Fans of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" expressed their shock on social media after reports that Erika Jayne and husband Tom Girardi have called it quits on their 21-year-old marriage.


Fans are always heartbroken when their favorite celebrity couple decides to draw the curtain on their romance, especially when the union looked like it would last forever.

"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Erika Jayne and husband Tom Girardi decided to part ways after 21 years together, leaving their fans in total shock.

The reality star revealed to E! News that the decision did not come easy, but she has great love and respect for Tom and their years together. Although Jayne requested that both parties' privacy should be respected, it did not stop fans from expressing their shock and disappointment.

Fans took to Twitter to reveal their shock over the news of the divorce. One fan wrote: "so sad to hear of any long-term relationships like this ending," a second commented that she did not see the divorce happening.


One heartbroken fan said that she was understandably taking the news very hard. Although fans do not want to see them split, their 21-year-old relationship has not been without criticisms, especially about their 33 years age difference.


Despite the skepticism surrounding them, the couple, who married in 1999, looked like they were going to make it work against all odds.

He reportedly runs a successful legal firm.

The ex-couple reportedly met at Chasen's in West Hollywood, where the 49-year-old Erika was serving cocktails, and Tom, 81, was a frequent patron. Erika and Tom enjoyed some sort of unconventional romance, with Tom not being one to wear rings.


Another interesting aspect of their more than two-decade romance is the absence of a prenup, which many consider weird, especially when divorces are becoming unpredictable

The former couple seemed to have enjoyed an informal relationship after Erika revealed that she saved Tom's contact as "The Boss" on her phone and humorously remarked that Tom probably had just her number.

Erika, who was previously married to Thomas Zizzo, has enjoyed a remarkably successful spell on the reality series "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" as a full-time cast member.


The 49-year-old reportedly became a fan-favorite with her exquisite styleand major support of the LGBTQ+ community. The reality star revealed that her time on the show has seen her gain nearly 200,000 more IG followers.

While Tom might not be famous for taking on TV roles, he reportedly runs a successful legal firm that is said to have earned more than $10 billion in verdicts and settlements. Tom had been married twice before his marriage to Erika.
