The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills changes this season with the cast members after Lisa Vanderpump’s exit during the middle of the show. Erika Girardi AKA Erika Jayne recently opened up about what fans can expect after LVP’s departure. Plus, she also teased about who the new villain will be on the RHOBH!
During a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Erika shared, “There’s lots of shifts in the group going forward. Certainly a cast member not showing up after a certain time, you know, changes the dynamic.” Lisa is no longer in scenes with her co-stars. Erika explained, “It was definitely a difficult spot. We didn’t know what was going on. Because we were thrown such a curve, we, as a cast, kind of gelled together in a way that we have not the previous seasons before.”
Erika feels that Lisa V has been “playing her own game” on social media and in the press since she chose to no longer film with her RHOBH co-stars. Erika said that LVP’s “pigs” diss didn’t bother her. She said, “Pigs are smarter than dogs. It’s a scientific fact. You know what? I’ve been called a lot of things and especially this year, the vitriol has been really, it’s been intense.”
Whether or not LVP will attend the RHOBH reunion is still up in the air. Erika feels that Lisa should attend. She explained, “Lisa should show up. And she should tell her side of the story, and she should sit down with the rest of us and talk about what happened. I hope she’s right in the middle with all of us so that we can all see each other and hear each other equally. An acknowledgment of her hand in the whole puppygate issue would help a lot. The acknowledgment of her involvement, whether directly or indirectly. Whether you told someone directly or you indirectly had someone do it. Just that you did it.”
Erika said the majority of the conflict between her co-stars surrounds OG and current friend of the wives, Camille Grammer. Erika teases that Camille becomes the new villain on the RHOBH after LVP’s departure. Erika said, “There’s some interesting dynamics with Camille and the group. She has a strong opinion about a lot of stuff. It seems to go against the strong opinions of herself, quite honestly.”
There is lots of drama even when Camille is not present. For example, the cast trip to France. Erika said there was “unnecessary yelling, and poking, and prodding, and picking, and sticking” throughout the trip. Erika shared, “You know, when you’re drunk, you talk s**t. That’s what happens. I think we talk s**t about everybody! And everybody turned on each other. You know, it was typical.”
I’m looking forward to watching the rest of this season, and I’m especially excited to see the reunion! I would like for Camille to come back full-time again. I really hope that LVP will attend the reunion. I think all of the cast members need to put everything to bed and move forward!
