Denise Richards has begun filming her first season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but a new report claims that producers were worried the veteran cast members would be “too timid” around her because she is a celebrity. So, they made a point of telling Lisa Vanderpump, Lisa Rinna, Kyle Richards, Teddi Mellencamp, Erika Jayne, Camille Grammer, and Dorit Kemsley not to be afraid of raising a little hell.
“Producers have told them they want the drama and not to hold back,” says an insider. “Basically, they don’t want them to be kissing her ass.”
Radar Online is reporting that Richards could be making up to $1 million for her first season, and she may have signed a deal guaranteeing her at least four years on the popular Bravo series. This has reportedly “p***ed off” her co-stars, and at least one of them — Erika Jayne — has said she would not go easy on the Wild Things star.
The inside source claims that Jayne has already said she will treat Richards like everyone else, and if she “don’t like her, I don’t like her.”
Since Jayne is already “annoyed” about how many actresses are on the show, thinking it has “turned into a soap opera,” producers are hoping that she and Richards will go “toe to toe” this season. And, the insider says that is definitely a possibility.
But, if Kemsley and Grammer’s latest Instagram pics are any indication, Richards is already fitting right in with the cast. The RHOBH women are in the Bahamas, and Kemsley posted a pic of herself with Richards, Grammer, and Rinna showing off their bodies in swimsuits.
All of the women smiled in the pic, and Richards showed off her toned legs and abs while wearing a pink bikini. The other women looked just as good, with Grammer wearing a blue rash guard and white bikini bottoms, Kemsley rocking a yellow bikini, and Rinna in a sexy one-piece. Kemsley added the caption, “Support your local girl gang #90210.”
Grammer’s Instagram pic was a close-up selfie with Rinna and Richards on the beach.
And, if you are wondering how Denise Richards’ ex-husband Charlie Sheen feels about her joining RHOBH, he says he hasn’t really watched the show, but he knows it is popular and it will be good for her. And he’s “sure it’s going to be a ball.”
New episodes of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will return to Bravo later this year.
