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?
Someone might be in big trouble. A couple of months ago, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Erika Jayne, revealed she filed for divorce from her husband Tom Girardi after more than twenty years. Many people side-eyed this filing as it seemed to coincide with a pesky lawsuit Tom was dealing with. If you didn’t have sham divorce to protect assets on your 2020 bingo card, then you haven’t been paying attention.
This could be the one thing that makes Erika pack her latex and hair extensions and move quietly to Encino. Unfortunately for Erika, it HAS TO DO WITH TOM. Shady business deals and sketchy wallets are not new to RHOBH fans because, Dorit Kemsley, but this one takes the cake. Erika is not having a good holiday season thus far and she’s about to partake in some tricky legal situations. Today we will learn about embezzlement.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Ring-a-ding-dong, Karma is dropping off some early holiday gifts. And this one is a DOOZY. Bravo fans got a lesson in what not to do this year. The clock struck 15 minutes for both Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute of Vanderpump Rules fame. Chances are, Vanderpump Rules will be the only fame these two are familiar with due to their little police report stunt involving former SURver Faith Stowers.
Stassi and Kristen were canned amid accusations of racism. Faith took the baton and started running with it. She claimed Pump Rules lacked diversity (duh). She directly attacked Lisa Vanderpump, which was
foolish interesting. It seemed Faith was on a one-woman mission to disparage the show that put her name on the reality television roster. In a shocking turn of events, while Stassi and Kristen work day and night to crawl back to your tv, Faith might be a couple of laps ahead.
Vanderpump Rules didn’t make Faith Stowers famous, but honey she tried. Faith was never exactly a regular, but she did kind of swing on Lala Kent’s coattails. Unfortunately for the former waitress, it was swinging from Jax Taylor’s peen that originally got her name in the media. Hollywood has tales of the casting couch, but SUR has tales about the casting booth.
While Faith never made it #bigbybravo, she did manage to almost take down the entire show. Faith found herself the victim of a false-police report filed by geniuses Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute. As a result, Stassi and Kristen saw their 15 minutes of fame and their paychecks fly out the door. Now Faith is plotting the ultimate revenge, the final straw, the ace in the hole… Pump Rules is clinging to life thanks to major cast changes and the pandemic. The family has been called in to pay their respects, while Faith waits in the wings with her back-up plan.
Bless her damn heart. Brandi Glanville still doesn’t have a diamond. After slapping Lisa Vanderpump and causing multiple controversies on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Brandi found herself out of a job. The second she received a #pinkslipbybravo, Brandi started a campaign to try and get her gig back. Always finding herself in rather questionable situations, it seemed Brandi’s only shot was to create drama with people still actively employed on the show.
Most of the cast treated Brandi like a pariah, until they needed her for something. That “something” was a scandalous storyline with Denise Richards to pump up the drama on an otherwise lame season. In an attempt to throw the scent off the alleged affair with Brandi, Denise implied Brandi hooked up with yet another cast member. While we still don’t know if that is a fact, what we do know is it wasn’t Kim Richards. Thank God.
Dana Wilkey was not featured on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for very long, but what she lacked in screen time, she made up with tiny iconic moments. Despite efforts to weave herself into the tapestry of the group, Dana never reached “friend of” status, but many viewers will never forget Dana and her
desperation $25,000k sunglasses.
After her brief stint on RHBOH, Dana caught some legal cases. She was sued for fraud in 2011 and indicted on fraud charges in 2014. Accusations included conspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud and aiding and abetting, and false statements to government agents. Sounds like she would fit in with most cast members, amirite? Well, Dana finally found a way to become a Housewife – even if it was just for one glorious night.
Pretty much all I remember about America’s Next Top Model is that Shandi Sullivan had sex with someone who wasn’t her boyfriend in a hot tub night one. I can’t seem to remember important dates or facts but this is somehow burned in my memory bank. The real point, however, is that I didn’t watch ANTM. That reason was Tyra Banks.
In the early years of ANTM she also had a talk show, Tyra. It was focused on “women’s issues” and often featured women from ANTM. That way, Tyra could make Tyra all about herself. Now, for whatever reason, she’s hosting Dancing With the Stars and banning any and all Housewives.
Vanderpump Rules was once the best show on Bravo. Of course, THAT’S MY OPINION!!! (Trademark Tamra Judge). But seriously, it was! Who would have thought following hot Survers around a sexy unique restaurant would have been a good idea? Lisa Vanderpump – that’s who. The woman is some sort of Bobby Fischer genius reality TV Svengali.
LVP didn’t write the whole story, but she knew Scheana Marie’s affair with Brandi Glanville’s D-List ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian, would be the crossover of crossovers. Season after season the Pump Rules cast never stopped surprising us with their awful misdeeds and sometimes instant confessions. The content was wild and entertaining. But under the surface were some harsh truths and finally, this year, there was a reckoning. Day one stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired for racist actions. Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were fired for using racial slurs. Now that the “reality” of these personas has been exposed, where does it go from here?
