Even though Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ Erika Girardi is the new kid on the reality series’ block, she is already turning out to be a fave among the series’ watchers. Erika might have bimbo looks but don’t get it twisted, the doll is likable–smart, tough and definitely, a straight shooter. A Beverly Hills lawyer’s wife by day, then club queen, Erika Jayne, when the sun goes down, she recently chatted with Celebuzz about life with her series co-stars, and in particular, bff Yolanda Foster, who is still struggling with Lyme disease battle.
When it comes to forming close bonds with the RHOBH crew, Erika does not discriminate, she’s an equal opportunity friend to all despite their shade and shenanigans, “I think that we’re all friends and I talk, text, and visit all of them.” Erika’s bond with Yolanda however goes way beyond the surface as evidenced on a recent show, where the mega wealthy performer privately jetted her ailing friend from the hospital and back to her home. As far as the scuttlebutt among the RHOBH ladies with regards to Yolanda’s health, Erika is not adding any fuel to their fire. In true blue friend fashion, Erika has proven herself to be a ‘ride or die’ friend to Yolanda, supporting her during her roller coaster Lyme disease ride. She brought Celebuzz up-to-date on her girl’s health struggles, “She’s having her good days and not so good days. I think there are more good days than bad days though. I think she’s doing better now than when we shot the show, but she’s certainly not out of the woods yet. As to why Erika have formed such a tight bond with Yolanda, the answer is simple their relationship is just simpatico, she explains, “I think Yolanda and I are just compatible, loving people that just kind of like the same things. When you find that kind of connection, you keep it.”
Bethenny Frankel is determined to have Skinnygirl take over the world. The Real Housewives Of New York star brags that she’s a businesswoman, not a reality star, however she won’t hesitate to slavishly use reality TV to promote her never-ending barrage of products. The latest Skinnygirl offering? Candy.
We’ll talk about Skinnygirl candy a bit later – first let’s talk about Real Housewives Of New York and Bethenny’s legal wranglings with Sonja Morgan! You know – our version of candy.
As for the Bravo influence on her business success, Bethenny dismisses it. “To be honest, at this point it has not as much as you’d imagine to do with being on television.” If that is the case, then why was 3/4 of last season’s RHONY dedicated to Skinnygirl shill? Moving on…
While some of the reality TV stars in the path of Winter Storm Jonas hightailed it to Florida (We’re looking at you, Luann and Ramona!), others stayed behind to weather the storm. Then they took to Instagram to share pics. Nothing – not even a blizzard – can get between these reality TV stars and their social media.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.

Ramona Singer is a lot of things but lazy, she ain’t! A real hustler by nature, always in search of the next BEST thing, the Real Housewives of New York City’sfrenzied co-star has pretty much always been a hard worker. Over the years she has launched a fashion and skincare line, created a jewelry line for the HSN and let’s not forget, her eponymous Pinot Grigio. Yep, Ramona is certainly a Jill-of-all-trades, so why not saunter into the hair biz? (It’s like a Real Housewives rite of passage!) Ramona is now selling real human hair extensions.
Ramona reportedly inked a deal with Lux Beauty Club’s co-founder Victoria Flores for a line of hair extensions that she will be promoting (and why not?) on her famed reality show. An insider who spoke to Page Six revealed, “She’s 100 percent involved. It’s real human hair extensions and she’s all about it.” Ramona is said to be excited about her new venture and very much wants her co-stars to sample the silky goods.
I’m confused – I thought Kim Richards was fired from Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills? Is she getting a royalty check every time someone says her name because she’s literally all anyone talks about. And Erika Jayne‘s face above, that’s how I feel when Kim gets brought up. I imagine Kyle Richards probably has an interesting enough life without discussing Kim.
First there is her questionable fashion taste, yet she is the owner of not one, but TWO luxury kaftan emporiums (Did Kyle really repurpose a lace table cloth into a mini dress last night? I applaud her dedication to sustainable fashion and support of Project Runway challenges in the real world sphere). There is her friendship with Morally Corrupt Faye Resnick, her drama with other sister, Kathy Hilton, the Machiavellian womb which produced Paris Hilton. Then there is Kyle’s ultimate frienemy-ship with Lisa Vanderpump because of which Kyle often is seen making an ‘I drank a fiber smoothie but forgot my Depends’ face.
Oh, and the woman has like 46 feet of hair, which does tricks: Hair flips! Helicopter spins! Plus she can do splits. And Kyle’s married to “Maurice,” who may or may not be sour that LVP stole his Bravo spinoff, which is only karma because he may or may not have stolen Rick Hilton‘s clients (according to Truth Cannons). What I’m alluding to here is that Kyle has a lot to work with which doesn’t involve Kim. Plus, she’s also doing a closet renovation, so there’s that.
While I personally thought Bethenny was unfathomably rude to a woman she just met, who was a guest in her home, Bethenny defends her cutting comments to Erika because she was asked to “stir it up” a bit and was simply giving the producers what they wanted. Isn’t this reality TV – shouldn’t we doing what’s real?
