In this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Erika Jayne announced that she gave up fighting for lent. But given what we know about her upcoming feud with Denise Richards, she may have some repenting to do.
At BravoCon last weekend, TVLine talked to Erika and her castmate Kyle Richards about what to expect from the rest of RHOBH Season 13 — namely, an explosive dinner with Denise.

“Denise came looking for a fight,” Erika revealed. “She picked a fight at a dinner party.”
Erika teased that the fight began when Denise said something to her that she felt should have been directed toward former cast members Lisa Rinna, Teddi Mellencamp and Brandi Glanville — whatever that means!
Normally, it wouldn’t take much to set Erika off. This season, however, she’s been notably zen — even allowing Sutton Stracke to walk out of a Magic Mike striptease without penalty!
So what could Denise have done to set her off?
“I don’t really know, because I don’t think she knew what she was saying,” Erika shared. Whatever it was, Erika was able to let it slide at first, but claimed she ultimately “ended it.”
Kyle told TVLine people are comparing the blow-up to the iconic Season 1 episode “Dinner Party From Hell.” Fans of the show will remember the event as the origin story for one of reality TV’s most widely memed villains: the chain-smoking, martini-sipping psychic Allison DuBois.
And from that moment on, explosive dinners have become a familiar staple of this franchise. In Season 5, the ladies went international with their hellish meals when Lisa Rinna lunged at Kim Richards, throwing wine and shattering glass, after Kim brought up her husband. In Season 11, Kathy Hilton hosted a sit-down at her palatial estate when an especially agitated Erika growled, “Look at my f–ing life” as a single tear slid down her cheek.
While we won’t see Allison — or a distraught Eileen Davidson, for that matter — in this season’s hellish dinner party, Kyle confirmed that many other familiar faces will have a seat at the table: Faye Resnick, Camille Grammer and even Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Cynthia Bailey.
