Real Housewives regrets?
A new report from OK! Magazine claims that Denise Richards is having second thoughts about her exit from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Denise quit RHOBH last September after two seasons on the show. A source says she bolted from the Beverly Hills Housewives franchise “because she was burned out by all the pettiness, name-calling and infighting.”
The actress turned reality TV star was riled up after a season of shutting down Brandi Glanville’s claims they hooked up in 2019.
She also felt betrayed by co-star and former pal Lisa Rinna for “keeping the affair rumors percolating,” adds the insider.
The source continued, “She expected Lisa to take her side.”
At the time of her exit, Denise was halfway through her four-year, $4 million contract.
Almost a year later, Denise “realizes that was a mistake because it was a lot of easy money,” the insider notes. “Word is she wants to return to the series, but it’s hard to imagine the producers would welcome her back.”
Meanwhile, Garcelle Beauvais, who currently stars on RHOBH, recently confirmed on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen that Denise wants back on the show but hinted that one current Beverly Hills Housewife, i.e., Lisa Rinna, would need to leave before she’d return.
Denise later denied that she’d give Bravo an ultimatum to choose between her and Rinna but didn’t deny claims she wants back on RHOBH.
It’s unclear if Bravo will take Denise’s bait…only time will tell; however, I love the current RHOBH cast, so I’d like to see this group of ladies stay put for a while. They could def throw Denise back in the mix, but I don’t want them letting go of anyone at this point.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
