In “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Season 12 Episode 8, Sutton Stracke had an intense conversation with Diana Jenkins. Kyle Richards joined the discussion, repeatedly placing her hands on Stracke’s shoulder and arms.
During Season 12 Episode 16, Stracke informed her castmates that she was unhappy that they weren’t defending her when Erika Jayne called her “ab**** f***** c***”. Jenkins replied, “But you’re one,” which made Jayne laugh. After that, Richards put her hand on Stracke’s leg.
On September 10, 2022, a Reddit user shared a photo of Richards and Stracke from Season 12 Episode 16 on the Bravo Real Housewives subreddit. The commentator said they didn’t appreciate the ‘Halloween’ actress’ habit of touching Stracke.
“Kyle needs to keep her hands to herself. She didn’t try to comfort Sutton here, she interrupts her. I’m going to look for this now,” reads the caption of the post.
Several Reddit users also shared their thoughts on the matter.
“It really bothered me when she did it while Sutton and Diana were talking at Rinna’s party (I think??). She was so helpful!!! Worse than this episode I think!” shared a commenter.
“No, it was seriously bizarre. she shook her. idk why Sutton never brought it up as I would have been furious. I swear the women on bras get away with that much. I can’t imagine Kyle getting away with that unscathed in another franchise,” added another.
“Kyle can’t keep her hands off Sutton. It’s disgusting. She did the same with Brandi [Glanville], and then pretend it was Brandi who touched her first. If she gets hit with a lawsuit, maybe she’ll stop taking people’s hands,” commented another person.
“Kyle needs to stop touching people when situations are emotional and tense. It’s just inappropriate, especially at shows where physical altercations take place. She’s been in an altercation in front of the camera before, so she needs to watch her hands more,” one commenter said.
“Kyle has to stop touching. I wish Sutton would knock her hands off or grab them and throw them back at her,” said one Reddit user.
“The point is it probably hurts Sutton, but he tries to keep his cool, but eventually Sutton will gasp and yell for you not to touch me or take your hands off me, and there’s Kyle’s chance to kill Sutton.” to make it look loose again. She’s constantly provoking her,” wrote one Bravo fan.
“I yelled ‘Stop touching her!’ On my screen 😆’, a RHOBH fan sounded.
During a September 2022 appearance on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” Kyle Richards spoke about interacting with her co-stars during the Season 12 reunion special, which was filmed on September 9. A fan called and asked the mother of four, “which of the other women are you least looking forward to seeing again at the upcoming reunion.” She replied “so much” before making it clear that she was joking. She hinted that she failed to resolve her issues with her sister, Kathy Hilton, in Season 12.
“It’s going to be difficult with my sister. We’ve been through such hard times on the show. I’ve had some issues with Erika [Jayne] and [Lisa] Rinna towards the end. And I had to apologize to Garcelle, which I already did, so I guess we’re okay. So I don’t know,” Richards said.
