After both of them starred on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Denise Richards’ relationship with Lisa Rinna suffered greatly, and now the former is talking about how their friendship is ending.
Lisa Rinna and I would still be friends even if we weren’t on the program. Living, traveling, or working with people may teach you a lot about them, in my opinion. We collaborated on the same film since I had never worked with Rinna before; oddly, my ex-husband was in it. “I didn’t work with her, and I didn’t have a scene with her,” the 52-year-old actress stated on the “Just B with Bethenny Frankel” podcast.
“As for me, if Aaron and I were on the show in ten years, would we get married? Certainly. She spoke of her spouse, Aaron Phypers, saying, “The show itself—that environment can change people themselves.” “Definitely. Although Lisa Rinna was well-known, in my opinion, she wasn’t as well-known as she is now. She and I will never be pals. How, and at what cost, could she give up a friendship for a companion that would not stay forever?”
“I also had a negative experience. My experience with Lisa Rinna was so bad that I thought, ‘OK, what would happen next season?’ I don’t know if they will ask me back. I just did a few episodes. I didn’t call to say, ‘Hey, can I come back?’ I have no ego, either. After my second season, because I wanted it to be real, I said, ‘How would it make sense if all the women f—— hate me?’ Almost everyone did except for Garcelle [Beauvais] and Sutton [Stracke], but everyone else was such an a—— to me. I thought, ‘How would it make sense for me to come back?’ That’s where you learn the process of what the show is,” she added of potentially coming back to the reality show now that Rinna is no longer on it.
Rinna, 60, briefed Richards about the show, as OK! previously reported, and eventually convinced her to join on. Sadly, a rumor put an end to their long-lasting friendship. Although Brandi Glanville claimed to have had a romantic night out with Kyle Richards, she refuted this to Teddi Mellencamp and Richards.
The makeup mogul then attacked Richards during the reunion.
“I watched #RHOBH last night,” Richards later wrote on social media. “While I have empathy for Lisa Rinna losing her mom, what is her excuse all the other years on the show for being so cruel & so vindictive?”
