The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star first revealed that Heather “reached out” to her and was “Team Brandi” while appearing on the September 9 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
Now Brandi reveals precisely what she and Heather have been chatting about in a new interview with DailyMailTV.
“During this whole dramatic situation, during the reunion and whatnot, I get an Instagram DM from Heather Locklear, who I literally grew up watching on TV, and I was kind of starstruck,” Brandi confessed.
Brandi went on to reveal that she allegedly received two text messages from Heather as well.
One of Heather’s text messages allegedly read: “I tried to watch the reunion. I just felt sick; I guess about Denise’s spirit, such a dark place. So I had to turn it off.”
The Unfiltered podcast host asked Heather if she could share the text message with the Beverly Hills Housewives on camera.
However, Heather declined Brandi’s offer, texting, “Probably best not to show it because I’ll get a cease and desist, which she sent me years ago. LOL. I won’t even say anything. I support you fully.”
Brandi and Heather are “meeting for lunch this week” and “texting back and forth,” according to the former reality TV star.
The two will most likely bond further over their mutual ruined friendships with Denise.
“Denise told me that she didn’t know Heather, that they weren’t friends at all. And now I’m finding out completely the opposite,” Brandi revealed, adding that she relates to this as Denise now claims that she and Brandi were nothing more than “acquaintances.”
“And you know, Denise is now saying that she doesn’t know me and we weren’t friends at all. So I kind of see how she’s operating these days,” she added.
If you don’t know, Heather and Denise’s drama goes back to 2006. Denise began dating Richie Sambora, months after he split from Heather; ending their 11-year marriage.
“I feel bad for her because I think that part of a lot of what Heather had to go through (in her marriage) was because of what Denise did,” Brandi said. “Not that her husband was not part of the problem, but when you have a girlfriend, and you think that you’re close, you don’t think you have to worry about your husband with that person.”
Denise has denied being friends with Heather before dating her ex-husband.
“I was no longer friends with Heather months before Richie, and I got together. I don’t want to say what caused the split, but she and I weren’t even speaking then,” Denise told Redbook in 2012.
Even at the RHOBH season 10 reunion, Denise insisted that it was her ex-husband Charlie Sheen who was friends with Heather. However, from the looks of it, Heather and Denise were quite friendly.
Meanwhile, a source tells Us Weekly that Denise is unsure if Brandi and Heather’s alleged exchange ever happened. The source also denied claims that Denise ever sent Heather a cease and desist.
“Denise never sent a cease and desist letter to Heather. It just never happened. Who really knows if Heather and Brandi were ever in contact,” the insider said. “Heather has never spoken about Denise and Richie’s relationship publicly, so it’s just odd for Brandi to be making these very false claims. Brandi needs to produce this cease and desist letter that Heather told her she got from Denise. Denise admitted to sending a cease and desist letter to Brandi, and that is it.”
