Career – professional biography
Faye was born July 3, 1957 in Brentwood, California. She is of French, Italian, and English ancestry and her mother was raising her alone and later together with a stepfather. Resnick remembers having a very hard childhood. She took some law classes at a local community college. At one point, young Faye worked as a manicurist. Resnick received her first publicity during infamous OJ Simpson trial when defense lawyers connected her to some drug dealers.
Her beauty and maybe also a short publicity on trial made her interesting for adult magazine with a bunny logo. She posed for them in 1997, revealing her slim toned physique and gladly providing several interviews afterwards.
In 2010, new iteration of popular Real Housewives franchise was born and Resnick, although not a part of the main cast, started appearing on it as a guest. With few exceptions, Faye starred in all seasons and in 2020 is present on season 10 still.
Family – ex husbands
Attractive Faye never had a shortage of affluent suitors. Let us have a brief look through the history of her exes. Resnick’s first husband was Rick Barnett and not much is known about him. They remained married only two years and after their divorce, Resnick relocated to London, UK and started a career in a modeling industry.
In London, she met a rich Fadi Halabi who was apparently some kind of an heir to a family fortune and as a result, he often behaved in bizarre ways. This second marriage led to Faye giving birth to her only daughter – Francesca. But even the small child did not cement this relationship and second divorce followed.
Faye’s third husband was Paul Resnick, who made a fortunes by restoring hotels. She is still keeping his last name as of 2020 but they actually separated way back in 1991. After this, Faye took a relatively long break from weddings but she eventually tied the knot with Everett Jack Jr. in 2015. He is a commercial litigation attorney with law offices in Portland and NYC.
