Erika Jayne has a very important engagement before she leaves on her Pretty Mess tour in October. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills performer will appear as a featured speaker at TEDxPasadena near her home in Southern California on September 25. She will join 12 other speakers to give a talk inspired by this year's theme: "TRANSFORM."
From working as a waitress at a diner to becoming a certified club diva goddess, Erika knows a thing or two about transformation, which she's neatly detailed in her bestselling memoir Pretty Mess. The TED audience will receive signed copies of the book at the event.
Among the speakers at TEDxPasadena are an Olympic medalist, a civil rights activist, a NASA engineer, and a doctor specializing in robotic repair. Tickets to the event included the opportunity to sponsor local Pasadena girls between the ages of 13-18 to attend all the talks.
