There is allegedly some turmoil behind-the-scenes of the upcoming tenth season of RHOBH. Could Denise Richards leave the show after this season and is she related to Kyle and Kim Richards?
RHOBH: Denise Richards’ history with both sisters
Despite sharing the same last name, Denise Richards is not related to sisters Kyle and Kim, although she and Kyle Richards have a lot of history together. The latter said on the season 9 premiere of the show, “11 years ago, I was part of this ‘Hollywood moms’ group. It was Lisa Rinna, Denise Richards, Ali Landry, myself, Alison Sweeney, and we would get together from time to time. Everybody brought a potluck, whatever their favorite dessert was, and that’s how I met Denise originally.”
Kim Richards, who departed as a main cast member after Denise Richards came on, didn’t really know her prior to the show. “I don’t know her. I just saw her, but I was like, “Okay, so I didn’t come back, so [come on] another Richards. Add it to the list. I think she’s beautiful and I wish her all the luck,” she said before the season started.
On the show, Denise Richards helped end the feud between Kim Richards (who was guest-starring) and Rinna. But now, rumor has it that Denise Richards and Lisa Rinna may fight in season 10.
How Denise Richards feels about ‘RHOBH’ right now
Denise Richards has reportedly skipped filming much of season 10 of the show because she’s unhappy with it. Rinna even called her in an Instagram post a few weeks ago, after she wasn’t at the closing shoot.
It is reported that Kyle Richards, seemingly an ally of Denise, could be the reason behind her demise. Brandi Glanville would have warned Denise.
“Brandi [Glanville] called Denise early in the season because Kyle had told Brandi that Denise was going to be the one person that the other ladies picked on this season in Lisa Vanderpump‘s absence.Kyle said that all the audience liked about Denise last season, is what the ladies would use against her this season,” a source told Hollywood life.
Glanville denied these rumours on Twitter and said: “I’m just going to say that neither Kyle nor Denise ever said a negative word about each other LIES!!! And merry Christmas Eve.
Will Denise Richards leave ‘RHOBH’
Many people believe that this could be the last season for Denise Richards. “She doesn’t seem to be enjoying doing the show as much this season and nobody would be surprised if it were to be her last. She wants to act more and Housewives has opened up other possibilities for her. She’s really not about the drama and seems to be detached from it. Much of the cast is frustrated with her lack of participation still this season,” an insider told Hollywood Life.
It makes sense that Denise would continue to pursue more acting opportunities. She is currently a series on the CBS daytime soap, The Bold and the Beautiful. However, soap actresses are not new to the show, because Eileen Davidson and Lisa Rinna also played in their respective soaps during the show.
