Most of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 was spent focusing on the legal issues facing Erika Jayne and her now estranged ex-husband Tom Girardi. Erika defended herself vehemently after it was revealed that Tom and his law firm were being sued for embezzlement.
Sutton Stracke was the first housewife to hold Erika’s feet to the fire, which caused problems with Erika and also everyone else in the friends group who took sides. After a tense dinner party At Kathy Hilton’s house, the friendship between the two seemed unsustainable.
Now that season 12 begins, Sutton talks about their relationship and how the upcoming season has been for both of them.
Sutton still has “a lot of questions” for Erika
Sutton recently threw a cashmere and caviar party to launch a new collection for her boutique Sutton Concept and has spoken candidly about the upcoming season.
Regarding her friendship with Erika, Sutton said, “I think Erika and I still have a lot to do. I think it was another very tumultuous ride.” The two were at each other’s throats most of last season and Sutton was one of the few willing to stand up to Erika and try to learn the truth about her legal situation from her.
“I said last time: It’s going to be hot and cold in our travels because we’re going from Mexico to Aspen, and I think we’re all going to be hot and cold [too]’ Sutton explained, referring to the internal workings of standard Housewives connections. “We make friends, we don’t make friends. It’s a normal housewife’s day.”
When asked if she felt Erika had been more transparent and honest this season, Sutton replied, “I don’t know. I always have questions for Erika.” Sharing a bit of gossip about the upcoming season, she said, “I’ve enjoyed the moments with Erika. It’s been my toughest season and probably my best learning curve season, but it’s so explosive. We had so much fun and then so many fights and then so much fun and then fights. I call it the time of forgiveness.”
Crystal Minkoff admits she believes Erika
Crystal and Sutton have been working on their relationship since last season, but that doesn’t mean she agrees with Sutton when it comes to Erika. “I don’t know, you can call me gullible,” Crystal said. “I tend to believe people at face value because I am. I’m just telling the truth whether I like it or not. But I can also tell the truth, do you know what I mean? This is me.”
She continued to elaborate Feelings about Erika’s legal problemsShe revealed: “I always believe her. I’m good with everyone, it’s just my personality. I like to always give people the benefit of the doubt. If there are things I don’t like or feel conflicted about, I will say so.”
Crystal also said she’ll always give Erika a chance, admitting, “Just because I’m having a conflict about the situation or something doesn’t mean I’m going to write you off completely. I think if you want to make friends with someone or have clarity, you have to let that out.”
Season 12 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premieres Wednesday, May 11 at 8:7c on Bravo.
