Erika Jayne’s $600,000 RHOBH salary will be ‘much higher’ if she signs on for season 12

After recently lamenting that she was in the poor house, Erika Jayne could be positioned for a major payday if she signs on to do another season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

It was reported this week that Jayne took home a $600K salary for season 11 but sources say that since next season would focus on her current embezzlement scandal, she will score a hefty raise, according to Us Weekly. 

Meanwhile, it seems that producers are literally and figuratively banking on Jayne’s pretty mess of a life for ratings and pushing production on season 12 ahead of schedule to hopefully have cameras rolling as she deals with her scandal.

‘It’s going to be much more next season,’ an insider said, adding that there is ‘no question’ that Erika would use her situation to ‘demand a higher paycheck’ if she continues on the show.

‘The ratings were off the charts because of her story line and what she’s exposed,’ the source revealed. ‘What she’s dealing with [regarding] Tom [Girardi] and the court is not over yet so you can only imagine what next season is going to bring.’

While she hasn’t officially signed on for another season, her payday could be getting close to 7 figures if she negotiates smartly. 

It was reported by The New York Times on Tuesday that the 50-year-old reality star is making $600,000 for season 11. 

'It's going to be much more next season,' an insider said, adding that there is 'no question' that Erika would use her situation to 'demand a higher paycheck' if she continues on the show.

The outlet added that it is typical for Housewives to get a raise each year to return so her base would already be going up before she added the ratings draw of her embezzlement scandal and divorce. 

Production on season 12 is reportedly being pushed ahead due to Erika’s downfall which is ripe for reality TV drama. 

Typically the cast gets a longer break in between shooting seasons but TMZ reported that the gap has been shortened by months allegedly so producers can roll on as much as possible of Jayne’s ongoing legal drama. 

Her estranged husband Tom Girardi, 82, has been accused of embezzling millions of dollars meant for the 2018 Boeing plane crash victims, and as a result, both have had to give up their lavish lifestyles.

Jayne once famously employed $40K-a-month glam quad to keep her looking like a pop star, but that has all gone now that she’s been asked to pay back an alleged $25million loan from her ex Girardi.

As well as saying she has ‘zero dollars’ to her name, Jayne, on a recent episode, branded broke life ‘f***ing bulls***t’ while guzzling champagne on a luxury vacation to a vineyard.

Meanwhile, UsWeekly reported Tuesday that TV network Bravo has been subpoenaed for footage of Jayne amid her legal troubles.

The network is said to have been asked to turn over unaired scenes from the reality show by October 26. 

Jayne’s estranged husband Tom was once worth an estimated $264million, and the pair have since moved out of their luxury Pasadena mansion following the scandal. 

She announced in November last year that she and powerhouse attorney Tom had split after 21 years of marriage.

Tonight, fans are set to see Jayne get grilled by Andy Cohen in a four-part explosive reunion show for RHOBH. 

In it, fans have already heard Jayne talking about Girardi from the teaser, where she appears to say: ‘You know what, I can’t control what Tom Girardi did.’ 

‘We’re going to put you on a skewer – and I’m going to fire up the barbecue,’ Cohen tells Jayne unceremoniously, making it clear that he’s going to ask her tough questions about the alleged scam. 

‘Why didn’t you leave Tom sooner?’ Cohen asks – referencing Girardi’s woes, as he is accused of embezzling millions of dollars that were meant for plane crash victims. 

To that question, it appears Jayne simply fires back with: ‘Where was I going?’ 

While the clip is heavily edited down into a short teaser – it is clear that Cohen gets into Jayne’s financial issues as he tells her ‘I know what you make on this show.’

Cohen also appeared to fact-check her financial claims in the snippet. 

The subject of money appears to get Jayne riled up as she responds, ‘hold on!’ when Cohen brings up her RHOBH salary.

Cohen then says: ‘He’s having multiple affairs, yet as we know, he put $20million and more into your account.’

At that point, Jayne is seen shaking her head as she tries to interject with a denial, saying: ‘No.’ 

This refers to claims by Jayne that Girardi was being unfaithful to her during their 21-year-marriage, which she has hinted is the reason for their split – rather than the embezzlement drama. 

Things really get tense when Cohen asks the group: ‘Who believes that Erika did not know anything about what Tom was doing?’

An incensed Jayne then rages: ‘Can someone please back me the f*** up on what I am saying?’ 

However, Cohen goes further: ‘You were manipulating the narrative by saying the cognitive decline started three years ago…,’ but she cuts him off stating: ‘That’s not true… Again, here you are looking at me rolling your eyes.’ 

Cohen then pointedly says: ‘It lands differently when there are air crash victims.’ 

In August this year, Girardi was federally disbarred as an attorney, according to documents filed under the Central District of California. 

Girardi — who has been placed under a conservatorship on account of a Dementia diagnosis — reportedly ‘did not contest the decision.’

While Jayne has claimed to have no involvement in the embezzlement scandal and ‘kept away from the books’ she has been implicated over an alleged $25million she was paid by Girardi’s law firm.
