Erika Jayne is determined to leave this not-so-“Pretty Mess” behind her.
In part two of the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Season 11 reunion, the embattled Bravolebrity, 50, told host Andy Cohen that she is finding ways to “survive” after facing public backlash for her alleged involvement in an alleged embezzlement scandal with estranged husband Tom Girardi.
“Whatever Tom Girardi did or did not do, that’s on him,” the “XXPEN$IVE” singer said. “But I know that a lot of his decision-making is being pointed this way now.”
She continued, “His life is over. He’s in his 80s. He’s in a memory care facility. His career is over and done. I just turned 50. I cannot allow all of this to destroy me and take me to a place that I cannot recover. I have to survive this.”
Jayne is currently fighting a series of lawsuits over allegations that her extravagant lifestyle and part-time pop career were bankrolled by cash from 82-year-old Girardi’s now-defunct and bankrupt law firm, Girardi and Keese.
She was later accused of using the couple’s November 2020 divorce filing as a “sham attempt” to hide assets and protect their money from plane crash and gas explosion burn victims, whom Girardi represented, seeking to collect debts.
“[The bankruptcy trustee has] … got to sort out what money was supposed to go where. And at this point, quite honestly, I have to worry about myself,” said Jayne, who became visibly emotional at the reunion and asked for a tissue to dry her tears. “So, that’s why I’m feisty.”
As Jayne mentioned, Girardi is currently residing at an assisted-living facility in Burbank, Calif., after a late-onset Alzheimer’s disease and dementia diagnosis. The disbarred lawyer has also been placed in a conservatorship that is overseen by his brother Robert.
“We’ve seen how disheveled [he is] and how absolutely horribly he has deteriorated since I left in November,” the reality star said, acknowledging previous claims she made about Girardi’s declining mental health and its contribution to the dissolution of their marriage.
Jayne asserted, “So what I have been saying is true.”
Part three of the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Season 11 reunion airs Wednesday, Oct. 27, at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
