Report: Denise Richards’ Busy Acting Career Allegedly Causes Major Absence From Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

As you know, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is filming it’s first season sans Lisa Vanderpump. As someone with a heavy fan base who have no problems holding a grudge, the current cast will have to step it up. Thankfully we have two new ladies joining the crew. Both friends of Lisa Rinna, Sutton Stracke and Garcelle Beauvais are getting their feet wet in the shark pond.

Everyone else will be returning, including Denise Richards. Last year Denise graced us with too many stories about her husband’s alleged massive penis situation but she was mildly amusing and didn’t stir up too much controversy. She seemed to be a bit of a Switzerland kind of gal with leanings towards the Dark Side. So what will Denise bring us this year? Will she find herself huddled under Kyle Richards’ crown? Will she join Erika Jayne’s back-up dancers? Probably none of the above, she’s busy working at her day job.

Denise has really been hustling lately. Season 9 of RHOBH gave us a glimpse into Denise’s workhorse kind of life. She got married, did a Hallmark Christmas movie, and escaped a fire in 13 episodes. Now that the cast is in the middle of filming again, people have noticed Denise isn’t around very much. While she did travel to New York to walk in Kyle’s caftan collection runway show, Denise has otherwise been off the RHOBH radar. Don’t worry, she’s not hanging out in court with everyone else. Denise might actually be earning a living.

I guess it’s safe to say we will see little if any of the legal drama some of the major players are experiencing. It might be safe to say we won’t be seeing a lot of Denise either. According to HollywoodLife, the mom of 3 has a lot going on and supposedly it has impacted her presence on the new season of Real Housewives.

A source commented, “Denise has actually been MIA from filming [Real Housewives] a lot just because she’s so busy filming her other projects.” Denise has been rocking the soap opera life since March and apparently, the schedule is pretty intense. Side-note, how great would Susan Lucci be on this show…

The source also shared, “She [Denise] really loves doing Housewives but being an actress is her first priority when it comes to her career and [RHOBH] has opened even more doors for her.” It must have because she is also doing a sci-fi series and two other television movies.

Denise has bills to pay, you guys! So apparently she has been bigtime MIA in Encino Beverly Hills. “She’s barely filmed RHOBH so far this season and missed a few events just due to her own acting career which has picked up even more since she signed on for Housewives,” the source explained.

The insider added Denise is still on the crazy Housewives train and hopes to get back to filming with the ladies soon. “The [RHOBH] women love her and are hopeful that she’ll be at more events in the near future.” Her other option is to sit around and watch Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave hold herself accountable for being pregnant. Look on the bright side, if she isn’t there, she can’t be blamed for anything. And we all know how the Blame Game goes with this crew. Good for you, Denise!
