Why ‘RHOBH’ Star, Denise Richards Joined the ‘BH90210’ Cast

Fans of 902010 will get to see the cast together once again soon on BH90210. Now that we’re getting closer to the premiere date we are finding out more about the rest of the cast.

Denise Richards, who can be seen on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (RHOBH), will be playing a character. Find out what her connection is to the original run of the show and more.

The cast is returning for BH902010

Most of the original cast of 90210 has reunited for BH90210. Luke Perry wasn’t signed on for the reboot before he passed away from a stroke.

This reboot will be very different given the cast will be playing heightened versions of themselves. Jason Priestley, Jenny Garth, Shannen Doherty, Tori Spelling, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green, and Gabrielle Carteris are all returning to play themselves.

Drama followed the first run of the show and the same thing reportedly happened this time around. Showrunner Patrick Sean Smith and several writers reportedly quit the show. Doherty later responded to the reports.

“There has been many stories floating around about this show and me. One of the reasons I hesitated to say yes was for this crap,” she wrote in a caption of a post on Instagram. “The only thing I’m a control freak over is my health. Trying to stay healthy and positive.”

Tori Spelling announced that Denise Richards will be on BH90210
