Diane Jenkins was the daughter of Kyle Jenkins and the mother of Kyle Abbott.
Figuring that dating Jack Abbott would help her become a top model at Jabot Cosmetics, Diane Jenkins decided to start sleeping with him.
Diane came to a conclusion that Jack isn't worth her time and focused on a new love, a detective named Andy Richards.
The couple married and led an uneventful life, and Diane began another affair with Jack. Disappointed, Diane left for Europe, but even there she couldn't rest. She began working for Jack again, leaving their families worried that they might hook up.
She fell in love with him but was left when he wanted to marry Patty Williams as a way to show his father that he was a grown man.
Diane and Jack continued their affair after the wedding.
