'Dancing with the Stars': Erika Jayne says her policeman son 'is my biggest cheerleader' but will not sit in audience

Erika Jayne plans to push the limit with sexy wardrobe on 'DWTS'


Erika Jayne stars on two reality shows, but she's largely kept her policeman son out of the public eye.

The sexy blonde recently startled "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" fans by opening up about her fears about the safety of her only child Tommy Zizzo, 24.

Jayne raged on camera to co-star Eileen Davidson, "Your kid doesn’t put on a uniform every day and night and put his life out on the line for people he doesn’t know. Don’t ever talk about my f--king kid again. Shut the f--kup. You don’t know what I deal with every night."

On Monday night's "Dancing with the Stars," the celebrities shared personal stories about their lives and Jayne chose to focus on the year she moved from Atlanta to New York to pursue show business. Eventually, she moved to Los Angeles and hit it big as a singer and TV housewife.

When asked by FOX411 if she ever considered talking about her earlier life as a single mom raising Zizzo, Jayne said, "No, I didn't, because it's my choice to reveal certain parts of my life and keep others very private. That is something between my family and myself."

When asked if her son would come and watch her perform live as a "DWTS" audience members, she said, "No, he will not." When asked why not, Jayne said, cryptically, "That's between us."

But she added, "of course" he's been giving her feedback and "watches [DWTS] on TV and he lives with me at home.

"He's like my biggest cheerleader but he will not be attending [DWTS]."

Meanwhile, Jayne's lawyer husband Thomas Girardi is also "at home, cheering and happy for me."

When the reality star gets home after Girardi has seen her dance on TV, "He has the biggest smile and the biggest twinkle in his eye. He couldn't be any sweeter."

Jayne continued to flaunt her sexiness on Monday night's fourth week of "DWTS" competition, earning a score of 30 out of 40 with partner Gleb Savchenko for a cha cha tribute to Madonna's "Express Yourself."

Hers was one of the lowest scores of the night and Judge Len Goodman sighed that Jayne's dance was "same old, same old. You go down that sexy route." (She wound up in the bottom two with Mr. T, but "The A-Team star was the one eliminated on Monday).

Jayne was undeterred, telling FOX411, "I performed my ass off and will continue to do so next week. Whatever happens, happens. Let the chips fall where they may."

She said of her over-the-top sexy style, "Some people love it, some people don't, and that's their choice."
