Diana Jenkins accuses the media of defamation


Diana Jenkins’ first season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills didn’t go smoothly, and now she’s sending cease and desist messages to various media outlets. Diana’s lawyer called for the immediate removal of any false statements about Diana and threatened legal action if they failed to do so. The drama began when the media reported that Diana and Erika Jayne may have paid robots to harass Jax, the son of Garcelle Beauvais.


However, Diana and the entire cast of RHOBH reposted a letter expressing support for Jax and disgusted with viewer behavior. Bravo’s open letter posted on each of the Housewives’ Instagram pages read: “We are shocked and appalled by the social comments directed at Garcelle’s son. We urge our viewers and social followers to refrain from targeting our cast and their families with harmful rhetoric.” Diana went on to say that the insinuation that she incited hateful cyberbullying couldn’t be further from the truth. She also asked netizens to stop attacking her and her family.

Diana’s communications team then sent cease and desist letters today to Gawker, Jezebel, Heavy, South China Morning Postpodcast host Dana Wilkey and the producers of the Unique and sexy podcast. Diana spoke and wrote, “For too long, irresponsible journalists, bloggers and social media commentators have been spreading hurtful lies about me without consequences. I will no longer sit back and allow them to smear my name with impunity. I have asked my lawyers to take all necessary steps to suppress these false statements and prosecute those who spread lies about me.” Diana said she would not stop campaigning until justice was served and demanded responsible journalism and the media “#RetractTheLie.”

Diana launches the aggressive campaign and calls on all media to remove all unsubstantiated allegations about her, including allegations of sex trafficking, money laundering, prostitution, pedophilia and financial crimes. Many believe that Diana joined RHOBH primarily to help dispel rumors surrounding his book Room 23, suggesting she was a madam for a celebrity escort service. Diana’s attorney, J. Erik Connolly, took the most aggressive stance against “Enty Lawyer” whose writings have resurrected many rumors. Room 23 and unsubstantiated claims that Diana was friends with Jeffrey Epstein. Diana and Connolly clarified that any continued publication of falsehoods will result in immediate legal action.

Diana seems furious and deeply hurt by the false narratives she calls inherently sexist and emotionally distressing. Time will tell what happens, but in the meantime, the Bosnian refugee turned Hollywood mogul seems focused on her peace. Diana posted a photo of a palm tree in Hawaii, captioned, “Aloha, I just wish the ‘mosquitoes’ would go away so I could enjoy this breathtaking beauty.” Maybe there were mosquitoes, or maybe the air quotes hint at pesky media that Diana swore her enemy. RHOBH Fans may have their doubts about Diana, but she’s made it clear that she’s not afraid to play the villain even as she proves she isn’t one in real life.
