Details on The Housewife and the Hustler
Erika Jayne and Hollywood attorney Tom Girardi will be part of a new documentary, which will stream on Hulu. On Wednesday, June 2, People shared the details of the special as well as a teaser. In the film titled The Housewife and the Hustler, various legal experts will talk about the scandals surrounding the former married couple. Their legal issues came to light after Erika filed for divorce in November 2020.
“Tom Girardi was L.A. law — so powerful,” one legal expert says in the teaser. Meanwhile, another talks about the couple’s lavish lifestyle. Apparently, they had no concept of money. “They were just blowing left and right, but then…” However, the couple will not make an appearance in this film since they’re in the midst of their legal battle and divorce.
The documentary will premiere on Hulu on Monday, June 14. It will have exclusive court records, voicemail records, and never-before-heard deposition tape featuring Tom, per ABC News. This comes as Erika will address her and Tom’s divorce on RHOBH Season 11, which premiered last month. She may also address some of the legal issues and alleged claims against her.
