Erika Jayne has been on the hot seat for the entirety of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion special. The four-part series came to a head last night, as the season finale left fans with a shocking bit of info. Embattled cast member Erika Jayne has been lying to her castmates about whether she’s contacted estranged husband Tom Girardi.
Erika told host Andy Cohen that she did speak to the 82-year-old former lawyer. She said she saw his deteriorating physical condition and felt the need to reach out to see if he was doing alright. Us Weekly provided a recap of Jayne’s bombshell.
“I just wanted to make sure he was safe. Because after the pictures came out, he looked so bad that I just wanted to make sure he was in the right place.”
During the previous season of the show, Erika said she was legally unable to contact Girardi. Jayne insisted that she even went as far as to have her attorney contact Girardi’s counsel and ask them to stop trying to talk to her. As it turns out, that was all baloney.
“I have not talked to him and I cannot talk to him. He calls me every day. That’s another hard part of it. I had to ask my attorney to call his attorney to say, ‘Please stop calling Erika.’”
Erika’s bombshell comes as the reunion series concluded with this week’s final episode. Jayne has been in legal hot water ever since it was revealed that Girardi allegedly ran a charity embezzlement scheme. It is unknown at this time whether Erika Jayne was involved or will be charged with any crimes. Unaired footage from RHOBH has been subpoenad in the case, so authorities are at least taking a look at her.
