If you thought Erika Jayne was going to have a laid-back, low-key season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after being in the hot seat last year, you might want to think again. After the “Pretty Mess” singer’s Ice Queen facade collapsed amid questions about ex-husband Tom Girardi’s legal troubles, Jayne let her hair down a little more than usual. OK, do that a lot. In the final episodes of “RHOBH,” her co-stars are surprised by the new Erika, who drinks freely and doesn’t hold anything back, a stark contrast to her previous half-decade on the show.
In the season 12 premiere of RHOBH, Jayne declared, “It’s just time to smile a little and have some fun” — though Girardi’s case has yet to be dismissed or solved. Thanks to her premature celebrations, Jayne has already found her way into a new scandal, and this time it’s about Garcelle Beauvais’ teenage son. Viewers have been furious with Jayne’s co-stars Lisa Rinna and Diana Jenkins for other reasons this season, but Jayne is putting them to shame now. As Jayne would say, she’s under a lot of stress.
Erika Jayne snubbed Garcelle Beauvais’ teenage son
In a preview of the upcoming July 6 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Erika Jayne tells Garcelle Beauvais’ 14-year-old son Jax, “Wait, what are you doing here? … **Get out of here before you get in trouble!” At the same event, Jayne also flirted with Jax’s older brother, Oliver. Afterwards, her co-star Crystal Kung Minkoff pulled away a stunned and confused Jax. The incident happened at the birthday party of Beauvais, where there was another confrontation between Sutton Stracke and Diana Jenkins in last week’s episode.
It’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time a real-life housewife has dragged a co-star’s child into the drama. Jackie Goldschneider made an unfortunate analogy with Teresa Giudice’s daughter Gia on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and Jen Shah of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City was caught liking negative tweets about Meredith Marks’ son Brooks. However, Jax’s young age and the racist overtones of Jayne’s outburst make viewers particularly uncomfortable.
Another preview showed Kyle Richards laughing about the incident with her husband Mauricio Umansky and Dorit and PK Kemsley. “I like to see this more relaxed side of [Jayne]’ said Richards. Beauvais, meanwhile, claimed she wasn’t aware of the scene until she saw the episode. Between swearing at Beauvais’ son and throwing her memoir in the trash, it looks like Jayne has a lot to answer for again at the reunion.
