So yesterday was the hearing for Tom’s conservatorship so that his brother could take over his affairs,” ela disse. “So someone sent me an article about what was said in court, and there was just this one piece of it. That just really bothered me. It says, ‘Tom’s brother asked the court to give him the authority to place Tom in a facility that treats neurocognitive disorders such as dementia.'

Asked how she felt about the ruling, Erika disse, “I’m ready to have a nervous breakdown.

The Bravo star said that she doesn’t agree with Tom being put into a care facility, noting that she hasa little bit of experiencein this department because her grandmother was diagnosed withvery bad dementiaand Alzheimer’s and placed into a home.

I think he needs a caretaker, com certeza. But I don’t think that he needs to be in a home,” Erika continued on the show. “Gostar, I saw my grandmother and I know what they do to you in there. It’s supposed to be great care, but if they lash out, then they medicate you. The only way is down, is what I’m saying.
