REAL Housewives Of Beverly Hills’ Erika Jayne revealed her husband Tom Girardi was “unconscious for 12 hours” after “driving off a cliff” in a scary crash in 2017.
The Bravo star cried as she made the shocking confession – which also included confirmation Tom cheated during the marriage – on the same day the IRS froze all of the couple’s multi-million dollar assets in December.
Erika, 50, joined her RHOBH cast mates at co-star Kyle Richard’ Palm Springs mansion for a desert getaway from the city.
Kyle, 52, along with her gal pals were in disbelief as they discussed Erika’s financial and legal disaster prior to her arriving at the home.
As soon as Erika got to the estate, she was met with hugs from Kyle, Lisa Rinna, Dorit Kemsley and Crystal Kung Minkoff.
“I’m not okay and I’m not going to be okay for a really long time. It’s terrible! It’s all bad news all the time,” Erika admitted.
Talking about Tom’s decreasing mental state, she said: “Tom was changing. This was over time. When you’re slowly watching someone unravel, that’s a hard thing to do.”
In 2017, Tom got into a car accident that he and Erika played off as no big deal and everyone thought he just broke his ankle as a result. Everyone thought it was minor. She said in an episode in 2017: “Tom’s okay, car’s not okay but he’s fine.” Erika reveals in tonight’s episode that Tom actually “drove off a cliff” and was “unconscious for 12 hours but no one knows that. I know because I found him.” She adds: “he had a serious head injury, broke his shoulder, snapped his ankle and broke his clavicle. He wasn’t with the car he was down the hill when I found him. Somehow after living in our house for 30 plus years, he takes a back road, goes behind the house and tumbles out of the car. He finally called me and I said ‘where have you been’ and I just assumed he was with some other woman.”
The group looks shocked and Kyle asks: “Hold on, what woman?” Erika says “I don’t know, any of them. Take your pick.” Kyle responds: “So that means he was cheating on you?”
Erika says: “You guys have no idea what I’ve been living through. This is my life. I never had gone through my husbands phone, I never touched his papers. But after Yolanda divorced David, I just opened the phone and was like ‘wow okay!’ I found the evidence. I found pictures and texts. I assume it was years long. He doesn’t deny it. I will be okay but I am not okay right now.”
When Kyle asks why she didn’t leave when she found out, Erika says: “Where am I going? Where would I go? He said ‘this is my house.’ He made that clear.”
