Erika Girardi is fiercely protective of her police officer son, Tommy, and his privacy. And while he'll likely never make a cameo on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she did drop some more information about her 25-year-old offspring on Tuesday's episode of RHOBH.
"He's a busy man living in his mom's house," she told Lisa Rinna while in Tokyo. (You can check out more of their conversation in the video above.)
When Erika stopped by Megyn Kelly TODAY this week, she dished a bit more about her mysterious baby boy. "Not everybody wants to be on TV — believe it or not," she said during her appearance on Tuesday, noting that his career as a police officer is also a reason why he'll stay off the small screen. "I know that sounds crazy. But, he's in a dangerous line of work and he prefers his anonymity as much as possible and I agree with that."
When The Daily Dish spoke to Erika last February, she opened up a bit more about why she's happy that her son lives with her and her husband, Tom Girardi. "I actually love having my son there. He's free security, OK?" she said, with a laugh. "Free security and he never lets me forget it. But, you know, Tom's very busy and travels all the time. I travel all the time, and my son is super busy. So it's nice. We have a really big house, so it's nice to have him there. And it's nice; listen, let me be very honest, I worry about my boy as I'm sure everyone whose family member is in law enforcement or in the military [is], OK? It's nice to hear him come home. It's nice to hear him come off duty and I can see his car in the driveway or I hear him walk up the steps. To me, I sleep a little better at night just knowing that I know where he is."
And while she loves her kid, there is definitely something you won't see her doing for him anytime soon. Find out what it is, below.
