Bee Garcelle Beauvais55th birthday party, Erika Jayne told the actress’s 14-year-old son to “get the fuck out.” Her comment came right after she was scolded for flirting with Garcelle’s other son who is married.
After Erika apologized for her behavior and admitted to mixing too much alcohol and drugs, Garcelle forgave her. Everything seemed fine…until the episode dropped. Many fans became enraged at Erika’s behavior (although Garcelle seemed fine afterward), and they knocked down any castmate who showed her condolences.
Speaking with Us Weekly, co-star Sutton Stracke shared her thoughts on the drama.
“I’ve said this before, Garcelle is a very courteous person,” said the fashion boutique owner. “I think she may have let it” [Erika] a little too easy.”
In an interview on July 11 with the same outlet, Garcelle also spoke about the situation. “It’s a shame that had to happen,” she said. ‘But he’s good. He is good.”
However, the actress admitted that it was “very tough” to see her son in the middle of the drama. “That’s definitely a border crossing,” Garcelle said. “Doubtless.”
In her own interview, Sutton suggested there is a double standard. “If I’d done something like that, I’d still get it,” she said. “These ladies would never have let me forget.”
Sutton also spoke about Erika’s actions regarding drinking.
“I just don’t trust anything” [with her] because I don’t know what’s real and what’s not. I wasn’t there Diana [Jenkins]“Christmas and look, I was like, ‘Okay, that’s different behaviour,'” said the 50-year-old. “In Mexico we are in Mexico. … It’s a touchy subject for me with my father’s suicide and taking antidepressants and drinking, which is typical of depression [and] if that was something that was going on I would start to worry.”
However, Sutton said she and her co-star are “not in that place” where she can “go up and say something about it”. “I, that’s just not a good idea. I think I’ll just stay away from it… [We] have no friendship.”
The star added: “We can be very cordial and that’s all. … Right now I’m fine with where we are. We can make funny comments and we can sit at the table together. And I think that’s a good place for us. It’s like, it’s good, good rest.”
However, Sutton claimed she would be “an idiot” if she “trusted” Erika in the same way again.
The idea of Sutton discussing “trust” is amusing to some fans, who feel she is not very reliable. While many viewers enjoy watching Sutton hurl mud at Erika, others wonder if this is her only storyline. In fact, both Sutton and Garcelle have been accused of being obsessed with the 51-year-old singer — watching her every move and nitpicking every one of her words.
If the accusation is true, how long will the obsession last?
