There’s a new girl in town and she is not one to be messed with! Erika Girardi made her debut on the Dec. 15 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and jaws may have dropped over a few of her comments!
She is married to high-powered Los Angeles attorney Tom Girardi, 76, whom she met while working as a cocktail waitress.
“Going from nothing to everything is pretty amazing,” Erika said in her confessional. “I was broke and I was a cocktail waitress and Mr. Girardi was my customer for a year.”
The blonde bombshell, 44, has since been married to her hubby for 15 and half years and doesn’t have one care in the world about what people say behind her back.
“Being broke sucks and being rich is a lot better!” she admitted with a laugh. And don’t let the mansion fool you; Erika works for that money! She is a singer/dancer/performer with eight number 1 hits on the Billboard Dance Club charts who entertains under her alto-ego “Erika Jayne.”
The fierce and feisty newbie also wants to make another thing perfectly clear: she loves looking good. Erika said, “I have all the access to the best. What am I going to look like? A hag?! Of course I look good.”
On the other side of the world, Kyle Richards and her family enjoyed their uber-luxurious vacation in Tuscany, Italy but members of her family separated as some flew to London for her niece Nicky Hilton’s wedding while others went home.
“Obviously, I don’t feel wonderful about the situation,” Kyle said. “Regardless of any family issues that may be going on, I’m not going to miss my niece’s wedding.”
Kyle has had a lot of family drama this year. Her sister, Kim Richards, was arrested in April for being drunk and disorderly. She was then picked up for shoplifting in August, and then finally checked herself into rehab.
Kyle discussed her sister’s circumstances with Eileen Davidson and Lisa Rinna over lunch. “Kyle, I have to ask you, what the hell is going on with your sister?” asked Eileen.
“I’m sure you heard; she’s in rehab. She went and got the help that she needs. I don’t know what her story is right now,” replied Kyle.
Not an ideal situation at all.
