After telling Teddi Mellencamp, 42, and Tamra Judge, 56, on a recent episode of their podcast that the honor went to “Sutton,” Kyle, 54, looked back on her over-the-top meltdown at the Magic Mike show in Las Vegas and explained why she decided to take a break from their friendship.
“But, of course, she would only take it out on me,” Kyle noted, explaining that Sutton was initially excited to go to the Magic Mike performance.
According to Kyle, Sutton’s meltdown had to do with jealousy that her costars got called up on stage during the performance while she wasn’t.
“I don’t know why she got so offended. I have my theory. She was supposed to get up there originally. They asked us all in advance… I think she was expecting to cause she was told that and then she wasn’t,” Kyle suspected. “It was supposed to be [Crystal Kung Minkoff], [Erika Jayne], and Sutton… I don’t know why Sutton didn’t go up with them. They later said we were going to have you go up later… But then she said no it wasn’t that.”
According to Kyle, Sutton seemed to be “offended by the whole thing,” which she found hypocritical considering Sutton “hired a stripper for Crystal’s birthday.”
Although Kyle confirmed that Sutton reached out to her after her meltdown, adding that they “were fine after that,” she hasn’t liked what she’s seen from Sutton thus far on the show.
“I started seeing the clips and I didn’t like the things I was hearing. So much focus about my marriage and my life… Like go try to meet somebody and worry about your own relationships,” Kyle advised of single Sutton. “Also she made a comment about Erika and her show in the press that didn’t sit well with me because I thought as a group… we’re all very supportive of each other’s endeavors. All of us show up for everybody’s things.”
“It’s Garcelle’s movie, they’re always so supportive of my projects. Sutton’s store. We show up, we support her, I shop there, I buy things from there. She made some comment like putting down Erika and her show in Vegas. It was so mean-spirited. That I was like, ‘That is showing me a whole other side,’” Kyle said. “You don’t do that with someone’s livelihood. And that really, really bothered me and I was like, ‘That’s so mean. There’s no excuse for doing something like that’ … Between that and her comments about my marriage, I was like okay I need a little break.”
At that point, Teddi mentioned that Erika recently accused Sutton of not being supportive of Kyle amid her marriage drama with Mauricio Umansky, 53, and Kyle seemed to agree.
“I was the first one who bonded with her. I really liked her so that’s why it hurt me more,” she explained. “I do like her and we do have a genuine friendship. She’s fun and we do make each other laugh… So when she came at me about my marriage in this sort of like almost like I had done her wrong or something, I felt attacked and cornered about my marriage — and on camera by the way, instead of off-camera saying, ‘Are you okay?’”
“I was thinking, ‘Why are they acting like they’re mad at me that I’m going through this hard time? Why are they waiting till the cameras are here to ask me about this?’” she added.
