Erika Girardi/Erika Jayne: Let them eat cake

6 hours ago, WireWrap said:

Nahhh, same garbage. I'm flawed but I know you want to be me approach that others, like Bethenny/Teresa G/and other HWs have twritten in the past. I really doubt she will be completely honest and open but YMMV. 

Yes, she just about sums it up with this:

"Without her alter-ego Erika Jayne, Erika Girardi says she’d just be “another rich bitch with a plane”.

Know this, I am so rich that I have my own plane.

Oh, did I mention that I have a plane? Believe me, I do.

Yolanda has her Lyme, but hey, I have a plane.....and an alter ego.

I may be a mess, but I'm pretty.

I think she should have gone with "You don't know what I go through at night....until you read my book".

Re-watching some old RHOC, on the episode where Gretchen does the Pussy Cat Dolls show and Erika's Mickey is the choreographer.

Are they the same guy?!?!

 

Yes. He's been choreographing the Pussycat Dolls for more than a decade. His appearance on OC is on his resume.

And the plane is actually owned by the husband's law firm......

True but Erika still loves to say that they, there are 2 planes I believe, are her husbands/hers leaving out that they are actually owned by the law practice that TG is a senior "partner" in. LOL

The season hasn't even started and I'm already bored by Erika.  Neither she nor her alter ego do a thing for me.  In fact, when I think about the entire BH cast, it's all a little ho-hum for me.  For such an amazing first and second season, the show went flat season 3 and hasn't seemed to recover for my tastes.

I thought Erica was a shot in the arm the show needed.

What could bode better for a genuine and revealing text?

I went over to read the (mostly) glowing (*eye roll*) reviews for ol' Yolanda's book and discovered that Erika -- wait for it --  has a book coming out in early 2018. Most of these HWs spanning the Bravo globe favor the I-am-vacuous-hear-me-roar-don't-you-wish-you-were-me? approach to authoring a book; Erika may be the exception who provides something a bit more revealing and genuine:

LOL. I wonder if she will mention about her book being ghost written by Brian Moylan, or will she take all the credit?

Erika and Cynthia from Atlanta should work on a skin care line together.

I wonder with that kind of hair and make up, that we all couldn't be made to look that beautiful. Her team has it down pat and yes, it does look good.

Not sure. Do people usually give a lot of credit to their ghost writers? Cannot remember any of the others on the show (Kyle, Brandi, LVP) talking much about them but I could have missed it because I am usually behind on most things.

If she is smart, she will play it up. Brian Moylan is a God to many who follow the HW's. I have never bought any book written by any of the HW's, and would not have considered changing the practice for Erika.  But knowing that Brian is involved, I will order it and read it from front to back. And pray that at some point she talks about her skin care regimen.  Her skin is simply incredible.

She is gorgeous and her skin is beautiful, but never underestimate the power of a talented makeup artist, perfect lighting and an excellent photographer. Honestly, they can make miracles happen. Hence, her "glam squad."

She has been shown makeup free on the show and her skin still looks flawless. I think when she is made up, she is just magnifying times a thousand what is a remarkable base line. Even her eyes, which blue eyes makeup free tend to look washed out, stand out when she doesn't wear makeup. Erica, Teresa G and Melissa G all look fantastic without makeup.

There are times when I think she looks better when she is less made up.

All true, but I think she gets the same lighting as the other gals on the show. In several episodes (especially one shot outside) I could almost not take my eyes off of her skin. And it looks better the less makeup she appears to be wearing. At the very least, she appears to have taken extraordinary care of her skin. I would love to know which products she uses.

Brian Moylan writes in a very distinctive way. Won’t it be obvious?

Admittedly I don't know much about Brian Moylan, but if he's a good ghostwriter and/or editor, he'll know how to put his own "voice" aside and make it sound like the "voice" of the person on whose behalf he's writing/editing.

Non sequitur but every time I see Erika's talking heads I think that she'd be a great "spokesmodel" for Too Faced cosmetics. Her peach look is similar to their very popular peach palette. Plus, the whole Erika Girardi/Erika Jayne thing would be a nice play on the brand name (and isn't her tag line about  not being two faced?). Plus I think she fits their vibe -- not too serious but into being glam. And their color palettes would really work for her.

Anyway. If this ever happens I demand a cut of the check! ;)

Welp, Check Please!

Erika Jayne for Too Faced.

I, Tina: My Life Story by Tina Turner with Kurt Loder is one of the few that I can think of because Kurt Loder was and is a well respected music writer and critic.

I agree, last season was very dull.  The only way this can recover is to bring back some of the cast from the earlier seasons.  Just adding someone new does nothing for this group.  Erika and Dorit did not help breathe life into this tired cast.

What is the source?  I don't believe that could possibly be true!   Money can buy many things so maybe.

Oh man, I know that Larry David landed some duds on this week's SNL, but there was an *Erika Jayne parody* on this week. Given that so many SNL folks are Bravo fans, I'm a little not surprised, but it's pretty dead on ;)

I do think it's meant to be over the top and silly. I love Too Faced and ALL of their videos and products have the kind of vibe shown in that video, IMO. It's why I sort of predicted and am totally unsurprised that she's a spokesperson for them. Her vibe fits theirs. (And it's the side of her I like--if she could just say funny and self effacing, and ditch the butthurt--I'd probably think she was one of the best on the show.)

Contrast that with Chanel, an uber-glamorous brand that still manages to choose terrible spokesmodels like dirty Brad Pitt and earnest-while-wrapped-in-toilet-paper Kristen Stewart. Unintentionally ridiculous and IMO a clash with the brand.

Back in the heydey of pro wrestling, many of the major stars wrote autobiographies and their ghost writers were openly credited (in big letters the book would say something like BY THE ROCK and then small letters would say "with -------'. I think Luann from NY did the same thing with her book.
