Diana Jenkins is giving Bravo insight into her $100k donation to the victims of the 2018 Lion Air plane crash.
On Tuesday, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star shared more details about her surprising donation via Instagram.
“Hearing about ALL the people who lost their lives on Lion Air Flight 610 weighed heavily on my heart during the filming of RHOBH and caused me to want to do something to support the families of the 189 victims,” Diana shared.
“This has nothing to do with any past or ongoing litigation. It is simply a way for me, Sunela Foundation, and our nonprofit partner GVNG to support the victims’ families. All funds raised will be collected, safeguarded, and dispersed by GVNG to immediate family members of those who died,” she continued.
Diana then explained how the family members of victims can receive money from her foundation.
“Details about how family members can apply for this support from GVNG will be released in the coming months. Learn more about the Lion Air Flight 610 Victims’ Project at SunelaFoundation.org,” she concluded.
As we previously reported, last week, the Bravo newbie vowed to donate $100k to the victims of the 2018 Lion Air plane crash after claiming she was “not aware” of the incident until she joined RHOBH and it “became a topic of conversation.”
Diana’s surprising donation is reportedly a dig at the RHOBH cast and hasn’t affected her friendship with Erika Jayne.
Erika’s estranged husband, Tom Girardi, was one of the lawyers representing the family members of the Lion Air crash victims. He allegedly embezzled millions of settlement funds intended for the families of the victims.
“This isn’t a dig at Erika,” a source close to the RHOBH newbie previously told Page Six. “It’s actually meant to send a message to the cast members who have expressed support for Tom’s alleged victims but never seem to do anything to help them.”
“Diana now wonders, ‘Well, if you feel so bad for the victims, what are you doing to help?’” the source added. “If anybody’s speculating that this donation affects Diana’s friendship with Erika. It doesn’t.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm on Bravo.
