There has been gossip going around about a West Coast Housewife who is secretly separated from her husband Now, we know who that blind item was (probably) referring to: Erika Jayne.
After 21 years of marriage to Tom Girardi, she’s done.
Erika told E! News, “After much consideration, I have decided to end my marriage to Tom Girardi.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member insisted, “This is not a step taken lightly or easily. I have great love and respect for Tom and for our years and the lives we built together.”

Erika continued, “It is my absolute wish to proceed through this process with respect and with the privacy that both Tom and I deserved. I request others give us that privacy as well.” Girl, you’re on a reality show full of people who love trashing other people’s marriages. Good luck with getting that privacy.
Erika didn’t mention why she’s filing for divorce, but Tom has been involved in many lawsuits throughout recent years. And, no, I’m not referring to the cases he’s worked as a lawyer. He’s been sued many times over.

After years of bankrolling Erika’s life, the buck stops here. Or does it? In 2017, Erika revealed that they didn’t even sign a prenup. She said, “Let me tell you something, let me be very clear. I’m married to a very powerful lawyer. A prenup wouldn’t stand in his way anyway…It’s gonna be all Tom’s way, I assure you. He’ll rip that piece of paper to shreds in two seconds!” I guess we will see how that ends up.
Given all of Tom’s legal battles and the fact that Erika has been earning her own money as a Housewife with side hustles, it’s not too surprising that she wants out of
his debt this marriage.

E! News also shared a recent quote from Erika: “I mean, I’m tired of having to justify my 20-year marriage. Go get a 20-year marriage, then come f–king talk to me.” Now what, Erika?
I guess we now know why he never went to see her in Chicago on Broadway. And, perhaps, this explains Erika’s very angry demeanor lately.
