“Howard Hughes comes in, hires my grandfather-in-law as his driver and henchman,” she told Distractify. “Howard Hughes loved the Mormons, and when he passed, the Gay family inherited a huge portion of his estate. The Gay family is worth billions, so I basically married into Mormon royalty.”

“I’m becoming a different person,” the business owner said on Us Weekly’s “Getting Real With the Housewives” podcast on December 16. “I just feel like I am starting to value the people that are in my life consistently, and that makes it hard for me to look at our friendship.”
