Turns out Diana Jenkins has more than one of her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costars in her corner.
We previously reported that Sheree Zampino recently defended Diana, saying the RHOBH newbie is “authentic” despite her enormous wealth.
Now, Crystal Minkoff is vouching for Diana amid pushback from fans that she’s pretentious and tacky.
Crystal believes that Diana keeps it real no matter what, unlike some of their co-stars.
“Here’s the thing with Diana: it’s because the people that I talk to in real life, like my friends, love her on the show. The audience online seems to not like her,” Crystal tells Entertainment Tonight. “I think she’s just a black-and-white person, and she’s just less forgiving, you know? Where I wear my heart on my shoulder, on like my sleeve. I think once she feels sort of wronged, it’s hard for her to see otherwise, and everyone has different personalities, and the audience doesn’t like that.”
“I get why people are hard on her, but that’s just who she is,” she continues, “and I appreciate that she won’t adjust. Like, that I think people don’t appreciate in her. Whereas other people move their personalities around to fit, she won’t and like, what else do you want? Do you want real, or do you want someone that’s gonna [be fake], right?”
Crystal adds that she’s “impressed” by Diana and how she’s handling the hate on social media, noting that it doesn’t seem to have phased her at all.
“She doesn’t adjust, and I think that that’s what people ask for, and so it’s like, take it or leave it,” she adds. “But that’s her.”
