Why is Erika Jayne getting death threats?

RHOBH Season 11 has been heavily revolving around Jayne’s life. The season started off with Jayne revealing to her co-stars that she was divorcing her husband Tom Girardi. However, as the season has progressed more dirt has been dug up and now Jayne has been implicated in her husband’s doings. Girardi is being accused of misappropriating money awarded to his clients from the lawsuits he represented them in.

Some fans believe that Jayne has benefited from this money as they also believe Girardi funded her luxurious lifestyle and her entertainment company. Nothing has been defined yet but some viewers have strong feelings about the lawsuit as some of the victims have been “orphans and widows” of a 2018 plane crash.

Jayne has shared some of the death threats that some RHOBH viewers have sent her on Instagram.

“Trying to kill me now? Stop threatening my life,” Jayne recently posted on Instagram.

Following the nasty messages directed at Jayne, Rinna came fired up to stick up for her friend and slammed the trolls.

“Be angry, be scared, be hurt, be devastated, cry, feel all of the grief. Feel all of the feelings,” she said in a now-deleted Instagram post. “But please don’t threaten to kill us or our families. We are here doing the best we can with a real-life situation that is playing out in real-time. We are devastated for the victims, orphans, and widows. Please be patient and be hopeful that justice will prevail.”
