Caroline Stanbury had to answer for her husband, Sergio Carrallo, after his old “racist” tweet came up at the “Real Housewives of Dubai” reunion Wednesday.
“He apologized to whoever he thought he should,” Stanbury, 46, said after explaining that Carrallo, 27, was not prepared for his social media posts to be thrust into the “public eye” on the Bravo reality show.
“Sergio is the least racist person,” she clarified.
The tweet in question saw Carrallo, who is Spanish, use the N-word in 2016.
During the reunion, host Andy Cohen asked Stanbury’s co-star and close friend Caroline Brooks, who is black, what she thought of the situation.
“That morning when I saw it, when it surfaced, Caroline called me first — furious, like pissed — and then I got on the phone with him because he was really upset,” Brooks, 37, responded.
Brooks shared that she felt “indifferent” because the N-word is always “unacceptable” but she still loves Stanbury and Carrallo.
“Sergio then explained to me he’s never even heard that word before,” Brooks shared. “I explained to him how problematic that is — as did Caroline, she told him — and I think he got a good enough lashing from everybody around him for that. He was very apologetic. He didn’t apologize publicly, but he was apologetic.”
Fellow “RHODubai” star Sara Al Madani, meanwhile, revealed that she hired a “tech team,” which discovered that the tweet “wasn’t attached” to Carrallo’s Instagram.
“Somebody used his Twitter to promote an R&B nightclub because he was famous back then. He said someone else wrote it to promote it,” Al Madani said.
Best friends Chanel Ayan and Lesa Milan seemed less than satisfied with the conversation, however, as they claimed Stanbury never addressed it with them or as a group.
Stanbury and Carrallo tied the knot in a lavish December 2021 ceremony, which was filmed for the show, at the Palm resort in Dubai. The couple had to fly to Mauritius in East Africa to legally marry three weeks prior to the celebration.
Part 2 of the “Real Housewives of Dubai” reunion airs Wednesday, Sept. 7, at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
