The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - RHOBH

RHOBH: Erika Jayne Questioned by Costars Over Alleged $20 Million Loans From Tom Girardi’s Law Firm

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.”

Lisa then questioned, “Where does $80 million go,” Erika said, “Explain that to me. … That’s a question that only he can answer.”
Dorit chimed in and tried to smooth things over by saying that the group believes in Erika’s “innocence,” to which Erika noted, “I haven’t been accused of anything.”

The Beverly Beach designer replied, “It’s a matter of what you knew and if you were complicit.”

“Those words are not cool,” Erika fired back. “It’s not nice to repeat it because you know it’s not true.”

“Have you had any kind of discussions with attorneys about the story? … How to navigate through it?” Sutton asked.

Erika replied, “No.”

“I don’t know if you knew or not. My sister had a kidney transplant, and it went wrong. She had a lawyer; she was supposed to be awarded money,” Garcelle said. “So if what Tom did is absolutely true, then f—k Tom because I know personally what it feels like for someone who is waiting for their compensation for something they went through.”

Erika then acknowledged that allegations in the lawsuit are “terrible.”

“He will have to pay a price for that if, in fact, that’s what happened. I think what has happened to Tom here is he is not mentally capable, and he is in sole control of his firm, and I think that it got away from him. I think we are dealing with a man who is diminished capacity, in control, and not doing the right thing. Because if he stole the money, I’d like to know where it is. That’s the truth,” she said.

“The victims need to be taken care of. … I’m not worried about me. I’m last in all of this. Those people are owed their money, but we need to see what this man did,” Erika added.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
