Erika Jayne “RHOBH” co-stars are starting to doubt not just her involvement in Tom Girardi’s continuing legal fight, but also their ability to escape her.
Sutton Stracke said on the most recent episode of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” that Jayne placed all of the ladies “in a bad position” and that she wasn’t convinced by the singer’s claims of innocence.

“I’m not sure how much I want to be around my friend during this time.” Stracke said, shocking the gathering.
The segment featured snippets from the group reading a scathing December Los Angeles Times storey headlined “The legal titan and the ‘Real Housewife’: The rise and fall of Tom Girardi and Erika Jayne,”
Stracke said on Wednesday’s show with Lisa Rinna and Kyle Richards, “They used the term “Ponzi scheme.”
“Is there going to be a prison break?” Richards was inquiring.
“If he’s found guilty, he’ll go to jail.” Stracke explained to the ladies who were taken aback. “It would be an issue if Erika’s company accepted these funds in her name. That is not a favourable sign.”

Richards then said that she believes Erika Jayne is stepping in for Girardi, but she is unsure “how to put this puzzle together.”
While Girardi, 82, and Jayne, 50, were sued in December 2020 by a class-action law firm on behalf of Lion Air Flight 610 victims for allegedly embezzling settlement money after their November 2020 divorce, Girardi’s legal problems had been mounting for years.
Girardi’s business connections with other claimed victims were documented in a Hulu video titled “The Housewife and the Hustler.”
Jayne has not been charged with any crimes, but she has had to deal with the consequences of being named secretary of one of his LLCs and collecting funds via her business, EJ Global. All of the couple’s lawsuits are still pending, with Girardi recently exercising his Fifth Amendment right to remain quiet.
“RHOBH” airs Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. ET on Bravo.
