It’s hard to watch the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills continue to give Erika Jayne such an easy ride when it comes to the atrocious allegations facing her soon-to-be ex-husband Tom Girardi. Tom’s accused of swindling millions from victims of nightmare-level accidents to fund EJ’s wannabe pop career. And when years of embezzlement accusations came ahead, Erika ran for the hills, filing a shady divorce against Tom and doing anything to protect her assets. And her crew is giving her a pass — one they definitely didn’t grant to Denise Richards when the Brandi Glanville hookup allegations arose last season.
I’m just waiting for Sutton Stracke to really make Erika “own it” this season on RHOBH, because it’s obvious her sidekick Lisa Rinna isn’t going to do it. Like, Erika’s behavior is speaking for itself. She’s still flying private and acting like the main character in a soap opera while actively being investigated by the feds. Erika’s 100 times more worried about the Bravo editors than she is about the actual victims her husband allegedly stole millions from to fund her ridiculous lifestyle. Thankfully, a judge has ruled that victims can go after Erika to get the money they’re due. As she’s said, the ice queen can take it. So prove it, boo.
And her RHOBH co-stars, old and new, still aren’t getting it. In the most recent act of tone-deafness, Kyle Richards, Rinna and boring old Teddi Mellencamp posted a video of them partying on a yacht to EJ’s wannabe “hit” “XXPen$ive.” Captured by @bravosnarkside on Instagram, the ladies are singing along to the lyrics that literally talk about how “expensive” it is to be Erika Jayne. Apparently, so expensive, it can’t be done legally. Sigh.
And fans in the comments were not holding back to condemn the girls for the insensitive move. “Embarrassed for them,” one viewer wrote. “Terrible judgment. And timing,” another said. “They. Just. Don’t. Get. It,” another wrote. Exactly, nothing else needs to be said. As another viewer so eloquently wrote, the girls should be “mortified” for this move.
Erika also reposted the video on her page with the words, “tell me you have friends who’ll stick by your ass through the hard times without telling me.” EXCUSE ME? Yeah maybe this would be cute if Erika’s divorce wasn’t a total ploy to protect whatever money she has left from Tom. Dorit Kemsley was also at the celebration for Teddi’s 40th birthday, but was smart enough to hide from the video camera, unlike her friends. After all, she knows very well about the “orphans and widows” of it all.
Another commenter wrote, “Andy Cohen should make the Jackholes of the Week for this display.” More like Jackholes of the Year. “How do they not get it?” another fan wrote. This is a clear display of the haves, and the have-nots. “I don’t understand the support for Erika,” a viewer commented. I don’t either, but it’s clear from this season of RHOBH and the various comments the ladies have made in the press that they protect one of their own.
Many fans also were appalled that none of the ladies were sticking up for the victims. “This is very distasteful,” someone wrote. This is exactly why I can’t help but stan Sutton this season, despite her own questionable moves. At least she has the balls to tell Erika to her face how horrible she looks throughout all of this.
