While Season 10 of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is still in process of airing on Bravo, the cast members already recorded the reunion back on July 17. They did so virtually amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. After they were finishing filming, five of the women got together for an impromptu afterparty.
Kyle Richards shared a photo of herself with Lisa Rinna, Dorit Kemsley, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and Erika Girardi on Instagram and wrote, “When the wigs & the gloves come off.”
There were three glaring omissions from the post, however — Garcelle Beauvais, Sutton Stracke and Denise Richards were all missing.
During the July 29 episode of “Watch What Happens Live,” Beauvais addressed not getting the invite. “We did not get invited to, there was an ‘impromptu’ get-together after the reunion that we were not invited to,” she told Andy Cohen.
“Hashtag not invited,” Stracke added.
Richards and Mellencamp were guests on Wednesday night’s “What What Happens Live” and addressed the gathering after Cohen read them a fan question.
“Do you understand why Garcelle and Sutton were a little miffed they weren’t invited to your post-reunion hang? Or do you both stand by your decision not to invite them?” Cohen asked.
“I was actually miffed that they would think that, because you know Andy, at the end of a reunion, there’s no planned plan. You don’t know who’s going to be talking by the end of the evening. So it’s always an impromptu,” Richards said.
She continued, “I mean, every year over these 10 years, it’s been usually Lisa Vanderpump and me go to dinner, it splits off into three different groups. This was an impromptu. Lisa Rinna was like, ‘I could use a drink,’ and I’m like, ‘Why don’t you come over?’ So the ones that were talking, got together. It doesn’t work like that that there’s a party every time after the reunion. Never. Never, ever.”

It sounds like it was a rough reunion for Cohen, who said “I buried my face in tequila after that reunion” after Richards finished her explanation.
It’s no surprise that things would get crazy during the reunion given how much drama there’s been during this season. Much of it has centered around Bandi Glanville’s allegations that she had a one night stand with Denise Richards, who has strongly denied that they two had any kind of sexual encounter.
There’s also been drama between Beauvais and Rinna after she brought up the anorexia struggles Rinna’s daughter has gone through.
