RHOBH's Crystal Kung-Minkoff Suggests Garcelle's Drama is "for TV" Laughs at Kyle, and Says She's "So [Disappointed]" With Erika, Plus Agrees Pool Story Was "Not Problematic"

Crystal Kung-Minkoff targeted Garcelle Beauvais‘ made-for-TV drama on Wednesday night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live.

Following the latest episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, during which Crystal faced drama with both Garcelle and Kyle Richards, who shaded her as a “dramatic millennial” and suggested she was “gaslighting” amid her “dark” tiff with Sutton Stracke, Crystal blamed Garcelle for causing drama between her and the other ladies by suggesting she was being calculated when she made her “tell me you’re that girl” comment last year.

“A hundred percent,” Crystal told Andy Cohen on the June 8 episode of WWHL after he asked her if she blamed Garcelle for the drama.

Then, on the WWHL: After Show, she continued to discuss her issues with Garcelle after a fan asked about Garcelle saying she’s no friend to Sutton.

“Well Garcelle texts me every day so I’m not sure what that means but I am a good friend and that’s probably why they invite me out like every week so not sure about that.. maybe it’s just for TV,” she noted.

As Crystal faced off with Garcelle over Garcelle’s suggestion that Sutton’s comment about her racially diverse pool gatherings was not as “dark” as Crystal made it seem, she also butted heads with Kyle. And when another person asked her how she felt about Kyle writing off her feelings about the situation, Crystal admitted that she didn’t take her RHOBH castmate’s behavior to heart.

“Um, speaking from her, [it meant] absolutely nothing,” she stated. “[I’m] just laughing at her.”

Also on the WWHL: After Show, Andy mentioned a cryptic post Crystal shared on Instagram ahead of Wednesday’s show, which was captioned, “Don’t underestimate me. I know more than I say, think more than I speak, and notice more than you realize.”

After Andy asked Crystal what the post meant, she told the host, “I know a lot and I keep it close to me and that’s who I am.”

As the segment continued, Crystal said that Erika Jayne saying she couldn’t express remorse for her and Thomas Girardi‘s alleged victims due to how it could be interpreted was “so disappointing,” and she suspected Sutton and Lisa Rinna had heard from “each other” that she likes to be friends with “most powerful person” in a group.

“We don’t have any mutual friends,” she revealed, later noting that if her friends are “really powerful, so be it.”

“I could be so shady right now,” she added, seemingly shading Sutton’s own efforts to gain powerful friends.

When Crystal was then asked if it was hypocritical for her to take offense at her co-stars for questioning her use of certain words when she questioned Kyle’s use of the term “gaslighting,” Crystal said it was not.

“No… It’s because she doesn’t know what that means,” Crystal explained.

Meanwhile, during the live broadcast of WWHL, Crystal agreed that Sutton’s pool story was “not problematic” while hinting that there was much more to the story that fans didn’t see.

“That story was not problematic. Look, Sutton and I, she and I know what was said and we’ve spoken at length about it and she has apologized to me privately and publicly… because that conversation was a lengthy one and I’m choosing, and I chose back then, to believe her in her apology and to move forward,” Crystal said. “That’s who I am and that’s what I want to do and I believe her apology and that’s where I’m at.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 12 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
