You know you’ve made it when SNL dedicates a skit to you!
It may seem that RHOBH’s Erika Jayne is already a walking parody of herself and SNL has taken notice. The hilarious Cecily Strong played a spot on Erika Jayne, and although the bravolebrity was not mentioned by name, it was obviously her.
The host of the night, Larry David, played the Tom Girardi character and thought it was so funny he broke character multiple times.
In the sketch, a lawyer (played by David) has a party with colleagues to celebrate his new marriage. His new wife, named Candice, is a knockoff Erika Jayne who her husband thinks is either “18 or 55” years of age.
Highlights of the skit include the Erika Jayne character telling the crowd: “Look at you lawyers, serving up Ally McBeal realness. I’m gagging.” In addition, the fellow lawyers responding to her shout outs was pretty hilarious as well. Check out the video below and see for yourself:
Fans on Twitter were going crazy and immediately noticed the similarities between Erika Jayne and Cecily’s character. SNL must have a major Erika Jayne fan on their writing team as this is not the first time Mrs. Girardi has been featured on the show. Earlier this year, SNL had a sketch featuring Chris Pine, in which a group of macho men go head to head ‘lip sync battle’ style to her song “Xxpen$ive.”
Luckily Erika found it as funny as the rest of us did – after all imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Ms. Jayne posted the following on her Instagram:
