Bre Tiesi made quite a splash on Selling Sunset season 6, and now that one of Nick Cannon’s baby mamas is in the spotlight, there’s curiosity surrounding where the former model’s from. The Megan Fox lookalike stirred up drama between Oppenheim Group agents on the hit Netflix TV show. However, she also turned heads thanks to her glam image.
Bre’s past certainly made her a controversial addition to the Oppenheim Group, which was founded by twin brothers Brett and Jason Oppenheim. Before her connection to Nick, Bre was married to controversial quarterback Johnny Manziel. When she joined Selling Sunset, she came out of the gate as a strong and confident force to be reckoned with. However, she quickly clashed with season 5 newbie Chelsea Lazkani. While the chic brunette Bre gained notoriety from her relationship with Nick, which resulted in his eighth child, Legendary Love Cannon, Bre’s making a name for herself. She’s a highly successful and driven luxury real estate agent.
Selling Sunset’s Bre Tiesi Is From Los Angeles
According to an interview with People, Bre was born and raised in Los Angeles. The striking beauty began modeling in the city at the age of 16, when her boyfriend’s mom suggested that she break into the industry. The young Bre replied, “I was like, ‘Oh, I don’t know. I think I actually want to be a surgical technician.” However, it was a wake-up call for the teenager that her look was considered special. The Los Angeles native built a successful modeling career, but began to transition toward the real estate industry as she neared the age of 30. She worked with Keller Williams Beverly Hills as an agent, prior to signing on with the Oppenheim Group.
Selling Sunset’s Bre Has Sicilian/Italian Heritage
While the former model was born and raised in Los Angeles, procuring information about her ethnicity was challenging. However, according to Distractify, clues regarding Bre’s ethnicity could be found on Instagram through her mother, Debra Tiesi. Debra (a Calabasas-born and raised actress, model, and writer) states in her Instagram bio that she is a, “Sicilian/Italian Princess.” This strongly suggests that Bre is part Italian. It’s unlikely that someone not of Italian descent would have such a bio, so Bre is likely at least half Sicilian/Italian.
Bre, who has a complicated relationship with her mom, expressed on Selling Sunset season 6 (to Heather Rae El Moussa) that she emancipated herself from her parents at the age of 15. After a friend committed suicide, her mom found it hard to live with Bre. Therefore, she was sent to live with her father. At that point, Bre emancipated herself. However, it seems she and her mom have made amends, as she appears regularly on Debra’s Instagram, alongside her sister, Alexis. Her father’s background is unconfirmed. While his name is believed to be John Gregory, he could be her stepfather, and not her biological father.
While Bre’s full ethnic makeup is a mystery, it’s fair to say that the former model is of Caucasian descent, and is likely at least partially Italian. Bre modeled successfully for years because of her striking looks and resemblance to movie star Megan. However, part of the reason why she’s so captivating now may be Instagram filters. She’s clearly styling her look after the Kardashian-Jenner women, as is the fashion in 2023, and looks “filtered” in real life, thanks to high glam makeup. However, she’s more impressive than the Kardashians, as she is truly self-made.
The Los Angeles native came into the spotlight thanks to her connection to Nick. However, due to her Selling Sunset season 6 appearances, the interest in her background goes far deeper than the fact that she’s one of Nick’s latest baby mamas. Bre is 32 years old, and cares deeply about fitness and maintaining her appearance, so she will likely be recognized for her image for years to come. While her career in 2023 is geared toward luxury real estate, her style and vibe are also getting noticed.
