Dana Wilkey Slams Michael Rapaport For Defending Erika Jayne Amid Ongoing Legal Drama!

Dana Wilkey aka Pam calls out Michael Rapaport for defending Erika Jayne after he slammed The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fandom for turning on her amid Tom Girardi’s divorce and ongoing legal drama.

The former RHOBH friend shared a clip via her Instagram Stories where she called out Rapaport. 

“OK so here’s my thoughts on Michael Rapaport,” she began. “So Michael Rappaport went on Wendy Williams and Watch What Happens Live and he stood up for Erika and yelled at the fans – basically calling them a—holes for sticking up for Erika after she gave them so many years of good TV.”

“Completely ignoring the fact that there’s like – you know plane victims, families that didn’t get their money and that she’s been showing off her wealth for years with basically money that came from bad proceeds,” she continued. “OK so let’s just put that aside for a second and let’s forget – let’s pretend that she did turn over her financials when she didn’t – let’s pretend that she wasn’t a director on the companies that had nothing to f—n do with EJ Global but had to do with financial brokering of loans and let’s just put that all aside.”

She added, “Like why the f—k is this guy going on a media tour to defend her unless – maybe – he is dating her. Does he drive a white BMW?”

If you recall, Rapaport was asked to share his thoughts on the legal drama surrounding Erika when he appeared on WWHL a few weeks ago.

“[Erika] has handled herself with as much class and dignity and grace under probably as much scrutiny as any housewife has ever come under,” he said. “All you fake fans that have turned your back on this woman who has given you so much for so many years... She is innocent until proven guilty.”

He added, “How dare you, shame on you, 'Free Britney' yes, but 'Free Erika Jayne'.”

Michael tweeted a segment of his speech on Twitter and Erika replied, “Love you Michael Rapaport,” with a heart emoji.

The news comes after it was revealed last month that the Pretty Mess singer 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. 

According to court docs, Erika revealed that she “has nothing to hide” and has already expressed a “full willingness to cooperate and produce” documents to the court. In newly filed documents via Radar Online, the Bravo reality star said she will turn over all bank and financial records. However, she wants the lawyers to agree to not leak the documents.
