Brandi Glanville is giving Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans all the answers to their most burning questions about her alleged hookup with Denise Richards.
On this week’s RHOBH, dropped a bombshell when she revealed that she and Denise hooked up in April 2019.
Fans saw a very nervous Brandi tell Kyle Richards, Teddi Mellencamp, and Kim Richards about her sexual tryst with Denise, in April 2019, while visiting Denise on set in Northern California to interview her for her podcast “Brandi Glanville Unfiltered.”
“I went, and I was going to get my own room, but Denise said, ‘No, just stay here. It’s fine. I’ll get you a rollaway bed,’” Brandi confessed on this week’s episode of RHOBH. She also noted that Denise’s teenage daughter, Lola, and a friend were also on the trip. “There was no rollaway bed. … The kids were downstairs, and we were in the loft, and there was no door. And I just couldn’t get into it. The next day, Denise said to me, ‘No matter what you do, you just can’t tell Aaron. He will kill me.’ And I’m like, ‘What the f—k is happening right now?’”
While some fans didn’t buy Brandi’s story at all, the former RHOBH star continues to insist that she isn’t lying about the hookup.
“I’m not lying,” Brandi told Us Weekly. “People can say whatever they want to say. Listen, it doesn’t matter because I know my truth, and the truth is setting me free right now because I don’t have to keep this f—king secret anymore. Because I hate [secrets], I just am not good at secrets. … I don’t like [it] when I think somebody has something on me. It’s just the worst feeling. That’s why I live my life so out loud.”
Us Weekly pointed out that a source denied Brandi’s version of events, claiming Aaron Phypers was there and stayed in a room with Denise separate from Brandi. However, Brandi says otherwise and insists Aaron left before she ever arrived.
“I never even saw him,” Brandi said, adamantly. “But he knew I was coming, and he knew I was there.”
Speaking of Aaron, Brandi said she was under the impression Aaron was “Ok” with Denise sleeping with women, which is why she was so confused by Denise’s pleas not to tell Aaron about their hookup.
“The morning after … I was just kind of in shock by it,” Brandi admitted. “And she continued to be really nice to me. And she would text me to check-in, but she was just very unavailable, she definitely hit it and quit it. So I was like, ‘Oh s—t, this bitch.’”
As for her hookup with Denise, Brandi now claims she “wasn’t really into it.”
“I wasn’t really into it,” Brandi revealed. “We had both had a lot to drink.”
She added, “She’s a beautiful girl, and that’s all I want to say.”
Brandi then addressed why she made the “throuple” comment to Denise and Aaron during this week’s episode of RHOBH.
“Denise and Aaron had talked to me before about threesomes and finding girls, so it wasn’t just random that I brought it up,” Brandi said.
Meanwhile, RHOBH fans have also been dying to know the ins and outs of Brandi’s decision to share her story on camera. Some have accused Brandi of “pre-planning” the scene with Kim, Kyle, and Teddi; however, Brandi says that isn’t true at all.
Brandi does admit that Kim knew about the story before filming the scene with Kyle and Teddi, pointing out that Kim encouraged her to share her story with the ladies.
The Drinking and Tweeting author denied using Denise to get back on RHOBH.
“If I was just doing it to make a splash, why would I not have done it last season? Then they would have brought be back full-time this season because they would have had a giant full f—king storyline,” she said. “I didn’t say it last season because I was worried that I was a cheater after she’s like, ‘Oh Aaron’s going to kill me if he finds out.’ I thought, ‘What is she talking about?’ That is bullsh–t.’”
In fact, Brandi said she hadn’t even talked to Denise, in person, since their April 2019 hookup, claiming they would text but Denise always said she was “really busy” and acted “too cool for school.”
And, accoridng to Brandi, it wasn’t until Denise caught wind that Brandi would be filming for season 10 that Denise started reaching out to her again.
“I hadn’t told any of the women. I shared with my off-camera friends, but once you tell one person in this group, news travels fast. Denise started hitting me up again once she found out I would be filming Housewives,” she said. “I was annoyed. And then Denise started talking s—t about all the other women like we were best friends.”
As for why she ultimately told Kyle and Teddi about her alleged hookup with Denise, Brandi explained, “I was still on the fence about telling the other women. And then it came up at Kyle’s when Kim brought it up. And then I didn’t really have a choice but to share. We were legitimately going to my birthday dinner. The producers didn’t even know. Kim was the only person that knew. Kim didn’t tell Kyle.”
To conclude, Brandi says she doesn’t have any regrets but admits she wants to have a conversation with Denise and put this whole thing behind them.
“No, because ultimately, it was a big relief, and this was weighing me down and stressing me out,” she confessed. “I want it to be done, yes. I would love to have an honest conversation with her, and then we can both put this behind us.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
