The season 10 newbie is revealing her first impressions of her RHOBH co-stars and she’s not holding back!
According to Sutton, she’s been asked to join the Real Housewives several times before. She was even asked to join RHOC back when she was living in Orange County
“I had been asked many times before, or at least like, ‘Let’s have a conversation about this, Sutton, we would love for you to come on board.’ And even when I was in Orange County that started,” Sutton revealed. “But that was like really early in the process and I was never interested. And so finally it was a couple of years ago, they called me and said, ‘We really want you to do the show.’ And I was having lunch with Lisa ironically about the same time. And she just said, ‘If you do it, just be really prepared.’ And I had just gone through a divorce and I was like, ‘I don’t think I’m prepared.’ So about a year later, I thought, ‘Oh, I think I’m ready for this. Let’s do it.’”
While Sutton was ready to join RHOBH she still didn’t “really know what to expect in any way, shape or form.”
“I did think that I would get to know Lisa in a different way and we went over a hump and that did happen, so that’s cool,” she explained. “And there were some girls in the beginning that I thought, I’m never going to get to know them, and I ended like, ‘Wow. I really like them and got close.’ So it’s been cool.”
As far as adjusting to life in front of the cameras, Sutton admits she wasn’t phased by it at all.
“Filming didn’t bother me at all. I think what was harder is when other people are around and then they get nervous. Like my friends or like my boyfriend, they would get nervous,” she admitted. “I’m such a goofball that it didn’t really bother me. I think it’s going to be interesting to see how my look progressed cause I’m not a big makeup person. And the further we got into it, the bigger my lashes were getting, I’m like what is happening here? And I realized, especially when you’re shooting with all the girls, you’re like, ‘Oh, you better bring it.’”
With all that said, let’s get into Sutton’s thoughts on her RHOBH c0-stars.
Sutton didn’t say much about Denise Richards except how disappointed she was that the actress didn’t show up to the finale party because of her ongoing drama with Brandi Glanville.
“We went to the final party at Dorit’s house and I was in the car with my boyfriend and I said, ‘I really hope Denise comes’. And she wasn’t there. It surprised me,” Sutton told Us. “And also it made me sad because I wanted her to be there. I really like her. She’s a really dear person and she has a very calm energy. I think we’re all, we all like her. So I think we were all disappointed that she didn’t come.”
Speaking of Brandi Glanville, Sutton says she only knows Denise’s side of the drama and hasn’t talked to Brandi about it.
“I haven’t really talked to Brandi about her side of the story. But I did tell Brandi, because I had heard rumors a year before the show about them, and I was like [to Brandi], ‘You cannot do that. Don’t kiss and tell,’” Sutton said. “And she just doesn’t give — she’s like, ‘I’m living my life, you know?’ She’s open and honest. So we’ll see.”
