PHOTO Who is Dana Wilkey’s fiance? Meet John Flynn, “serial entrepreneur”

Dana Wilkey of The Real Hosuewives of Beverly Hills on Bravo

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills added two new ladies to their roster for the show’s sophomore season, and although they are technically referred to as “friends of the housewives” on, it’s becoming evident only a few episodes in that they will be playing a MAJOR role in the drama this season!

We already had a chance to meet Brandi Glanville, the smokin’ hot model ex of LeAnn Rimes’ new hubby Eddie Cibrian, and this week we got to officially meet Dana Wilkey, a 37-year-old event planner and mother of one who apparently has no qualms about flaunting her wealth!

“See these sunglasses? 25,000 dollars.”

When we meet Dana she greets Kyle Richards and Taylor Armstrong at her front door wearing an exploding cleavage wedding dress and diamond studded tiara. She insincerely apologizes for her over-the-top appearance before explaining that she had a meeting to discuss her future wedding plans that (conveniently) went over on time.

Of course she shows her new cast mates all the expensive jewelry she has laid out to choose from and explains that she and her fiance will be getting married in a castle just outside of Paris in 2012 before inviting them to take a seat in the other room until she finishes up.

So, who’s the lucky guy soon to be burdened with Dana Wilkey’s expensive tastes? His name is John Flynn and he is, as Dana says, a “serial entrepreneur.” The two have been something of an item since at least 2007 when they were photographed together at the Sundance Film Festival premiere dinner party for the film Slipstream. And the two were photographed together again at Sundance the next year, this time at the American Film Market Bold Films party.

Birth announcement for Dana Wilkey and John Flynn's son John Cayde Flynn JCJohn Flynn is in his mid-forties and shares a child with Dana – son (and Thai speaking kid genius) John Cayden Flynn. I managed to track down his birth announcement from the Los Angeles Times – that’s it there on the right.

Flynn’s resume includes building four 1,000 employee companies in four different industries, being a producer, and writing a financial bog at Here is a summary of how he describes himself on the site:

43-year-old John Flynn has been a principal investor in four companies in four different industries: environmental services, computer services, specialty financial services and transportation and logistics services. His latest investment has been in a pharmaceutical delivery company, Nanoviricides (NNVC.) Flynn also has held senior management positions including CFO of Express-One, Chairman and co-founder of Remote Lojix (from January 1994 – November 1998, when it sold to Avtel Communications. He also founded DAC Environmental Services, Inc.

Flynn has also successfully worked in business consulting, helping Saliva Diagnotics restructure $3 million of debt in order to avoid interrupted operation. He’s been the president of Corporate Computing, Inc., and has been a managing member of Aspen Rhodes Capital Corporation since it’s inception 15 years ago. Aspen Rhodes provides merger, financing, and strategic consulting to small and mid-sized companies including Gries Investment Fund, Saddle Point Capital, Words, Inc., Westbury Metals Group,, bio-Reference Labs,, US Automotive, Bio Reference Laboratories, Riviera Finance, Segmentz, Inc., Chancellor Leasing Corporation, Cyber Defense, E-Green Technologies, RT Industries and Private Retreats.

So there you go! THAT is Dana Wilkey’s fiance. Being a gossip blogger by trade I feel I should point out there are rumors swirling online that Dana and John have split up, but there has been no evidence as yet to support those rumors. Could it be that we will see their break-up play out on this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?

    I like Dana. I think people misunderstand her, she just has one of those over-the-top personalities.

  • LisaM

    He sounds like a shyster and Brandi hot??? I just threw up.

    • Pickle8182

      I just left this page but had to come back because I SO agree with your comment. She’s a classless crude skank and even if she was decent looking, her vile mouth and behavior far overshadow it and make her an ugly creature.

  • Piper

    Dana,sorry not a fan !.!. Anybody who brag’s like she does is TACKY..

    • Katzmeow

      She’s pretty, but I have to agree the bragging is tacky!

  • sunnie

    Another scary, intense russell look-alike dude…. i don’t see good things ahead. glad i don’t watch this show anymore…too creepy for me.

  • Anonymous

    They didn’t just split up. They were never even engaged. She lied to get on the show. Watch.

  • Anne

    I really do like Dana too!~~~ It was tres tacky about the glasses BUT she seems really nice!

  • Anonymous

    The dress in this picture was a potential wedding dress. So she wore that dress to her cousin’s wedding?? wtf

  • Allison Dubois

    This stuck up c*u*n*t is not only fat but also mean. She got her head so far up the Richards bitches asses, she should be known as shit head. BTW, I can tell you when she is going to die.

    • Anne Marie

      Lol, Allison you are very entertaining. I think you need your own reality show.

    • Bonnie

      Well said Allison!!1

    • Cd Mann

      OMG! such a woman hater!!!

  • Denise

    She looks like she aged 10 years in just 3 years (from the melon dress photos in 2008 to the current photos from the show above). She looks like she could be the mother of the girl in the melon dress. I can’t even believe she’s the same person.

    If I had to guess, I’d say that this marriage will never happpen. Of course I don’t know these people at all, but since reality shows have a way of ruining marriages, I can’t imagine it’ll be a good thing for an engagement either. Also, the guy had no interest in marrying her when she turned up pregnant with his child, so why would he bother marrying her now?

    • Peggy Einsla

      I think that reality shows don’t necessarily break up relationships, but accelerate it along.

  • Selena

    Dana’s furniture is a fugly collection of Salvation Army finds

  • Floozy

    That house of hers could be a rental just like the skank’s on Big Rich Texas. Her desserts for her desserts party looked cool but all those old cadavers were not interested in imbibing. They will all look good for a “Day of the Dead” Party and they can come as themselves, especially, Taylor. She looks ike a stick with a skull stuck on top of it. This train wreck is starting to look more and more like a Disney Channel teenage stupid sitcom. “Hannah Montana” reruns.

  • princess

    I get a kick out of Dana. She has it, she flauntsit, okay , a little tacky, but she’s not hurting anyone. BUT WHAT’S WITH HER FIANCES HEAD. IT’S HUGE. He looks gargantuan next to her. Anyone else out there notice that?

  • Diane

    She brags so much it’s a turn off.

  • Housewifelover

    She is TrailorTrashFishLip’s friend…enough said…CONS

  • Cathy

    damn he’s ugly

    • Sara

      Ugly??? The one who is ugly is adriene maloof. Her face is way too wide for her skinny unnatural nose, lips and chin!

  • iknowitall

    What an a$$-kisser. I don’t believe she is rich.

  • http://yahoo Sunny Sand

    Give her a break, she obviously did not come from money, because people with money do not throw names. He is not very handsome. I look forward to their wedding in the castle. Hope it comes out on their show. Please stop kissing up to the Richards sisters and please help help Kim she is sooooooooooooo messed up!!!! Kyle is so in denial.

    The name dropping, price popping, child boasting, ass kissing behavior make Pam more annoying than a gnat. They also make her extremely pathetic. She tries to hard and then becomes trying to the viewer. Her man needs some glasses to help correct his crossed-eyes. I wonder if he sees 2 of her.

  • joanne says:

    dana should take a little class from the RHOBH when it comes to dropping prices out her mouth every time she buys something who cares, the only way you got your money is from marrying someone with money, try earning it yourself and stop spreading your legs to get it, thats the only way you became a RHOBH your future husband had to pay someon off because you certainly are no RHW start acting classy and not trashie

  • antoine craven

    Dana is my friend and she only dropping names for comic relief. She is really not like that, trust me.

  • lisa

    When she bragged about 20,000 dollar glasses, it made me sick to think of how shallow she is and GOD help the man that is with her.
