Erika Jayne Takes Messy Stance On Bullying Drama With Garcelle Beauvais' Son

Since May, reality TV fans have tuned in to the 12th season of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," and like previous seasons, the ladies have been embroiled in drama ranging from various dinner party blowups to jaw-dropping revelations. Unfortunately this time around, the drama between the women has made its way off-screen and into the lives of Garcelle Beauvais' children. On August 23, the beloved reality TV star took to social media to reveal that her son Jax has been subjected to hateful and racist comments from online trolls. "I'm usually a very strong woman. I've been raised to be strong, my life has taught me to be strong, but when it comes to my kids," she wrote via Twitter. "It hurts. It's not OK; I've been in tears all night. It's just a TV show people scream at your TV... but leave our kids alone."

After Beauvais' impassioned statement, some of her fellow housewives came to her defense with their own social media posts or comments. In a statement to her Instagram Story, Lisa Rinna described the hateful messages as "disgusting and unacceptable." Crystal Kung-Minkoff echoed similar sentiments in the comment section of Beauvais' initial statement, writing "Leave them alone" in all caps.

Even Diana Jenkins and Erika Jayne, who have both been at odds with Beauvais throughout the ongoing season, showed support by sharing Bravo's statement condemning the online attacks. However, some fans have alleged that the latter's support may not be what it seems.

Erika Jayne breaks silence on Jax controversy

Garcelle Beauvais and Erika Jayne have endured numerous ups and downs throughout their time together on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," with the latest blow-up taking place in an August episode. Recently, though it seemed as if the two had buried the hatchet after Jayne supported Beauvais' son Jax against online trolls.

However, after Jayne shared Bravo's Instagram post condemning the aforementioned online attacks, fans accused the star of being disingenuous given her previous history (remember when Jayne yelled at Jax during Beauvais' 50th birthday party?), as well as her response to a messy comment. "I didn't see Bravo making every post about leaving kids alone when the woke mob was coming after your son for being Law Enforcement in 2020," one fan wrote. In response, the "Pretty Mess" singer said, "exactly." Wow.

After being called out by fans and the social media fan page Queens of Bravo, Jayne released a statement regarding her relationship with Jax and Beauvais. "When I apologized to Garcelle for yelling at Jax, I also told her I would apologize to him in person," she wrote on August 26, per E! News. "But that did not make the edit. All the women saw me say this." In a follow-up Instagram Story, Jayne said her offer "to apologize to him in person" is still on the table, while also denying she hired online bots to attack Jax.
