Thick as thieves?
Teddi Mellencamp stands up for former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costar Erika Jayne. While doing so she calls Sutton Stracke “hypocritical” for being worried about her reputation when it comes to Erika’s legal issues.
“I can’t imagine how challenging this has been for [Erika]. I’m proud that she’s been able to be so open. I think Erika’s excellent at being a really good friend to other people and I think it’s hard for her to let people in,” Teddi told Us Weekly on the “Getting Real with the Housewives” podcast. “I think that even though people may want more and every single crumb of detail, this is more than she ever has shared before and I think that goes to show how much she’s probably really been struggling.”
During the September 1 episode of RHOBH, Sutton continued to question Erika about her divorce from her estranged husband Tom Giardi and their mounting legal battles.
The All-In accountability coach continued, “I do think it’s a little bit hypocritical to never ask somebody questions about their personal life to then all of a sudden want all of the questions answered. Like nobody was grilling her about all of these personal details before, they were just letting it be. Nobody knew who Sutton was before Real Housewives, nobody even knew who I was either, but if you’re really concerned about your reputation, if you want to uphold, like, an amazing reputation and all of the charities you’re in and all the things, you don’t go on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. … so that argument is a little flawed for me.”
