Who Is Dana Wilkey, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Newest Addition?
Much like many of her fellow cast members, the newest lady to join The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Dana Wilkey, is a businesswoman and mother. Although not technically a housewife, she will be soon: Dana is engaged to John Flynn, who she will marry in 2012. The new RHoBH-er is mother to John Cayden (JC), who is nearly 2.
Dana also has two soon-to-be-step-children, Chloe, 22, and Conor, 18. An east coaster by birth, the new Housewife ended up in California for college. She graduated from the University of Southern California with honors.
As for business, Dana started the Adwil Agency, which is a product placement company. She’s the one responsible for making sure a specific brand of diapers was put on the monkey in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective Jr. (Or something like that, we didn’t see that particular genre-breaking film.) On the side, Dana plans $60,000 parties for 4-year-olds. Yep, she was the mastermind behind Kennedy’s less-than-successful tea party. It was her friendship with Taylor Armstrong that secured her a spot in Season 2.
She must be pretty good at what she does. According to her tweets, she owns a Lamborghini and her new house has its own movie theater and game room. Since she loves planning parties so much, we’re guessing we’ll get to see a lot of her new pad during some wild and crazy bashes.
According to Dana’s Facebook page, her interests include the following: “Collecting Barbies...sorry can't help it! Designing killer jewelry. Hiking Runyan Canyon. Throwing Parties! Sking. Jogging. Museums. Traveling to amaaaazzing places. Studying the Brain.” We’ll just assume “sking” is “skiing” and “studying the brain” is a recreational pursuit and not something she does in an underground, mad-scientist lab.
