The Dinner Party From Hell Part 2 really lived up to its name. After many Real Housewives of Beverly Hills episodes watching the ladies tap dance around Erika Jayne and her tall tales, Sutton Stracke tried to confronted her. Well, sort of. Sutton was in an impossible situation.
She didn’t believe Erika and some of her castmates also expressed doubt. But Sutton was left as the fall guy. Ultimately egged on by everyone at the dinner party who didn’t have the guts to really say anything. What ensued was Sutton finding herself on the receiving end of Erika’s wrath. After all, Erika famously said, “I’m coming for you” while pointing her finger in Sutton’s face.
Turns out, that almost drove Sutton right off the show. She ended up leaving the dinner party and contemplated leaving the show completely. Bravo Housewives Tea shared Sutton’s take on everything when she appeared with Garcelle Beauvais on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills After Show. Sutton remembered thinking of the confrontation, “I’m not being a baby about this. I’m out. This is not worth it.”
The host then asked her if she was just leaving the party or was she also thinking about leaving the friend group. Sutton responded, “Oh yeah. Yeah, I was leaving. I’m not going to have someone threaten me like that. Threaten my family like that. No, not worth it.”
When asked what changed her mind, Sutton admitted, “Probably Garcelle. I mean this is serious stuff. Which is why I brought it up in December.” Sutton is referencing when she got the ladies together outside of Erika to discuss Tom Girardi’s burn victim settlement. The settlement has still not been fully paid out to the victim and is part of the legal allegations of fraud against him.
I’m not really surprised by this admission from Sutton. Erika truly is unhinged right now. While her threats might be empty, her vitriol is real. And it’s impossible for anyone in the cast to really be true friends with her if she expects undying loyalty without the option of being questioned. Isn’t it her friends’ right to know what Erika is going through? Even if she doesn’t share everything about the lawsuit, all we’ve gotten out of Erika are crazy stories that don’t add up and a victim storyline.
It’s not a good luck. And we shouldn’t be in danger of losing an excellent housewife like Sutton all because Erika can’t handle a little heat.
