“Why should I be fired?” Erika asked host Andy Cohen. “Why are you presuming that I’ve done something? Why aren’t we letting the legal process play out?”
She continued, “You’ve heard one side — and a lot of bulls–t on that side. Give me a chance to defend myself. Watch me. I’m ready for the challenge. Watch me do it.”
Throughout the season, RHOBH fans saw Erika‘s world come crumbling down amid her legal and financial woes with ex-husband Tom Girardi.
Shortly after filing for divorce from the 82-year-old lawyer late last year, Tom was accused of allegedly embezzling funds meant for plane-crash victims to fund his and Erika‘s lavish lifestyle.
Erika and Tom‘s divorce was accused of being a “sham attempt” in order to protect their assets.
Also during the reunion, Erika revealed that appearing on RHOBH is her only source of income and that her lawyers advised her to quit the show.
“And then I said, ‘No, because I have nothing to hide.’ And they said, ‘Well, you know that this s–t can get flipped around on you,’” Erika said. “Everything can be parsed, twisted, turned and yes, possibly turned against you. Whether it is true or not, it almost doesn’t even matter at this point.”
She added, “But I’m not a quitter and I wanted to honor my commitment. I wasn’t going to run away from what’s coming at me.”
Just recently, it was reported that Erika could get a huge salary increase if she returns for season 12 of RHOBH.
Part two of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 reunion will air at 8pm ET on Wednesday (October 20) on Bravo.
