When news broke that Erika Girardi will be a part of next season’s Dancing With the Stars, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans were excited about it, but some people were wondering if we would get to see Erika Girardi or her performance alter ego Erika Jayne.
It seemed pretty obvious to me that this would be more of an Erika Jayne situation, but I figured she would mix a little bit of her every day life in with her DWTS persona. Apparently, that’s not the case though. Erika will be all about the outrageous alter ego and I am all for it.

Erika has said, “Erika Girardi isn’t even here. We left her at home.” Well that should be interesting, but then again I always feel like Erika is interesting so I’m pretty biased when it comes to rooting for her to succeed.
Of course, the RHOBH star will be all about Erika Jayne with the dance moves, but she also plans to have an outrageous wardrobe and “push every limit ABC will let [her] do.” Hopefully Dorit Kemsley isn’t watching. We all know that she isn’t Erika’s biggest supporter when it comes to wearing a minimal amount of clothing.
I feel like Dancing With the Stars is supposed to be a show about (somewhat) well-known people stepping outside of their comfort zone and trying out dance for the first time, so I am a little bit surprised that a seasoned performer like Erika is on this show (among the many others this season). Erika emphasized that she does not have experience with ballroom dancing and that she is actually anxious about trying something new.
Erika said, “I’m nervous for every [dance routine] because I’ve never done any of them so that’s all new to me.” I can’t imagine Erika being nervous. It seems like she’s always calm, cool, and collected, so it will be interesting for the RHOBH viewers to see another side of her.
