WHAT MAKES THEM HAUTE: The Pelosis were on the San Francisco scene long before the 21st century when Nancy Pelosi was catapulted to a national stage, as she became the first female elected speaker of the House of Representatives in 2007. But she is only one-half of the haute equation here, as Paul Pelosi has made his own mark on the world, albeit in a different arena. In addition to family money, his career in the Bay Area as a financier and businessman brought more fortune to the Pelosi name. At the time of her historic appointment, the couple claimed a net worth that made her the ninth-wealthiest member out of 435 House representatives.
