“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Erika Girardi is an ATL native!
We love that you’re an ATL girl. Tell us about your Southern roots.
I really appreciate my Southern upbringing. The South is a warm, welcoming place. I was just there over the weekend visiting my mom and there’s such a special feel to it. I’m always asking to go to The Varsity ... [and] I spent my high school years in Buckhead [at North Atlanta High School].
Tell us about your onstage persona, Erika Jayne, who’s racked up nine No. 1 singles!
Erika Jayne was created with glitz, glamour, fun, fantasy, love and escape. There’s a little bit of your own personal Erika Jayne inside each one of us. I think the new record, [“XXPEN$IVE”], is probably my best.
Give us a sneak peek of the new season.
I can share that Kyle and I went to Mykonos, and then we were all down in Puerto Vallarta. I just returned home from Atlanta, but the big cast trip I can’t reveal. This season has proven to be a lot of smiles; a lot of laughs; a lot of travel; and I think that all of the viewers are really going to enjoy watching.
