It’s a “lifestyle” according to Erika Jayne.
The Pretty Mess singer defended her outrageous $14 million American Express tab during the final installment of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 reunion on Wednesday.
“So, if you knock that down to $2 million per year, that’s all pretty much what we’re doing this year,” she said.
“I mean, doing in this lifestyle,” she added, looking at her costars for support.
Erika previously claimed that her estranged husband Tom Girardi, 82, controlled her finances. She insisted that she gave him “every paycheck” she earned throughout their 21-year marriage including her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills salary.
During part 4 of the reunion, Erika told reunion host Andy Cohen that she “[doesn’t] know” why she is being sued.
“This is a very long bankruptcy that will be pulled apart, both his firm and his personal bankruptcy,” she said of Tom and his Girardi Keese law firm.
“I am being sued by everyone who thinks I’ve got some magical pot of gold at some rainbow,” she continued.
“If that is proven, what money is allegedly misappropriated, when and how?” she asked. “Does that mean every lawyer’s salary should be clawed back? Does that mean every secretary’s salary needs to be clawed back? Or the referring attorneys or anyone else that’s in that business?”
RHOBH will return to Bravo for season 12 in 2022.
