"Alex Baskin and I met when I joined ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ and I loved doing that show. This is the perfect partnership for our family’s series, as our lives are full of fun, love, and unpredictability, and we can’t wait for the audience to share this adventure with us," she added.

Will Denise Richards return for 'RHOBH' next season?

Denise is open to the idea of returning to 'RHOBH'. Making a few notable cameos in the just-finished 13th season, it seems she's ready for more if the opportunity arises. "I always say, 'Never say never,'" Denise told PEOPLE. This comment comes despite Denise's frequent clashes with Erica Jayne throughout her appearances on the show.

In the latest season, it seemed like the two ladies were working through some past issues. Despite previous conflicts, Denise's comments suggest a potential return to the program, as she hasn't completely ruled it out.

What happened between 'RHOBH' stars Denise Richards and Erica Girardi?

Denise had briefly returned to 'RHOBH' after previously leaving the program. This time around, she appeared in a few episodes and had a significant confrontation with her castmate, Erica.

Denise expressed her frustration with Erica after she brought up threesomes in front of Denise's young children in 2019. Though Erica stated that she had apologized to Denise for the incident, the disagreement worsened when Erica revealed Denise's eldest daughter, Sami's OnlyFans account.

"I wouldn’t have brought up Denise's daughter had she not pushed so hard,” Erica told Andy Cohen on 'WWHL' after the show’s premiere. "That's really the truth, and that’s the answer: I did not want to do this. I did not want to go there, and I really meant that. But if you want it, you can get it."
