“It was the darkest time of my life,” he said, “but I signed a contract, and I had a promise and I had to show up for it, and I had nothing to hide so I wasn’t going to run, so when everyone was ‘You don’t show up, you don’t show up,’ I said, ‘yes, I do.’

He added, “When something like this happens to you, you really find out who you are, but more importantly, you find out who your friends are.”

Michael asked if the lawsuits had changed his view of what was important (after all Glitz and Glam had been involved). He replied, “It was fun, and then, you know … life really, yes, it changed that I’m at my core. I think that’s the way I look at my people, the way I look at the world.” I have a lot of sympathy and understanding for those who are really fighting for themselves. “

“There’s some light at the end of the tunnel,” Erica said of her current battle. “These things will be fixed but, again, it takes time … Today, unlike a year ago, I’m in a much better place.”

Regarding her divorce from Tom, Erica explained: “She calls, you know, and Tom lives in Memory Care. She has dementia, Alzheimer’s, which was something I got up early and said, ‘Hey, we have some changes here,’ but everyone blew me away, and He It blew me away, and I can only do so much. “

He added, “So here we are. He calls, and I take his call, and it’s usually like five or ten seconds and sometimes he thinks I’m someone else… it’s hard, I think because embezzlement and this There’s so much about all the bad things that people forget that I’ve been married to this guy for 20 years, so it’s hard to cut that jack like a jar of emotion … there’s still that human element there. It was really sad for everyone. “

The star is dating again now, but Erica will not use the dating app because she is afraid of strangers. “I need to know someone who knows someone,” he explained.

It’s just two people coming, or two or three… holding a gun to him. Another is saying, ‘Kill him, kill him, kill him. Where are our things? Where is our thing, ‘and you know, it’s hard. He’s in therapy, he’s doing everything he can to get her out. “

Erica doesn’t agree either Sutton streakIts a sensitive comment after the attack on Dorit’s house. “I know we’re on a television show and in the guise of entertainment but here’s the reality: Dorit could lose her life, and so can those kids, so don’t tell me, ‘Oh well I’m just stuck in it’ … [Sutton]Of 50, I 50. We are not children, we know what was coming out of our mouths.
