Sutton Stracke Called This Celeb Amid Her Lake Tahoe Drama with Crystal Kung Minkoff
The RHOBH cast member reached out to a famous friend while all the conflict was going down on the Season 11 girls' trip.
While some friendships were still in limbo during The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 11 finale, which aired on October 6, others seemed to be in a better place than ever. The latter was, thankfully, the case for Sutton Stracke and Crystal Kung Minkoff, who, as RHOBH viewers may recall, did not get off to a great start this season.
Sutton and Crystal first clashed during the RHOBH girls' trip to Lake Tahoe early on in Season 11, which was filled with some dramatic and emotional moments between the two of them. It's no wonder Sutton reached out to her good friend, Jennifer Tilly, for some support when it was all going down.
"Well, I was getting phone calls from Lake Tahoe," Jennifer revealed during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on October 6 (clip above). "I'm like, 'Calm down, Sutton, calm down. What's going on?' I think part of the problem was, you know, you've got all these people that don't know each other, and they're in a very tight area."
For those who don't know, when Sutton isn't hanging out with the RHOBH ladies, you'll often see her with her BFF Jennifer, who stars in the upcoming Chucky premiering on USA and SYFY on Tuesday, October 12 at 10/9c (you can learn more here). The besties frequently keep their followers updated on all of their adventures on Instagram.
So, of course, Jennifer was #TeamSutton this season of RHOBH — although it became a bit more difficult to maintain that stance once she actually got to know Crystal. "I do in the beginning, I was like, 'Oh, that Crystal! Oh my gosh. How dare she go after my friend,'" Jennifer recalled on WWHL. "And then I met her at a party. I was like, 'She's so nice. She's really cute [laughs].'"
It turns out, Sutton and Crystal ended up having those same warm and fuzzy feelings about each other as the season went on, and they really seemed to connect during the girls' trip to Del Mar. "We haven't really talked it through. In my heart, I didn't want to forgive," Crystal told Sutton in the September 29 episode of RHOBH. "But I've just been enjoying you, and I have been really enjoying our time together. And I just want you to know that, and everyone should know that."
Their friendship seems to just keep getting strong and stronger, too. Sutton and Crystal both recently shared a photo of themselves embracing at Portia Umansky's bat mitzvah last weekend. "Miracles do happen!" Sutton captioned the pic posted on October 4.
We'll catch up more with Sutton, Crystal, and the rest of the RHOBH cast at the four-part Season 11 reunion, which kicks off with Part 1 on Wednesday, October 13 at 8/7c. Get your first look, below.
