Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Girardi hasn’t always lived such a glamours life. Before she could transform into the fabulous Erika Jayne, she is dishing about her life before she was a popstar.
“Some of my first jobs were in the entertainment industry, doing plays and commercials as a kid,” Erika told Glamour, adding that she even worked in a mall.
“I had a job at the mall… I wasn’t very good,” she said, noting that “the worst day was every day because it was long and kind of boring” but found the perfect mantra to get through it: “Smile and make it work.”
Erika explained that she had more success in the next chapter of her life as a cocktail waitress. “It was an easier clientele to chat up! People [were] having fun, not bitches trying on clothes that do not look good on them,” she shared, noting that this is where she connected with her husband Tom Girardi.
“Tom was a customer of mine for a year before we ever went out, and the great part about that was I got to know Tom on so many different levels. The way he treated not only myself and the wait staff but his friends, his children, referring attorneysâ€¦ So when we started dating, there really was no getting to know one another, because we already knew one another. And we were friends!”
