Brandi Glanville is no longer a full-time cast member on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but she is in the center of the drama in an explosive trailer teasing upcoming episodes. In a new preview, Glanville reveals intimate details of the affair she claims to have had with Denise Richards, and she also claims that the Wild Things actress wanted to keep it a secret.
The rest of Season 10 appears to be all about the alleged affair between Richards and Glanville – or at the very least it will be one of the more dominant storylines. The new video clip shows former RHOBH star Glanville claiming that Richards and her husband Aaron Phypers have an “open thing,’ but she wanted to keep their tryst hidden from him.
“I f–ked her, woke up the next morning [and] she said, ‘Aaron can never know this. He’ll kill me,’” Glanville tells the RHOBH cast. Richards had not yet arrived at the sit-down dinner with the rest of her co-stars, but later in the preview when they confront her she says: “What the f–k? That is not true.”
According to Page Six, Richards stopped filming her sophomore season of RHOBH after she was confronted about Glanville’s allegations. Rumors have been swirling since the ladies were filming Season 10 late last year that Richards had an open marriage and she was hooking up with Glanville, but the actress has denied those rumors.
In the clip, Dorit Kemsley says that she believes Richards, but it doesn’t reveal where the other ladies in the cast stand on the issue. Newbie Garcelle Beauvais does say in the clip that she had been trying to get in touch with Richards, but she hadn’t been successful.
“I was supposed to meet up with Denise and she’s a no-show,” said Beauvais. “I’ve been calling her. Nothing.”
Richards does appear in the trailer with the rest of her castmates, but she is sitting at a table asking “please do not air this” because “it’s very bad.” She then says that Bravo has a choice to make, and if they want her to be on the show they “need to cut that.”
At the end of the trailer, Richards is talking to Lisa Rinna, who tells her that she thinks “it’s a lesson learned.” Denise Richards quickly replies “Oh, I learned a lesson.”
Glanville told People magazine in April that she and Richards hooked up “more than once,” but added that it was nothing serious and they just had some fun. In January, Richards’ rep denied Glanville’s claims and said what “really happened” between the two ladies will play out in Season 10.
“There is a lot of she said, she said going on. But it’s going to be very dramatic,” said the rep.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills air Wednesday nights on Bravo.
