Erika Girardi Shares Why She Wanted Her Mom To Appear On RHOBH

On this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, we saw a new side of Erika Girardi as she traveled to her home state of Georgia and had an emotional moment with her mother. Erika’s mother admitted she was too hard on her as a child and viewers could understand for the first time why Erika may come off “cold.” In a new interview, Girardi is explaining why this was an important moment for her to share this season.

“Well I think that it was important for people to see just a little more human side and my roots of where I came from. And I asked my mother if she would do this for me and she said yes,” Erika told The Daily Dish. “And we have a couple of touching moments and a couple of very telling moments, which I wasn’t really prepared for.”

Showing this side of herself wasn’t easy for Erika at all, she reveals. “I was very hesitant. I didn’t want to do it, but I ended up doing it,” she said. “And I think a lot of people will be able to relate to my mother’s and I’s relationship.”
