After being diagnosed with late-onset Alzheimer's disease and dementia earlier this year, the 82-year-old was placed in a conservatorship with his brother at the helm.
"So yesterday was the hearing for Tom's conservatorship so that his brother could take over his affairs. So someone sent me an article about what was said in court," the singer told Richards and Rinna. "And there was just this one piece of it that just really bothered me. It says Tom's brother asked the court to give him the authority to place Tom in 'a facility that treats neurocognitive disorders such as dementia,'" she explained.
Jayne told her pals that she feels "ready to have a nervous breakdown. Because regardless of what is going on with him legally, this is someone I was married to for 22 years."

Jayne said that she was against Girardi being put in a group home because her grandmother, who had "very bad dementia," was put in a home. "This is a very difficult thing because I watched my grandmother die. And to see this happen again..." Jayne said in a confessional.
The blonde beauty said that she thinks Girardi needs a caretaker. "But I don't think that he needs to be in a home like I saw my grandmother in. I know what they do to you in there. It's supposed to be great care. But if they lash out, then they medicate you. The only way is down is what I am saying," she added.
She said she felt Girardi would be left alone to "rot." Richards and Rinna asked if Girardi's family was involved. "It feels like he is of no use to them. So f*** it," Jayne said.
Jayne alleged that Girardi's family "don't want the stain. They don't want the public scrutiny. They don't want being associated. It is tragic all the way around." "It's a nightmare all across the board. And every day it unfolds a little bit more and more," she said.
Although Jayne filed for divorce in November, she still cares about her estranged husband. "No matter what, I can't be married to the man. But I certainly don't want him in some facility where he's not taken care of and discarded. You know, that is just something that I don't feel is okay," she explained.
"Want to know who your friends are? Get old and go broke," Jayne said.
