9. How They Met
Erika has briefly shared the story of how she met Tom on RHOBH and basically the two met while she was working as a cocktail waitress at a Los Angeles restaurant. Tom was a regular customer at the restaurant she worked at and took an interest in her. According to her, he pursued her for a while until she eventually caved and went on a date with him. The two got married in 1999 and have been together ever since!
8. No Prenuptial Agreement
It’s not uncommon for a marriage in Beverly Hills to include a prenup, especially when one of the individuals is extremely wealthy. In this case, that person is Tom Girardi, who currently boasts an $11 million dollar fortune and is 32 years her senior. Surprisingly, Erika revealed she did not sign a prenup when she married Tom. When asked about it she replied: “No and we’ll be together 18 years this November. Married 17 in January, so no, I don’t have a prenup. We have a great relationship and it’s lasted.”
