So are we calling her Erika Girardi or Erika Jayne? I generally go with Jayne, because I can spell it without looking. Seems like a good enough reason to me. Cheyenne Jackson is the other guest. I typically ignore the other guest in recaps because recapping WWHL is like transcribing thirty minutes of dialogue and it is such a relief to only transcribe part of it. Andy has already said #PatThePuss a million times and it is the drinking phrase.
Erika says she has had a great time doing RHOBH and her husband is very supportive and she really has no complaints. Andy remarks, “You don’t hate me yet!” and she says “Not yet.” Give it time dear Erika. Talk to me after the reunion, although you will probably get a pass from Andy but not Pinky.
Andy shows the clip of David’s response to being married to a Toothless, Boobless, Brainless Wonder. Erika says that they are both very special to her. She is going to refrain from commenting. She has known them for nine years.
Andy brings up Yo’s new condo. That will probably be my next post. There is a lot going on with Yolanda in the past 24 hours and I plan to tell you all about it. Erika say that Yo’s fridge is tiny in the new place and she will have to get a new one. #RichPeopleProblems
Montage of Erica Jayne. I should probably confess I have missed a couple of episodes of RHOBH while on my mental health break from blogging. I will get caught up soon. I am so far behind! Thank God for Xanadude and Ben C filling in for me. It was such a great help. I hope they continue to recap while I am back. I have so much to cover!
Game: Andy asks Erika Jayne, can you explain?
Why two private planes? Because one is small and one is big!
What does your 23 year old son think of Erika Jayne? He loves her like he loves both of them. (that’s what she said!
Does your husband ever get mistaken for your father? (oh Andrew!) When I was in my twenties, yes. Now that I am in my 40s, no.
They show a clip of next week’s episode where Bethenny insults the fuck out of Erika and tells her that her videos have low production value and she thinks they are crap. Really Bethenny? Do you even know this woman?
Erika says that she was overwhelmed by Bethenny. She thought they were going to dinner. Oh Erika, dear. “Dinner” is code for “Fight Club” on the housewives franchises. You never get to have a pleasant meal with these bitches. Andy asks if she had ever watched RHONY. She says she had never watched a single episode of any of the franchises until after she got the job. I believe her for some reason. She is a very busy woman.
Andy asks about the Lyme Disease drama. She says that she thinks everyone has now seen what is really going and has accepted the fact that she has Lyme Disease. Well, not so much Erika, but you are a dear friend.
Andy asks Cheyenne about working with Lady Gaga on AHS: Hotel. He recounts their first nude scene where he was laying across her lap naked and she was sort of massaging his butt with her long fingernails and all he could think is, “This is my job, Lady Gaga is massaging my butt!” And he was thrilled. Erika offers jokingly to massage his butt later. Are only two episodes left! It’s back tomorrow night!
A caller asks if she met Brandi or Kim. She says she met Kim twice and Brandi once and they were both very nice.
How did you feel about the digs Lisa Vanderpump gave you when you first met her? I’m not surprised. I mean it is what it is. But you know people have been, you know, kind of saying this to me for sixteen years, I’m sure you are referring to my husband, ( Andy says, yeah) so it is kind of par for the course.
Does it bother you? It did when I was younger, but not now. You get used to it after awhile.
Where were you a cocktail waitress? Chasen’s … Andy freaks out. She says not the original one, the revamped one.
What work have you had done? She says the same as everyone else on the show. Botox, fillers, boob, nose was done at 41. Andy asks how many years ago that was. She says three. Oh Andrew.
Caller asks if Pinky is intimidated because of the new “Queen of the Gays” in town? ( I’d like to personally thank this gay male caller for his use of the term, “the gays” take that PC police! ) She asks if he is calling her the Queen of the Gays and he said yes, she is! She thanks him and says that Pinky is not intimidated at all.
Same caller asked what she thought of Bethenny? She says Bethenny is cool. It is what it is.
Callers are IN LOVE with Erika. Andy can’t stop gawking at Erika’s jewelry which is a stunning Cartier necklace and a huge diamond bangle. Andy asks why she doesn’t wear a wedding ring. She says her husband doesn’t wear one, she says he will buy her anything she wants but don’t ever ask him to wear a wedding band. That is interesting! So she wears hers sometimes and sometimes she doesn’t. She doesn’t seem to be wearing any rings today.
Andy asks other than Yo which housewives she likes. She says she likes them all and lists Eileen first, then Rinna who she says is hilarious (I agree) and then she says you can’t help but like Pinky for her “over the top fabulousness, but not as fabulous as me! just kidding.” I don’t think she was kidding and I also think she is correct. Erika is pretty fabulous and I am really enjoying her on WWHL.
Andy makes Erika teach Cheyenne how to pat the puss. It’s hilarious and Erika takes the lesson very seriously.
The poll was which Erika do you like better? Girardi won by 85% I must say, I really like her too.
