Diana talks about the loss of her brother

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills welcomed Diana Jenkins in season 12 and during the show, she told Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke that she lost her brother in the Bosnian War.

Speaking of her brother she said: “He was killed in the war. He was young.”

Diana called out Sutton because she said that she had shared one of the most painful moments of her life with her but she later regretted sharing the information because she thought Sutton was “fake”.

The RHOBH star had to leave her family behind

Diana was born in Bosnia but The Siege of Sarajevo in 1992 forced her to flee her home country.

As per Diana’s website, her brother was called Irnis Ćatić and he studied economics. He was 21 years old when he died: “Just a few days before the Dayton Accord ended the war, Irnis was murdered by Serb forces in a village in western Bosnia.”

Due to the conflict in her country, Diana had to leave her family behind and she worked multiple jobs in the UK to support herself.

Diana suffered more loss recently

As well as losing her brother many years ago, Diana said on the show that she had lost a baby recently, too.

Sutton said that Diana was meant to be “on bed rest” during RHOBH due to her recently losing a baby.

Diana said: “Twelve weeks ago, I lost a baby” and Sutton replied that she knew how she felt as she’d had two miscarriages.

Diana disagreed, insinuating that her situation was different. As per Screen Rant, Diana had to deliver her stillborn baby as the baby had tragically passed.

The RHOBH star is a mother of three children, two from her first marriage to Roger Jenkins and she shares her youngest daughter with her fiancé Asher Monroe.
