It’s no surprise that Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi’s web of scandals, including their
scam divorce and legal issues, is the main event this year on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s really a story straight out of a horror movie. Tom allegedly embezzling millions from his clients, many of whom were victims of horrific accidents, to fund his over-the-top lifestyle. Erika says she’s not involved, but the questionable timing of her divorce says otherwise. Plus, Tom was depositing millions into her businesses that he earned from swindling his clients so she could fund her high-end fashions, over-the-top glam and virtually anything else she wanted in life that she didn’t have to work for.
Erika has maintained her innocence, but a recent Hulu documentary about the whole ordeal has plenty of people looking at her questionably. Yet, the word on the street is that Sutton Stracke is the only RHOBH who isn’t supporting Erika throughout all of this. Yes, the women who put people on trial for alleged hookups and #puppygate leaks are supporting a woman accused of being a total fraudster. It only further proves to me that the RHOBH ladies all help each other hide the real skeletons in their massive closets rather than confronting them on reality TV like they are PAID TO DO. Like, this is why Teresa Giudice is the Tom Brady of housewives. Ladies, take notes.
The divorce that shocked the world is FINALLY playing out on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi are no more. The mysterious marriage is coming to an end, and the insanity is only beginning. The other women have no idea what a ride they are in for this season. Erika can’t hide her life behind the curtain for too much longer. Too much is coming to light. It’s time to speak up or get out.
You have to wonder how legitimate Erika’s friendships are with Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley, & Lisa Rinna. They’re allegedly as thick as thieves, but they never saw this coming. They had no inkling whatsoever about this going down. What type of friend would keep their nearest and dearest in the dark like that? If anything, this might cause them to rethink their relationships with her. Will they hold her accountable for her secrecy?
Good news, everyone! Mikey Minden can stop pouring through Erika Jayne’s remaining wardrobe for an appropriate “moment” designed to confuse the prosecution with high-art glamour and questions about shoulder pads. We might be on standby because the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Birdbrain of Alcatraz star has hit another wall. Get your popcorn and cocktails, but longtime EJ fans may want to take a deep breath.
It really is like a movie script. A cinematic noir about stealing money from innocent victims and sinister charges of fraud. Filmed under the haze of Vaseline and the occasional waft of burned hair. Or it could be another day in the life of Erika. She’s suffering some radioactive fallout from the recent Hulu documentary covering tricky accounting methods with Tom Girardi. Erika is trying to get out of being on the hook for
most some of Tom’s debt and fighting to retain assets before the only public appearance on her calendar is the Pink Pig Swap Meet in Crawford County, Arkansas. On today’s show, the hills are alive with the sound of… attorneys running far, far away from Erika.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans are gearing up to watch Erika Jayne’s divorce from Tom Girardi and her ongoing legal battle unfold on the small screen. After almost a year of news headlines and shocking allegations, Erika just revealed to her friends during last week’s episode that she filed for divorce from Tom just days after gushing about him in Lake Tahoe. It came at a suspicious time, when a mounting lawsuit against Tom, accusing him of embezzling settlement funds owed to clients. And it looked like Erika was doing whatever she could to protect her XXPen$ive assets to avoid getting dragged down with her 81-year-old husband. But maybe a cheating scandal really did coincidentally drop at the same time as the lawsuit. Would I bet on that? Definitely not. In this instance, I’m with Sutton Stracke.
Erika has proclaimed she’s innocent and ignorant of all Tom’s shady business, which includes stealing money in millions from orphans and families of victims who died in horrific accidents. But the evidence shows otherwise. And a new ABC documentary on Hulu dubbed The Housewife and the Hustler doesn’t help Erika’s case that she didn’t fund her fabulous lifestyle off the back of literal victims. No doubt the feds are recording that documentary to watch too.
During the Season 11 Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premiere, Garcelle Beauvais sat down with Lisa Rinna to address how Lisa had treated Denise Richards the previous season. Denise denied having a sexual encounter with RHOBH alum Brandi Glanville but was repeatedly pushed to address the situation by her co-stars. When Rinna apologized, she thought everything was settled.
Not so fast, Rinna. Garcelle didn’t resume following Rinna on Instagram. “Rinna for me…it’s tough because I felt like she went to a place that was so unnecessary last season,” Garcelle stated.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is having one of its best seasons in recent years, mostly thanks to the addition of the lovable goofball named Kathy Hilton. Sutton Stracke and Crystal Kung Minkoff have been bringing the drama with their head-t0-head arguments. Kyle Richards and Garcelle Beauvais made up after last year’s battle. But Garcelle is still giving Lisa Rinna the runaround for how she treated her longtime friend Denise Richards last season. And there’s enough tea involving Erika Jayne’s divorce and legal drama for the saga to have its own show.
Rinna has been doing overtime to try to prove she’s a good friend, even though her delivery has been more than questionable at times. Outside of getting the cold shoulder with Garcelle, Rinna seems to be using her daughters yet again to give herself a storyline on RHOBH this year. This time, it has to do with her now 20-year-old daughter Amelia Gray Hamlin dating Kardashians insider (and 38-year-old man) Scott Disick. I’ve always thought Rinna wanted to follow Kris Jenner’s momager footsteps on her own family spinoff. But despite the relationship, it looks like she’ll have to keep working toward that.
It’s no secret Kyle Richards is the HBIC on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and her longevity earned that spot. Kyle’s storyline is usually sibling-related because Kyle requires someone who shares her DNA to have content on this show. Sister Kathy Hilton finally relented to pressure or the allure of pending anxiety attacks and has provided a bit of fresh air in an otherwise stagnant environment ahead of the latest season.
Kyle has seen “friends” come and go and a strong bond developed with certain ladies during her tenure. They are all moms, all wealthy, and all had bad legal issues in their recent past they wanted to hide. After some sketchy exits courtesy of Kyle and her bonded group’s
harassment curiosity regarding certain subjects, Kyle wants everyone to know they definitely aren’t ganging-up on people. It just looks like they’re ganging up on people.
It’s hard to believe it could get any worse, but the allegations facing Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi just keep piling up. Tom lost his license to practice law, his house and allegedly even his health amidst allegations that he withheld millions of dollars from his clients for years without fault. Many of those settlements were intended for victims of horrific car accidents, plane crashes and more, but instead ended up in EJ’s glam budget. Erika has denied any involvement, but the evidence so far shows otherwise. It’s been fishy since she first filed a divorce against Tom that looked to be a ploy to protected her
This season of RHOBH is just getting to the tip of the Girardi iceberg after Erika announced her divorce to her friends at the end of last week’s episode. Most of the cast, aside from Sutton Stracke, seem to be supporting Erika and believing her cries of innocence. But the feds aren’t letting her off the hook that easy.
