you should not show it.’ ‘You are there at seven to turn off your lights and take a shower with your family. Here you turn on all your lights and turn on all your jewelery in one go.
‘Any British billionaire dressed as Marks & Spencer, that’s what we do. Here, they wear Dolce & Gabbana and so do their kids.
‘They are doing something right that the rest of the world hasn’t.’

Caroline donned two wedding dresses as she hosted a lavish wedding to celebrate her wedding to Sergio Carralo in Dubai
The couple originally married on Thursday, November 11 on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, but celebrated with friends and family at Raffles The Palm Dubai in Dubai in December last year.
The pair were married after rumors swirled that Stanbury might be joining the cast of Bravo’s upcoming series The Real Housewives of Dubai – which was confirmed by executive producer Andy Cohen last month.
There are currently 15 international series of hit shows, including Real Housewives of Nairobi, Durban and Cheshire, produced by overseas networks, but this will be the first series produced by the Bravo team behind the US programs.
The focus will be on “a group of women navigating their relationships, careers and extremely lavish and ultra-wealthy lifestyles in the UAE”, but it has yet to be announced who the cast will be.
