Erika Girardi Owns Her Meltdown: 'I Took the Real Low Road'


People.com:
“Ice Queen” Erika Girardi shocked Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans last week when she broke down in tears and lashed out at Eileen Davidson over an unfortunately ill-worded analogy during an already-tense dinner in Hong Kong.

But on Tuesday’s all-new episode, the 45-year-old Dancing with the Stars contestant pulled a Lisa Rinna and “owned it” — apologizing to Davidson days after returning to the 90210.

“It’s important for me that she hears that I really, really apologize for snapping at her in Hong Kong,” Girardi told viewers. “We have a great friendship and she’s done a lot for me and I want to make sure that she knows it.”

“I had a meltdown,” Girardi explained. “I am human. I thought about this many times. It just sucks because I don’t want to be that way.”

In Hong Kong, Davidson, 57, made the mistake of trying to reason Girardi into forgiving rival Dorit Kemsley by suggesting Kemsley hadn’t “committed some horrible heinous crime.”

“I don’t think [Dorit] really understood what she was getting into,” Davidson said. “I don’t think she’s evil. She’s already saying ‘sorry’ — what do you want then? There’s nothing she can say or do that can make it okay? She didn’t kill your child.”

That last line was the straw for Girardi, whose 24-year-old son, Tommy Zizzo, is a police officer.

“Don’t every bring up killing my child again because my child could get killed,” Girardi shot back through tears. “Your kid doesn’t put on a uniform every day and night and put his life out on the line for people he doesn’t know. Don’t ever talk about my f—ing kid again. Shut the f— up. You don’t know what I deal with every night.”
