Authorities have served a subpoena to Bravo over “Real Housewives” footage in the ongoing Erika Jayne criminal case, according to Fox News. Social media is rife with rumors about the potential use of unaired “Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills” footage against Erika in court.
Attorney Jay Eldeson said of the development: “We believe that Bravo has hundreds of hours of unaired footage, as well as documentary evidence, which directly relates to this case.”
He continued: “So far, Bravo has chosen to use the Girardi embezzlement scandal to increase ratings and make significant money for itself. 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.”
The statement further read: “We are hoping that Bravo changes course and decides to stop protecting Erika and its own bottom line and not make a bad decision to impair our investigation and help us recover much needed money for the victims.”
Erika’s attorney, on the other hand, has referred to the subpoena as a “fishing expedition,” saying they have already provided information regarding Erika’s bank accounts as well as other relevant financial details.
“I keep explaining that there is no hidden treasure, which we have supported by providing counsel for the bankruptcy trustee with all relevant bank account and financial information in Erika’s possession,” Evan C. Borges said.
