REAL Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne accused her ex-BFF Kyle Richards of mocking her ongoing legal situation, involving claims she help steal millions.
The 50-year-old TV personality, who’s been accused of helping her ex-husband Thomas Girardi allegedly steal money from his clients, called out her co-star for not being supportive.
In E! Online’s clip from the next RHOBH reunion segment, Erika opened up about “keeping score” on which of her friends are being there for her through her legal troubles and which ones aren’t.
Host Andy Cohen asked, ”So who is for you, and who is against you?,” to which she responded: “I don’t know, you should ask them.”
After she added that she’s definitely taking note of how her co-stars have been acting since her legal drama began unfolding, Kyle jumped in to tell her side of things.
The 52-year-old said: “Can I say something? Because I’ve been reading stories in the tabloids or whatever online that you were upset with me.
“I just hope you know that we were in such a difficult position, and there was many things I know that you couldn’t say, but then I thought, there’s things that you could say to help us understand a little more, which was very complicated.”
Erika wasn’t about to let Kyle put all the blame for the tension in their friendship on her, though, and shared which of Kyle’s actions most upset.

“The thing that hurt me the most was to watch that dinner with you and Mauricio [Umansky] and you [Dorit Kemsley] and PK [Kemsley],” Erika explained, while pointing to both Kyle and Dorit on the reunion couches.
Looking saddened by it all, she added: ”To watch the four of you mock my life and mock my family really hurt me.”
Erika split from ex Tom in November 2020, and they were hit with a number of lawsuits shortly afterward.
The former lawyer was accused of stealing millions from his clients, including orphans and widows.
Despite claiming she was not aware of Tom’s wrongdoings, the Bravo star has found herself at the center of the legal drama.
Erika was accused of “hiding her bank statements,” as a trustee’s special litigation counsel confirmed that Tom’s law firm transferred about $20 million to her many businesses.
During the latest RHOBH season, Kyle had previously shown her disdain for Erika and how she was reacting to her whole situation.
Erika had called herself “courageous” during her ongoing legal battle, instead of the “real victims,” which upset both her ex-BFF and fans.
While talking to co-star Kyle in one scene, Erika said: “I did read this morning that the bankruptcy trustees want to take the house and possibly evict Tom, so we’ll see.
“I’m out here rebuilding my life, but girl, I have zero dollars, and by the time those trustees are done with him, there will be nothing. So I walk out of this with nothing.”
Erika claimed that she told her lawyers she “expects nothing” out of it all, and her lawyers “looked at [her] and said, ‘That is the most courageous thing I’ve ever heard.’”
She continued, as she took another sip of her champagne: “Every day brings a brand new disaster. It’s just full of f**king bulls**t.”
Kyle, like fans, were shocked to hear Erika call herself brave and strong, instead of about the actual victims involved in the legal situation.
In a confessional, Kyle said: “Nobody wants to see themselves with nothing, but, obviously the victims here are the ones that need to be paid the money. It’s plain and simple.”
Surprised viewers said their jaws “just dropped at erika calling herself courageous.”
