Erika Jayne has made quite a name for herself — from Broadway to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills — over the last six years. Her life with husband Tom Girardi has been filled with privilege with a stunning Pasadena estate, lavish vacations and her glam squad following her to every corner of the globe.
But things have taken quite a serious turn over the last six months as the couple has announced their divorce, Girardi has been placed under conservatorship due to his Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis, the famed lawyer was disbarred and the couple has been implicated for the misappropriation of funds from victims’ lawsuits. And oh yeah, there’s infidelity on Girardi’s part. Needless to say, there’s a lot going on and they are selling their beautiful Los Angeles-area mansion.
The $13-million mansion has a historic pedigree, having been designed by Myron Hubbard Hunt in 1928. The home boasts four bedrooms, nine bathrooms and spans over 10,277 square feet. The rooms are decked with intricate woodwork that makes it a very formal affair — and one that doesn’t feel like the Pretty Mess author’s vibe at all, to be honest.
Of course, there is a wine cellar, a gorgeous library and a splash or two of “Erika Jayne” in the house, but we think she’s just as happy in her new home where she downsized to a $1.5 million property with a modest three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It may not have the custom walk-in closet for her jewelry and shoes as the Pasadena home did, but “she’s made it her own space and loves it,” an insider told People.
The couple hasn’t officially announced why they are selling their Pasadena home, but we can guess the divorce and the embezzlement issue probably has something to do with it.
