Erika Girardi may be ready to move on amid her ongoing divorce from her estranged husband, Tom Girardi.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is now joking about making an “online dating profile” to help her find new love.
On January 6 Erika shared a sexy photo of herself on Instagram while asking fans if she should use the picture on dating sites. In the steamy snap, Erika donned fishnets and gold heels that left little to the imagination.
“Thinking of making this my online dating profile pic. Thoughts??” she wrote, adding a thinking emoji.
While many may think Erika’s post is all in good fun it turns out she may be serious about using a dating app to find love – or lust.
A source tells Us Weekly that the RHOBH star is “totally serious about making a profile.”
The insider adds, “She’s never been on [a dating app], but she wants to start one. Now is the perfect time because she’s not out meeting guys in person — no one really is. Everyone’s into online dating in quarantine. Of course, all her photos will look hot!”
Erika is currently going through a very public divorce from Tom amid his various ongoing legal and financial issues. She filed for divorce after 21 years of marriage in November and later accused Tom of cheating.
On December 18, 2020, Erika publicly accused Tom of cheating with Judge Tricia A. Bigelow in a now-deleted post on Instagram.
According to an insider, Erika was completely unaware of Tom’s legal and financial issues.
In recent months Tom has been hit with several lawsuits. One lawsuit alleges that Tom and Erika embezzled millions from the 2018 Lion Air plane crash victims’ families.
“She’s still in disbelief that Tom would cheat. She’s also in disbelief with all these lawsuits that are coming that no one was aware of,” the source revealed in December 2020. “The legal issues are unfolding one after another, and she’s learning as everyone’s filing. As the whole world is finding out about it, she’s finding out about it. She’s reading about it in the press before she even sees it [from her lawyers].”
She also reportedly feels “betrayed” by Tom amid the fraud and embezzlement allegations.
“Erika was completely unaware of the very serious allegations that were being made against Tom in court. Tom always handled all of the finances, and that was how they handled things,” another source explained. “She is just reeling from all of this but, make no mistake, Erika is a tough cookie, and she isn’t stupid. She will get through this.”
Despite the various issues plaguing her private life, Erika has no plans to hold anything back while filming season 11 of RHOBH.
“Erika will address her divorce on the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Legally, there is only so much she is allowed to say, but she has been advised on what she can put out there,” one insider previously told Us Weekly. “Viewers will also finally hear the other Housewives’ thoughts on Erika and Tom’s divorce.”
She reportedly “not holding back” while filming season 11.
“She’s going to tell her story, and she’s not going to hold back. In the past, when they filmed, Erika protected Tom at all costs, but this time around is going to be different,” the source confessed, adding that “[Lisa] Rinna has been her biggest support among the cast.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is expected to return for season 11 in mid-2021.
