Peggy Sulahian, the latest addition to the upcoming Season 12 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, has already made headlines for becoming the 100th Housewife in the franchise's history. While I'm confident her presence will shake up the ladies' dynamic and, inevitably, bring the drama, pre-season speculation is all part of the ride. There's some information out there about the woman herself, but who is Peggy Sulahian's husband Diko? The cornerstone of what the Housewives are all about is following the lives of the incredibly wealthy, and the Sulahians are no exception.
Per her official cast profile on Bravo's website, Peggy is Armenian and lives a "life of luxury" in "the exclusive Crystal Cove community" with her husband and their children. Peggy is most active on her Instagram account, where she can typically be found posting a lot of pictures of cars. So what exactly does she do to maintain her luxurious lifestyle? Well, that’s where the cars come in. It all makes sense when you realize that Diko is a "custom wheel tycoon," and while I don't know exactly what the means, it clearly has something to do with the automotive industry.
Diko owns WTW Corp./Giovanna Wheels, a company located in Santa Fe Springs, CA that focuses on custom fitting vehicles for aftermarket wheels. According to an interview he did with Lamborghini Club America, Diko is also the President of Wholesale Tire and Wheel, the parent company of GFG Forged Modular Wheels. Apparently, once the one of the tough decisions he makes each day is which car to drive to work. (Super relatable.)
The power couple, who married back in 1995, have three children, Giovanna and Gianelle (ages 19 and 17, respectively), and a 9-year-old son, Koko. If Peggy’s social media posts are anything to go off of, the Sulahians are always spending time together, and Diko even made his business a family affair by naming a wheel line after each of his children.
Diko also has an active Instagram account of his own, where he also posts a lot about his wife, his kids, and of course, his cars. He’s at the level where he can pull off casually posting a picture of his kids posing with Justin Bieber and later disclose in the comments that his son “did not want to take a pic with [Bieber].”
Diko and Peggy Sulahian are an extravagant couple, but they also seem to be pretty grounded and genuine when it comes to their bond as a family. And when we’re talking about The Real Housewives of OC, that really is all we can ask for.
