Diana Jenkins could quickly become a rescue in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. As the newest member of the show’s cast, many viewers might have expected Jenkins to stay more in the background in its first season. However, due to her recent actions, she seems to be becoming a fan favorite. Jenkins recently made headlines for donating to the victims of a tragic plane crash in 2018 that killed 189 people, according to TMZ. Many thought her donation was a dig by housewife Erika Jayne, whose estranged husband was accused of withholding settlement funds that were meant to go to victims’ families. However, sources told TMZ that the donation was genuine and that Jenkins spoke to Jayne about her decision to support those affected beforehand.
Other housewives such as Sutton Stracke and Garcelle Beauvais have attacked Jayne for her alleged connection to the case. However, Jenkins emphasized that she wanted to do something to help the families’ victims, rather than just starting drama on the series. This, of course, earned her brownie points from viewers.
And Jenkins’ latest series of bold moves didn’t stop there. After her housewife, Garcelle Beauvais, revealed that her teenage son was receiving hateful messages online, Jenkins decided to take matters into his own hands.
Diana Jenkins isn’t letting online trolls get away with bullying
Unfortunately, while the stars of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” are used to receiving criticism and potentially hurtful comments online, their kids haven’t signed up for the same thing. Things got out of hand recently when Garcelle Beauvais’ teenage son received hateful messages and comments online, prompting several other housewives to speak out, including Kathy Hilton and Lisa Rinna, per People. Bravo also released an official statement regarding the negative comments made towards Beauvais’ son Jax to denounce hate speech towards cast members and their families. However, “RHOBH” star Diana Jenkins has gone a step further after Twitter users spread rumors that she was behind the online attacks.
Now Jenkins is taking legal action to identify the real people behind the online attacks on Beauvais’ son. She recently filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court to hold those who send hateful and racist messages to Jax accountable. In an Instagram post with screenshots of the court documents, the lawsuit said, “This action seeks to expose and hold accountable the morally bankrupt individual who assaulted a child and blamed Ms. Jenkins for her actions.” Jenkins received support from fellow cast members Lisa Rinna and Erika Jayne in the comments section. It’s currently unclear where the lawsuit will lead, but Jenkins is clearly fighting for justice right now.
