The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills might be in between seasons, but the trainwreck that is Erika Jayne’s life continues to be filled with drama. And that’s putting aside her recent battle with COVID-19. Erika’s soon-to-be ex-husband Tom Girardi is still dealing with bankruptcy as well as accusations that he embezzled millions of dollars from his clients.
Erika is trying to avoid any repercussions whatsoever, even though it looks like Tom used the money he allegedly stole from victims to fund her over-the-top lifestyle. Reports indicate Tom’s firm is $101 million in debt, and Erika’s been hit with a personal $25 million lawsuit. Her delusional self is going to have to sell a whole lot of hair extensions to pay that off. Or make a second attempt to sell unnecessary outfits from her multiple closets.
The evidence surrounding Tom’s alleged business practice is truly harrowing. He’s been accused of mishandling client funds for decades, with victims including orphans, burn victims, and more. It’s straight-up movie villain stuff. And Erika only cares about Erika — she’s like Jesus on the cross in her eyes. But she’s doing just fine in her million-dollar house while she dreams up a comeback for her wannabe pop star career. Meanwhile, the real victims have been spending years trying to get the money they desperately need. It makes me sick.
As the case continues, Radar Online reports that lawyers representing Tom’s alleged victims have subpoenaed Bravo and the RHOBH producers seeking information about Erika, Tom, and more. It’s suspected that they are looking for details about the checks Bravo is cutting Erika for her appearance on the show. If Andy Cohen’s hints are any indication, Erika makes a pretty nice chunk of change for her reality TV career. Is it enough to fund the lifestyle she was living when she first came on the show? Absolutely not.
Legal documents filed by the firm representing the victims, Edelson PC, state that all parties are “engaged in an effort to resolve potential disputes. So Bravo isn’t messing around when the feds are involved. What’s even more interesting is that the documents state that Erika is set to be deposed as part of the ongoing investigation in the future. Lisa Rinna better watch out, she could be next.
