What is Jennie Nguyen's net worth? Vietnam-born 'RHOSLC' star escaped to US at age 7
Salt Lake City, Utah, might be popular for its Mormonism but don't let that fool you into believing that all the residents of this city are austere Mormons who lead a very conservative and modest lifestyle. Bravo's new 'Real Housewives' franchise 'Real Housewives of Salt Lake City' is a testament to the glamorous and glitzy lifestyle that many practicing and non-practicing Mormons lead in Salt Lake City.
From Lisa Barlow, who identifies herself as a Mormon 2.0 and runs a vodka business, to Whitney Rose and her cousin Heather Gay have openly traded their Mormon roots for a more modern and open lifestyle and Jen Shah, who converted to Islam after learning about the dark history of how Mormons treated minorities. Meredith Marks who is Jewish and runs a jewelry business, and Mary Cosby, a Pentecostal First Lady, these ladies are all very different from each other. But what unites all these ladies is their love and affinity for finer things in life. Joining these ladies on Season 2 of 'RHOSLC' is new housewife Jennie Nguyen. Jennie sure knows how to make a bold statement, as she makes her big entrance in her swanky lime-green Lamborghini. So how does Jennie compare to her peers when it comes to her net worth? Read on to get all the 101 on Jennie's fabulous lifestyle.

What is Jennie Nguyen's Net Worth?
Just like many of her fellow housewives, Jennie came from humble beginnings. The 45-year-old housewife was actually born in Vietnam. She moved to America at the age of seven with her family. Jennie shared her heart-breaking story of how her family and she escaped to America during a conversation with Lisa and their kids. She tells them that she escaped Vietnam on a boat. "I lived through the war and so because of the Communist country, we need to just escape," she explained. She also recounted all the hurdles that her family faced while trying to escape to America. "During our journey, we were captured by the Thai pirates, and we were placed in a Thai refugee camp. About three years into the camp, we were sponsored by a Christian church and that's how we ended up in Long Beach, California. And so that's how we came to America."
Although Jennie was actually seven years old when she set foot in America, her father lowered her age to five so that she could attend kindergarten. So, the housewife candidly explains in her green room interview that all her official documents state her age as 43, although she is 45 in reality. Since then Jennie and her family moved to Salt Lake City, Utah and now lead a very comfortable lifestyle.
The housewife used to run a med-spa business and looks like she was an extremely successful businesswoman. On her Instagram, she posted a picture of her garage filled with several luxury cars including a red Ferrari and green Lamborghini! Her net worth has been estimated to be around $3 million according to Stars Offline. But the housewife sold her business so that she could be a stay-at-home mom for her three kids.
Jennie is married to Dr Duy Tran. The couple has two sons and a daughter. Alongside being a stay-at-home, Jennie is also a budding YouTuber. The housewife decided to share her love for conscious living and eating clean through her YouTube channel, where she shares food recipes. Currently, she has only 36 subscribers on her channel, but we wouldn't be surprised if her channel blows up following her stint on the Bravo show.
With her YouTube and Bravo cheques, Jennie's net worth will only continue to see an upward trajectory. We can't wait to learn more about the new housewife and get a peek into her lavish life.
'Real Housewives of Salt Lake City' Season 2 premieres on Sunday, September 12 at 9/8c on Bravo.
