Last season Erika Girardi joined RHOBH through her close friend Yolanda Hadid, but as the season went on fans started to speculate about how close they really were. Both women were honest that they had met through their husbands, but since Yolanda and David’s split, there hasn’t been much evidence that they were still friends.
Yolanda praised Erika last season, and even declared her, “one of the most intelligent girls in this group!” Erika went out of her way to be a good friend to Yolanda last season when her health was suffering, but since she left the show many assumed that they were no longer friends.
When asked, Erika has continued to support Yolanda, and over the weekend it looks like the ladies hung out and had a, “girls night,” proving their haters wrong and announcing that they are still friends!
Yolanda and Erika added the same picture (below) to Instagram, and it looks like they had a great time bonding and catching up!
“Yolanda.Hadid: <3Much Love and Respect for this sweet angel……@theprettymess #GirlsNightOut”
“theprettymess: Love this woman <3”
I have a feeling that we will see Yolanda in the audience at some point rooting for Erika on Dancing With The Stars. Erika has Yolanda to thank for her worldwide fame, and I do agree that Erika is one of the smartest girls in the group. While typically I question why one of the seasoned housewives choose a friend to introduce to Bravo, I completely understand Yolanda’s decision; Erika was destined for fame and she was a phenomenal addition to the RHOBH cast!
On the other hand, I also have to agree that Erika and Yolanda originally exaggerated how close they were, but it’s clear that they did have some sort of friendship and will continue to do so for years to come!
