Erika Girardi is spilling tea! And it’s piping hot!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star stopped by E!’s Daily Pop and dished all about the drama going down in the 90210.
Daily Pop hosts Justin Sylvester and Morgan Stewart wasted no time asking Erika about rumors that Lisa Vanderpump refused to take photos with the other Housewives at a recent promo shoot for season 9.
“So, we read recently that Lisa Vanderpump refused to be around all the other Housewives at a recent shoot. Is there any truth to this? We know there is but what is going on with that?” Morgan asked.
Erika stirred the pot telling Morgan and Justin, “You know facts are facts.”
“So, that’s a fact?” Morgan clarified.
“That’s a fact,” Erika confirmed.
“Why?” Morgan asked as Justin jumped in, “Were you shocked she would play it this way? Because there’s never been in Housewives history where we have to separate people.”
“Well, I feel like if everyone can take it on the chin – like Rinna has, like Dorit has – like everyone else has. You know it’s an ensemble cast,” Erika explains.
“Do you think she gets special treatment?” Morgan asked.
“It’s an ensemble cast,” Erika replied, making it clear that she thinks LVP does get special treatment but shouldn’t since the show is about the collective group.
Erika went on to agree that sometimes a certain people forget that RHOBH is an ensemble cast.
However, Erika makes it clear that she has no plans to “dethrone a bitch” this year and instead will just be herself.
“No, I’m just Erika that’s it. You know everyone’s being themselves. I’m actually having a really good time and am enjoying myself but it’s going to be a really good season,” Erika reveals. “And that’s what all of this is for…to have a good time.”
Justin, who used to work for Kyle Richards, points out that being a Real Housewife isn’t as glamorous as people think and says that it’s actually quite hard, which Erika agrees with.
So, what is the hardest part about being a Real Housewife for Erika?
“The hardest part is caring about people and having differences with them and not wanting to hurt them in a way that is really bad,” Erika confesses.
But for Erika, the most challenging thing for her to film is any situation where she feels out of control.
“I never like to go to a place where I feel like I’m out of control and that’s whether you lose your temper, you cry or get upset. I’d much rather keep it fun and light but that’s not the game,” Erika admits.
Erika even admits that sometimes it is hard to keep control and stay composed.
“Sometimes yes and sometimes no depending upon the situation, who you’ve been with, what’s leading up to it. How invested I am in this conversation. Sometimes I’m not invested and sometimes I’m really invested” Erika says.
As for newbie Denise Richards, Erika says “I really like her. She’s very sweet.”
When asked if Denise is getting involved in the drama, Erika plays coy saying ” Omg, you guys are making this so hard for me.”
“We did go to Denise’s wedding and she’s really nice. I really like her. I don’t know what is happening with her. I only know what I shoot and I know I really like her and she’s very cool. She has a voice and she uses it.”
