The couple went out with a bang after dancing a Viennese waltz inspired by Disney's Finding Dory, but Erika admitted Tuesday on Good Morning America, "I had a great time... [but] I wasn't ready to go."
"I felt like I was opening up and that we were growing," Erika said, referencing her partnership with Gleb.
"We did end on a high note. It was beautiful. It was emotional. I felt good about it. We worked hard. I'm proud of us," Erika noted.
While the blonde beauty has a lot of experience performing and singing onstage, she explained that one aspect of Dancing with the Stars was incredibly difficult for her to master.
"Partnering is harder than you can imagine. I knew it was going to be tough. I knew it would be a challenge. I always said that. But it was really difficult to come into [Gleb's] space and learn and really be his student. So, it was tough, but I am so appreciative and had a great time," Erika revealed.
Erika went on to compare her experience on the ABC reality dancing competition with her time on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which she had joined back in Season 6.
"Well, it's two totally different things. First off, everyone on Dancing with the Stars is very nice and very warm and very sweet," Erika said with a laugh, cracking a joke about how Housewives on the Bravo franchise tend to be portrayed as catty, feisty and dramatic. "Although [Gleb] and I had it out a couple of times, it was nothing like my other job."
"[Kyle Richards] would be good [on DWTS], but I really hope Kenya Moore is on the show next. She's great," Erika said on GMA.
