Brace yourselves, ‘The Queen’ is back!

Last month, all hell broke loose when Emirati singer Ahlam's reality TV show "The Queen" aired on Dubai TV.
Anyone who watched the program described it as "degrading to human beings and a form of finding personal slaves for the singer."
"In the first episode, the 47-year-old asks contestants, who come from across the Arab world, how much they love her and if they are willing to do everything she asks of them," wrote The Daily Mail.
Following the online backlash, Dubai TV immediately dethroned Ahlam and pulled her show off the air, after just ONE episode.
Ahlam - who refers to herself as "Queen Ahlam" - later claimed that the show wasn't her idea (contrary to statements she had made before its launch), adding that she was "acting" and doing whatever the show's producers asked her to.
But why are we talking about the self-loving Diva's failed show now? Well, because, and we kid you not, Dubai TV is bringing it back.
You'd think the wannabe-royal would have announced the big comeback herself, but, oddly enough, Jordanian MBC TV host Ola al Fares did the honors on her personal Twitter account.
Ahlam retweeted Ola's tweet on Wednesday, confirming that this is really happening.
Social media users were split between #TeamAhlam and #TeamHateAhlam upon hearing the news, with the majority of them being against it.
