Erika Jayne is speaking out after learning the identity of the new owner of her diamond earrings is none other than Lauren Boyette Richards, the wife of attorney Ronald Richards, who has been reporting on her and Thomas Girardi‘s legal issues for years and briefly worked alongside the trustee presiding over Thomas’ bankruptcy.
While appearing on Teddi Mellencamp and Tamra Judge‘s podcast earlier this week, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star admitted she wasn’t surprised to see that Lauren had posted a photo of herself wearing the earrings on Instagram before reacting to Teddi’s “stalker” claims and Tamra’s suggestion that Ronald and Lauren’s behavior is “f-cking disgusting.”
“I would love to say I’m shocked but at this point in my life, I’m just not,” Erika admitted on the December 20 episode of Two T’s in a Pod.
Both Teddi and Tamra were disturbed by the fact that Lauren would pose with the earrings, and Teddi asked Erika, “What kind of stalker gets your earrings, posts them on Instagram, and goes from there?”
“This attorney has been so obsessed with you for so long and now the fact that his wife or himself bought these earrings is f-cking disgusting,” added Tamra.
“I agree, and it’s also frightening because this is someone that leaked my address, that has been ruthlessly doing anything he can to basically push himself into my life and into everything that has fallen apart around this entire situation, and the earrings are a part of it,” Erika noted.
Erika then wondered why Ronald and Lauren would want to be in possession of the earrings if they were “blood diamonds,” signaling to the fact that they were purchased by Thomas with funds meant for his clients.
“They’re so obsessed. It’s a trophy and you can feel it and you can see it,” she explained.
“Be careful. It’s bizarre behavior,” Tamra advised.
“It’s really weird and I’ve raised it many times with many people,” Erika continued, adding that Ronald and Lauren will surely “love the fact that” they were a hot topic on Teddi and Tamra’s show.
“That’s who these people are. I’ve always said, let the courts figure it out,” Erika said. “And the earrings that went up for auction, it’s fine. I get it. But even if you bought them, what’s the point? Reset them and keep going on with your life. If she wanted a pair of diamonds, the world is littered with beautiful diamond earrings, believe me. But this was a personal thing and they are obsessed, one thousand percent obsessed.”
Erika went on to say that when it comes to her legal drama, there are far more important things people could be talking about.
“The CFO, or the accountant, was arrested for stealing $10 million out of Girardi Keese so there’s a lot of other things that are happening,” she stated.
Erika and her castmates are expected to go into production on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 13 in early 2023.
