We may only be weeks away from the Season 9 premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which will include cameos of all sorts, but Erika Girardi confirmed that her 26-year-old son, Tommy, still has no plans to ever appear alongside his pop star mama on RHOBH. And her reason is much like the one she's given in the past.
"Probably not," she shared on Tuesday's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Tuesday when asked if he could ever appear on camera, in the clip above. "I don't think so, no. You know, he has a private life; he's a police officer."
Given that we'll likely never see him, Erika did reveal what he looks like: "He looks just like me, but a boy."
Tommy is her son from her first marriage. And you can bet she's always been nothing but proud of his work as a police officer.
"I'm very proud of my son being in law enforcement, but obviously it can get a little nerve racking," she told The Daily Dish about her child in 2016. "It's a dangerous profession. I've known my son was going to be in law enforcement from the time he could walk and talk. That's all he's ever wanted and that's kind of your role as a parent is to honor who your children really are."
Previously, Erika revealed that Tommy lives with her and her current husband, Tom Girardi. It's unclear if they still reside together, but, she didn't mind having her son close to her back in 2017 when she spoke to The Daily Dish.
"I actually love having my son there. He's free security, OK?" she said, with a laugh, at the time. "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 [does], 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."
Tommy's mama Erika will be back on Bravo when RHOBH Season 9 premieres on February 12 at 9/8c. Check out a preview, below.
