#RHOBH Erika Girardi Hints ‘You Don’t Know What I Go Through at Night’ Is NOT About Her Marriage!

Posted on Mar 15 2017 - 2:58pm by BeachSpin

‘The ice queen is melting,’— the scene Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans have been waiting for will finally air next week!

The explosive display has Erika Girardi already debunking theories about what triggered her Hong Kong meltdown. The standout preview peek where Erika is seen crying and saying, “You don’t know what I go through at night,” has had fans buzzing about what might be behind Erika’s emotional crack.

Erika recently spoke to ET and commented on the clip, claiming that frustration was at the root of the issue. Erika has remarked more than once that she “hates” crying.

“I was [surprised I cried], actually, and I was driven there out of frustration, and really just nothing else to give, you know?”Erika explained during a recent interview with ET. “So, yeah, I was kind of shocked that I did that myself.”   

Erika said that even the cast was curious about what triggered the meltdown, and teased that it’s probably not “what people think it is.”

The most common theory points to Erika’s unconventional marriage to Tom Girardi — so it would seem that Erika is shutting down that notion. Others have speculated that Erika might address her shadowy years as a young mother, separated from her son. However, Bravo has made it obvious that the real hot topic is not up for discussion.

One detail that might come as a surprise is that Erika is speaking to Eileen Davidson, when she breaks down. A surprise maybe — but a game changer? Probably not. Eileen’s superfan status is likely firmly intact. Erika points to frustration, and her comment that she had “nothing left to give” could be telling. Erika has been criticized for being an emotionless blob, offering nothing to cast chemistry. Bravo sought to remedy Erika’s flat character by sending her back home to Georgia, where she shed a few tears and offered snippets about her icy upbringing.

“I think you get to know me, Erika, a little more intimately,” Erika said. “I mean, I’m just a regular person. There’s nothing too great. I mean, I get frustrated by my mom, all the usual stuff. Very human things.”

Could Erika’s frustration lie with a struggle to muster relevancy within the cast? The Erika Jayne factor is wearing thin, and no glam squad can create a personality willing to throw down in a reality arena.

What do you think is behind Erika’s cracked facade? A breakthrough — or just Bravo hyping a floundering Housewife?

  • Oh Snarky Me

    OK, that photo looks like a drag queen. This woman spends tens of thousands of dollars to fly makeup, hair, and wardrobe people with her all over the freaking world and she looks like a drag queen! The other women don’t bring a “glam” squad with them and they look so much better.

    • ALegWithWings

      That’s because her glam squad does drag queen make up not biological woman make up.

      • Rain

        Stil prettier than VanderC ***

        • ALegWithWings

          Oh, I don’t think she’s ugly. I actually think she’s the best looking cast member.

          • Rain

            Sorry my bad. I misunderstood lol. The Erika hate here is unreal

          • HankyPanky

            You misunderstood, all, hahahaha!

          • Rain

            VanderC ***

    • Marsbars09

      Erika drags her “glam squad” around like Linus drags his security blanket.

      • HankyPanky

        Hahahaha

    • Bryan

      Those queen are used to dealing with Drag Queens, that’s all they know.

      • Rain

        And dealing with h VanderC***s too

    • bingo32

      Sure they do except they have 1 or 2 not enough for a squad. And they sure as hell don’t want you to know.

  • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

    Oh Li$a dahling, as your tagline proclaims … YOU will always be the designated (ice) queen of the show.

    • HankyPanky

      I’ll shoot you, with a hair from Rinnas wig

  • Sandy Wood

    Maybe she is alluding to the fact that it’s becoming increasingly harder to drag her 46 yr. old bod over a stage every night.

    • Birdie

      You know that’s right—or possibly that she’s realizing that she looks like a ninny prancing around like a middle-aged porn star/ drag queen.

      • Sandy Wood

        What she perceives as adulation by her audience may be sneering by them.
        She is old enough to be the mother of most of her audience members.

        • Marsbars09

          Or grandma. 😜

          • Rain

            Not as old as VanderC ***

      • equinox2009

        I don’t know if she performs anywhere except gay clubs and they love her. She could be a little more classy as Donna Summer was-Donna’s songs were so danceable and fun-Erika, not so classy

    • Marsbars09

      LOL! Great one Sandy!

      • Sandy Wood

        Thanks Mars 😉

    • HankyPanky

      Even harder for my eyes to watch!!

  • Marsbars09

    Who knows what made Erika break down? Maybe pressure from the viewers to “show emotion”?

    • Clutching My Pearls

      Probably more like sympathy from viewers for a lack of storyline and personality.

    • HankyPanky

      Who really cares?

  • Bryan

    Booooooooooooooo, Hoooooooooooooooooo!!! Hoooooooooo, Booooooooooooo!!!!

  • the underground train

    The thing is I find myself not even caring what she goes through at night. I like Erika Jayne, Erkua Girardi not so much. Just stick to taking the viewers to spectacular places like Mykonos and remain fun and carefree as she was in Mexico.

    • equinox2009

      Exactly. Love it when the “Housewives” go on these fabulous expensive trips that I will never experience (trips&$$$$&dinners&parties ha ha!) These women are so wealthy and live the life That’s why I watch! I put up with fake news with each of them

  • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

    I posted my theory last week (no I’m not getting senile), but since it’s being beat to death come up again …. I suspect Erikunty’s little breakdown is all about her police officer son (fearing he will never come home). Incidentally, her emotions have really run the gamut this season; I’m wondering if there’s any connection to her renewed? interest in acting … #Y&RBigBreak

    • Elizabeth Fisher

      Does her son live with her (and we just never see him)?

    • Sandy Wood

      I can’t help but wonder if her police officer son wondered if she would ever come back to get him when he was a 3yr old toddler.

      • HankyPanky

        Sandy that chokes me, poor little lad. Now she’s prancing around for the world to see.

    • HankyPanky

      No connection, there is no
      emotion.

  • Rain

    Erika rocks!! Queen Erika! The old hag is done . Another hit job article . Slay!!

    • HankyPanky

      Erika didn’t rock her sons cradle.

      • Rain

        VanderC ***

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    I thought she was going to confess to changing Grandhusband’s diaper every night. Guess I was wrong.

    • Marsbars09

      LOL!

    • It is so creepy, and non loving the way she touches him. Just creeps me out. No love at all.

  • Rain

    VanderC*** did it

    • Clutching My Pearls

      Grow up.

      • Rain

        Nope

  • Champagne Hangover

    So, we don’t even get to find out what she goes through at night? Pffft…eff that. I don’t care then, Miss Missy! There. That ougtta learn ya.

    • Marsbars09

      I don’t care what Erika goes through at night either.

      • HankyPanky

        Exactly.

  • sundayhare3

    Erika is not floundering!!!! I know many here would like to think so but on many other sites she is the most popular housewife on this show. These storylines are getting old and boring, all of them, they need to freshen things up and have more fabulous trips without all this drama. It is fun to watch the women treat each other with respect and good will. Watch them have fun together. Honestly, I don’t know about the rest of you but I wouldn’t go on trips with people that I wasn’t going to have a good time with. These women (and I don’t just mean BH) can’t even have a meal together without it turning in to a slugfest. It just isn’t realistic that this is not all maneuvered by production or someone be pushed by production. It’s just all to “convenient” .

    • Rain

      Why do you think the LVP fans are so upset??? BEcuase Erika is now the malt popular HW

      • HankyPanky

        Malt? Vinegar?

        • Rain

          VanderC..***

        • Rain

          I’m flattered you’re obsessed with me LOLOOLOL. Taking time off from the VanderC *** worship camp????

    • Marsbars09

      Great commentary. And I agree I wouldn’t go on a beautiful, exotic vacation just to argue with folks. It’s a waste of a good time, energy and money.

    • bingo32

      They can start by getting rid of the soap duds and don’t drag the bottom of the swamp b/c the will only get Eden types that IMO r an utter waste of time.

  • T Loves Martinis

    She goes thru a lot at night, taking off that sparkly eye shadow alone can be trauma.

    • Oh Snarky Me

      Hell, it probably takes a full gallon of eye makeup remover and a belt sander to get all that crap off her eyes

      • Rain

        What about VAnderC*** makeup?!

  • Sugar in my tank

    Chile there is soooo much shade thrown this woman’s way, I do not understand for the life of me, why. The article says her marriage is unconventional but she is not the only woman on the planet married to an older guy…actually there is another woman on this very show who is married to a much older man, with a child not much younger than her who is married to her best friend…normal huh? but Erika’s marriage is unconventional..sure.

    • Girl Please

      I was just about to say the same thing. I don’t get the Erika hate. The jealousy is real.

      • Sugar in my tank

        Very much so…we all should have an alter ego, I have one and trust it’s not a nice one..

      • Rain

        Girl please I agree with you

      • bingo32

        I don’t get the hate either as I quite like her and get it. I don’t understand why so many jump on her husband when he is one of most revered trail attorneys in the country. He was also the trial attorney for Erin Brockovich& negotiated the huge settlement. He has tried and or/settled many more like it Erika has every right to be proud of her husband and he is of the sort to give back so much to the community. If you ever need a class action or a plaintiff atty he IS your man!

    • Girl Please

      The “she’s cold” is also so stupid. Who cares if she’s cold. Why does that matter to anyone? Oh, unless they really worship her and are desperate to be validated by her and be friends with her.

      • Sugar in my tank

        It matters to Doritos who continues to imply it and question why she’s guarded. I will let folks in on a secret, if Erika is so irrelevant, folks would not have so much to say about her..live and let live..

        • Girl Please

          That’s true. One comment I saw by another poster once.. .”if the crown is so secure. why are they so bothered”. Erica is a threat to LVP and anyone else who wants the limelight

          Like you say – they talk about because she is relevant and a on a high level, and they cannot deal with it.

          • Sugar in my tank

            Totally agree. I don’t have an issue with LVP, she’s funny when she isn’t messy..I think that folks excuse her sh*t when she is knee deep in it. Any HW that does something wrong or insensitive, I call them out on it..from all franchises…whether I like them or not..wrong doesn’t become right because one of your favs is guilty of it..

          • Girl Please

            exactly. There is no need to a be a blind loyal stan

        • HankyPanky

          Folks talk about Erika because they can’t work her out. When they do they realise there is nothing to work out.

          • Sugar in my tank

            She doesn’t have to be worked out..the viewers don’t know her personally.. This is what I have seen. I have seen her respect her husband on camera, I have seen her not be uptight and let her hair down by having an alter ego that her husband completely supports, I have seen her defend her choices to women who has an issue with her being seductive etc and I have seen her berated on sites because she didn’t raise her son as if anyone has the right to judge. Personally, I don’t care what anyone of these women do because their lives don’t impact mine but if you gonna judge her, use the same formula for LVP and any other favorite who is NEVER called out on their bullshit..

      • HankyPanky

        She’s on a reality show?

      • HankyPanky

        She’s on the show to entertain, patting the Puss is not entertaining, neither is sitting there like a frozen turkey!!

      • HankyPanky

        She’s on a reality tv programme!! She’s paid to interact & put out for the show, she’s not delivering!

    • Rain

      I love you xoxo . Perfect post

      • Sugar in my tank

        :^)

  • Glooba!

    Anybody hear what Messy Cohen said about the reunion?

    One quote: “Lisa Rinna got beat up a lot.”
    Me: “Good!”

    • Rain

      Good!!!! Where did you read that ?

      • Glooba!

        The E! website! Messy Cohen did an interview and said it! I Googled “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion” and it was one of the top stories!

        • Rain

          Found it !!! Thanks xoxo

    • Marsbars09

      And it’s an ass whipping long deserved.

      • Glooba!

        I bet LVP was grinning from ear to ear! I mean, I know I’ll be when I watch it!

      • Elle

        Extremely!! It will defintely be refreshing to see!

    • bingo32

      Couldn’t happen to a better more deserving person.But he quickly changed to Ekika Dorit having a cat fight

  • Girl Please

    LVP has it in for Erika. The fact that she said “the ice queen is finally melting” shows what and how she feels about her

    LVP hasn’t let go of Erika calling her a sniper

    • Rain

      Agreed! She has her puppet Dorit the dummy do her dirty work

      • RealitytvJunkie

        You sound so damn stupid….damn!

        • Rain

          Well thank you sweetie! Kisses

        • HankyPanky

          Don’t sound, she is.

      • HankyPanky

        Dorit is no dummy, she’s
        Sussed out the women & played ball. She’s won, well played.

        • Rain

    • carti

      I think LVP would like to befriend Erika despite the fact that Puss is devoid of personality and a sense of humor.. Unfortunately Puss boxed herself in with MousenHousen last season and now she thinks it will show a lack of integrity to befriend LVP. For all her alleged brilliance, Puss pays the long game pretty damn poorly.

      • Girl Please

        Say what

      • Indy Cat

        I think maybe LVP still sees Erika like a bunch of us do. She has a sleazy act, with no redeeming qualities. Her off-stage clothes and her Glam gang are trashy. Her videos are semi-pornographic. I was hoping she would at least be funmy or kindly, but no… she really doesn’t seem to like anyone but herself and her husband.

        • HankyPanky

          Yes!!

    • BriannaG

      I agree,and I don’t get it. What is LVPs problem with Erika? I like both of them, but Lisa’s late comments about Erika annoy me…

      • Girl Please

        I think it’s because: Erica is not easily fooled and manipulated and can see how LVP operates. Remember she said that LVP is a “like a sniper”. I don’t think LVP has ever that go. Erica is also her own person and not going to lick LVP’s ass like Kyle or others. I don’t even think she cares whether her and LVP are friends.

        • BriannaG

          Good point. I thought the “sniper” comment about LVP was spot on) If she still can’t let go of a 2year old comment, then she is more insecure than I thought. I like Erika too for not trying to be BFFs with whoever is more popular now (like Kyle) and keeping her distance)

          • Girl Please

            LVP always talks about people holding grudges, but look at her. How many times has she said “I apologized to Eileen. What more does she want. She still hasnt forgiven me” blah blah

        • HankyPanky

          Erika doesn’t know who she is.

  • Girl Please

    I’m not here for all this Erica hate. I don’t get it. Why are people so bothered? She hasn’t done anything to elicit so much hate

    • Rain

      Exactly! LVP fans are threatened lol. Their queen is dead

      • Holly Bowman

        Yep LVP is a vindictive snake.

        • Rain

          Old witch lol

      • carti

        No. She’s alive. I’m sure of it. I just saw her on twitter.

        • Rain

          Muhahahahaha ! That’s Ken in a wig

          • carti

            No…Ken was with her. He’s alive too. The KIng and Queen of Weho are alive and well and happily reigning over their dominions.

          • Rain

            Muhahahahaha ! Old fart and old decrepit mummy

          • MaryAnne Tillman

            Working hard to lobby a congress, not worth Pinky’s pinky finger in an attempt to save man’s best friend from a horrible torturous death. RHOBH and it’s nonsense do not matter to The Vanderpump’s anymore. Been there, done that, got the tee shirt. Lisa & Ken have the money & determination to accomplish a worthwhile legacy of their time here on earth. Rinna should give some thought to hers.

          • Rain

            Then she should leave the show and go save the planet. Why is she stil on!? This is not friggin PBS

          • MaryAnne Tillman

            People have become aware of Yulin from Lisa being on Bravo. Maybe you should watch a little PBS, at least Sesame Street? It is obvious your education is lacking. There are 2 ll’s in still. Never use an “Exclamation Point” and a “Question Mark” after the same sentence. In your last sentence, you did not use any “Punctuation Mark” at the end. You can rent videos of Sesame Street and watch the parts on Grammar and Spelling. Look at yourself before you judge others. I have a lot of faults, so, I don’t call people names like you do.

          • Rain

            You need to take this LVP worship to your compound and say your prayers there

            Save me the baloney !! All the name calling here about Erika or Eileen, have you shown any concern about that ?? No you didnt so stop your hypocrisy !!

          • Rain

            Go practice your LVP worship in your compound . No one cares

          • delaney

            a bit prickly, are you? If we wanted a grammar lesson we’d enroll in class. no thanks.

          • HankyPanky

            ???

          • HankyPanky

            Ignore them Mary Anne, the expression ” Once an idiot always an idiot ” applies to them well.

          • HankyPanky

            Too right X

    • Holly Bowman

      Agree

    • bingo32

      ITA. I like her. She adds a different dimension to show which is refreshing.

      • HankyPanky

        Which dimension? What’s refreshing about a wooden puppet.

    • HankyPanky

      Not hate, I just don’t like her.

  • Oh Snarky Me

    OMG are the kids home for spring break and on the computer? “You’re a hater! If you don’t like who I like you must be jealous! Ya, ya, you just wish you could be her!!”

    Or people have different f*cking opinions about things and the fact that they don’t agree with you means absolutely nothing more than they think differently. No, that can’t be it! It must be that people with different opinions are scared and jealous–ya, that’s it. Seriously STFU and quit whining. Express your opinion, make your point and then STFU and quit whining. Did I already say that?

    • Birdie

      IKR–it’s like a Teen Beat invasion. Ridiculous.

      • Marsbars09

        Teen Beat invasion on AATT. LMAO! Do they still publish Teen Beat?

        • Elle

          😂👏👍

    • Holly Bowman

      This Blogger is just hateful period. Very sad. She LOVES LVP and is up her ass ad nauseum.

    • Marsbars09

      Thank you for taking a stand Snarky. You would think these reality TV show characters pay these loons’ bills the way they defend them.

    • carti

      It’s definitely spring break. I’m experiencing nitwits from instagram having meltdowns over one or two comments that I made MONTHS ago with which they don’t agree. It’s the most vile,aggressive, profane bs that is hitting my iphone alerts in the middle of the night and that makes me want to put the gris-gris on a whole flippin’ generation of twats and wankers.

      • Marsbars09

        OMG! I’m so sorry to hear that carti! People are absolutely crazy. It’s like they don’t live in the REAL world.

    • Rain

      Muhahahahaha

    • ALegWithWings

      Yes, it actually is Spring Break. 😂

  • Holly Bowman

    Dorit is LVP’ s minion it is soooo obvious. She doesn’t trust PK and won’t let go of her insecurities about Erika. Who has done NOTHING to her. Except be gracious. Beachspin is full of hate and needs to get laid.

  • Rain

    VanderC*** must go

    • carti

      It will never happen. 🙂 It’s Pinky’s show.

      • Rain

        It was. No more

        • carti

          Hmmm. Did I miss something? Is not the whole cast including Puss and Eileen Diarrheason and NewProudMommy not organizing their schedules, travel and storylines around LVP’s charitable endeavors? Have they all not tried to work their way back into LVP’s good graces? Yep…these ladies have fallen into line. They know they know the drill. Beg forgiveness and start jumping with Pinky says “jump”.

          • Rain

            The VanderC*** jump ?

          • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

            No shade, but I think Li$a lost a lot of steam last season. I suppose she’s still the “queen” per se, but it’s not as obvious as it once was … not since the two mainstream actresses (Rinna and Eileen) joined the show. I would wager that even after 7 seasons, 3 out of 5 average people on the street know Soapy and Sudsy but still don’t know who LVP is.

          • bingo32

            I have to diiasgree. The soap duds r only known if one is a soap nut. As D actresses who has heard of them? ANd the 2 seasons they have been on they have co-opted Kim’s life to use as their storyline. Nothing authentic about either one.

          • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

            Both are far better known than LVP, especially Rinna, between Melrose Place and being Mrs. Harry Hamlin alone. If you don’t watch RHOBH. you wouldn’t know who Li$a is.

          • HankyPanky

            What about the rest of the world? I’d never heard of Rinna, Ed? Harry vaguely, was he in Rhony…

          • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

            I guess it’s American thing. But oh yes! So you didn’t know Erika was a multi Grammy award winning recording artist or that Kim and Kyle are tied with De Havilland and her sister Joan Fontaine for being the only siblings to have won Academy Awards in a lead acting category. Soapy and Sudsy have a slue of daytime Emmy’s and Harry Hamlin has wond multiple prime time Emmys for his work on L.A. Law and Madmen. New comer Saloon is the daughter of iconic hair mogul Vidal Sassoon, and Dorit is a direct descendant of an American empire called Frito Lay, who brought the world Lays potato chips, Fritos, and Doritos. Oh yeah, and Li$a (a Brit) owns a few tourist traps restaurants. There, now you’re up to speed!

    • barbara

      Hey Rain, I just found this site. Glad to see a friend here. I recognize some names from years passed but glad you’re here!! 🙂

  • Nope. Still a blob. One with so much crap on her face she cant cry. This does nothing to change my mind on her.

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    This will turn out to be another example of Bravo showing a clip, creating a buzz & when the episode airs, it will be a major let down.

    • BriannaG

      As always. The clip was created to make us believe that Erika has problems in her marriage. And later we’ll find out that it was something different and not so important.

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        Yes. Like the pain she is in after preforming or something along those lines.

        • Sandy Wood

          Yep, arthritis is a bitch.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            All of that squatting has to take a toll on her knees. Erika is no spring chicken.

            Her knees are used to kneeling 😉

          I have spinal stenosis, a couple of troublesome discs, and resulting sciatica. I manage to meet all my “To Do” list items, but sometimes I am wiped out for a day or two afterwards. Add in shopping and doctor visits and I might be down for a week. Since I can’t go around drugged I postpone taking my meds until I am back at home. I have quit complaining or saying anything to anyone. I keep my problems to myself rather than burdening my family/friends with it. The surgeries that might help will not be permanent solutions. My arthritis will still be present.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            That’s awful. My uncle has herniated discs & he still hasn’t gone in for surgery. There are days when he is totally out of it because of the meds.
            So I understand why you put off taking them until you are in for the night.
            I hope you have a speedy recovery. LASIK surgery is a day surgery but I don’t know how long is the down time.

          • bingo32

            I hope you have really considered all the side affects as they are now becoming more pronounced. WHen LASIK first became available they had no long term studies. Nw they do and peeps are regretting havng procedure done bc of the halos and terrible dry eye

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            This could be why he keeps putting off the surgery, but we were all trying to tell him that he if picks up his grandchild or slips on ice & he would be paralyzed.
            Thanks for the update. I should take some time to look into it.

          • bingo32

            If u have just stenosis causing u pain, the surgery is nothing and instant pain relief. Getting into more complex issues takes a good neurosurgeon & orthopod preforming together. I had a spinal fusion bc of spondy and soooooooooo wished I hadnt done it. I’m in more pain than b4 I had it albeit I need to have the screws out as they have created bursas from being on thin side. But my other docs won’t let me have the surgery.

          • Indy Cat

            I have talked to many people who have had various types of back surgery. Not as single person had glowing experience. I adopted a sweet little spaniel from the Humane Society and have managed to get more mobility by walking her three or more times a day. I am slowly gaining more strength and endurance.

        • HankyPanky

          Like the pain I’m in after watching her pat her Puss !!

    • itsjustme

      My guess is she’s crying about how her son is a cop, and that is what she’s talking about when she says ” you don’t know what I go through at night “.

      • barbara

        I hope that’s all it is. Please don’t let it be marriage troubles.

        • bingo32

          No No, she says in above article not about marriage. Altho she apparently addressed her comment to ED, so pray that Erika doesn’t need to spend 2 seasons apologizing to ED for having a mini-meltdown

          • barbara

            I know they said it wasn’t the marriage but I just saw online yesterday that Ericka’s husband, was seen very cozy with another, looks to be a younger blond. It was on of those stories you see on the right side of your computer.

  • BriannaG

    I kind of get Erika’s annoyance with Dorito. I am a lot like Erika in life, I don’t trust people in general, I don’t befriend just anyone, I always keep distance with people. I have very few friends, but I am a very loyal friend myself. And people like Dorito, who come so hard on people, demand all attention, try to insert themselves in other people business immediately and talk too much, absolutely frustrate me. IMO, Erika was very patient with Dorito, I would have barked at her mush earlier)))

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Brianna! I also generally keep my distance from people I don’t know. I have to “warm up” to you. I don’t take too well to people getting up all in my personal space and business when I don’t know them.

      • BriannaG

        Hi, Marcy) ITA. Trust and respect must be earned. I was brought up this way)

    • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

      Hi BriannaG … (everyone all together now) …. “you’re special”! We sound very similar, except I don’t like most people until they give me a reason not to … and admittedly, I can be rather arrogant, judgmental, impatient, and intolerant. Hey this is fun, just like group therapy:-)

      • BriannaG

        Hi, Enigma, and thanks. It is fun)))) I think it’s normal not to let just anyone in your life. And protect your private life. Dorito’s needy behavior seems crazy to me)

        • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

          Being a fancy man, I’ve become a master at “protecting” my private life … and developed an armor of steel in the process.

          • MsM

            Ya’ll are people after my own heart. lol I see some of the worst sides of people all day long and while I find it rewarding to help others help themselves, at the end of the day I want to go home and not deal with anybody or anything. As an individual I’m very much an introvert and almost antisocial. I have a very small circle of very close friends and I’ve had most of them for years – I don’t trust just anybody and I’m extremely careful with what I share with people. It’s not worth the headaches to be ‘out there’.

          • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

            I feel ya sista … it’s a different world out there these days. SM and the internet in general has changed EVERYTHING; some good some bad … but one of the positive things is it has brought us all together.

          • MsM

            Truth! HUGS Snark!!!

    • barbara

      Were you just in my head? 🙂

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      I would get that if Erika was consistent but Rinna and Eileen went in hard with Erika and she lapped that up.

      • HankyPanky

        She’s consistently boring

  • zzzzzzzzzzzzz
    Someone is looking for attention. Or drank too much wine.

  • HearWhatISay

    Ericka is just plain boring. If someone dislikes Ericka it does not mean they like LVP. I don’t the connection. Ericka is just not a good fit for reality TV she brings nothing to the table. She is very guarded and an observer vs. a participant. Nothing wrong with that, but on a show like this it is like watching paint dry.

    • barbara

      Wow, I couldn’t disagree more. She is the most honest and doesn’t waste words needlessly. When she speaks it is not BS but substantive. I love her and she is now the main reason I watch the show. I think Dorit fits your description. 🙂

      • bingo32

        ITA with you. I have always liked Erika and I admire a woman who is not afraid to be herself and stand up when needed. SHe doesn’t NEED peeps to like her

        • barbara

          Thanks. I just love her. She is the main reason I watch this show now. Honestly, Bravo could do a show about her only, like they did for Kim on the Atlanta show and I believe it would be a hit. I know I’d be there sitting on my sofa w/popcorn. LOL

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        Honest?? did you see last season when she twisted the story to Yolanda and then flat out lied about it to the rest of the HWs? Or when she said in Mexico as they left dinner that they all “know Rinna said it” when the others were giving Rinna the benefit of doubt? She didn’t tell Rinna that did she? But she ran back with tales of Dorit and the bag of pills.

        • barbara

          OMG, has any and I mean any Housewife not lied or miss represented themselves at least a hundred times or more? Come on….:)

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            Not to the degree Erika has – her entire entry to the show was based on a lie.

          • barbara

            We will respectfully disagree.

          • HankyPanky

            Has she mentioned her friend Yolanda this season??

          • Birdie

            She said that she doesn’t like weak women who constantly need support–whoops, she forgot faking that with Yo was how she got onto the show. Another lie.

        • HankyPanky

          She lied to their faces
          about telling Yolanda. Reckon she didn’t realise she was taped saying “we know it’s true” about Rinna. How many f…. means how many faces does Erika have?

      • HankyPanky

        She speaks mainly in her
        “scripted” T/H
        Otherwise she tends to mumble or throw snide remarks. She appears wooden even when “performing”

        • barbara

          It’s always amazed me how people can watch the same thing and have an entirely different take. Makes the world interesting. 🙂

          • HankyPanky

            Very interesting, takes all sorts..

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Totally agree. Everything is an act and contrived. I hate that she goes everywhere with her make up artists etc – it shows this is purely a job and it ruins the premise of this being a reality show. I know all the women are promoting themselves one way or another but Erika is so obvious about it and we don’t actually see the real Erika at all. What woman goes away with girlfriends and needs to bring make up and hair people so she can look “the best”?

      • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

        I totally get what you’re saying, but in her defense we have seen her schlepping around in T-shirts, tennys, even even no make up. I think her bringing the boys on the trips is for them.

    • Rusty Fender

      The Gays like Erika, the gays are a big part of the viewing audience fore these shows. It’s all ratings.

  • Ginny girl

    It’s possible that Erika may worry about her son working at night. Think about it… it’s totally understandable ~

    • besimon

      That’s what I thought. He’s a cop and we had all of those police shootings last year.

    • Bob Smith

      This pig didn’t worry about her son when she abandoned him as a child,why worry about him now? The only one she worries about is her sorry ass !!!

      • Ginny girl

        From what I understand, from certain interviews that Erika has given, her son presently resides @ her home. Try not to judge her… or challenge the love she has for her son. We all do the best we can…

        • Bob Smith

          Ginny..the fact is she abandon her little boy and husband. Fame was more important to her. Now she has it plus a husband that will be wearing diapers b4 long. Let’s see how long she sticks around 4 that !!

          • shirley terwey

            No she will hire a nurse for that . Taking care of an elderly person would
            creep her out.

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    I suspect this is about her son and his job as a police officer. Erika seems to be playing for sympathy this season with her mom. What I don’t understand is why she is picking on things that seem fairly minor and blaming her mom on her attitude towards women when her dad walked out on them and she had zero contact with him – where is her distrust of men? Usually people raised by single parents appreciate all they did despite their imperfections.

    • HankyPanky

      I understand that she would be
      worried re her son working for the police. I would be too. But I don’t understand her attitude to her Mother, don’t know what she did, but at least she raised her, along with her Grandparents, didn’t leave her?

  • HankyPanky

    Emotionless blob, hahaha Beach. What Erika goes through at night is worrying about what face to put on, & which persona to play the next day.

  • Rusty Fender

    It’s probably because her son who lives with her is a police officer and with the current climate, I don’t blame her for worrying at night or daily for that matter.

  • bbb

    Oh come on what a fake cry, probably showing ED her bad acting skills.

  • shirley terwey

    I don’t believe her. There’s more to the story that she won’t divulge. I suspect it is about her marriage. The reasons she gave for her breaking down and crying is false.

  • shirley terwey

    I wish they would take her of the RHOB, she disgusts me. And she can take Eileen and Rhinna
    with her. All three are nasty, arrogant , think they are better than everyone and they act cockie.
    I don’t much watch this show anymore because of those three- they make me want to throw up with all their narcissistic hottie attitude and how they flaunt themselves. They are such phonies.

  • Alwaysalady

    First off I have always thought of Erika as a trollop. Her marriage is a scam really. The only reason she stays with Tom is so he can fund her production company that he started for her. No one else would take her on. I find her loudness annoying and her talent is sorely lacking any realness. I find her arrogant and classless as well. Designer clothes and Cartier jewelry does not all of a sudden give one class. I would not ever associate with a woman like her.

    Dorit is annoying too. I am British and the accent is really annoying knowing she has never lived here. Her husband is bankrupt. Ask anyone here. It seems her role in this is to promote her husband and Boy George. I suppose they borrowed to get into the house and to sustain their lifestyle which is probably why Erika said she is a “Bull@@@@@er”.

    This season seems way too scripted and way too lame. Lisa Vanderpump is the only reason I even tune in really. If she was gone I would be too.
