In the three-minute preview for the RHOBH Season 11 reunion, Andy Cohen tells Erika Jayne that he knows how much money she makes. Fans want to know about her net worth, especially amid her embezzlement case. It’s clear that Erika needs the reality show these days. In turn, her ongoing financial issues and divorce have given the show a ratings boost.
As TV Shows Ace previously reported, Erika is guaranteed to return for Season 12. Bravo wants to resume production as soon as possible. Meanwhile, Erika and her castmates are still dealing with the aftermath of the most dramatic season. It doesn’t look like there will be a cast shakeup anytime soon.
Erika Jayne’s net worth is questionable at best
In 2017, Erika Jayne claimed that it cost $40,000 to be her. Right now, Erika Jayne’s net worth is currently up in the air. Per Celebrity Net Worth, it’s estimated to be around $5 million, which is not much since she’s been sued for $25 million. However, the lawyers investigating Erika and Thomas Girardi’s embezzlement case believe she spent over $25 million, which was channeled from her ex-husband’s firm.
This revelation could change the reality star’s net worth. The trustee appointed to Tom’s bankruptcy case accused Erika and her company, EJ Global, of using the funds for her lavish lifestyle and career. Ronald Richards has said that he wants the money back, so the victims can rightfully receive their money.
“I gave her a week to just voluntarily return the money, but she never did,” Ronald Richards told Us Weekly. “I can’t get into the settlement discussion, but we are trying to resolve the case with her attorney. This is the $25 million that Girardi’s law firm paid on behalf of Erika to cover her expenses over a 12-year period.”
Meanwhile, Erika’s lawyer, Evan C. Borges, believes that the television personality isn’t in the wrong. Therefore, Erika doesn’t owe them any money. According to the court documents, Erika was aware of Tom’s business dealings. She didn’t mind that he helped fund her lavish lifestyle.
Her RHOBH salary may not help pay everything
Erika Jayne’s net worth included her glam squad, which was one expense that Bravo refused to cover. According to another report, her glam squad costs $500,000 per year. Erika Jayne spent a lot of money throughout her life. She even dropped a lot during an RHOBH cast trip to Dubai, which was featured on the show.
However, her lifestyle could come back to haunt her. Some wonder if she’ll ever pay the victims back. Erika claims she has no money and that she was in the dark. But not everybody buys her stories. Attorney Lisa Bloom revealed that Erika’s spending could come back to bite her.
