Erika Jayne is opening up about why she chose to divorce her husband, Tom Girardi, after 21 years of marriage.
Picking up where thing’s left off last week, Wednesday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills began with the cast greeting Erika at Sutton Stracke‘s Parisian-themed party. As the group sat down at the table and enjoyed a meal together, Erika decided to address “the elephant in the room” regarding her sudden divorce filing.
“My life drastically changed this week. I let go of my Lamborghini, I let go of my 16,000-square-foot home, I let go of my marriage – I let go of everything. I literally made a decision that I had to,” the 49-year-old shared with the RHOBH ladies.
Erika then explained what caused her to ultimately call it quits.
“I left because he pushed me further and further out,” she said during a confessional. “The conversations that I used to have were now reduced down to a sentence or two. I just kept walking around that house and knowing that this marriage was headed down a really shitty path, I had to make a choice to do what was right for me. I couldn’t live that way anymore.”
