Sutton Stracke clapped back after Kyle Richards reportedly expressed her need for ‘space’ in her friendship with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star.

The fashion boutique owner also shaded Teddi Mellencamp, who recently accused Sutton of continually having a bottle of vodka in her purse.

Speaking with Us Weekly at BravoCon, in a clip shared by @byewighellodrama on Instagram, Sutton reacted to Kyle’s recent suggestion that she needs space from Sutton.

During an interview with the Two Ts in a Pod podcast earlier this month, Kyle explained why she was taking “a little break” from her friendship with Sutton.

“I started seeing the clips and I didn’t like the things I was hearing. So much focus about my marriage and my life… Like go try to meet somebody and worry about your own relationships,” Kyle said about Sutton. “Also she made a comment about Erika and her show in the press that didn’t sit well with me because I thought as a group… we’re all very supportive of each other’s endeavors. All of us show up for everybody’s things.”

“Okay, space away!” said Sutton. “I mean, I didn’t even know she said that … but okay. She probably needs space from a lot of people. I don’t know what I did.”

Garcelle Beauvais, who was also present in the interview, added, “I think [Kyle already] has been taking some space from you, and vice versa.”

“What did I do!?” asked Sutton.

Speaking on a BravoCon panel, Sutton claimed she’s “not a fan” of Teddi.

“I will make it real clear right now,” she went on, via @byewighellodrama. “There is not a bottle of vodka in my purse. Let’s just make it real clear, and I don’t appreciate that being said.”

She then called out Kyle for not standing up for her: “I don’t appreciate my friend not saying, ‘Teddi, come on, you know that’s not true.’ I don’t. Wasn’t nice. And it’s not true.”

However, castmates Erika Jayne and newbie Annemarie Wiley defended their friend Teddi, indicating that she’s a good person.

In a separate interview, Sutton was asked to further address Teddi’s ‘joke’ about the vodka. “Was it a joke?” she asked. “I don’t have a purse big enough for a bottle of vodka … and I don’t think it was a joke. I think it was trying to be mean.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 13 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
