ERIKA Jayne resorted to vacuuming her own home in a sweatsuit after losing her maid amid claims she “stole $25million” from her ex-husband Tom Girardi’s law firm.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star revealed that she “never left” her cheating ex-husband because she was “solely dependant” on him during their marriage.
Erika, 50, has experienced a true riches to rags story as she was seen vacuuming her entire home without assistance on Wednesday’s episode.
The reality star wore a head-to-toe pink sweatsuit and her hair in messy waves as she attempted to clean her new space.
Bravo cameramen videotaped the TV personality as she hoovered her couch by hand, pushed her vacuum throughout the hallways, and wiped down her refrigerator while on her hands and knees.
Fans were floored by the change of events as Erika once had plenty of housekeepers and staff to perform such tasks before her life erupted in scandal.
“Loving this Cinderella version of Erika her people are pushing #RHOBH,” one slammed on Twitter.
“The hair though. So raggedy. #RHOBH,” another criticized alongside a screenshot of the blonde on TV.
A third compared: “Miss Sutton Stracke is being invited to have dinner with Gucci while Erika cleans her house #RHOBH.”
“I’m sorry this is one of the funniest scenes I’ve ever seen on Housewives #RHOBH,” a fourth laughed while watching Erika clean her home.
“How did Erika suddenly turn into Cinderella overnight? Sweetie you still live in a house that most of the people in this country could never afford. Please stop. #RHOBH,” a final ranted.
Later in the episode, Erika admitted that although she didn’t sign a “prenup” when she married Tom, she worried that he “would put a stop to” her income if she filed for divorce.
The singer also showed viewers messages from her husband that allegedly exposed him as a cheater.
The texts included raunchy messages and pictures about the alleged ongoing affair which she claimed she found out about years before.
“It didn’t hit me Tom had cheated until one night leaving Yolanda [Hadid]’s condo,” she told her co-stars.
“And she said something about David [Foster] along the lines of ‘boys will always protect boys.’
“Later that night when I got home he was asleep and I opened it up and there was everything.”
Fellow Bravo stars Kyle Richards and Lisa Rinna then asked Erika why she never left the multi-millionaire attorney.
She explained: “It’s been a real mental f**k for a long time. It’s been really hard. There was a thought of leaving, yes. But how? Where?
“I’m solely dependent on my husband at this point so if I cut my cards, what am I going to do come to you and say ‘help me divorce my husband?’” she confessed.
“I was in no position to go anywhere. But we had no prenup. I still don’t have a prenup and I still don’t have a f**king dime from him!
Erika finished: “But I said I’m going to work really hard so one day I can stand on my own two feet. And that’s what I did.”
The Bravolebrity filed for divorce from her lawyer husband Tom, 82, in November.
Shortly after, the ex-couple were hit with a number of lawsuits, most namely the claim that they “stole $25million from his suffering clients.”
