The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills head to the heart of the United Arab Emirates this week for a lavish and drama-filled getaway -- that is, according to star Erika Jayne.
"Dubai was pretty spectacular," Erika tells ETonline. "It's really fun. The scenery is incredible. I mean, Dubai is, you know, one of the most interesting cities in the world. So, you get to see us really in the desert, you get to see all the glamour of the shopping, stuff like that, lifestyle, for sure."
"There's some great moments," Erika teases. "There's some tears, some drama, but it was all well worth it. It was really quite the nice trip."
Still, Erika says she was not prepared for the close quarters of a Housewives vacation. When asked about being "all trapped in one space together," Erika responds with an "oof," before (maybe) joking that the ladies all fought like cats.
Before the women -- Erika, Eileen Davidson, Kathryn Edwards, Erika Giradi, Kyle Richards, and Lisa Rinna -- take the 17-hour flight from Los Angeles to Dubai, they'll wrap up their short trip to New York City.
"That's where Kathryn and I -- Kathryn, Kyle and I -- really get to know each other," Erika says. "And I really had a great time with Kathryn."
The cast is in New York to support co-star Yolanda Foster (who does not take the trip to Dubai with the rest of the cast) at the Uniting for a Lyme-Free World gala hosted by the Global Lyme Alliance. The star was being honored by the organization for her outspoken advocacy for Lyme disease.
"You get to see other people telling the same story, and it's not just this lone voice in the woods," Erika shares. "It's other people that are saying, 'I'm suffering, these are my symptoms, I was told I was crazy.' They all said that. You know, there was some real tears shed, because it was very emotional."
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Tuesdays on Bravo at 9 p.m. ET. For more from our chat with Erika -- including some Housewives production secrets -- check out the video below.
