The infamous “dark” comment allegedly made by Sutton Stracke was finally revealed on Wednesday’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Last week, Crystal Minkoff alleged that Sutton made a “dark” comment during their infamous fight about race in Lake Tahoe, CA last season. Now the truth about the comment is coming to light.
“It’s about my family and how I have raised them to have multicultural friends. We have a pool, we have a Jacuzzi, everybody’s welcome. That’s it,” Sutton told her c0-stars during a group dinner in Mexico.
A flashback then popped up on the screen and confirmed that these were the “dark” comments Crystal was referring to.
“My white child is with Black girls in there, a Chinese girl was in the Jacuzzi and I’m like, ‘This is what it should be,’” Sutton told Crystal during their fight last season.
This revelation shocked the RHOBH cast as they were led to believe that Sutton’s “dark” comment was much worse.
“It’s not like she said something that was so horrible. I was like, ‘Is there something else?’ That doesn’t seem ‘dark’ to me,” Garcelle Beauvais told Crystal. “That didn’t seem as ‘dark’ as you made it out to be. That’s what I’m talking about.”
Crystal was surprised by Garcelle’s reaction and asked if she found Sutton’s comments to be at all “problematic.”
“Was it problematic to me? No,” Garcelle shot back. “What we’re all taking offense to is the fact that you alluded to it being something really bad that could hurt her reputation.”
Ultimately, Crystal apologized, telling Sutton, “I’m sorry.”
Despite the drama, Sutton admitted she’s not ready to give up on her budding friendship with Crystal.
“Look, I like Crystal. As much as I hate her, I like her. So thanks,” Sutton told Crystal.
Meanwhile, Crystal went on to allege that there’s a double standard within the group.
“If [Lisa] Rinna or Erika [Jayne] said the word ‘dark,’ no one would question them,” Crystal said in her confessional. “I say it, it’s suddenly so horrific that I used it. Too much, too intense. I think they see me as someone that they can easily sort of attack, judge, poke.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm on Bravo.
