RHOBH cast confronts Erika Jayne over lawsuit claims she 'stole $20M from lawyer ex Tom Girardi's clients'08/19/2021
THE cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills confronted Erika Jayne over the lawsuit claims that she “stole $20M from lawyer ex Tom Girardi’s clients.”
The intense conversation will play out on Wednesday’s episode of the Bravo show.
In a teaser clip for the upcoming RHOBH episode, the show’s stars sat down with Erika, 50, to address allegations that she stole money from her ex-husband Tom’s clients.
Before Erika joined the conversation, Kyle Richard, 52, asked the fellow Bravo stars if they thought Erika knew what Tom was up to.
Sutton Stracke, 49, responded: “I don’t think ignorance is an excuse.”
When Garcelle Beauvais, 54, asked if Sutton would express the same sentiment to Erika’s face, Sutton said she would “say exactly the same thing.”
Sutton was then presented with the opportunity when Erika joined the group, as she asked: “Are you really that afraid of me?”
The 49-year-old then asked Erika why “the paper is saying that $20 million went into your LLC?”
Kyle added: “Did you know any of this?”
Erika remained silent as the other stars- including Dorit Kemsley and Lisa Rinna- appeared uncomfortable.
ERIKA'S LEGAL DRAMA
The RHOBH star filed for divorce from Tom, 82, in November after 21 years of marriage.
Shortly after their split was confirmed, the former couple began to be hit with a number of lawsuits.
Despite claiming she wasn’t aware of Tom’s wrongdoings, the Bravo star has found herself at the center of the legal drama.
Erika was previously accused of “hiding her bank statements," as a trustee's special litigation counsel confirmed that Tom’s law firm transferred an eye-opening $20 million to the Bravo star's many businesses.
The RHOBH star even appeared to create one of the businesses after news broke of the embezzlement scandal.
UNFOLDING ON CAMERA
The pair's legal drama has been heavily documented during the recent season of RHOBH.
During last week's new episode, Erika stormed off set crying while on a group trip to La Quinta as her costars learned of her alleged involvement in ex Tom "Ponzi scheme."
The TV personality broke down in tears and locked herself in the bathroom during a discussion about the lawyer's legal troubles.
She later got up and abruptly left as she declared she’s “going home” back to Los Angeles.
The TV personality left the house in tears and left her friends stunned as they wondered if there’s “more to the story.”
The following morning, an article by the Los Angeles Times came out that called Tom’s situation a “ponzi scheme.”
According to the article, Tom was "improperly funneling" over $20 MILLION into Erika's entertainment business LLC.
