Erika Girardi Is Reportedly “Saddened By The Whole Situation” With Estranged Husband Tom Girardi Amid Divorce Drama And Ongoing Legal Issues!

According to new sources, it’s been a ‘heart wrenching’ process for Erika Girardi to go from living with her estranged husband, Tom Girardi, to living on her own admit divorce drama and ongoing lawsuits.

“Erika has moved into her own home. She’s taking care of her own life at the moment. She’s paying for the house,” an insider told HollywoodLife.

Apparently, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is “saddened by the whole situation” and is also “saddened it didn’t workout because she did truly love him,” the source says. This is because Erika didn’t envision her marriage turning out this way, according to sources who say, “Nobody wanted it to end it this way.”

“She’s just focusing on her work and not thinking of dating right now,” the source continues. Yes, even if Erika recently made a quip about online dating. However, she’s not looking to return to old relationships either, according to the insider. “There’s no chance for reconciliation at all with Tom,” the source shares, “They just were not on the same page when it came to how they lived their lives anymore.”

In November 2020, Erika filed for divorce from Tom last month after more than two decades of marriage. In the filing, Erika sought spousal support and requested the court terminate its ability to award spousal support to Tom. Tom responded by asking the court to terminate its ability to award spousal support and to request that Erika star pay attorney fees and costs.

She then accused the 81-lawyer of having an affair with a California judge in a now-deleted Instagram post. “This is Justice Tricia A. Bigelow. She was f–king my husband Tom Girardi and he was paying her Saks bill and paying for her plastic surgery,” Erika wrote alongside a series of alleged text messages between her estranged husband and Bigelow.

After Erika deleted the post, Bigelow’s attorney released a statement to the Los Angeles Times on December 22, saying Erika’s “actions in maliciously doxxing the Justice were nothing short of criminal. We are considering our options to protect Justice Bigelow from further harassment.”

During another hearing last month, Keith Griffin, an attorney at Tom’s firm, revealed that the estranged husband of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was secretly hospitalized in 2020. Griffin said his boss was “unavailable in recent weeks due to a serious illness that caused him to be hospitalized for which he sought treatment.”

Tom previously failed to hire a lawyer to represent him in the case. One of his recently hired attorneys, Evan Jenness, told the judge during a December 14 hearing that he wanted Tom to go through a mental examination. “I’m unsure that he understands either the nature or the gravity of the current situation,” Jenness told the judge.

Tom is currently under fire as he is facing multiple lawsuits, including a class-action case filed by Edelson PC against both him and Erika. According to court documents obtained by the publication, the spouses have been accused of embezzling settlement money for families of the victims of Lion Air Flight 610, a 2018 crash that killed 189 people.

A judge has subsequently frozen Tom’s assets and Erika has been asked to stop selling her used clothes through the French company Vestiaire.

“There’s an asset freeze,” the judge told Erika’s lawyer in court on December 22. “His assets are frozen. I think you need to convey that to your client. … If she is selling assets that are property of Tom Girardi, you need to inform her of the danger that puts her in [of being in contempt in court].”

Erika’s attorney, Matt Wasserman, went on to question her role in the case. “Erika was completely unaware of the very serious allegations that were being made against Tom in court. Tom always handled all of the finances and that was how they handled things,” one source said. “She is just reeling from all of this but, make no mistake, Erika is a tough cookie and she isn’t stupid. She will get through this.”
