It's official! After much speculation, Denise Richards has confirmed that she'll be joining the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for Season 9. So, what made the Wild Things star decide to sign on?
The actress opened up about her decision when chatting with Extra. "I went through a lot and have been really private about a lot of things, and just in a really good place right now ... and thought it would be fun, so I thought why not?”
Plus, Denise already knew some of her fellow 'Wives. She's good friends with Lisa Rinna, for example, and Lisa had a hand in bringing her pal on board. "I just asked her about it; she just loves it and has so much fun, so I just thought it would be fun to do," Denise said.
As for the other Beverly Hills pals: "They’re a strong group of women with strong opinions, and I love that and I respect that," Denise added. "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.”
