Diane Clohesy was the third wife of right-wing political commentator Stephen K. Bannon, who is also known as Steve Bannon. Diane moved to the United States in 1990 from Limerick Ireland with aspirations to become a model and make it in the modeling scene of the US.
The third wife of Bannon made her career in modeling where she got a few working opportunities, but like her husband was thrown away by Hollywood, she was also thrown away by the modeling industry.
With the inability to make a living from her preferred profession, she resorted to illegal dealings, and her alcohol problem also became a whole lot more pronounced. The former model never got her life back again; it was one mess after the other. So, here are five facts you should know about Steve Bannon’s ex-wife Diane Clohesy.
5. Trying Her Hand in Modeling
Diane wanted to be a model, and she was certain of it, and at the time, she was relatively beautiful to the thing she can make it in the industry. But Ireland was not the place where she was going to make it big, and the aspiring model knew it all, which is why she made her way to the States to jump-start her modeling career.
The aspiring model arrived in the US in 1990, and even though her height was not ideal for a model, she still found work in America and started to find her footing a little. But the relationship between modeling and her was not meant to be, which is why she lost all her opportunities.
4. The Spotlight Finding Her
Diane was in the spotlight for a while when she was modeling, but the light was never so bright, and it was limited for a small period of time. But when her ex-husband Steve Bannon became the right-hand man of Donald Trump and helped get him elected to the White House, everything came into focus.
