Erika Jayne’s Second Memoir Will Likely Be Very Different From Her First
Erika Jayne has been a staple on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” since joining as a full-time cast member in season 6. In her first memoir, she talked about her journey to becoming a star, focusing on her fame outside of reality television.
“In ‘Pretty Mess,’ Erika spills on every aspect of her life: from her rise to fame as a daring and fiery pop/dance performer and singer; to her decision to accept a role on reality television; to the ups and downs of family life (including her marriage to famed lawyer Tom Girardi, thirty-three years her senior). There’s much more to Erika Jayne than fans see on ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.’ ‘Pretty Mess’ is her opportunity to dig deep and tell her many-layered, unique, and inspiring life story,” reads a description from the publisher.
On the inside pages of “Pretty Mess,” Erika Jayne revealed that she lost her virginity at age 14, defended her age difference with now-ex Tom Girardi, and talked about how former RHOBH star Yolanda Hadid helped her land a role on the hit Bravo show, according to E! News.
In the time since, however, Erika Jayne has been through quite a bit, stemming from her past relationship. Although she hasn’t been formally charged, Erika Jayne’s name has been linked to her ex’s embezzlement case.
For example, she’s been forced to turn over diamond earrings because it was determined that they were purchased with money that should have been paid to clients of the now defunct Girardi & Keese law firm. There have also been ongoing questions about whether or not Erika Jayne had any knowledge of her ex’s alleged wrongdoings, which she has vehemently denied — but this could be fodder for an upcoming book.
