Real Housewives of Beverly Hills feels so far away, and yet like it happened just yesterday. This last season of RHOBH carried on the YEARS-long tradition of creating one storyline for the whole season, designed to humiliate ONE woman. Last year it was Lisa Vanderpump and puppy gate. The year before was Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave (which in hindsight, I don’t mind that one so much). The year before that was Erika Girardi and panty-gate. This year it was Denise Fu**ing Richards and an ALLEGED sexual encounter, with RHOBH’s self-proclaimed truth teller, Brandi Glanville.
Do you want to revisit any of those seasons? I don’t. Seasons that beat to death a single story are totally unenjoyable. Housewives works best, IMHO, when the show features a truly ensemble cast. Real Housewives of New York City, Atlanta, and Salt Lake City even seem to understand this implicitly. Plus, these series, along with New Jersey, Potomac, Dallas and yes, Orange County have women who are willing to show their lives. RHOBH doesn’t do either of these things and yet, it was the most-watched series in the franchise.
As we head into the Christmas holiday, one person you won’t find decking the halls is Erika Jayne. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Catch Tom If You Can star would probably rather deck her soon-to-be ex-husband. Tom Girardi and Erika are in major trouble and Erika is doing the most to try and get out of it. After filing for divorce from Big Tommy, some very nasty scandals about Tom’s and Erika’s ALLEGED embezzling have emerged.
If you thought stealing money from innocent people was a drag, imagine telling the world an 81-year-old man is cheating on you. The crown is heavy darling, and you never wore it. Unsavory situations like assets being frozen, accidentally misplacing $2 million, and forced bankruptcy have lead Erika to… selling her clothes online so she can buy wig glue. Yes, Erika has sold things before, but never under the guise of desperation. And if you were waiting for a Chagall to pop up for the reasonable price of $74, you will have to continue waiting. Chicago courts have popped Erika’s pop up shop.
Erika Jayne’s publicist leaked an “inside source “claimed that Erika Jayne dumped Tom Girardi due to his many infidelities. Apparently, she ignored it for years, but now she’s bothered by it. Gee, I wonder why? Could it be because the money dried up and she’s trying to escape his debts?
Also, who would have ever thought that Tom was still… ummm…. active in that way? Well, when we shared that story about Tom’s alleged affairs, many commenters weren’t believing the allegations. Well, Erika is probably reading most of those comments. She dropped some receipts herself. Well, then she deleted them, but, thankfully someone captured a screenshot.
When Garcelle Beauvais asked Erika Jayne about her sex life with husband Tom Girardi on the most recent season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Erika replied “It’s OK,” which reminded me of when Candiace Dillard said her sex life with her man Chris Bassett was “decent” during the Real Housewives of Potomac Season 4 reunion.
Then, she told Garcelle, “Is it 20 year old f*cking all day long? No.” When Garcelle followed up with “But, do you want that,” Erika said, “Not really.” Well, apparently, Tom did. Or at least that’s the story
that Erika planted that “inside sources” are going with today.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne has to be regretting her song “XXpen$ive” these days, right? Almost every article slamming her and her lawyer husband Tom Girardi for their questionable finances (and ethics) is citing that song and Erika’s other claims about her lavish lifestyle.
She has even said that she spends $40K on glam every single month. Most of us were questioning if that was actually worth it. News flash: it’s not. Especially since her husband had been withholding money from his clients, who were owed money after losing family members in airplane crashes, explosions, and boating accidents. Basically, Tom was taking money from orphans, widows, and widowers to fund Erika’s ridiculous costume budget and her paid “friends” from her glam squad.
There is major trouble afoot on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: What Ever Happened To Erika Jayne? Lots of legal issues are brewing and possible criminal charges are looming. Also, the show is in production which means viewers will get a glimpse of what everyone is talking about, even though they won’t be talking about it. But that’s okay because we are going to MENTION IT ALL. Erika Jayne and estranged husband Tom Girardi might have knocked Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers off the Worst Scammers of All Time pedestal.
Vicki and Brooks held that title for years, because sympathy casseroles were a thing. But Tom and Erika’s recent accusations of embezzlement and fraud blow them out of the water. So what happens when you are accused of stealing money from plane crash and burn victims? When your assets are frozen amid questionable divorce filings and you are 30 seconds away from forced bankruptcy? Honey, you start selling your shit. And that’s exactly what Erika is doing. Anyone need a gently used Gucci tracksuit with faint notes of Jean Nate and desperation?
If the old saying, “where there’s smoke, there’s fire” is true, then Tom Girardi’s world is hot. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Erin Brokeabitch star, Erika Jayne, filed for divorce from Tom and basically triggered an avalanche. Tom gained notoriety in 1996 when he was instrumental in winning the largest settlement in a direct-action lawsuit. This man literally brought Pacific Gas and Electric to their proverbial knees for the little guy and won $460 million for 650 residents who were essentially being poisoned. To say Tom was admired and celebrated is an understatement and he gained the reputation of fighting for people who couldn’t fight for themselves.
I was personally thrilled when Big Tommy showed up on RHOBH. Cute, little, old Tom. He was funny and personable, seemed to support Erika’s dalliances in pop music. But Tom’s “support” might have gone too far. It’s kind of starting to look like this great man who fought so hard for “the people” was actually stealing money from “the people”. ALLEGEDLY. Numerous cases have been lodged against Tom implying he took money to fund his and Erika’s lavish lifestyle. Now another case has been uncovered regarding Tom’s business with PG&E, but this time the little guy was left out.
Okay guys, grab your blankie and maybe a cocktail because this is officially ugly. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Terms of Embezzlement star, Erika Jayne, has not only ended her marriage, her “career” could be over too. Erika’s estranged husband, Tom Girardi is under fire for stealing money from plane crash victims and ALLEGEDLY siphoning it to his bride’s corporate account.
Let’s recap. We have Tom, not paying for office equipment. Tom is also not paying his law partner. And Tom definitely didn’t pay the plaintiffs who lost family members in a horrible tragedy. By week’s end, I suspect we will be discussing how his federal case turned into a criminal case. But wait! Is all of this a result of an older man who isn’t well? Could Big Tommy be suffering from an undisclosed illness that has impacted his decision-making abilities? His attorneys want you to think so. Now Tom’s health is being called into question over the Boeing suit. Anyone know the diagnosis code for gluttony?
