It seems that NOT every Beverly Hills Housewife is supporting Erika Jayne amid her mounting legal issues.
Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kathryn Edwards came out swinging against Erika in a new interview. She not only went after Erika’s legal woes but also her marriage and cold-as-ice personality.
Kathryn called Erika “cold” and said she should “show some remorse” for her estranged husband Tom Girardi’s alleged embezzlement victims, which includes fire victims, widows, and orphans. Tom has been accused of embezzling millions from said victims and Erika is accused of helping him do so while also benefiting from the money.
“If she wants to hold ground that she knew nothing because she has to and that’s what her lawyers are counseling her with, fine. But she could show some remorse,” Kathryn said on the Behind The Velvet Rope with David Yontef podcast “She could show some sympathy.”
“I am blown away by how cold she is,” she continued.
She added that the Pretty Mess singer should “give the s–t back. Give it to the rightful owners. I would be so beyond embarrassed to ever talk about what I spent, go get my damn hair done, to drive a Range Rover, to do any of that stuff when all of these victims are owed money. … I cannot. I cannot in any way, shape, or form be OK with any of that. That, to me, is sick.”
Months after Erika filed for divorce, Tom’s law firm Girardi & Keese was forced into Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
It is believed that Tom gave $25 million from his law firm’s account to Erika’s businesses in order for the singer to pay her expenses including credit card bills, glam squad, and more.
Since this information came to light many have wondered what Erika knew and if Tom and Erika’s divorce was a sham in order for them to protect their assets.
Kathryn falls into that camp and wonders what Erika knew and when she knew it.
“I want to give her the benefit of the doubt to say that she didn’t know everything, but if you’re spending how much money a month on a card, and I think she knew that the business was paying the card. She’s no dummy. I will say that because she has a survivor mentality,” she said.
“I think that she knew that the money was coming from the law firm,” she confessed. “I do think that Tom would say, ‘Hey, I won a lawsuit. This is how much money was awarded.’ She can do the math of what his percentage is.”
“Listen, I was married to a football player before. I am married to a football player now,” she added. “Anyone can read in the newspaper what NFL players are making in the contract season. I don’t have to see a check stub to figure out what’s coming in, the tax. She’s no dummy.”
She then recalled the RHOBH season 6 cast trip to Dubai, noting that Erika “had her two glam guys and then the stylist guy. And these big trunks came, and then they were putting all of her stuff out.”
“They laid out all the jewelry and the shoes and the makeup,” she continued. “I mean, it was like a full freaking production. It was crazy. And I remember just looking at it all, and all of the clothes, the shoes, and the sunglasses, and how much that was there, and thinking, ‘How much is she even going to wear in the four days that we were there?’ But thinking it was so over the top, and her telling me that she flew them all out, business class.”
“And you know, the meals,” she added. “And then we come back and sit at the table in the suite, and you know, everyone would be ordering, and she would just sign for everything… I remember just thinking, ‘Holy shit, this girl spends money like it’s coming out of tap.'”
Moreover, Kathryn believes Erika’s near 22-year marriage to Tom was nothing more than “a business deal.”
“It’s money, honey. That’s it,” she quipped. “That’s all it was. It was a business deal for her. I don’t think she has close friends. I don’t think she’s ever known, love. Now, she doesn’t have a career. I don’t think she has anything.”
“I always say that there’s choices, decisions, and consequences,” Kathryn explained. “You make a choice. You made a choice to marry this guy, who she probably saw things at the restaurant all the time of taking care of her and the way he talked to her, when he ordered a drink. She probably knew what she was getting into. There’s decisions that she had to make as far as what kind of wife she was going to be to him, what she was going to take out of the marriage, what she was going to get for it all. The business dealing of the marriage of settling with a guy you’re not really in love with.”
