The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been dramatic from day one. Even though few of the women currently starring on the show have been around since the beginning, fans loved the friendship between Garcelle Beauvais and Crystal Kung Minkoff. They seemed to hit it off and become fast friends, but things were not the same between the two. Their friendship seems almost forced if you can even call it a friendship at this point. It’s a question fans keep asking, though. Where does Garcelle stand with Crystal Kung Minkoff?
It’s Crystal Kung Minkoff Against Sutton
If you go through the motions trying to figure out what went wrong with these women, there is little doubt that the friendship between Garcelle and Crystal is strained following the accusations Crystal made against Sutton Starcke. The problem is this: No one knows what was said. Crystal Kung Minkoff has alluded to the fact that Sutton made some kind of racial slur at the end of the previous season following the reunion – and she cannot let it go. She will not, however, disclose what it is that she is accusing Sutton of saying.
How does this apply to Garcelle? Well, it turns out the entire situation is he said/she said. Naturally, these women love to take sides, and Garcelle has sided with Sutton. She doesn’t feel that her friend said what Crystal had accused her of, and we are dying to know what she is accusing Sutton of saying. While Garcelle certainly has not been directly involved, the fact that she has stood with Sutton on this one seems to have caused a rift in her friendship with Crystal.
Where Does Garcelle Stand with Crystal Kung Minkoff Now?
The problem, according to Garcelle, is that you can’t really put anything to bed on this show. When you move on and move past a moment, it’s all on camera. Unfortunately, not everyone is as kind to the camera when no one else is around – and that can cause some problems. So, while this was all hashed out and worked through months ago, it’s all coming to light again. The apologies and forgiveness are falling to the wayside based on the fact that everyone is allowing the feelings to come out again based on the show airing this all again.
Essentially, these women put this to bed, and now they are all reliving every moment of it again – old feelings come back. They are not always good ones, either. According to Garcelle Beauvais, “I think re-watching it, new feelings emerge. New cuts are open. And so it’s hard because you do it, and sometimes you resolve things, and then you watch it back, and it’s like, ‘Oh?’ So I think that’s what’s happening to a lot of us.” It does sound like a difficult thing to do.
How Does Crystal Feel About Garcelle?
On the flip side of things, Crystal doesn’t have many nice things to say about Garcelle right now. They may have made up at some point, but Crystal’s feelings are not done. She is a little more open about where she stands with her friend, and she is not making any excuses about the way she thinks. Andy Cohen asked her during a special if she felt that this drama – that ended so long ago – was caused by Garcelle. Crystal’s response was, “One hundred percent,” and she left it at that. She feels that the matter was put to bed but that Garcelle brought it back.
Other sources have suggested that Crystal feels Garcelle is a fake friend. That she likes to cause drama and trouble for fun and that she is doing all she can to make the ratings better by bringing drama to the show. She’s got some people on her side, but she’s seemingly not happy until everyone is on her side. At the end of the day, though, these are housewives. They are all women with strong personalities from strong backgrounds with strong opinions, and they do not back down. They are meant to butt heads and see the conflict through – and they do not disappoint.
Will They Ever Resolve it?
Perhaps, in the future, they can work through this. However, it doesn’t seem entirely likely at the moment. You have two women who are firm in their opinions of what went down and what transpired, and they’re not in the market to back down. It’s unlikely either will cave. Perhaps there is a chance one of them will agree to disagree at some point.
