This is what I have trouble getting my head around (and I'm with you-I have never understood why Tom agreed to appear on the show) - Girardi's been a powerful lawyer for decades and I was under the impression Erika's hobby was uncharacteristic of how he usually spent his cash. Why this case, why now, and was this his m.o. for years?
Yeah, the spin on infidelity is much. You've had it with the husband you never spend time with bc he's a big ol' cheater and it's simply the oddest of coincidences that this happened when his butt is in a legal sling? Maybe Tom is interested in saving Erika's bacon and they agreed the divorce would be the best way to do that and maybe he's even ok with her blaming it on infidelity. Or maybe Erika is as selfish as she seems and this is her damage control. Frankly, to me Tom & Erika seemed more like strangers than Shannon & David Beador ever did. I can't imagine them cooking anything up together bc they didn't even seem to know each other.
