Dorit Kemsley Says Erika Girardi Will ‘Absolutely’ Attend ‘RHOBH’ Season 11 Reunion Amid Embezzlement Allegations!

Dorit Kemsley recently appeared on The Slut Pig podcast where The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star spilled some tea about her co-star Erika Girardi.

Despite the embezzlement allegations against her estranged husband, Thomas Girardi, Dorit ensured fans that the Pretty Mess singer will be at the upcoming RHOBH season 11 reunion.

During a rapid-fire segment, podcast host Christian Gray Snow asked Kemsley if Erika will participate in the Season 11 reunion taping of the Bravo hit reality series.

“Do you think Erika will show up to the reunion this season given her situation,” he asked, according to  Radar Online.

“I absolutely do,” Dorit responded.

Kemsley notes that she and her co-stars were shocked to learn about the allegations. 

“This was obviously all unfolding as we were filming and we would get very little bits,” she explained. “We're learning as the world is learning about it by the press.”

Saying it was “difficult to navigate" while filming, Dorit continued, “I felt very much for Erika.”

Calling the situation one of those things “you can't really wrap your head around,” Dorit expressed how shocked she was to learn about the allegations.

As previously reported, it was revealed this week that the Pretty Mess author may have to repay settlement funds intended for her estranged husband’s former clients amid allegations that Tom’s firm gave Erika’s companies $20 million over the years. The Ruigomez family, who were featured in Hulu’s The Housewife and the Hustler, can pursue a collections lawsuit against Erika to obtain the $11 million they are owed from Tom.

“The Ruigomez Family, the Girardi Trustee and the GK Trustee shall cooperate with each other with their collection efforts against Erika,” the court documents obtained by Us Weekly read.

Erika and Tom made headlines in November 2020 when the Bravo reality star filed for divorce after 20 years of marriage. The following month, the estranged couple was sued for fraud and embezzlement. 

In addition to accusing them of swindling $2 million in settlement funds intended for families of victims of a 2018 plane crash, class action firm Edelson PC claimed in federal court documents that the divorce was “simply a sham attempt to fraudulently protect Tom’s and Erika’s money from those that seek to collect on debts owed by Tom and his law firm.”

Tom faced a second lawsuit later that month, alleging that his company breached a written agreement and conversation with Wells Fargo Vendor Financial Services. The bank sought immediate payment on the $882,715 outstanding bill.

In September 2020, Tom told the court that he lost millions of dollars and has “no money” left. The 82-yar-old was placed under a temporary conservatorship in February when his brother assumed control of his daily activities and personal care. One of Tom’s attorneys claimed in court in December 2020 that he was hospitalized for a “serious illness,” raising questions about his mental competency. Court documents revealed in March that Tom was diagnosed with late-onset Alzheimer’s and dementia.

However, in July 2021, a judge ruled that some former clients of Tom can pursue a collections lawsuit against Erika. According to court records obtained by PEOPLE, Tom's former clients, Joseph Ruigomez, Jaime Ruigomez, and Kathleen Ruigomez, will be able to collect the $11 million they are owed by him per a 2020 litigation.
