Erika Girardi is no doubt one of the most interesting women to have ever been cast in the entire Real Housewives franchise. Unlike some of the other women on the show, Girardi doesn’t get too caught up in the drama and she seems to just be a totally genuine person…who also happens to have a lot of money and a hugely successful singing career with nine No. 1 hits! She rose to fame under the alter ego she uses to perform, but we want to know more about the woman behind Erika Jayne! The most recent season of RHOBH is currently underway, so let’s take a look at 11 things you might not have known about Erika Girardi:
11. She’s From Atlanta
She was born on July 10th in 1971, but she definitely does not look her age! Erika grew up in Atlanta and was raised by her single mother. She attended North Atlanta High School, but as soon as she graduated, she moved to New York City when she was 18. She got married and had a son shortly after. That marriage didn’t last long and she was eventually divorced. She then moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career as an actress and singer. Her son is now in his mid-twenties and works as a police officer.
