Brandi Glanville finally dropped the bombshell fans had been waiting for on last week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. During the episode, the self-professed “truth cannon” opened up to Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp and admitted the details of her scandalous off-camera hook-up with Denise Richards.
Now, on the RHOBH After Show, Kyle is breaking down all the reasons why she immediately believed Brandi‘s salacious version of events, despite the pair’s rather explosive, rocky history together.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp has picked a side in the “she said-she said” war between Denise Richards and Brandi Glanville. And while Garcelle Beauvais is “Team Denise Richards,” Teddi is definitely not.
None of the Beverly Hills ladies appreciated Denise’s husband, Aaron Phypers, inserting himself into the drama between the ladies. Sorry, Aaron.
Normally, the Housewives are offended when the husbands and boyfriends get involved in the drama, but what about the dads? During the most recent episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Brandi Glanville claimed that Denise Richards said Teddi Mellencamp lives in her father’s shadow. Yeah, we “know” her now after three seasons on this show, but still, it’s fair to assume that having the “Mellencamp” last name got Teddi her RHOBH audition
and many other opportunities throughout the course of her life.
Teddi fired back by sharing a screenshot of a conversation she had with John Mellencamp about Denise’s alleged remarks
that everyone agrees with anyway. Denise took a screenshot of the screenshot (yes, that’s a thing) and denied shading Teddi… while simultaneously shading Teddi. Not one to be left out, Brandi got her dad in on the social media posts, asking him to defend her via video.
All roads lead to Denise Richards these days. Even Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga has chimed in on Denise’s drama with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast.
Denise has caught some flack for not showing up to events and leaving early, and, apparently, Melissa’s perspective is similar to the RHOBH ladies’.
Denise Richards is the reason to watch Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. If she wasn’t on this season, what would Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Erika Girardi, and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave have to talk about? Kyle’s failed fashion attempts? Erika’s canceled Chicago play? Lisa’s QVC line? Teddi’s…?
Aside from Garcelle Beauvais and Denise, the “friends” of these Housewives are the only people bringing anything to the table right now. I never thought I’d be this excited for cameos by Camille Grammer, Kim Richards, or even Brandi Glanville, but I am. Dorit Kemsley’s Bucca Di Beppo room decorating is even more exciting than anything Kyle and her mean girl army are orchestrating. At this point, who even cares if Denise and Brandi got it on? All this Denise pile on is doing is making Kyle’s desperation as transparent as Rinna’s.
This season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been crazy. And now that alum Brandi Glanville has dropped the bomb detailing how she hooked up with Denise Richards, it will only get crazier!
RHOBH viewers have known for a long time that Brandi claimed to have had a sexual liaison with Denise, and that Denise and her husband Aaron Phypers have an open relationship. Denise has, of course, denied both claims. Denise also sent cease and desist letters to the RHOBH cast and crew.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newbie Garcelle Beauvais watched long-time pal Lisa Rinna go after Denise Richards all season. Lisa criticized Denise for walking away and shutting down any questions from her RHOBH co-stars.
Then Denise’s husband Aaron Phypers got involved in all the drama. We all know that nothing good comes from a Housewife husband mixing it up with the ladies. The whole situation is awkward since Garcelle is also friends with Denise.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast recently filmed the season 10 reunion. Lisa Rinna said it was “bullshit,” attributing blame to those cease and desist letters that Denise Richards sent to the cast and crew. Reunion host Andy Cohen disagreed with her sentiments, of course.
After filming, Denise and Garcelle Beauvais unfollowed Lisa. Denise also unfollowed Teddi Mellencamp and Erika Jayne. I don’t blame her for unfollowing Teddi though. I would have just done that based on the excessive workout posts alone. It’s assumed that the reunion was filmed just like the other recent Bravo reunions, with everyone filming separately from the safety of their homes.
However, Kyle Richards posted a photo post-filming with Erika, Teddi, Dorit Kemsley (wearing Louis Vuitton pajamas), and Lisa. Did they just get together after the fact? I would love to know about the logistics of this filming situation, but we will probably have to wait on that.
