Newbie Erika Jayne was well on her way to being a fan favorite from the minute she joined The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but this week her tiara was tarnished. She took to her blog to defend herself, swearing she isn’t a liar.
In fact, that’s the first thing Erika wants to clear up. “I am not a pussy or a liar. I never said that Lisa Rinna was the one who said anything about Yolanda’s children. I am, however, protective of my friend.”
She continues, “When Yolanda asked me what happened at the BBQ, I told her that Kyle and Lisa Vanderpump were talking about Anwar and Bella. What Yolanda goes and does with that information, I do not know. She obviously has every right to confront people who were talking about her children, and she did so without my knowledge.”
Erika was irked at the timing of the ladies’ confrontation, “Confronting or attempting to ambush me in my room, at my party, after my performance seems rather contrived. “Getting to the bottom” of this seems to be of great concern to these women, yet no one would be talking about this if it wasn’t for them questioning/talking about Yolanda and her kids in the first place.”
She doesn’t want to let the ladies dump any blame in this situation on her, “After mulling it over and being the great detectives they are, they realize it’s me who told Yolanda what happened at the BBQ. So what? She’s my friend, she asked what happened, and I told her. Let’s not try to shift the blame on to me in order to detract from their behavior (Munchausen, kids, etc.). No one in this room needs to pretend to be the victim. These women are not stupid and are quite aware of every move they make and every word they say.”
Erika wants all talk of Yolanda’s illness – at least the questioning of its validity – to be done and over with. “As far as me “shutting down” this conversation…yes it should be shut down, the whole thing. No more talking about the validity of Yolanda’s illness and no more talking about her children’s health. This is not acceptable and it is not the way “friends” treat each other.”
TELL US – SHOULD ERIKA STOP WITH THE YOLANDA DEFENSIVENESS? DID SHE LIE TO HER CO-STARS?
