How much did Erika Jayne know about her husband’s allegedly shady business practices, and when? According to Tom Girardi, Erika knew more than she’s letting on. Stay on this page for the latest scoop in the RHOBH star’s ongoing legal drama.
Erika Jayne dresses down in low-key shopping trip, still gets hate
Erika Jayne can’t go anywhere these days without facing scrutiny. PK Kemsley called her out on RHOBH for posting sultry photos on social media amid multiple lawsuits and fraud allegations. Erika may have taken the criticism to heart with a low-key shopping trip to TJ Maxx.
However, the outing came under fire from fans of the show who called it a publicity stunt. Or is Erika just living a modest life these days?
A few months ago, a photo of her pumping her own gas, looking disheveled in sweats and messy hair went viral.

Did his family ignore her concerns over his health?
Whether she’s posting scantily-clad photos on social media or outlet shopping, Erika Jayne isn’t lying low. In fact, after the news broke about her filing for divorce from her husband, the RHOBH star kept the cameras rolling. Throughout Season 11 of the Bravo show, she’s dropped bread crumbs for viewers about her marriage and the legal saga engulfing her.
According to Erika, Tom controlled every aspect of their lives together. She also seems to corroborate the reports that her estranged husband has dementia.
During a recent episode of RHOBH, Erika said that Tom was in an accident years ago that left him with a head injury. Some of her co-stars find the details of the accident questionable, as Erika keeps changing her story.
Did Tom’s family and doctors ignore Erika’s concerns over his declining mental state? That was the bombshell she dropped during the September 22nd episode of RHOBH.
She confided in Dorit Kemsley and Lisa Rinna about her own grandmother’s dementia. While Erika agrees that Tom needs a caretaker, she doesn’t think he should be put in a facility, per Us Weekly.
Tom Girardi speaks, says Erika Jayne knew
Tom and Erika have been involved in lawsuits in the past. However, nothing could prepare fans for the shocking allegations that the lawyer defrauded plane crash victims, including orphans. Allegedly, settlements meant for clients of the law firm went straight to Tom’s pockets to fund his extravagant lifestyle.
How does Erika play into the legal drama? The lawsuit alleges that the money was also used to fund her singing career and glam squad.
The RHOBH star denies any knowledge of fraud.
However, Tom Girardi may have just complicated her denials in a new video appearance. Looking frail and gaunt, the high-profile attorney was approached by paparazzi when leaving a restaurant.
As Tom’s lunch companion tries to usher him away, one question did get a response, Page Six reports. When asked if his ex-wife knew anything about his legal troubles, Tom replied, “I think she does.”

It’s unclear if his words will hold up in court. Some speculate that he looked out of sorts, confused by the question. Erika Jayne has yet to respond to her estranged husband’s brief interview.
The RHOBH Season 11 finale airs on Wednesday, September 29. The three-part reunion begins airing in October.
