Denise Richards‘ “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” co-stars are reportedly steering clear of the drama surrounding her supposed affair with cast member Brandi Glanville, which was first mentioned during Wednesday’s episode.
On July 24, Hollywood Life revealed that because the Bravo reality cast is well aware of the way in which Denise sent a letter of cease and desist to Brandi during season 10, they prefer to avoid discussing the matter because they don’t want to face legal ramifications of their own from the actress.
“The other ladies are really trying to stay out of the Denise and Brandi drama now,” an insider revealed. “They’re all just trying to keep their mouths quiet, especially after Brandi was served the cease and desist so they see she means business and they don’t want to deal with that.”
Denise sent a letter of cease and desist to Brandi during production months ago in an effort to keep her quiet in regard to what had supposedly took place between them.
While the ladies of the Bravo reality series don’t want to weigh in on the topic of an alleged affair between Denise and Brandi, they do want to see her get honest.
“They just want [Denise] to be truthful and feel like she’s not about a variety of things, but they really don’t care if she did or didn’t have the affair. Most of them seem to believe Brandi,” the insider explained.
That said, the majority of the cast hasn’t seen or spoken to Denise, outside of the recent virtual taping of their season 10 reunion.
According to the Hollywood Life insider, Denise may be somewhat estranged from her cast mates but she’s still party of a group text with them.
“They have a group text that they’ll chat on about certain things and Denise will reply when she needs to, but that’s it,” the source shared.
During last Wednesday’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Brandi claimed Denise and her husband Aaron “had an understanding” and that Denise “could be with girls if she wanted to. And as long as, you know, it wasn’t with a guy.”
During a trip, Brandi claimed she and Denise “hooked up.”
“I just slept in the bed with Denise…the first night, I was there, we just had a good night, we’re hanging out, and then, the next night, we got really drunk and we were so f***ed up, and … we just kind of hooked up. We hooked up,” she said.
