Diana Jenkins may be new to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this season, but she is definitely no stranger to Hollywood, counting many A-listers as close personal friends. In fact, a few of them have been cheering Diana on as her RHOBH journey begins.
Amid the drama between Lisa Rinna and Sutton Stracke over invites to one of Elton John’s past galas, the singer-songwriter took to Instagram with husband David Furnish to finally speak out on RHOBH Season 12 — to show his support for Diana joining the series, that is. “Good luck tonight. We love you so much. Thanks for all your support,” John said in a video shared on Diana’s Instagram on May 18. “And we’ll be cheering from a long way away.”
The clip was captured while the couple was in England, and Furnish noted of Diana’s RHOBH debut that they couldn’t “wait to catch up and see it soon.” John also posted the video to his Instagram Story at the time, and it was re-shared by Furnish. “Congrats [Diana] and thank you for all your support of [Elton John AIDS Foundation],” John captioned the clip in his Instagram Story. “[David] and I look forward to catching up on [RHOBH] soon!”
Diana, who has spoken on RHOBH about her longtime involvement with the Elton John AIDS Foundation as a sponsor of the gala event, reacted to John and Furnish’s message on Instagram, writing, “I am [Elton John] and [David Furnish’s] favorite [Housewife] already. Jealous much? Lol.”
That was only the beginning. Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka also shared their excitement about Diana joining RHOBH in an Instagram video, with Burtka referring to the Beverly Hills Housewife as not just a friend but “family.” Burtka posted the clip to his Instagram on May 18, and Diana later re-shared it.
Burtka went on to call Diana and her family “great people” before Harris encouraged everyone to tune in to RHOBH Season 12 to see the newest addition to the cast. “If you have never watched The Real Housewives of anything, which I haven’t, start now ’cause Diana Jenkins is life,” he said.
Burtka also called Diana an “absolute star,” adding, “So proud of her.”
And you know you’ve made it when Anthony Kiedis is singing about you. Diana posted a video of the Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman serenading her with a little tune featuring these lyrics: “Oh, how I love Diana. Oh, how I love that breeze / Diana Jenkins, you’re the one. Yes, you’re the one for me / If Beverly Hills had a Housewife, I’d tell you who she’d be / Diana Jenkins, you’re the one. Yes, you’re the one for me.”
Diana simply captioned this ultimate mic drop, “Need I say more.”
If you scroll through Diana’s Instagram, you will see that it is completely star-studded, showing the Beverly Hills Housewife rubbing elbows with the likes of Guy Ritchie, Sylvester Stallone, DJ Khaled, and even Pope Francis over the years.
Diana has also charmed many in the Bravo-verse, having already been friends with Lisa Rinna and Crystal Kung Minkoff prior to this season of RHOBH. Andy Cohen, who is an executive producer of The Real Housewives, called Diana “a fantastic addition to the show” while speaking with The Daily Dish at the NBCUniversal upfront last month. And Erika Jayne also welcomed Diana to RHOBH with open arms while speaking about the newbie on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in May. “Love. Love Diana. Love everything about her, and I’ve gotten to know her, and she’s wonderful,” Erika shared. “She’s really solid. She’s a very solid person. I really like her.”
