Dorit Reveals That ‘Pantygate’ Is Her Biggest RHOBH Regret

Do I seriously miss the panty-gate days of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? I mean, no. That’s not possible. But what else have the women brought us since? I’ll wait. And please, for the love of everything, do not mention puppy-gate. That one left us Vanderpump-less and with Teddi Mellencamp to spare. I don’t even particularly stan LVP, but at least she brought something to the table!

Will the upcoming season 11 of RHOBH finally bring some interest? Honestly, it’s looking pretty good. From the sounds of it, Sutton Stracke is doing some heavy lifting to get us all the Erika Jayne divorce dirt we deserve. The trailer for the season also shows Dorit Kemsely calling out Tom Girardi’s alleged embezzlement from “widows and orphans.” Let’s keep fingers crossed for some real intrigue!

Taylor Armstrong

The premier of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 11 is just around the corner. Thanks to alleged fraudster Erika Chahoy Girardi Jayne, we actually might have a show on our hands. Erika joined the franchise in 2015, but this will be her first time with a storyline. Congrats, Erika! Sutton Stracke will finally hold a diamond and give fashion advice on pleated leather pants. We’ll also see two relatively new faces.

Crystal Kung Minkoff is coming on board and rumor has it,  she won’t be a wallflower. Because wallflowers wilt in Beverly Hills. Kathy Hilton is an enigma, wrapped in Valentino and actual cash. She’s also Kyle Richards’ older sister who doesn’t take any of Kyle’s shit. Recently RHOBH alum Taylor Armstrong spoke on Kathy’s new gig and hinted it might not be all puppies and bags of diamonds between Kath and Kyle this season.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - Season 11

Put on your diamonds and pour the rosé — the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are headed back to our TV screens very soon. Season 11 will be without Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and Denise Richards. Sutton Stracke finally got a diamond, and is the one who we will see go all-in on Erika Jayne about her shady divorce and husband’s legal problems. Kyle Richards will be joined by her sister. No, unfortunately not Kim RichardsKathy Hilton will be the newest friend-of. And the newest housewife, Crystal Kung Minkoff, will be thrown into the mix. It’s gearing up to be a big season after last year’s flop. Or as I like to call it, Brandi Glanville’s final nail in the Bravo coffin.

Season 11 is set to premiere May 19, and the first trailer is amping up the drama. To no surprise, it centers around Erika and Tom Girardi’s legal issues, where they’re being accused of embezzling settlements from victims of plane crashes, car accidents and more. Thanks to Garcelle Beauvais, we know Sutton is the only one who doesn’t “support” Erika throughout their divorce. But loyalty is a whole other thing in Beverly Hills so that probably mean’s she is just questioning Erika’s involvement like the rest of the world. Outside of the EJ saga, we’ll see Lisa Rinna grapple with the possibility of becoming a Kardashian in-law. Dorit Kemsley and the always entertaining PK Kemsley will be making a return as well.

Erika Jayne Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

We’re nearing the premiere of Season 11 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and it looks like it’ll center around Erika Jayne’s mounting legal issues. Her soon-to-be ex-husband Tom Girardi is facing federal fraud and embezzlement accusations that led to him losing his legal license. And EJ is claiming to have no involvement, even though the timing of her divorce makes it seem like she was trying to protect her assets rather than expose Big Tommy for a cheating scandal. While it sounds like most of the RHOBH ladies will sweep the situation under the rug, the newest diamond holder Sutton Stracke will apparently be doing God’s work and questioning Erika about her involvement.

Tom’s been accused of embezzling unpaid settlement funds to hundreds of victims of plane crashes, car accidents, explosions and more, totaling more than $26 million. But how else was he going to pay for Mrs. Girardi’s wannabe pop star career for $40k a month on glam? Erika is not sticking by her man, even though evidence points that she might have been more involved than she leads on. The whole thing leaves a bad taste in my mouth, and Lisa Vanderpump’s too.

Erika Jayne Tom Girardi RHOBH Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills-4

Season 11 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is gearing up to be explosive as ever. And this time around, it’s without Brandi Glanville and Camille Grammer stirring the pot. Erika Jayne will finally have an interesting storyline on the show, but unfortunately, it’s due to her soon-to-be ex-husband Tom Girardi’s shady business. Tom is facing fraud and embezzlement charges and is accused of misappropriating millions in client funds to support he and EJ’s XXPen$ive lifestyle.

Miss Erika Girardi is proclaiming that she’s open and honest about the situation on RHOBH, but who even knows what the truth is. We saw Erika in the first trailer for Season 11 proclaiming that she had no knowledge of Tom’s shady legal matters. But some people, especially the newest diamond holder Sutton Stracke, aren’t buying it.

Erika Jayne Tom Girardi RHOBH Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills-4

Many Housewives face legal issues, but none have had levels of disgust quite like Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi. In the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 11 trailer, Erika repeatedly denied knowledge of Tom’s alleged tricky bookkeeping that may or may not have funded her “music career”. Erika also filed for divorce from Big Tommy right before the shit hit the fan, which raised some eyebrows. Fun fact: Erika has been on the Board of Directors at GIRARDI FINANCIAL since 1999, which doesn’t help her cries of “Only HE knows…” Perhaps Sutton Stracke could bring this up next time Erika bares her teeth.

Victims of Tom’s supposed swindling don’t have the luxury of posting lingerie shots on Insta and moving into $1.5 million homes. Tom has been forced into bankruptcy in an effort to discharge his debts, but one former client isn’t backing down. A victim of the PG&E gas explosion who was burned over 90% of his body now adds his name to the long list of people wanting Tom to pay the piper.

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave Real Housewives of Beverly Hills RHOBH

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is an enigma, wrapped in 500 calorie a day servings and boredom. Bravo fans don’t usually get what they ask for, but when Teddi was unceremoniously dropped from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, sighs of thanks were heard across the land. It would be difficult to pin down only one reason Teddi was fired, but a scandal surrounding her All In By Teddi diet program certainly didn’t help.

Teddi’s departure from RHOBH didn’t impact the flow of the show because she didn’t offer much aside from being Kyle Richards’ sidekick. But lack of substance isn’t holding Teddi back! It seems she has been busy with her free time and may or may not return to reality television! It’s what we’ve all been waiting for – said no one ever. Now Teddi catches everyone up on her new plans and what’s in store for taking All your money In by Teddi going forward.

Teresa Giudice Andy Cohen

In recent months, Real Housewives viewers have been asking Andy Cohen and Bravo to fire Erika Jayne and Jen Shah for the “alleged” involvement in illegal activities.

Nevertheless, a Bravo reality TV star with a history of legal trouble is nothing new at this point. Teresa Giudice and her now-ex-husband served separate prison sentences for multiple counts of fraud. And ever since the legal issues became public fodder, Teresa’s legal issues have become the backbone of Real Housewives of New Jersey, aka The Teresa Giudice Show.
