The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has revolved around ‘Puppy Gate’ all season long – so far. The situation resulted in Lisa Vanderpump having a falling out with her friends and co-stars. Some of the RHOBH cast thought that LVP leaked a story about Dorit Kemsley and a puppy she adopted from Vanderpump Dogs to the tabloids. However; LVP denies ever leaking the story. Erika Girardi AKA Erika Jayne recently admitted that LVP might not have been responsible for leaking the story, and said “it’s possible” that Lisa V didn’t actually leak it! Erika also recently admitted that she feels bad for both Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards right now. Aside from the RHOBH drama this season, Erika is focused on her new shoe line and being healthy and in great shape!
Erika opened up about the RHOBH on The Jenny McCarthy Show on Sirius XM and said that the ‘Puppy Gate’ situation this season is like nothing before on Real Housewives. Erika said, “This season, we’ve talked about it as a group, we’ve never seen the hatred, I mean Kyle can speak about it more because she’s been here from the beginning but this is my fourth season. I’ve never seen the vitriol like this. I’ve never seen the clusters of groups and all of that. And it leads somewhere. We all see it. We all get it.”
Erika is over the puppy situation. She shared, “I mean, there certainly are a lot of them. It almost looks mechanical in a way. I’m just saying anything is possible. The numbers don’t lie. There’s a lot. I’ve never seen the hatred like this coming after five people that just happen to disagree with you.”
Radar Online editor, Dylan Howard, issued a statement denying that LVP was the source of the story. Erika admitted that it might not have been LVP, but that it could have been someone from LVP’s camp. Erika also said she doesn’t believe Radar Online’s statements, and she said they wouldn’t give up a source regardless. Erika stated, “Do I believe him? No. Why would he give up a source? I mean, no. I don’t. Why would anyone give up their sources?” Erika thinks it might not have been Lisa V, though. Erika said, “I mean it’s possible that it wasn’t Lisa. It’s possible that it was someone close to her. So, maybe no, it wasn’t her. But it was someone from her camp or someone that was close to her. But why would you have to go that far?”
Erika has been stating that the season will become more “fun.” Erika previously stated that “the tone changes” when LVP stops filming. Erika explained, “You will see the show change again in this season when Lisa goes away and it becomes a different energy and a different path, because there wasn’t all that heaviness. There wasn’t all that fighting. That left and then we could have some fun. Actually, the most fun I’ve had on the show. It was a different tone for sure.”
Erika is in the best shape of her life. She’s all about confidence and couture! She recently opened up to Bravo’s The Lookbook, and said that she felt like she was in the best shape during her ‘PAINKILLER’ music video from 2014. All of her music videos are sexy, but she felt like she looked her during that particular video. She said, “I’ve never been in better shape in my entire life. I’m really proud of this. I was in incredible shape and it shows.”
Erika looks amazing! I’m looking forward to seeing other storylines this season on the RHOBH. I’m super excited for the reunion, too. I think the entire cast is ready to move on from ‘Puppy Gate,’ as are the viewers. Eventually I think the ladies will all be able to put it behind them. I’m looking forward to that!
