Get to know the actress and singer that Bling Empire cast member Kevin Kreider reunites with on Season 3

Hands up if you, like us, have already binge-watched the entirety of Bling Empire season three which dropped on Netflix just yesterday afternoon.

If you have, you would know that besides the Andrew Gray drama and Kane Lim’s speculation on whether Baby G is really a prince or not, the series also brought in a brand new character into the folds of the elite group.

In the season, Kevin Kreider is reunited with Devon Diep, his ex-girlfriend from seven years ago. 

“I think it was Devon the whole time, and I was just looking for Devon in other people,” he said. “I just want to see her again.”

We all can admit that our hearts squeezed just a bit after seeing Kreider so heartbroken over Kim Lee a season ago. 

However, if you are wondering what Diep’s background is, look no further. Below is everything we know about Diep largely thanks to an essay she penned for Boston Man magazine last year.

1. She Is a Refugee From Vietnam

Many may not know this but Diep is actually a refugee from Vietnam. 

“I often remind myself that my parents escaped to a foreign country with no money, had to learn another language, and risked their lives for us to have a better future than what we had in Vietnam. I promised myself that I must succeed and make them proud,” she wrote in Boston Man magazine.

2. She Is an Actress, Singer, and Producer

Diep is not just a pretty face on the cast of Bling Empire. Rather, she is also a talented actress, singer, and producer.

“I have dreamt of singing and performing on stage my whole life. There are baby pictures of me happily singing in my own world. I knew in my heart that I had to pursue my dreams even though I had no idea how to,” Diep wrote in Boston Man magazine. 

“Luck came when I signed with a talent agency after winning a local competition. It started a successful modelling and acting career.”

Today, Diep also posts videos of herself singing on YouTube.

3. She Is a Talented Model

Besides being an incredible performer, Diep is also a talented and accomplished model who has worked with some of the biggest fashion brands in the world.

In her career, Diep has modelled for brands such as Estée Lauder, Donna Karan, Macy’s, Disney, Reebok, Puma, Converse and more. She is also a fan of posting videos of herself singing on YouTube.

4. She Knows How to Use a Gun

This might come as a surprise to many but Diep was actually once in the navy. Following in her father’s footsteps, the young star joined the Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps for four years. 

“I was in the Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) for 4 years. I am professionally trained to use pistols, shotguns, and rifles and am a candidate to be a Massachusetts State Police Certified Firearms Instructor,” she wrote in Boston Man magazine.

5. She Has Appeared in Multiple Television Shows

Besides her other accolades, you might also recognise Diep from a number of television shows such as The Heat, Ted, Top Gear and Defending Jacob.

6. She Is Worth About US$1.1 Million

At the end of the day, Bling Empire is a show about rich people and naturally, the question on everyone's mind is just how rich is Diep really?

While it is not entirely clear what her net worth is, Women’s Health magazine has reported that she is worth US$1.1 million.
