Crystal Kung Minkoff Believes “Defending Victims Is Very Easy” In Tom Girardi Situation Despite Maintaining Friendship With Erika Jayne

I’m excited that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is returning to beef up my weekly TV rotation. However, the teasers for Season 12 don’t look all that promising to me. It seems like the cast is just going to completely blow over the Erika Jayne of it all from last season. They’ll focus on trivial drama as always — this time it seems like it’ll be Kathy Hilton playing the villain. Sure, they’ll dig into some surface stuff on Erika, even though her lawsuits and other harrowing allegations are still very much relevant. Thankfully, Sutton Stracke and Garcelle Beauvais are the only two that won’t let her get away with it. Well, at least they aren’t afraid to put themselves on the line just to ask her simple questions.

Erika is still proudly only repping Erika, she’s literally told us multiple times. Her bad behavior is exemplified in a scene from the RHOBH trailer when she accuses Crystal Kung Minkoff of thinking it’s “cool” to side with the victims. Let’s remember that Tom Girardi is accused of embezzling millions from victims of horrific accidents. Erika is acting like it’s ludicrous to be anything other than #TeamIceQueen. Now, just ahead of the Season 12 premiere, Crystal has responded to the issue.

Crystal referred to herself as “the coolest” when Page Six brought up the cringy Erika moment from the trailer. Crystal is guilty of playing the fence and being more passive when it comes to Erika. However, she is the newbie of the group — Lisa Rinna and Kyle Richards should really be making their friend “own it”. However, Crystal says it’s easy to support the helpless victims affected (allegedly). “In this situation, defending victims is very easy. So it doesn’t bother me,” she said. Erika’s going to take that as some attack, so Crystal better watch her back.

Even though Crystal is supporting Tom’s alleged victims, she still considers Erika a friend. From what I’ve seen on TV, Erika seemingly has no redeeming qualities as a friend. I really think her RHOBH co-stars are under a Pretty Mess spell or something. Crystal says Erika was supportive of her during the upcoming season when Crystal gets into it with some of the other ladies. “All I will say is that my current friendship with Erika does not affect how I feel about the victims and what they’ve been through,” she said. “That’s always No. 1 for me.” Baby steps, I guess. Erika’s behavior is just embarrassing.

Crystal then went on to claim that Erika is actually pretty good at being open for the camera. We can agree to disagree on that one. She also thinks Erika regrets the way she treated some of her co-stars. “The night she was yelling at me and the girls, she wanted to take that back,” Crystal says. “Everyone has their own regrets.” Something tells me Erika has no regrets throwing Garcelle’s book in the trash or threatening Sutton last season. I’ll believe Erika is a reformed person as soon as I’ll believe that Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle will ever be friends again. Here’s a tip, EJ: actions speak louder than words.
