A dramatic standoff. After Lisa Rinna claimed that a “screaming” match between Erika Jayne and producers for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was cut from the Wednesday, August 4, episode, a source exclusively confirmed to Us Weekly that a fight happened.
According to the insider, the effort began when the Fair Mess author, 50, told Crystal Kung Minkoff that her estranged husband, Tom Girardi, had been calling her repeatedly. The primary time Erika talked about the phone calls, though, she wasn’t on camera.
“It was a private conversation, but the ladies have been serene mic’d up,” the source explained. “So, when the ladies purchased back to the car, the producers told Erika they heard her on audio and that she had to repeat what she unbiased said.”
“I had to ask my attorney to call his attorney to say, ‘Please discontinue calling Erika,’” she said in the episode. “You realize, it’s unbiased flawed. ‘I care for you, I miss you, come home, are you obvious?’ I’m treasure, ‘Discontinuance. You gotta discontinue, you have to discontinue, honey. You want back.’ And I can’t give it.”
The problem arose about 20 minutes later, when Garcelle, 54, asked Erika about her claims another time.
“When the ladies returned from their looking spree, Garcelle brought it up again, so Erika lost it,” the source told Us. “[She asked,] ‘Why are we talking about this three varied times? Why are you pressuring me to have this conversation about Tom calling me?’ She called producers out on camera, saying they build Garcelle up to this.”
Primary of the present season has dealt with the aftermath of Erika’s November 2020 split from Tom and the next wave of legal drama that adopted. A source told Us last month that the “Hurry Along” songstress has been watching to gawk how issues have been edited.
“She’s watching the episodes back and reliving the moments and unbiased getting emotional,” the insider explained. “It’s unbiased been an emotional curler coaster for obvious. Each day brings one thing contemporary.”
She doesn’t know, nonetheless, if Tom and his lawyers are also watching. “She hasn’t heard about how Tom feels about the divorce playing out on the Housewives,” the source said. “The communication is by their lawyers.”
