Sutton Stracke Accuses Kyle Richards of Spreading Alcoholic Rumors About Her!
Sutton Stracke believes that Kyle Richards was pulling Dorit Kemsley’s strings when she made shady remarks about her drinking habits during a recent episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Crystal Kung Minkoff, 40, told Sutton what was said behind her back during a scene that featured the trio chatting in Kyle’s kitchen. Sutton, 52, later lashed out at Kyle, 54, because she believed that she had nudged Dorit to imply that she had a drinking problem on camera.
Sutton dished about the situation during the December 13 episode of “RHOBH: After Show.”
She said — “You gotta love Crystal because she will provide information.”
Sutton acknowledged that “everybody talks about everybody behind their backs,” but added that she believed that Kyle and Dorit were trying to harm her reputation.
“What Kyle and Dorit are doing, that’s intentionally damaging toward me … What is Dorit doing? She doesn’t seem like a friend to me,” Sutton said.
Garcelle Beauvais asked — “Why do you think she did it?”
Sutton replied — “I think, again, there’s a puppet master here. I think Kyle’s the puppet master.”
Crystal explained why she decided to relay the conversation, pointing out that she’d want to know if she was in Sutton’s position.
“If someone said about me, that I’m the type of person to put vodka in my coffee, it felt like the implication was that I am an alcoholic that drinks all the time. I would want someone to tell me so I could defend myself,” Crystal explained.
Dorit chimed in to say that Crystal should’ve spoken up in the moment if she had issues with her comments.
“I think rather than running off and telling Sutton, it would’ve been nice to say, ‘Oh Dorit, geez, that’s a pretty harsh comment.’ You defend Sutton in the moment. You didn’t mention that it’s a harsh comment,” Dorit asserted.
Crystal hit back — “I think I said that I don’t think that’s true. That comment struck me and that’s why I brought it up.”
Dorit stated that without context her remarks came across as more offensive than they actually were.
“My intention when I said that was more of, ‘Listen, I know she is a drinker. She doesn’t hide the fact that she’s a drinker.’ It was kind of like, ‘I don’t know, I don’t know if she’s the type that puts vodka in her coffee.’ But I think that because that comment was taken in isolation, it became a bigger comment,” she explained.
Dorit pointed out that she made the remark after hearing about Kyle and Sutton’s heated interaction at Sutton’s house.
“Kyle was a little suspicious because she wasn’t used to that type of behavior from Sutton even though that to me doesn’t seem out of character for her at all. And her summation was that perhaps Sutton had had a couple of drinks,” Dorit said. “I remember Kyle sitting there kind of wanting to say, not wanting to say, just say what you’re gonna say, especially if you said it.”
Dorit added — “It originated from Kyle.”
Kyle sounded off in her own “RHOBH: After Show” segment, hinting that she could’ve said much more about her co-star.
“As soon as Dorit said that, I was thinking, ‘Sutton’s going to be upset about this comment,’” she said.
Erika Jayne, 52, interjected — “But Sutton’s made some comments about you too.”
“Oh, so many this season. By the way, by the time I heard some of the things that were said about me, I would like to go back and add to that conversation,” Kyle said.
Kyle claimed to feel badly about her comments regarding Sutton’s drinking, but reiterated that she was confused by her erratic behavior.
“I felt bad about the comments with the drinking, but I didn’t really know with some of her behavior if that’s what it was,” she explained. “[But] I wasn’t the one who said it about the vodka and coffee so I was like, ‘I can’t control what everyone says around me.’”
