Crystal Kung Minkoff is speaking out about the online hatred she endured after becoming one of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the show’s debut Asian American cast member. In a reunion episode, she revealed to her co-stars and Bravo anchor Andy Cohen the racial abuse she was subjected to from her fans, including “hundreds of texts a day” criticizing that she was Asian.
Kung Minkoff, 36, provides her thoughts on the problem to PEOPLE at the Gold House’s Gold Gala event on Saturday and adds, “It’s gotten better.” “But our season began, so I noticed a little bit more,” she adds, “but I am more prepared to manage it.” “And I’ve realized that I’ve always lived in Los Angeles. I grew raised in a very Chinese family, almost in a bubble.”
