Crystal Kung Minkoff wanted her voice to be heard on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In this week’s new episode, which aired on Wednesday, May 25 on Bravo, Crystal called out Dorit Kemsley for invalidating her feelings and making her feel “irrelevant.” But Dorit, who is coming off a terrifying home invasion, strongly disagreed with the second season Housewife. “It’s not true, Crystal,” Dorit responded. “That is not true.”
“It is,” Crystal retorted. “Get real.” Things got even more heated when Dorit asked Crystal if she was “out of her f***ing mind,” as Garcelle Beauvais stepped in to defend Crystal. “This is how she feels,” Garcelle explained. “Again, you’re not validating how she’s feeling.” But again, Dorit insisted she’s “trying to understand” Crystal’s feelings.
After more back-and-forth, Crystal decided she wanted to end the fighting because of what Dorit’s been going through. Crystal announced that she’s leaving to her fellow cast mates, including Sutton Stracke, Kyle Richards, and Erika Jayne. “This is not a safe space for me. I don’t feel good in this place,” Crystal shared.
Dorit tried apologizing, but Crystal continued to lash out at both her and Kyle. “You guys will never validate someone’s feelings unless you can understand it,” she explained. “That is the truth. I’ve expressed so much about my history and my pain, to tell you guys how I feel, and you guys don’t listen. You don’t care.” Crystal tried getting up to leave because everything’s “too dramatic,” while Dorit and Kyle trued to console her. Again, Garcelle reminded the women that they’re not hearing her out. Meanwhile, new Housewife Diana Jenkins said she’s Crystal’s “bodyguard,” so she also got up to leave.
“I’m not being heard,” Crystal said to Dorit. “I don’t know how else to explain it.” Diana ushered Crystal out of the building, as the rest of the women were left reeling as to what just went down.
