Erika Jayne

Erika Girardi real housewives of beverly hills

Unlike some rookie Housewives, Erika Jayne slayed her first season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. On her second season, she went up against Dorit Kemsley over the never-ending pantygate story line and most of the viewers were on her side. During that same season, Erika also flipped out against her good friend Eileen Davidson for no discernible reason, which was not something most viewers could get behind.

This season, Erika made up with Dorit, but now she’s butting heads with new girl Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave at every turn. She snapped at Teddi when she innocently asked about her father. She snapped at Teddi for accusing her of having “pretend amnesia,” which is understandable, but her reaction was definitely over the top. Of course, there are many Erika fanatics, but the tides have definitely turned this season, at least a little bit. There are a lot of people siding with Teddi. So what did Erika think going into the Season 8 reunion?

Lisa Vanderpump - Yulin Documentary

Last night was a good episode of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. There was no particular reason – it wasn’t filled to the brim with drama, but it showcased the women in their elements and was filled with some real moments like Kyle Richards ultimate friendship faux pas. Excitingly we also got a lot of background information on Lisa Vanderpump, plus Dorit Kemsley almost overdosed (kinda, sorta) on flu medication which was hilariously so Dorit. (Yes, I’m a sadist). However the big exciting news was their trip to Berlin.

Unfortunately there is more bad news for Lisa and Ken. Days after losing Pink Dog unexpectedly, Pikachu passed away. Now Lisa is worried for the fate of all her dogs. She looks them over, this mountain of fluffery and docility, she decides each needs to be installed with a tracking device and cloned straight away. It’s what Nanny Kay would recommend after all! And she was a woman of sense; a medic during WWII who survived The Blitz, and then, in her elder years, moved with Lisa and Ken to LA when they opened their first restaurant there – a PIZZA JOINT in the Sherman Oaks Mall. So, Lisa did live in The Valley?

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is shocked by Erika

When Erika Girardi (and her alter ego Erika Jayne) joined Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she was an immediate fan favorite during her rookie season. After her unprovoked Hong Kong meltdown during her second season and her freak out at new cast member Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave this year, that “fan favorite” status in jeopardy.

Obviously there are a lot of people who are going to adore Erika no matter what. There is a lot to like: she has an intriguing double life, she says hilarious things during her on-camera interviews, and she has such an over the top sense of style. The list goes on and on, but it is tough to watch her snapping at Teddi over and over again, when it appears to be unprovoked. Obviously none of the viewers know every single word exchanged between the two of them, but based on the episodes alone, Erika’s interactions with Teddi have been less than flattering- and that’s putting it nicely.

Erika Girardi On Her Relationship With Dorit Kemsley After The RHOBH Reunion:

Even though the Real Housewives franchise has been going strong since 2006, there still hasn’t been a gay full-time cast member. That is so shocking for many reasons. It felt like that could have been a possibility on Real Housewives of New Jersey when Rosie Pierri was making her regular cameo appearances. Everyone loved Rosie. She brought heart and humor to the show. She even had an organic connection to the cast. Why wasn’t she promoted to a full-time cast member? That was a definite misstep.

During Season 7 of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Robyn Levy and her wife made occasional appearances. We never got to know her very well, but she was close with the cast members during that time period, so why didn’t she get more screen time? All of the full-time cast members have been straight women. Erika Jayne, an avid LGBTQ advocate, thinks it is time for a change. I couldn’t agree more.

Instagram Roundup: Scheana Marie, Margaret Josephs, Shannon Beador, Sonja Morgan, & More!

It feels like Christmas Eve for reality TV fans. There are so many new seasons on the way and that means that your favorite reality TV stars are sharing behind-the-scenes photos.

Orange County Housewife Tamra Judge was a good sport holding up an orange for the Real Housewives of Orange County opening credits…while she leaned on a scooter with her broken foot. New York Housewife Sonja Morgan shared a photo from one of her on-camera interview looks. Sonja’s costar Tinsley Mortimer ditched the glam squad (for a moment, at least) and  put on her own lip gloss.

Other reality stars shared photos hanging out with their kids like Teen Mom stars Javi Marroquin, Kail Lowry, and Leah Messer. Kristin Cavallari enjoyed spring break with her children. Rachel Zoe shared a sweet selfie with her two sons.

One of the more random photos from this week was of Real Housewives of Orange County alum Lydia Mclaughlin and Zac Efron- which was for her magazine, of course.

Check out all of those photos and more in this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup in the gallery below.

Teddi

Some Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers think Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is “boring.” Others think that she is refreshingly normal among this group of women who rely on glam squads, private jets, and drink-specific glassware. No matter what your opinion is, no one can deny that the newest Beverly Hills Housewife is a class act.

Teddi has not got along with Erika Girardi or her alter ego Erika Jayne all season. Erika jumped down her throat during the Vegas trip when Teddi innocently asked about her father. Erika skipped out on Teddi’s beach house sleepover to stay in a hotel, which did not go over well with Teddi or the rest of the cast. After that, they seemed to be on the same page while mediating the triangle of friendship drama with Lisa Vanderpump, Dorit Kemsley, and Kyle Richards. And then Erika erupted when Teddi accused her of having “pretend amnesia,” i.e. being a liar, and Teddi stormed out of the restaurant in tears.
