Her Mother Works At A Controversial CNN

Bianna Golodryga is a celebrated journalist in the US. But many don't like her too. The hate she receives mainly comes from her association with CNN.

What was once a reputed name in journalism has become one of the biggest jokes in recent years. CNN has often been accused of spreading fake news in the past. People have also accused them of biased reporting and heavily left-leaning news when news channels are expected to be neutral. They are heavily trolled and have been called "Fake News Network."

CNN ratings are all-time low, and the hate people have for the network has translated to their workers, including Maria's mother, Bianna. She had previously talked about her family fleeing Moscow for the US during an attempted coup back when the Soviet Union saw their last leader Mikhail Gorbachev. One guy called her out, saying:

And now you are employed by the fake news media @cnn

Maria Isabel Orszag's Father's Legal Custody Battle

Peter's marriage with Bianna was not the first one. It was also not the first time he became a father in a relationship. The man found himself in a legal battle with his ex-wife Cameron Kennedy.

Kennedy and Peter had filed for divorce in 2006. They were also the parents of two: a daughter and a son. She wanted him to provide financially for her and her kid's stability. She asked for $22 thousand monthly payments.

After two long years of battle, the court gave the verdict in favor of Peter. The official statement from the court read:

Indeed, given the contentious nature seemingly of all interactions between the parties, it is likely in the best interest of the children for the Court to avoid putting in place any arrangement that would lead to increased contact between the parties.

The Time Peter Worked With Obama

Peter is a massive name in the world of finances. He is known for giving out brilliant financial advice. His impressive CV also landed him a job in then-US President Barack Obama's administration.

The Scandal Involving Maria Isabel Orszag's Father

Peter Orszag was part of a scandal that single-handedly ruined his reputation among many people. After announcing that he's engaged to Bianna, the news came out that his former girlfriend Claire Milonas gave birth to their child.

Although Peter defended himself, saying their relationship had ended a long time back. It didn't stop people from trolling him. Some alleged that he runs away from his father's duties since he is the father of many kids. It was not only ordinary people but even big names like Nathan Thomas Stewart's father, Jon Stewart, who made fun of his situation.

She Has A Big Brother

Her Mother Is An Immigrant

Maria Isabel Orszag's mother, Bianna, calls herself a proud immigrant. She is Jewish. She had to flee her land and resettle in the US because of her people's persecution in Europe and Russia. She was only 18 months old when she became a refugee. 

She has also talked about the organization HIAS. They were the ones who helped her family by providing them with a flight ticket to the US.

Being a refugee and seeing what her family went through, she now tries to help those left with no choice but to leave their homes. This is why she has come in defense of HIAS, which has been under criticism for a while.

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, or HIAS, helped Jews leave Europe and Russia when attacked. Many people, especially anti-immigrants, have criticized them for how they function.

Bianna, in her defense of HIAS, said:

HIAS helped many families like mine. I remember my parents every month, as much money as they could, maybe $20 a month, they would write checks to pay HIAS back for bringing us here. It's helped millions of people like my family resettle, millions of Jewish refugees. It began in the 1880s to focus on Jewish refugees resettle around the world. Most recently it has expanded to helping refugees of all backgrounds."
