Erika Jayne was caught vacationing in Mexico despite her money problems and ongoing legal drama. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star posted some gorgeous photos of herself on her Instagram and it looks like she’s having some fun in the sun.
The reality tv star stunned fans with a high-waisted black swimsuit and proved that ’80s fashion is making a comeback. She captioned the fun post, “The 80’s called and I answered.”
Many fans were surprised that the reality TV star decided to take the trip given that she has spent the last year dealing with a nasty divorce with ex-husband Tom Girardi. The former couple recently slashed the price of their Pasadena mansion, and they are currently asking for 37% off the original asking price.
The gorgeous mansion has been on the market for six months, and Erika dropped the price 10 times. They were originally asking for $13 million for their 10,277 square-foot mansion, but now the struggling couple has their home listed for $8.9 million, which is still above the median asking price for homes in the area.
Even with her ongoing money problems, Erika Jayne has no interest in sitting around moping. She recently announced that she was looking to start dating again. The RHOBH star told Extra that interested suitors should “slide into my DMs and you’ll find out.”
She also told Extra that her life is turning in a positive direction. According to sources, Erika has been on a handful of dates and has even been set up by friends, but the reality TV star hasn’t braved the world of online dating just yet. Many of her dates have been with local men, and some of them work in show business.
Erika said that while she is dating again, she’s not sure if she’ll ever get remarried after her divorce from Tom. The RHOBH star said she’ll never date a lawyer. She shared that she has no issue with age differences. As long as a man is at least 25-years-old she’ll give it a try!
Erika Jayne announced her divorce from former attorney Tom Girardi nearly a year ago after the two of them got mixed up in an embezzlement scheme. Tom was accused of stealing millions from victims and families of the 2018 Lion Air Flight 610 crash. His law firm, Girardi and Keese had to file for bankruptcy.
The couple also fileed for bankruptcy in 2020, which led to their divorce, ending their 20-year marriage.
The RHOBH star was named one of the suspects in the crime and court documents claimed that she knew about the embezzlement scheme and profited from it by using the money to keep up her lavish lifestyle. Court documents claim that Tom’s firm paid Erika over $25 million while they were being investigated.
Tom’s estate sued Erika in October and is trying to get the reality TV star to pay back what she owes.
“Erika signed all of her tax returns, numerous credit card slips, and was well aware of the money she spent on the Debtor’s credit cards and the Debtor’s payment of her personal expenses,” the trustee alleged. “Her feigned willful blindness and ostrich approach to these expenditures will do absolutely nothing to limit her liability.”
Erika has continued to deny her involvement in the embezzlement scheme and told her fellow co-stars on a recent episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that she wouldn’t even know where to hide money if she had to.
The star said, “People think that Erika Jayne brought down Tom Girardi. Tom Girardi brought down Tom Girardi … I don’t want his actions to absolutely kill what I have created.”
