During the latest season of RHOBH, Erika was often questioned about the legal troubles she and her husband were facing. In one episode, she hit back at the accusations that her divorce filings were a just a cover-up to keep her out of hot water. “Divorce is very painful and then having it called a sham is even more painful,” she said in a confessional. “It took a lot of courage to leave and it took two seconds for some assh*** to say it was a sham and [for] everybody to believe it.”
