Get ready to meet the new friend of housewives on 'Real Housewives of Potomac'! Robyn Dixon's friend Askale Davis will be joining the Potomac housewives as the new cast member of Bravo's hit reality show.
Although a friend of housewives isn't the main cast member of 'Real Housewives' series, nevertheless these ladies have managed to drum up some crazy drama in the past and are often very integral to the show's plotline, for instance, who can forget the infamous Denise Richards affair fiasco on 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills', which Brandi Glanville, a friend of housewives managed to bring to the table or LaToya Ali and her over the top shenanigans on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'. Now, we have someone similar for Potomac franchise and we couldn't be more excited. If you're curious to know more about Askale, then read on.

Who is Askale Davis?
If you take a peek at Askale's Instagram, you'll instantly learn two things about her: a) she is extremely proud of her Ethiopian heritage and culture, and b) family means the world to her. There's no information available about Askale's early life or age. According to her Instagram she was born on December 31.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from Howard University. In an Instagram post she shared, "Did you know I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry? I was even inducted into Beta Kappa Chi, a scientific honor society🤓. So much for using that degree."
She began dating her current husband Dre Davis in 2015, and the couple got married in 2018. They share two children together, while Dre has two children from a previous relationship. In another post, Askale expressed her love towards her 'bonus children'. She wrote, ".I was always the type of woman who said “I’m never going to date a man w/ kids.” Not only was that engrained in my head, it was also made very clear how frowned upon that was within my own family & culture. I remember being in the beginning stages of Dre & I dating & thinking to myself “if this goes any further, how am I going to explain this to my parents & family & what will everyone think?” The anxiety that came along with the potential judgement from my family & community killed me. I remember bringing it up to someone very close to me & their response being “don’t you want to experience all of your big milestones such as your wedding day & childbirth for the first time with your lifelong partner?” I’d be lying if I said that comment didn’t crush me. Until one day, God spoke to me & said follow your heart b/c what you see as a non-negotiable or roadblock may actually be a unexpected blessing."
"That message instantly transformed my mindset & outlook. From that day on, I made a conscious decision to lean all the way into the relationship & keep an open mind when it came to our children. That decision was one of the best things I could’ve done. Since my very first encounter with my bonus babies, Bleu & River they have been a true blessing to my life. They’ve been such a source of unconditional love & light & I’m so thankful that God chose me to be a receiver of all that they have to offer. I truly can’t express how blessed I feel to have them in my life. Not only in my life but my entire family has embraced them as well. My parents, brother, cousins, we’re all just one big happy blended family. I owe this in part to their biological mother & Dre who did an amazing job of instilling core values into them prior to my arrival & for moving forward so maturely (no baby mama drama here 🤣). Moral of the story, don’t block your blessing b/c you’re too worried about what others may think," she concluded.
Askale Davis' net worth
According to Bravo, Askale is also known as "Ethi-Oprah" (Ethiopian Oprah), and she is reportedly not afraid to 'stir the pot', so we can definitely expect to see some drama coming our way thanks to Askale. When she isn't stirring the pot, Askale works as Community Engagement Manager at UNCF's K-12 advocacy group. According to the organization's website, Askale has devoted her career to "urban education and workforce readiness in the Washington, DC area." Askale's net worth is currently not public, although we wouldn't be surprised if it's pretty impressive net worth. With her new job as a Bravo celebrity, her net worth will only continue to soar.
