Season 10 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills may be over, but Erika Girardi isn’t ready to let go of the drama between Denise Richards and Brandi Glanville.
The RHOBH star recently revealed why she’s still frustrated over the drama Denise stirred up during season 10.
“I think the most frustrating part about all of this was that Denise could not even acknowledge what was said on camera,” Erika explained on the Thursday, September 17, episode of Daily Pop. “So it’s kind of like irrefutable evidence. And then just, ‘I didn’t say that’… but it’s on camera!”
As RHOBH fans know, Denise spent most of season 10 defending herself against allegations that she hooked up with Brandi. Denise has continued to deny Brandi’s claims that they had an affair. She also rejected Brandi’s insistence that she trash-talked Kyle Richards, Teddi Mellencamp, and her other RHOBH co-stars.
Denise did own up to bad-mouthing Teddi but later retracted her confessional admission at the season 10 reunion.
Erika was NOT happy that Brandi was not able to speak her peace at the season 10 reunion.
“Had it been any other Housewife in that situation, Brandi would’ve been seated right there to confront her,” she noted on Daily Pop. “But she wasn’t. … It puts us in a weird place — and you know this game better than me, Justin [Sylvester] — so when the Brandi thing comes to light, we as a cast have to talk about it. And we’re dragged into it.”
She added: “Now you’re taking Brandi, who’s an important piece of this story for months now, and you’re not letting her speak? And I just feel like had it been any other woman, Brandi would’ve been there.”
Erika also speculates that Denise couldn’t adjust to the reality TV format because she’s an actress.
“There’s no stop and start. There’s no script,” she said. “You’re talking off the top of your head. Everything is up for grabs. Everything will and can be used. And you have to be able to live in that space. And there’s no protection from production or the network or your friends or, you know, anyone. … Everybody looks bad. Everybody takes a hit. Everybody stumbles, and there’s no retakes, really.”
Meanwhile, Brandi believes her prospects of ever being brought back to RHOBH full-time went out the door the minute Denise left the franchise.
“Denise, I think, ultimately wins again. Because she’s not coming back…which means there’s really no reason to bring me back. So once again, she f**ked me,” Brandi told Daily Mail TV of Denise’s RHOBH exit.
