Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne liked a tweet that compared her to the husband of alleged fraudster/Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Jen Shah.

The wannabe pop star enjoyed a message on Twitter that read, "I don’t see Ronald Richards or any of you haters harass Coach Shah even tho he’s literally in the same situation as Erika #RHOBH #RHOSLC."

Ronald Richards is the lawyer investigating Jayne as part of her estranged husband Thomas Girardi's bankruptcy. The RHOBH star clearly believes she is in the same situation as Jen's husband, Sharrieff Shah.

As Radar previously reported, earlier this year, Shah and her assistant were arrested as part of an alleged massive telemarketing scam. Prosecutors accuse her of helping find victims for companies to scam.

The government says she preyed on elderly people and is responsible for helping scam hundreds of people. She is facing decades behind bars if convicted.

Her husband Sharrieff had no involvement in Shah's business nor has he been named in any court documents.

Jayne seems to think she is in the same boat despite the circumstances being much different. Her husband — a once-respected Los Angeles attorney — was forced into bankruptcy earlier this year. He is accused of running his law firm like a Ponzi scheme for over a decade.

Jayne, unlike Shah's husband, is a named defendant in several lawsuits with Girardi. His former clients accuse the reality star of helping her partner embezzle money.

In one lawsuit, Jayne is accused of filing a "sham" divorce in an attempt to hide assets from Girardi's creditors. Those creditors include a group of orphans and widows who lost their loved ones in a plane crash. The former powerhouse lawyer scored them a multi-million dollar settlement.

However, they claim he failed to pay out millions and believe he diverted the funds to fund his lavish lifestyle with Jayne.

The trustee presiding over Girardi's bankruptcy is also suing Jayne for the return of $25 million. He claims Girardi used funds from his law firm to pay the bills for Jayne's company EJ Global for over a decade. She reportedly racked up $14 million on her American Express card alone.

So far, she has refused to return a dime and claims everything in her possession was a "gift."
