Erika Jayne loves to stir up drama on social media, which is exactly what she did with the Goodfellas photo where she tagged her RHOBH co-stars.

While The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is on hiatus for the winter, Erika Jayne has been very busy keeping busy by posting on social media to confuse fans.  Any time there is a rumor in the news about issues between cast members, Erika is always the first to stir up that speculation with a vague post.  While that was Lisa Rinna’s schtick last year, Erika seems to have taken on the role for her.

Last week, news broke that Erika’s husband, Tom Girardi, was being sued by a group of people for fraud again.  Erika posted a photo to her Instagram of the cast of Goodfellas, a mobster movie starring Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci, and many others.  She tagged herself, Rinna, Kyle Richards, and Dorit Kemsley in the photo.  If we had to guess, Erika is offering a thing veiled threat reminding the rest of the RHOBH cast that she thinks she is in charge.  Or, perhaps, she’s just slow on the uptake that Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is gone.

Kathy Hilton recently agreed to sign on as a friend, while Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke are returning, in addition to Crystal Kung Minkoff joining as a full-time cast member.  If we had to guess, Erika is simply reminding the other cast members that she thinks she is in charge.  But if we read into this in the lens that is the Goodfellas movie, perhaps she’s saying they are simply sticking together to benefit each other on the show.

It isn’t lost on us that Erika thinks it is cute and funny to align her character and her friends to the likes of mobsters, murderers, thieves, and overall terrible people.  Kyle, Rinna, Dorit, and Erika argue on camera while decked out in enough makeup to cover the statue of liberty if need be.  Entertaining?  Sure, that’s the point.  But certainly not living a mob lifestyle.  She is no Leah McSweeney Married to the MOB! (Just kidding!)

Erika is one of those people who always thinks she is the smartest and funniest person in the room, which is really an unenjoyable trait for the rest of us.  If we had to guess, the Goodfellas have made their yearly pact to take someone down, and that is likely Garcelle.  Since Garcelle is by far the biggest threat to them and stood up to everyone last season, she’s definitely got a target on her back.

We just need to know, did she credit Martin Scorsese for the pic she posted to Instagram?  We know she loves to steal pictures without credit and loves when people call her out about it.  We still think it is Erika’s time to go…but perhaps she has some unfinished business to take care of first.

Erika Jayne and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will be back next year on Bravo.
