Erika Jayne, the disgraced RHOBH star, is ‘100% returning to the program next season,’ despite admitting that her lawyers advised her to leave.
Despite confessing that her lawyers persuaded her to leave the show, ERIKA Jayne is “100% returning to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” The Sun can exclusively reveal.
After part one of the blockbuster reunion this week mainly focused on her continuing legal problems, the scandalous celebrity, 50, has officially signed on for Season 12 of the Bravo reality series, according to a source.
“Erika is on board for the new season, and production will begin in the coming days,” the source stated.
“It was a foregone conclusion. She’s the most bankable star right now, and producers don’t want to miss a single second of this scandal, which is still unfolding.” ” Despite her legal difficulties, Erika still has followers, and even those who despise her are watching to see how it all plays out.” Despite the fact that production generally doesn’t begin for months after a season ends, Bravo is picking up immediately where they left off so they don’t miss a beat, according to the insider.
Erika doesn’t want the show to solely focus on her turmoil, but she also “doesn’t want to run away from it”- and hopes that some of the girls will be more supportive of her in Season 12.
“She hopes everything will be resolved, and people will finally start believing her account that she is innocent in all of this,” the source said.
Tom, 82, is accused of fraudulently gifting Erika more than $20 million from his law practice, according to court filings, though she maintains it was for her and claims she was unaware of her husband’s alleged crime.
After the issue emerged in December, Andy Cohen asked Erika if her lawyers recommended her to leave RHOBH, to which she replied, “They did.” “I said no since I have nothing to conceal,” I explained. Erika’s representative has been contacted for comment by The Sun.
Erika recently blasted critics who demanded for her to be dismissed from Bravo, saying, “Why should I be fired?” What gives you the impression that I’ve done something? “Give me a chance to defend myself, why aren’t we allowing the judicial process to run its course?” I’m up for the challenge; keep an eye on me.” After losing her estranged husband’s money, she acknowledged to Andy that Real Housewives is now her primary source of income.
According to The New York Times, Erika earned an amazing $600,000 for Season 11 and could be in line for a pay raise this year after boasting that she is the main magnet for viewers.
“Next season will be substantially more,” a source told Us Weekly, adding that “no… Brinkwire Brief News.”
