Well, the writing was on the wall. After enduring a season of being targeted by almost all of her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-stars, Denise Richards is exiting the show after her second season.
Season 10 focused on RHOBH alum Brandi Glanville’s claims that she and Denise hooked up. Denise allegedly told Brandi that she had an open marriage with her husband, Aaron Phypers. But that was apparently news to Aaron…
Denise denied that she had a sexual relationship with Brandi. The actress also denied talking smack about her co-stars behind their backs. Sure, Denise.
The cast trip to Rome consisted of Teddi Mellencamp, Erika Jayne, Lisa Rinna, and Kyle Richards ganging up on Denise about Brandi’s claims. It is clear that Denise was lying about Brandi’s accusations because she contradicted herself several times, and repeatedly ditched her co-stars while they interrogated her.

Denise even sent cease and desist letters to Bravo and some of her RHOBH co-stars. Now that is awkward!
Denise and Lisa had been friends for 20 years, but there is no salvaging this relationship. Lisa even posted in her Instagram Story, “You have to be true to yourself and if you find out your friend of 20 years is a phony? run.”

The RHOBH reunion is also all about Denise. The other Beverly Hills ladies were frustrated that Brandi wasn’t allowed to participate in the virtual
dragging of Denise discussion.
Now some of Denise’s RHOBH co-stars are reacting to her decision to ditch the show. Erika posted a meme on Twitter of one kid leaning against a door and another child slamming the door, shoving the kid out. She commented “Bye” with a waving hand emoji. Tell us how you really feel, Erika!
Teddi took to her Instagram Story to answer a fan’s question asking if she was happy Denise was leaving. Teddi’s response was posted by realhousewivesfranchise.
“Not surprised. I don’t know when and why the decision was made but anytime one person wants to be the “star” of a show and control how they are portrayed when it’s about showing the truth as an ensemble it doesn’t end well,” Teddi wrote.

“I wish her the best and hope she is thriving and happy. I also hope she stops referring to herself in the third person, but I guess I have to let that part go.” Teddi took another swipe at Denise and ended her post with, “#BRAVOBRAVOF**KINGBRAVO.”
Denise’s long-time pal, Garcelle Beauvais, has been Team Denise all season long. She acknowledged her friend’s decision with an Instagram post with the words, “PLOT TWIST.” Garcelle also commented, “#plottwist Things just got interesting…”

People reported that Garcelle shared her feelings about Denise’s departure in an interview on SiriusXM’s The Jenny McCarthy Show. Let’s just say Garcelle wasn’t shocked. “I think when you’re constantly talked about, you know, it could affect your marriage, it could affect your kids,” Garcelle explained. “It was just like, back off a little bit, not every dinner needs to be about this. I think she’s just had enough.”
