Denise Richards quickly became a fan favorite when she joined the season 9 cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Denise became so well-liked that RHOBH fans were happy to hear that she was returning for season 10, which is saying a lot considering how many fans wanted the entire Beverly Hills franchise recast following Lisa Vanderpump‘s departure.
However, it looks like Denise’s season 10 role may be much smaller than fans anticipated.
According to rumors, Denise has barely had time to film for season 10 of RHOBH due to her crazy-busy work schedule.
“Denise Richards has actually been MIA from filming [Real Housewives] a lot just because she’s so busy filming her other projects,” a source tells HollywoodLife. “She really loves doing Housewives, but being an actress is her first priority when it comes to her career, and [RHOBH] has opened even more doors for her.”
It turns out Denise is also still adjusting to the ins and outs of filming reality TV, which is much different than shooting a show or movie on set.
“She kind of treats RHOBH like a set, and the ladies constantly have to remind her it’s real,” the source continued. “She’s barely filmed RHOBH so far this season and missed a few events just due to her own acting career, which has picked up even more since she signed on for Housewives.”
In March, Denise joined the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful. She’s also busy filming various other TV movies and series that will come out within the next year.
“She’s so busy and has so many different projects going on that she accidentally gets her projects mixed up,” the insider added.
On top of filming for RHOBH, Denise is also trying to focus on her personal life, which includes her husband Aaron Phyphers and three daughters Sam, 15, Lola, 14, and Eloise, 7.
“Denise has also really been trying to focus on her family and her health, even recently recovering from a surgical procedure,” the source continued. “The [RHOBH] women love her and are hopeful that she’ll be at more events in the near future.”
Filming for season 10 is still in full swing so hopefully, Denise will be able to film more in the coming months!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will return to Bravo for season 10 in early 2020.
