At this point Lucy might be the most iconic dog on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Sorry Giggy! The majority of the cast has turned on Lisa Vanderpump over this dog. Most of the ladies believe that she sought out to make Dorit Kemsley look bad. Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave also has found herself in the middle of this mess as an alleged accomplice. However, she claims she only plotted because it’s what Lisa wanted.
One cast member not directly involved is Erika Jayne. Erika has had her issues with all three ladies over her four season run. She has always thought LVP was a sniper from the side making everyone do her dirty work. She fought with Dorit over underwear, and Teddi accused her of pretend amnesia. Give her past with that trio, it could be hard to tell whose side Erika is truly on. Luckily, she’s giving us a definitive stance on #PuppyGate!
Erika appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and discussed her opinion of #PuppyGate and LVP! The “Pretty Mess” held nothing back when asked if she thought Lisa manipulated the situation. Erika told guest host Mila Kunis, “In my opinion yes. Yes one hundred percent.”
This is all coming off of a recent episode where Lisa confronted Erika regarding a condolence note. Erika felt she was opening up in a big way, and Lisa found it all to be too cold. In that episode, Erika shared that she knew that would become an issue so she took a snapshot of the note.
We have yet to see concrete proof of LVP’s involvement, but she is widely speculated to be behind the ssetup All of the dog drama led to a SELF IMPOSED isolation from the group. Nobody made her leave. Self. Imposed.
Erika touched upon Lisa’s exit in the interview saying, “I don’t know if she’s quitting the show. I know that she stopped showing up mid season. We were stuck looking at each other like so what’s going on?”

Has Erika spoken to LVP since this all went down? She told Mila, “No! What are we gonna talk about?” They could talk about the fact that if most people decided not to show up for work, they’d be fired. Many believe there’s a double standard when it comes to LVP.
Erika also made it very clear whose side she was on in all of this. While she admits to believing Teddi, she says that overall she’s, “on the truth’s side.” The truth is buried somewhere in the bottom of a bottle of rosé, guarded by a Carlton Gebbia protection spell. We’re never getting it!
For everyone who loves to hate the accountability coach, Erika did not let Teddi off the hook completely. She said, “I think she got cold feet and she got caught. She backed out at the very last minute. But that’s not to give her total [immunity]. I mean listen it takes a lot to wanna do something like that.”
We’re thinking Erika and Teddi’s newfound friendship could hit a rough patch later in the season. Especially given the comments in the trailer where she accuses Teddi and Kyle Richards of being in cahoots. CAHOOTS ABOUT WHAT?
As for Lisa’s reunion status, Erika was short and to the point. She responded with a simple, “I don’t know.” Would it make Lisa a hypocrite for pulling an Adrienne Maloof? Let’s Vanderpump the brakes a little because a lot can change between now and then.
TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE LISA OR TEDDI? DO YOU THINK LISA WILL SHOW UP TO THE REUNION?
