Erika Jayne and Sutton Stracke's feud was one of the most tense storylines of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills -- and one that nearly led Stracke to quit her role on the show.

During an appearance on Us Weekly's podcast, Getting Real With the Real Housewives, earlier this month, Stracke was asked if she ever questioned her future with the show due to the drama she faced with Jayne throughout season 11.

“Yeah, I did [think of quitting] and not because of the show, it was just because of the threat, and I didn’t like it at all,” Stracke said.

During Kathy Hilton's dinner party, Jayne threatened Stracke after she called her a liar and repeatedly questioned her about what she potentially knew about her estranged husband Thomas Girardi's alleged fraud crimes against his former clients.

"It took it to a level that I wasn’t comfortable with, but we have such a great production team and also I’ve got great friends on that show, and they just were like, ‘Come on.’ So, they lifted me up pretty quickly,” Stracke recalled.

"I wasn’t scared, like, scared for my life,” Stracke clarified. “I just didn’t like the behavior.”

In December 2020, after Jayne suddenly filed for divorce from her husband after over two decades of marriage, the two of them were accused of embezzling $2 million in settlement funds meant for family members of plane crash victims.

Jayne and Girardi also faced a number of lawsuits after their split. And, understandably, Stracke had some questions for Jayne about these topics throughout Season 11.

"There were just a few things that I was like, ‘Look, this is what I’ve heard.’ And so I was just bringing that up as a point,” Stracke told Us Weekly of the questions she asked her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast mate. “I don’t need to be vindicated at all. That’s not my nature. I don’t need to be proven right. I was just stating facts.”

Jayne didn't respond well to Stracke's questions and felt she was unfair in her assessments.
