Diana Jenkins’ fiancé opened up about Erika Jayne.

“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star’s man, Asher Monroe, previously made headlines for his performance of the Christmas hymn “O Holy Night” that aired on the Bravo reality show, a performance that Erika Jayne ultimately hijacked.

Fans saw the situation play out on the July 27, 2022, RHOBH episode, titled “Beverly Hills Blackout,” when Jenkins, 49, hosted a gala at her mansion that featured her 33-year-old fiancé performing a Christmas concert with piano accompanist Ric’key Pageot. But it didn’t take long for a tipsy Erika Jayne to start singing along so loudly from her chair that Monroe’s voice couldn’t be heard over her.

On social media, viewers reacted to the awkward scene. “This whole scene was CRINGE! …. Erika trying to steal his thunder,” one fan wrote on Instagram.

But while Monroe had every right to be bothered by Erika trying to steal his thunder, he actually had the opposite reaction when asked about it in a recent interview.
