Friends through thick and thin!
Meghan McCain is defending her “good friend” and favorite Beverly Hills Housewife, Erika Jayne.
The former talk show host appeared on Wednesday’s Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen where she defended the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star.
Andy Cohen asked Meghan if she was “suspicious” of the timing around Erika’s divorce filing from her estranged husband, Tom Girardi.
“The timelines match up to me,” Meghan said. “I believe her. I feel bad for her. I have known, I don’t know, but I know wealthy women who don’t know anything about their finances.”
She added, “I believe she has a good heart. I believe that she will be proven innocent.”
According to Meghan she and Erika became very close during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I’m like legitimately good friends with her. We became much closer doing COVID,” Meghan explained. “It’s a little weird. I remember specifically when I was coming back from my like my first doctor’s appointment after I gave birth, her calling me and like having a whole conversation about how stuff was going down in her life.”
Andy then asked Meghan her feelings on fans criticizing Erika for not coming across as more sympathetic to Tom’s victims, who he allegedly stole millions from.
“I would have loved to have consulted her,” Meghan said. “I would have loved to have her hire me for some political consulting, especially on her social media. I just think unfortunately that perception is reality in the time that we live in.”
In late 2020, Erika and Tom were accused of embezzling millions meant for clients of Tom’s Girardi Keese law firm. Said clients included an array of victims including widows, orphans, and burn victims.
On top of this Erika is being sued for $25 million by trustees handling the bankruptcy case for the Girardi Keese law firm. The RHOBH star continues to deny she knew anything about Tom’s alleged crimes.
Part 3 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 reunion airs on Wednesday, October 27 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
