Don’t call her a quitter.
Despite reports that “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Denise Richards stopped filming with the cast after a huge fallout, the actress is adamant that she didn’t exit the show.
“We were pretty much wrapped actually in December and I was asked to go to two events that we had,” Denise, 49, told “Extra”. “I did not make it to those. That was the extent of me stopping filming … I did not quit the show … The only people that said I quit are some of the people on the show, and they never asked if that was true or not.”
Denise could be referring to the cast’s January trip to New York City to see Erika Girardi as Roxie Hart in “Chicago” on Broadway. She and Sutton Stracke didn’t attend, but Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Teddi Mellencamp, Dorit Kemsley and Sutton Stracke all made the cross-country trek. Insiders told Page Six at the time that the only cameras rolling were on the ladies’ phones.
However, an insider told us that the mom-of-three was absent for other filming obligations — including Mellencamp’s baby shower — after the women got into a heated argument in Rome over her alleged affair with former cast member Brandi Glanville and allegedly talking negatively about her castmates.
“They confronted her in Rome because she was also s–t talking the girls to Brandi,” the insider said at the time, adding that Denise denied having an affair and talking poorly of her fellow “Housewives.”
However, a separate source told us that Denise had a prior obligation on the day of Mellencamp’s baby shower.
But Kyle didn’t see it the same way. While on SiriusXM’s “The Jenny McCarthy Show”, Kyle, 51, said, “[Denise] stopped, you know, basically showing up. She didn’t want to face anything or deal with anything, so she either would bring her husband or disappear.”
“That was something I really took issue with because I’ve been on the show for 10 years. There have been so many things have come up that were really, really painful over these 10 years … When you think about the things that people went through on this show, like, I never knew it was an option not to show up!”
