Erika Girardi reached her “breaking point” while filming season 11 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Issues between Erika and her RHOBH co-stars started popping up after her and estranged husband Tom Girardi’s divorce and legal issues started making headlines, thus becoming a storyline on the show.
In the season 11 trailer, fans got a taste of Erika’s anger after co-star Sutton Stracke accused her of multiple things “without any proof” during one cast dinner.
That is “when Erika’s anger comes out,” an insider explains to Us Weekly.
The source adds that the Pretty Mess singer “gets super emotional” during season 11 after her co-stars “kept accusing her of certain things, and she had to keep defending herself.”
“From day one, Erika was, like, ‘I will tell my story, but you have to let me tell you myself.’ Then news kept coming out about all these legal issues Tom was involved in, and it led to the girls wanting answers,” the source says. “They kept trying to stir up more drama on top of the existing drama Erika had going on in her personal life.”
Despite Erika’s anger, the insider adds that she is “not holding back” this season regarding her divorce.
“She has nothing to hide. She was very open about her divorce, very honest,” the source explains. “Like she said [in the teaser], she did not see her marriage ending in a divorce.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returns to Bravo Wednesday, May 19, at 8 p.m. ET.
