Andy Cohen is setting the record straight on Erika Jayne’s future on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The Watch What Happens Live host recently revealed that Bravo has no plans to fire Erika on his SiriusXM show, Radio Andy.
This news comes on the heels of a report claiming that Erika is one of the network’s “most problematic” stars and calls from some RHOBH fans that Erika needs to be kicked to the curb.
“Erika should be fired. Shame on Andy Cohen for giving her this platform,” one fan tweeted.
A second fan quipped, “Obviously, Erika should have been fired already.”
Another tweet read: “Andy Cohen, Erika Jayne needs to be fired. Shame on Erika and Tom [for] taking advantage of poor people for years!”
Andy addressed the tweets on the July 12 episode of Radio Andy.
The Big Daddy of Bravo told guest Michael Rapaport, “I’m getting a lot of tweets from people saying, ‘You have to fire Erika from the show.’ I’m like, ‘You realize that the show is wrapped; we have shot it. You cannot remove her from the show.’”
Andy previously noted in June 2021 that he didn’t think Erika’s legal issues would not “affect her future on the show.”
For now, Andy and the network are content with letting Erika’s story play out on the show.
He continued, “What I think is interesting is that the women found out… this season, it’s like a mystery unraveling, and every episode, you start to get a little more. And I think, I think this week is the episode where the first article about Tom Girardi ripping off his clients comes out and the women start to realize, they start to be like, ‘We’ll wait. What’s this?’”
“You’ll see the reaction to this play out as the weeks go on and it is fascinating,” Andy added.
Erika and her estranged husband, Tom Girardi have been accused of embezzling millions of dollars in settlement funds from clients, including widows and orphans.
As for the season 11 reunion, Andy revealed that episodes will continue to air through September with “at least” 10 more episodes.
“[The Housewives] have not shot the reunion. The reunion is not until after Labor Day,” he explained.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
