More recently, Erica has been appearing in television shows such as “Last Man Standing” and “Let’s Stay Together” in recurring roles, all adding to her net worth.

During her career, Erika has received many prestigious awards and nominations including two NAACP Image awards in the category of Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series in 1996, as well as in 1998 for her role in the sitcom “Living Alone”.
