Watch Erika Girardi Meet Erica Kane

If you think that Erika Girardi has what it takes to handle all the drama on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it just might be because of her name. Erika, of course, is named after All My Children icon, Erica Kane, as immortalized by the one and only Susan Lucci. In fact, she very famously confessed on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in 2016 that “I love me some Erica Kane. My namesake.”

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Peacock and the Bravo App.

We can only imagine her excitement, then, when the two ladies finally came face-to-face (we know, we'd be stoked) during an appearance on the daytime talk show, Home & Family, in an episode airing Monday on Hallmark channel. "I'm having such a meltdown," Erika told Susan on the show. "You're like my ultimate. And my mom is having a meltdown, too."

Luckily for you we have the exclusive first look at that fierce, fateful encounter for you to watch over and over again.

Don't forget to check out Erika every Tuesday on RHOBH at 9/8c. Check out a preview of Erika flexing her acting muscle just like her idol, below.
