During the previous week’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” new cast member Diana Jenkins got into an argument with Sutton Stracke, during which she declared that she was ready to take on the role of “the new villain.” Now, original housewife Kyle Richards is dishing the details of the blowout to Insider.
During the eighth episode of season 12, Jenkins and Stracke engaged in a verbal exchange during Garcelle Beauvais’ birthday party. During the exchange, Jenkins referred to Stracke as “boring” and “artificial,” while Stracke referred to Jenkins as “soulless.”
During the course of their conversation, Jenkins asked Stracke, “Do you want me to butt head you?” at one point. When discussing an encounter with Stracke to costars Kyle Richards and Dorit Kemsley in the prior episode, Jenkins used language that was strikingly similar to what she used in this one. Jenkins stated that there was a possibility that she would have received a headbutt.
The conflict that arose between Jenkins and Stracke was sparked by the cast’s vacation to Punta de Mita, Mexico, which was covered in the episodes that came before it. Jenkins was moved to tears during the sixth episode’s intense moment at the dinner table when Stracke screamed down Jenkins so that she could finish making her point.
Later, in episode seven, Stracke asserted that Jenkins had disallowed her to sit with her on the plane flight back to Beverly Hills and that she had flown alone.
Fans have voiced their disapproval of Jenkins’ use of threatening language on social media, and now Richards has weighed in on the debate.
“Someone suggesting that head butting is acceptable behavior is obviously incorrect. Never, “Richards revealed in an exclusive interview with Insider.
The reality TV personality continued by saying, “I can’t defend a lot of things people say and do on this program,” and went on to clarify that a lot of the situations that occur on the show are dependent upon one’s point of view.
“That’s the crux of the matter. You were able to witness Sutton’s response when the break-in involving Dorit took place “as Richards put it. “She mentioned that her designer was going to be arriving soon. In a circumstance similar to that one, I found myself thinking, “Wow, that was offensive to me.” And other individuals reacted by saying things such as, “Well, you can’t expect her to feel the way you do.””
After the eighth episode of “RHOBH,” Kyle Richards is “sorry” for Diana Jenkins.
It seemed as though Jenkins was going to take on the role of the new “RHOBH” villain, who in episode eight says to Stracke, “You need a new villain? Here I am.”
Richards stated that she is aware that Jenkins is “getting a lot of hatred after last week’s episode” on social media, but she revealed to Insider why she feels bad for the new cast member. Richards said she is aware that Jenkins is “receiving a lot of hate after last week’s episode.”
“The issue is with reality television, you can love someone who is not such a terrific person, and you can despise someone who is truly actually a decent human being,” Richards remarked. “The reality is that you can love someone who is not such a fantastic person.” “I constantly feel bad… Since Diana is just starting out on the show, I’m not sure if what she says doesn’t always come through very well on camera or what it is exactly… My only information is that she has always been nothing but nice and lovely to me personally, attentive, and incredibly kind to the charities that I support.”
Richards continued, “I just feel horrible when someone’s new and I’m like, oh my gosh, you signed on to do this and you’re just being dragged, and these folks have never met you.” Richards said he felt bad because he felt bad for the new person.
Following the cliffhanger that was left by the close of the eighth episode, the conclusion of the argument that Jenkins and Stracke were having will air this week.
In the United States, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” airs every Wednesday on Bravo. The following day, episodes of the show are made available to stream on Hayu in the United Kingdom and elsewhere across the world.
