‘RHOBH’: Sutton Stracke Claps Back at Teddi Mellencamp for Claiming She Researched Show
Sutton Stracke is a newbie on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The southern bell has caused an impact in season 10 for being incredibly blunt with her co-stars. One of the fellow Housewives that she has not clicked with is with Teddi Mellencamp. Stracke hit a nerve when she called the accountability coach boring and things have not been great since.
What did Teddi Mellencamp say?
During one of the first episodes of RHOBH Season 10, the ladies were at a dinner event organized by Kyle Richards in her home. Lisa Rinna suggested they play a game and go around the table to say one misconception they had of each other.
Stracke was sitting next to Mellencamp and when it was the former’s turn, she said that she initially thought the latter was boring. At the time, Mellencamp was pregnant and the party planner also mentioned that, which is a sensitive subject to the star.
“‘And then pregnant, Gold help us…,’ is what got me,” Mellencamp clarified on Twitter. “I’ve been very open about my fertility struggles. So for somebody to come in with her ready-to-wear [dress] and put negativity on, it really upset me.”
Mellencamp started crying during the dinner scene and had to walk away to regain her composure.
“If I broke down and cried every time I was called boring, Dove [her daughter] would need to swaddle me five times a day,” Mellencamp added.
In real life, Mellencamp blasted Stracke and claimed she must’ve researched the show before joining. Her theory behind this assertion is because some RHOBH fans have called her boring before.
“There’s more that she says that actually really sets me off,” Mellencamp told ET. “But I was like, Sutton, c’mon! Do your research somewhere other than Twitter. Like, maybe try talking to me for more than 10 seconds and not about couture and let’s see where we go.”
Did Sutton Stracke research ‘RHOBH?’
Stracke denies having gone the extra length to research dirt on Mellencamp and claims she didn’t know fans calling her boring was a “thing.”
“I heard that,” Stracke told ET of Mellencamp accusing her of researching. “Teddi, I love you, but I have three children and I don’t have time to do that. And I’m opening a store. No. That is the furthest from the truth. And actually it was rather a little bit offensive to me. I’m just telling you the truth.”
“No, I didn’t research,” she added. “I am only just now beginning to understand this whole Twitter game. Like, I just don’t know. I lived in a bubble for 17 years. Come on!”
Stracke has been scrutinized for coming off snobby on the show. The new Bravo star said that it took a bit to adjust to the dynamic and looking back, she doesn’t like everything she’s seen of herself.
“I don’t like a lot of what I saw of myself [on the show so far], either,” Stracke explained. “But I know who I am and that’s not, like, all there is. I think that’s just, like, a defense mechanism in a way, maybe.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
