Right from the jump, Erika Girardi and her alter ego Erika Jayne were beyond intriguing to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers. From the much older husband to the fact that she has an alter ego and everything in between, Erika is always entertaining. Erika will share her life stories in a new memoir- published under stage name of course, so we know it’s going to be outrageous.
Even though the book is done, the Erika fans will have to wait until January 2018 to get their hands on it. In the mean time, Erika shares what we can expect from the memoir.
Erika stopped by Watch What Happens Live to address the intense episode with Andy Cohen and fellow guest, Real Housewives fanatic Megan McCain. I have to admit that I am an Erika Jayne fan, so it was tough for me to watch. It was the first time in Erika’s two years on the show when I found it difficult to back her up. I was nervous about the (deserved) backlash that she was bound to get for flipping out at Eileen for no reason.
This week, Rinna points the finger at Kyle Richards for keeping the gossip train going – apparently, because she told her sister, Kim, what Rinna said about her. Also, because Rinna has no more people left to point fingers at. Ladies and gentlemen, The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills has entered a new dimension of circular logic: The Rinna Dimension. Come with me on a bumpy ride through her blog…
Thus, we’ve officially entered the ridiculous realm of alternative facts, possibly for good with these two.
Though Eileen was mercifully absent from this week’s episode, she has a lot to say about Rinna’slies situation. “I think this bears repeating: Lisa R. clearly did not remember what she’d said to Eden. There’s no reason to lie. Lisa R. knows she was on camera! Why would she put herself through this? The only explanation is that she did not remember. If she did, she would own it. That is who Lisa R. is, and we all know that about her by now. I am feeling for her in this moment. And, frankly, I’m feeling for Kim. I’m sorry she continues to be the topic of conversation.”
Erika reiterated her stance on the Rinna Ridiculousness: She encouraged Rinna to stick to the facts in Mexico, and that’s basically all she could do. Lisa, whose facts seem pretty “alternative,” has a lot of digging to do to climb out of this sh*t pile she created, but Erika hints that much more will unfold this season. So, stay tuned!
The episode was light and fun. I still wanted more, but at this point, I will pretty much take anything over the depressing and repetitive Season 6. Last year, Erika was the new girl, and Yolanda Foster ally who got caught up in the fray by sticking up for her good friend whenever she could. I’m happy by the prospect of a Lyme-free season. Thankfully, this season seems a lot better and Erika is looking forward to it as well.
Uh-oh, is it time for Tom Girardi to go to this room and be quiet? Erika Girardi‘s powerhouse attorney of a husband has been sued in federal court over accusations that he swindled his clients out of their share of $130 million dollars in settlement money!
According to court documents, the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star’s husband and his partner Robert Finnerty, of the law firm Girardi-Keese, are accused of defrauding claimants from a settlement won against Lockheed Martin.
Former client Paul Kranich is seeking $50 million dollars after alleging that Tom misused money that was awarded to him and former co-workers after they successfully sued Lockheed for exposing employees to harmful chemicals. (Note: To my knowledge no other claimants from that class-action suit have filed suits against Tom or his firm).
