Erika Jayne Still Doesn’t Understand Why She’s Supposed to Be Offended by Lisa Rinna’s Impersonation

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ladies' trip to Provence got off to a glamorous start in Tuesday night's episode. However, not every moment was très magnifique for the group.

Things got a little tense at dinner during the gals' second night in France. When the subject of the Farrahween birthday party came up, Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave asked Erika Girardi if she was offended by Lisa Rinna's behavior toward Kim Richards while donning her Erika Jayne Halloween costume.

Erika said that she wasn't bothered by the moment, but Kyle and Teddi didn't seem to understand why, and they kept pressing her on it. "Ladies, let me be very clear: I'm not annoyed that Lisa Rinna used the Erika Jayne persona to heal her wounds with Kim Richards," Erika said in an interview during the episode. "I am, however, becoming annoyed at how you two will not let it go."

RHOBH fans sided with Erika and Lisa on this one in a poll that took place on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Tuesday night, which didn't surprise Kyle, who appeared as a guest. "No, we were really annoying. Like I said, I think I was still thinking about the whole Rinna and my sister Kim thing. And I did think it was a little weird that she was being a little aggressive and Erika's not like that," Kyle explained. "But I get that didn't offend Erika, and watching that, I see what they mean 100 percent. I'm like, 'Shut up, Kyle and Teddi.'"

Teddi also explained where she was coming from in this moment in her latest blog on Bravotv.com. "I've said before that I feel more comfortable this year, and I suppose that's why I'm speaking up. So when I broached the subject of Rinna using the Erika Jayne persona to call Kim names, I thought I was just being honest and getting a conversation on the table so we could clear the air," she wrote. "Watching back, I would say I'm like a dog with a bone, but that's probably offensive to dogs with bones since they're just trying to enjoy their meal."

Unfortunately, watching the moment back hasn't made anything clearer for Erika. "I didn't understand it then, and I don't understand it now," she said during The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 9 After Show, which you can check out, above. "I thought it was great Lisa dressed up as Erika Jayne for Halloween. It was hilarious. We laughed our asses off. I'm not responsible for anyone's costume or how they act. So it was a little silly."

Kyle also shared her true feelings on Lisa and Kim's reconciliation during her appearance on WWHL. See what she had to say, below.
