Home » Erika Jayne Names Lisa Rinna as “Biggest Supporter” Amid Divorce Drama and Says She is ‘Done Protecting’ Husband Tom Girardi
Erika Jayne is expected to speak candidly about her split from Thomas Girardi on the upcoming 11th season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
According to a new report, Erika is “not holding back” when it comes to her on-camera chatter about Thomas and will reportedly talk about as much as she is legally able to do so as she receives support from a number of her castmates, including Lisa Rinna, who has been named as her “biggest support.”
“Erika will address her divorce on the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Legally, there is only so much she is allowed to say, but she has been advised on what she can put out there,” an insider told Us Weekly on December 29. “Viewers will also finally hear the other Housewives‘ thoughts on Erika and Tom’s divorce.”
“She’s going to tell her story and she’s not going to hold back. In the past when they filmed, Erika protected Tom at all costs, but this time around is going to be different,” the source continued.
Meanwhile, a second source confirmed that cameras were not rolling on December 18 when Erika posted and deleted a screenshot of texts and images exchanged between Thomas and his mistress, Tricia A. Bigelow, whose lawyer recently confirmed their romance.
“There is a whole back story to the text messages being released, but the other Housewives weren’t with Erika when she released those,” the insider shared.
As for Erika’s biggest supporter, the first insider confirmed that title belonged to Lisa Rinna.
“She has been her biggest support among the cast,” the source shared.
Erika filed for divorce from Thomas in November after over two decades of marriage. In the weeks since, Thomas has been hit with a number of lawsuits, one of which Erika was dragged into.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 will air on Bravo sometime in 2021.
