Last month, The real housewife of Beverly Hills The cast members and fans were amazed by the satin streak.
As was mocked on social media, the Slutons (Sutton fans) have been in a rough spot this season, as they have seen him go from bad to worse.
Most recently, Crystal Kung Minkoff hinted at something “dark” that Sutton said, but declined to specify.
Is Crystal trying to protect Sutton without revealing it … or is it doing more damage by holding it back? Is it all about, anyway?
According to Crystal, Sutton said something very “dark” when they first met.
Garcel came up with the possibility (albeit indirectly) that Crystal deliberately set up Satin for their first on-camera interaction.
But Crystal cites this alleged statement from Satin as a form of self-defense.
“When you and Sutton got your thing, I thought no matter what she said – she could say blue sky – you’re going to say, ‘Are you that girl?'” Garsell theorized.
He continued: “Because I felt it was a setup.”
This is when Crystal revealed: “Much more was said before, it was too dark.”
The women were astonished, Erica looking particularly stunned.
Interestingly, Kyle was there at the time of what Sutton said, but apparently didn’t remember.
Crystal said it could be because Kyle was drunk at the time. However, he does not want to get the specification.
A few days later, Kyle Sutton was asked very directly how things were going with him and Crystal.
Sutton thought things were going well, so Kyle opened up about Crystal’s hints about a “dark” interaction.
“Okay, I won’t say anything terrible,” Sutton insisted. Garsell told him that, according to Crystal, hearing this could change their dynamics.
Eventually, Crystal was basically forced to deal with it.
This time, he would simply say that Sutton’s comments were “problematic.”
Kyle, meanwhile, claims that he remembers the conversation, but doesn’t remember anything bad … when Crystal counters that Kyle may not have noticed what Garsell might have done.
Garsell wanted to know what it was, but Crystal refused to look for it.
One thing he will point out is that it is “forgivable”, which makes things a bit narrower by admitting.
Kyle worries that they won’t be able to move forward until it’s resolved, but Sutton is better off moving forward without saying anything out loud.
Kyle rightly points out that the opacity of the crystal is forcing people to guess the worst … though again, even Sutton doesn’t want anything specific.
Erica, meanwhile, suggested that if it was as bad as the crystal meant, it probably shouldn’t be raised at all.
That is, an understandable perspective from Erica at this moment in her life that has been considered.
We don’t know what Crystal is talking about.
Whether Kyle actually remembers it, or because of alcoholism – or privilege – as Crystal claims if he “empties it” is still up in the air.
It seems messy and like this kind of thing that will blow a lot of people away. But, at the same time, we would rather know the truth.
