RHOBH fans were unable to watch the special on Monday. They wanted to see if it would reveal any new details about Erika and Thomas Girardi’ scam case.

RHOBH: Erika Loses Attorney In Thomas Bankruptcy Case
On Monday, following the publication of a documentary, Dinsmore & Shohl LLP filed documents to withdraw the involvement of lawyers in the bankruptcy case of Thomas Girardi 7. Erika just lost her lawyers as the damning program and made waves on social media.
Entertainment Online obtained the documents, which reveal that “the relationship of trust and confidence that is essential to a properly functioning attorney-client relationship has broken down and, in good faith assessment of counsel, the relationship is irreparable. Withdrawal is appropriate under such circumstances”.
In November 2020, Erika Jayne announced her separation from her former lawyer. This shocking news came before the ongoing legal troubles and before she forced herself into foreclosure. The once hot-shot lawyer had $80 million but now claims to be bankrupt. The housewife and Hustler gave an insight into the couple’s finances and alleged embezzlement. In December 2020, the opposing law firm filed a lawsuit against the couple on behalf of the families who lost loved ones in the October 2018 crash of Lion Air Flight 610.
Thomas Girardi allegedly misappropriated settlement money intended for the victims’ families. The duo allegedly used the money to fund their lavish lifestyle and repay loans to keep Thomas’ law firm afloat.
