Photogs caught up with the former Broadway star as she headed to her car from a private dance class in West Hollywood, where they asked her if she thought “her costars believe her side of the story” when it comes to the legal and financial woes she and her ex are facing.
One individual who certainly doesn’t believe Jayne’s story, claiming all of her tears on RHOBH are just for show, is an ex-employee of Girardi’s, Kim Archie.
“There’s been waterproof mascara since 1938 — before we were all born — so I’m sure she could get waterproof mascara,” Archie, the former legal consultant at Girardi's firm, Girardi Keese, told host Heather McDonald on her podcast “Juicy Scoop” Tuesday, referring to Jayne’s breakdown on a recent episode of the hit Bravo series. “She likes big sunglasses. There are scenes that somebody posted where she’s inside with sunglasses. So she’s sitting in bright sunlight with non-waterproof mascara, you know, just sobbing.”

McDonald noted that it’s “natural” to wipe your tears after you’ve been crying, which Jayne didn’t do as she wept to costar Kyle Richards. “That whole scene — and I watched it — did she take acting classes? I thought she went to, like, an art high school in Atlanta,” Archie said. “She needs to get her money back from any classes because nobody was buying any of that. I mean, that was terrible acting. It was horrible.”
The “Painkillr” songstress — who filed for divorce from Girardi in November after 22 years of marriage — had several meltdowns on the July 14 episode of RHOBH while discussing her divorce. She also broke her silence regarding the allegations she and Girardi embezzled million of dollars from his clients.
“My divorce is not a sham,” Jayne tearfully told Richards. “It’s just not. Nobody wants to be in the position I’m in right now. It is really unenviable. Being the possible target of a federal criminal investigation is like, not cool. To have all those things said about you which are not true, and then to have everyone, basically, question everything. It’s lonely and it’s quiet and you would be shocked by how quickly people turn on you.”
During a confessional, the 50-year-old reality star continued to distance herself from her estranged spouse and denied any connection to Girardi’s possible wrongdoings. “People think that Erika Jayne brought down Tom Girardi. Tom Girardi brought down Tom Girardi,” the reality star said. “I don’t want his actions to absolutely kill what I’ve created.”
