It was a big deal when someone with as big a name as Denise Richards joined the franchise in Season 9. Almost as soon as she joined the cast, the rumor that she had an affair with former “RHOBH” star and occasional trouble maker Brandi Glanville began to spread. Richards adamantly denied. Glanville, for her part, was upset about the reported romance because she was under the impression that Richard’s husband was cool with it, but apparently, he wasn’t, per Us Weekly.
Glanville showed Lisa Rinna some texts reportedly between herself and Richards that convinced Rinna that Richards was lying. Richards continued to irritate the cast throughout the season by being overly selective about what she shared on the show. For example, if someone brought up the Glanville drama, Richards would scream, “Bravo, Bravo, Bravo.” There is an unwritten rule that producers won’t include footage that breaks the fourth wall in the final edit, per Page Six. They never reached a resolution and Richards left the show claiming that Rinna had thrown away a good friendship by siding with Glanville.
That’s not the end of the story, though. Though the friendship is firmly over, Rinna has continued to go after Richards’s marriage, claiming that Richards hit on “Real Housewives of Orange County” stars at BravoCon, per Hollywood Life. We don’t know Richard’s opinion on that one, but we do know she’s done with Bravo Bravo Bravo and Rinna Rinna Rinna.
