Former RHOBH Star Dana Wilkey Indicted On Fraud Charges!

Joining the likes of Joe and Teresa Giudice, as well as Apollo Nida, former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Dana Wilkey has been indicted on federal fraud charges. Apparently the apple doesn’t fall far from the Bravo tree, does it? What did Dana do to get the FBI involved? Read on for more details!

According to the FBI’s website, Dana — along with two others — was charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud, and aiding and abetting. Thankfully the 41-year-old former reality star isn’t being indicted on providing false statements to government agents like the other two, but things still don’t sound too good.

The feds state that Dana — along with insurance company Blue Shield of California employees Skylar and Lissa Phoenix — entered into a “fraudulent marketing contract” between Dana’s company, Adwil Agency, and Blue Shield. This contract “included the regular payment of undisclosed kickbacks from Wilkey to Skylar Phoenix, Lissa Phoenix, and Rodeo Pink, a shell corporation held by and for the benefit of Skylar Phoenix.”

Between February 2006 and February 2012, Dana made payments, from Adwil Agency’s accounts, directly to Lissa Phoenix, Skylar Phoenix, and Rodeo Pink totaling approximately $360,000 payed via 87 different checks.

According to the FBI, Dana was arrested at her home in Miami and appeared in federal court on June 19. She, as well as Skylar and Lissa Phoenix, were released on bond set at $250,000 each. If things go poorly for Dana, she might have to sell all of the $25,000 sunglasses she owns — and she may soon find out that orange definitely isn’t the new black.
