Denise Richards was one of the popular cast members of ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’. She joined the show during its ninth season. Her debut season went well and she soon became a fan favorite. However, Season 10 wasn’t as smooth as she had expected.
During Season 10, Denise was at the center of all the drama. From being accused of making the other housewives feel like "bad mothers" to her alleged affair with Brandi Glanville, Richards had a lot on her plate. Things got really bad for the actress when she realized that aside from her friend Garcelle Beauvais and fellow housewife Dorit Kemsley, nobody else was on her side. Garcelle and Dorit made it very clear that they believed Richards when it came to Brandi's claims about her and Richards having a month-long affair. Richards was shocked by how her friend, Lisa Rinna, didn't have her back. In fact, things got way out of hand and ugly during the reunion of Season 10 between the two ladies.
Now the news comes that she has quit the show and won’t be returning for Season 11. As per Variety, a representative of Richards confirmed the news.
