Erika threw Garcelle’s book in the trash
If you haven’t heard of Erika and Garcelle’s bookgate, then you clearly haven’t checked your Instagram this morning. But don’t worry, we’re here for you.
Garcelle has been promoting her new book, Love Me As I Am, on her social media platforms for the past few weeks. Erika also promoted the book about her story, but not in a friendly way, as it was in her trash can.
Erika Jayne shared a video of Garcelle’s book in her trash on her Instagram with the caption, “@Garcelle even though you unfollowed me I’m sure you’ll see this.” She then put the lid on the trash can and walked away.
Why did Erika throw the book away?
If you watched the clip from the trailer, you’ll probably know why Erika felt the need to put the book in the trash along with her empty Starbucks cup and Red Bull can. During the trailer, Garcelle tells Erika, “I don’t have to make you look bad – you can do it on your own.”
Erikas’ Instagram story was posted just three hours after Bravo released the trailer, so it’s clear bookgate was made to get one on his commentary.
Garcelle didn’t stay quiet on the subject, as she later shared a sleazy post with the caption, “You know how bad you can look on your own? By not pre-ordering your copy of #LoveMeAsIAm before its release on Tuesday 😂 link in bio.
Viewers don’t know which side to take
While many find the situation amusing, others decide which housewives to take…
Many believe that although Erika’s move was petty, Garcelle should be happy with the free publicity it brought to her book. A Twitter user wrote: “Garcelle owed Erika Girardi a big ‘thank you! I now know that Garcelle wrote a book! “. Another said: “Garcelle be like thanks for the free promo”
Some viewers are more interested in Erika’s trash than the drama itself. One viewer wrote on Twitter, “I want to dig through Erika Jayne’s trash, there’s so much tea in there.” Another said: ‘Everyone is talking about her throwing the book in the trash but I’m very obsessed that Erika Jayne still has that old phone to throw away’
