New cast member Sutton Stracke came out swinging right away during the premiere episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 10. She showed off her (uncute) custom-made Dolce & Gabbana bra. She dissed Rihanna’s Fenty line for not being high-end enough for her. Sutton also made a funny Devil Wears Prada-esque comment dissing Teddi Mellencamp for her (basic) black romper.
During her second episode, she shamelessly bragged about wearing couture at her store opening. And, let’s not forget that infamous scene in the trailer where she calls Teddi “boring.” This woman has it in her to stir the pot. So, why is she not a full-time cast member? By the way, she was originally slated to be Real Housewife. Then, she got that pre-season demotion to Friend of the Housewives status.
Sutton addressed this in a recent interview with Access. The Georgia native began, “Well, what I think what happened, unfortunately, is just in filming during the season, I wasn’t able to film as much of my personal life as I would have liked. And, so it’s not the full package.”
Sutton continued, “I think when you sign on to be a Housewife, it really is your whole life that you’re giving up to the audience and I wasn’t able to do that. But, hopefully, next season we’re gonna get to see all aspects of my life and it will be all good.”

It’s super obvious that Sutton was trying to be careful with her words there; i.e. not piss off her ex-husband. The interviewer kept pushing though, asking if Sutton was the one who decided not to show more of her life. Sutton said, “I wasn’t able to film with my children. They’re a big part of my life, so that was it.” This most likely translates to her husband not signing a release form for their minor children to be a part of a reality show. This is something we’ve seen a lot on Real Housewives shows, like with Tamra Judge’s kids.
But, apparently, Sutton didn’t find out until way late in the game. She participated in the cast photoshoot and even filmed some taglines for the introduction. Clearly, this demotion was a pretty last-minute decision. Sutton was asked, “When did you find out you became a Friend of?”
Instead of actually answering the question, Sutton remarked, “I filmed the whole way. I feel like I’m full-time. I just don’t carry a diamond. But, it’s all good. It’s been such a great experience and I’ve had like the best time. I have no regrets. At all.” Clearly, she’s being very careful with her answers, hoping her ex will sign that release for her kids to appear. Or at least that’s how it comes across to me.

Sutton admitted that she’s gunning for a full-time spot next season. She declared, “I always say I have enough diamonds, but there’s always room for one more.” Don’t we all?
