Sutton Stracke rented Kyle Richards‘ home in 2020 as her home was being renovated. And, during an interview with Page Six on May 18, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” cast member, who was upgraded to a full-time position for season 11, admitted that doing so actually brought the two of them closer.
“Kyle and I are very close,” Stracke said. “Doesn’t hurt that I’m living in her house, but Kyle’s a very open person, and she’s also very down-to-earth and what you see is what you get, and she’s very nurturing as well.”
Kyle Richards Was A ‘True Friend’ To Sutton Stracke
According to Stracke, she moved into Richards’ home in Bel Air after going through a rocky year in early 2020. And, while Richards did become her landlord at that point, she also became someone she went to for advice.
“I’ve sold my house. My daughter [Porter] went to college. Like, all of these things that she’s done as well. So, she’s kind of coached me through them as a friend. And I really appreciate everything that she’s done for me. It’s real. It’s not fake and phony. It’s like a true friend,” Stracke gushed.
Sutton Stracke’s Home Renovations Took Longer Than Expected
Although Stracke didn’t intend to be living in Richards’ house for long, her home renovations have taken a lot longer than she previously expected.
“The only thing that we talk about is, she laughs at me for thinking, like, I’m Pollyanna,” she joked. “I’m like, ‘My house is going to be ready tomorrow!’ And she’s like, ‘Sutton, your house is going to be ready in 2025!’”
As for what fans can expect from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” season 11, Stracke said she and her cast mates “all brought our own little pinch of drama.”
No ‘RHOBH’ Cast Member Is ‘Drama-Free’
“No one’s drama-free. I think we’re all kind of in the drama craft this season,” Stracke admitted.
Continuing on, Stracke said that she was happy to see that the drama of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” season 11 wasn’t based around one person.
“It’s a good thing because it’s not one-person-centric. This is really an all-cast event,” she noted. “Everybody is kind of mixed in something and has their own thing going, which is fun. It’s exciting. We all, at the end of the day, care for each other and want each other to be happy and successful.”
Sutton Stracke Teases ‘Trial And Tribulation’
