Teddi Mellencamp: Sutton Stracke is ‘Hypocritical’ In Erika Jayne Drama“I can’t imagine how challenging this has been for her. I’m proud that she’s been able to be so open. I think Erika’s excellent at being a really good friend to other people and I think it’s hard for her to let people in,” Teddi, 40, told Us Weekly on the Friday, September 3, episode of the “Getting Real with the Housewives” podcast. “I think that even though people may want more and every single crumb of detail, this is more than she ever has shared before and I think that goes to show how much she’s probably really been struggling.

“Watching [Erika] yell at [Sutton] … I might’ve left myself, had that happen to me. But this is, like, real stuff. It wasn’t silly fighting. This was really intense [with] the legalities of things,” Crystal told Us. “There was a lot going on, so maybe that’s probably why I was more quiet.

It’s unrealistic. So I was happy that … even if it was kind of fake in the moment, to me, what’s not fake is the ultimate intention of what that [apology] means.”
