Jayne called out her co-stars for saying she acted like a "victim" amid her legal woes. "I have never said I was the victim. I am not a victim," Jayne told Andy Cohen and her fellow housewives.
"But you look like you were one," Sutton Stracke chimed in. "Are you f***ing kidding me? My life is upside down, Sutton," the singer hit back. "How can I not be broken? How can I not be sad? How can I not be tired? How can I not be exhausted?"
The Pretty Mess author told Cohen that she showed support for her estranged husband Tom Girardi's alleged victims several times. The host responded that how she expressed her sympathy didn't "seem to be landing with the group or with the viewers."
The blonde beauty explained that she had loved her husband and "thought he was great. Now he's allegedly defrauding widows, orphans and burn victims. How do you think I feel? … [I feel] horrible. And I’ve said that over and over."
"You also understand that there is a real boundary as to where I can and cannot go," the "Get It Tonight" singer said. "However, if anyone in these cases has been proven wronged, I want them remedied. Despite what you read, I have done everything they have asked."
"There is a very limited way in which I can express myself because we all know everything will be picked apart, parsed and possibly turned against [me]," Jayne explained. "That is why you see me answer in certain ways."
Jayne said her legal team advised her not to speak about the situation at all. "It is best in any of these situations to be quiet. What did I do? I chose to say as much as I possibly could. And I still may have f***ed myself up," she added.
Jayne also said she was upset by her co-stars wondering about her allegedly being involved in Girardi's alleged embezzlement scam and financial wrongdoings.
"I’m not surprised at the viewers," she explained. "I’m surprised at the women who are sitting right here because they know the source. They can come to me. There is no reason that any of these women should ever think that I would withhold something from them."
Jayne said that it hurt to see them mock her life and her family. "That night specifically, I felt so bad," Richards said. "Because we do care about you."
"We were trying to tell the story, and it was getting jumbled and confused, and the more it got jumbled and confused, it became almost preposterous," Kemsley explained. "It was not at all — I swear to you, hand on my heart, and I know Kyle feels this way, too — ever to make a mockery of your situation."
