REAL Housewives of Beverly Hills star Sutton Stracke broke down in tears as she revealed her "dad died from suicide."
The Bravo star admitted she "still struggles" years after the tragedy.
During the latest episode of RHOBH, Sutton got emotional as she opened up about her late father.
Sutton got teary eyed as she revealed: “My dad committed suicide and my mom is a psychotherapist so it’s a tricky little situation there.
"My dad was mentally ill."
The 50-year-old continued: "He was depressed and it’s so silly because he died 18-years-ago but not a day goes by that I’m not thinking about him.”
The emotional moment came just one week after Sutton offered an apology to her co-star Crystal Minkoff after she was accused of making racially "insensitive" comments.
The RHOBH star previously compared Asian stereotyping to being called a redneck on last Wednesday's episode.
Sutton took to Twitter to apologize to her cast mate and her fans as she called her actions "disrespectful."
She wrote: "Despite Crystal and my strained relationship at the time, it was disrespectful to interrupt her and not listen to her express her truth."
"My life is blessed by the diversity of my relationships and I am committed to become a better listener to understand the painful realities experienced by people of color," she continued.
"I am sorry. I will do better and be better."
Sutton's apology followed am explosive argument between the two ladies on last week's episode of RHOBH.
The fight took place last year when the cast flew to Lake Tahoe for a girls' retreat.
After their co-star Kyle Richards reflected on a past fight she shared with Garcelle Beauvais over stereotyping, Crystal replied: “As someone who’s not white, when it hits you from stereotypes it can be so painful that you can’t see anything else.”
The 35-year-old, who is the first Asian American cast member on the series, added: “I’ve had friends who have said things to me — Asian comments and stuff like that —”
Sutton then inserted herself into the conversation as she referenced the difficulties of breaking out of "redneck" stereotypes after being raised in Georgia.
“Do you wanna talk about when I see dumbass rednecks on the TV and that’s supposed to be me?” she shouted.
