The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Eileen Davidson briefly returned to the show for the July 15 episode, and although the cast has a few different faces than it did when she was a ‘Wife, she has explained that she actually has a few things in common with current cast member Denise Richards. During the June 14 episode of The Daily Dish podcast, Eileen described the first time she met Denise, and pointed out that the two women are much more alike than you may know.
Before running into one another at the premiere of Eileen’s husband’s movie, Seven Days to Vegas, the two women actually met while they were both working on television shows at CBS.
“I met Denise at CBS last year, interestingly enough,” Eileen explained. “It was very, very funny. We were in the commissary, and I saw her, and I went, ‘Oh my god, Denise, hi!’ And it was so funny, because first of all, she’s working at CBS, on a soap opera, she lives in Malibu, and we were at the commissary, and I kid you not, we both had on overalls, a tank top, flip flops, and our hair in a ponytail. I was cracking up. I go, ‘Oh my god. This is so funny.’”
Eileen and Denise are similar for another reason, as well. After a small misunderstanding about something Eileen had said about Denise’s behavior at the premiere, the women were able to clear the air pretty quickly.
On The Daily Dish podcast, Eileen mentioned that she had felt “something was going on” with Denise. When Denise heard what Eileen had said, she tweeted at her to squash the misunderstanding.
“Since you publicly spoke about this @eileen_davidson, when you asked if I was ok at your husband’s premiere, I was so nervous knowing I was having surgery in two days,” Denise wrote. “I was so sick and in so much pain, but we still wanted to be there. And I hadn’t told any of the other women about it.”
The next day, Eileen tweeted to explain that she and Denise chatted privately about the situation.
“When I saw this tweet this morning, I immediately texted Denise and told her I meant nothing negative or provocative by the comments I made,” wrote Eileen. “She called me right away and told me she meant nothing by the tweet she sent. I like Denise very much. I think she’s a very cool chick.”
