Diana Jenkins explains her allergy to clothing stores

On the May 25 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Newcomer Diana Jenkins shared, “I don’t go out shopping…I have clothes sent home from designers.” Although she didn’t explain her reason for being at the time, she did explain why she avoids stores during the show’s June 1 episode – and the reason isn’t the one to which we expected.

As Diana was about to go to Sutton Stracke’s party at her West Hollywood boutique, she was asked, “You’ve never been to Sutton’s boutique before, have you?” to which she joked, “I’ve never been to a store.”

After Diana’s stylist, Lia, replied, “I’ve worked with Diana for 13 years, I would say. I don’t think she’s ever been to a store,” Diana was quick to explain her reasoning: “[It’s] because of my allergy.

A little confused? Allow Lia to offer more insight: “She’s allergic to dust and she thinks there’s too much dust in the stores.” Diana added: “The problem is also the chemicals. My eyes are starting to pop out and I’m really starting to puff up.

Although Diana also went to Kyle Richards’ store opening (the “first” she’s ever attended, by the way), she rarely needs to set foot in a clothing store. “I do my shopping at home,” she said in an interview. “Since most designers know my style, my tastes, my size, they put things aside for me.”
