Denise Richards Says ‘RHOBH’ Stars Didn’t Ask If She Quit Before Starting Rumor
The premiere teased that she probably did walk off later in the season. This is how the rumor was started and what Richards has to say about the co-star who started it.
Lisa Rinna questioned why she didn’t show up to ‘RHOBH’ events
There were rumors that Richards quit the show while filming was still going for season 10. She then posted a picture on Instagram revealing she got a procedure done to treat four hernias, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Lisa Rinna commented on her Instagram post asking if she was alright in December. “Denise are you ok? You never showed up to Dorit [Kemsley]’s Sat night we were all so worried about you. What happened?! You said you were coming, you were meeting Garcelle [Beauvais], We never heard from you. What happened?” she wrote.
Camille Meyer then tweeted, “Denise did not quit #rhobh and Rinna you throw your friend under a bus. How about calling her to see how she’s doing and stop tweeting about it.” Rinna replied with “I did reach out to her privately. Thank you for your concern, Camille.”
The premiere shows she stopped filming
The premiere for the new season teased her possible exit. “In December, Denise stopped shooting with the group,” read a message in the episode. A scene was shown of Denise and Kyle talking at a table with the rest of the cast.
Denise asks her “Who gives a sh*t?” Kyle then says, “If you had been honest–” before Denise says, “I was honest. I’ve been honest.” She then leaves the table. “I’m done,” we hear her say.
She is then seen storming out with her husband, Aaron Phypers from another event. “We’re on camera,” she said to him. “Don’t say a f*cking word.” It looks like Kyle is walking behind them trying to stop her from leaving.
We then get another scene of Denise at the table. She waves her arms saying she isn’t doing this and says “Bravo” multiple times. “I’m a very married woman and I love my husband,” Denise says with tears in her eyes. The episode ends with Kyle talking on the phone with Rinna about the headlines saying Denise quit the show.
She claims her co-stars didn’t ask her if she quit
Richards talked about the rumor that she didn’t return to film because she quit the show. She denied that this was the case in an interview with Extra.
“We were pretty much wrapped actually in December, and I was asked to go to two events that we had,” she said. “And I did not make it to those; that was the extent of me stopping filming. I filmed as much as I filmed. And I did not quit the show. The only ones that said I quit it are some of the people on the show, and they never asked if that was true or not.”
Fans will have to keep watching to see how the season ends. The good news is that Richards seems interested in staying on the show and doing the reunion.
