Erika Girardi Attends The 2021 People’s Choice Awards Red Carpet For The First Time

Erika Girardi, star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, stated last month that “everything is fine” at the moment, despite recent controversy and legal trouble.

The 50-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star made a rare public appearance Tuesday at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, for the 2021 People’s Choice Awards. Her Bravo show has been nominated for a reality show award. Lisa Rinna, her co-star, has been nominated for reality star of the year.

Girardi attended the Kyle X Shahida Boutique Grand Opening Event on Nov. 5 in Palm Desert, California, with her cast mates, and the SUSHISAMBA Las Vegas Tree Bar grand opening on Sept. 21 at The Palazzo Las Vegas.

Erika’s red carpet appearance follows a year of controversy, the majority of which was aired on the show.

After 21 years of marriage, Erika filed for divorce from Tom Girardi, 82, in November 2020, telling PEOPLE at the time, “This is not a step to be taken lightly. Tom has a special place in my heart and I admire and respect him for the years we spent together and the lives we created.”

Tom and his law firm, Girardi Keese, were sued in December for allegedly embezzling funds from a number of families who had lost loved ones in a Boeing plane crash in 2018. Later, he was sued by his business partners, prompting Tom and his firm to file a chapter 7 bankruptcy petition the same month.

As a bankruptcy trustee investigates Tom and his firm, the singer has been accused of conspiring with Tom and allegedly using her “notoriety” to hide assets.

Tom was diagnosed with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease and was placed under conservatorship as a result of this, in addition to the ongoing bankruptcy lawsuit. The appointment of his younger brother Robert as his temporary conservator was made permanent in June after he was named as such in February.

Tom is now receiving 24-hour care at a “skilled nursing facility,” according to court documents filed by Robert in September.

Throughout the 11th season of RHOBH, Erika addressed the divorce and legal drama. She denied knowing anything about Tom’s “alleged theft” during the reunion.

The reality star said she would not have joined the Bravo series if she had known where she would be today during the fourth and final part of the reunion, which aired last month.

“I would not have participated in a reality show. Let’s be clear about something, shall we? “she stated “You can’t hide s—- like this, so I wouldn’t. That’s exactly what I’m implying. This isn’t some grand scheme. Erika isn’t some sort of financial f—-ing genius. This is a tragic chain of events that is completely awful.”

However, after the season ended, she told Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave of Extra special correspondent and RHOBH alum Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave that “everything is good” right now.

“Life is moving in the right direction, and it feels great to be done with the season,” she said. “And just take a much more light-hearted approach.”
