At this point, we know that Sutton Stracke WILL be returning to The Real Housewives of
the L.A. Area Beverly Hills in some capacity, but in what capacity, remains uncertain. Last season, along with fellow newcomer Garcelle Beauvais, Sutton was reportedly cast as a full time housewife, but because her ex husband would not allow their children to be filmed, Stracke’s role was reduced to “friend of”. However, there is increasing speculation of late that Sutton has been given a diamond for the upcoming season season 11. Perhaps adding fuel to the speculation, on a recent WWHL with Andy Cohen appearance (via zoom), Beauvais revealed that Sutton was by far the biggest pot stirrer by far, the most self-absorbed, and the most “inquisitive” about costar Erika Jayne’s pending divorce.
Fans will recall that Sutton was introduced to the group by costar and longtime
friend social acquaintance Lisa Rinna, and despite sharing very little of her home/personal life, Sutton created quite an impact right out of the gate; namely by calling a very pregnant costar Teddi Mellencamp “a little boring” (no arguments here). The couture queen of ugly fashion also famously squabbled with costar self-appointed fashion icon Dorit Kemsley.
The trailer for the highly anticipated season 11 is expected to drop in the next coming days. Following the departures of full time housewives Denise Richards and Teddi Mellencamp, Stracke will be joining Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, and Garcelle Beauvais, along with appearances by Kyle’s sister (and mother to Paris), Kathy Hilton.
