Denise Richards Might Join Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

After a painfully boring Season 8, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is in a major need to shake things up. As of this moment, there hasn’t been any rumors about cast firings (unfortunately), but there is some gossip that they are adding someone else to the mix.

Reportedly, there is another Richards in talks to join the cast and she’s not related to Kyle Richards– although they do know each other. Could Denise Richards be the next Real Housewife in Beverly Hills? She wouldn’t be the first well-known woman to join the show. Thank you, Lisa Rinna for paving the way.

According to a report from People, “It’s not final yet, it’s very close.” An “inside source” claims, “Everyone is really excited about the possibility of having her on board!” At this point, the fans will welcome any change with open arms. Pretty much any new addition would be better than the boring story lines that the viewers were subjected to last season.

Apparently this has been in the works for a while and the actress has been in talks to become a Housewife for years, but “the timing was never right.” I can’t help blaming Denise’s ex-husband Charlie Sheen and his shenanigans for the timing “never being right.”

It also could make sense for her to join the show since she is a fan and she already knows some of the cast members. The source told People, “She has close relationships with many of the women in real life, including Kyle Richards and Lisa Rinna. The timing was never right for her in the past, but the producers needed to shake the dynamic of the show up after a season without much conflict. She’s going to be a great fit. She’s not afraid of the drama. And she lives a glamorous, Hollywood life — which the show looks for.”

That’s what I’m looking for: someone who’s “not afraid of the drama.” If that’s actually the case, then let’s give Denise whatever she is asking for. We need to revive the drama on this show and we need it ASAP.
