ERIKA Jayne was slammed for taking 11 months to address husband’s “alleged victims” in a “staged” statement at tonight’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion.
Part one of the explosive four-episode reunion began with a bang as the Bravo star finally addressed the widows, orphans and others who accused her husband Tom Girardi of embezzling millions of their dollars.1
Right off the bat, Erika, 50, is asked by host Andy Cohen if her attorney’s advised her to quit RHOBH due to being wrapped up in her estranged husband’s legal scandal.
When Andy, 53, begged the question, the Pretty Mess singer responded: “They did. And I said no because I have nothing to hide.
“And they said, ‘this s**t will be twisted around’ and could be used against you. I’ve thought about it but I’m not a quitter.
“I didn’t want to runaway from everything that’s coming at me. So I stayed.”
She then publicly addressed the victims for the first time since the case first became news back in November 2020.
When Andy asked what the biggest misconception people have of her is, Erika insisted: “That I’m cold and have no sympathy.
“But I’m in an almost impossible situation. And anyone who has been wronged, I want them to be made whole.
“I’m talking about the alleged victims of the alleged wrongdoings from Tom and it’s important people hear that from me.”

Viewers slammed the 'miserable' judges of Channel 4's Handmade: Britain's Best Woodworker last night for being 'too harsh' on contestants.
The first episode of the new show, which has been dubbed 'Bake off for wood', saw nine amateur carpenters asked to build a show-piece bed in the 'Big Build' challenge, and tackling a technical task.
Deciding who would be leaving were two industry heavy weights; award-winning architect Alex De Rijke and founder of the London School of Furniture Making Helen Welch.
However viewers slammed the programme, declaring the challenge to build a bed in the first episode was too difficult. Others said the judges were too critical, with one writing: 'Blimey the judges are a bit fierce.'© Provided by Daily Mail (
Starting the programme, Alex explained: 'Wood has soul. You have to respond to that as a designer and as a maker.
'I want good quality and I want simplicity but I know that's not easy to achieve.'
Meanwhile Helen said: 'I'm not going to be very forgiving if the finish is very rough and ready.'
The first task saw the builders tasked with crafting a double bed, at least 2 metres high, and 'beautifully constructed', showing a good understanding of joinery and an effective use of wood.© Provided by Daily Mail (
Speaking to contestant Rada about his hope to build a Japanese style bed, Alex told him: 'Your design makes it sound complicated and I'm all about the virtue of simplicity.'
And later speaking about Tim's decision to build a 'ship-bed', he told fellow judge Alex: 'What Tim is doing is of course highly eccentric but it is a crazy design.'
She added: 'It makes it sound like he's bitten off more than he can chew.'
Meanwhile in the skills challenge, the amateur carpenters had 90 minutes to make a printing block.
During the judging, they told Mandy hers 'wasn't a good print', while Billy was told: 'Your tree could be a cauliflower.'
The carpenters returned to the tent to continue their bed designs, before the judges once again critiqued Billy's design.
Alex said it was 'do or die' for Billy as they raised concerns they would be able to see the joinery in his wooden bed.

Tim's whimsical bed shaped like a boat was slated by Alex, who told him: 'It could have rocked like a simple rocking horse does. It's a missed opportunity. I'm really sad about that.'
Helen added: 'There is some really iffy joinery going on.'
Meanwhile Alex went even further, commenting: 'Iffy is not a word, unforgivable is a word.'
And art school graduate Jade was told her intricately carved headboard 'didn't work', with Helen explaining: 'You could have decided to do something more structural.'© Provided by Daily Mail ( © Provided by Daily Mail (
Helen later said: 'It's a bit of a mess for me.'
However it was Chantelle who was ultimately given the boot for her 'wasteful' sculptural design.
Many of those watching felt the judges were 'too harsh' on the contestants, with one writing: 'The judges don't come across well at all!'© Provided by Daily Mail (
Another wrote: 'These creative competitions often stand or fall by their judges.
' That's where #AllThatGlitters fell down, and I really don't like the horribly men judges on #Handmade. It'd be terrible without Mel.'
A third commented: ''I really hoped that this #Handmade woodwork show on Channel 4 would be the next Pottery Throwdown/Bake Off/Sewing Bee but it hasn't taught us about woodworking skills or techniques, the judges are cold and they should have starter smaller (e.g. simple boxes before beds etc!'Read more
