The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is having one of its most explosive seasons yet, mostly due to the tornado of scandals swirling around Erika Jayne. Erika’s divorce from Tom Girardi amidst his embezzlement claims is unfolding before our eyes. And Erika is either telling the truth or doing her best soap opera acting to make fans believe she wasn’t involved. Even though the evidence is sketchy and she’s still flying private. She seems to only worry about “woe is Erika” and not the millions allegedly stolen from the REAL victims in the story.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, even if Erika is telling the truth, she hasn’t released ONE statement about the victims. Not a single acknowledgment or apology. And the questions just keep piling up about the whole situation, from Tom’s health status to just how long this whole thing’s been going on. Thankfully, a judge ordered that victims can go after Erika for their payments. Considering the price tag on one of her massive rings could literally TRANSFORM the lives of these people and their families.
And RHOBH just released its mid-season trailer, via E!, proving the drama is just going to escalate even more. Pour a glass of rosé and get ready for a wild ride. F it, grab the whole bottle for this one. It’s been reported that Sutton Stracke is one of the only ladies questioning Erika’s role in this whole thing. Meanwhile, the mean girl gang is partying to her song “XXPen$ive” on yachts and not making her own it WHATSOEVER. Where’s that inquisitive attitude now, Lisa Rinna? And the new trailer shows that Sutton has a target on her back as far as Erika’s concerned, further showing she’s the real-life version of Cruella de Vil.
A lot of scenes in the trailer show everyone and their mother (or in this case, their husbands Mauricio Umansky and PK Kemsley) questioning the Tom situation. Even Kyle Richards FINALLY says that Erika has to get uncomfortable and them the truth, because the ladies “deserve to know.” HALLELUJAH. They seemed more concerned about Denise Richards’ sexuality than a literal embezzlement scandal for a while there. Finally some justice. And Garcelle Beauvais says what everyone’s thinking, “If what Tom did is true, then f*ck Tom.” YES YES YES.
And Erika is still playing the clueless housewife role. “If he stole the money, I’d like to know where it is,” she says. GIRL, IT’S IN YOUR CLOSET. Do you think that Tom only funded your life with the money he made legitly? Come on, get real.
As I said, Erika and Sutton go at it, and it’s not pretty. Sutton rightfully brings up allegations in the press about Erika and questions if she’s duping all of the ladies. “If you ever call me a liar again I’m coming for you,” Erika hisses, with even more Hollywood-level tears running down her face. This time, she seems to have remembered her waterproof mascara.
Sutton, the queen of crying, obviously has a breakdown about this, worried that Erika means more than “empty threats.” And this is when the real Ice Queen comes out. “Guess what bitch? I’m not threatening, I’m promising,” Erika says. GIRL, YOU SOUND JUST AS EVIL AS TOM. Erika is probably reeling at the way Bravo edited this trailer to exemplify her tone-deaf behavior amidst all of this. But she put it on herself — the last thing that will help your image is threatening your co-stars.
We also see the promised fight between Garcelle and Dorit Kemsley, and boy it’s a doozy. Garcelle literally says “f*ck you” right to Dorit’s face. That’s what you get for calling our girl inauthentic, Dorito. Go add some more sparkly clips to your hair and stay out of Garcelle’s way.
Even Sutton and Kyle go into it at the trailer, with Sutton hitting her where it hurts. “You talk too much like Dorit sometimes,” she says. OHHHH BOY. Sutton and Garcelle are showing they earned their diamonds this year and I am living for it. Looks like this town has a few new queen Bs and finally, their last names aren’t Richards or Vanderpump.
