An sudden ally! Lala Kent got here to Erika Jayne‘s protection after her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costar Sutton Stracke seemingly questioned her involvement in estranged husband Tom Girardi‘s authorized points.
“I agree with Erika,” Lala, 30, mentioned on Bravo’s Chat Room on Thursday, August 26, per Page Six. “It’s like, don’t be a fair-weather friend. At the time your friend needs you the most, you can’t step up to the plate and say, ‘If you need me, I’m here for you?’ How would you be involved?”
The Vanderpump Rules star defined how she would react if she was concerned within the state of affairs, including, “If I were in Sutton’s shoes and I didn’t have any part of whatever was going on, Have the feds pick up the phone. I have nothing to hide. They’re going to be real bored talking to me.”
Erika, 50, filed for divorce from Tom, 82, in November 2020 after greater than 20 years of marriage. One month after their cut up, the estranged couple have been accused of stealing settlement funds supposed for the households of victims killed in a 2018 aircraft crash.
While the drama continues to unfold, the Broadway star has denied having any information or involvement within the case towards her former partner’s regulation agency, Girardi & Keese.
“That is the answer. That is the question. I don’t know why I would be named in a lawsuit I have nothing to do with,” she mentioned in July episode of the Bravo sequence.
Some members of the RHOBH cast have supported the “Pretty Mess” performer, however a Los Angeles Times article made Sutton, 49, question whether or not they have been being informed your complete reality. During the Wednesday, August 25, episode, the Georgia native voiced her worries about being implicated by affiliation.
“I just needed to understand the rules and the guidelines around that because I don’t want to put myself in jeopardy,” she defined to the opposite ladies in a flashback clip. “I still feel like that.”
After Lisa Rinna and Kyle Richards talked about their buddy’s worries to Erika, the singer argued Sutton’s questions have been “answered fully.” Kim, 52, defined that Sutton was questioning whether or not she would find yourself concerned within the case in some way.
“I was not trying to be a bitch to Sutton, but just say what you were saying, be honest,” the Halloween star shared. “Sutton honestly doesn’t want any problems legally or any problems in society, basically.”
Erika wasn’t thrilled at her costar questioning her innocence and making it about herself, including, “How small town of her. The ‘I don’t want to be associated with you because of what the neighbors may think’ to me is cowardice. ‘I can’t be around you because of my good name.’ It’s like, girl, come on, ‘my reputation’? Like, what are we, in small town Georgia?”
Erika continued to voice her disappointment in a confessional, saying, “We’re not in Augusta, bitch. Who the f–k cares. It has nothing, zero, negative.”
Sutton has beforehand mentioned that she didn’t agree with how Erika determined to deal with the difficult state of affairs.
“It’s so hard because knowing now what I didn’t know then, I would have, maybe, played it a different way,” the designer admitted on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen in July.
