Erika Jayne Pat the Puss Girardi protested the sale of her, and Toms grifted $16 million Pasadena home in court last month. Still, unfortunately for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member, her request was denied.
Following Erikas attempt to stop the home from being sold as part of the ongoing bankruptcy proceedings against her and her now-estranged husband, Thomas Girardi, she insisted she should be awarded a $600,000 share from the potential proceeds; however, robust evidence against her has surfaced as trustees prepare to put the property on the market.
“Breaking: In connection with an opposition to [Erika Jayne]’s request to get a part of the $600,000 exemption from Tom Girardi’s house, a lender has provided damaging signatures showing her direct involvement in the borrowing by [Tom], and this will become powerful evidence against her in any future case if she tries to claim she didn’t know what was going on,” attorney Ronald Richards revealed in a series of tweets shared on April 6.
“These purportedly signed documents would undercut that position,” he continued. “She was assisting in the loan and, in fact, gave a priority to the lender over her own personal assets.”
When a Housewives fan asked Ronald to explain the legal jargon in layman’s terms, he added, “She may claim she didn’t know Tom was broke or borrowing a lot of money, but this negates any innocent housewife defense.”
In another Twitter post shared over the weekend, Ronald confirmed Erika and Thomas’s former marital home would hit the market for just $13 million.
“This just in. Erika and Tom’s residence is approved to hit the market for $13,000,000 with a 4% commission. This is much lower than what was previously valued,” he stated. “Before lenders, we are a net of $12.5M, and that is a generous price. Girardi will be evicted soon as they will price.”
“The key takeaway is now that the listing is authorized, it should be in escrow quickly in this hot [southern California] real estate market,” Ronald added.
Erika and Tom are currently accused of embezzling millions of dollars from his former clients and owing millions in back taxes, and stiffing other lenders.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 is expected to return sometime later this spring or summer on Bravo.
