Diane Clohesy is a former model who is famous for her marriage to Steve Bannon, who is currently serving as White House Chief Strategist and senior counselor to President Donald Trump. He is close friends with Trump and was instrumental to him running a successful presidential campaign, so it was only natural that his loyalty and hard work was rewarded with an appointment in the administration. The announcement of his job role caused ruckus all across the United States as people considered him to be absolutely unqualified for the position that he was given. Diane’s former husband has also gained a lot of attention, mostly negative, for his anti-semitic, misogynistic, and white supremacist views which he has expressed time and time again.
Her relationship with Steve Bannon plunged her into the spotlight, bringing her a lot of attention from the media, as well as ordinary citizens. Diane became a controversial figure to the public after her battles with mental illness, violence, and drug addiction came to light. Her many altercations with the law coupled with the unflattering situations that she frequently found herself in have earned her more than her fair share of tabloid coverage.
