Upon the premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Erika Jayne aka Erika Girardi is speaking out about what she’s been up to since last season.
Why does Erika appear cold on the show? “It’s not easy. I think that some things should remain private, and they always will. I don’t think that anyone should be a complete and total open book. Let’s just take my mother, for example. I did not want to go home, and I had a long conversation with the producers and I said, ‘Listen, this is a very sensitive part of my story, and I need to trust that you guys will help me out here.’ And they really did. They told the story as is, and I appreciate that.”
Erika was asked if production is respectful of her boundaries. “Well, sure. You can only share what you want to share. At the end of the day, you’re a grown person, and you can say no. You can always quit the show. You either want to do it or you don’t,” she explained to Paper Mag. “If you’re living in the moment and you’re passionate, and you say something, perhaps it’s meant one way but it comes across another; well, you’re going to live with that. And maybe only you knew what you meant, but well, f*ck it. Too late now.
What advice would Erika have for a new Housewife? “Shut up. [Laughing] Shut the f*ck up about things you weren’t there for. Cause you don’t know anybody. I’m sorry, is that rude? Believe me, you’re going to have to comment on stuff that happens in front of you, so just wait until that happens. Cause if you go out on a limb, you’re going be the only one out there, honey. And no one’s coming to save you, girl.”
