Denise Richards in talks to be the 'only new person' to join the cast of 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is looking for another cast member to join their show and it looks like Denise Richards might be the chosen one.
Denise Richards in the running to be cast as the new housewife in 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'. A source close to the actress told People that Denise is in talks with the showrunners to be part of the upcoming season 9 of the show. “It’s not final yet, it’s very close,” said the source. “Everyone is really excited about the possibility of having her on board!” Dennis is a mother of three daughters: Sam, 14, Lola, 13 and Eloise, 7. She shares Sam and Lola with her ex-husband Charlie Sheen. In 2011 she adopted Eloise. While it might come as a surprise to many, it so happens that Denise was in talks about joining the show for a long time but the timing wasn't just right for her.
“Denise has been wanting to join the show for a long time," a second insider tells the magazine. “She’s a huge Housewives fan and watches all of the shows." To make things easier for Denise, she's already friends with many of the stars on the show including Kyle Richards and Lisa Rinna," the source added. "The timing was never right for her in the past, but the producers needed to shake the dynamic of the show up after a season without much conflict. She’s going to be a great fit. She’s not afraid of the drama. And she lives a glamorous, Hollywood life — which the show looks for," the source continued.
Meanwhile, a different source told E! that Denise has already shot some of the episodes along with her kids for the show and the showrunners believe that her story may be a good storyline to attract the audience. She is currently in a relationship with Aaron Phypers, who was previously married to actress Nicolette Sheridan. The E insider says the popular '90s actress is currently "being tested" for the reality series and "the only new person" in possible talks to join the cast. "They're hoping for a casting similar to Lisa Rinna's," the source explains. "Someone who's already famous with an interesting [and] unusual family life."
The rumors about Denise and Aaron started surfacing in May. The two quickly made their relationship official as they were spotted holding hands and indulging in PDA on various occasions. While her relationship with Aaron seems to be going strong, her previous relationship with ex-husband, Charlie was not too good. The two met in 1991 on the set of Loaded Weapon 1 and soon began dating. In 2001, the pair got engaged and a year later they got married.
However, their relationship did not last for long as in 2005, when Denise was pregnant with their second child, she filed for divorce. The couple tried to reconcile in between but things did not seem to work out for them yet again. In 2006 Denise confirmed that she will be going forward with the divorce. She then sought a restraining order against Charlie, alleging death threats against her. In November 2006 their divorce was finalized.
If Denise does come on the show, this will not be her first reality show. She previously came on a reality program on E!, 'Denise Richards: It's Complicated', which premiered on May 26, 2008. It looks like the girls will get yet another chance to appear on a reality television show if Denise confirms her debut on Real Housewives.
