S11.E05: The Divided States Of Erika

That’s what some of the Uber-rich pay for an apartment in New York. For the extremely wealthy that is not out of line at all. 

Her settlement must have been huge and invested wisely the income could be enough to pay those bills.

The super wealthy are different than us. That’s why we watch the Housewives. Not for lectures and teachable moments.

IF She is worth 2million which i just googled that's still a awful lot of money to be spending per year and there is no way she can keep that up... Granted I am sure her ex husband pays child support and all but still

The car shopping was a lot of fun and the reason why most of us watch the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. That and the over the top elegant Parisian party shows that Sutton is really bring it this season.

Add in a good take down of that sleeve Erika and we might have a great season for once.

I feel that is a bit low, no? I don't think $2 million can buy her that lifestyle in BH.

But how long was the trip?  It didn't seem that long. You don't just suddenly drop 5 pounds unless you are pounding down laxatives and diuretics or you ran a marathon during a vacation, so more than likely her lack of eating started before the trip.  Weight loss and gain doesn't happen overnight.

Since she has eating disorders, if Sutton (which was the subtext of her stress) triggered her that much, I hope she seeks therapy.  

She's a business owner, a mom, now on this show.  That has to be incredibly stressful, so if she's not eating b/c of stress triggers, this i not a good thing.

It does here! I was 4 pounds heavier last night than I am right now. And I will probably be 2 pounds heavier than that if I try the damn fool scale again in an hour, and 3 pounds lighter if I weigh myself at 6 pm. You can fluctuate all day long. It's stupid and annoying and now I just judge myself by how my clothes fit.

My point is you can drop per the scale, but more than likely you were burning those calories before the weight dropped.  If you lost 4 pounds in one day, that means you burned 14,000 calories in one day or you lost water weight only because you exercised and lost that weight. Or you didn't drink any water that day.  

In addition, many health sites indicate you can't lose 5 pounds in a day when you are FASTING.  Purposefully not eating.

Losing weight s simply reducing your calorie intake and it doesn't happen overnight.  Fluctuating weight loss is water weight and from sodium intake.

I'd guess that it's a faulty scale and/or standard daily fluctuations (because there's no way I burned that many calories. And other than walking on a treadmill, I don't do any kind of workout). It's 5 pounds--how does Crystal really know she lost it for any particular reason or that it means anything at all?  

ETA: That said, I am still annoyed that this happens to me!

It's more than likely just water weight and sodium.

For example, hockey players can lose 5-8 pounds in a game.  But that's water loss.

My problem with the Crystal discussion is that it seemed to be quite purposeful.  It was "Sutton you did this to me."  To the point where Kathy turns over to Sutton and makes the joke.  And then Sutton laughs and said she's the new weight loss program until she realizes exactly what was going on --  Crystal wanted to show her fragility to essentially blame stress, i.e,. Sutton for not eating.

Meanwhile, she tells everyone she's conquered her eating disorder.

I get wanting people to know that she *had* an eating disorder and that's great she was open and honest about it -- but the conversation about it didn't seem to be organic.   Was anyone questioning her not eating on the trip?  Did she not eat at all?   No one seemed at all concerned other than wondering why she missed dinner.  Or is she saying missing dinner that one night b/c of Sutton = 5 pound weight loss? Did anyone notice the 5 pound weight loss?  No one commented on it.  So she brought up that why?  Was she giving them warning not to compliment her on weight loss if she loses more than 5 pounds?

On one hand she is assuring everyone she's conquered her eating disorder, but on the other hand she appeared to be weaponizing her not eating and losing 5 pounds on someone that stressed her out.   

She's got a family, a business to run.  Life is hard.  People w/o eating disorders have lost 5 pounds b/c of stressful situations where they didn't eat.  But it's not a permanent thing and they gain it back.

If Sutton stressed you out that bad, how are you going to deal with life in general?   When her kids become teenagers, they are going to be like Sutton on steroids to her.

Ha, probably thinking that would help them stay in their weight class!

That's why people abuse diuretics and laxatives -- to drop the temporary weight.  That's why all those "cleanses" are promoted.  It's all going to come back b/c it's just water weight!

Right! 

As a single woman, why do you need that big of a house?  I'd get a swanky apartment if I wasn't ready to buy.

Boring episode.  I thought Erika was dressed in her "Mrs. Tom Girardi" costume for Sutton's party!  Also, if we're gonna have to see the same old Kyle's old house with different furniture.... This does not pass the house porn test.  Neither does Rinna's back yard. What's up with that? I don't think Rinna's EVER HAD AN INDOOR PARTY????

You know, with over the top flowers, the good china, the chef, the bar, the candles, the FIREWORKS!!!

 

 

Maybe the Hamlins are still battling that rat problem from a couple of seasons ago 😂

I thought Rinna being overrun with rats in her own home was just so...symbolic, on some level.

Kyle is straight out of her mind, and I find for two years in a row I'm loving Dorit. Her thing about Bocce ball last week cracked me up, and her outfit at the Paris party was super cute. I did think it was interesting to here PK scold her for her bad manners at the party, but like seriously I wouldn't have grinned through dinner after Kyle pulled that power play either. On the other hand when it comes to her talking too much Kyle isn't wrong, but the solution isn't to interrupt her with your own inane thoughts. I think Kyle is super annoyed that the rest of the cast hasn't started treating her like the new LVP. 

I have never liked Kyle.  She’s always been a try-hard, I remember her going on every A&E or E! “documentary” to talk about Paris Hilton, back when people cared about Paris.  Then she came in this show and seemed kind of self-deprecating, talking about her Target clothes.  She always bowed down to Vanderpump, kissed her ass.

Now Mauricio is a top agent, making a lot of money, Kyle thinks she’s the big cheese of the group.  You can tell she’s very pleased with herself, always laughing at her own stupid jokes, trying to show off her new nose, always making sure the camera sees that she’s lost weight.  She is still a try-hard, but now she wants everyone to kiss HER ass.  But no one actually will.

OMG, the last house is gorgeous.

I noticed in the scene with Dorit, she's picking couches based on her animal print wardrobe and wondered what the fuck happened to her decorating taste level (I've always hated her clothing taste).  Now I know why her first house was so beautiful.

Yes.  That is what it is for.  Pretty common because a lot of water lines are controlled by electricity so it is one way to fight a fire near your property when the power is out.

Her oldest kid is a girl. And everything I have seen indicates they were 17, 15, and 12 when she filmed the first season.  Not to mention I am assuming if she is 18 now there is a good chance she is still dependent on him for financial support and might choose to go along with his wishes.

Sutton is always so aghast when people ask or talk about how much things cost but she just so gauchely dropped to Kyle and Kathy that she spent $35k on that party. 

Well, Sutton's a phony and a hypocrite, so it's on brand for her. (Yeah yeah, I know they all are). Glad that she's behaving now that she feels she did enough in Tahoe to merit keeping her diamond this time.

Rinna's come to too many events cloning outfits to be a coincidence at this point. I'm just surprised Kyle agreed to go along with it this time.

Even when Kyle's in the wrong, I'll never side with Door-it in an argument. (But sheesh, I'd forgotten about Kyle's incredibly phony "I think we'll be friends for life" when prior to that most of their interactions had been marking their territory near LVP's backside.) PK was not happy to have to leave the party, now that he's finally been welcomed into the husband clique.

FFS Garcelle, these women are dim as hell, just come out and say you thought Erika would wait til Tom croaked. Hinting at it isn't really more socially acceptable than just blurting it out, and it's just annoying seeing Lisa and Kyle whine that they don't get it.

 

So literally every episode is going to end on "To Be Continued..." Yawn.

I googled both her & her ex’s net worth as well. Because yes, she really seems to have lots of money.  It also says her ex, Thibeault Christian Stracke, has a net worth of $2 million.  Both of their net worth estimates have to be grossly understated.  His name alone sounds like money.  I read this about him:

“He manages real estate and corporate investments and has been in the business for more than 20 years. He's kind of a big deal.”

But we did find out last night Kyle only wears what is fashionable whether she likes it or it looks good on her.  If it is the trendy style she is wearing it.  On her short and curvy body mom jeans will look horrendous.  But the kids are wearing them🙄

I think it's hilarious that Erika (on the previews) states "I thought I was going to be holding that man's hands until the day he died."  Most people would simply say "I thought we would be together forever."   "Until the day he died" sounds like gold digger projecting her end goal.  His death.

God, Sutton is so controlling.  Kyle wants to speak to Dorit privately at her own house and Sutton doesn't want to let her?!??  I think Kyle's behaviour to Dorit and Dorit's reactions to her are making me really like Dorit.

Sutton freaking out about Garcelle asking for the price of a Bentley.  Okay Sutton is exactly as rich as I thought.  I don't know why Google only puts her net worth at $2 million.  If I "only" had $2 million I would not be so cavalierly buying a Bentley.   Now she’s throwing a $35000 party?  Why is it gauche to ask for the price of a car but not to announce how much your party is?

Crystal's son Max, what a doll.  

Crystal saying she would rather wait outside for 2 hours rather than walk herself into someone’s house tells me a lot about her boundaries.  I always understood her discomfort with Sutton, but now it makes even more sense.   I like PK even more that he defended her.
