The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is back in full force and this season is on track to be some of Bravo’s most memorable moments. The dynamic cast has proven to work well together; the ladies we love from season five plus the perfect addition! New girl on the block Erika Girardi joined this group and was a standout from the start. There is no one else like Erika, she’s an enigma for sure and she keeps us wanting more! She’s managed to entertain us without causing or engaging in drama, proving she’s one classy lady and deserves that diamond in (and on) her hand!
Here at All About The Real Housewives we got the pleasure of catching up with Erika, she dished on everything from her first season on the show to her go-to beauty tips, even revealing more about her alter ego; Erika Jayne!
AATRH:How were you approached to join the show? Were you hesitant at first, or excited to take on this new adventure?
EJ: I was brought into the show by my friend Yolanda Foster. Of course when you hear the word reality tv you have a little bit of hesitation but I thought if Yolanda is doing it, how bad could it be?..
AATRH: You said on Watch What Happens Live that you never saw an episode of The Real Housewives of any city before you joined the show, did you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills once you had officially become a housewife?
EJ: No, truthfully I saw my first episode when I came home from Dubai.
AATRH: How did Tom feel about you joining the show? Do you ever get tired of having to “prove” yourself because of the age difference?
EJ: Tom is being nothing but supportive.
AATRH: Not only did you prove you are a good friend, but that you are not a drama queen when you immediately shut down the rumors of Yolanda faking her illness; how do you feel about the ladies making it a story line this season?
EJ: Obviously all of us wish there was something else to talk about but this is where the show is going and I think that as time has passed everyone understands just how serious Yolanda’a health challenges are.
AATRH: You are gorgeous, any beauty secrets you can share with us?
EJ: I believe in the basics.. staying out of the sun, no smoking, limited alcohol intake, lots of water and a regimen skin care.
AATRH: Your music is great; when was Erika Jayne “born” and how long do you plan on performing for?
EJ: Erika Jayne was born in 2007 and I plan on performing until I can’t…I am a showgirl.
AATRH: Now that filming is over who are you the closest with from the cast? Which of the ladies are you still in contact with?
EJ: I talk to Yolanda almost everyday and we make a point to get together at least once a week. And I keep in contact with the other girls via text or phone call.
AATRH: Were there any cast members you disliked this season?
AATRH: How was your overall experience on the show? Do you have any regrets from the season?
EJ: I have no regrets, I live my life with no regrets and I feel that The Real Housewives have been not only fun but challenging and has allowed me to step out of my comfort zone.
Thanks Erika for taking the time to talk with us here at AATRH! Looking forward to what’s to come the rest of the season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!
