Dorit Kemsley suggested that Sutton Stracke, a new “friend” of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, might be using her wealth to win friendships amongst the group. In a preview for the August 5 episode of RHOBH shared by All About the Real Housewives on August 4, Sutton was seen taking Dorit and their co-star, Kyle Richards, to a Dolce & Gabanna store in Rome Italy, where they were treated to a private shopping adventure.
“I told Mr. Dolce that I was coming to Rome and he said immediately ‘Come do private shopping; bring the girls,'” Sutton explained in a cast confessional, adding that she didn’t have to ask to be treated to such a luxurious outing.
After browsing the main area of the store, the women were introduced to Mario, the VIP Client Representative, who eventually took them into a private room of the venue. The room was filled with items he and his staff had hand-selected. Dorit and Kyle, who are certainly no strangers to luxury, appeared to be taken aback.
At another point in the preview clip, Sutton was seen asking a female employee of the store if she could send something as a gift.
“Anything for you,” the woman replied.
When the video flashed back to a clip from three months earlier, which featured Sutton sitting in a vehicle with co-star and longtime friend Lisa Rinna, Rinna was seen expressing excitement about their upcoming trip to Rome, and her potential visit to the home of Mr. Dolce. Sutton was also seen revealing to Lisa that the brand gifts her with a new tiara every year for her birthday.
While the women appeared to be impressed by Sutton ‘s major connections, Dorit was a bit suspicious of her intentions. She suggested in a cast confessional that the woman’s generosity was simply a ploy to get in with the women.
“First, she gives me a gorgeous handbag. Then I get the rain boots. Now, this experience,” Dorit explains. “It’s like, are you trying to buy your friendships? If she is, well, it’s nice to have friends in high places.”
As The Inquisitr previously reported, Dorit also commented on Sutton’s behavior back in May, when she told People Now that the new friend of the show came on a bit strong during their early moments together on the show.
“Sutton, I found some of the things she was coming out with early on to be surprising and shocking,” Dorit shared.
