Kyle Richards says his friend “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is “OK” following Hulu’s damning documentary “The Housewife and the Hustler,” which airs this week.
“I mean, you know, it’s obviously a tough time,” Richards, 52, told Access Hollywood on Wednesday, “but she’s okay. “
Jayne, 49, and her ex-husband Tom Girardi were the subjects of the Hulu / ABC News documentary, which explored the former couple’s long list of legal issues.
One of the lawsuits covered was a case filed by Edelson PC, a class action company, on behalf of a number of victims of the Boeing plane crash, who accused Girardi, 82, of hijacking settlement funds intended to help victims of Lion Air Flight. 610.
Jayne filed for divorce last November in what some believe was an attempt to protect those funds.
“While Erika publicly filed for divorce this month, on information and belief, this ‘divorce’ is simply a mock attempt to fraudulently protect Tom and Erika’s money from those seeking to collect debts owed by Tom. and his law firm GK ”, alleged prosecution.
That case is ongoing and meanwhile the former couple’s mansion is listed for $ 13 million in a bankruptcy sale.
Jayne received another blow on Tuesday when her own lawyers abandoned her as a client after the Hulu special aired.
Dinsmore & Shohl LLP has filed documents to step down as Jayne’s lawyer in Girardi’s Chapter 7 bankruptcy case.
In court records obtained by Page Six, attorneys said the Bravo star had been warned of “the potential consequences of not finding a replacement lawyer on time.”
Jayne previously denied any knowledge of Girardi’s alleged crimes, stating in the “RHOBH” Season 11 trailer, “No one knows the answer except him,” in reference to his ex.
In the document, Law360 reporter Brandon Lowrey explained how difficult it will be for Jayne to part with Girardi’s lawsuits.
« [Tom and Erika are] together in this bankruptcy proceeding, ”the reporter said. “A lot of these debts they owe in bankruptcy proceedings [they] must together, maybe. It’s going to be hard for her to say that she didn’t know something was going on.
