Inside Brandi Glanville’s claims

There have been a lot of rumors surrounding season 10 of the RHOBH, which only recently finished filming. One of the bigger points of contention this season revolves around a rumored affair between Brandi Glanville and Denise Richards.

Glanville says that she and Richards hooked up on multiple occasions, accusations that Richards has vehemently denied. Glanville also claims that she thought Richards’ husband knew about their relationship only to find out that he was kept in the dark.

On the show, the rumors reportedly came to light during a cast dinner. At one point in the conversation, Glanville told her co-stars that she hooked up with Richards.

Unfortunately for Richards, the rumors did not stop there. The topic was brought up again during the cast getaway to Rome, and Glanville has not backed down from the claims on social media.

Brandi Glanville assures fans that she is telling the truth

While Richards says that the affair rumors are a lie, Glanville recently took to social media and assured fans that she is telling the truth. She has also hinted that she cannot say much about the drama, especially since season 10 has yet to premiere.

“I am not lying about ANYTHING that I said on housewives and Im willing to take a lie detector test and let’s be clear I was not EVEN the aggressor!!!!” she tweeted.

Glanville also shared a photo of herself posing on the set of Watch What Happens Live. In the caption, Glanville took a dig at Richards by saying that she was not “allowed” to discuss the rumors surrounding Richards.

Glanville was a full-time cast member of RHOBH between the third and fifth season of the show. She returned as a guest in season 9 and will have another small cameo in season 10.

Although Brandi Glanville is the one who started the rumors about Richards, Rinna has kept them alive throughout the upcoming season.

How is Lisa Rinna involved in the drama between Glanville and Richards?

Sources say that Richards was caught off guard when she was confronted by the affair rumors on the set of RHOBH. And the drama heated up when the cast flew to Rome for their annual trip.

According to All About The Tea, Rinna is the one who brought up the rumors while the women were enjoying their time in Rome. Richards did not respond well to the accusations and a huge fight reportedly ensued.

“Denise still has no idea where the Brandi rumors came from and Rinna seemed upset that Denise is denying it so Rinna confronted her and they got into a big fight about it. They later fought again at a charity event filmed at Kyle’s house,” a source revealed.

The argument got so heated that Richards reportedly stopped filming. Rinna slammed Richards on social media for not attending a cast party, and her post seemingly backed up the reports that Richards refused to appear in front of the cameras.

That said, an insider close to Richards says that the reports about her quitting the series are false. The source assured fans that Richards completed filming for season 10 of RHOBH and noted that she is very disappointed about the reports.

Richards gets support from her ‘RHOBH’ co-stars

In light of the salacious rumors, several of Richards’ RHOBH co-stars have spoken up on her behalf. Camille Grammer, for instance, slammed Brandi Glanville on Twitter for making up “hurtful” stories about Richards so that she could get her spot on RHOBH back.

“I’m bored with these contrived, fake stories. Boring…to her fans, she is full of it,” she added.

As far as Teddi Mellencamp is concerned, she is playing her cards a little closer to her chest. In a recent interview, Mellencamp said that she is not permitted to say anything about the drama. She also wishes that the rumors didn’t come out ahead of the season premiere.

“I can’t really say anything, I wish it all would wait to come out on the show and organically happen,” she explained.

Mellencamp added that there is a lot more to season 10 than the drama between Denise Richards and Brandi Glanville. The reality star did not go into any specifics, but we cannot wait to see what unfolds.

Bravo has not announced an official premiere date, but the new season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is expected to air sometime this spring.
