Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills’ Erika Jayne Addresses Claims That She Goes ‘Full Super-Villain’ In Season 12

As we know all too well at this point, reality TV often means stars will be cast or edited into certain roles for entertainment. The most common of which is the villain or, to borrow a wrestling term, the heel. Over her last six years on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Erika Jayne has had her fair share of blowups but, largely, she’s tried to maneuver away from such definitive edits by remaining cold, aloof and unbothered with the drama on the show. Yet Season 12 is speculated amongst fans to be a bit different, as Erika Jayne apparently goes into “full super-villain” mode – and the reality star is addressing those claims upfront.

The insinuations came about initially when The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Season 12 trailer dropped online in April. In it, Erika Jayne is seen getting into a heated argument with a co-star over them siding with the alleged victims of her ex-husband’s embezzlement schemes. She is also heard saying that she cares only about herself in the situation. However, the 50-year-old told Entertainment Tonight that she’s not being a villain, just a champion for herself, saying:

It’s not ‘full super-villain.’ I’m leaning into myself. I’m leaning into full protecting Erika mode, full taking care of Erika. Who else is going to do this if I don’t? And if that ruffles a few feathers, if that looks unladylike, if that offends your, I don’t know, manners, then so be it. No one’s living this life but me. No one is coming to help me but me. So if I have to roll up my sleeves and get a little dirty, you can trust and believe I’m going to do that.
