In the latest episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Diana Jenkins’ fiancé Asher Monroe gave a performance at their holiday party, which reminded fans of David Foster. Diana is the newest member of RHOBH season 12, and fans were curious about her relationship with her much younger fiancé, Asher. Previously married to billionaire Roger Jenkins, Diana shared that she had no intention of getting married again after her divorce in 2011. However, she recalled meeting Asher at a Victoria’s Secret party, and the two have been inseparable since.
Among many other thriving businesses, Diana owns her record label D Empire Entertainment, to which Asher is signed. Many fans may recognize Asher from the hit television shows Parenthood, Medium, and The Mentalist. Asher is also a singer/songwriter and recently released his latest album, Windows of Time. The multitalented performer starred in Broadway’s Beauty and the Beast at just six years old and went on to star in The Sound of Music and Oliver.
During Diana’s lavish holiday party in a recent RHOBH episode, the guests gathered around to hear Asher sing a rendition of O Holy Night, with Ric’key Pageot on the piano. As RHOBH star Erika Jayne peered at the sheet music, Asher shooed her away. Fans thought the seemingly “impromptu” performance was cheesy and reminded them of a previous RHOBH episode when Yolanda Hadid’s then-husband David Foster performed for them at their dinner party. As the housewives tried to sing along, the grammy winner shushed them and told them to only listen. RHOBH fan Mary tweeted, “That was the funniest scene I’ve seen on tv this summer! I was on the floor laughing. Reminded me of the David Foster days.”
Asher’s performance was not as formal, but when an inebriated Erika sang along midway through the song, RHOBH fans cringed. Asher was not as stern as David and ignored Erika, but many could see he didn’t appreciate the duet. Viewers also noticed that a guest who was sitting behind Erika got up and walked away. Garcelle Beauvais shot dagger looks at Erika, but she kept singing along, oblivious to her cringey behavior. Twitter user Cathy Cathy commented, “It really was sweet but the drunk screaming like a banshee with its head on fire in the background detracted the full effect.”
Many RHOBH fans wondered why Diana, who is a multimillionaire business mogul, needed to join the cast. Now, viewers are wondering if she became a housewife to promote Asher’s music career. Fans also commented on Diana and Asher’s lack of romantic chemistry and wondered if their relationship was just for convenience. Diana is an enigma to many viewers of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Asher’s latest performance had fans scratching their heads.
