An attorney hired to investigate The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne has responded to a snarky tweet she posted.

Things got ugly after the two exchanged heated remarks about her current legal issues and a nasty feud ignited online between the housewife and Ronald Richards.

What viewers of RHOBH are seeing play out this season with Erika Jayne and her divorce is a far cry from what fans are seeing on social media.

While she is spending the episodes dabbing her running mascara and getting sympathetic hugs from the other wives, Twitter users are seeing her get down and dirty with attorney Richards.

The back and forth between the lawyer and housewife is ongoing and presents two very different versions of a story that keeps getting stranger and seemingly more tragic by the day.

Erika Jayne’s Twitter use contrasts with what viewers see this season on RHOBH

The big question among fans and viewers is whether or not Erika knew about all the shady things her estranged husband Tom Girardi is currently accused of. Her RHOBH persona presents a victimhood that has the Bravo-verse split down the middle.

Some fans and castmates are staunchly defending her innocence, while others are calling for her dismissal and possible arrest. It’s hard to discern the truth when her onscreen attitude is so different from how she presents herself online.

Instead of riding this storm out quietly, though, out of the public eye, Erika Jayne has not gone long without posting online about the case, the charges or about Tom himself. This particular Twitter storm started with a tweet from July 17 in which Erika presented her beef with the case.

“No merit No investigation No proof Just more harassment …” she wrote.

Attorney Ronald Richards is known for his opinions and ideas about celebrity cases

The investigating attorney, Ronald Richards, has a strong Twitter presence and regularly posts his opinion about this and many other high-profile cases. He responded to Erika’s tweet with a string of posts that include concise rebuttals and official documents. He started with a tweet that refuted her accusations, point for point.

This exchange was only the tip of the iceberg, as Richards quote-tweeted Erika’s original post with tweets attaching documents to back up his claims.

The exchange then stretched into the next day, as Erika name-called, retweeted insults, and generally criticized Richards’ character.

The back and forth continued, with Erika later calling for Richards to remove a tweet that depicted her burglarizing her own house.

Richards responded to Erika’s tweet, in kind, with a rebuttal of his own.

Richards, in addition to investigating Erika, also has opinions on plenty other celebrity situations. Recently he has also commented on the Denise Richards vs. Rinna saga, some drama with Lisa Vanderpump’s house, Taylor Armstrong’s late husband, and the case involving Stormy Daniels’ former attorney Michael Avenatti.

To get a sense of the bigger picture of the feud between Erika and Ronald Richards, it’s well worth visiting their respective Twitter feeds, but make sure to bring your popcorn and stay awhile. It gets pretty juicy.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.

I am not buying into her drama, Tom taught her everything she knows, and lets not forget that she’s on paper as being a secretary for his law firm!Guilty as the day is long.This woman is made of ice,and has a frozen heart. Not once has she apologized for her husband’s behavior, why because she is a damn liar and not even a good one.She knew everything and now she’s crying, oh please people wake up.The feds have the goods on her,she needs to shut up and humble her ice QUEEN persona.Not buying her poor acting. Also to Bravo and Andy Cohen, she needs to be fired,fade out,roll credits,the end!!!!!!!!!

Forget about what she knew and when for a moment. What she knows right now, and for the last 6 months, is her hubby is a snake and a thief and mentally unwell. So he was too incompetent to loa/ngive her the money he stole from sick and dying clients.

The right thing to do here is just go cut a check and repay those funds now. She can get dn offset in the divorce, but that money needs to be paid directly to the families, immediately!

Nothing short of this is acceptable.
