Erika Jayne was once again in the hot seat on this week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
She navigated a series of questions from her RHOBH co-stars about alleged funds she received from her estranged husband Tom Girardi’s law firm.
“I wake up, and I go, ‘This is really happening. All of this is really happening in real-time.’ I mean, I’m so tired and so overwhelmed, and everything happens day to day,” Erika told her c0stars on Wednesday’s episode. “And there’s more coming. I’m far from done.”
Sutton Stracke stirred the pot when she asked whether Erika was “truly blindsided” by Tom’s alleged actions or if she knew about the crimes before the news made headlines.
“I don’t have access to lawsuits before they hit [the] press,” Erika replied.
Things intensified when the ladies forced Sutton to admit that she invited them over to discuss Erika’s case earlier in the week.
“You guys, are you really that afraid of me?” Erika asked the ladies, including Dorit Kemsley, Lisa Rinna, Garcelle Beauvais, Crystal Minkoff, Kathy Hilton, Kyle Richards, and former Housewife Teddi Mellencamp.
Sutton then brought up the “$20 million elephant in the room,” asking Erika, “Why is the paper saying that $20 million went into your LLC?”
“The obvious question is, ‘Did you know any of this?’ … As your friend, I don’t think you did,” Kyle said. “Everybody was like, ‘Do you know where that money is coming from? Is that a loan? Is that over time?’ That was the biggest question.”
Erika played coy, saying, “That is another question that we will uncover as well.” When Sutton continued to push, the singer claimed, “I was kept away from the books.”
After Sutton noted that would make her “insane,” Erika agreed, “It did.”
She added, “No one knows the answer but him.”
