As Erika Jayne’s financial and legal woes are mounting, her salary for season 11 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been revealed.
Sources spilled mega-producer Andy Cohen gave the singer a raise as her personal life began dominating headlines.
Jayne’s lucrative salary being exposed comes after she complained about being flat broke. “I’m out here rebuilding my life but, girl, I have zero dollars,” the “XXPEN$IVE” songstress told costar Kyle Richards during a recent episode of RHOBH.
“And by the time those trustees are done with [Girardi], there’ll be nothing. So, I walk out of this with nothing,” she added.
OK! reported producers are looking to capitalize on the attention Jayne has been garnering by moving up production on season 12, with sources squealing production could resume as soon as possible.
The Dancing with the Stars alum filed for divorce from Girardi in November after 20 years of marriage. Within weeks, the estranged couple was embroiled in a messy lawsuit amid allegations they pocketed money intended for the families of the victims in the Lion Air Flight 610 plane crash.
Jayne was then slapped with a lawsuit demanding she repay $25 million to Girardi’s creditors who claim she used the money to fund her lavish lifestyle.
Her RHOBH costars have long questioned exactly what involvement the 50-year-old reality TV star played in the alleged fraud case.
The former Broadway star is in the hot seat during the explosive upcoming reunion. A sneak peek of the four-part special was released on Wednesday, October 6, featuring cast mates Jayne, Richards, Sutton Stracke, Crystal Kung Minkoff, Dorit Kemsley, Lisa Rinna and Garcelle Beauvais facing off, leaving the blonde bombshell flustered and in tears.
