Andy Cohen Denise Richards

Anyone else still spinning about Denise Richards leaving Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Maybe it was inevitable, but still, the entire season was built on her back and the alleged affair with Brandi Glanville. So, where do they go from here? Next season, will it be like Denise never happened? Probably, if Lisa Rinna has it her way.

The cast of RHOBH needs to change. Like a Real Housewives of Orange County-level shake up. Teddi Mellencamp,Kyle Richards, Erika Jayne, and Lipsa should take a breather. They gave us nothing for the third season in a row. Shouldn’t that be grounds for dismissal?  Instead of quitting, if Denise gave it one more go, I really think Bravo would have blessed her with a redemption arc. But we’re saying goodbye to her and Big D*ck Aaron Phypers.(That name works on two levels here).

According to People, Denise was in talks to appear next season. Andy Cohen shared, “we were negotiating a deal with her and we couldn’t reach an agreement on the deal.” Vague, but interesting because it seemed as though Denise made up her mind during filming of Season 10.

When asked about Denise not sharing much this season about the alleged affair, Andy commented, “she’s answering her truth.” Even if “her truth” isn’t “the truth,” I guess.

“She has a family and kids,” he continued, “whatever happened or didn’t happen, I would imagine that it’s something that maybe she didn’t really care to discuss on a television show.” You think?

Commentary aside, the interview doesn’t reveal much other than there was a deal on the table. Maybe Denise wanted more than Bravo would give. “I’m just sad we couldn’t reach an agreement for next season,” Andy shared with People. “I’m kind of living in that sadness,” he concluded. Me too, Andy.

I do hope that Garcelle Beauvais, Sutton Stracke, and Dorit Kemsley return for Season 11. Everyone else can let the door hit them on the way out as far as I’m concerned. If they don’t do something drastic, I fear RHOBH will be the new RHOC.
