Erika Jayne has often been the target of criticism from fans of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” in the last couple of seasons and a recent interview about her decision to keep using her glam team has gotten her in hot water once more.
In an interview shared on Bravo TV, Jayne explained why she still spends on glam despite her tricky financial situation and said she doesn’t think her decision should be judged. In the June 15 episode of RHOBH as the cast traveled to Mexico for a trip, Jayne said in an interview, “You can downsize, and we’ve downsized, right?” in reference to her new home.
“Certain things you don’t downsize on, and that’s your glam,” she added. “Fashion, hair, makeup: To me, it’s art, living art, and I enjoy that. And it shouldn’t be judged any other way. Nobody judges if people want to have big families. I want to buy a bunch of clothes.”
Jayne wasn’t the only RHOBH member who had a glam team on the trip to Mexico, but one cast member, Crystal Kung Minkoff, had a different opinion. “I don’t even want to pay for my own hotel room,” she shared. “I’m not trying to pay for other people’s [rooms] and their flights and their food and paying them. I can just put on some lip gloss and I’m good. I would just never travel with glam. Why spend the money? It’s ridiculous.”
