On The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills episode “Crying Shame,” the ladies are still arguing over what Dorit Kemsley said about Lisa Vanderpump (being jealous) and how each of them reacted to it. It’s new wife Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave who’s stirring the pot this week. She reminds Erika Girardi that she said she would be pissed if someone said that about her. In front of all the ladies, Teddi says Erika is “pretending to have amnesia right now.” Erika snaps, “Don’t ever say I’m pretending because I’m not. I’m telling you the truth because I don’t remember saying that. Don’t ever say that again. Don’t ever ever do that to me, you don’t want that.” Awkward silence follows.
On a lighter note, later in the episode, Erika strikes a pose for her book cover. Her first memoir, Pretty Mess, is written by Erika’s alter-ego, singer/provocative performer Erika Jayne. According to the book blurb, Pretty Mess “is her opportunity to dig deep and tell her many-layered, unique, and inspiring life story.” Pretty Mess will be released March 20 by Gallery Books (see link above). The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Tuesdays at 9pm on Bravo.
