Reality television star Peggy Sulahian rose to fame in 2017 when she joined the main cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County also know as RHOC. She definitely fits right into the group of fashionable and wealthy women on this show as her husband’s business success allows her to lead a privileged life. In 2020, Peggy Sulahian net worth surpassed $6 milllion and keeps growing. Similar celebrities to check for wealth include Diko Sulahian, Rickard Deler and Sutton Stracke.
Bio, husband and family
Although born July 30, 1973 in Kuwait, Peggy is of Armenian ancestry. Her maiden name is Peggy Atteukenian but she changed it to Peggy Sulahian when she married Diko Sulahian in Beverly Hills in 1995. Her husband is also of Armenian ethnicity and they were introduced to each other by their families. We are not sure what went wrong, but it took them only a year before they got a divorce, despite having a similar cultural background. Unlike some other couples, they parted on good terms and eventually found their way back together.
Peggy gave birth to 3 children, daughters Giovanna and Gianelle and son Koko. Several source differ regarding if Peggy and Diko are officially married now but since her Instagram account says Wife + Mom, we are leaning towards the theory that they remarried after the divorce.
Breast cancer and double masectomy
Sulahian’s mom died of breast cancer in her fifties. And Peggy herself found a lump in her right breast just few years back. The diagnosis was unfortunately a cancerous growth. It was decided that Sulahian will undergo double mastectomy, followed by a reconstructive surgery. He family was a big support to her during these stressful times but Peggy didn’t stop filmingn RHOC and focused on life instead of a disease.

Sources of income, salary
For appearing on Real Housewives of Orange County, Peggy is surely receiving a nice financial compensation. Although the details of her contract were not revealed yet, several other “housewives” revealed in the past, that you can have a salary around $60,000 per episode! That is not too bad indeed. Although Peggy joined the reality TV franchise just couple years back, she soon became one of the most popular characters so we believe her salary is at least close to this number.
But despite this hefty sum from Bravo TV, majority of Peggy Sulahian net worth is thanks to her husband’s business. Long time ago, he started a custom wheel company that specializes on a luxurious end of the market. His rims are decorating Ferraris and Rolls-Royces across California. He even named the wheel lines after their kids.
Being famous also brings in some cash on its own. Sulahian has over 135 thousand followers on her Instagram account and makes money by endorsing various products. Lately, she has been collaborating with Double Dare Spa and released her own OMG! 24 Pure Serum, which is an anti-aging and skin cleansing product made mostly from rose water and 24 carat gold. But it also containes several active ingredients, such as hydrolyzed collagen and adenosine. According to the description, Peggy uses this beauty serum herself.
