“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” fans are concerned after watching Denise Richards‘ husband, Aaron Phypers, threaten to “crush” her “f—ing hand” following a heated argument with her castmates. In Wednesday’s episode, the housewives ganged up on Denise bringing up her issue with the threesome barbeque talk again. This time, Aaron was quick to shut the girls down but in the midst of standing up for his wife, things took a nasty turn when he appeared to threaten her with physical harm.
It all went down at Kyle Richards when she decided to have the housewives over for a backyard barbeque at her Beverly Hills home. Alarm bells began going off when Denise and Aaron showed up without their three children when it was supposed to be an event for the entire family. After admitting she purposely didn’t bring the kids because of her co-stars’ behavior in weeks prior, the housewives sounded off on the couple. Denise Richards immediately instructed her husband to get up because they were leaving and ditching the party.
As the duo walked hand in hand out of Kyle Richards’ home, she and the camera crew followed them but Denise wasn’t having it. Aaron continued to fight with Kyle and Denise told him to stop because the camera was on them. But he didn’t listen and attempted to continue arguing with Kyle so Denise tugged on his arm and instructed him again to shut it down. Aaron’s annoyance then turned to his wife and he threatened to hurt her.
“Don’t tell me what to say, I’m going to crush you f—ing hand,” seemed to be his exact words. Fans immediately took to social media to blast the star’s husband with many expressing their shock over his heat of the moment comment. “Umm Am I the only one who heard Denise’s husband say he was going to crush her hand if she didn’t stop talking?! What kind of ‘spirituality’ was that, cause I don’t want it!” one person wrote on Twitter.

Several were concerned for Denise Richards’ safety. “I hope your husband doesn’t try to ‘crush your hand’ regularly,” another fan commented, adding, “It’s clear he’s abusive towards women. You should have left him in the massage room.” A third person sounded off, saying, “So your husband talks to you like that because if my husband ever told me he was going to crush my hand I would crush his dick.” As of this post, Denise Richards has yet to comment on the hand crushing controversy.
