The 10th season of the American reality show, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has finally aired. Actress Brandi Glanville has made an explosive claim saying that she slept with Denise Richards. Yes, you read it right. After months of buildup, Brandi’s alleged affair with Denise is playing out on screen.
In Wednesday’s episode, the ex-Housewife confessed to Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave that she had allegedly hooked up with Denise Richards during her marriage to Aaron Phypers (Denise has repeatedly denied the affair.) As viewers recall, Brandi, made her season debut last week at Kyle’s gala auction.
In the show, Kyle invites Teddi over to discuss her upcoming baby shower, when her sister Kim Richards stopped by. Kim then revealed that Brandi was in the car outside, leading Kyle to invite her inside. After being brought up to date with all the happenings, Kyle told Brandi that Denise had been at odds with the women after they brought up threesomes in front of her kids. Things took an intense turn when Kim claimed that Denise ‘did something’ to Brandi.
Brandi said,” I don’t want to go into it. I just think you guys need to be careful with her, because she’s not who she pretends to be.” Talking about Denise, Brandi said, “When we met. We just hit it off. I thought she was the coolest chick. I saw her in April and I didn’t see her again until your party.” She continued, “Some s*** went down over those nine months that was really f—– up. It’s bad,” breaking down in tears.
While married, Brandi said she was cheated on and it destroyed her. She then emphasized that she would never knowingly take part in infidelity because of her past. Brandi alleges that Denise “put” her in a situation where she was “the cheater.” Brandi even indirectly implied that Denise and Aaron have an open marriage. However, Denise denied having an open marriage during an exchange with a fan on Instagram back in February.
Brandi explained in her confessional interview that once, she went to dinner with Denise, and the two got “wasted” and “go to the restroom and all of sudden we’re making out.” Brandi told Kyle and Teddi that Denise “wasn’t with Aaron at that time.”
In the episode, Brandi claims their alleged affair continued years later. Brandi said that when Denise invited her to her set in Northern California, she really wanted to hang out a lot. Brandi said, “I went and I wanted to get my own room, but Denise was like ‘No, just stay here. It’s fine. I’ll get you a rollaway bed,'” Brandi told Kyle and Teddi that Denise’s daughter and a friend were also staying with them.
Brandi went on saying, “That first night the girls were sleeping in a room downstairs and Denise had a room upstairs, and there was no rollaway bed, conveniently. So, I just slept in bed with Denise.” Continuing, “The first night I was there we just had a good night and then the next night we got really drunk and we kind of hooked up, we hooked up. When asked by Kyle, “Who is we,” Brandi said, “Denise and I.”
This prompted Teddi to ask, “Like kissed?” to which Brandi responded, “Like everything.” She then said, “I don’t want you guys to judge me … I’m bisexual, everybody knows it. My kids know that,” Brandi then began to tear up, saying that what happened with Denise made her “uncomfortable.”
Further talking about the alleged incident, Brandi added, “The kids were downstairs and we were in a loft and there was no door. I just couldn’t get into it and the next day she just said to me, ‘No matter what you do you can’t tell Aaron, he will kill me.'”
When asked by Teddi if she didn’t think it was cheating, Brandi said, “It wasn’t because we had already talked about it.” Brandi alleged that Denise and Aaron told her they have an open marriage. “I would have never slept with Denise if I thought Aaron wasn’t okay with it. He knew I was going out of town with her. He knew we made out before,” Brandi added.
Brandi claimed that afterwards, Denise kept texting her to make sure that ‘everything was kosher.’ “She made me believe I did something wrong, and then I had a breakdown and I told Kim, and Kim said, ‘she tricked you,'” Brandi said.
Brandi claimed Denise wanted to make sure she hadn’t told anyone about their hookup. Brandi then said, “Now she’s calling me telling me s— about Erika, s— about you guys. … She’ll say to me, ‘I just want you to know my private life is super private and I would never tell your secrets.'”
During the confession, Kyle said, “Brandi can be a lot of things, but I don’t believe she’s a liar.” Adding further, “I think I’m just realizing that I don’t think any of us know Denise at all.”
Later in the episode, after landing in Rome, Teddi told Lisa what Brandi had claimed. Next week’s episode is sure going to be interesting as the women will be confronting Denise about Brandi’s allegations.
