REAL Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne was slammed as a “filthy thief” by fans who say she “knew about husband Tom Girardi’s stealing” from clients.
Bravo fans took to Twitter to share their reactions to the Hulu special The Housewife and the Hustler, which premiered on Monday.
The documentary reveals the inner workings of the multimillionaire's legal career and his wife's over-the-top spending habits.
A number of RHOBH fans accused Erika, 49, about knowing what Tom, 82, was up to before he allegedly embezzled from victims that he pledged to protect as he represented them against corporate giants in court.
One person wrote: “I am disgusted #erikajayne Knows that girl aint dumb you know she picked up some tricks from Tom. Shes a filthy thief but shes not dumb She needs to pay.”
Another added: “Watching the horrific story of how Erika Jayne and husband stole from these poor burn victims. Truely disgusting and Erika had to know I am so appalled I can’t believe @BravoTV and #RHOBH employee these animals! Shame on you too karma is a b***h.”
While tagging Erika, a third chimed in: “You and your husband are going to hell.”
The criticism continued as another viewer wrote: “Wow guys just wow there’s no way Erika Jayne didn’t know.”
Alongside a gif of Schitt’s Creek character Stevie Budd saying “you're a monster,” a following person commented: “For the record Erika Jayne/Girardi makes me sick.”
The new doc examines Tom’s questionable legal practices while he worked as a hotshot lawyer in Los Angeles, which helped make Erika's extremely lavish lifestyle possible.
The lawyer’s friend, LA attorney and former president of the Bar Association Brian Kabateck, said that the way multimillionaire was depicted on the RHOBH was bad for his career and showed that the couple lived beyond their means.
Brian said in the documentary: “Probably most appalling was talk that they had two airplanes. And that’s crossing the line in what we do. We represent people who are victimized by big corporations and rich people.
“And here you are putting it out that you’re super wealthy. And that you’re basically the man. We sue the man! You don’t want to be the man and he’s showing people he’s the man."
Tom’s victims also appear in the doc as they open up about their experience with the lawyer and explain how he allegedly scammed them.
Back in November, Erika shocked the world when she filed for divorce from Tom after 21 years together.
It was later claimed that Tom had cheated on Erika multiple times and she was over it, while the lawyer never denied or confirmed the allegations.
Following the divorce filing, Tom began getting hit with lawsuit after lawsuit for fraud, embezzlement, and contract breach.
Erika was roped in as it was claimed that they upheld their luxurious lifestyle with the money he had allegedly stolen from his clients.

However, Erika has denied ever knowing what Tom was up to and how he funded their lifestyle.
A source 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.”
