Things are finally looking up for Kim Richards, because we’ve learned she’s off probation after the seemingly endless saga that started with her Beverly Hills Hotel bust … back in April 2015! Sources close to the situation tell us Kim recently…
Denise Richards is the newest cast member on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” but she’s already getting the most attention … thanks to her wedding!! Denise — rocking a stunning, leggy dress — tied the knot with actor Aaron Phypers…
We told you before it was officially announced, folks: Denise Richards is joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
All of the Real Housewives are stars as part of the franchise, but Richards will be among those who were famous for years and years as actresses before they stepped into the world of reality television.
That is why she has reportedly secured a first-rate contract.
We have the details on that below … along with a report from RadarOnline that says that producers are encouraging the other Housewives to not hold back on account of Richards' celebrity status.
Well, at least one of the actress' new costars is already prepared to throw down without pulling any punches.
There's drama afoot. Take a look:
1. So, Denise Richards is joining RHOBH’s cast
2. By banking, we mean cash
3. That’s music to her ears
4. And producers have a request for the cast
5. One cast member has already volunteered
6. Erika Jayne is down to throw down
Nicollette Sheridan’s officially done being a housewife … her divorce is now final, so it clears the way for her ex’s relationship with Denise Richards. According to new legal docs obtained by TMZ … the ‘Desperate Housewife’ and…
Kyle Richards sounds like she knows something … about a possible Charlie Sheen appearance on “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” We got Kyle Saturday at LAX, and she says flat out … it’s possible Charlie will make an appearance on the show. As…
Look out, all Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Someone who has dealt for years with Charlie Sheen is headed your way.
So she’s ready for anything!
Indeed, following weeks of rumors and innuendo, Denise Richards confirmed on Thursday via a statement to People Magazine that she has joined the cast of this long-running Bravo franchise.
“I am so excited to join the cast, as I am a huge fan of the show,” Richards said simply today, adding of the ninth season to come:
“I am looking forward to spending time with all the ladies… and hopefully meeting Boy George!!”
(Confused? Richards is referencing her close friendship with fellow star Dorit Kemsley, whose husband, Paul, is Boy George’s manager. For real!)
On future episodes of this wildly popular program, Richards will join Kemsley, Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Erika Girardi and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave for a bunch of scripted drama and craziness.
And this won’t be her first time on reality television, either.
The actress actually starred on two seasons of It’s Complicated, a series that chronicled her life as the mother of two and the ex-wife of someone such as Sheen.
It ran on E! from May 2008 through July 2009 — and it wasn’t received too warmly by critics.
Wrote Variety at the time as a review:
“She’s traded on her sexuality to become one of those public figures who cavorts with other public figures, and we (or, at least, those of us inclined to watch and read about such fluff) are voyeurs.”
The series also earned a D from the Boston Herald, who summed it up, after critic Mark A. Perigard watched the first episode, as follows:
“Denise Richards’ life is one steaming pile of pig poop…Literally
Still, Bravo jumped at the chance to hire Richards.
“I love Denise Richards, wouldn’t it be so cool to see Denise Richards as a Housewife?” producer and talk show host Andy Cohen said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight last week.
At the time, he refused to confirm whether she’d actually be on the show, of course, simply teasing:
“The thing about it is, we don’t announce casting until the show’s about to come out. So, you’re not going to hear anything from me for a while.”
That much is true, we suppose: We still have not heard from Cohen on this casting.
But he and Richards’ new co-stars will likely comment on her addition soon.
An Illinois resident, Richards is likely best known professionally for having made out with Neve Campbell in the movie Wild Things.
She also appeared on episodes of Jane the Virgin, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce and something called Vanity.
On the big screen, she last had a role in the film The Toybox, which featured family members who were killed off by their haunted RV.
Are you psyched for Denise Richards to be a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills?
Denise Richards isn’t about to let a little thing like her zip code keep her from joining “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” … which is why she slashed the price on her Hidden Hills mansion to move. Sources close to the situation tell us…
Remember the days of Denise Richards: It’s Complicated? The series debuted about a decade ago. it also came to an end almost a decade ago. That’s life.
But it looks like Denise is poised to return to reality television — but this time, as part of a successful franchise.
Denise is poised to join The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
A source tells People that Denise Richards is in talks to join the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for the series’ 9th season.
“It’s not final yet,” their insider tells them of the negotiations.
But the source says that “It’s very close.”
That’s great news for fans, and could be even better news for Bravo.
The insider says: “Everyone is really excited about the possibility of having her on board!”
You would think that Denise Freaking Richards joining the cast would take nothing more than her expressing an interest, but things aren’t always so simple.
“Denise,” a second insider reveals. “Has been wanting to join the show for a long time.”
Well, dang. What’s the delay?
“She’s a huge Housewives fan and watches all of the shows,” the source continues.
If you imagine that just being a huge fan is enough to get you on the cast, though, you should think again.
But Denise has more than just fame to make her a total shoe-in for the role.
For starters, she’s already part of that world.
“And she has close relationships with many of the women in real life,” the insider explains. “Including Kyle Richards and Lisa Rinna.”
Lisa Rinna just celebrated turning 55 with a nude selfie, reminding everyone why she’s a delight. But why hasn’t Denise joined the show before now?
“The timing was never right for her in the past,” the source reveals.
Okay, so that explains it. Timing for Denise and for Bravo needs to line up just right. We can absolutely understand that.
Right now, however, it’s become clear to the showrunners that Denise is exactly what the show requires for its ninth season.
“But,” the insider says. “The producers needed to shake the dynamic of the show up.”
Reality shows can stagnate, and the easiest way to change that is by shuffling the cast. Real Housewives is well known for this.
The source points out that Bravo knew that they needed to make a change “after a season without much conflict.”
People mature and quash feuds, which is great for them. But it doesn’t make for good television.
Denise could really spice things up.
But Denise isn’t intended as any old change. She’ll be an interesting addition on her own.
“She’s going to be a great fit,” the insider states.
That’s no surprise. She’s no stranger to television.
The source reminds everyone: “She’s not afraid of the drama.”
We should think not — we’re talking about a woman who was married to Charlie Sheen.
“And she lives a glamorous, Hollywood life,” the insider says. “Which the show looks for.”
We hope that this deal doesn’t fall through.
