Grab your thigh-high boots y’all because we are now KNEE-DEEP in this mess. If you thought a lack of blending skills was Erika Jayne’s main problem, buckle up. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Illegally Blonde and The Housewife and the Hustler star is currently on hold at Craig Conover’s law office because her attorneys ran away. But don’t worry about Erika because a whole SLEW of other lawyers are plenty interested in what she’s up to.
Arguably the most famous Richards RHOBH has spawned is now Ronald Richards, the attorney assigned to Erika’s case to investigate her every hiss and eye roll. Emily D. Baker is another lawyer who has taken a keen interest in Erika and Tom Girardi’s massive judicial issues. And then we have Jay Edelson, of Edelson PC. Jay’s firm filed a class action lawsuit against Tom on behalf of plane crash victims duped out of settlement money. Edelson PC is determined to prove Erika’s involvement in Tom’s charades, despite her denial of any wrongdoings. According to Jay, we’re about to find out who the sniper from the side really is.
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.
Depending on what source you’re using, Tom Girardi is either suffering the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease or using the diagnosis as a way to circumvent being responsible for embezzling a lot of money. Erika Jayne’s soon-to-be ex is in a world of hurt and he is bringing his wife down with him. Viewers are beginning to get a glimpse of the legal dramatics Erika is about to enjoy on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The discovery of Tom’s illness was recently brought into play by his team of defense attorneys who requested to place his brother, Robert Girardi, into a conservator position because of Tom’s declining health. The prosecution is said to be challenging this tactic, as the timing could be interpreted as suspicious. The true nature of Tom’s status is to be determined, but it doesn’t negate the fact that he has been seemingly defrauding clients for years. This week Tom went to court to try and regain control of the decisions made on his behalf.
Welp, she tried. Another swing and a miss in the game of life that is Erika Jayne. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is probably regretting any and all references to being XXPEN$IVE, and it might be time to pay the piper. Erika and Tom Girardi are in a heap of trouble. Tom managed to screw over some former clients in sensitive positions while he and Erika peed in gold toilets and propped Chagalls against the dining room wall.
Erika has been running into a lot of obstacles since she and Tom were both implicated in an embezzlement scheme involving the nonpayment of Tom’s clients. They are also being accused of using their divorce as a cover to hide assets to prevent them from being seized in the name of debt collection. Erika is doing everything she can to prevent her “household items” from being nabbed so widows and orphans can eat. Despite EJ’s efforts to block further investigation, the judge said, “How many fucks do I give? NONE, NOT ONE ZERO ZERO DONE!”
Erika Jayne is getting an interesting edit thus far on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. If I were the type of person who analyzes such things, and to be clear, I am the type of person who analyzes such things, I would almost say production is teasing the viewing audience. Right now we’re getting into the nitty-gritty of Season 11 and about to witness the Haus of Girardi, where they “communicate through costume” for the reasonable price of 40 grand a month, collapse.
Poor EJ thought it was depressing to eat dinner with Tom Girardi every night…
Karma Life has a way of throwing curveballs into plans and watching Tom eat steak was about to start sounding pretty good. Legal battles fans have been discussing for months are about to get an honorary diamond, and the media is all over Tom and Erika’s downfall. Now we learn Erika is concerned about “sensitive information” being leaked amid the trials. So the person who has previously faulted others for not being open, is requesting a gag order.
Real Housewives of Miami was a great show and according to the folks at the Peacock network, it’s about to come back. We haven’t had a solid confirmation on the current cast, but it seems sealed in stone that original RHOM star Lea Black will not be on board. But if you miss the lilting sound of her laughter, Lea does appear quite often on Sirius radio with former Flipping Out star, Jeff Lewis.
Lea is married to a very high-powered attorney and actually met her husband when she was a juror on a trial. Naturally she may take more than your average level of interest in Housewives who are involved in legal disputes. After months of watching people take down Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne, Lea is viewing the entire ordeal with a sympathetic eye. Recently, Lea attempted to use her powers of influence in an effort to build support for Erika’s current plight. To be fair, Lea is used to rooting for the
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans are in luck this season because most people are watching and waiting for Erika Jayne’s potential downfall. While many, make that most, of our Housewives are no stranger to the legal system, Erika and Tom Girardi’s fall from grace has been by far the most unsettling. They didn’t just forget to pay taxes or forge signatures on mortgage loans, Tom allegedly did some very nasty things to some very needy clients.
As a result, Tom lost his job and his reputation. Erika lost her main check, and her nonchalant attitude in the wake of people’s suffering has not won her any fans. Now we’re watching the beginning of the end play out on RHOBH and we have some pretty specific timelines to go by. Erika filed for divorce in November 2020 and implied it was due to Big Tommy’s wandering eye – but technology and the fact that she’s on a tv show is putting holes in that theory.
Kelly Dodd is not known for mincing words, and that’s basically what makes her popular with certain people. She has been on Real Housewives of Orange County since Season 11, and the lack of filter on her mouth combined with her lack of patience for Vicki Gunvalson endeared to her a large audience. Kelly has weathered several storms on camera, including quite possibly the most erratic weather system that appears at least once a year, Shannon Storms Beador.
Kelly makes a point of letting people know exactly what’s on her mind and it often works against her. She goes for shock value and doesn’t care if the results place her in an unflattering light. Either way, it keeps her name in people’s mouths, which makes Andy Cohen happy. That said, her problematic personality does lend itself to humor… sometimes. She might not be drowning in pesky things like facts, but she can be funny. Recently Kelly and her husband have been traveling on the East Coast and chilling with friends. But don’t worry, she packed
her mask the sarcasm in a carry-on bag.
