Instead, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star actually needed surgery.
On Friday, the Real Housewives found herself in a Los Angeles hospital to fix a tear she suffered in her upper-body during one of her performances on #DWTS.
A source from the show has stated that Erika felt as if she was suffering from an upper-body injury in early April.
She did see the doctors during the initial injury, and they did confirm the injury, but being the soldier that Erika is, she decided to cary on with the show, ignoring the insane amount of pain that she was in.
Erika opted out of telling anyone, because she didn’t want any sympathy from anyone, and then went on to eliminated shortly after the injury occurred, regardless.
Doctors told Erika that she definitely shouldn’t be dancing, so that’s why she watched on from the sidelines while sitting on top of a unicorn during the finale.
Do you see Erika riding her unicorn in the video? Epic lolz.
And just to attest to the fact that Erika is such a beast, she didn’t even let her hospital trip keep her from updating all of her fans on social media in regards to her status.
Check out all of the pictures she shared from her hospital bed:
