Who Is 'RHOBH' Star Diana Jenkins’ Fiancé, Asher Monroe? All About His Music Career, Net Worth, And More

"Without her, I would not be the man I am today," he says of Diana.

Diana Jenkins, 49, is the newest member of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast, and she’s made it clear that she’s not here to mess around. The 49-year-old philanthropist has called herself a "villain" and has definitely made a name for herself by diving head first into the Housewives drama.

Diana dropped some big news recently, announcing on RHOBH that she is now engaged to singer-songwriter Asher Monroe, 33. The couple welcomed a daughter, Eliyanah, in 2020, and seem really happy together. Like honeymoon-stage happy together. But it turns out, they've known each other for quite a while now.

But…who is Asher Monroe, exactly? Here’s what you need to know.

Asher Monroe is an actor, dancer, and musician.

Turns out, he's also pretty famous. Asher Monroe Book ("Asher Monroe" is his stage name) has an impressive resume: He’s an actor/dancer/musician from Arlington, Virginia, according to his IMDB profile.

Asher has been in a bunch of stuff you’ve probably seen. Perhaps most famously, he starred as the total teen heartthrob, Marco, in the 2009 reboot of Fame. After that, he also had roles in the movies Parenthood and Medium, and even appeared on TV shows like Dora The Explorer and Zoey 101. So, he kind of crushed the early aughts.

He started a record label with Diana in 2012.

Asher’s most recent acting credit is from 2010 when he appeared on The Mentalist. And before that, he played Steve Williams on Parenthood.

Now, Asher mostly gears all his creative energy toward his music career. He co-founded an independent record label with Diana way back in 2012, and regularly drops snippets of himself performing on Instagram. TBH, his voice is just as good as it was when he sang "Someone To Watch Over Me" in Fame all those years ago.

"I’m not used to sharing songs in the embryonic stage. I used to hold onto my favorites for weeks, months heck even years worrying about perfecting every nook and cranny before releasing them to my fans. My new strategy is to do things a little different," he wrote in the caption of a recent post.

Asher has also collabed with some pretty well-known artists, including Sean Kingston and Chris Brown. He dropped an album in 2021 called "Talk with God" and was working on another one called "Windows of Time," per Our Culture magazine.

His net worth is a fraction of Diana's.

Great question! There are a lot of different numbers floating around the internet, but the most common estimate is that Asher is worth roughly $1.5 million.

Combined with Diana's estimated net worth of $300 million, I'd say the couple does quite well.

He's known Diana for at least 12 years.

Let's go back to like, 2012. Remember? The recording studio? They definitely knew each other then, and at the time, he would have been around 21 years old. Asher gave Diana a shout-out on Instagram this past Valentine’s Day, noting that he first spotted Diana 12 years ago. But it’s not clear when the two actually made it official and started dating.

In 2021, Asher spoke to Pop Hearts TV and mentioned his longstanding admiration for his new fianceé. When asked who had made a valuable impact on his career, Asher said it was Diana.

"[She] has made a valuable impact on my career. She has stood by my side through thick and thin. Without her I would not be the man I am today," he said. "I have always looked up to her in the way she runs her life. Being a role model, war survivor, philanthropist, mother, entrepreneur and so much more. It’s hard to scratch the surface of the impact she has had on me forever.”

This will be Diana's second marriage.

Diana was previously married to Roger Jenkins, a banker she met in London— but the two separated in 2009 and divorced two years later. Diana got a $250 million settlement in the divorce, according to the Daily Mail. She shared on RHOBH that she got divorced because she “wasn’t happy” in her marriage.

When's the wedding?

It’s not entirely clear when Asher proposed or when the two will get married, but Diana has been wearing a ring on her left ring finger from time to time since back in 2021. But it kind of looks like an accessorizing ring, not the ring.
