There’s no signal of Erika Jayne’s money woes ending anytime quickly — a reality she was all too conscious of whereas capturing The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
“You cannot wallow. … Life goes on. I did read this morning that the bankruptcy trustees want to take the house and possibly evict Tom [Girardi], so we’ll see. I’m out here rebuilding my life, but girl, I have zero dollars. And by the time those trustees are done with him, there will be nothing. So I walk out of this with nothing,” Erika, 50, advised Kyle Richards throughout the Wednesday, September 29, episode. “And I said that to my lawyers the other day. I said, ‘I expect nothing.’ And one of my lawyers looked at me and said, ‘That is the most courageous thing I’ve ever heard.’ Every day brings a brand new disaster. It’s just full of f—king bulls—t.”
While Kyle, 52, didn’t say a lot throughout the scene, she threw some shade at Erika in her confessional.
“Nobody wants to see themselves with nothing, but obviously, the victims here are the ones that need to be paid the money,” she advised Bravo cameras. “It’s plain and simple.”
Erika, who filed for divorce from Tom in November 2020, has been named in her estranged husband’s chapter case, with the trustee suing her for $25 million.
“She attempts to create a distinction between handing her money directly versus paying all of her bills directly,” the court docket paperwork filed by the trustee overseeing Tom’s case claimed. “The distinction, like her prior motion for reconsideration, is meritless. Any payments made for her benefit are her responsibility.”
Tom, for his half, was positioned below a conservatorship earlier this year and Erika, who has denied realizing something about him misusing funds over time, opened as much as her costars about how she’s coping throughout Wednesday’s episode.
“I’m a good time and I want to be even a better time, but you know what? I have to walk a fine line ‘cause there’s a lot of people that are looking at me,” she stated. “And if I look like I’m having a little too much fun, I’m not remorseful. If I look like I’m looking a little too good, I have no shame. I’m damned if I do and I’m damned if I don’t. I want to have fun, I want to laugh, but if I have laugh too much, I get criticized for that. And then if I hang my head in shame, I’m clearly guilty of something. I cannot win.”
Lisa Rinna supplied some context through a confessional into how Erika’s dealing with the state of affairs.
“Everybody just wants her to say, ‘God, I feel terrible. Oh, my God, the poor victims,’” the actress stated. “But I think that Erika’s lawyers have said to her, ‘You can’t talk about anything because then all of the sudden she’s connected to it.’”
