Are Denise Richards and Aaron Phypers okay?
Following months of rumors regarding Richards’ alleged affair with her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star, Brandi Glanville, an insider is revealing the status of their marriage.
“Denise and Aaron have been doing really well,” a source close to the couple revealed to Hollywood Life days ago.
As fans of the Bravo reality series will recall, Richards was seen tying the knot with Phypers near their home in Malibu, California during the show’s ninth season last year.
“[Denise and Aaron] have no idea where these supposed issues of cracks in their marriage have come from, but she’s just been really, really busy traveling for work,” the insider continued.
Because Richards’ supposed hookups with Glanville were rumored to have taken place last year, after Richards and Phypers’ September 2018 wedding, many have assumed that the couple’s marriage has been negatively impacted.
However, as fans can see on social media, nothing seems to have changed between them in the weeks since the rumors first surfaced.
Throughout the upcoming 10th season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the Hollywood Life insider revealed, fans will “see him [Aaron] stick by her side.”
“He’s really there for her and you could even say this season has brought them closer together,” the source continued.
Richards first joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in the summer of 2018 and the following year, she rejoined the cast, retaining her full-time position, for the series’ upcoming new episodes.
While there have been a number of rumors suggesting Richards will not be included in the full 10th season, the Hollywood Life insider said those rumors are untrue.
“Denise plans on fulfilling all of her contractual obligations for this season of Housewives,” the source stated. “Some of the drama has been unnecessary, but there have been some great times and she is happy to be able to be a part of the show.”
According to the report, Phypers and Richards’ children, including daughters Sam, 15, Lola, 14, and Eloise, 8, are “supportive of her being on the show.”
Throughout the many reports of a romance between Richards and Glanville, Glanville has teased fans online of potential information regarding their relationship.
In one tweet, Glanville mentioned having receipts and in another, she spoke of “blackmail” before telling fans she’d been “Denised.”
Even Lisa Vanderpump has spoken about the issue, telling Entertainment Tonight last month that she’d heard of the shocking report.
“I just hear a little about a hookup situation,” she shared. “But I haven’t heard much about it all. No comment on that one! I won’t be [watching this season.]”
