Erika Jayne shocked the Bravo universe in election day when she announced that her marriage to Tom Girardi would be ending after 21 years. Now that the announcement has been made rumors are starting to swirl.
Without a doubt, the multi-decade age difference played a huge part in the couple’s decision to split. While Tom is an established lawyer in his 80’s, Erika is just getting started,
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is one of the network’s most popular Bravolebrities. In addition to a music career, Erika had just landed a huge role on Broadway before the strip was shut down due to coronavirus.
Although Tom has had a successful law career, he has been hit with multiple million-dollar lawsuits. Now that Erika can hold her own — she doesn’t need Tom’s trouble affecting her bank account.
Since the two didn’t have a prenup due to Girardi being one of the best at what he does — they will definitely be duking it out in court.
Jayne has been catching flak for years for not showing much of her private life on TV which has made fans wonder what she is hiding.
There have been rumors that the couple haven’t exactly acted like a couple in years. In Touch weekly reports that it has seemed more like a close friendship which it wasn’t exactly a surprise to some people when the split was announced.

Both of the reality stars have been rumored to have romances outside of their marriage. This was originally sparked when Erika wrote in her book that Tom doesn’t wear his wedding ring.
‘Tom said, ‘Listen, I’ll buy you anything you want. I don’t care what it is. You name it. But I’m not wearing a wedding band. I never have, I never will. I don’t like it. It’s uncomfortable. Please don’t ask me to. A wedding band does not have magical powers. It is not going to stop anyone from doing something.’
