This week's Season 4 premiere of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills brought us our first real appearance on the show by sexy real estate agent Jonathan Ruiz, who was dating Brandi Glanville when the episode was filmed. So who is this guy, and are they still dating?
Jonathan — whom Brandi affectionately calls "J.R." in the episode — currently is a real estate agent at The Agency, which is owned by Kyle Richards' husband Mauricio Umansky. In fact, Brandi met Jonathan through Mauricio, and she flirted with Jonathan at Kyle's White Party in 2012.
Jonathan grew up in L.A. and attended UCLA. After college, he worked in the film industry for a long time. He spent ten years as a talent agent at Hollywood's top agency, CAA, where he represented such high-profile clients as Penelope Cruz, John C. Reilly, and Jessica Alba.
After leaving CAA, he worked as the vice president of production for two different movie studios, overseeing various stages of film production. Now, he works as a real estate agent at The Agency, which specializes in high-end luxury properties in L.A.
So what is the current status of Brandi and Jonathan? Well, the two started dating in the spring of 2012 before splitting up in December 2012. However, they got back together earlier this year and were on-and-off until they parted ways again in September 2013, seemingly for good. In fact, she appeared to slam him on Twitter last week. But with these two, you never know when things might change!
If you're curious to see more of Brandi and Jonathan, you're in luck, as their turbulent romance is said to be a major storyline throughout Season 4. We can't wait to watch!
