Tom Is “at the Absolute Bottom” on Her List of Priorities.
Tom Girardi and Erika Girardi’s divorce is not likely to be finalized any time soon, according to Erika Girardi.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star said on Wednesday that she places her divorce “at the very bottom” of her list of priorities while juggling ongoing legal issues relating to her alleged involvement in Tom’s embezzlement scandal.
In November 2020, Erika, 50, requested a divorce from Tom, 82, after nearly 20 years of marriage due to growing accusations of racketeering and embezzlement against both her ex and his business.
There were both criminal and civil accusations, the latter of which also named Erika. Tom was accused of stealing money from a settlement for the loved ones of victims of a plane tragedy in 2018, among other places.
Erika claims she was uninformed of Tom’s unlawful activities, which led to the California Federal Court’s decision to prevent him from practicing law.
Erika told ET, “I know the truth, I know what’s coming, I know what’s occurring. “More sophisticated ears are not willing to leap on sensationalized headlines and are willing to step back and look at the complete picture.”
Tom is under his younger brother’s conservatorship and has been identified as having late-onset Alzheimer’s and dementia. Since July 2021, he has been in a nursing home with round-the-clock care.
Erika told ET that she believes that viewers of the allegations who watched them unfold on television “misunderstand” her “worry” and “compassion” for the victims.
Again, Erika said, “People need to understand that this is an extremely complex situation. “I’ve come right up to the line of what I can and cannot say,” the speaker said.
Erika and her business, EJ Global LLC, was recently the targets of more allegations that she served as the “frontwoman” for Tom’s money “scheme.”
Erika “served as the ‘frontwoman’ of the organization, selling to the world (including unwary clients) that Girardi Keese was successful,” according to documents reviewed by PEOPLE.
According to the records, Erika still lies about her own involvement in the incident in an effort to help Tom and the others get away with it.
Although not everything has been resolved yet, Erika told ET that she believes her legal fights are nearing their “light at the end of the tunnel.”
“[The light] is slow to appear, but that’s OK,” she explains. “I was prepared for this. So I’m going to keep fighting. I mean, that’s just how things are. They simply continue. I won’t give up.”
Erika acknowledged that the past 18 months have been “very turbulent,” but she insisted that she has never given up on trying to tell her side of the story.
She remarked, “I’ve just worked really hard to keep telling my narrative, my reality, and really shout it from the rooftops.” “And it seemed like I hadn’t been heard or didn’t want to be heard a lot of the time,” she continued.
Bravo will debut The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET.
