In the midst of a divorce, health problems, and a mess of legal issues, the Pasadena, California estate of Erika Jayne and estranged husband Tom Girardi continues to drop in price. The couple has been trying to sell the property for over six months.

Originally on the market for $13 million, Us Magazine reports that the price was lowered to $8.2 million on November 15. The home was built by famous architect Myron Hunt in 1928. Hunt also designed the infamous Ambassador Hotel, site of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy.

The house sits on a spacious 1.72-acre lot. It includes four bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a pool, five fireplaces, a chapel, and a library. Amenities also include a sauna, guest house, walk-in pantry, and wine cellar.

This is the fourth time the asking price has been reduced. The couple is desperate to move the property as their divorce and Girardi’s legal troubles loom. The couple was sued for embezzling funds from victims of a plane crash.


Jayne has not been charged with a crime in relation to the alleged embezzlement. She spent the bulk of her time on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion defending herself. The intense series raised serious questions about whether she was involved or even had any knowledge of Girardi’s shady dealings.

$8.2 million for a beautiful California estate doesn’t sound like a bad deal. Perhaps some savvy investor will gobble up the home soon. Maybe the negative association with Girardi is keeping potential buyers away. Time will tell.
