The embattled reality star and the former attorney announced they called it quits in November 2020 after over 20 years of marriage, but a year and a half later, Jayne is still struggling to completely cut ties.
"It’s difficult. There are real moments of sadness, real moments of — like when the holidays came around, you know, for Christmas, I would just remember how much fun we would have," she reminisced. "But what are you going to do with that? These things happen in life. They happen to everyone; everyone’s mourning something."
Jayne also confessed she's still in contact with Girardi despite the personal complications of the lawsuit and their drawn out divorce.
"Of course [I take his calls]," she admitted, noting her ex is "not well." The 82-year-old was moved into a senior living facility that specialized in patients with memory problems last September. "He’s in a state of decline and sometimes it’s good and sometimes [he thinks] I’m someone else. So it’s fine."

As OK! previously reported, the exes are currently locked in a lengthy lawsuit after Girardi was accused of embezzling money to pay for Jayne's "lavish lifestyle" from a legal fund meant for families of victims of a tragic 2018 plane crash.
Edelson law firm — who worked alongside the disgraced attorney in the Lion Air plane crash settlement case — claimed he had proof “money that belonged to the surviving widows and orphans of the victims of that plane crash had, in fact, been used to make payments for Erika or her companies.”
Meanwhile, Jayne has maintained her innocence, doubling down on her claim that she knew nothing about her husband's mishandling of any funds.
"I am front and center. I am the face of this instead of the lawyers that worked at the firm and referring attorneys and, you know, law funding people — instead they point to me," the "XXPEN$IVE" singer told the outlet.
"For my mental health, it’s been hard. No doubt," she added. "But again, I couldn’t lose and I was just going to fight it out every way possible and still am.”
