During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live this week, Erika, 47, was asked if her son would be seen on any future episodes of the RHOBH.
“Probably not,” she replied.
“I don’t think so, no. You know, he has a private life; he’s a police officer,” she continued.
Erika joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills during the show’s sixth season as a friend of Yolanda Hadid and has maintained her full-time role in the seasons since.
Although fans will likely never see Tommy on the show, Erika responded to inquiries about his looks.
“He looks just like me, but a boy,” she explained.
In the past, Erika has been open with the fact that her son is in law enforcement but admits his profession isn’t always easy to cope with.
“I’m very proud of my son being in law enforcement, but obviously it can get a little nerve racking,” she told The Daily Dish in 2016. “It’s a dangerous profession. I’ve known my son was going to be in law enforcement from the time he could walk and talk. That’s all he’s ever wanted and that’s kind of your role as a parent is to honor who your children really are.”
“I actually love having my son there. He’s free security, OK?” she said, with a laugh, at the time. “Free security and he never lets me forget it. But, you know, Tom’s very busy and travels all the time. I travel all the time, and my son is super busy. So it’s nice. We have a really big house, so it’s nice to have him there. And it’s nice; listen, let me be very honest, I worry about my boy as I’m sure everyone whose family member is in law enforcement or in the military [does], OK? It’s nice to hear him come home. It’s nice to hear him come off duty and I can see his car in the driveway or I hear him walk up the steps. To me, I sleep a little better at night just knowing that I know where he is.”
