We could have guessed that the divorce between “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Erika Jayne and her husband Tom Girardi was shocking enough to garner its own TV documentary. And now, it has, with Hulu announcing it will stream “The Housewife and the Hustler” starting June 14, 2021 (via E! Online).
For those who missed it, Jayne announced she was divorcing Girardi after 21 years together in November of last year (via Us Weekly). Their split came as a shock to fans, as the reality star previously gushed about Girardi, telling People in 2018, “What was really important to me was my relationship. Tom wasn’t going to change. He was a grown man. It really was two people coming together who really enjoy each other’s company. Tom is so bright. He understands the trick to life. I love getting his advice.”
That the marriage was ending was far from the most shocking part of the story, with news emerging that Girardi, a lawyer, was being sued for allegedly embezzling funds intended for family members of victims of a plane crash. Then came the news that Girardi, age 81, had been diagnosed with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
So, what aspects of this real-life drama will “The Housewife and the Hustler” cover?
