Not going anywhere!
Buckle up Bravo fans because Erika Jayne isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
A new report from The Sun reveals that Erika is “100 percent returning to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” for season 12 despite recently admitting her lawyers begged her to quit the show.
An insider said: “Erika is on board for the new season and production will begin in coming days. It was a no-brainer. She’s the most bankable star at the moment, and producers don’t want to miss a minute of this scandal – which continues to unfold day by day.”
“Erika still has supporters, despite her legal issues, and even those who hate her are tuning in to see this all play out on screen,” the source continued.
In an unusual move, Bravo is resuming filming on season 12 of RHOBH right as season 11 finishes airing. This unprecedented move has only happened a few times in Housewives history. Usually, production waits several months before production picks up again however the network doesn’t want to miss any of the action surrounding Erika’s life.
“She hopes everything will be resolved, and people will finally start to believe her story that she’s innocent in all of this,” the insider explained.
Another source recently revealed to Us Weekly that Erika’s $600,000 salary will also increase for season 12.
According to the source, there’s “no question” that Erika is going to “demand a higher paycheck” if she returns for another season after being “put through the wringer and following producers’ orders.”
Part 2 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 reunion airs on Wednesday, October 20 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
