Erika Girardi on Her Sex Life and Defending Her 20-Year Marriage with Tom
The RHOBH cast member, aka Erika Jayne, shed more light on her marriage to the lawyer.
Erika Girardi's home life with Tom Girardi is always of interest to viewers and her pals, new and old, on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Luckily for us, Erika shed more light on her life with her hubby when she met up with Garcelle Beauvais in the April 22 episode of RHOBH.
"He's good. He is 80, which is unbelievable to think he's still up every day running his firm," Erika told Garcelle, before revealing info about their sex life after the RHOBH newbie asked about it.
"It's OK. People always ask that. They're always [like] what's going on? Is it 20-year-old f--king all day long? No," she said, adding she wouldn't really want that anyway. "Not really. We got bills to pay."
From there, she opened up about how Tom embraced her now-adult son from her first marriage when they married all those years ago. "That's the one thing I loved most about Tom when my son was younger was that he welcomed him with open arms," Erika recalled with tears in her eyes. "I'm very thankful. That's my guy."

In interview during the episode, the woman also known Erika Jayne was a bit sassier about the line of questioning related to her marriage to Mr. Girardi. "I've dealt with this forever: the younger woman that married the wealthier, older man," she said. "I mean, I'm tired of having to justify my 20-year marriage. Go get a 20-year marriage, then come f--king talk to me."
During her interview, she also added, "Yeah I married a guy that's 33 years older than me and yeah he's got a lot of money, but you know what? He's a f--king good man. And that is the most important thing."
Later in the episode, fans went home with Erika and Tom, as she was sharing with him the paperwork for her role as Roxie Hart in Broadway's Chicago (her run ended early due to COVID-19). Erika noted that she values his emotional support tremendously and above all else.
"You know obviously your success and your tours, all those little steps... this is the big deal, baby," he told her, beaming with pride for his wife's latest accomplishment. "I'm really proud of you... It's too cool."
