Kelly Dodd isn’t mincing words when it comes to Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi.
In a new interview with Us Weekly, Kelly confesses she heard rumors about Erika and Tom’s financial woes years before they publicly came to light however she always brushed them off as mere gossip.
According to Kelly, she had “a lot of friends in Los Angeles” sharing rumors about Erika but she always thought the rumors were “fake.”
“Oh yeah. I heard all of that. I mean, I have a lot of friends in Los Angeles that know them and you hear rumors, you know?” she said.
“I hear things like that, but you don’t really believe them because people talk or they’re jealous,” she continued. “I took it in one ear and out the other.”
She thought the people spreading the rumors were “jealous” of Erika’s life.
“You hear all these things about how they’re fake and how she’s fake and using him for all this money,” she said. “People are jealous. So that’s what I took it as. Like, people are jealous of Erika Jayne. I didn’t think anything of it.”
Fast forward to 2021 and Kelly’s feelings on the subject have completely changed. Now she thinks Erika is an “absolute liar” and notes that she should have shown more remorse for the victims on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
“She should have done things that were proactive that were like, ‘I feel remorse. I feel bad for these people. I shouldn’t have spent the money that I spent and I’m going to give back and here is how I’m going to do it,’” the former Real Housewives of Orange County star said. “That’s what she should’ve done.”
“I think she is an absolute liar. … Because you see it on the show, they catch her in so many lies,” Kelly shared. “Well, she’s not a truthful, upfront person. … She should have done things that were proactive that were like, ‘I feel remorse. I feel bad for these people. I shouldn’t have spent the money that I spent and I’m going to give back and here is how I’m going to do it.’ That’s what she should’ve done.”
