Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi are calling it quits. After 21 years of marriage, the Real Housewife of Beverly Hills has filed for divorce.

The star told E! News,

"After much consideration, I have decided to end my marriage to Tom Girardi. This is not a step taken lightly or easily. I have great love and respect for Tom and for our years and the lives we built together."

The couple married in 1999, but it was never completely smooth sailing for the pair. Erika consistently dealt with skeptics who questioned her marriage to a man 33 years older than her. On the hit Bravo show, she said:

"I mean, I'm tired of having to justify my 20-year marriage. Go get a 20-year marriage, then come f--king talk to me."
