“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” would have a new cast member named Diana Jenkins. The 48-year-old Bosnian native was spotted filming for the show last week, alongside longtime “RHOBH” mainstays Lisa Rinna and Dorit Kemsley. (For the record, Bravo has yet to officially confirm or deny Jenkins’ alleged addition to the cast.)
But like many other women on the hit Bravo TV show, Jenkins isn’t much of a housewife. She doesn’t live in Beverly Hills either, for that matter. The divorcee long resided in Malibu before selling her $ 87 million home earlier this year to her next door neighbor. And the longtime socialite – who has been quoted once as saying “Money is a wonderful thing. I love winning it and I love spending it, ”has since lost $ 13 million in a smaller estate in the lifeguard community of Hidden Hills, in the heart of Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley.
Born Sanela Diana Jenkins in Bosnia, she emigrated to London in the 1990s following the Bosnian war. In the mid-2000s, Jenkins moved from London to California, where she has remained ever since; in California, she notably founded Neuro, a popular energy drink company. But most of his wealth comes from his marriage to famous English financier Roger “Big Dog” Jenkins, who was at one time the highest paid banker in all of Britain. The couple divorced in 2012, and Diana was granted full ownership of the couple’s Malibu estate atop beautiful Paradise Cove.
Today Jenkins is a divorced mother with two teenage children. She also shares a baby girl with her much younger boyfriend, Asher Monroe, a 33-year-old aspiring musician.
As for these new excavations of Hidden Hills, the 13,000 square foot mansion is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the prestigious Ashley Ridge section of Hidden Hills. With seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms, the home was built on speculation in 2019 and sold the following year for $ 10.8 million to Shalini Gupta, a Harvard-trained Ohio dermatologist, who almost immediately put the house up for sale. Jenkins arrived, who paid $ 13 million in an all-cash transfer – a profit of $ 2.2 million for Gupta before taxes, carrying fees, and realtor commissions.
The anthracite-colored structure has a double-height fireplace, a so-called “floating” staircase and herringbone oak floors. A large room communicates with the gourmet kitchen, which includes two stone islands and high-end appliances. There is also a desk / bookcase with built-in shelves, as well as a temperature-controlled wine cupboard, bar, soundproof cinema room, gym and state-of-the-art security system, according to the list. Upstairs, the master suite has two bathrooms and two closets, and there are six additional en-suite bedrooms for guests, family members and / or home staff.
Panoramic views of the surrounding hills, and the dark-bottomed pool at the back is endless for maximum visual drama. Jenkins’ new home is also right across the street from Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli’s $ 9.5 million primary residence, and it’s also right next to a huge mansion owned by the disgraced Nickelodeon executive. Dan Schneider. Other people in Sugar Borrowing Distance include Jeffree Star, Darkchild, and the side-by-side homes of Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner.
Josh and Matt Altman of Douglas Elliman’s Altman Brothers team held the Hidden Hills list; Tyrone McKillen and Sandeep Dhariwal of Compass replaced the buyer.
