I will remember the memeification of Erika Jayne‘s conversation with Kyle Richards about the alleged robbery of her ex-husband Tom Girardi‘s house as long as I live. It’s not what Erika was talking about, which is admittedly grim, but the way she said it—her cadence,  the run-on sentences, her final line of “Yeah, I’m under a lot of stress” bringing it all together—and, of course, all the memes, TikToks and even yard signs(?) produced as a result.
