Is Erika Jayne telling the truth?
The singer, 50, is at the center of the drama in the “RHOBH” midseason trailer as her castmates question how much she knew about her estranged husband, Tom Girardi, allegedly stealing money from his clients.
“Want to know who your friends are? Get old and go broke,” Jayne said in one scene sans glam before begging Sutton Stracke to believe her instead of believing “an article” in another scene.
Stracke, 49, wasn’t convinced by Jayne and asked their costars in another scene, “Have we been duped by the lies?”
Jayne later confronted Stracke at a dinner, telling her, “You ever call me a liar again, I’m coming for you.”
“Look at me,” she said through tears at the same dinner to the rest of the group. “Look at my f–king life.”
While there are also plenty of champagne glasses clinking as well in the trailer, the rest of Jayne’s season looks bleak as she agreed with Kathy Hilton when she proclaimed, “Everybody’s got a skeleton in their closet. My family — it all just happens to be out there.”
Jayne also agreed with Crystal Kung Minkoff’s husband Rob’s toast that a true friend “doesn’t disappear when the problems come.”
In another scene, Minkoff sat down with Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley, Stracke, Lisa Rinna and Garcelle Beauvais to discuss Jayne’s ongoing legal issues.
“She’s gonna have to answer more than she’s comfortable with,” Richards told the girls. “That’s because we deserve to know the truth.”
However, Beauvais had Jayne’s back in another scene, telling Kemsley and others, “I’m not going to s–t on her when she’s at her bottom. That’s not who I am!”
She later confronted Jayne, saying, “If what Tom did was true, then f–k Tom.”
“If he stole the money, I’d like to know where it is,” Jayne replied as Mauricio Umansky and Paul “PK” Kemsley still questioned her.
“This sucks so bad. The things that are being said are just wrong,” she said at the time. “People are believing [the allegations] and they’re everywhere and it’s terrible. I’m here, by myself, and what’s being said, I mean, it’s insane that my divorce is a sham. But nobody cares about the facts.”
Her legal drama is ongoing.
