After starring in Ladies of London, Caroline Stanbury is back on reality TV again with The Real Housewives of Dubai (RHODubai). Her background made her one of the most anticipated stars to appear in the new series. Outside of the show, she’s a stylist, podcaster, and entrepreneur. As of 2023, Caroline Stanbury has a net worth of $30 million.
On April 28, 1976, Caroline was born to fashion executives Anthony and Elizabeth Stanbury. She grew up in London with three other siblings named Victoria, Edward, and Alexander.
Her father is the former managing director of a fashion group called Jaeger, while her mother is the owner and primary designer of a knitwear brand. Thanks to her mother, Caroline was exposed to fashion and entertainment at a young age.
Both of her parents were very supportive of everything she did growing up. As for education, the London-born star is a graduate of Westonbirt School and also attended King’s College London.
Stanbury started out as a stylist but later set up her company, Gift Library. The business sold luxury gifts, ranging from cashmere dog sweaters to keychains. Gift Library closed down and its domain name was acquired by Amaro.com, a competitor.
On the back of her fame on reality TV, she became an influencer and brand ambassador. The savvy entrepreneur has collaborated with brands including CosmeSurge, Berkeley Assets, and Al Barari.
In 2014, Caroline Stanbury was invited to join the cast of Ladies of London. She became a popular personality in the reality series, appearing in all three seasons. The show was canceled by Bravo in 2017 as the viewing figures were falling.
After Ladies of London, Caroline still got some other TV work but craved more spotlight. She was featured on Face to Face with David, This Morning, and Watch What Happens. In 2020, she started the “Divorced Not Dead” podcast which is highly rated on Apple podcast.
She didn’t have a regular TV show until The Real Housewives of Dubai started filming at the end of 2021. Caroline came back to Bravo for a second time, declaring that she was a better person now.
Her main goal is to showcase how empowered women do things in a new environment like Dubai, United Arab Emirates. This is part of the reason why reality TV fans were excited to see her when RHODubai premiered in 2022.
Net Worth and Earnings
In Ladies of London, the stars were paid an average of $10,000 for every episode. However, Caroline’s earnings on RHODubai haven’t been disclosed yet as the first series ended in September 2022. More than likely, the British blonde is one of the highest-paid.
Even so, Stanbury’s business and online ventures are enough to give her an estimated net worth of $30 million, making her the richest cast member on The Real Housewives of Dubai.
Caroline Stanbury married Cem Habib in 2004, but their relationship ended in 2019. They have three children together. Habib is a banker and is reportedly worth $50 million. Through divorcing Habib, Stanbury could have received a hefty divorce settlement.
Now, she is married to Sergio Carrallo, a former football player for Real Madrid FC. Carrallo is wealthy in his own right and has a net worth of $5 million. In 2021, they had a lavish wedding at Raffles The Palm Dubai and currently live in a luxury home in Dubai.
