Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards

Bless her damn heart. Brandi Glanville still doesn’t have a diamond. After slapping Lisa Vanderpump and causing multiple controversies on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Brandi found herself out of a job. The second she received a #pinkslipbybravo, Brandi started a campaign to try and get her gig back. Always finding herself in rather questionable situations, it seemed Brandi’s only shot was to create drama with people still actively employed on the show.

Most of the cast treated Brandi like a pariah, until they needed her for something. That “something” was a scandalous storyline with Denise Richards to pump up the drama on an otherwise lame season. In an attempt to throw the scent off the alleged affair with Brandi, Denise implied Brandi hooked up with yet another cast member. While we still don’t know if that is a fact, what we do know is it wasn’t Kim Richards. Thank God.

Kyle Richards Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

On Season 10 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, “OG” Kyle Richards wasn’t shy about sharing her opinions about her co-stars’ looks. Kyle lost her mind when Dorit Kemsley was late to Teddi Mellencamp’s retreat. Dorit showed up late after obviously being glammed up, and Kyle didn’t appreciate it.

RHOBH viewers were treated to even more trash-talking from Kyle when she attended Denise Richards and her husband’s Aaron Phypers’ low-key pizza party. Kyle discovered that Dorit was late to Teddi’s function because she did an Instagram photo shoot. When Denise defended Dorit, Kyle said that Denise looked like a “ragamuffin.” Gasp!

Kyle Richards Denise Richards

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Denise Richards announced in September that she was exiting the show. She had a pretty rough season. RHOBH viewers saw Brandi Glanville allege that she had a sexual liaison with Denise. Denise, whose husband Aaron Phypers was annoying all season, denied the hookup.

The accusations divided the cast, and “OG” Kyle Richards sided with Brandi. But that wasn’t Kyle’s only issue with Denise. Kyle called out Denise for not engaging with her fellow Housewives and for walking away repeatedly. Denise did not want to discuss these hookup allegations on camera, but Kyle and her bestie Teddi Mellencamp would not be denied.

Does the drama ever end in Beverly Hills? Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans learned that Denise Richards quit the show after alum Brandi Glanville told the world that she and Denise hooked up. Denise denied the allegations, and also denied having an open marriage with her husband, Aaron Phypers.

In a refreshing change of pace, Teddi Mellencamp admitted to the world that she was actually fired from RHOBH. Viewers know that “OG” Kyle Richards and Teddi are besties that are attached at the hip. Well, when Teddi isn’t hanging out in her father’s shadow.

Denise Richards Real Housewives of Beverly Hills RHOBH

It wasn’t exactly shocking when Denise Richards announced her exit from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. After a pretty easy first season, her second round was anything but enjoyable.

Kyle Richards made fun of her personal appearance, multiple times. Lisa Rinna turned her back on their friendship of over 20 years. Erika Jayne and Teddi Mellencamp argued with Denise’s husband Aaron Phypers to avoid talking about their own lives (beyond promoting their business ventures). Dorit Kemsley and Garcelle Beauvais had Denise’s back, but it wasn’t enough for her to stay around. And, you know what, who could blame her?

Brandi Glanville Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers have watched the fall-out from alum Brandi Glanville’s claim that she had an alleged sexual tryst with Denise Richards. Brandi disclosed the information to Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp. Kim Richards, Kyle’s sister and Brandi’s friend, already knew about the incident.

Somehow, the other RHOBH Housewives managed to insert themselves in the drama, which is ridiculous because it had nothing whatsoever to do with them. But here we are.

Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Garcelle Beauvais

Season 10 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was basically all about Denise Richards. I am sure that she really wishes that wasn’t the case. First her husband Aaron Phypers inserted himself into the drama. Then RHOBH alum Brandi Glanville dropped the bombshell that she allegedly hooked up with Denise.

Denise, of course, denied the rumors. She sent out cease and desist letters to Bravo and her co-stars. Denise also suffered from “shifting story syndrome,” and she repeatedly contradicted herself.

Lisa Rinna Denise Richards Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

This is it folks. We’ve finally reached the end of the road for this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The final part of the reunion also marks Denise Richards last appearance as a housewife. The end of an era. It’s so that her friendship with Lisa Rinna ended up as a casualty in this reality war. The second half of the season was the ultimate did she or didn’t she regarding those Brandi Glanville hookup allegations.

Denise has used every tactic in the book this season to avoid taking accountability for her actions. She’s skipped events, made up fake family emergencies, and even used legal measures as a means of silence. Surely, someone who has nothing to hide wouldn’t jump through all of those hooks. Right? When you sign up to do a show like this, you know they’re going to show the good, the bad, and the hideous. This is Denise’s last stand. Let the fun begin!
