During last Wednesday’s episode of RHOBH, Denise finally decided to share her true feelings about the recent Brandi Glanville drama with her co-stars.
“I have to say this because this has been probably the worst trip I have ever been on in my entire life. I don’t deserve this, and you know that,” Denise told the ladies.
Denise then calls all the ladies “mean girls.” During season 9 of RHOBH, the cast had all been labeled the “RHOBH Mean Girls” by some fans who didn’t like how the ladies treated Lisa Vanderpump.
“And you know what, it has gotten to the point—this is the god’s honest truth—where it is mean girls,” Denise declared.
Now, the RHOBH cast is reacting to Denise labeling them “mean girls.”
“I don’t think we’re mean girls. I think that we’re opinionated women, and I think that we’re here to tell our side of the story, how we see it,” Erika Girardi explained on the RHOBH After Show. “I think that those are words that people like to assign to us, so, yes, it’s convenient speech, and it’s a great way to label. I don’t think in the long run, it serves her or anyone else, quite honestly, because next year, she can be labeled a ‘mean girl’ as well.”
Dorit Kemsley agreed: “For me, and I had been defending Denise, and when Denise had said that, I just felt that, you know, that’s not [a] fair nor accurate portrayal. I don’t believe that anybody is a mean girl in our group or [has] set out with that intention. And I can say that aside from any of the other accusations, or what I believe or don’t believe, I think that was a really wrong way to approach it.”
Newbie Sutton Stracke defended her co-stars, saying, “It’s a really bad misconception of all of these women. Can we each have a mean moment? Yes. I mean, we’re women. That’s what we do. We’re not that nice sometimes, but 99% of the time, we are there to chit chat, have fun, get to know each other better, come from a good place. This is not a gang up situation. I disagree with that wholeheartedly 100%. It’s not a group of mean girls.”
Sutton added, “I think that she’s setting herself up to be like she was the victim of the mean girls.”
Teddi Mellencamp, on the other hand, said that the ladies were in a “lose-lose situation” with Denise.
“Really, by that point, we were just in a lose-lose situation because if we say anything, we’re ‘not letting it go,’ but if we don’t say anything, we’re just letting you come after our character and say we’re mean and all those types of things,” she explained.
Teddi also took issue with Denise only wanting to discuss things on her terms.
“You’re the one that wanted to drop it, but now that you’re prepared, it took you four nights or however many nights. You want us to let you perfectly give your speech when you’re not really addressing any of the issues that we’ve ever had.”
