Bravo is upping the ante on Erika Jayne, ordering a documentary series following the embattled “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star and pop singer as she mounts a solo Las Vegas music residency.
“Erika Jayne: Bet It All on Blonde” will air in two parts in the second quarter of 2024. Combining interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, the doc will follow Jayne as she embarks on her most ambitious stage effort yet — all while grappling with fallout from the implosion of her marriage and civil lawsuits against her and husband Tom Girardi (as well as new criminal accusations surrounding the once-venerated lawyer). The news was announced out of BravoCon 2023 in Las Vegas.

“Nothing is making me happy,” Jayne laments in the first trailer for the series. Budget issues, her plunging waistline (it’s hormones!) and the eyes of a cynical media all befall Jayne as she hopes to launch her show, one that has potential for an extended run if she sticks the landing. The series also features Jayne’s former creative director Mikey Minden, and will presumably showcase Jayne’s catalogue of music including “Painkillr,” “How Many F-cks,” “Xxpn$ive” and “Pretty Mess.”
The project is produced by 32 Flavors Entertainment and Goodbye Pictures. Alex Baskin, Jeff Festa, Rich Bye, Mark Ritchie, Billy Taylor and Jayne will all serve as executive producers.
“Bet it All on Blonde” was announced in April, and is staged within House of Blues Las Vegas. Performances kicked off on Aug. 2 and will run over five weekends through Dec. 2.
