Denise Richards joined The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for Season 9, and it didn’t take long for her to cause a stir! Fans of the show saw Season 10 revolve around Richards and the numerous dramas it brought with it. For one, there was a rumor Richards was cheating on her husband Aaron Phypers with his housewife Brandi Glanville — a claim she has since openly denied. “I didn’t have an affair,” she told the Washington Post in 2020.
That rumor then spawned a new feud with another housewife — longtime friend Lisa Rinna. While Richards denied the alleged affair with Glanville, Rinna apparently saw text messages proving the two women had indeed become intimate. Per People, the “Days of Our Lives” star then called Richards and accused her of lying about the affair and some other previous conversations. “I want to stand up for my friend,” Rinna said on an episode of the show (via People). “I want to be able to say, ‘You know what, Brandi, I don’t believe you.’
Given all the drama, it was hardly a surprise that Richards wanted out soon after Season 10. In September 2020, the “Jolene” star confirmed to Variety that she wouldn’t be returning for next season. The big question remains though – could she return to the show at some point?
Denise Richards might just be making a comeback
On September 1, Denise Richards appeared on Jeff Lewis’ SiriusXM show, where she admitted she was open to a comeback in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “Yeah, I always said that,” Richards told Lewis. “Never say never, you know.” When asked if the producers had reached out to her, Richards said no, quickly adding that she maintained her relationships with some of the housewives.
One person fans suspect Richards might not be interested in working with when she returns to “RHOBH” is Lisa Rinna. However, the ‘Wild Things’ star confirmed that it wouldn’t be a problem for her. “I would have no problem working with Lisa and filming with her. I never said I wouldn’t come back with her,” Richards clarified. And if you’re wondering if a reconciliation between the two women is in the books, Richards revealed that although Rinna apologized, they could no longer be friends. “I don’t think I would ever do that; I could never be close friends with her after what happened,” she said.
Richards also spoke through her OnlyFans account, revealing that her husband Aaron Phypers helps her create content for the social media platform. “I ask him, I show him things and I’m like, ‘What do you think?'” she added. Via Yahoo! News, Richards announced that she joined OnlyFans in June and has continued to share adult content ever since.
