The departure of Heather Dubrow from The Real Housewives of Orange County marked an end of an era. But when a housewife goes, it usually means fans get one or two new ones. To replace Heather, Bravo brought back Lydia McLaughlin from Season 8 and a brand new face, Peggy Sulahian. So who is this Peggy woman? Is she #TeamTamra or #TeamVicki? And what's Peggy Sulahian's husband's net worth? Because you know these women like to bicker about how their families have worked for their wealth.
Viewers will likely get answers to all of their burning questions about Sulahian's personality and whether she gets along with Shannon or not as the season unfolds. But we do know that Peggy Sulahian's husband, Diko, is a car mogul. Both Peggy and Diko keep a low profile on the internet, but some sleuthing shows Diko is likely worth around $6 million as of this year, according to What Net Worth, which may or not be totally reliable.
Diko made his money by starting his own company around 23 years ago. WTW. Corp./Giovanna Wheels custom fits cars, so the next time you buy a Ferrari, you can take it Santa Fe Springs, CA and pimp your ride.
Diko's also the president of Wholesale Tire and Wheel, a parent company of GFG Forged Modular Wheels. Basically, the man knows all about outfitting cars like Rolls Royces, Lamborghini's, and Mercedes-Benz's with good tires and rims. Given Vicki's penchant for buying a new car every few months, she and Peggy will likely make fast friends.
Diki is not all about business though. He told Highline Autos in 2012 that he names all of his wheel designs after his kids. He said:
Building a solid foundation for my family is what it’s all about for me, and securing my children’s futures. So, 15 years ago my first daughter was being born at the same time as WTW, and I thought, 'What better way to express what WTW is all about than to name the designs after my kids?' I guess you could say this is how I show my love to my children. After all, who am I doing all of this for?
Peggy, too, once had a wheel named after her called, "Peggs," which is his nickname for her. It was a best seller but they eventually retired it.
With their love of luxury, cars, and each other, the Sulahians are going to be a very welcome addition to The Real Housewives of Orange County this year.
