After Dorit Kemsley threw Kyle Richards under the bus for claiming that it was “weird” for Erika Girardi to decide to sleep at a hotel instead of Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave’s beach house, it would make sense for Erika to hold it against Dorit for stirring the pot, but she has moved on pretty quickly – unlike the pantygate saga of last season.
Erika even cleared the air with Kyle, so the two of them are all good. Erika had a pretty easy time last episode. She met with her book publisher and she wasn’t at the center of the drama. Instead, she provided the fandom with some solid GIF and meme material when she leaned back to apply her lip gloss while Kyle and Teddi argued with Dorit.
Erika didn’t have a lot to explain about the last episode in her Bravo blog because it was another Dorit-centered episode, but she did have to acknowledge (and subtly promote) her book deal. Erika wrote, “This is a publishing house that has been putting out some of the biggest literary titles over the last century, and now they want to publish my book?! Talk about an honor. It’s certainly intimidating to be a small fish in this big pond, but if the grace of life brought me here, I’m determined to give it everything I’ve got.”
She also gave Dorit a shout out for getting the cover of
a magazine none of us have ever heard of outside of this show Bella Magazine: “And now from books to magazines…Dorit is on the cover of Bella’s Fashion Issue—a very exciting moment—so we’re here at the issue release party in NYC celebrating.”
The tension between Kyle and Erika was truly resolved because Erika didn’t have much to add. She wrote, “I appreciate that Kyle came to me to clear up the situation that happened at the beach house last week.”
Erika and Kyle are good friends and Erika and Dorit are at least on good terms this season, so it’s not surprising that Erika didn’t “take sides” on the show or in her blog. Erika remarked, “Unfortunately, things don’t go as smoothly when Kyle discusses it with Dorit. I hate to see good friends fight, but I’m hoping that after some space and a night’s rest, the ladies will be able to talk this out and clear the air as well.” And if that’s not the case, they can always battle it out during the reunion episodes.
