The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans, can you believe we’re halfway through Season 10 already? It must be true because Bravo just dropped a midseason trailer of all the drama coming and spoiler alert: it’s all about Denise Richards.
Denise’s Big Secret Comes Out, Courtesy of RHOBH Alum Brandi Glanville.
“I f**ked her.” Those were the words Brandi spoke about Denise that caused the jaws to drop.
RHOBH stars Garcelle Beauvais, Kyle Richards and Dorit Kemsley were present when Brandi dropped her bombshell allegation. Teddi Mellencamp, Erika Girardi and Lisa Rinna were also at the dinner. Denise Richards, however, had not yet arrived.
Speculation has circled the Bravo show since earlier this year about what, exactly, happened between Brandi and Denise. It seems fans will get their answer about Denise’s secret very soon.
In the explosive trailer, the cameras capture Denise’s reaction to the allegations. When confronted by the other women, the Wild Things actress summed it up in three words: “What the f**k?”
“That is not true,” Denise tells her co-stars in the midseason trailer.
Garcelle and Dorit Worry After Denise Skips Out on an Event
Garcelle and Denise are friends from long before either joined RHOBH. In the trailer, Dense is a no-show to a party where she earlier agreed to meet up with Garcelle. Denise’s absence worries her friend, but Garcelle reveals Denise doesn’t answer her calls.
Dorit also attempts to reach out to Denise to no avail. While the other women are reeling from the allegations, Dorit chooses sides. “I believe Denise,” she says.
Denise Begs Production Not to Air Affair Rumors on RHOBH
The mom-of-three tries her hardest to get Bravo not to air the allegation. As fans know from the Season 10 premiere, Denise resorts to breaking the fourth wall, yelling “Bravo, Bravo, f**king Bravo.” She did this to keep the show from using the footage.
However, it didn’t work. Viewers know that Denise uttered the phrase but we haven’t seen the context yet. Bravo showed the dinner party where she seemingly made the comments, but are likely saving the actual footage for later in the season.
So, clearly, Denise’s pleas to leave the footage on the cutting room floor fall on deaf ears. In fact, it seems the entire Season 10 is built around the drama.
When her pleas don’t work, the Starship Troopers star resorts to threats. According to People, Denise gives Bravo a choice: cut the footage or she’s gone. In the teaser, Denise says,
“Bravo has a choice. If they ever want me to be on the show … they need to cut that.”
Despite her threats, Denise has repeatedly denied quitting the show. Viewers will have to see how it plays out.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the midseason trailer is the appearance of former RHOBH star Lisa Vanderpump. The restaurateur chats with Denise about the situation. Lisa tells Denise that “it’s a lesson learned,” and Denise readily agrees.
The midseason trailer isn’t all Denise drama. The cast enjoys a fun trip to Rome, Italy. Check out the teaser below.
