Erika Jayne bore the brunt of Lisa Vanderpump's frustrations during the most recent Real Housewives of Beverly Hills episode. The Sur owner criticized her over a sympathy note that she wrote in the aftermath of her brother Mark's passing, which she felt was "a little distant." LVP's feedback caused Erika to go ice cold on her, leading to quite the awkward confrontation during a group outing. Read on for all the details.
Lisa initially talked to Kyle Richards about Erika's gesture during the cast trip to The Bahamas.
"I like Erika, however, she sent me like a few lines," Lisa told Kyle. "Like on a card. That really hurt me."
Lisa brought that back up to Erika's face while the RHOBH ladies were dining together. "I wish that you called me," LVP said while wiping tears from her eyes.
Erika shot back with "But I thought the best way to do that was to write." It's a move that Lisa felt was "a little distant."
The "Pretty Mess" singer then said in her confessional that she didn't feel comfortable calling Lisa after her brother passed and wrote a note instead. "I just wanted her to know, 'Hey. Thinking of you.'"
"And I've never known of anyone to react this way," Erika continued. "You're condolence note wasn't good enough. Are you f***ing kidding me?"
"I'm sorry if you didn't think that was enough for you," Erika said to LVP. She then became ice cold after the 58-year-old tried to justify herself.
Lisa Rinna played devil's advocate about the situation in her own confessional. "To criticize someone for sending a sympathy card, it's one of the weirdest things I've heard but you know what? Grief is a process that nobody teaches you how to go through."
"If you thought I was cold before, hell has frozen over," Erika then exclaimed in her confessional.
