How to Watch

The former diamond holder reunited with the ladies of the 90210 while attending Garcelle Beauvais’ movie screening, and let’s just say her appearance shocked some attendees. Get all the details on Denise’s epic cameo, including an update on one of her friendships with a RHOBH ‘Wife, by reading below.

Denise Richards returns to RHOBH

The last time viewers saw Denise on RHOBH, she was making her dramatic exit from the Season 10 reunion. However, the actress seemed to be in better spirits on Wednesday night’s episode when she supported Garcelle at her event.

“Thank you for inviting me,” Denise told Garcelle while hugging her, to which she replied, “Of course.”

Denise didn’t just embrace Garcelle with open arms. She also extended her warm gesture to Erika Jayne and Crystal Kung Minkoff.

Dorit Kemsley gives an update on her friendship with Denise Richards

While the diamond holders seemed genuinely excited to mingle with Denise again, Dorit Kemsley, on the other hand, was shocked to be in the same room as her former cast member.

“I haven’t seen Denise in years, and then our contact kind of became less and less and less,” Dorit said in her confessional.

Though Denise and Dorit haven’t stayed in touch over the past few years, the duo appeared to have a good time like usual, with Denise even fangirling to the fashionista over Garcelle’s acting skills, saying, “I forgot how good of an actor she is,” trailing off with a laugh, adding, “You’re really good.”

Is Denise Richards coming back to RHOBH?

The mom of three won’t be a full-time cast member of RHOBH, but she will appear occasionally on the series. In fact, during a recent chat with BET, Garcelle expressed that Denise’s cameos made Season 13 "really fun” for her.

"Denise was great to come in because she's already familiar with the ladies — she understands the dynamics and has some crosses to bear," Garcelle told the news outlet. "She held on to a couple of things she wanted to get off her chest, which she did, and I'm proud of her for it."

As for if any drama follows Denise, well, she does clash with Erika, which was previewed in the RHOBH Season 13 trailer (check it out above).

"Denise brings it, and it's really fun so you'll enjoy it," Garcelle concluded.

Is Denise Richards still married?

Yes, Denise and her husband Aaron Phypers recently celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary. The couple began dating in December 2017 and officially became husband and wife on September 8, 2018.

As Denise told The Daily Dish at the time, "I am so happy to officially be married to the love of my life. I can't wait for everyone to go on this incredible journey with me this season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It has been a wild ride so far!"

Their beautiful wedding was held in Malibu and was featured on Season 9 of RHOBH.
