Kyle Richards. Kim Richards. Denise Richards. Apparently The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have not had a shortage of ladies with just that last name in the crew over the years. Following the news that Denise is joining the squad in Season 9, RHOBH alum Kim recently weighed in on her hanging with Kyle and the fashionistas of the 90210 — oh, yeah, and that weird coincidence that they are all named Richards.
“I don’t know her; I’ve just seen her, but I felt like, ‘Okay, so I didn’t come back, so [bring on] another Richards. Add it to the list,’” she joked to PEOPLE. “I think she’s beautiful and I wish them all the luck.”
It was confirmed earlier this month that Denise would be the latest Richards to appear on RHOBH (though, we should note, she is of no relation to Kyle and Kim). “I am so excited to join the cast of [RHOBH] as I am a huge fan of the show," she told PEOPLE at the time. “I am looking forward to spending time with all the ladies… and hopefully meeting Boy George!!”
And Denise certainly seems to have a pretty good grasp on what bonds these ladies, telling Extra recently, "They’re a strong group of women with strong opinions, and I love that and I respect that. I think at the end of the day, no matter what goes on between all of them, they are there for each other and support each other, and I think that is really wonderful.”
