The new girl finally arrived on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6 Episode 3, and she was very willing to show off her inner bad girl.
Is it Erika Girardi or Erika Jane? Erika’s married to a top attorney who is several years her senior, and she calls him Mr. Girardi...but she’s pretty clear that being rich is way better than being poor. After 15 years of marriage, she could care less who calls her a gold digger.
Just to keep things interesting, Erika’s got an alter-ego, Erika Jane who dresses in skin tight see through outfits and apparently has done well on the dance charts. I’m wondering if Mr. Girardi gets to help pick out Erika Jane’s outfits.
Wait. Never mind. I really don’t want to know.
Erika is a friend of Yolanda’s and had this The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills quote to explain their first meeting...
The first time I saw Yolanda she was rocking a side ponytail and pumps. I thought this bitch is fierce.Erika
I never really thought of pumps and ponytails as fierce, but maybe things are different in Beverly Hills.
These days being friends with Yolanda means hanging out in doctor’s offices getting IV vitamin injections together. Erika says she’s not up for anymore needles…unless they're for her Botox injections. No surprise there.
All the other housewives were gossiping about whether Yolanda’s really sick, been misdiagnosed or if it’s all in her head. I wonder why Yolanda would agree to be on the show if she’s spending all of her time getting medical treatments. Goodness knows I wouldn’t want cameras in my face if I were really sick, but maybe that’s just me.
The story of the night was the two Lisas heading off to Ohio to get a mini-horse which should tell you all you need to know about how drama-free this hour truly was.
The funniest part was their freakout over a little bit of rain. Yes ladies, once you leave California, it really does rain. People can drive in it and everything. No one melts, I promise.
I ended up feeling sorry for the poor little horse but my bigger question was, What the heck was Lisa Vanderpump thinking? Did she really hop on a private jet and go across the country to buy an animal without having it checked out by a vet first? I expected her to be smarter than that. Why, I’m not quite sure.
But on to Ken’s 70th birthday party, minus the mini-horse.
Lisa Vanderpump had a hat tree so all the ladies could wear huge hats at her proper tea party luncheon because what else would a man want but a tea party to celebrate his birthday?
Ken and Lisa make sex jokes in front of family and friends about getting 69ed later. I’m guessing Pandora’s blush probably just blended in with the incredible amount of pink at that table.
Taylor Armstrong and Camille Grammar were both at the party, but I’m not really sure why. Camille was barely seen, but Taylor couldn’t keep her mouth shut. She’s moving back to Beverly Hills, and she had an awful lot to say about Yolanda Foster. Maybe she’s angling to get back on the show, but I don’t think it can handle both her lips and Lisa Rinna’s. There has to be a limit, even in Beverly Hills.
In the end, the tea party was far too dull. Kyle Richards went wading in the pool which quickly turned into the entire party jumping in, designer dresses and all. It wasn’t long before Lisa Vanderpump’s thong was showing through her sheer, and very wet, skirt.
Then someone pushed Ken into the pool, and he landed hard in the shallow end. Kyle was worried about his hip replacement. Eileen was concerned about his expensive shoes.
All the ladies, except his wife, surrounded him in the pool to make sure he was okay. We don’t think the birthday boy was missing his little horse one bit.
