The anticipation is almost over, Bravoholics! The much-gossiped about Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premieres tonight, April 15. As you can imagine, the cast have been making the talk show and magazine rounds to promote the show.
In a recent interview, Erika Jayne confirms those rumors that Denise quit filming RHOBH, but not the way you think.
Tension Between RHOBH’s Denise and Co-Stars
The Wild Things actress joined RHOBH last season. She got along well with her co-stars, or so it seemed. She even had drinks with former RHOBH star Brandi Glanville. However, things seem to go downhill for Denise and her co-stars during Season 10.
Erika reveals to Hollywood Life that things got tense during the group’s trip to Rome later in the season. It was during that trip that the affair allegations came out, along with things Denise said about her co-stars to Brandi.
Denise Skipped Out on Filming When Asked Tough Questions, Erika Says
When confronted by her RHOBH co-stars, Denise bolted, Erika tells Us Weekly. The Broadway star admits that they became “frustrated” with Denise leaving after “five minutes” while they filmed “for hours.”
According to Erika, this happened several times at the end of filming. It brings back memories of RHOBH alum Lisa Vanderpump refusing to film with the rest of the cast during Season 9. She ultimately left the show after the season was over.
Some RHOBH Stars Take Denise’s Side
Despite Denise’s behavior, Erika insists no one was bullying the actress. She said, “We all had Denise’s back. It’s not, like, bash Denise.”
In fact, Erika says the ladies would welcome Denise back if she chooses to return, TV Shows Ace reports.
While the ladies may be willing to overcome their issues with Denise, not everyone was against her. Erika says that, as usual, the cast was “divided” over whose side to take. However, she doesn’t feel it created “too many ripples.”
But RHOBH Season 10 is More Than Denise Drama
It may seem like Season 10 is the Denise and Brandi show. But Erika insists that it is about more than the affair allegations. She says that the Denise and Brandi stuff didn’t even come out until toward the end of the season.
While she hesitates to call it “conflict,” Erika admits that the ladies had their own drama separate from Denise. Fans will have to tune in to see how it all plays out, she teases.
