You need a new villain? Here she is. As the rookie diamond holder this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Diana Jenkins didn’t exactly win people over. Not only has the Bosnian entrepreneur taken on fan favorites Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke and hassled viewers with their lip-licking, she’s also faced some disturbing allegations. Jenkins is not only accused of orchestrating the recent bot attack on Beauvais’ teenage son Jax’s social media, but is also the subject of a nasty rumor stretching back almost a decade.
It all started in 2012 when Jenkins was accused of being a woman and dealing with young celebrities in now-deleted comments on the blog Crazy Days and Nights, or CDAN for short. Using her photo book Room 23 as so-called evidence, which includes photos of Lindsay Lohan, Hayden Panettiere and future RHOBH co-star Lisa Rinna, the gossip was soon picked up by the likes of Jezebel and Oh No They Not. Although the claim was never proven, it still followed Jenkins, reappearing primarily at her “RHOBH” casting. CDAN has continued to publish posts about her, sometimes named and sometimes implied, over the past several years, the last alluding to her being published on August 29th.
Now, with Jenkins rumors at an all-time high and negative fan reception, she’s taking things to the next level. If publicly denying them on a hit TV show doesn’t work, what else?
Diana Jenkins sends cease and desist letters
After a decade of ignoring and then denying the troubling allegations against her, Diana Jenkins is finally taking legal action. Posting a photo of eight cease-and-desist letters on Instagram, she wrote, “For too long irresponsible journalists, bloggers and social media commentators have been spreading hurtful lies about me with no consequences.” take action to remove these false statements and demand justice against those who have lied about me.”
Given how much casual mudslinging there is in the reality TV rumor mill, it’s surprisingly rare for stars to post such public threats. However, the allegations surrounding Jenkins are far more damaging than the usual gossip. The recipients of the letters can be seen in Jenkins’ photo, and she also offered a greeting in the caption: “We launched the campaign today by sending legal letters to Enty Lawyer, Jezebel, Gawker, Heavy and others. I will not cease until justice is served.”
Enty Lawyer is the person behind Crazy Days and Nights, where the Jenkins rumors first emerged in 2012. Longtime “RHOBH” viewers will also note that one of the letters is addressed to Dana Wilkey, who served as “girlfriend of.” the series back in Season 2 and has since discussed the rumors on its YouTube channel. With the RHOBH season 12 reunion set to be filmed any day now, hopefully Jenkins can put the rumors to bed one last time.
