Lauren Wirkus was born on the 16th of October 1988 in South Carolina. While Lauren rarely talks about her father, she is all too open about her mother Dana. Lauren gets all her fearlessness and quirkiness from her mother, who back in the day used to drive up to the pacific highway and tell everyone to expose their right breast. Impressed by her mother’s antics, Lauren founded the “One Tit Crew”, with her friends. Still a part of the crew, the group loves to stir up things now and then. As a young kid, Lauren attended a local high school alongside her twin sister, Ashley. She then enrolled at the University of Carolina and graduated with a degree in Managerial Economics.
Lauren had a mind for business from a very young age and decided to follow an entrepreneurial career. After graduating from college, Lauren interned for Daymond John and sharpened her business skills. She later partnered up with Crystal Torres to work on the Ethan Rose Salon, but things went wrong after the pair had a fight and had to undergo a legal battle. Lauren believed that Torres lacked the skills to run the business successfully and asked for her investment back. Torres replied that the only option available for Lauren is to have someone buy the shares. Not wanting to put someone in the same position, Lauren filed a case against Torres. On the other hand, Torres claimed that Lauren had outstanding debt and had also violated the terms of shareholder’s agreement. Talking to page six, Torres revealed,
“Lauren Wirkus has [an] outstanding bill of 90K of unpaid beauty services from April 2017 – March 2018. In addition Lauren bought into the company in 2017, with a discounted buy-in price contingent she perform her duties from the shareholder agreement which she wrote and agreed on.”
Lauren has an estimated net worth of $1 million which she earned most of her wealth from appearing in the Bravo reality series Summer House for two seasons and her website and social media platforms.
For the first two seasons of the summer house, Lauren shared a complicated relationship with her roommate Carl Radke. While everyone believed that the pair had undeniable chemistry, things were not as easy as they wanted it to be. Even after they split-up, fans were wondering if they would get back together. However, Lauren replied that she only saw friendship in the future. True to her words, Lauren began dating David Riah and the pair got engaged on the 2nd of March, 2020. The pair moved in together and tied the knot in a small ceremony on the 27th of June. Lauren broke the news on Instagram with the caption,
“FINALLY ANNOUNCING MR. & MRS. RAIH. LOVE CONQUERS ALL.”
The pair tied the knot at St. Monica Catholic Church and the reception was held at the home of David’s brother and sister-in-law, Chris and Jean Raih.
On April 16, 2021, Lauren and David became parents to a baby girl, whom they named Goldie Sara Raih, in Nashville, Tennessee. They chose Goldie as a name they both loved and Sara as Lauren’s middle name, which she inherited from her great-great-grandmother who attended Belmont University in Nashville . Lauren said that Goldie was “the best thing that ever happened” to her and David. The pair also welcomed their second child, baby boy named Rockford David Raih on 27 September, 2022.
