Sutton Stracke is opening up about some advice she gave to Kathy Hilton ahead of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 12 reunion that the mom of four didn’t take.
“I had spoken to Kathy before the reunion, and I said, ‘Okay, just don’t be defensive when you come in,’” Sutton revealed on Page Six’s Virtual RealiTea.
“I hadn’t spoken to her for a couple of days, and then the next thing I know, it was like, ‘oh gosh, well, she didn’t take my advice. Here she goes.’ But you know, Kathy is going to be Kathy,” she explained.
Sutton also addressed Kathy’s ultimatum to Bravo for season 13. Kathy has insisted that she won’t be back for another season if Lisa Rinna and Erika Jayne return.
“I don’t think any of us have that capability,” Sutton quipped. “I don’t want anything to do with that – it’s like playing God.”
Meanwhile, Kathy admitted at BravoCon 2022 that she was looking forward to the reunion despite it not going exactly to plan.
“I was like so excited I could not wait; I couldn’t wait, all the other girls, you know, most of them were like, ‘oh I’m nervous, I don’t want to do this,’ whatever, they dread it. I could not wait,” she said. “When you are talking your truth, and you finally get to say what happened. Because, as you know, with these shows, they’re an hour long, commercial time, so what is left, 45 minutes? And eight women. And I’m not one of the stars, so I’m just a friend, so I have the least amount to say.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is expected to return for season 13 in 2023.
