A Check Into Her Life Before Fame

Anna never worked in her life. She once said on Bling, “My father really never wanted me to have a job,” while my mother always told me, “You were born in a crystal ball with a silver spoon.” But still, for a while, Anna worked for her father as a volunteer at her parents’ arts-focused Shay Family Foundation.

She’s also a board member of the George Lopez Foundation, which promotes organ donation and kidney illness awareness. Anna is a Los Angeles-based heiress. And before the Netflix show Bling Empire premiered, the heiress was quite private and didn’t have much of a social media presence.

Her Way Towards Career Success

Anna was cast in Netflix’s reality show “Bling Empire” in 2021. Producer Jeff Jenkins, best known for his work on “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” encouraged her to join Bling Empire. Shay showed interest in working as an assistant on one of Jenkins’ productions, which led to her landing a leading role.

“I was seated in front of the camera the next thing I know,” Anna told “I’m pretty shy, so it was hard. I never dreamed of doing this, especially at my age.” And as of now, Anna is one of the most adored yet the highest-grossing members of “Bling Empire.”

How She Makes Millions? Explained:

Shay’s fortune originates from PAE. Following her father’s death in 1995, her brother, Allen E. Shay, became chairman and CEO of the company, but later sold it to Lockheed Martin for $1.2 billion in 2006. That windfall apparently made a split between Allen and Anna, which is why her net worth is quoted as $600 million.

Her Beverly Hills mansion had become too much for her!

Shay advertised her Sunset Boulevard home for $16 million in December, according to Variety. Built in 1926, the almost 9,000-square-foot estate has five bedrooms and five bathrooms. Shirley Temple and crime lord Tony Milano were among the previous occupants. According to the listing, the sprawling mansion has park-like grounds with mature palm trees, rolling lawns, original property fountains, a four-car garage, a massive motor court, a paddle tennis court, a pool house, and separate guest quarters.

Kenny Kemp was likely best known before Bling Empire for being one of America’s foremost marijuana paraphernalia collectors. Kemp was described as the “single heir to hundreds of millions of dollars” and a “passionate stoner” who kept his bong collection “in his mother’s basement” in a Buzz Feed report about the glass-bongs market from 2015.
