Erika Jayne Girardi has had some time to steady herself after her life imploded with a lawsuit that alleged that Tom has embezzled millions meant to go to victims of the Lion Air Flight 610 plane crash. Since then, other potential victims have come forward saying that Tom owes them money. Now, Erika is saying that maybe some of the people who say that they are still owed money were already paid.

Soon after the filing, a deluge of lawsuits and scandals hit Tom and Erika after it was revealed that Tom was embezzling money from his clients. This summer, Erika was sued for $25 million because her company received loans from Tom’s law firm. Throughout all of this mess, Erika and Tom have not yet had their divorce finalized. Why?
In a preview clip for Part 2 of the Season 11 Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion, Erika Girardi explains why she felt she could not have left Tom earlier than she did.

Before Tom Girardi’s fall from grace, he was a celebrated lawyer supposedly fighting for the vulnerable and victimized. Part of this hero clout came from his work in the historic “Erin Brockovich case.” He stepped in to help Ed Masry and his assistant Erin Brockovich take on Pacific Gas and Electric Company in 1993 for contaminating the groundwater of Hinkley, California. The case was settled in 1996 for $333 million, a record-setting amount.

A New York Times article published October 9, 2021, says Erika’s salary for this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is “likely . . . more than $600,000.”

Now, a lawyer who’s suing her is backing up her claims, but says the case were she wore a wire for the government was a much different case where she was a victim of credit card fraud.
