So far, the Beverly Hills Housewives have had co-star Erika Jayne’s back amid her divorce from estranged husband Tom Girardi and their mounting legal issues that include claims of fraud and embezzlement.
However, that doesn’t mean they didn’t have doubts and questions when Erika and Tom’s legal woes first began to emerge.
On the July 9 episode of The Sl-t Pig podcast, Dorit Kemsley dished on the bevy of challenges the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast faced amid as they did their best to navigate the allegations against Erika.
She also revealed if she believes Erika will attend or skip the season 11 reunion.
“It was very difficult to navigate, as it’s one of our friends,” Dorit admitted. “I felt very much for Erika. It’s also one of those things that you almost can’t wrap your head around. You’ve known this person. You’ve met her husband. It’s almost incomprehensible. I worry for her, as my friend.”
Dorit also noted that she felt Erika was very “honest” amid filming despite criticism that she wasn’t vocal enough about the accusations she and Tom are facing.
“I think she did a good job opening up and being as honest and up-front as she could. [But] there is someone in particular [who questions her more than the rest],” she said.
While Dorit wouldn’t admit which Beverly Hills Housewife was the hardest on Erika, she reveals that many cast members experienced “question and doubt” about Erika’s involvement in the allegations of embezzlement.
“I will say there are moments where there was a lot of question and doubt, and Erika didn’t share anything until it came out. There was a lot of people on the cast that went through a moment where there was a shadow of doubt or confusion,” she confessed.
No doubt Erika won’t be able to discuss EVERYTHING at the upcoming reunion as her lawyers will most likely restrict her from discussing certain topics. Despite this hiccup, Dorit believes that Erika will show up at the reunion and share what she can, even if it’s not much.
“I absolutely do,” Dorit confirmed when asked if she thinks Erika will attend the season 12 reunion.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
