Lynda Erkiletian is a divorcee who believes in astrology but not in the idea of marriage. However, that doesn’t mean she hasn’t found love in her much younger boyfriend, Ebong. This southern girl is not just a mother to her children, Aaron, Jessica, Mihran, and Sam, but also a mother figure to her social circles in D.C.
Erkiletian grew up in a military family with southern roots and moved frequently during childhood. During her senior year of high school, they moved to New York. She found difficulty coping and was even diagnosed with dyslexia. She strived to overcome it though, dabbling in the arts instead. She developed a passion for the fashion industry soon enough, working at Peoples Place for Tommy Hilfiger.
She then transferred to Washington, D.C. and worked as a receptionist in a hair salon. However, she decided to instead audition as a backup singer for Candi Staton and was accepted. Her next endeavor was as a freelance hair and makeup artist, getting clients like first lady Nancy Reagan, Patty Duke and Sugar Ray Leonard.
Soon Lynda kept herself busy as the owner and founder of T.H.E Artist Agency and with her numerous charitable organizations. She also stars as one of the cast members of Bravo's The Real Housewives of D.C.
