Denise Richards on why she joined RHOBH: ‘I just thought it would be fun to do’

Last week, it was announced that Denise Richards would be joining the cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. This week she explained why, and it’s not the reason I thought, which was that she’s not a good actress and this is the only way for her to be on TV. I’m serious, just Google “worst Bond girl.” You’ll see.

In an interview with Extra, Denise shared that she decided to join the show because, “I went through a lot and have been really private about a lot of things, and just in a really good place right now… and thought it would be fun, so I thought why not?”

Denise didn’t rush into this decision, asking advice of her friend and soon-to-be RHOBH co-star, Lisa Rinna. She said, “I just asked her about it, she just loves it and has so much fun, so I just thought it would be fun to do.” She added that she admires the other cast members, noting that, “They’re a strong group of women with strong opinions, and I love that and I respect that.” So which housewife is she going to get in a beef with?

Denise’s current boyfriend, Aaron Phypers, will appear on the show, hopefully in some sort of bedroom scene. Aaron, says Denise, is “a great guy” and is “game” to be a part of the show. As for her children making an appearance, she added, “I told them if they want to they can, if they don’t want to, it’s up to them, I don’t want to pressure.” Here’s a message from me to these kids: Run! Run far, far away!

As for her ex, Charlie Sheen, Denise insists that, “He and I are in a good place today. I always focus on that, and focus on the girls. They don’t need to be privy to any discord…I want them to see things to be positive.” This coming from a woman who agreed to be on the most catfighting-est show on TV. Maybe she really needs the money.

    Is it injectables or plastic surgery? I’m stunned, bc she was so gorgeous.

    • ocjulia says:

      Looks like fillers – and lot of them.

      • smcollins says:

        Whatever it is it ain’t good. The stress of having to deal with Charlie Sheen on a regular basis probably took it’s toll on her face more than she cared for, but still. Too much.

    • Betsy says:

      I know. They’re alsways always better looking before inflation. I think they no longer looked like their youthful selves, but they looked good. Oh well, it’s none of my business.

    • holly hobby says:

      Yeah it makes her face puffy. That is so unfortunate that she thinks she needs that.

    • AnneC says:

      It’s called LA face in Southern California. In person these women look even more horrific with their bizarre fake faces, spindly anorexic bodies and teen girl hair extensions. Sad.

  2. BELLE EPOCH says:

    Her face?

  3. elisabeth says:

    her face is as tight as a drum

  4. Busyann says:

    What happened to her face?

  5. Mrs. Darcy says:

    Yikes! When did she join the fillers brigade, is it part of the Real Housewives contract? :-0

    • Betsy says:

      It must be. She looks ghastly. I hope she can let them subside and never repeat it.

    • stacey says:

      yikes her face!! especially when she sticks out her tongue. GROSS

      i really like denise richards based on the way she’s conducted herself pretty low key over the years. but sad to see she is about to destroy her face with fillers!

    • Jag says:

      I was going to say that: did she have to over-fill her face to be part of the show? Stop now, Denise, before you completely ruin your beauty!

  6. Really says:

    That face..ugh…

    She’s broke. Needs cash.

  7. Jane says:

    The puppy in the last picture is hiding because it knows things will go down badly on RHOBH.

  8. Seraphina says:

    I was thinking the same thing. Another attractive woman giving into whatever youth saving mechanism and its altered her face in a negative way. Shame, because it is so apparent.

    I think she needs the money. Who on earth would open up their life to any reality show especially this one. It’s like WWE but for females on a different scale. You know there will be cat fights and smack talking.

    • holly hobby says:

      I think Charlie petitioned the court for reduced child support payments. So yeah she needs the cash.

  9. Lala11_7 says:

    These women REALLY should have listened to what Blanche Devereaux said on “Golden Girls” about not getting plastic surgery procedures done on her face…because she didn’t want to “disrupt the delicate beauty and balance of her features…”

    Blanche TRIED to warn the children…

  10. Maya says:

    She is to nice for that show but a woman has to earn.

  11. BooRadley says:

    I’ve never watched a second of any one of these shows but don’t you have to be you know married to be a housewife?

  12. Jess says:

    Dang her face makes me sad, she doesn’t need to do all that! She’s naturally stunning:( also, just looked through her Instagram and her boyfriend…..Good god. I hope he’s on the show, I’ll start watching.

  13. Leigh-Klein says:

    Good for her, because now Charlie Sheen can’t call her “a pathetic, jobless pig” anymore. Good for her.

  14. Murphy says:

    I wonder just how deep they’ll go on the Charlie Sheen stuff. Kyle always seems to be just able to keep them from diving too deep on the unsanctioned side of Big Kathy, but then again she got in on the ground floor and maybe has more pull.

  15. Harryg says:

    Will not end well.

  16. H says:

    Good for Denise. I always thought she was classy. I actually watched her reality show back in the day. What she had to deal with in her marriage and divorce with Charlie Sheen and remained a good mom. Well I don’t watch The Real Housewives I might tune in for her.

  17. Naomi11 says:

    I say she’s so FOS! She needs the money. I’m sorry, she used to look so pretty. Now, she looks like her face will crack any second. I will definitely not watch this show any longer, because I cannot stand this chicks voice. To me, it’s like nails on the chalkboard.

    I personally feel by joining the show, it’s like selling your soul to the devil, but that might be just me!

    I feel that all the women on all of the franchise comes off as really pathetic and desperate.

  18. theotherviv says:

    I think she got fillers because she was so so so so skinny when Charlie was going through all of his drug binges and she was trying to keep up appearances and then took in his other kids?
    She was starting to look very haggard and some doctor told her he would get rid of those facial wrinkles. All she needed to do was eat a lil more! She was beautiful. Still looking good, though but please stop stop stop the fillers.
    As for the job- she needs the money. Good for her. I wonder how much they’ll pay her. I hope it’s a whole lot.

  19. loveotterly says:

    I saw her in person a few years back and she was so stunning, like a doll. Now she’s looking extra filled or something :(

  20. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    What the hell did she do to her face?? She looks ridiculous.

  21. Natalie S says:

    I’m still heartbroken that Bethenny Frankle successfully badgered Carole Radziwill into leaving RHONY. Denise should join the NY franchise. It’s the best one and someone needs to be there to check Bethenny or next season is going to be a bloodbath.

    Hey, don’t judge me. It’s a group of obnoxious people forced to be around each other and take their issues out on each other instead of other people. It’s fascinating watching narcissists try to figure out how to interact with other narcissists.

    • Naomi11 says:

      I couldn’t stand Bethenny or Carole. I don’t think either of them had anything greatl to offer to the show. However, due to the sad passing of Bethenny’s ex, she now has a story line. To me, Carole was just so boring.

      If Carole gets the VIEW job, I will definitely stop watching that show.

      • Natalie S says:

        Carole wanted to come off as this laid back observer to avoid anyone coming at her but she was taking shots at Luann and Sonja right from her first season. Bethenny pretty much put a stop to all that.

        I’m sorry you don’t like Carole but I hadn’t heard she might be joining The View and I’m excited! I pretty much stopped watching because of screeching Megan McCain and I thought I was totally done when I heard Huntsman’s daughter may also join instead of Ana Navarro. Seeing how Carole was able to take on Bethenny’s gaslighting at the Berkshire dinner, I would watch her on The View.

      • Naomi11 says:

        @Natalie S:
        Yes, I read t on one of the gossip site. Sorry, I don’t remember which one, and it said that Carole was almost “begging’ to be on the VIEW!.

        Yeah, I’m sorry I don’t like her. There is just something about her that doesn’t sit well with me.

        I do get what you’re saying about her laid back approach, which was pretty cool. Maybe she started throwing shade to build up her character, because she knew she was leaving. I ‘ve heard that she was fired from the show, but nothing to confirm that yet.

  22. lucy2 says:

    I don’t blame her for taking the opportunity, but I hope her kids stay away from it. They’ve got enough to deal with.
    I can’t believe she went the fillers route. What a shame, and so unnecessary.

  23. Pandy says:

    Yeah she has too much filler for sure. So that will be fun to watch in its own way. I bet Erika picks on her as she doesn’t like anyone too pretty. Doubt there will be much Sheen bashing either.

  24. vesper says:

    This won’t end well….SIGH! I watched her short lived reality show and she is really funny and has a potty mouth so those RHOBH better watch out, she’s no wall flower. She has no filter.

    As for her face..she’s aged and not particularly well. I’d attribute it to stress, the sun and possibly injectables.

  25. Veri says:

    She looks like Leanne Rimes!!!
