For a week, "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" fans were left wondering what erika girardi was going to break down over. The previews showed her saying something about no one understanding what she deals with every night. Of course, the rumor mill started churning and immediately reports were talking about trouble between her and her husband, Tom Girardi. Last night it confirmed that it was not about her marriage, but it was about her son.

Erika shows emotion

There were plenty of emotional moments on last night's episode of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." Erika Girardi had a confrontation with Dorit Kemsley about "pantygate" once again.

The two exchanged words on the boat, with Lisa Rinna directly in the middle. It was Erika and Lisa against Dorit. While she held her own, the two ladies really handed it to her. There were some tears shed, though Erika was not impressed she let her emotions get the best of her in a public setting and on camera.

The breakdown happened over dinner. All of the ladies were out together and things got a little out of control. Lisa Rinna asked Dorit Kemsley whether or not she trusts her husband. After that, things went downhill fast. Eileen Davidson tried to step in and help Erika Girardi to realize that Dorit was trying to apologize. In her attempt to do so, Eileen managed to use a hyperbole and set Erika off the deep end about her son.

Eileen is shocked

Erika Girardi went off on Eileen Davidson in a very harsh manner. While the comment was something about killing your child, it was not directly meant about Erika's son. She took it very offensively and really let Eileen have it. This was shocking to everyone because the two are very close. There were tears from both ladies.

It was talked about on social media and many believed Girardi was too hard on Davidson.

According to E! Online, Erika Girardi has admitted that she was hard on Eileen Davidson. Looking back, she can now see it was an innocent comment and not said to hurt her or minimize the job her son does as a Los Angeles police officer.
