After consulting an attorney to help her navigate the legal scandal Erika Jayne was facing during the recently-aired episodes, Sutton has confirmed she’s studying for the LSATs and has plans to pursue a career in law.
Now, however, she’s diving headfirst into just that.
“I am starting to study with the Princeton Review for my LSATs that I’m going to take. I got a little inspired,” she admitted, noting that her legal dreams began long before she was cast on RHOBH.
“When I went to college, I wanted to go to law school. I studied political science,” Sutton shared. “That was my plan.”
Before moving to New York City to pursue a dance career, Sutton was an “A student” at Converse College in South Carolina.
“I was going to be this dancing attorney. We’ll see. I might miserably fail my LSATs and not go to law school. But it’s something I’m thinking about doing,” she explained.
Looking back at RHOBH season 11, Sutton said that while her disputes with Erika may have been “fun to watch” for viewers, “this is not a game” for the alleged victims of her and Thomas Girardi‘s supposed crimes, many of whom are owed millions.
“It’s important to remember that there are serious victims out there that need help, that need surgeries and it’s just important to remember that,” she said. “This is not a joke … They aren’t on a reality show. They’re at home in serious conditions.”
“She was there all day taping it. She doesn’t want to relive all the emotions she went through,” the source explained, adding that Erika “has had her fair share of the Housewives” for the moment.
“Now that she has a break from filming, she’s just taking time for herself, handling personal matters and focusing on her next business moves,” the source stated.
“I’m happy to say everything that I can say. Please understand, there are some things I cannot answer,” she explained. “But I will do my best to give every part of the story that I can. This is the toughest part of my life. I asked for an understanding that these things are complicated, that I was finding them out in real-time myself, and I don’t have all the answers and still do not have all the answers to this day.”
“I’m in an almost impossible situation. And anyone that has been wronged, I want them to be made whole. … I’m talking about the alleged victims of all of Tom’s alleged misdoings. And it’s important that people hear that from me,” Erika added.
