Did Bethenny Frankel Just Shade RHOBH Star Erika Girardi? See the Former RHONY Star’s Tweet and Decide For Yourself!

Throwing shade?

Bethenny Frankel may have just reignited her long-running feud with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Girardi.

The former Real Housewives of New York star seemingly shaded Erika amid her legal and divorce drama.

“One thing I always say: you can’t play stupid and smart at the same time…” Bethenny tweeted on Saturday, December 19.

While the Skinnygirl mogul never mentions Erika directly, fans quickly caught on to who Bethenny was talking about in her tweet.


Some fans have shown minimal sympathy for Erika, and Tom, amid their legal, financial, and marital issues.

On top of the estranged couple’s divorce, they are also being sued for embezzlement and fraud. Erika and Tom are accused of stealing settlement funds from the Lion Air crash victims’ families.

Tom is also being sued by his business partners Robert Keese, Robert Finnerty, and Jill O’Callahan, who allege he never paid them approximately $315,000 in income from their company. Wells Fargo also sued Tom and his Girardi Keese law firm, claiming that they owe the financial institution $882 million.

The RHOBH star was allegedly blindsided by Tom’s legal and financial issues. Tom reportedly claims to only have “maybe a couple thousand” dollars in his personal bank account. He also claimed that his stock portfolio of millions was “all gone.”

“At one point, I had about 80 million or 50 million in cash. That’s all gone. I don’t have any money,” he told a court in September, adding that he hasn’t “taken a penny in salary out of the firm for more than two years.”

Erika has also accused Tom of infidelity. On Friday, December 18, she publicly called out Tom’s alleged mistress on Instagram. She did so by sharing photos of text messages sent to Tom by California judge, Justice Tricia A. Bigelow.

“This is Justice Tricia A. Bigelow. She was f–king my husband Tom Girardi, and he was paying her Saks bill and paying for her plastic surgery,” Erika captioned the post.

As for Bethenny and Erika, they have a long-running hot and cold relationship. If you recall, the two didn’t hit it off when they first met in the Hamptons during season 6 of RHOBH.

Take a trip down memory lane with the below clip!

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is expected to return for season 11 in mid-2021.
