With all the chatter surrounding her kids and husband Aaron Phypers' interactions with her friends, Denise Richards decided to sit down and have a chat with her longtime pal Lisa Rinna in the July 15 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Denise and Lisa discussed much of what had gone down this season, from the ladies' threesome conversation to the girls' trip to Santa Barbara to Aaron's attitude toward the other Beverly Hills Housewives.
Lisa told Denise that she and the other women didn't feel like she was being completely open and honest with them, while Denise expressed hurt over Lisa not having her or her kids' backs. "Well, let's leave it where it is. I think it's a lesson learned. I do," Lisa concluded her conversation with Denise, who replied, "Oh, I learned a lesson."
Denise later revealed in an interview during the episode exactly what she took away from that discussion with Lisa. "My lesson learned is I know where I stand with Lisa Rinna," she said. "I don't feel like I can trust her like I used to."
Erika Girardi weighed in on this tense tête-à-tête during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen: @ Home on July 15, particularly Denise's last statement about no longer being able to trust Lisa. "Hey, listen, we all have our own point of view. I know for a fact you can trust Lisa Rinna," Erika said in the below clip. "They're gonna have to work it out, and I'm sure in the coming episodes, we're gonna see that happen."
But to Erika, it's Denise who we're seeing a different side of this season of RHOBH. "Well, it's definitely a different Denise this season than last season," she explained during the WWHL: @ Home After Show, below. "Last season, it was happy endings and 'I'm chill.' And this year it's 'don't talk' and 'I'm offended.' So it's kind of a 180."
