REAL Housewives Of Beverly Hills' Erika Jayne joked about how she would be a 'master criminal' if she was not a performer about two years before claims that she "stole millions."
A past video interview with Erika, 50, has resurfaced on the web.
About two years ago, the Real Housewives star revealed the "25 Things You Don't Know About Me" with Us Weekly.
The caption stated: "What would you be if you weren't a performer?"
Erika replied: "A bank robber or something. A master criminal.
"Don't know what. Something that would pay really good though."
The reality star concluded: "I don't know if you can get away with that stuff anymore.
"But it looks glamorous in movies."
Back in July, Erika and her ex-husband Tom Giardi, 82, have been accused of stealing settlement funds, which were intended for the families of victims killed in a 2018 plane crash.
Court papers seen by The Sun showed how Erika's company was allegedly given more than $25million by her ex's legal firm, which has now filed for bankruptcy, and she is being asked to pay it back.
She has repeatedly denied knowing anything about her husband's finances during their marriage and mentioned that the money was not for her.
Erika filed for divorce from Tom back in November 2020.
'NOTHING TO HIDE'
Recently, during the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion, host Andy Cohen, 53, asked the TV star about her estranged husband’s legal scandal.
Andy asked her if her attorneys advised her to quit the Bravo show due to being wrapped up in her legal issue.
She responded: “They did. And I said no because I have nothing to hide.
“And they said, ‘this s**t will be twisted around’ and could be used against you. I’ve thought about it but I’m not a quitter.
“I didn’t want to runaway from everything that’s coming at me. So I stayed.”
Eika then publicly addressed the "alleged" victims for the first time since the court case became news.
When Andy asked what the biggest misconception people have of her is, the TV personality answered: “That I’m cold and have no sympathy.
“But I’m in an almost impossible situation. And anyone who has been wronged, I want them to be made whole.
“I’m talking about the alleged victims of the alleged wrongdoings from Tom and it’s important people hear that from me.”
RHOBH fans thought Erika's statement felt "rehearsed" as she spoke about her legal situation.
A Twitter user said: "I’m not buying this innocent soft-spoken remorseful act from Erika. She’s clearly been coached by her lawyers.
"Erika trying to sell us this damsel in distress 'All my life I had to fight' diatribe, save these rehearsed speeches ma'am cause we're not buying it," another wrote.
