As a new cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Erika Girardi is going to have to learn how to deal with some major drama in the 90210. But perhaps Erika’s mother can predict the future because she named her daughter after Erica Kane, the iconic All My Children character immortalized by Susan Lucci, which the RHOBH rookie revealed during Tuesday night’s Watch What Happens Live After Show.
After Erika’s fellow guest Cheyenne Jackson told a caller that he considers himself more of an Erika Jayne than an Erika Girardi, Andy Cohen playfully said that he thought he was “more of an Erica Kane.” “I love me some Erica Kane,” Erika said in response. “My namesake.”
Andy, who is a major soap opera fan, looked ecstatic about this fun fact and gave Erika a big high five. “I love you even more,” he said.
All My Children wasn’t the only TV show Erika, Cheyenne, and Andy dished about on WWHL Tuesday night. Find out which ‘Wife Cheyenne thinks would be perfect to play the Countess on American Horror Story: Hotel in the clip, below.
