The claws are out between Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-stars Crystal Kung Minkoff and Sutton Stracke.
On Wednesday’s episode of RHOBH, Crystal and Sutton continued their racially charged squabble from the previous week’s episode and added new layers of drama to the mix.
After Sutton admitted that she doesn’t “see color [or] race,” Crystal revealed, in her confessional, why she took issue with Sutton’s statement.
“I see color; it’s part of who I am. A white person telling me you don’t see color, it’s like brushing it under the rug,” she explained.
Kyle Richards then attempted to defend Sutton, saying, “When she says, ‘I don’t see color,’ it means, ‘I see all of us equally,’ is what she means.”
Crystal suggested that she and Sutton “agree to disagree” and move on from the squabble.
However, the drama was far from over. The next morning Sutton approached Crystal to discuss their conversation from the night before
Sutton said she didn’t like the accusation that she’s “not sensitive to another race or another culture.” She also said that Crystal’s comments were “insulting.”
Crystal later admitted that she believes Stracke sees “everyone equally” before explaining that she has been “on the other side of racism” and has “been attacked.”
“‘People see color,’ that comment actually holds people back [in] society,” she noted.
Despite smoothing things over, the drama was between Sutton and Crystal was just getting started.
Later that evening, at dinner, drama was on the menu, and it was served piping hot.
Sutton noticed her co-stars were texting each other at dinner and felt that she was left out of the joke. She admitted that she doesn’t like being left out on the joke, adding, “it freaks me out.”
Sutton reignited her drama back at the house with Crystal, who had attempted to nudge Sutton in the car to drop the conversation.
“I kicked you because I didn’t want to ruin the joke,” Crystal insisted.
Crystal, and everyone else, was shocked and confused by Sutton’s behavior. She then dubbed Sutton “highly insecure” and a “ridiculous human being.” She also called Sutton a “drama queen” and hinted that she loves to play the “victim.”
“If it’s not about her or she’s not included, she thinks that she’s somehow the victim of something,” Crystal said. “She should win an Oscar for being a drama queen.”
Crystal apologized to Sutton and suggest she “move on,” which is highly unlikely in the world of Housewives.
“There’s no moving forward. I’m done,” Crystal said before adding in her confessional, “You cannot rationalize with irrational people.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
