During the Monday, January 31, episode of The Real, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 55, opened up about her embattled costar's legal woes. As Radar exclusively reported, the trustee in the Chapter 7 bankruptcy claimed the singer's former attorney husband, 82, used his clients' money to purchase the baubles. Despite the allegation, Jayne, 50, has flat out refused to hand the earrings over.
The actress went on to say that by turning over the sparklers, it would be a way for Jayne to say “I have compassion” for the victims. “When [Erika] shows up to work she is diamond-ed out. She’s got a lot. Getting rid of those diamond earrings isn’t going to hurt her," Beauvais added.
Girardi's law firm owes $101 million to various creditors, as he was accused of screwing over orphans, widows, fire burn victims and countless others. Now, the trustee wants Jayne to turn over her costly earrings to pay back the debt.
The Wild Wild West star's hot take comes as The Pretty Mess author's team spent the majority of the weekend convincing the public that Jayne's legal and financial troubles were over after the case — that was originally filed in Chicago — was dismissed in the midwestern state. The case is being refiled in California.
The orphans and widows entered a dismissal against Jayne in the Illinois case with the knowledge that the claims would be refiled in California — making it easier to fight the former Chicago star in L.A., where she lives rather than across the country.
The media and Bravo fans alike took the dismissal as Jayne's mounting troubles coming to an end — however, this could not be further from the truth.
"We have not stopped pursuing @erikajayne, just switching courts. We believe we can prove she benefitted from Tom's Ponzi scheme. Her lawyer is — again — misleading the public," the attorney for the victims stated via Radar.
As it stands now, the "XXPEN$IVE" songstress still faces a lawsuit from Girardi's alleged victims, along with a $25 million lawsuit that was filed as part of her ex's bankruptcy.
