Erika Jayne Shows Off Messy Blonde Locks On Her Way To The Hair Salon… After Dumping $40ka Months Glamor Squad Amid Blackout Scandal And Bankruptcy Troubles
She confessed to spending a whopping $40,000 a month to maintain her appearance with a fully paid “glamour crew.”
But these days, Erika Jayne seems to be pinching the pennies while going for a more natural look amid her estranged husband’s embezzlement scandal and bankruptcy woes.
The 50-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was seen on Sunday dressed in sweat with her long blonde hair that looked messy as she was reportedly on her way to a hair appointment.
Erika showed off her impressive physique in gym clothes as she walked to her vehicle near her home in LA.

Her ex – Thomas Girardi, 82, – now lives in a retirement home, which was first revealed by DailyMail.com.
The former attorney and co-founder of Girardi & Keese, a downtown Los Angeles law firm, is currently facing claims of alleged misappropriation of settlement funds intended to help the families of plane crash victims.
They both moved out of their $13 million Pasadena mansion after the scandal.

Meanwhile, Erika’s attorney Evan Borges recently lashed out at former Real Housewives Of New York City star Bethenny Frankel.
Bethenny claimed on her Just B With Bethenny Frankel podcast this week that she met Erika’s estranged husband Tom Girardi, 82, years ago at a lawyers’ conference, where they talked about his then-wife’s extravagant spending.
After the meeting, the entrepreneur’s late ex, Dennis Shields, claimed that Girardi owed him half a million dollars, and he claimed that Girardi was also in debt to others.

Shields is said to have said Girardi was “using people’s money to support her lifestyle.” He uses the company’s money to support her lifestyle.”
But Erika’s attorney Borges denied Bethenny’s claims.
“Erika is not aware of the alleged loans or the conversations that Ms. Frankel refers to, which even Ms Frankel says did not involve Erika,” he told Page Six.
However, a source argued against the publication that the RHONY star painted Girardi as a manipulator, rather than suggesting that Erika was living too extravagantly.

Earlier this week, Erika was spotted in another casual ensemble while visiting a TJMaxx in Pasadena.
The photos sparked a barrage of critical tweets from social media users who read her for shopping at a discount store.
‘Shopping at TJMAXX…. with your assistant?…. Optics EJ….you are smarter than this…. DO NOT win this!’ wrote one fan in a tweet Erika shared.
Defending herself, she claimed she had “shopped there for years” before her recent financial troubles, adding that she stopped at Petco and Target that day.

“Stop analyzing my life,” she decided.
Erika’s recent public looks couldn’t be further from her glamorous gown from last week’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion.
