'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'

Star and Fiance

Sued for Fraud

11/14/2011 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dana Wilkey and fiance
You're not truly a member of "The Real Housewives" family until you've been sued over a business deal gone wrong -- so congratulations, Dana Wilkey ... you're officially one of the gals now!

Wilkey, who joined the Beverly Hills gals in season 2, is being sued along with her fiancé, John Flynn, for allegedly defrauding an investor out of $53,000. 

According to the lawsuit, filed this week in L.A. Superior Court, Mary Painter claims she invested money in 2008 with Wilkey, Flynn and another man ... who claimed she would get at least a 10% return on her investment. It's unclear from the lawsuit what exactly Painter was investing in.

Painter says she tried several times to pull her money out over the past two years ... but so far, she has not received a dime back. 

She's suing for breach of contract and fraudulent misrepresentation, among other things, and is asking for her money back ... plus damages. 

Flynn tells TMZ, "There is no fraud. Dana Wilkey is not a properly named defendant, and we expect to continue to negotiate and gain dismissal of this lawsuit as quick as possible."

So this bitch is not only obnoxious and gross but a fraud? Noooooooooo! Not on the Fake Ho's Of Wherever show. You knew she was new money as soon as she said "these sunglasses are $25,000" and then you knew she was really broke when you looked in big huge house and it was empty. No furniture and when the "caterer" had a party there was no food. Fake bitches! Where does that homo Andy find these people?

Every time I see this chick on RHOB, I want to punch her in the face. Camille called b.s. on her the minute she started bragging about her 25k glasses at Adrienne freaking Maloof's house of all places. Seems like they plant these people in the show, rent them a nice house and car, and give them $100k as spending money to act like they have it. These are supposed to be "real" housewives of Beverly Hills, and none of them except for Adrienne and Lisa are real housewives of Beverly Hills. Kyle lives in Brentwood, Camille lives in Malibu and hasn't been a housewife for over a year, Taylor is broke as f*#k and not a housewife anymore, and Brandi is not a f*#ki#g housewife last time I checked! The only thing these women seem to have in common are hardcore drug addictions, and not just "prescription pill" addictions their PR people makeup when they start acting erratic and slurring their words.

She spent $25,000.00 of effing sunglasses. How much is that 53,000 - minues 25,000 = DUMBASS BITCH. She could feed a whole facility of animals on what she spent on those stupid sunglasses. More money then class or s"cent's. Plus she sounds slow and very very needy of others approval. sad...so sad to have money and no happiness!! I have both..yep call me a Bitch but I spend mine wisely not like an idiot. I have feed a facility of animals along with volunteered time. The happiness from that was PRICELESS!!!

Maybe she should sell her $25,000 sunglasses and get her fiance's eyebrows plucked and teeth whitenend for his PR pictures. If your gonna get sued, at least look presentable!

He's scary looking.
And she's always showing off on RHOBH.
I laugh when she tries so hard to fit into the group.
Dana: "Let's go, let's go on this journey."
Kyle: "...Who?"
Dana: "Us!"
Ahhh xD

Watched tonight's episode. Becoming convinced that all along Taylor Armstrong was LYING about Russell, as she lies about other things, and as many suspected, I've defended her (and Russell) before, it absolutely appears she's on something and SEVERELY psychotic or bipolar. She wears these tiny dresses, ALL the time, you don't see a mark on her ANYWHERE. EVER. But on tonight's episode, what unfolded was far more TELLING in regards to the alleged abuse, than her flawless skin. RIP Russell
