Not so fast!
Sutton Stracke and Crystal Kung Minkoff’s roles as full-time cast members are safe despite reports hinting that producers were demoting one season 11 diamond holder.
According to Radar Online, both Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars will be returning as full-time cast members for season 12.
Neither Sutton nor Crystal have been demoted to “friends of” the Housewives and will resume their roles as full-time Housewives when the show returns with new episodes in 2022.
Sources close to the cast tell Radar that any gossip about producers being unhappy with Sutton and Crystal’s performances while filming season 12 is “inaccurate.”
Rumors began to swirl that either Crystal or Sutton could be on the chopping block after a tipster told Deux Moi that one of the season 11 cast members would not be holding a diamond for season 12.
The unidentified source said the Housewife spent her first season gong after one of the more seasoned stars on the show.
The tipster also claimed that this “quiet and boring” Houswife was going to be one of the franchise’s “one-hit wonders” because producers weren’t “seeing anything interesting” from her while filming season 12.
RHOBH will return to Bravo for season 12 in 2022.
