7 Reasons Erika Girardi Is the Heart and Soul of ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’
Among the lash extensions, catfights and savage taglines, there’s a real heart to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and her name is Erika Girardi (or Erika Jayne depending on the time of day). If you have yet to listen to her hit single "XXPEN$IVE," we suggest you do so immediately. Here, seven reasons why Erika Jayne is the unicorn of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
She’s Loyal To A Fault
Girardi is a straight up ride-or-die gal. She’s been an amazing friend to fellow (former) housewife Yolanda Hadid, in sickness and in health. She’s also a real doll when it comes to offering moral support (if she likes you).
She’s Successful In Her Own Right
Yes, she may be an xxpen$ive housewife, but she doesn’t need help from any man. Her alter-ego, Erika Jayne, has landed her on the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Chart, and she’s making that Dancing with the Stars money. Cha-ching!
She Tells It Like It Is
Erika Jayne does not mince words. She is blunt honest to her core, and she doesn't let propriety get in the way of letting people know how she feels.
She Doesn’t Get Caught Up In The Drama (Most Of The Time)
With the exception of the dramatic Hong Kong episode (yikes), Girardi stays out of trouble and doesn’t let other people’s drama affect her. In fact, she wisely refrained from drinking during her entire first season so she could ensure her inhibitions and judgment remained fully intact.
She Values Her Privacy
Girardi keeps things things close to her surgically enhanced chest, which makes her even more fascinating. For instance, she’s vowed never to expose her son on reality TV, and when she went home to visit her family in Atlanta, Georgia, she made sure to schedule family QT sans cameras.
Her Wardrobe is Fierce
Girardi perfectly summed up her style when she called it, “A little cheap, a little rich, and a whole lot of fun.” Who would have thought Chanel resort wear and fishnet bodysuits could coexist? Slay, Erika Jayne. Slay.
She’s 100 Percent Herself, All Day, Every Day
Girardi’s been called a gold digger more times than she can count on her neon acrylic-manicured fingers, but she doesn’t care what people think about her. From her sexualized singing career to her relationship with her 32-years-her-senior husband, this classy gal gives, “None, not one, zero, zero, zero, done.”
