If it is easy to sit in front of the television or anonymously behind a computer screen, and pass judgement on a celebrity, presuming that every ounce of what is presented over the airwaves is indeed true, then it might be difficult to reconcile the fact that what we see on TV, and what exists in real life, might not actually be the same things. Could it be that “reality,” as it is billed to the consumer, is instead an intentional manipulation of the viewer? In this heartfelt discussion about the tangled web of identity, reality star Erika Girardi, discusses how, by her nature, she is soft spoken, sweet and shy. She admits to hiding behind her wealthy husband and prefers to curl up on the couch in her sweatpants above all else. But, as Erika Jayne, the playful over-the-top fantasy character she “created as an art project,” she becomes a blond bombshell for her fans; with major sex appeal and some fiercely outspoken wit. In this sincere and genuine talk, delivered straight from her heart, Erika wrestles with the juxtaposition of her warring identities...and seeks to find peace with who she really is.
