In 2004, she joined the third season of “American Idol” and finished as a runner up to winner Fantasia Barrino.

Her debut album entitled “Blue Skies” was released at the end of the year, and debuted in 52nd spot on the Billboard 200, selling well despite not having much advertising, and helping to increase her net worth.

Two years later, she released an acoustic EP entitled “Unplugged in Nashville”, and then released another song entitled “Good Goodbye” which was used by her character in “The Young and the Restless” TV series in 2011-12.

She then went to work on the off-Broadway musical “The Toxic Avenger” before touring as part of “9 to 5”. One of her latest projects is 2015’s “The Wizard of Oz”. All of these projects helped her net worth rise further.

Diana has also done television and film work, beginning with 2011’s “The Young and the Restless” which she portrayed Angelina Veneziano. The following year, she was cast in “Wyatt Earp’s Revenge” and then made a cameo appearance in the Lifetime special “All About Christmas Eve”.

Quotes

#Quote
1I have found that the best thing to do in life is to look forward to the future and not dwell on the past. We all have problems. We can use them as an excuse or a stepping stone, but how we handle them is what sets us apart as human beings. Life is a giant school, and what we do with those lessons is up to us.
2I grew up listening to Patsy Cline. I was a huge Patsy Cline fan. I still am. Even though she's considered country, I think of her more as a blues singer. She's got a great blues voice and she has such an amazing story, which I always loved. I knew her entire greatest hits album backwards, forwards and inside out. My mother would try and skip over some of the songs to make the tape shorter and I'd go, "Hey, you missed one! You missed one!"
3Because I came in second place, it makes me want to work harder
4I've been doing this sort of thing my entire life. It's my love, it's my passion, it's what I do day in and day out. I eat, sleep, and breathe music and singing.
5At school my nickname is the National Anthem girl.
6When I found out I was in the finals I about had a heart attack I did this whole speechless thing and for me that is a really big thing cause I am a talker.
7I'm planning to be the youngest contestant in the Top 32, and I'm planning to be the youngest person in the Top 10...
8I have a very voluptuous rear, I have a J. Lo butt and I'm proud of it!
9If you see me, I'm always wearing black and pink. If I don't have it on, I at least have something that's black and pink. For instance, like, a bracelet or something.
