Legal woes: Her ex Girardi, 82, faces allegations of misappropriation of millions of funds intended for families of plane crash victims, while Jayne has been implicated in the lawsuit after it was revealed that she would have pocketed $ 25 million in expenses from her elderly husband
Her ex Girardi, 82, faces allegations of misappropriation of millions of funds intended for the families of plane crash victims, while Jayne has been involved in the lawsuit after it was revealed that she reportedly pocketed $ 25 million in expenses from her eldest husband.
However, Jayne appeared defiant on the reunion show as she applauded calls for her to be removed from the show as a result.
“Why should I be fired?” Jayne spat. “Why do you assume I did something?” Why do we not let the legal process take place? ”
She added, “You heard a side… and a lot of bulls *** on that side. Give me a chance to defend myself. Look at me. I’m up for the challenge. Watch me do it.”

Jayne and Girardi were both named accused in a federal lawsuit filed in December, alleging they had stolen funds intended for families, including widows and orphans, of the victims of the Lion Air plane crash in 2018.
Tom had his California license revoked in March 2021 after the Los Angeles Times reported he had been sued more than 100 times.
He had also been the subject of numerous complaints to the bar alleging financial embezzlement involving millions of dollars owed to clients, including female cancer victims and a burn victim.
Andy asked Erika if her lawyers had ever advised her to quit the show and she replied that they had.
“And then I said, ‘No, because I have nothing to hide. And they said, “Well, you know that shit can backfire on you.” Everything can be analyzed, twisted, turned around and yes, maybe turned against you. Whether it’s true or not, it almost doesn’t matter at this point, ”Erika said.
Andy asked Erika if she had ever thought about quitting the show and she admitted that she had thought about it.

“But I’m not a let go and I wanted to honor my commitment. I was not going to run away from what awaited me, ”said Erika.
Andy pointed out that without her ex-husband’s income, the show was now her main job and asked her how much of that was factored into her decision. She said it didn’t factor into her decision back then, but it was more of a consideration now.
The hour-long episode was the first of four reunion shows for a turbulent Season 11 that was dominated by Erika’s divorce and the legal issues that followed.
Andy at the start of the meeting asked Erika if she was ready to finally sort out her situation and Erika said she was happy to share what she could.

“It’s the hardest part of my life,” Erika said.
“I can imagine,” Andy replied.
Two weeks before the meeting, Lisa Rinna, 57, visited Erika at her home and asked her if she was going to show up for the meeting. She said her people said she wasn’t.
So true: “There are going to be winners and losers,” said Erika
– I’m going, Erika told him. “I’m not letting go.”
Erika told her that she had dreamed that they were at the meeting and that there was going to be gunshots and gunshots.
“There will be winners and losers,” Erika said.
“Well that’s life baby,” Lisa replied.
