Eileen Davidson is taking to her blog to discuss this week’s episode of the RHOBH. Eileen clarifies that she didn’t understand how powerful Dorit’s statements about Erika and #pantygate had been when she and Lisa Rinna had their conversation with her over drinks. Davidson said she felt bad for Erika throughout this and that it was blown out of proportion.
“Last year, when Erika came to visit me on the set of Young and the Restless, we had talked about her coming on the show. Now, itâ€™s actually happening.
Our executive producer Mal needed to meet her and discuss her role. Even though â€œgirl next doorâ€ may not be Erika, the possibilities for her Y&R character are endless. I knew Mal and Erika would hit it off and Erika would handle the meeting like a pro. But, the fact that she inspired Mal and he wants to read her is huge. That doesnâ€™t happen every day. Nine number one hits and now sheâ€™s going to be on Young and the Restless? Is there anything Erika canâ€™t do?
To answer my own question, she certainly cannot, and she will not sink Young and the Restless!
When Dorit brought the â€œpantygateâ€ situation up to Lisa R. and me at Tart, she said it was a â€œcrazy thing that happened.â€ Dorit only told us that PK was â€œuncomfortable,â€ which seemed like a reasonable reaction. I think I speak for Lisa R. and myself when I say the vibe we got was light-hearted. We had no idea the things that were being said about Erika. And neither did Erika herself, until Dorit gave her the underwear at the Escape Room.
When I said to Dorit I wanted to be there when she told Erika, I absolutely did not mean it in a sinister way. I meant that I thought it would be an interesting conversation, because I thought Erika, in true Erika fashion, would shut it down.
I feel really bad for Erika through all this. She just wanted to drop the whole thing, but it really has taken on a life of its own.
Whatâ€™s the solution to ease the tension in these kinds of situations? Oh right, lock us all up in a room we canâ€™t escape!
It felt like turning metal into gold would have been easier to do than escape that Alchemy Room. Eventually, we all had to work it out. Overall, I think we all did very well. It was fun, stressful, and really good for us as a group to work together as a team.
Maybe the Escape Room can inspire us all to move past our differences and support each other in a common goal?
Annnnnd then I see a preview for next weekâ€™s episode and I may have to rethink that whole â€œteamworkâ€ thing.”
