Months after Erika filed for divorce following over two decades of marriage to Thomas Girardi, the performer is finally addressing the sudden turn of events. She’s sharing details regarding the last conversation they had before she filed and admitting that her split from Thomas has “many layers.”
According to Erika, she knew her castmates would likely be “very shocked” to learn about her split and would have “a lot of questions” for her.
“Let’s discuss the elephant in the room. I did not see it ending this way,” Erika is seen explaining to her castmates. “I was going to hold that man’s hand until he died.”
During another scene, Erika is seen sitting down with Lisa Rinna and revealing what she said to Thomas the night before she filed for divorce.
“I told him I love him and he said, ‘Thank, hun,'” she recalls. “He got served the next morning.”
“Wow,” Lisa replies.
Also on this week’s new episode of RHOBH, fans will be getting their first look at the three-bedroom, three-bathroom rental home Erika moved into after splitting from Thomas in November of last year. As fans may have heard, Erika downgraded from her 10,000-square-foot home in Pasadena to a 2,000-square-foot rental home in Los Angeles worth an estimated $1.5 million.
