A clip of RHOBH star Erika Jayne speaking at a 2018 Tedx conference in Pasadena showed her boasting about her expensive alter ego.
The title of her speech was "My Unapologetic Alter Ego: Living Life as an Exaggerated Figment of People's Imaginations."
According to Radar, she fooled Americans into believing she was her alter ego "Erika Jayne," and not Erika Girardi, which is her government name.
"I was cast in a reality TV show. Overnight, I took "Erika Jayne" from nightclubs into people's living rooms, and they ate it up. Because TV land is really into like sparkly over-the-top characters and I was nailing it."
She continued, "But what happened that I did not expect, is people thought this Erika Jayne character was totally and completely me. This art project that I created in order to get back to what I loved the most – performing -- was all I was ever allowed to be. It's the greatest bamboozlement I've ever accomplished because Erika Jayne merely erased Erika Girardi."
Erika Jayne and her estranged husband Tom Girardi have been accused of stealing millions from his clients.
