Ubah Hassan is someone who fled war-torn Somalia with her family, became a supermodel when people weren’t hiring black models, and ventured into the business of selling hot sauce in NYC. She definitely deserves to be on Real Housewives of New York City season 14.
But who is this real housewife’s husband and family? What’s her net worth? Find answers as this article proceeds.
Ubah Hassan On RHONY
Bravo’s brand-new cast for the rebooted Real Housewives of New York City franchise (set to premiere in 2023) is here. And our star, Ubah Hassan is one of them.
The cast was first announced at a Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen taping during BravoCon, where the ladies also surprised fans by walking on stage.
According to its executive producer Andy Cohen, Bravo (this season) was looking for a cast that better reflected New York City. It will follow “an all-new group of seven dynamic women who run in the same social circles, thriving in one of the most diverse and electric cities in the world. From fashion and real estate to philanthropy and social influence, these women have made their mark in NYC and will now share their lives as they juggle careers, family life, and jam-packed social calendars in the city that never sleeps.”
Guess the show will be as interesting as ever.
Also, it was rumored that the legacy version of RHONY was already fully cast (that included Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morgan), and deals were in the process of closing. However, when asked about the details, Dorinda played coy, “I swear to you, you know as much as we do. I promise you. I’ve heard more about the new girls [on the rebooted ‘RHONY’] than I have about ‘Legacy.’ Listen, if you hear something, call me! I’ll be at Blue Stone Manor waiting, decorating for Halloween.”
Joining Ubah for the 14th installment of RHONY were her co-stars — Sai De Silva, Erin Lichy, Jenna Lyons, Lizzy Savetsky, Jessel Taank, and Brynn Whitfield.
RHONY is produced by Shed Media with Shannon, Lauren Volonakis, and Glenda Cox serving as executive producers.
Ubah Hassan Husband
Ubah Hassan didn’t mention she had a husband. But she did talk about her dating life in an interview.
According to the star, she’s so tall that no men want to talk to her. “And I love that. I think, just don’t come near me. And I can’t dance if I’m not wearing heels,” she said. However, if you’re trying to approach the lady, she has one piece of advice for you “be a gentleman” — introduce yourself properly to everyone, don’t make small chat, rather get straight to the point (and drop ur name and number).
“Guys in America, they don’t know how to (approach a girl). Chasing a girl, for them — calling a girl, asking her out — is a form of weakness. Which is like the opposite. Only a man would go with that they want,” she added.
Now, talking about her past dating life, she seemed to have a boyfriend in 2021. He even helped her with her business — boxing the orders.
Back in 2014, the RHONY star was also rumored to be dating the music mogul Jason Flom, owner of Lava Record.

However, it wasn’t until she was photographed by Steven Meisel for the black issue of Italian Vogue that Ubah climbed the spotlight. In a time when people weren’t hiring black models, Ubah majorly change the tradition.
Thereafter, Uba ventured into the business of selling hot sauce, titled Ubah Hot. And fortunately, Oprah Winfrey loved it and added the sauce to her “Oprah’s Favorite Things” list.
“I felt like I had won the Oscar for small business entrepreneurs,” Ubah recalled the moment.
Naturally, the star then got flooded with orders and called all her friends to help her. “We were packing 36 to 40 boxes in minutes. If Elon Musk saw us in this warehouse and how fast and efficient we were working, he wouldn’t need to create robots,” she joked.
