Erika Jayne Talked About Her Divorce From Tom Girardi On “Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills”

June 24, 2021 / Posted by:

49-year-old Erika Jayne made her big play on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last night and detailed why she filed for divorce from her husband of 21 years, 82-year-old Tom Girardi. Tom and Erika are in the middle of some legal messiness and they’ve been sued, with the claim that their divorce is a sham for hiding embezzled assets. But Erika said: NO! It’s not that! She said the breakdown of her marriage was because Tom stopped talking to her and she felt alone and quote: “I just couldn’t live that way.” A rich man paying for my lavish life and never speaking to me? Wow… I absolutely could live that way.

Erika filed for divorce last November when Tom was accused of stealing money from the victims of the Lion Air plane crash and stealing from the partners at his law firm. An ABC News Originals documentary, The Housewife and the Hustler came out, and it painted Erika as not-so-innocent and not that blind when it came to her husband’s alleged thievery. Investigators are looking very closely at Erika’s finances and it’s been reported that Tom’s law firm paid over $20 million in loans to Erika’s companies. But Erika continues to claim she didn’t know anything about Tom’s shady dealings. And she continued with that narrative on the latest episode of RHoBH.

People says that in this week’s episode, the messes were at Sutton Stracke‘s Parisian-themed party and as they’re having a meal together, Erika decided it was time to pull focus and address “the elephant in the room.” She then went on about how sad her life is now that her thieving husband got got marriage has crumbled and her precious Lambo is gone:

“My life drastically changed this week. I let go of my Lamborghini, I let go of my 16,000-square-foot home, I let go of my marriage – I let go of everything. I literally made a decision that I had to… I left because he pushed me further and further out… The conversations that I used to have were now reduced down to a sentence or two. I just kept walking around that house and knowing that this marriage was headed down a really shitty path, I had to make a choice to do what was right for me. I couldn’t live that way anymore.”

Erika said she kept it all from the women because it doesn’t serve her legally to be running her mouth. FACTS!

“I didn’t want to do that and that’s the truth. It also doesn’t serve me to talk a lot about what is happening legally or will happen legally because I am married to somebody who’s very good in that area.”

Erika said that she “struggled for a long time” knowing that she had to end her marriage and that she “spent a good 30 days closing out certain parts.” But it’s not just a legal trick to set a timeline and play innocent to Tom’s crimes! Because she has receipts! There are clips in the episode of Erika talking about how she’s selling clothes and not really answering why she’s doing it. So I guess if you want to find a hot pink bedazzled onesie that says “PAT THE PUSS” on the crotch, go check Poshmark!

Erika kept laying on the theatrics:

“I cried every day… This was the end of a massive part of my life, stepping into basically a void.”

She said she “tried to talk and tried to work it out” with Tom but that she was “met with such resistance,” and that she “was always dismissed.” Erika revealed she had downsized from her sprawling estate to a $1.5 rental million home, leaving in secret after dropping Tom at work:

“After finding a place to go to, I dropped him off at work and I went home and moved out. I was out within the day. It’s frightening, you know, when you think about it… It’s the uncertainty and the instability of being, you know, really out on your own. So to all of a sudden live somewhere else and know that you’re never going home, you know, for now, this is home. Hope you chose wisely, this is it.”

Erika explained she stayed for so long in the marriage because as the poor twenty-something who married a rich older guy:

“There’s always that underlying pressure of wanting to please someone that’s provided for you. And I felt always that I should shut up and be grateful to an extent.”

Yeah, that’s the whole Sugar Baby gag, sweetie. Did she not do her research ahead of time? Erika also let on that she knew shit was going to be hitting the fan for her, suggesting more was coming:

And Academy Award goes to MISS ERIKA JAYNE! See? She left him so long ago! Because of his cheating–I mean! Because he stopped talking to her. Duh! Not because the divorce is a front to hide assets. Although Erika seems to be feeling the repercussions of leaving a rich grifter. Here she is pumping gas while looking very normal:

Damn her weave would normally be twice that size! Oh well, downsizing isn’t too bad. I mean come on, Lamborghinis are probably terrible on gas anyway.
