Real Housewives of Beverly HillsErika Jayne is facing a rough season on the Bravo show and in real life. Her husband, Tom Girardi, is accused of embezzling funds meant for clients in the currently ongoing class-action lawsuit and Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. Jayne filed for divorce from Girardi in November, but she has still been implicated in his alleged crimes. To add some salt to the wound, her former co-star, Lisa Vanderpump, is seemingly weighing in on the speculation that the current Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars are keeping quiet about Erika Jayne's potential role in all the legal drama.

On Twitter, where Lisa Vanderpump has been known to get into a feud or two, the ex-Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star made an interesting comment on a fan’s post. The user pointed out the supposed double standard of the current castmates vilifying Vanderpump in the press over an adopted dog issue, while now being silent on Erika Jayne allegedly “stealing/withholding funds from victims” and “spending it on glamour.” See Vanderpump’s response below:

It appears that Lisa Vanderpump is agreeing with the assumption that some of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast are holding back on Erika Jayne's legal situation. In the wake of the news, it is true that they haven't spoken against her, as of this writing. Dorit Kemsley, at one point, said on Twitter that people should give Erika Jayne “a break” and that they were “bullying.” Kyle Richards had nothing but empathy for Erika Jayne’s life “crumbling before her eyes.”

But then again, Erika Jayne has a good rapport with Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley and Lisa Rinna on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. (Though, the teasers for the current season indicate the same isn’t quite so true with Sutton Stracke.) They all are supposedly really good friends even outside the show.

As for Lisa Vanderpump, she exited the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in 2019 on bad terms with all the ladies, even her once-BFF, Kyle Richards. The bad blood between them has even been reignited in a feud over new noses and dining-and-dashing allegations. Vanderpump has even, apparently, taken to drawing mustaches on cast photos she's asked to photograph.

Erika Jayne still has a lot more on her plate at the moment than a throwaway comment from Lisa Vanderpump. In the midst of speculation that she is selling her clothes and jewelry to avoid the government seizing it as collateral for her husband’s supposed unpaid debts, her lawyers in the bankruptcy case dropped her and then proceeded to reverse the decision within the span of a week. Moreover, Jayne was focused on heavily in the recently aired ABC News special about the legal troubles.

Nevertheless, Lisa Vanderpump has been embroiled in several legal dramas of her own. So one has to wonder if it's wise for her to comment on Erika Jayne's.
