Erika Jayne spoke about her love for her now-estranged husband, Thomas Girardi, on the June 2 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which was filmed at the end of October, just days before she filed for divorce.
As her husband prepares to appear in court for the first time since his brother, Robert Girardi, was named as his temporary conservator, Erika was seen chatting with her co-stars about one of the things she loved about Thomas.
“I’m easygoing believe it or not,” Erika told the women. “I’m really content to let people be who they are because I like to be myself. That’s one of the things I love about Tom the most is he lets me be myself.”
While Erika was seen gushing about her husband during her girls trip to Lake Tahoe, she filed for divorce from the once-famed attorney five days later on November 3, just days after returning to their $13 million home in Pasadena.
As fans may recall, Thomas admitted during a court appearance in September 2020 that he had “maybe a couple thousand” dollars left in a personal bank account.
“At one point I had about $80 million or $50 million in cash. That’s all gone. I don’t have any money,” he claimed at the time.
As for where Erika stood amid the legal drama, an insider told Us Weekly in December 2020 that she was “completely unaware” of the serious allegations being brought against Thomas.
“Tom always handled all of the finances and that was how they handled things. Erika feels betrayed by Tom because she completely trusted him,” the source shared.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
