Erika Girardi/Erika Jayne: Let them eat cake

32 minutes ago, BBHN said:

Publicized where? I can imagine them doing it for an actual product, but not things like a song or an actor's likeness or a movie plot.

She looked really good at the Emmys and in the Y&R pic (Eileen too). She really looks better when toned down.

I think Mikey was hog-tied on Emmy Day.

I agree. She's got one of the best complexions across the RHs universe (sorry Heather, sorry Moaner). Erika could be an excellent rep for whatever products she uses. And, no, I don't think it's all photoshop.

RE: SNL Product Placement:

From the second link: First, the “Escorts” threw in a brief product placement, as Leslie Jones indicated she’d have to wear Lindsey Vonn Oakley sunglasses during her sexual encounter with her client (played by Mikey Day). It’s just one mention, and we see her wearing sunglasses. One of those product placements that could merely be the joke of the sight gag and the random celebrity namedrop, but it also works as a quick advertisement for the product.

Nothing about songs though. It seems the product placement is relegated to...actual hard products people buy, like consumables and whatnot. Not exactly a smoking gun.

I read an article up on a website. This is something they are doing 6 times a year with the BIG companies i.e. Coca Cola. They want to tie their product into a sketch that could possibly go viral or trend the next day - giving them a different type of advertising via Social Media - Twitter/Snapchat/Youtube. So in the SNL Erika Jayne sketch - if they had held up soda cans with the logo on display or were on the table with the camera picking up the logo, Coca Cola is paying big bucks to advertise in the skit.

SNL pays the songwiter.  It is actually collected by the performing rights organization who passes the royalties on to the songwriter.

Free advertising and gets paid for the song play. Doesn't get better than that. 

Actually it does...repeats receive royalty checks.

It is possible to waive your royalties. People most often do it for charity purposes, but Erika could have done it for SNL if she wanted to. Erika isn't the songwiter. I don't think she's written any of her songs. Lots of singers don't write their own songs.

Nope. As per the article:

in a breach of contract, negligent misrepresentation and fraud suit against Ja Rule, Billy McFarland and Fyre Media.

Unless she is a part owner of Fyre Media, which I don't think she is, she wouldn't be sued.

Erika and the rest waive royalties when their songs are featured on the show/WWHL.  In some cases some singers and song writers pay Bravo a percentage of what the songs yield.

So does Ritz pay, even though Kenan was kind of critical of the crackers?  He seemed to be complaining that they were only dime-sized.

Subway on Community is probably the best example of a slightly negative depiction of product placement. Subway had a multiple episode story arc where Subway is the antagonist pitted against the main cast. I think the brand needs to let writers have a decent amount of latitude because otherwise you'll end up with the stilted Subway mess on Hawaii 5-0. Kenan complained that he wanted the crackers in a larger size, not that there was something fundamentally wrong with them. And Mad Men taught me that when you can't get clearances, they try to substitute with an alternative brand or make up their own. If Nabisco Ritz had big problems with the joke they wouldn't have let SNL say or show the name or brand.

It's funny that we're talking about product placement because we've speculated for at least the last 2 or so years that Bravo has a deal with Tito's vodka. Except for events thrown by LVP and Bethenny, there is usually Tito's is featured prominently at the bar. And it's across the network. You'll see it on housewives shows, Shahs, Southern Charm, and I'm sure there are others that I'm forgetting.

So tonight was the finale of DWTS.  Erika Jane was barely noticeable.  Not even an individual dance on a two and half hour show.  She and Chris Kattan got nothing.  Even Charo and Mr. T got something.  Add to that Chris Kattan was very critical of the show after his boot.

Chris actually danced a little tonight. He did his Roxbury guy thing.  All Erika did was sit on a unicorn.

That was my first thought and it would also be the reason that they aren't disclosing the nature of the tear (if it was a rotator cuff injury they'd have just said so). 

The month delay could be explained by a slow leak that took some time to diagnose.

For all the criticism Erika gets about being fake, she's the only one of the 3 who looks remotely chill. Beth and Kyle both look posed and trying hard to strike a sultry image whereas Erika looks relaxed and beautiful.

She's still smart enough to have her photo taken while standing next to plain people.

Erika's top is what I would frame and hang on my wall. :)

Kyle must be using Tru Renewal hair products

Bethenny's pants looked much better on the show than in this pic.

I would not be surprised to learn it had something to do with her implants.  Otherwise why not mention the "tear?"  Being injured while doing an athletic venture is nothing to be ashamed of, quiet the opposite.  Athletes tear muscles frequently.

I hope so because the pants look almost as bad as she does.

Isn't Tru Renewal a Ramona Singer (RHONY) company/product?

I thought her boobs looked bigger. She's happily hanging with the HW A team too so she probably found it easy to forgive and befriend both Kyle and the B.

Oooooh gawd! There was a joke about Erika and Tom in season 3 episode 10 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. There was a meeting of the NFL owners and one of the owners was playing his mistress' terrible music video about how much money it costs to keep her.

Actually there was another Erika joke where Jane Krakowski's character is making an audition music video for Real Housewives of New York, which consisted of her dressed like Erika Jane writhing around on the floor saying "this is where the music would be playing."
