During her first season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Erika Girardi and her alter ego Erika Jayne became instant fan favorites. The viewers could not help being intrigued by her double life as a lawyer’s wife during the day and a club singer at night. Then the line between Erika Girardi and Erika Jayne started to blur and she was accused of being “cold” by Lisa Vanderpump, Dorit Kemsley, and plenty of viewers.
She didn’t wear panties during one episode and it became the focal point of her second season and she went toe to toe with “villain” Dorit. For the most part, the fandom sided with Erika, but her third season was a whole different situation. She snapped at new girl Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave after she accused Erika of having “pretend amnesia,” but it wasn’t the first time the fans saw Erika lose her cool. She unleashed on close friend Eileen Davidson in Hong Kong for no reason. Short story long, Erika definitely lost her universal appeal with the fandom. So what does this mean for her future on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Is she done with the show?
Season 8 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills– i.e. the worst season in the history of the show- finally wrapped up, but is it also the end of Erika’s time as a Real Housewife? It might be.
On May 8, she posted a photo on Instagram of herself on stage with the caption “ERIKA has left the building.” She disabled the comments on the post, which is not something she typically does. Was Erika just marking the end of Season 8? Was she hinting that she’s done being a Beverly Hills Housewife? Was she just trying to stir things up and nab some attention? Unfortunately there are no answers to any of those questions, but there should be in time. After such an awful and boring season, this show definitely has some changes to make, but is Erika leaving one of those changes?
TELL US- WHAT DID YOU THINK OF ERIKA THIS SEASON? DO YOU THINK SHE QUIT THE SHOW? DO YOU WANT ERIKA TO RETURN FOR ANOTHER SEASON OF REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS?
