‘RHOBH’ Star Erika Jayne Hopes ‘Bet It All On Blonde’ Doc Helps Viewers “See A Different Part Of My Life”

Erika Jayne is putting it all out there in a new two-part documentary titled Bet It All on Blonde that chronicles her struggles on the road to the opening night of her Las Vegas residency.

Ahead of the series premiere on Wednesday, March 6 at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo, we talked to Jayne to give us some insight into making the doc.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to watch me rebuild, reimagine, rebirth and to do it in the place that I love the most, which is on stage,” Jayne told Deadline.

The reality star told us that although “it was wonderful” to have cameras follow her journey, it was “very tough to do at the same time.”

Since being introduced to Bravo audiences on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6, Jayne has been a very guarded person. The documentary is led by her completely, which gives her no option but to show her real emotions as she also navigates the legal battle her estranged husband faces after being accused of scamming his clients.

“This is a safe space. This is my place. This is my world, my home, my show, my people that I’ve chosen to be around me [and] to create this amazing piece that we put together,” Jayne said of the differences between the documentary and RHOBH. “That already has a completely different dynamic. I don’t feel like I’m in a group of women that I have to defend my position or be criticized for something. This was a real journey, a personal journey, and that’s why you see really who I am.”

Jayne is credited with elevating the fashion game on RHOBH, traveling with her glam team to give her one-of-a-kind looks on the show. On Bet It All on Blonde, the performer is not afraid to show herself without glam, and Jayne tells us why that shift exists.

“You have to remember that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is entertainment and Bet It All on Blonde is a documented story to get to the stage where you end up in costume, hair, makeup and light,” she explained. “So it’s a peek behind the scenes, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is a completely different media.”

Throughout the two-part series, it’s documented how Jayne struggled to learn her show’s choreography and her biggest challenges.

“I felt very disconnected from the persona that I had built for so many years, the performance persona named Erika Jayne. So it’s hard, and you can see it in the doc,” she said.

In the series, Jayne opens up about being a child and dreaming of being a star, noting that she’s always been a “very big dreamer.” Reflecting on where she is now, Jayne said she would tell her child self this: “It’s OK, you’re right. Continue on it. There’s going to be challenges, and ones that you could not have forseen, but keep going because it is worth it, even on days that it doesn’t feel like. It is worth it Erika, it is. And it’s also what you were meant to do.”

Ultimately, Jayne wants audiences to take away from the documentary to “see a different part of my life, a different view into who I am outside of the group, outside of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

“I think they will see me Erika, rebuilding, reimagining and starting over but still doing what I love the most, which is performing,” she continued. “And perhaps they will see something different and learn something different about my past or who I am outside of the group. That’s all I can hope for because we had a great time, a great run of shows. I want to perform again [and] can’t wait to do it.”
