Nicollette Sheridan maybe a Desperate Housewife but she isn’t interested in becoming a Real Housewife.
The actress, who is most famous for the show that inspired the Real Housewives, just so happens to be the ex-wife of two Beverly Hills Housewives’ husbands. Lisa Rinna‘s hubby Harry Hamlin and Denise Richards’ husband Aaron Phypers were both married to Nicollette. Crazy, right?
Nicollette became a hot topic after she was mentioned on this past week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
It all started when Denise Richards revealed that her then-boyfriend, and now husband, Aaron was technically still married to Nicollette which shocked fellow Housewives Dorit Kemsley,Teddi Mellencamp, Camille Grammar and Erika Girardi.
That’s when Rinna swooped in a dropped an even bigger bombshell.
“Harry was married to her 30 years ago,” Rinna explained to the group, who were visibly shocked by the news.
“The story is, she went to a Michael Bolton concert at the Hollywood Bowl — and left with Michael Bolton!” Rinna explained.
Despite the drama surrounding the end of Harry and Nicollette’s marriage, Rinna is thankful for it all.
“I thank Michael Bolton to this day. Are you kidding me? Let’s cheers to Michael Bolton! Thank you, Michael Bolton, because I would not have these beautiful children,” Rinna said.
After hearing about Nicollette’s connection to the cast, fans flooded her with tweets; begging Nicollette to join RHOBH.
However, Nicolette made it clear that she doesn’t want to be dragged into any Real Housewives of Beverly Hills drama despite having major ties to the show.
On Twitter, Nicollette attempted to shut down claims that she cheated on Harry Hamlin with Michael Bolton.
“FAKE NEWS! Harry and I ended our marriage nose to nose in Canada…Michael was a long time friend that was invited to our wedding…Happy Harry found happiness with housewife @lisarinna @slice_tv,” Nicollette tweeted.
Harry quickly responded to Nicollette’s tweet and contradicted her version of events.
“Re Fake News! What’s it called when your wife of one year suddenly goes to bed with a pop singer? …two weeks after your mother dies?? I did a lotta stuff with my wife “nose to nose” but ending our marriage was not one of them!” Harry tweeted in response to Nicolette.
Nicollette then threatened to expose the truth and called Rinna’s claims a “housewife’s fake news narrative.”
“Do you really want the truth shared? I appreciate that you want to support your housewife’s FAKE NEWS narrative, but the end of our marriage had nothing to do with anyone other than us. Sad you still can’t own your part.@HarryRHamlin @lisarinna,” Nicollette fired back.
The drama didn’t stop there as Rinna jumped in to support her husband. Not surprisingly, Rinna shaded Nicollette in true Housewives style.
@IamNicollette You’re the gift that keeps on giving!” Lisa tweeted.
Rinna then penned an additional message to Nicollette but never tweeted it out. Instead, she posted the now-deleted message on her Instagram stories. Thankfully, I took a screenshot of it before Rinna deleted it. #WINNING
“My bad, I’m sorry, Nicollette,” Rinna wrote. “I forgot to thank you also. Thank you for f—ing Michael Bolton and cheating on Harry while married.”
Rinna added, “I thought I’d take the high road and not tweet this… NAH.”
OMFG! This is getting crazy and I love it! I can see LVP cozying up to Nicollette and bringing her on as a friend for season 10.
