Sutton Stracke Explains the "Good News" About Her Son Going to a Military College
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member had a unique take on why she and her son, Philip, "both win" with his decision to attend The Citadel.
When Sutton Stracke's daughter, Porter, moved into her dorm room at the College of William & Mary, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member went all out to make the space "feel like home," even hiring an interior designer to assist in the process. However, as she explained on the August 3 episode of RHOBH, the experience will be entirely different with her son Philip.
"After Philip graduates from high school, he's going to The Citadel, which is actually a military school," she said in an interview. "I think the good news is I don't have to decorate his room. It's not like a Porter situation. There's no like curtains and, you know, any of that stuff. I think you have to like bounce a quarter off your bed." With a laugh, she added, "Oh, Philip, guess what you have to do? Make up your bed every day, too."
Earlier in the episode, Sutton explained how her son selected the school. "Philip, a year ago, said he was going to join the army. He said, 'I want to join the army because I've been too comfortable.' You know, he lives a nice life," she shared. "I said, 'Oh, well I'll make you uncomfortable then.' I sent him to Georgia when it was gonna be 105 degrees with a hundred percent humidity. I made him get a job. He had to be there at 5:30 in the morning to deliver vending machine cokes and stuff. A month later, when I picked him up, he wanted to go to college. So, I don't spoil them at all."
With the decision to go to The Citadel, Sutton noted, she and Philip "both win."
