Season 11 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills may be over, but the dumpster fire of legal and financial woes continues for Erika Jayne. Her estranged husband, Tom Girardi, stands accused of allegedly embezzling from his legal clients. Tom reportedly loaned his pop-star wannabe wife $20 million from his law firm, Girardi Keese. The funds supposedly were transferred to EJ Global, which is Erika’s company. Erika denied that claim during Part 4 of the RHOBH reunion.
Erika is being sued for $25 million by the trustee in charge of the Girardi Keese case. The trustee claimed that Erika was aware that her extravagant lifestyle was being paid for by Girardi Keese. Well, someone had to pony up $40,000 monthly for her glam squad.
I still wonder why Erika signed on for Season 11 of RHOBH with all this legal drama swirling around her. Erika defended herself on Twitter against fans who wanted her to quit the show. “God forbid I fight for myself. Stop thinking I’ll quit just because you think I should,” she tweeted. “F–k that.” We all know that Erika gives zero of those. And now Bravo producers have been subpoenaed to obtain unaired footage from Season 11.
Erika’s salary for appearing on the show is reportedly $600,000. She revealed that she gave every one of her paychecks to Tom. That was clearly a huge mistake. Now that Erika has started dating, she is looking for a man with cash. Duh.
Well, one Bravo superfan is sounding off about Erika. Jerry O’Connell is a Watch What Happens Live regular, as is wife, model and actress Rebecca Romijn. According to Deadline, Jerry joined the The Talk as the first ever permanent male co-host.
But Jerry has never been shy about dishing the dirt on Bravolebrities. Jerry revealed that he likes to role-play as Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Joe Giudice in the bedroom. That is just TMI! Jerry and Rebecca revealed that RHOBH alum Brandi Glanville once ignored them at an event. Jerry even stated that Leah McSweeney “may be the best rookie housewife of all time.” No word on how Jerry felt about last season of Real Housewives of New York, and it’s cancelled reunion.
In a video clip from WWHL that was shared on the show’s Twitter page, Jerry and host Andy Cohen discussed Erika’s behavior at the reunion. Andy asked, “What is the number one thing that you want to hear from her coming up?”
“I want to hear the victims talked about,” Jerry responded. “Not about… what…how much of a…a disturbance this has been for Erika. I want to hear about the victims.” Amen to that.
During Part 3 of the reunion, Andy came at Erika for not showing more compassion for the actual victims. Erika said that she did, but obviously that never happened. She finally said that she would like the victims to be remedied. That is still very different from showing true empathy, but I guess that is all that RHOBH viewers are going to get.
