Regarding Sutton Stracke, the “biggest sh*t stirrer” of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 13, Kyle Richards is speaking out. Following her declaration on a recent podcast episode with Teddi Mellencamp, 42, and Tamra Judge, 56, that “Sutton” deserved the title, Kyle, 54, reflected on her extravagant breakdown at the Magic Mike concert in Las Vegas and shared her reasoning for deciding to sever ties with them.
On the November 4 episode of Two Ts in a Pod, Kyle reflected on the cast’s drama-filled trip to Sin City, saying that Sutton, 52, “was annoyed” with both her and Garcelle Beauvais, 56.
“But, of course, she would only take it out on me,” Kyle noted, explaining that Sutton was initially excited to go to the Magic Mike performance.
According to Kyle, Sutton’s meltdown had to do with jealousy that her costars got called up on stage during the performance while she wasn’t.
“I don’t know why she got so offended. I have my theory. She was supposed to get up there originally. They asked us all in advance… I think she was expecting to cause she was told that and then she wasn’t,” Kyle suspected. “It was supposed to be [Crystal Kung Minkoff], [Erika Jayne], and Sutton… I don’t know why Sutton didn’t go up with them. They later said we were going to have you go up later… But then she said no it wasn’t that.”
According to Kyle, Sutton seemed to be “offended by the whole thing,” which she found hypocritical considering Sutton “hired a stripper for Crystal’s birthday.”
Although Kyle confirmed that Sutton reached out to her after her meltdown, adding that they “were fine after that,” she hasn’t liked what she’s seen from Sutton thus far on the show.
“I started seeing the clips and I didn’t like the things I was hearing. So much focus about my marriage and my life… Like go try to meet somebody and worry about your own relationships,” Kyle advised of single Sutton. “Also she made a comment about Erika and her show in the press that didn’t sit well with me because I thought as a group… we’re all very supportive of each other’s endeavors. All of us show up for everybody’s things.”
As RHOBH fans will recall, Sutton shaded Erika’s allegedly low ticket sales and said she was too “busy” to attend the shows following the debut of her residency in August.
“It’s Garcelle’s film; they’re always really encouraging of my endeavors. Sutton’s Retail. We attend, we give her our support, and I shop and make purchases there. She said something that seemed to disparage Erika and her Vegas presentation. It was really cruel. “I thought, ‘This is revealing an entirely different aspect,'” Kyle remarked. “You don’t treat someone’s livelihood that way. And I found that extremely upsetting, thinking, “That’s so mean.” There’s no justification for acting in that manner. That coupled with her remarks regarding my marriage made me think, “Okay, I need a little break.”
At that point, Teddi mentioned that Erika recently accused Sutton of not being supportive of Kyle amid her marriage drama with Mauricio Umansky, 53, and Kyle seemed to agree.
The first person to connect with her was myself. It wounded me more since I genuinely liked her,” she said. We really are buddies, and I do like her. We do make each other laugh, and she’s entertaining. I felt attacked and trapped about my marriage when she approached me about it in this way, almost as if I had done her a favor or something, and it was all on camera rather than off camera when she asked, “Are you okay?”
“I was thinking, ‘Why are they acting like they’re mad at me that I’m going through this hard time? Why are they waiting till the cameras are here to ask me about this?’” she added.
