“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Erika Jayne continues her ride on the tacky train by posting another glam shot of her covered in diamonds while she’s still ignoring claims she helped steal money from orphans & widows.
The 49-year-old reality star posted a photo taken in the kitchen of her modest Hollywood home. She moved out of the $6 million mansion she lived in with her estranged husband Thomas Girardi after filing for divorce amid their financial problems and his alleged health issues.
In the photo, Erika looks to be getting ready to shoot confessionals for “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” in her kitchen. A hairstylist is seen playing with her hair while she stands in front of the fridge.
The reality star is rocking an oversized white button-up with a little black corset. She covered herself in a flashy diamond necklace and blinged-out earrings. The snap wouldn’t have bothered anyone if it weren’t for her silence over accusations she helped embezzle money meant for the families of plane crash victims.
Last year, Erika and her estranged husband Thomas Girardi were hit with a federal lawsuit. Thomas, a once-powerful lawyer, is accused of diverting money meant for his clients. He allegedly used the money to fund his “lavish lifestyle” with Erika. One creditor believes Erika’s entertainment company received over $20 million from Thomas in an attempt to hide money from creditors.
One former fan used a little sarcasm writing to Erika, “The caption should be ? i stole money ? from airline crash victims and orphans and had my husband have pretend amnesia ??!!! What a ? ? queen for doing that !!! ? first person to scam on housewives history !!”
Another disgusted follower brought up Bernie Madoff writing, “Looks like you’re spending other people’s settlement money well, Erika Madoff.” The lawsuit read, “By all accounts, Girardi keeps engaging in fraud and deception in order to support a never-ending spending spree by himself and Jayne. Girardi and Jayne lead notoriously lavish lifestyles. Erika reportedly spends $40,000 per month on her “look.” Erika even performs a song called “Exxpen$ive,” featuring the hook “it’s expensive to be me.”
They added, “When asked why she and Tom required two private planes, Erika responded, “Because one is small and one is big!”10 Erika also bragged that the most expensive thing she owns is a singular piece of jewelry but would not say how much it was worth (which would presumably mean it’s more expensive than her $250,000 Lamborghini)
The plaintiffs say “On information and belief, Girardi and Jayne siphoned significant sums of money from lenders and clients and moved it out of GK’s bank accounts for personal use.”
Thomas and Erika have yet to respond to the lawsuit in court. His family is trying to get a conservatorship of him claiming he is having memory loss. His creditors [aren’t buying the excuse.
As The Blast first reported, last year, Erika moved out of the megamansion she lived in with Thomas. She was forced to downsize and is currently renting a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 2,025 sq. ft. pad near the Fairfax area.
The pad is a far cry from the lavish lifestyle Erika has grown accustomed to with her soon-to-be ex-husband Thomas.
To make things extra weird, she is reportedly living next door to actor Armie Hammer, who is going through his own scandal.
