We knew the ladies of the Real Housewives franchise had some serious cash — Kyle Richards Umansky, for one, was robbed of more than $1 million in jewels late last year — but the beauty and style budget Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne (AKA Erica Girardi) just confirmed to Wendy Williams has our jaws on the floor.
While appearing on the daytime talk show yesterday, she said she sometimes shells out $40,000 a MONTH to keep her look on point. “I love your unapologetic way of being so rich,” Williams said. “It has been said that you spend $40,000 to keep this all together.”
“That is true,” Jayne answered. “Yeah, it can… well, you know, it can get there, for sure.”
When pressed for specifics about what exactly it is that she’s purchasing, the singer coyly replied, “Well, I mean, what I have on,” before explaining, “If you want to look good, it’s hair, it’s makeup, it’s wardrobe, and then those people that help facilitate that. They’re not cheap, ya know?”
While we may not be able to afford the type of 24/7 assistance Jayne, 46, enjoys on the reg or her Christian Louboutin-filled closet we can nab a few of her fave beauty scores. The reality star shared the “a little cheap, a little rich” contents of her makeup bag this summer, some of which ring in at $20 or less.
