Bravo Subpoenaed for Unaired ‘RHOBH’ Footage of Erika Jayne Amid Legal Drama

In response to the subpoena, the ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star’s attorney, Evan C. Borges, said in a statement, ‘The subpoena is another desperation move and pile-on directed at Erika.’

AceShowbiz -Bravo has been dragged to Erika Jayne‘s ongoing legal battles. The company has been subpoenaed for more details about “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” by attorney Jay Edelson, who previously worked with Erika’s estranged husband Tom Girardi.

“We are very confident that Bravo has information that will be helpful in our efforts to recover client money stolen by Tom Girard,” Jay told Page Six in a statement. “This includes unaired footage of Erika and Tom.”

The attorney also wants Bravo to provide a”documentary evidence, including contracts Erika entered into to be on the Real Housewives and email and text correspondence with the Bravo team” to help investigating Tom’s alleged embezzlement of $2 million from the Lion Air Flight 610 victims’ families. “We are hopeful that Bravo chooses a path of cooperation instead of using this tragedy to increase ratings and make a fortune for itself.”

In a separate statement to Fox News, Jay shared, “The victims have had to endure watching the ‘Real Housewives’ cast do things like eat caviar pie and drink specially-made vodka served by white-gloved staff as they pay lip service to the lives Tom has ruined.”

“The victims have watched Erika cry crocodile tears as she is ‘forced’ to move into a $10,000-a-month apartment while she and her glam squad parade around in a lifestyle few of us will ever know,” Jay, who sued Tom and Erika in December as he accused the then-couple of embezzling money which was meant for Lion Air Flight 610 victims, went on to note. “We are hoping that Bravo changes course and decides to stop protecting Erika and its own bottom line and not make a bad decision to impair our investigation and help us recover much-needed money for the victims.”

In response to the subpoena, Erika’s attorney, Evan C. Borges, said in a statement to Page Six, “The subpoena is another desperation move and pile-on directed at Erika. There is no hidden treasure, which we have supported by providing counsel for the bankruptcy trustee with all relevant bank account and financial information in Erika’s possession.”

“There’s only a small amount of additional information that I need to provide to the trustee, which along with everything else we’ve provided, shows that Erika’s divorce filing was for legitimate reasons and she has been trying to make it on her own. “I realize it is not as sensational but it is time for everyone to direct their focus and questions to Tom Girardi and the Girardi Keese law firm,” he added. Insisting Erika’s innocence, he said, “Erika is an entertainer. She was never a lawyer at GK and she had no role in the firm’s financial management or dealings with its clients.”
