Opening up!

Crystal Minkoff reveals why she chose not to get involved in the season 11 drama between Erika Jayne and Sutton Stracke.

In a new interview with Us Weekly, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newbie admits she felt “unsafe” involving herself in the drama.

“I understood both sides. That was the moment that I felt like I get why Erica felt that way. Because for me, if someone called me a liar, that is super damaging to my integrity [and] my family’s integrity,” Crystal explained. “I’m not a liar. So that would be really challenging for me.”

While Crystal understood why Erika was upset with Sutton’s prodding, she disagreed with how Erika went about addressing it.

“Watching [Erika] yell at [Sutton] … I might’ve left myself, had that happen to me. But this is, like, real stuff. It wasn’t silly fighting. This was intense [with] the legalities of things,” Crystal said. “There was a lot going on, so maybe that’s probably why I was more quiet. To insert myself into such a heavy topic felt unsafe for me as well.”

However, fans can expect to see a more vocal version of Crystal at the season 11 reunion.
According to Crystal, the reunion took at least “10 hours” to film as the cast took a deep, deep dive into the drama.

“It was long; we went past wrap time,” she told E! News. “We were starving; we were all so hungry at the end.”

When it comes to Erika’s legal issues, Crystal said, “I definitely speak up more in the reunion than I do on the show…But again, it’s all revealing itself in real-time even today. It’s not resolved; nothing has been resolved, so we’re still asking questions from the past and in the moment.”

“There’s a lot of explosive moments,” Crystal added. “Yeah, it was intense. And I’m sure you’ll see again a lot of my facial expressions of being shocked and like, ‘What?! Oh my god!'”

“I will say that many questions are asked, many are answered, some are not for whatever reasons. But I don’t think that there was a stone unturned in terms of questions being asked,” Crystal teased. “I think everyone got the questions out that they wanted, Andy [Cohen] certainly asked a lot. I think people are going to be satisfied with the reunion.”

Crystal also admits she “was really, really nervous” heading into her first reunion, noting, “But I watched every episode back.”

“When I went in, I was like, ‘I have to rehash it.’ I have different feelings about it now, which is normal, and it was important for me to share that because I got really quiet because I was sort of traumatized by the whole thing [in the moment],” she confessed. “But then when you have time and space from it, you feel more grounded; it’s easier to talk about.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
