It’s no secret that Erika Jayne is dedicated to living a glamorous life as one of the stars of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but there’s still plenty that devoted fans don’t know about the Bravo personality. Now, she’s exclusively spilling all the tea to Us Weekly.
The Georgia native, 50, initially joined the cast of RHOBH in season 6 and fast became a show staple.
“My mindset was survival, like it was the season before,” the “Roller Coaster” songstress exclusively told Us last month of filming season 12, which is currently airing. “The season before was a real fallout [and] this season is really trying to pull yourself together and go on and, you know, it was tough, but ultimately I’ll get there.”
She continued: “You know, I don’t regret much in life. I think sometimes that the way I deliver things sometimes [is] misunderstood. I tried very hard for a long time to be as calm [as possible] and take the high road. And when you are consistently not being heard or just whatever, then … I just start raising my voice. And I think sometimes people misunderstand that.”
