Erika Girardi returned to our TV-screens Tuesday night on the premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. While she has always remained an enigma, she is opening up about her experience on the show this year in a new interview.
“I never thought I’d ever be on a reality TV show ever, so the fact I’m on one, back for three seasons, and having a good time is amazing,” Erika says. When asked what fans can expect from the new season, she says it will be all about “lifestyle.”
She continued, “We travel a lot this year — Las Vegas, New York, Tokyo, Berlin. There’s a lot of lifestyle this year,” she says, adding that there will be plenty of drama to keep viewers interested. “What will be most interesting is a shift in friendships. Obviously, there’s a new housewife, [which is] great for the viewers and interesting.”
How does Erika feel about the newest Housewife, Teddi Mellencamp? “That’s for you guys and the audience to decide,” Erika tells Yahoo Entertainment. “I don’t want to give away too much. I think she’s got an interesting backstory and has something to say. We’ll see what everyone thinks.”
Girardi admits she is over pantygate and continues, “I think that it’s obvious by the trailer that Dorit and I have moved on from last year, which is something that I said [I wanted to do] at the final party last season.‘Let’s try, let’s go slow, let’s see what happens.’ It’s something we managed to do, so that’s different. It’s an evolution. The longer you’re on Housewives, the deeper your connections with the women become. You get to know everyone better each year and relationships become much more complex, and there are subtleties, and there are layers, and often that can create conflicts.”
