Lawsuits, lawsuits! Get your piping hot lawsuits! Honestly, does anyone not have a lawsuit pending on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Even Denise Richards is getting in on the fun with a cease and desist this season! Now I know it’s not technically a lawsuit but it’s one step away.
But really, it’s kind of shocking how hard the cast is going in on Denise this season about not being who she says she is. Lisa Rinna might want Denise to “own it”. But if they are going to drag Denise for not “owning it”, they need to do some inventory of their own
messes lives. It’s well known that Kyle Richards’ husband, Mauricio Umansky, had a massive lawsuit against him. Let us not forget our scam queen, Dorit Kemsley and husband PK Kemsley. Their gambling debts cannot go unnoticed! And finally, Erika Jayne’s husband, Tom Girardi has multiple suits against him. Shall we own that, ladies?
Luckily for Erika and Tom, at least one of those lawsuits is going away. According to The Blast, GS1 security company has dropped their claim against Tom for unpaid security bills. Given that Tom already had a much larger lawsuit against him, you might have missed this one entirely. We reported on it back in May but the piddly $53,000 GS1 was seeking is kind of a drop in the bucket to a rich man like Tom. At least as far as lawsuits go.
But back to the story. GS1 claims that they were hired by Tom in 2018 to provide security for their Pasadena home. Tom was set to pay $39/hour for the services, which seems kind of low to me. But what do I know about needing security? I can barely even grasp social security.

Anyway, GS1 claims Tom stopped paying his bill in September of 2019 but they continued services through January 31, 2020. The suit brought by GS1 says, “Defendant, without cause, stopped paying Plaintiff’s bill, and, on January 31, 2020, upon defendant’s breach of the agreement, Plaintiff ceased providing armed guard service. Defendant did not offer explanation for ceasing to pay as required by the terms of the agreement.” It continues, “Further, ‘plaintiff provided armed guard service from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. at the same rate of $39 per hour.’” The lawsuit was looking for the unpaid balance of $53,859 plus interest.
Now GS1 has dismissed all claims but have left the door somewhat open. Apparently, they filed the dismissal without prejudice, which mean they can refile the claim at a later date.
Are we going to talk about it on RHOBH? Doubtful. But at least it would give Erika a storyline for once.
