Early Life and Meeting Wayne Brady
Aside from being born and raised in Columbia, not many details are known about Diana’s childhood and education. It is known that sometime in her life, she moved to the United States, and she was already trying her hand at a music career when she met fellow entertainer Wayne Brady. There are no specific details on how they met or how they started their relationship, but eventually they started dating.
The relationship would go well from there, and soon afterwards things got serious and the couple were married on New Year’s Eve in 1993, during the time that Wayne was already starting to make waves in his career as a comedian. However, the marriage proved short lived, as they started to run into problems, and while details have not been shared, it grew and started a rift between the couple, which eventually led to them calling it quits two years after marrying, in 1995. According to some reports, the problem they had is that they couldn’t find time for each other, especially as Wayne was constantly travelling around as his career advanced.
After the divorce, it was a difficult time for Lasso, but she eventually moved on with her life. She tried her hand once more at a career in the music industry, returning to her home in Columbia to pursue her passion. This eventually turned out well for her, as she began a music career in her hometown, and her popularity grew as she released various singles and albums.
Wayne on the other hand went on to host his own daytime show called “The Wayne Brady Show”, and also became the original host of the television game series entitled “Don’t Forget the Lyrics!” Then in 2009 he became the host of the revival of the game show “Let’s Make A Deal”. Aside from his hosting work, he also turned to Broadway with his acting and music, and became a part of the Tony Award-winning musical entitled “Kinky Boots”, in which he played the dual role of Simon and drag queen Lola.
Later Career and Other Endeavors
Diana continued to make music, and eventually it started being featured on various radio stations. Her singles made their way onto various online platforms, and she started to get a lot of exposure. In 2014, she released the song “Esta Noche No” which gained a lot of radio play in her locality. She also began to make guest appearances in various radio and television programs.
Since divorcing from Wayne, there have been no reported new relationships for Diana; it is either that she has remained single and focused on her career, or she has a relationship but is keeping it away from the media spotlight. Diana would go on to share her side of the story through YouTube, saying in her native tongue that she moved into a small house after the divorce, and struggled every day until she found her break in music. She didn’t do well initially, but held on and found success.
Her former husband on the other hand went on to marry dancer Mandie Taketa and they would have a child. However, the marriage also proved unsuccessful, as the couple divorced in 2007. There have also been other celebrities linked to Brady, including Chilli, best known for being a part of the music group TLC.
