“Shut up. [Laughing] Shut the fuck up about things you weren’t there for. ‘Cause you don’t know anybody. I’m sorry, is that rude? Believe me, you’re going to have to comment on stuff that happens in front of you, so just wait until that happens. ‘Cause if you go out on a limb, you’re going be the only one out there, honey. And no one’s coming to save you, girl,” Erika explained.

As for having aspects of her life be open to the public, Erika says “It’s not easy. I think that some things should remain private, and they always will. I don’t think that anyone should be a complete and total open book. Let’s just take my mother, for example. I did not want to go home, and I had a long conversation with the producers, and I said, “Listen, this is a very sensitive part of my story, and I need to trust that you guys will help me out here.” And they really did. They told the story as is, and I appreciate that.”

Speaking of boundaries, Erika says she sets clear boundaries with the RHOBH producers about what she’s willing to film.

“Well, sure. You can only share what you want to share. At the end of the day, you’re a grown person, and you can say no. You can always quit the show. You either want to do it, or you don’t,” Erika says.

“If you’re living in the moment and you’re passionate, and you say something, perhaps it’s meant one way, but it comes across another; well, you’re going to live with that. And maybe only you knew what you meant, but well, fuck it. Too late now,” the RHOBH star wraps.

Only Erika could do this kind of photoshoot and get away with it! I love it – it’s fun and over the top just like Erika.
