Thibault Christian Stracke was born to Claire Stracke and Dr. Richard Stracke, a Spanish teacher at the Davidson Fine Arts High School and an English professor at Augusta Stata University.

Her time on "RHOBH" also added income, but according to Sutton, she could not film as much of her personal life allegedly because of her husband's private lifestyle. "I think when you sign on to be a housewife, it really is your whole life that you're giving up to the audience," she said, as told by Heavy.
