It seems like we're really starting to decipher the "enigma wrapped in a riddle — and cash" that is Erika Girardi this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Erika introduced us to her mom at her birthday party earlier this season, and she went back to her acting roots while getting ready for her appearance on The Young & the Restless with Eileen Davidson.
But there is one part of the RHOBH songstress' life that she still keeps pretty much under wraps: her son, Tommy. We know that he's a police officer in Los Angeles and that he and his mom are incredibly supportive of one another, but we have yet to see him on RHOBH so far. "I am so bummed that we never see him," Andy Cohen said to Erika when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Tuesday night.
Erika explained why her son is so camera shy. "He has a different profession, babe," she said on WWHL. "He's a real police officer in the streets."
Andy then asked what Erika's son thinks of his mother and her life in the spotlight. "He loves his mom," she gushed.
When the WWHL host asked Erika if she and her son are close and how many times a week they speak, she shared a real revelation. "What are you talking about?" Erika said. "He lives with me. That's my baby."
Erika didn't provide any more details about her son and their living arrangement, but just knowing that Tommy could be just down the hall from her when we see her in her gorgeous home on RHOBH seemed to make Andy (and us!) even more "bummed" that we haven't been able to see any of him on the show. Well, we can dare to dream, can't we?
Erika opens up more about her relationship with her son and life as a single mom, below.
