The 49-year-old reality star appears to be spending all her free time getting her makeup done and taking photos in her new kitchen. Despite not saying a word about the allegations against her, Erika continues to post glam shot after glam shot on her Instagram.
Fans have been disgusted with her behavior and calling for her to be removed from the hit Bravo show. One commented, “The most tone deaf housewife ever. ?”
Last year, Erika and her estranged husband Thomas Girardi were hit with a federal lawsuit. The case was brought by the families of plane crash victims including orphans and widows. The plaintiffs had been represented by Thomas in a wrongful death suit over the crash that killed their relatives. The families won a settlement in the case but claimed Thomas did not turn over all the monies.
The suit accuses Thomas of using his client’s money to fund his own “lavish lifestyle.” One creditor believes the once-respected lawyer diverted $20 million to Erika’s entertainment company. They believe the reality star was aware or should have been aware of what was going on.
In the past couple of months, Thomas has been hit with lawsuit after lawsuit in court all accusing him of refusing to pay his bills. His creditors came together to file an involuntary Chapter 7 bankruptcy against Thomas. The federal court judge presiding over the case granted the petition and allowed the case to move forward.
A trustee will be appointed that will have full control over Thomas’s finances. They will decide what debts will be paid and if Thomas has assets that can be auctioned off. Erika will have to play some sort of role in the case because she’s still Thomas’s legal spouse.
She’s also fighting him in divorce court where she is demanding spousal support. Thomas is trying to have that request denied. A judge has yet to rule.
As The Blast first reported, Erika Jayne recently moved out of the 4-bedroom, 6-bathroom, $15 million mega-mansion she shared with Thomas. The reality star is currently shacking up in a $1.5 million home near West Hollywood. The pad is close to the Fairfax district and The Grove.
Recently, Erika moved into a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 2,015 sq ft. home which is a far cry from her former life. The property listing reads, “Elegant living room w/large barrel ceiling & bright arched windows. Kitchen includes Viking Double Ovens, Sub Zero Fridge, Thermador gas stove & sunny breakfast nook.”
Erika has been posting glamour shots in the weeks since announcing her divorce. All the photos were taken in her new pad. The property listing shows the rental being taken off the market in October. That was a month before Erika filed the divorce petition in court.
