Before 2019, Felicity Huffman was best known as one of America’s most celebrated actresses. The Emmy Award winner and Academy Award nominee was renowned for her iconic role as Lynette Scavo on the campy television show Desperate Housewives. And for her touching turn as a transgender woman in the film Transamerica.
In March of this year, Felicity took on a role she probably never imagined she would be playing. She became the face of the notorious college admissions scandal, along with actress Lori Loughlin. Felicity pled guilty to fraud for paying $15,000 to boost her daughter’s SAT scores. She was just sentenced to 14 days in jail, one year of probation, 250 hours of community service and fined $30,000. Obviously, casting Felicity at this point might be a bit tricky, at least until she completes her sentence.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne had a busy summer. Most of it was spent dealing with lawsuits, even though she led viewers to believe that was a non issue during the reunion. But au contraire, the lawsuits kept a coming!
Erika had to go to court for a $6 million dollar lawsuit against her
ATM husband, Tom Girardi. Then they received another lawsuit for allegedly not repaying a loan and using the money to fund their lavish lifestyle. So what’s a girl to do to afford a $40,000 a month glam squad? Perform with singer and rapper Brooke Candy in a music video, of course!
Everyone seems exhausted from “speculating” about anything to do with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. At this point, loyal fans are in a holding pattern with the current cast members. It has become a love them or hate them situation after Season 9 drama unearthed financial and legal issues. Issues people may or may not have been trying to hide… Were viewers duped into a storyline involving a defenseless animal while the real news was swept under the rug? Signs definitely seem to point in that direction.
Erika Jayne had a relatively low key season. That might be a nice way of saying, she looked bored the entire time. Erika has joined co-stars Dorit Kemsley and Kyle Richards in the “Honey, what should I wear to court today?” club. Her husband, Tom Girardi, has been involved in a dispute over a measly $15 million. Petty cash! Still, Erika wasn’t phased by Tom’s litigious dance, until she got her own date with a judge. But look, all the cool kids are hanging out with their legal teams, so who cares? Since the core cast has now been disintegrated thanks to #puppygate, we have two new ladies making their debut next year. Erika’s return has been up for debate, but now we finally have some answers.
She’s baaaaack? Bravo just loves toying with their fans’ emotions, am I right? I don’t think it is out of the question to say viewers may have some concerns about the next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Fan favorite Lisa Vanderpump took a surprising hike off the show while the remaining ladies juggle various legal issues. It has been confirmed two new cast members will join the crew. Lisa Rinna’s friend, Sutton Stracke and model/actress/goddess Garcelle Beauvais will hopefully add a much-needed touch of glamour.
the new queen Kyle Richards is coming back, along with her lapdog BFF Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. Yes, to the delight of everyone, Teddi has been spied with HRH Richards and cameras following them! You have to figure Dorit Kemsley will return because she has bills to pay will require atonement after last year’s #puppygate fiasco. Rinna basically does whatever anyone tells her to do, so we assume there’s been no change in her status. Erika Jayne managed to leave everyone with a question mark. There was a brief buzz that her husband wouldn’t let her film she had quit the show or received a demotion. Now as we wait for final confirmation on the current cast, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Erika has been spotted filming! And the world rejoiced…
Denise Richards made it through her first season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills relatively unscathed. Sure, she talked up her sexual exploits, including the creepy happy-endings massage with an older woman she arranged for hubby Aaron Phypers. Denise also dished on her ex Charlie Sheen bringing a hooker to Thanksgiving dinner. And on occasion, she liked to have a few cocktails and let loose. Really loose. Marital secrets loose.
Despite being a long-time celebrity, Denise did not outwardly appear to have a lot in common with her RHOBH co-stars. She was not prone to stir up drama, for the most part. Except with Camille Grammer. Denise didn’t really want to compete in the fashion game with the other ladies. So what does she have to chat about with her co-stars? After a recent legal settlement, Denise can at least use lawsuits as a conversation starter.
It’s Expensive to be Erika Jayne. No, seriously, it really is. Her
music bankroller husband Tom Girardi is $6 million in debt. Ah, the downside of community property laws in the state of California. It was all good when Tom was funding her music videos, but I wonder how she feels now that she is bringing in her own consistent paychecks.
At least she has that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills salary to keep the family afloat. Or does she? Real Housewives fans have been speculating all weekend long about the
Petty Mess Pretty Mess’s status on the show. Apparently, she removed all mentions of RHOBH from her social media profiles. However, no one ever posted a screenshot of her previous profiles to prove that she ever mentioned the show on her Instagram and Twitter pages in the first place. Nevertheless, fans wondered if she got the boot like Camille Grammer or if she followed in Vicki Gunvalson and Cary Deuber’s footsteps with a demotion. How will she afford that +$40K glam squad budget?! Oh, the horror
How many f*cks does Erika Jayne give? About $6 million and counting, is my guess. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is a show based around wealthy women who don’t live in Beverly Hills. Now under the haze of numerous legal battles, one could wonder if they will still be wealthy when it’s all over. It happens, even for the rich. Debts go unpaid, deals are made under the table, bankruptcies are filed. But when you’re a celebrity, everyone winds up knowing your business. Heck, I bet people even concoct outrageous stories in an attempt to distract from their financial shame.
Erika and husband, Tom Girardi, are one of the RHOBH couples being questioned about their funds. Formerly an enigma wrapped in a riddle and cash, Erika is currently a conundrum wrapped in court papers and searching for her glam squad. Tom has been utilizing his skills as a renowned attorney to get himself out of some hot water. After speculation emerged that Tom used a loan to “fund
Erika’s tour his lavish lifestyle”, Erika found herself slapped with a lawsuit of her own. Apparently, the slapping isn’t done yet, my friends! Erika’s pretty mess just got a little messier.
Erika Jayne is an enigma… wrapped in spandex and 50 inches of hair. But isn’t that why we love the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills blonde? Since viewers met Erika, we learned this is a women intent on making a statement. No matter what the occasion, Erika is definitely not getting her face done at the Clinique counter in Dillard’s.
Fans are very familiar with Erika’s Glam Squad. The
paid friends of Erika’s who live under her stairs create spectacular looks and are responsible for the image she maintains. The Squad travels with Erika in coach to such exotic locales as Dubai, Germany, and CVS. But don’t get it twisted, Erika’s collective of magicians don’t come cheap. It takes a village to maintain a dazzling facade and Tom Girardi Erika is willing to pay. Whether it’s a short wig or a ponytail higher than Mauricio Umansky in Hawaii Tom’s debt, Erika relies on her gaggle of men to set the tone. While some might balk at the extensive cost of not wearing Wet N Wild, Erika schools us on the necessity of being vain looking good.
