Rise to Stardom
Ashley Diaz first gained popularity after appearing on the eighth season of the reality television series 'Love & Hip Hop: New York' in late 2017. She was seen in seven episodes of the series, including reunion specials. On the show, she accompanied her boyfriend Navarro Gray, who featured as the manager for celebrities from the music and entertainment industries, including Anaís Martínez and Ayisha Diaz. Throughout the season, Ashley drew attention for her apparently rocky relationship with Gray, with whom she was expecting a baby; and her constant conflicts with his clients. She was introduced on the second episode of the show and was instantly frustrated after seeing Martínez flirting with her man. When Gray failed to fix the problem, Ashley took the initiative and in doing so, she almost has a showdown with Martínez.
Later in the series, her ambitious sister Ayisha asks Gray to fire her. Martínez, who overhears the conversation between the model and the celebrity manager, informs Ashley about it. In another episode called 'Bad Reputation', Ashley was seen accusing Gray of cheating on her and throws water in his face after discovering a text message communication between him and another woman. However, he claims that the messages were related to something special that he was planning for her. It turns out to be her baby shower, which they later celebrated with their families and friends and shared pictures on social media. Ashley is also on her way to become an Instagram star, and she already has a following of 226k.
