The new Housewife and the hustler Documentary gives alleged victims of Thomas Girardi, and a former customer also reveals what Thomas had to say about his wife Erika Jayne.
It’s safe to say that today is probably not a good day for them Real housewives from Beverly Hills Star as the highly anticipated documentary about her and Thomas’ legal mess premiered today. In the special, several of Thomas’ alleged victims share their side of the story, while others question what the reality star knows.
Josie Hernandez, who sought help from Thomas after suffering “incontinence problems” after multiple implant surgeries, shared a voicemail the former attorney left her after failing to pay the $ 135,000 she received in her settlement would have. Josie calls Thomas “incredibly cruel” for leaving the message even though he knows he already had her money.
“I don’t want you to be mad at me. I work like a dog trying to resolve this issue. … I’m in your corner, ”he said loudly to Us weekly in voicemail. “I’m a good guy, by the way.”
Josie confirmed that Thomas received her settlement money in May 2020 after filing a complaint with the California Bar. When Thomas left the message in August 2020, she knew he was lying. To date, Josie hasn’t received a cent of the $ 135,000 settlement.
Also in the document, Ramadan bias discusses his business with Thomas, and remembers sending weekly emails to the former attorney asking about his family’s settlement. Bias and his three siblings lost their mother in the Lion Air Flight 610 crash in 2018.
“We are the victims here. Not him, not Tom, not his wife, ”he said on behalf of his family in the Doc. “We just want to know: ‘Can we get our money and when do we get it?’ … We don’t even know.”
Meanwhile, Joe Ruigomez – who was seriously injured in the PG&E gas explosion in 2010 and has stated that Thomas has shown “snake behavior” – details what Thomas had to say about Erika.
“As soon as I got to know Tom a bit, he took me out to dinner,” said Joe in the document, before realizing that Thomas talked a lot about his reality star wife. “[He told me], ‘She’s the cutest. Do you like this tie I’m wearing, Joe? She picked it out. Yes, she’s really good at style. “And: ‘Oh, check out this music video that I made for her!” “
Although the play focuses heavily on Thomas’ alleged misdeeds, several professionals who have closely followed the case also question what Erika really knows. Law360 reporter Brandon Lowrey wonders why Erika is listed as a “secretary” at Thomas ‘financial company and asks whether“ she has benefited from it ”.
“Tom and Erika, they are stuck together in this bankruptcy process,” said Brandon in the document. “Much of that debt that you owe in bankruptcy proceedings may owe together. It’s going to be hard for her to say that she didn’t know something was going on. “
The documentary also features Thomas’ September 23, 2020 filing tape in which he revealed he is broke after allegedly having $ 80 million in cash.
“At some point I had about $ 80 million or $ 50 million in cash. That’s all gone, “he told the court in the testimony. “I have no money.”
