Sisters Kyle Richards and Kim Richards may have been the first Richards to join The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills — but they wouldn't be the last. Denise Richards is the newest addition to RHOBH on Season 9 and we're here to confirm that there is absolutely no relation between her and Kyle and Kim. However, that doesn't mean the actress has zero history with anyone in the other Richards fam.
On the Season 9 premiere of RHOBH, Kyle revealed that she and Denise have been rubbing elbows in the same circles for years. "11 years ago, I was part of this 'Hollywood moms' group," Kyle said. "It was Lisa Rinna, Denise Richards, Ali Landry, myself, Alison Sweeney, and we would get together now and then. Everyone would bring a potluck, whatever their favorite dessert was, and that's how I got to know Denise originally."
Kyle revealed that not only has she known Denise for years but she also goes way back with Denise's ex-husband Charlie Sheen. "I've known Charlie Sheen since I was 13 or 14 years old," she shared. "He happened to be the best friend of my ex-boyfriend, C. Thomas Howell. Let's just say that I didn't love when my ex-boyfriend was hanging out with Charlie. You never knew what was going to happen... or what they could bring home."
The two actresses appeared together on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in 2013, where Andy Cohen read the ladies the following question from a viewer: "Denise, if you had to do another girl-on-girl kiss again, who would you want it to be?" Denise replied, "Kyle." Take a look at the moment above and hear more about what Denise loves about Kyle, below.
Kim doesn't appear to have had such a storied history with Denise. Back in August, she told PEOPLE, “I don’t know her; I’ve just seen her, but I felt like, ‘OK, so I didn’t come back, so [bring on] another Richards. Add it to the list. I think she’s beautiful and I wish them all the luck.”
However, it looks like the goodwill between Kim and Denise may have ended, if the previews for the rest of the RHOBH Season 9 are any indication. See what we mean in the trailer below.
