Do I seriously miss the panty-gate days of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? I mean, no. That’s not possible. But what else have the women brought us since? I’ll wait. And please, for the love of everything, do not mention puppy-gate. That one left us Vanderpump-less and with Teddi Mellencamp to spare. I don’t even particularly stan LVP, but at least she brought something to the table!
Will the upcoming season 11 of RHOBH finally bring some interest? Honestly, it’s looking pretty good. From the sounds of it, Sutton Stracke is doing some heavy lifting to get us all the Erika Jayne divorce dirt we deserve. The trailer for the season also shows Dorit Kemsely calling out Tom Girardi’s alleged embezzlement from “widows and orphans.” Let’s keep fingers crossed for some real intrigue!
Put on your diamonds and pour the rosé — the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are headed back to our TV screens very soon. Season 11 will be without Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and Denise Richards. Sutton Stracke finally got a diamond, and is the one who we will see go all-in on Erika Jayne about her shady divorce and husband’s legal problems. Kyle Richards will be joined by her sister. No, unfortunately not Kim Richards — Kathy Hilton will be the newest friend-of. And the newest housewife, Crystal Kung Minkoff, will be thrown into the mix. It’s gearing up to be a big season after last year’s flop. Or as I like to call it, Brandi Glanville’s final nail in the Bravo coffin.
Season 11 is set to premiere May 19, and the first trailer is amping up the drama. To no surprise, it centers around Erika and Tom Girardi’s legal issues, where they’re being accused of embezzling settlements from victims of plane crashes, car accidents and more. Thanks to Garcelle Beauvais, we know Sutton is the only one who doesn’t “support” Erika throughout their divorce. But loyalty is a whole other thing in Beverly Hills so that probably mean’s she is just questioning Erika’s involvement like the rest of the world. Outside of the EJ saga, we’ll see Lisa Rinna grapple with the possibility of becoming a Kardashian in-law. Dorit Kemsley and the always entertaining PK Kemsley will be making a return as well.
We’re nearing the premiere of Season 11 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and it looks like it’ll center around Erika Jayne’s mounting legal issues. Her soon-to-be ex-husband Tom Girardi is facing federal fraud and embezzlement accusations that led to him losing his legal license. And EJ is claiming to have no involvement, even though the timing of her divorce makes it seem like she was trying to protect her assets rather than expose Big Tommy for a cheating scandal. While it sounds like most of the RHOBH ladies will sweep the situation under the rug, the newest diamond holder Sutton Stracke will apparently be doing God’s work and questioning Erika about her involvement.
Tom’s been accused of embezzling unpaid settlement funds to hundreds of victims of plane crashes, car accidents, explosions and more, totaling more than $26 million. But how else was he going to pay for Mrs. Girardi’s wannabe pop star career for $40k a month on glam? Erika is not sticking by her man, even though evidence points that she might have been more involved than she leads on. The whole thing leaves a bad taste in my mouth, and Lisa Vanderpump’s too.
Season 11 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is gearing up to be explosive as ever. And this time around, it’s without Brandi Glanville and Camille Grammer stirring the pot. Erika Jayne will finally have an interesting storyline on the show, but unfortunately, it’s due to her soon-to-be ex-husband Tom Girardi’s shady business. Tom is facing fraud and embezzlement charges and is accused of misappropriating millions in client funds to support he and EJ’s XXPen$ive lifestyle.
Miss Erika Girardi is proclaiming that she’s open and honest about the situation on RHOBH, but who even knows what the truth is. We saw Erika in the first trailer for Season 11 proclaiming that she had no knowledge of Tom’s shady legal matters. But some people, especially the newest diamond holder Sutton Stracke, aren’t buying it.
Many Housewives face legal issues, but none have had levels of disgust quite like Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi. In the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 11 trailer, Erika repeatedly denied knowledge of Tom’s alleged tricky bookkeeping that may or may not have funded her “music career”. Erika also filed for divorce from Big Tommy right before the shit hit the fan, which raised some eyebrows. Fun fact: Erika has been on the Board of Directors at GIRARDI FINANCIAL since 1999, which doesn’t help her cries of “Only HE knows…” Perhaps Sutton Stracke could bring this up next time Erika bares her teeth.
Victims of Tom’s supposed swindling don’t have the luxury of posting lingerie shots on Insta and moving into $1.5 million homes. Tom has been forced into bankruptcy in an effort to discharge his debts, but one former client isn’t backing down. A victim of the PG&E gas explosion who was burned over 90% of his body now adds his name to the long list of people wanting Tom to pay the piper.
More trouble for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Confessions of a Shopaholic star, Erika Jayne. After the newly released Season 11 trailer, you might have thought it was just her make-up that was in jeopardy, but nope. The hits keep on coming for Erika and it isn’t because she’s a great singer. First comes love, second comes marriage, then comes Erika in bankruptcy court.
Erika is in the middle of divorcing shamed attorney Tom Girardi. Tom is on the hook for allegedly embezzling an exorbitant amount of money from clients and vendors over the years while Erika was having fun with her “self-funded” music career. People weren’t getting paid and clients weren’t seeing settlement cash, but Erika’s corporate account managed to accept a $20 million deposit. Erika tried to cut and run while Tom basically lost everything to his name. Here’s where it gets worse for Erika, the trustee in Big Tommy’s bankruptcy case would now like a word with Ms.
Chahoy Jayne Girardi. Someone pour Denise Richards a Casamigos BLANCO, it’s about to get good.
Holy cats, it’s here. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is coming back and it has some explaining to do. Fans have been waiting for the Season 11 trailer to be released and for all intents and purposes, it does not disappoint. Loyal viewers of RHOBH have struggled the past few years due to lack of drama and the cast having a mental block against addressing their very interesting legal issues on camera. Instead we’ve been treated to bogus dog storylines and not much in the way of captivating television.
Will this be the redemption season for Beverly Hills? We’ll see some new faces on old faces and new cast members to spice things up. Kyle Richards’ sister Kathy Hilton is joining the gang, and newcomer Crystal Minkoff is off and running on her first season. Now it’s time to watch the Season 11 preview while the Bravo gods silently thank Erika Jayne for finally getting a storyline.
Sutton Stracke was a polarizing figure last season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She was only a Friend of the Housewives for Season 10, but she still managed to stir up plenty of drama. Sutton is wealthy and informed everyone that she only wears couture. Sutton was appalled that Kyle Richards didn’t have place cards at her dinner party. During a game of first impressions, Sutton told pregnant RHOBH co-star Teddi Mellencamp that she thought she would be “boring.”
Sutton’s antics even caused Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jackie Goldschneider to call her “a little too uppity.” Sutton insisted that she was “not a mean girl.” She also said, “Can I be a little snobby? Yes. But is that my whole personality? No.”
