Struggles aside, at the end of the day, Erika is enjoying life at the moment. “I’ve had a chance to completely start over and be free from an over 20-year marriage and almost wipe the whole slate clean in a way,” she said. “It’s my life to rebuild, so, in that way, it’s a lot of opportunity, but it’s scary at the same time. So, that’s when I say ‘no,’ it’s scary and I don’t really know what I’m doing. I’m just out here trying to make it happen.”
She’s certainly making it happen this season on RHOBH. While she had an admittedly tough go last year as news broke that she and her now-estranged husband were facing (and continue to face) fraud and embezzlement accusations, Erika revealed on Daily Pop that since all of her co-stars were eager to concern themselves with her business, she’s returning the favor—and then some. “I’m actually overdoing it,” she said, “and I feel good about it.”
At least, that’s how she thinks her fellow cast members see it. Really, Erika said she’s just “coasting” through the season and the eventual reunion. There may be one bump along the way, though: the cast trip to Aspen, Colorado.
