Sutton Stracke on Crystal Kung Minkoff feud: 'We're both sorry'

June 17 (UPI) -- Sutton Stracke says she and Crystal Kung Minkoff are "both sorry" about their feud on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

The 49-year-old television personality discussed her issues with Minkoff during Wednesday's episode of Watch What Happens Live.


Stracke and Minkoff clashed during the cast's trip to Lake Tahoe in the June 9 episode of RHOBH. Minkoff took issue with Stracke entering her room to return her coat while Minkoff was naked.

"I just felt like my boundaries were crossed. I just felt kind of like my space was violated a little bit," Minkoff said.

On WWHL, Stracke said she was not aware that Minkoff was naked.

"I knocked on the door and said, 'Crystal, are you awake?' I could hear her talking and so -- we were all going -- it's a girl's trip, and so we're all going in and out of each other's rooms," Stracke said.

Stracke and Minkoff previously clashed in the May 26 episode after Stracke, who is White, interrupted and interjected as Minkoff, who is Asian, discussed the "painful" effects of racial stereotyping.

Stracke later apologized to Minkoff on Instagram, saying it "was disrespectful to interrupt her and not listen to her express her truth." Minkoff accepted Stracke's apology.


"Thank you, Sutton. Your apology means a lot to me, and I'm sure it means a lot to many others with similar lived experiences," Minkoff wrote.


On WWHL, Stracke said it "100 percent" meant a lot to her to have Minkoff accept her apology.

"I think we both felt a lot," Stracke said. "Watching the episode, I think ... we're both sorry."

Minkoff is the first Asian American cast member on RHOBH, which is in its 11th season on Bravo. The series co-stars Kyle Richards, Lissa Rinna, Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley and Garcelle Beauvais.
