RHOBH’s Erika Jayne Meets With Her Estranged Husband Tom Girardi’s Victims


Is Erika Jayne trying to rehab her image? Seems so, as the RHOBH star recently met up with several victims of her estranged husband Tom Girardi.

Erika Jayne is attempting to make amends, according to Page Six. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills beauty met with multiple victims of her estranged husband, Tom Girardi, on Sunday in Los Angeles.

The victims were cheated out of settlement money for their various legal cases that were handled by Tom’s now-defunct law firm, Girardi Keese.

“I came here with an open heart to listen to what’s going on, hear what happened, and figure out how to be a part of how to move forward together in a way that’s beneficial for all victims,” Erika told Page Six.

An eyewitness says that Erika Jayne was dressed conservatively, in a pink floral blouse and black trousers, on Sunday as she arrived at the Valley Inn Restaurant in Los Angeles for a Paul’s Ice Cream event.

Kathy Ruigomez and Kimberly Archie founded the company. Archie is a former Girardi Keese employee, while Ruigomez is the mother of Joseph Ruigomez, who was injured in the San Bruno gas pipeline explosion, and had his $11 million dollar lawsuit settlement swindled by Tom Girardi. The Ruigomez family’s story was featured in Hulu’s 2021 documentary “The Housewife and the Hustler.” 

Not only did Erika Jayne speak with victims and former acquaintances of her estranged husband, but she also sat down for an on-camera interview with The Los Angeles Times.

“They looked very serious but engaged during their discussion,” an eyewitness said, noting that the Pretty Mess singer was in “good spirits.”

Erika also spoke with victims Josie Hernandez and Nancy Marston, who were also screwed over by Tom when it came to receiving their settlement money.

“I think we’re moving on, and I think that maybe we could help each other,” Marston explained to Page Six. “We can help some of the victims.”

Hernandez, on the other hand, applauded Erika Jayne for meeting with Tom’s victims.

“I think that it’s even difficult for some attorneys and people who prosecute these kind of cases to understand it. So I think it would be irrational to think Erika knew,” Hernandez said. “I never thought she stole the money or anything like that. My only thing was really just how it came across to the victims, and now this erases any of that obviously because she’s making a concerted effort to make the victims feel better.”

Since Tom’s alleged crimes came to light in 2020 and 2021, the Bravolebrity has denied having any knowledge about her husband’s misdeeds. Erika has continued to insist that she has “empathy” for Tom’s victims and “trusts” that they “will be taken care of.”

Tom allegedly embezzled more than $15 million from his clients. The once-famed attorney has Alzheimer’s and dementia and now lives in a memory care facility.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is reportedly returning to Bravo for season 13 in late 2023. Some reports suggest season 13 will premiere on November 1.
