Where Are They Now: RHOBH's Dana Wilkey

After appearing on RHOBH, the party planner landed a new millionaire.

Whenever one of our Real Housewives leaves a franchise, she rarely goes alone: The members of her entourage, who viewers have grown to know and love, also exited. Each week, we'll be looking into the lives of one of these familiar faces. Today, it's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills guest star Dana Wilkey.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Bravo on Wednesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

She was the event planner behind the epic $60,000 tea party that Taylor Armstrong threw for her 4-year-old daughter Kennedy on the first season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Dana Wilkey—the friend of the Housewives (and nemesis of Brandi Glanville)—will also be remembered for flaunting her $25,000 sunglasses—a gift from her then-fiance John Flynn, the father of her toddler son—on the show in 2011.

So what has she been doing since her time on the show? Dana and John's engagement went south. But in 2012, she found happiness again with millionaire Irish businessman Philip Marley (she's called the relationship "true love") and briefly reappeared on RHOBH last year—where she sparred with Taylor and declared, "I drink a lot, and I’m okay with it. And I f--k a lot, and I’m okay with it"—but bigger drama was brewing.

In June 2014, the FBI announced that Dana had been indicted on six charges of fraud by a federal grand jury. If convicted, she faces a maximum of 20 years in prison for each count. Though she has posted a $25,000 bond, according to Radar, Dana has asked the judge in her case to return the money, citing her having to take care of her son and elderly grandmother. (Dana has not yet entered a plea.)

Dana is keeping up a brave face, however. She recently took a trip to a Disney theme park with her son and shared adorable photos of the two online. And though she's remembered as a friend of the Bravo Housewives, she often spends time watching her other favorite network, HGTV: "Omg i'm addicted to #lovehgtv," she tweeted last month, "I'm yelling at my TV #listitbitch lol."
