The PJ Tatler

Real Muslim Housewives of Dearborn?

TLC is said to be gearing up for a big new show, about Muslim housewives in America. In Dearborn, MI, actually.

The programme – called ‘All American Muslim’ – will follow five Muslim families in Dearborn, Michigan hoping to expose the ‘misconceptions and conflicts’ they face ‘outside and within’ their own community’.

Dearborn has one of America’s largest Muslim populations and has the largest mosque in North America.

The series – which will be released in November – is set to feature a range of characters including a set of sisters one of whom wears a headscarf while the other sports piercings and tattoos and is married to an Irish Catholic Islamic convert.

Other characters include: ‘Recently married, Nadar and Nawal,’ who are, ‘having their first baby and trying to find the balance between their traditional Muslim roots and American culture.

Here are a couple of sisters who won’t be on the show. And here’s an incident in Dearborh that’s unlikely to get any airtime.
