Edelson added that Erika’s revelations in Season 11 on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was helpful in their cases against her as well as Tom.
“This season of Real Housewives, as painful as it has been to watch — just because I’m watching through the eyes of the victims — it’s given us a lot of evidence,” the attorney stated in the podcast. “On TV, you can say whatever you want, under oath, you got to tell the truth.”
