Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Girardi is used to being in the spotlight. Before opening her world to Bravo, she danced on stage as Erika Jayne and pretty much left Girardi in her rear view. Both in a figurative sense And literally.
EJ’s problems with Tom Girardi started a long time ago, but we’ve only heard about them for about three years. Unfortunately, Tom’s dastardly deeds have lasted much longer, and Erika has been drawn into the mess as well. Despite constant scrutiny from fans and co-stars, Erika managed to stay afloat. Now carrying her residency in Las Vegas, she sees the performance as her chance for renewal. People has the overview.
Would you bet everything on blonde?
EJ isn’t going anywhere and her place at RHOBH seems pretty secure. If you love them, season 14 is for you, but if you’re not a fan, you’ll have to choose the team. In Erika’s defense, at least she’s never had to resort to alleged marital issues and a possible lesbian relationship to garner attention.
With her new show in Las Vegas, Erika sees this as an opportunity to turn her frown on its head. She said, “It was a rebirth in so many ways.” While Erika is reborn, estranged husband Tom is fighting for his actual life in court.
“It was full of emotions and fears, but we really prepared as best we could and I think it worked out wonderfully and I’m relieved and happy.” It’s a combination of emotions,” added Erika. She also feels that she “has a lot to prove” and plans to prove it in Sin City. It’s an all-ages show, but EJ is definitely stroking the cat and performing in all sorts of sexy outfits.
It’s the Erika Jayne way…
“That’s Erika Jayne’s personality,” she continued. “I think women my age have been told so many times that you can’t be sexy anymore. And I just think that’s old. Like f-those old rules. I mean, there’s a limit, but I like to go all the way to the line and stick my toe right over it.” Yes, it’s true, even AARP members with a card can be sexy. We’re here, our back hurts, but we’re still cute, okay?
During the opening night, Erika got a little emotional and addressed her audience. “Tonight is about keeping your head up and moving on. I really want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for showing up for me. “You know I love you,” she told the crowd.
“Rather than hold your head up and move on, it’s a new life, it’s a new day, and not only am I holding the door open, you should be too,” shared Erika.
On her vulnerability, she said: “Well, you have to acknowledge what’s happening. It happens. “It was a process and we saw it play out on reality TV. It played out in court this week as I was preparing for this show. So you can escape for a while, but it’s about moving on and keeping your head up,” concluded Erika.
If you’d like to see Erika while in Vegas, her shows will be held at Mandalay Bay’s House of Blues on select weekends through December 16th.
