RHOBH footage of Erika Jayne subpoenaed amid her involvement in ex-husband Tom Girard's embezzlement lawsuit10/11/2021
FOOTAGE of Erika Jayne on RHOBH was subpoenaed amid her involvement with Tom Girardi's embezzlement lawsuit.
The Bravo star, 50, and her ex, 82, have been accused of stealing millions from the families of plane crash victims.
And amid their legal battle, lawyers served a subpoena to TV producers to hand over any unaired RHOBH footage of Erika.
Attorney Jay Edelson said he believes Bravo has videos that directly relates to the lawsuit he has already filed against Erika.
He told Fox News: "We believe that Bravo has hundreds of hours of unaired footage, as well as documentary evidence, which directly relates to this case.
"So far, Bravo has chosen to use the Girardi embezzlement scandal to increase ratings and make significant money for itself."
He added: "The victims have had to endure watching the ‘Real Housewives’ cast do things like eat caviar pie and drink specially-made vodka served by white-gloved staff as they pay lip service to the lives Tom has ruined.
"The victims have watched Erika cry crocodile tears as she is ‘forced’ to move into a $10,000-a-month apartment while she and her glam squad parade around in a lifestyle few of us will ever know."
Back in December, Erika and Tom were accused of embezzling funds meant for Lion Air Flight 610 victims through their “sham” divorce.
Their assets were frozen and Tom was later declared bankrupt.

She filed for divorce from Tom one month before the lawsuit, after 20 years of marriage.
During the current season of RHOBH, the cameras captured the cast reacting to the massive embezzlement case.
Erika was accused of “hiding her bank statements," despite insisting she had no idea that her husband had stolen any money and screaming "shut the f*** up" at Sutton Stacke after being accused.
Tom's law firm, Girardi & Keese found that the star had spent over $25million on her own company.
The extortionate amount that Erika is claimed to have spent supposedly funded assistants and a glam squad, according to a letter sent to her lawyer.
From 2008 to 2020, $14.2million was charged to the 50-year-old's American Express card, with another $1.4million going to unknown purchases.
Erika's attorney claimed that “no money whatsoever went to Erika,” and that she had no role in her husband’s company.
She currently lives in a bachelorette pad, which she moved into after leaving her $13million LA mansion that she shared with ex-husband.
Meanwhile, in August it was reported that Tom's law firm owes $101 million in total liabilities, which is roughly $91 million more than his total property assets.
