The All-In founder dubbed Denise “obnoxious” for trying to “control the narrative” on RHOBH while Dorit slammed Denise for attempting to pick and chose what she let the show film.
In a teaser for season 10, fans witnessed Denise break the fourth wall with her soon-to-be iconic “Bravo, Bravo, f—king Bravo. I’m out. I am not f—king doing this.” The preview also revealed that Denise stopped filming with the rest of the RHOBH cast in December 2019.
RHOBH OG Kyle Richards was the first to address Denise’s season 10 behavior while speaking to The Daily Dish podcast. Kyle revealed that Denise purposely broke the fourth wall, by using a trick the Housewives used during season one, in the hopes that Bravo wouldn’t use the footage.
However, that plan backfired – BIG TIME.
“If the cameras come back up and we don’t want them to film us yet, we would joke and say, ‘Oh, Bravo, Bravo, Bravo. Hi, Andy Cohen. Hi, Andy Cohen.’ And then laugh so they wouldn’t use the footage because you can’t break the fourth wall because they don’t acknowledge that we’re on a show,” Kyle revealed.
Teddi, on the other hand, has a different take on it all.
When asked if she’s ever “called out the safe word,” Teddi said, “One, there’s no safe word.” Teddi also added that she’s “never seen anybody else in our group do that.”
Yet, according to Teddi, Denise used the tactic “multiple times this year,” which Teddi didn’t agree with at all.
“Every single time she did it, I was like, who told her this?” said Teddi. “Like, there was one point we were at a dinner, and she’s like ‘Bravo, Bravo, Bravo,’ like a crazy person. And I’m like, you know what you signed up for.’”
“All of us have been in the hot seat at one point or another. And within this group, there are some times where you’re gonna say something about somebody and feel differently two weeks later. And that’s life. It’s what happens,” she said.
Meanwhile, PEOPLE asked Dorit about Denise breaking the fourth wall to prevent the footage from airing.
“I think everyone was just like, ‘whoa,’” Dorit admitted.
Adding, “And the thing is, you can’t really do that. You can’t kind of choose what you want in or not in.”
“Imagine if we could all had that choice. I think that’s kind of why the network, Bravo, decided to show that,” she continued.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo.
