This comes amid rumors that Brandi and Denise had an affair in 2019 and that Denise and her husband Aaron Phypers have an open marriage. Brandi has fueled these rumors by insinuating, multiple times, that she and Denise have hooked up on more than one occasion.
The alleged affair between Brandi and Denise will be a major storyline during the second half of season 10.
On June 27, Brandi told RHOBH fans on Twitter to “snack on this” and posted a photo of her kissing an unnamed woman.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans quickly pointed out that it looks like the woman in the picture is none other than Denise Richards.
One fan backed up their claim by posting a screenshot of Brandi’s season 9 appearance on RHOBH when she met up for drinks with Denise.
While many fans believe it is Denise in the photos, others aren’t so sure. Some fans called Brandi “thirsty” and said the photo “proves nothing.”
On June 29, Brandi shut down doubters and confirmed that it is Denise in the photo.
“It’s 1 million percent DR !!! NOT a DR look alike,” Brandi tweeted.
Brandi’s confirmation didn’t do anything to help her cause. Instead, fans called her out for kissing and telling.
“People’s sexuality is their own business, and shouldn’t be weaponized to improve rating on a sinking franchise. Maybe that’s not how it’ll play out, but it sure looks that way,” one fan tweeted.
Another said, “Regardless, you kissed or not, sleep or not, is not our business. Denise doesn’t want that out. Why are you posting these? For your “Truth”? Or your ticket to get back to the show? For [the] approval of Rinna and Kyle?”
“Why you so weird about it and telling everyone. Yikes,” a third fan added.
“Brandi, why would you sleep with anyone who is married, open relationship, or not. Don’t you make a big deal of the women who had affairs with ex-husband? Take some of your own advice and stay away from married men/women,” another fan commented.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo.
