The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has at least one new cast member on the upcoming season and she’s Yolanda Foster’s friend, Erika Jayne. According to a report from In Touch Weekly, the recording artist will join the season 6 cast, but Bravo has yet to confirm if she will become a full-time Housewife or if she will start off the way Brandi Glanville did — as a friend.
Whether she is a full or part-time Housewife, there is no doubt Erika Jayne will bring plenty of personality to the show. The photos on her Instagram and Twitter accounts will give RHOBH fans a hint of the craziness that’s in store when the upcoming season airs.

Erika has a long list of number one songs in Billboard’s club and dance category, including “Party People (Ignite the World)” and “One Hot Pleasure.” Her debut album was released in 2009 and many of her songs have been featured in movies (The Watch, The Deal, The Neighbor) and on the TLC’s former hit reality show Toddlers and Tiaras.
She is married to 76-year-old Thomas Girardi, the founding partner of the L.A. law firm Girardi & Kees. One of the many cases he tried against Pacific Gas & Electric in 1996 was the inspiration for the movie Erin Brockovich starring Julia Roberts.
According to an In Touch insider, Erika is “excited” to join Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and will bring “young energy” to the show.
“Erika is excited to be part of the show. She loves that they’re going to show both sides of her life, the serious side during the day and performing in gay bars at night. She’s married but she loves to party and have fun. It’s going to be a crazy season.”
Bravo has yet to release a finalized cast list or premiere date for RHOBH season 6, but it certainly sounds like there’s a very good chance Erika Jayne will be shaking things up along with returning Housewives Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Eileen Davidson, and Lisa Rinna.
It is unclear if Erika’s friend, Yolanda Foster, will return to the show full-time due to her health issues, but she is expected to make some appearances on the show. With both Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards off the show, there are rumors that fans could also see the return of Camille Grammer or Adrienne Maloof on season 6.
