With the Season 11 cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills up in the air, fans have a suggestion. There is a renewed frenzy to bring actress Nicolette Sheridan to the Bravo hit show. It makes sense, as she has a connection to Lisa Rinna. They share a husband. Well, ex-husband, in Nicolette’s case. She was once Mrs. Harry Hamlin!
Additionally, the Dynasty actress was once married to Aaron Phypers, AKA Mr. Denise Richards.
Denise Richards Quit RHOBH
News broke hours before Wednesday’s RHOBH episode that Denise Richards won’t be back for another season. Season 10 of the Bravo show is wrapping up. The announcement came right before Part 2 of the epic reunion aired.
Sources are divided over why Denise quit. Andy Cohen blames stalled contract negotiations. But sources close to Denise say it was the toxic Season 10 that did her in. During Season 10, Denise came under fire for mom-shaming, badmouthing her co-stars and allegedly having an affair with RHOBH alum Brandi Glanville. Denise denies doing any of those things, especially the affair.
Despite her denials, she spent most of Season 10 arguing with her co-stars. Regardless of the reason, Denise will not be back for another season.
Fans Clamor for Bravo to bring on Nicolette Sheridan
Many RHOBH fans were SHOCKED when Lisa Rinna dropped the news on the show that her husband used to be married to Nicolette Sheridan. In fact, she alluded to Nicolette leaving Harry for singer Michael Bolton. This was a HUGE scandal in the 90s. But Nicolette denies that she cheated on Harry with the “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” crooner.

Now that Denise is leaving, there’s only one woman who can get the job done – The Former MRS. HAMLIN! Cast her now, Andy! • • • • #realhousewivesofbeverlyhills #rhobh #bravobravobravo #realhousewives #realityashhole #realitytv #bravotv #tagafriend #tagsomeone #tagyourfriends #tagyourself #bethennyfrankel #deniserichards #brandiglanville #kylerichards #erikajayne #nicolettesheridan #desperatehousewives #andycohen #lisarinna #doritkemsley #beverlyhills #wednesday #news #repost
Lisa bringing up Nicolette’s name intrigued viewers, but also set off a mini feud, per Bravo TV. When Lisa quipped that Nicollette was looking for a job, the Desperate Housewives star retorted, “I have a proposal…” Nicollette was joking that Bravo should hire her for RHOBH.
However, fans are not kidding about wanting her on the show. That want only intensified when they found out that Nicollette was ALSO once married to Denise Richards’ husband.
I recently heard someone suggest Nicolette Sheridan. I need that to happen. There’s a Rinna connection AND a Denise one (RIP Denise)— Moms and Murder Pod (@momsandmurder) September 11, 2020
The furor over Nicolette joining the show died down, but now it is burning again amid RHOBH drama.

Fans think bringing Nicolette on would be good payback for Lisa Rinna. Many fans are upset over the way Lisa treated her supposed friend this season. Prior to the fallout from Season 10, Lisa Rinna and Denise had been friends for over 20 years. However, Lisa kept attacking Denise over the affair allegations and they are no longer friends.
But one fan says that bringing Nicolette on would be the same “Mean Girl” behavior fans have been railing against.
y’all are saying it’s so wrong of the “mean girls” to gang up on denise but literally want nicolette sheridan to come on the show to team up w the other girls to gang up on rinna….make it make sense #RHOBH pic.twitter.com/S0M3vSyYGe— housewives correspondent (@orallycorrupt) September 11, 2020
You know Who Nicolette Sheridan Is, Right?
Nicollette Sheridan has a long list of acting credits. In many of her roles, she plays a man-stealing vixen. Most recently, she turned heads as Alexis on the CW Dynasty reboot. Of course, the incomparable Joan Collins played the original Alexis in the 80s.
Unfortunately, Nicollette chose to leave Dynasty after just two seasons.
It remains to be seen if fans will get their RHOBH dream casting. Follow us on social media for all the latest TV news.
