Erika Girardi is moving on but not necessarily moving up!
Erika’s new 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 2,015 sq ft. home is located near the Fairfax area and Hancock Park.
“Elegant living room w/large barrel ceiling & bright arched windows. Kitchen includes Viking Double Ovens, Sub Zero Fridge, Thermador gas stove & sunny breakfast nook,” reads the property listing.
The home also features a garden patio that sits directly off the kitchen and living room. The backyard also features a black bottom pool that is only steps away from the master bedroom.
“Erika has been living in the house for a while. She’s made it her own space and loves it,” the source tells PEOPLE. “She’s doing well and is happy.”
Meanwhile, things aren’t going so well for Erika’s estranged husband, Tom.
The Girardi family seems to be quite worried about Tom as they have recently filed for conservatorship amid his ongoing legal and financial woes.
On January 20, Robert requested that control of the 81-year-old famed lawyer‘s estate be given to his family. He also noted that Tom’s condition has deteriorated to the point that he can no longer remember dates, times, and places.
“Thomas V. Girardi (“Tom”) is a renowned trial lawyer responsible for some of the most notable mass tort verdicts in California. However, at age 81, Tom’s current condition has sadly deteriorated to the point where he cannot care for himself without assistance. His short-term memory is severely compromised, and, on information and belief, he is often not oriented as to date, time, or place,” he wrote, adding that he “has first-hand knowledge that Tom lives alone and can not care for himself.”
Robert also claims that Tom could lose all of his personal employees, including his housekeeper, who has done his food shopping for 25 years due to his current financial situation.
“For at least 25 years, Tom has employed help to assist him with day-to-day functions,” Robert wrote.
He continued, “For instance, (Robert) believes he has not purchased his own groceries in years. However, Tom’s longtime housekeeper of 25 years is set to quit due to Tom’s financial situation: he cannot pay them any longer.”
Currently, Tom has “certain friends looking out for him to make sure he has sufficient food and that he makes it to a given appointment on time.” However, if Tom is “left to his own devices,” it is doubtful that he could manage his day-to-day life “for any significant period of time without assistance.”
If that weren’t bad enough, Tom’s family also believes he is in no place to manage his personal finances and to “resist fraud or undue influence.”
According to court documents, Tom doesn’t understand “the dire [financial] situation” he is in. Instead, he insists, “his money situation will clear up next week.”
Tom’s brother claims that it’s clear to him “and anyone else who knows him” that Tom is unable to “make the decisions needed to handle the important issues.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is expected to return for season 11 in mid-2021.
