Although Erika Jayne keeps her son, Tommy Zizzo, out of the spotlight, she was obviously bursting with pride when she posted a photo of him in his police uniform in May 2020. The post got a lot of attention, and she opened up to Andy Cohen about why she did it.

"I am a proud mom of my essential worker son. He's out there working like every other man and woman," she said. When Cohen asked her if she was worried about him during the peak of the coronavirus pandemic, she said, "I think we all are. It's just a crazy time. We're all concerned for all of our families."

She continued, "He didn't choose this life and we try and protect them. I don't care that he's an adult and he carries a gun and a badge. At the end of the day he's still my boy. I posted it and I'm glad I did. He's a very fine young man and I'm super proud."

As for her son's decision to become a police officer, Erika told Bravo, "I've known my son was gonna be in law enforcement since the time he could walk and talk. That's all he's ever wanted and that's your role as a parent, to honor who your children really are."
