REAL Housewives Of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne was pictured for the first time since the bombshell Hulu doc The Housewife & The Hustler aired about her husband Tom Girardi’s embezzlement scandal and their messy divorce.
The Bravo star, who has left the former couple’s $7million Pasadena mansion and settled into a more modest $1.5million home in Hancock Park, LA, was seen in sweats, giving a nod to her former wealthy lifestyle.

Exclusive photographs obtained by The Sun show the blonde on a Monday outing wearing a pale green t-shirt from the “Billionaire Boys Club” range after downgrading her lifestyle.

Erika was accompanied by her assistant as the pair visited Petco, pumped gas, and headed to a florists in the afternoon.

Her down-to-earth look is a far cry from her usual glamorous appearance.
Back in November, Erika shocked fans when she filed for divorce from former super lawyer, Tom Girardi, after 21 years together.
It was later rumored that Tom had cheated on Erika multiple times and she was ready to leave him, while the lawyer never denied or confirmed the allegations.
Following the divorce filing, he began getting hit with lawsuit after lawsuit for fraud, embezzlement and contract breach.
Erika became involved when it was claimed that they upheld their luxurious lifestyle with the money he had allegedly stolen from his clients.

However, she has denied ever knowing what Tom was up to and how he funded their lifestyle.
Her outing on Monday comes after the bombshell Hulu documentary, The Housewife & The Hustler, was released, with many interviewees questioning how much Erika really knew.
The doc examines Tom’s questionable legal practices while he worked as a hotshot lawyer in Los Angeles, which contributed to Erika’s extremely lavish lifestyle and funded her pop career.
Back in December, he was sued for allegedly embezzling millions from the families of plane crash victims.

He reportedly took settlement proceeds that should have gone to his clients, “including the widows and orphans who lost loved ones in the tragic crash of Lion Air Flight 610.”
A source previously told Us Weekly: “Erika was completely unaware of the very serious allegations that were being made against Tom in court.
“Tom always handled all of the finances and that was how they handled things. Erika feels betrayed by Tom because she completely trusted him.”

Jay said: “We believe we’re going to be able to prove that Erika was incredibly involved in not just the law firm, but also, he was loaning money to her company 10s of millions of dollars to her company. And we think that money came from client funds.
“And we’re going to look into all of that. And that’s all going to be, you know, part of proof that we showed to a jury — that she was knee-deep in this fraud, and she can say, ‘Oh, she didn’t know anything about it.’
“And I think that’s going be hard for her to convince a jury of.”
Erika admitted to her RHOBH co-stars that her divorce from is “so f**king complicated” during a recent episode of the show.

The 49-year-old made the confession as she faced her friends for the first time, saying: “There [are] so many layers to this divorce.
“It’s so f**king complicated. It’s very difficult to explain.”
Speaking of the other RHOBH stars, she added: “You know, I’m sure that they were very shocked and that they’re going to have a lot of questions.”
The episode then cut to Erika’s conversation with her costars, where she told them that she “did not see it ending this way” with her lawyer husband.

The former Broadway star added: “I was going to hold that man’s hand until he died.”
Housewife Dorit Kemsley said on the show it “was a surprise” to learn of their separation, telling friends: “We don’t know enough about what’s happening.”
Meanwhile, her ex Tom, 81, has been diagnozed with dementia and late-onset Alzheimer’s disease, according to recent court documents.
Dr Nathan Lavid, a forensic and clinical psychiatrist, said Tom is medically unfit to attend any court proceedings “for the foreseeable future,” in a capacity declaration obtained by People.
“Dementia impairs his ability to understand the hearing. His emotional distress is directly related to his dementia and exacerbated by his confusion,” Nathan wrote.
He added that there is “moderate impairment” of Tom’s short-term memory, ability to concentrate, recognition of familiar objects and places and logical reasoning.
