Erika Girardi’s ‘RHOBH’ Costars Accuse Her of Lacking ‘Empathy’ after Living ‘off the Back of Victims’



Erika Girardi’s ‘RHOBH’ Costars Accuse Her of Lacking ‘Empathy’ after Living ‘off the Back of Victims’

As the women enjoyed the snow in Aspen, things got very heated for Erika Girardi on this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Erika, 51, was confronted more than once about those $750,000 earrings that her estranged husband Tom Girardi gave her 15 years ago with money allegedly owed to his clients.

After a day of skiing and snowmobiling, Erika, along with Kyle Richards and her husband Mauricio Umansky, Lisa Rinna, Dorit Kemsley, Garcelle Beauvais, Crystal Kung Minkoff, Sheree Zampino, Sutton Stracke, Diana Jenkins, and Kathy Hilton, all went out for a cozy dinner.

However, the friendly banter quickly turned toxic when Garcelle, 55, asked Erika why she wouldn’t return those controversial earrings.

Earlier that evening, Garcelle brought the topic up with Crystal, 39, when they were getting ready to go out. “That whole earring thing is, like it’s everywhere,” she said.

“Clearly, her position is that she is also a victim,” Crystal added. “But the things that you’re wearing, the things you own is an ill-gotten gain. And, like, I wouldn’t want it.”

At the group dinner, the women were talking about various designer items they own and Erika brought up an Alexander McQueen Python coat that she hasn’t worn. She then pulled out a $1,800 Bottega Veneta Clutch that she bought 15 years ago and doesn’t use but brought on the trip.

Garcelle seethed as Erika showed her the clutch. “Erika is just so used to a certain lifestyle that she’s not even putting together that, given the situation with Tom, this is not the time to be talking about these expensive bags or how much money you spent. This is not a good look. Like, what the f—?” Garcelle vented in a confessional.

Back at the table, she asked Erika what $750,000 earrings look like. “They’re $1.3 [million],” Erika quickly corrected her. She then clarified that she doesn’t know the total value but said she’d show the earrings to Garcelle the next day.

When asked if she had them with her on the trip, Erika said “of course.” Garcelle then asked if she’d want to return them. Erika looked stunned at first and replied, “If they [are] deemed not mine, then that’s the truth,” she replied.

At first, Garcelle tried to keep it light. “Well, don’t you just think you should give them up anyway?” she asked.

Erika tried to say she would return them if the court ordered her to do so, but Garcelle insisted that she should do it regardless. Erika stood her ground and said she “wanted to do what’s right” under the letter of the law. “If a judge says you should, I will.”

Garcelle countered and asked why Erika needs a judge to tell her what to do when she should just naturally do what’s right for the victims.

“Am I the one who represented them? Am I the one who signed those checks?” Erika asked in her own defense, to which Garcelle argued back, “You have something that could maybe help.”

Erika continued to defend herself, claiming that it’s a property fight.

“How do you separate the two? I couldn’t do it,” Garcelle said back. “Why wouldn’t you just go, ‘F— it. Let’s pay the victims.’ It’s not saying ‘I’m guilty.’ It’s saying, ‘I have compassion. I have a heart.'”

“Are they stolen?” Erika asked, refusing to back down. Garcelle said she didn’t know the answer to that question.

“You know what I say? I’m not guilty and how f—ing dare you to say that s— about me,” Erika said. “And I’m fighting like a f—ing devil.”

Garcelle then asked Erika if she cares the earrings are stolen and Erika said she did. “It needs to be a final order. It needs to be justice under the law and guess what? If I’m a liar, it’ll be proven I’m a liar,” she said.

The topic was temporarily dropped until the group went back to the rental house that a few of the women were staying in. Garcelle rehashed her conversation with Erika to a few of the women before calling Erika over to join the chat.

“Everybody is acting like only Erika can do something about it but guess what? If you are so passionate about it, put your money where your mouth is. Take out your earrings and donate,” said Diana, 49, in a confessional. “We can all help.”

Erika again defended her stance on wanting to go through the legal system. “I’m not going to do anything that is not required of me under the law,” she said.

“Is there something that you might want to do outside of the law?” Crystal asked.

“No, absolutely not,” Erika firmly replied. “People sued me. I have my response. Until a judge decides, that’s it.”

Garcelle questioned if Erika refusing to return the earrings was because she felt that might make her look guilty. “I’m not guilty,” Erika immediately said. “That’s why I fight as hard as I do.”

“It’s about trying to make people whole,” Crystal interjected.

“There is a place to make people whole and it is in a court of law,” Erika yelled at Crystal. “Not in the court of public opinion. You’re not letting the legal process play out.”

“Whether or not… your husband has been convicted of the crimes. Why can’t you show empathy? It’s asinine to me. I don’t understand,” Crystal said in a confessional.

Continuing, Erika yelled, “The law matters and if you don’t understand that, you’re an amateur, and get the f— out. Just because someone alleges that you did s—, you’re going to throw your hands up and say, ‘I did! Oh my God, I feel so bad! People are thinking I’m terrible!’ Hold on a f—ing minute. That’s one side of the story. Let’s tell the other f—ing side.”

Erika then asked what facts Crystal has and she replied, “That there’s dead people that money was stolen from.”

Erika argued that the class action suits have yet to be proven. “I understand that these people have passed away and I feel terrible about that,” Erika said in a confessional. “We need to find out what did or did not happen to their settlement money. That is a different fight.”

She then told the group that it’s a civil lawsuit, not criminal, and is therefore not an issue of guilt or innocence. “I’m not saying I don’t feel for the potential victims,” she said.

When questioned by Garcelle about the word “potential,” Erika stood her ground. “Yeah, because who knows if they’re true or not,” she argued. “Because someone said something does not make it true.”

In a confessional, Garcelle said with disgust, “For two decades, Erika was living this lavish lifestyle off the backs of these victims. Even if Erika is innocent, her refusing to give anything back is beyond me.”

Added Kyle, 53, in her own confessional: “If it were me in her shoes, I would be making a statement about how I do care about the victims and please be patient with the process… something along those lines.”

“I don’t give a f— about anybody else but me!” Erika said to the group after the victims were once again brought up.

She also clarified that the “real question” is whether these people were defrauded by her husband’s law firm or by her, and that she didn’t work for the firm and had no control over what was done there. Additionally, she argued that the case was still in litigation (at the time the episode was filmed.)

“Why am I catching the sins of somebody that I divorced?” she asked as the women refused to back down. “They’re not my victims.”

“Honey, I’ve been a wife that’s been left in ruins,” Erika concluded.

“People died and the families are left in the aftermath,” Kyle argued. “You’re not showing any compassion!”

Since the episode was filmed, Erika was ordered to return the earrings and a tentative ruling has since found that she had no knowledge of her estranged husband’s alleged financial crimes.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.


List Of Canceled Netflix Original Series In 2023

List of all the shows Netflix has canceled in 2023.



2023 has kicked off with a couple of big cancelations, which signals a potentially rough year coming up, which many other players throughout Hollywood will share. Here’s a look at the 2023 cancelations!


The big-budget series from the creators of DARK had big expectations and big shoes to fill.

The mystery sci-fi show was one of Netflix’s most ambitious shows in years, using state-of-the-art technology and featuring an impressive ensemble cast.

Why was 1899 canceled?

Data provided to What’s on Netflix from European SVOD analytics company Digital i suggests that the completion rate was ultimately too low and likely wasn’t growing substantially. Their data suggests only around a third of people who started the show went onto finish the title.

Inside Job

The animated series Inside Job had been initially given a season 2 renewal order back in June 2022. Still, in January 2023, the creator confirmed rumors that Netflix had reversed the decision to renew.

In a statement on Twitter, the show’s creator Shion Takeuchi said:

I’m heartbroken to confirm that Netflix has decided to cancel season 2 of Inside Job. Over the years, these characters have become real people to me, and I am devastated not to be able to watch them grow up. Reagan and Brett deserved to get their ending and finally find happiness. And I would have loved to been able to share what was in store with you all.

He added, “To everyone who watched, thank you for coming along on the ride. Even though I’m sad, it helps to know that there’s people out there who cared just as much about these characters as me.”

Netflix Movie Lou Cast: Who Stars in the Netflix Thriller?



Netflix Movie Lou Cast: Who Stars in the Netflix Thriller?

Allison Janney and Jurnee Smollett are the main attraction of the Netflix movie Lou as the two leading ladies. Janney plays a John Wick-esque character (complete with a beloved dog, but don’t worry, Jax makes it out alive!) while Smollett plays her neighbor, Hannah.

Lou is a hardened recluse living on the fringes of their secluded island, while Hannah is a single mother struggling to make ends meet to take care of her daughter, Vee.

A horrible storm hits the island, and someone kidnaps Hannah’s daughter in the midst of it, forcing her to turn to Lou for help. While searching for Vee, the two women are forced to confront some of the dark secrets from their past.

Even though Smollett and Janney are the stars, Lou has a great cast of actors that also includes Logan Marshall-Green and Greyston Holt (remember him as one of the hot werewolves from Bitten?).

Netflix movie Lou cast list

For those unfamiliar with Allison Janney, the powerhouse actress is a Hollywood staple. Throughout her many decades in the business, Janney has won countless accolades, including seven Primetime Emmy Awards, an Academy Award, and a Golden Globe Award. She has also secured two Tony nominations.

Janney first rose to prominence playing C.J. Cregg on The West Wing. More recently, she starred as Bonnie Plunkett for nine seasons in the CBS sitcom Mom. Janney won her Oscar for I, Tonya, and has also appeared in projects like Masters of Sex, The Help, Juno, and many others. Next, she’ll star in the comedy miniseries Mrs. American Pie, the comedy film The People We Hate at the Wedding, and the sci-fi drama True Love.

Jurnee Smollett has been acting since she was a kid, with recurring roles in shows like Full House and On Our Own. But most people probably know her as Jess Merriweather in Friday Night Lights. The last few years have really helped cement Smollet’s status as a superstar. She played Dinah Lance/Black Canary in Birds of Prey and is reportedly going to reprise her role in a spinoff standalone movie at HBO Max.

Smollett also delivered an incredible performance in the short-lived but acclaimed HBO series Lovecraft Country and she recently starred opposite Miles Teller and Chris Hemsworth in the Netflix thriller Spiderhead. Next, she’ll star in the courtroom drama film The Burial with Jamie Foxx and Tommy Lee Jones.

Completing the cast trifecta is Logan Marshall-Green, who plays the film’s primary antagonist, Philip. You might recall Marshall-Green playing Trey Atwood in The O.C. He also recently completed a stint on the ABC series Big Sky.

Here’s the complete cast list for the Netflix movie:

  • Allison Janney as Lou
  • Jurnee Smollett as Hannah
  • Logan Marshall-Green as Philip
  • Ridley Asha Bateman as Vee
  • Matt Craven as Sheriff Rankin
  • Greyston Holt as Chris
  • Daniel Bernhardt as Tony
  • RJ Fetherstonhaugh as Gerry
  • Andres Collantes as Deputy Torres
  • Marci T. House as Agent Lee
  • Toby Levins as Agent Hampton
