Erika Girardi doesn’t hold back when it comes to her “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” colleague Kyle Richards.
On a September 7 episode of the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills After Show,” Girardi spoke about her friendship with Richards and how she handled the feud between her and the rest of the cast in Aspen. During the trip, the women confronted Girardi with her ongoing legal issues, claiming she was not sympathetic enough to the victims of her ex-husband’s alleged crimes. Richards agreed to voice her grievances to Girardi, which she didn’t approve of.
“In my opinion, Kyle could have come over and say, ‘Hey Erika, I want to talk to you’ instead of yelling at me from the sidelines,” Girardi said during the aftershow about the altercation.
Girardi continued: “Anyone who is really interested in what I was doing or how bad it looked or how bad it felt… [Dorit Kemsley knows] to come and grab my hand and say, “Hey, can I talk to you for a minute,” but that’s not what happened.
Viewers can watch brand new episodes of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” every Wednesday night at 8 p.m. Eastern Time on Bravo.
Speaking to Page Six in May 2022, Girardi said she has empathy for the victims of her ex-husband’s alleged crimes. Girardi’s ex-husband and lawyer, Tom Girardi, faces a number of lawsuits alleging he embezzled money from his former clients. A Hulu documentary released in 2021 called “The Housewife and The Hustler” further explored the legal saga.
“Of course I have empathy for them,” Girardi told the outlet at the time. “I had empathy for them then, and I have empathy for them now. And I trust that they will be taken care of.”
Girardi continues: “Listen, I want to be very clear here: I fully cooperated on everything. Despite what is in blogs or tweets or whatever on social media, please understand that I have fully cooperated.”
Even though Girardi may be at odds with Richards, the “Halloween” star admitted during a May 2022 interview with E! News that she is not one hundred percent sure of her future in the franchise.
“I always say, ‘I don’t know,’ and every season I think, ‘Maybe I can do another one,'” explained Richards. “And sometimes I’m just like, ‘How can I keep doing this?’ especially when I’m really upset, like last season when we finished. ”
When Richards concluded this season, she said she was at her wits’ end. “I was like, ‘There’s absolutely no way,'” said Richards. “‘I’m ready. I’m ready. I want to live my life in peace. I can’t handle this.'”
The star added: “I do not know. I just look at it day by day.”
Richards has been a cast member of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” since the first season.
