Erika Girardi's Home Cooking Attempts Aren't Going So Well

"I'm really not very good," The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member admitted about her culinary skills.

From a singer to a shoe designer to a Broadway star, there seems to be very little Erika Girardi can't do. As it turns out, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member admittedly struggles in the kitchen. 

How to Watch

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

In a video recorded for Bustle's "Bustle Booth: At Home" series, Erika, who noted she was self-isolating, got into detail about her cooking and baking attempts while at her Pasadena, California mansion. "I made a yellow cake, like a box cake, with chocolate icing," she said in the clip. "I attempted to make some pasta bolognese. I have this, like, pressure cooker thing, but I need help. I'm really not very good."

However, Erika has found a solution for her cooking woes. "Doing a lot of take-out," she said with a laugh and a shrug in a video that she captioned: "I'm not great in the kitchen."

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times last month, Erika hilariously spoke about her culinary struggles. “I’m never going to be a gourmet cook,” Erika said. “Nobody’s ever going to marry me for my cooking skills.” Still, Erika explained at the time, she has been whipping up "easy things" like turkey sandwiches as well as homemade chicken soup.

In addition to more time than usual spent in the kitchen, Erika's recent time at home with her husband, Tom, has been a unique experience for the couple. “I’m at home. Tom and I spend a lot more time together. He’s obviously on the phone running the firm and doing things. It’s definitely different — scheduling when to go grocery shopping," she told the Los Angeles Times. "It’s just a complete 180 of life.”
