Erika Girardi was born gorgeous. But, if she had a beauty motto, it might go something like this: If it isn't broke, why not make it, well, even less broke?
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills entertainer has always been open about the lengths she goes to look every bit as glam as she does right now. And if her song "It's XXpen$ive to Be Me" didn't tip you off to the fact that Erika's not opposed to spending some major cash to get what she wants, these new revelations on her grooming regime just might.
First, Erika's not afraid to go under the knife to tweak her features. In a March 20 appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Erika confirmed that she'd had a nose job done. The revelation came after Andy showed Erika a 2010 photo of herself with Kyle Richards. Take a peek:
When she saw the photo, Erika said: "I do remember [this]. That was some bad hair and makeup!" When Andy remarked that the photo doesn't even look like the present-day Erika, the entertainer replied: "It was the same face, just a different nose." She also told her fellow Clubhouse guest RuPaul that she'd had a nose job at 41.
Since then, The Pretty Mess author has added everything from a glam squad to three closets packed with high fashion to her routine — and it costs her. When appearing on The Wendy Williams Show on March 20, the singer revealed that she sometimes spends up to $40,000 a month on looking fierce. (That's right: we said per month.)
"If you want to look good it’s hair, it’s makeup, it’s wardrobe, and then those people that help facilitate that. They’re not cheap," Erika said. So, that's why she always looks like a million bucks.
