As nontraditional as their marriage is, the union between Tom and Erika Girardi is surprisingly traditional.
Erika revealed that while her alter ego, Erika Jayne may be the ultimate sexpot, in real life she is much more subdued and even was nervous about her sex life being discussed this season. When asked if she was concerned about anything airing this season on Us Weekly‘s ‘Getting Real With the Housewives podcast’, Erika stated she was nervous about discussing her “previous sex life”, particularly her threesome.
As free as Erika is, I am shocked she would even be nervous about this. This is the girl who loves to pat the ‘you know what’ on stage in front of thousands. Erika added “I don’t think that something I did 30 years ago should have an impact on my life today. I really don’t care who judges me for it, to be quite honest.”
When asked what her husband, top attorney Tom Girardi thought about it, Erike responded: “Tom doesn’t watch this show, honey. He doesn’t care. In the true sense of Tom, he will watch when he’s on. He’s gonna watch when he’s on.”
Erika revealed that the only episode he cared about was when he appeared on-screen. Erika states that he would ask her: “When is our episode on, hun? When do they show the one where everybody comes to our house?”
Erika has been very open the season, even being honest about her romantic life with her husband Tom. Erika revealed that the intimate part of their relationship wasn’t as important to her, which isn’t what you would expect to hear from Erika Jayne. Props to Erika for keeping it real vs. painting a wild picture. If her marriage has lasted 20 years in this town they must be doing something right.
