The drama never ends in the 90210! After news broke that Denise Richards skipped filming for the Season 10 finale of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last week, rumors have been swirling that the actress is finding herself at the center of drama and on the outs with the rest of her cast mates.
In the wake of the rumors, Lisa Rinna took to the comments section of the second-season Housewife’s latest social media post to stir the pot about her longtime pal’s mysterious no-show.
First, some background. On Instagram, Denise revealed she’s been suffering lately from not one, not two, but four different hernias by reposting a sweet tribute from her super-hot hubby, Aaron Phypers, in the wake of the emergency surgery she underwent a few months ago. The post made no mention whatsoever of RHOBH, filming or any of Denise’s fellow ‘Wives.
However, being the all-star Housewife she is, Rinna took it upon herself send multiple messages of (very public) concern for her friend dipping out of the finale filming in the comments. “Denise are you ok? You never showed up to Dorit’s Sat night we were all so worried about you,” she wrote, inadvertently spilling the tea that Dorit Kemsley was apparently the finale’s host. “What happened?! You said you were coming, you were meeting Garcelle [Beauvais], We never heard from you. What happened ?” Rinna then followed up by again writing, “Is everything ok? Is everyone ok?”

While Denise didn’t respond to her friend’s (faux?) concern, Camille Grammer took notice of the drama going down on social media and decided to jump into the fray by calling out her one-time friend turned foe via Twitter. “Denise did not quit #rhobh and Rinna you throw your friend under the bus,” she fired off. “How about calling her to see how she’s Doing and stop tweeting about it.”
First of all, who’d have ever thought we’d see Camille go to bat for Denise, particularly considering the way the two frenemies butted heads at the Season 9 reunion? (To refresh your memory, Camille announced her disdain for the rookie Housewife during one particularly heated moment from the sit-down, and slammed her for being boring to watch after storming off the set in a huff.) Hell has truly frozen over in the 90210.

Second, while St. Camille of Grammer makes a valid point — Rinna could’ve just called instead of putting her friend on blast — whatever the reasons for Denise’s absence, you should never skip filming for the finale. Even if it feels like everyone is against you. It’s a cardinal rule of Housewives. Just ask Adrienne Maloof, who showed up for Season 3 in tears after splitting from husband Paul Nassif following a season where rumors of her surrogacy (and how she responded to them) were at the center of the action. Ask Lisa Vanderpump, who…oh wait, that’s right. LVP setting the precedent for bailing halfway through filming, which may have had something to do with Denise thinking it was OK not to show up…Just saying.
And while fans may never know Rinna‘s true motivations for her leaving the comments — was she being sincere? Was she being shady? — the one thing I know for sure is that I can’t wait to see the drama unfold when Season 10 premieres next year.
