Back to school? Sutton Stracke is hoping to get her law degree. Find out how the RHOBH showdown over Erika Jayne’s legal woes played into the socialite’s decision.

Sutton Stracke tangled with Erika Jayne over legal issues

Erika Jayne went public with her divorce from Tom Girardi on election day, 2020. She intentionally chose that day, thinking her news would fly under the radar. How wrong she was! Not only did media outlets pick up the story, speculation arose immediately about possible infidelity.

Things got more complicated between the estranged couple. A month later, a class-action lawsuit leveled shocking allegations against Tom Girardi and the RHOBH star.

The lawsuit alleges that Tom Girardi stole millions meant for his law firm’s clients. Furthermore, the suit claims that the money was used to fund his and Erika’s extravagant lifestyle. All of this was playing out as cameras were rolling for Season 11 of RHOBH.

Amid allegation after allegation against the Girardis, Sutton Stracke was the only one to express their doubt about Erika’s innocence to the “XXpen$ive” singer’s face. Therefore, Stracke took the brunt of Erika’s wrath. 

However, fans have been praising Sutton for asking the tough questions while the other stars tiptoe around Erika Jayne.

Fans might finally get answers during Season 11 reunion

Both Andy Cohen and the ladies of RHOBH have assured Bravoholics that Erika will provide answers during the reunion. Part one of the reunion focused on Dorit and Lisa Rinna’s issues with Garcelle Beauvais.

However, Erika and Tom’s divorce was the hot topic for the trailer for part two. In a first in Bravo history, the RHOBH reunion is broken into four episodes.

Sutton Stracke reveals why she’s seeking a law degree

Sutton Stracke was open about speaking to a lawyer about how Erika Jayne’s legal troubles could possibly affect her. She faced a lot of pushback from her co-stars for seeking a lawyer’s advice. However, at the reunion, several others admitted that they also sought advice from their lawyer-friends.

If Sutton gets her wish, she won’t need to seek advice from others. Rather, she will be the one doling out legal advise as a lawyer.

That’s right, Sutton Stracke hopes to get her law degree. During a recent chat with Page Six, the reality star revealed that she’s currently studying for her LSATs. The test is a requirement for getting into law school.

While Stracke confirms that Erika Jayne’s legal woes played a part, she’s always had an interest in law. In fact, her initial plan was to attend law school and be “this dancing attorney.” However, her plans changed and she ultimately moved to New York City as a dancer.

But now it seems she’s reconsidering her original dream to be a lawyer. Sutton Stracke wouldn’t be the first reality star to pursue a law career. Keeping Up With The Kardashian star Kim Kardashian enrolled in law school after years of being on the popular reality show.
