After the latest episode of the Bravo reality series saw Sutton supporting Erika at her Pretty Mess hair extension event and inviting her into her home for a casual Popeyes lunch on silver platters, where they appeared to make progress in their efforts to understand each other better, Sutton explained why she decided to attend the hair event despite the lack of support for her own business.
“When I came into this group of women, I truly came in after my divorce. It had been a few years, and it took me a while to pick myself up, and I was inspired by this group of ladies. Everyone had a business, was working, and we were all supporting each other. It was very inspiring, and I remembered that, and I thought, ‘I am going to Erika’s hair extension event, even if there’s a beef.’ Because it’s the right thing to do,” Sutton revealed on the September 28 episode of the RHOBH: After Show.
While Sutton made the decision to support Erika, she pointed out that the support wasn’t reciprocated at the Cashmere & Caviar event she held at her namesake boutique last year. As RHOBH fans may have noticed, only Garcelle Beauvais and Crystal Kung-Minkoff were seen at the bash.
“I did a very big thing this year with my cashmere line and I did not have all of the ladies’ support. I did not. And [Garcelle] did not have all of the support for [her] book,” Sutton noted.
Still, she welcomed Erika into her home for a sit-down meal, and Erika felt that her efforts to put their troubled past behind them were well-received.
“I went there with an open heart and we attempted to connect and I went over with an open heart and an open mind,” she confirmed.
“I have to move on with my life and I have to move on with the relationships that I have in this group of women. I don’t know what is going to happen but truly in my heart of hearts, I want peace. I want resolution,” Erika continued of her intentions with Sutton and other members of the RHOBH cast. “A lot of hurtful things have been said between the two of us. I’m a fighter. I fight back, but I don’t want this, I don’t seek this sort of animosity. I want peace within my life and within this group of women.”
But after Erika acknowledged that she’ll have to “see how long it lasts” between herself and Sutton, Sutton made it clear she’s far from ready for a friendship with Erika.
“I can’t let it go and I don’t trust her,” she stated. “You try having someone say that they played you and then call you a terrible name. How do you move on from that ever? Do I enjoy her sometimes… Like, her company is kinda funny. I don’t wish her harm. But she’s not a friend… She never will be.”
