The original story continues below. 

Erika Girardi, aka Erika Jayne, took viewers and her pals on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to her former place of employment from many moons ago, the New Jersey go-go club Shakers, during the Season 10 premiere (clip above).

And as it turns out, she's not the only member of the Real Housewives family who has spent some time on the stage of that establishment.

As PEOPLE notes, The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum Danielle Staub wrote about her time at Shakers in her memoir, The Naked Truth: The Real Story Behind the Real Housewife of New Jersey — In Her Own Words.

“I stopped by my old employers, Shakers and Satin Dolls, but I didn’t take the stage,” she wrote. “I’d already had my last dance. I could feel it in my heart that my dancing career was over. Ending it was actually easier than I thought. I imagined I would miss the spotlight, but that wasn’t the case.”

Timed around the Season 10 premiere which aired on April 15, Erika shared some photos proving that she's more than comfortable with her past in her present.

"Well, it’s 30 years later, so it’s many lifetimes. I think it’s interesting when you find out things about people. I’d written about this in my book," Erika told The Daily Dish ahead of the premiere. "But taking them there, and actually smelling and seeing and feeling the place is a whole ‘nother experience and, you know? I’m happy to have done it and I’m happy it’s over and you know, it’s a story. You know? It’s one of those stories that you can tell about your life."
