If, after watching last week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, you thought everything was hunky dory between Sutton Stracke and Erika Jayne – think again!
On the September 28 episode of the RHOBH: After Show, Sutton makes it clear she will “NEVER” be friends with Erika.
To start, Sutton explains why she went to Erika’s Pretty Mess hair extension event and invited Erika to her house for a fried chicken and champagne lunch despite Erika’s lack of support for her boutique, The Sutton Concept.
“When I came into this group of women, I truly came in after my divorce. It had been a few years, and it took me a while to pick myself up; I was inspired by this group of ladies. Everyone had a business, was working, and we were all supporting each other. It was very inspiring, and I remembered that, and I thought, ‘I am going to Erika’s hair extension event, even if there’s a beef.’ Because it’s the right thing to do,” Sutton explained.
Sutton noted several of the ladies in the group, including Erika, failed to support her business endeavors, including her Cashmere & Caviar event, over the past year. She also points out that the ladies didn’t support Garcelle’s book launch.
“I did a very big thing this year with my cashmere line, and I did not have all of the ladies’ support. I did not. And [Garcelle] did not have all of the support for [her] book,” Sutton points out.
Despite this, Sutton still attempted to put her and Erika’s issues behind them.
Meanwhile, Erika insists she wants peace with Sutton and hopes they can move on with their relationship.
“I went there with an open heart, and we attempted to connect, and I went over with an open heart and an open mind,” Erika said.
“I have to move on with my life, and I have to move on with the relationships that I have in this group of women. I don’t know what is going to happen, but truly in my heart of hearts, I want peace. I want [a] resolution. A lot of hurtful things have been said between the two of us. I’m a fighter. I fight back, but I don’t want this; I don’t seek this sort of animosity. I want peace within my life and within this group of women,” she continued.
While Erika is waiting “see how long [the peace] lasts” between Sutton and her, Sutton, on the other hand, isn’t ready for a friendship with Erika just yet.
“I can’t let it go, and I don’t trust her; you try having someone say that they played you and then call you a terrible name. How do you move on from that ever? Do I enjoy her sometimes? Like, her company is [quite] funny. I don’t wish her harm. But she’s not a friend. She never will be,” Sutton said.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm on Bravo.
