Erika "Jayne" Girardi was taken back by the shocking cast drama during her trip to Dubai with the women of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
During the vacation, Girardi and the women participated in a number of exciting activities, including a shopping extravaganza and a dinner party on a yacht, but through it all, tensions were high due to the ongoing drama between Lisa Vanderpump and Lisa Rinna.
"So much has happened in the short amount of time that we’ve been here that it's somewhat overwhelming," Girardi wrote to fans of her Bravo blog last week. "I'm not talking about the time change, the food, or the hotel… I'm talking about the human experience: Emotions are overflowing and tensions are high.
"Being new to this group, obviously I'm last in the social pecking order," Girardi continued. "I’ve missed a lot of back-story and private conversations, so when they are brought up in little pieces I'm sometimes struggling to put things together. But one thing is clear: Lisa Rinna feels as though she has taken the fall for the Munchausen/Lyme conspiracy about Yolanda."
"This is where things get tricky. Who do you believe? Do you go with what you see and hear? Or do you go with your gut?" she asked. "Is it possible these women came up with a plan in an attempt to ruin Yolanda's integrity? Is Lisa Vanderpump lying like Lisa Rinna says she is? Was Kyle part of these conversations, and is she OK with her and Lisa Vanderpump's alleged involvement?"
As for whether or not Girardi will return for a potential season seven, it's unclear if she brought enough to the group.
“Erika is turning out to be a bit of a dud,” a source told Radar Online during production. “She is very quiet, and just seems to agree with what anyone is saying. In fact, Erika seems to be going out of her way to not be controversial. Erika should realize that this is a reality show!”
