Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Erika Girardi on Dorit Kemsley: Is PantyGate Really Over?
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 8 premieres Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo
Bravo fans, rejoice: the return of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is around the corner.
“Yes, by all of us,” said Girardi, 46.
In case you missed it last season, Girardi accidentally flashed Dorit Kemsley‘s husband while wearing a short dress and no underwear. Instead of addressing the situation with Girardi directly, Kemsley criticized Girardi behind her back with the other women, suggesting Girardi might have done it on purpose and blaming Girardi for her husband’s stares — all before jokingly gifting her a pair of underwear to hide “her pretty little p—.”
Girardi and Kemsley, 41, later cleared the air at the reunion, and Girardi told PEOPLE Now that the two women have “been able to move on, which is nice.”
“I think you’re going to see a shift in a lot of relationships this season — not only Dorit and myself, but some others as well,” she added.
Joining the fray this season is new Housewife Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, daughter of music legend John Cougar Mellencamp. Married to husband Edwin Arroyave with two small children and one stepchild at home, the Bravo newbie works as a fitness accountability coach and blogger for her site LA Workout Junkie and, as evidenced in the trailer, appears to waste no time jumping into the drama.
“I think she’s interesting,” Girardi said. “She had some good days and some bad days, just like the rest of us.”
“You never know how it ends up — we’ll see how she enjoys the experience,” she added. “It never is what you think it is your first year.”

“Thankfully for me, she’s a fan of the project, so that’s how it happened,” Girardi said. “It was really neat to see yourself as an avatar and in costume. What’s great is I have a 6-ft. cut-out of her at home!”
