Denise Richards is a legendary actress who is known for her roles in The world is not enough, Starship troopers, and more recently, The daring and the pretty. In 2019, however, Denise flipped the switch and joined reality television when she joined the ninth season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Denise had an amazing first season as a stay-at-home mom, but couldn’t handle the drama in her second season. She ended up leaving the show after her personal life became the full story of season 10. Denise did go on some pretty iconic dates during her short time on the show, however.
10 “I’m fucking Denise Richards”
Denise defending her celebrity against Kyle Richards was one of the most iconic moments of RHOBH history. Denise stated that she is Denise Richards and that her face appears in more magazines and websites than any other wife on the show.
There is nothing Denise can do without the paparazzi knowing about it and her marriage to Charlie Sheen will be talked about forever. She is an icon and a legend, Kyle better not forget.
9 “Bravo, Bravo, Bravo”
If there is a rule that housewives cannot make when filming, is breaking the fourth wall. Breaking the fourth wall essentially means admitting to the camera and the audience that you are on a reality show. For example, girls cannot look at the camera or speak to producers while they are filming. If they do, Bravo has to edit it.
Denise knew this and used it to her advantage. He knew that if he broke the fourth wall, Bravo would have to edit it and not use what they filmed. So when the group started talking about their “relationship” with Brandi Glanville, Denise yelled “Bravo, Bravo, Bravo” to get the cameras to stop rolling. Surprisingly, Bravo saved the footage anyway because it was too good to pass up.
8 “You can be a wild creature and a protective mom at the same time”
Denise vs. Brandi took over most of season 10. It was a she said / she said situation. Are they hooked or not? There were a few instances where Denise’s parenting skills were questioned during the season. To begin with, the housewives did not understand why Denise’s children and their friends were at the house for dinner.
And second, Brandi claimed that Denise’s kids were within earshot when the two got together. Regardless of the truth, Denise sees nothing wrong with being both a “wild thing” and a “protective mother.”
7 “But let’s get a steak and go to a strip club”
Denise was lucky to have her husband Aaron as her support system, but at the same time, she got involved in a drama that she should never have been involved in.
While the two were having a barbecue at Kyle Richard’s house, Aaron stood up for his wife and got into an argument between Denise and most of the group. The couple ended up leaving Kyle’s early for it. When Lisa Rinna ran up to them to ask where they were going, Denise said dryly that she and Aaron were going to the strip club for a steak. This became a meme instantly.
6 “I sweat a lot thinking what to wear with these girls”
The women of Beverly Hills know how to stop traffic. They have expensive tastes and epic closets. Women like Dorit and Erika are always pushing the limits with fashion and subtly trying to outdo each other. But Denise? She is more of a laid back girl, Malibu type.
In her first season of the show, she was completely shocked when it came to dressing up with these girls. Whenever the dress code was relaxed, Denise appeared in comfortable clothes while everyone else was in high-end fashion. It was identifiable to see her sweat around these women.
5 “Do these girls even dress for breakfast? They’re lucky I even put on a fucking bra.”
While on vacation in season 9, the girls told Denise to dress casually when they meet for drinks. But, as usual, no one dressed casually. Denise appeared in a tank top and shorts while everyone else wore dresses and rompers.
Similarly, breakfast was the same deal. Denise told cameras that the girls were lucky she wore a bra for breakfast and was surprised that women like Erika and Dorit had full glamor.
4 “I’m going to put a shitty plate”
In season nine, Denise didn’t need much of an introduction. If fans didn’t know her from her filmography, they definitely knew her from her relationship with Charlie Sheen.
When Denise spoke about her relationship with Charlie, she pointed out that she filed for divorce when she was pregnant with her second child because she was no longer sober. As time passed, the two of them became cordial again. She even invited him over for Thanksgiving! However, when he showed up for Thanksgiving, he brought a paid escort with him. He had no choice but to put a plate for him at dinner. At the end of the day, he was smart to get out of that marriage.
3 “Brandi Glanville is your source?”
When Brandi Glanville appeared on the scene in season 10, the women had a lot of questions for her. Did he really sleep with Denise while Denise was married? Denise denied everything, but Brandi had many receipts proving that the two had some kind of relationship together.
Denise was confronted by women many times and she iconically joked that Brandi was her source … how could they believe her? All that changed when Brandi showed the women her text messages.
two “The first time I saw Aaron, I thought he was hot as balls”
Before Denise and Aaron messed with Kyle’s dinner, the couple looked adorable in season nine. Denise told cameras that she met Aaron when he attended her clinic for laser therapy.
To quote Denise, she thought “he was hot as balls”. The two began dating soon after and later got married.
1 “…Who told you that?”
This date doesn’t sound like much, but it’s full of secrets. Denise and Lisa Rinna had been friends for over 20 years. And now thanks to Brandi, their friendship seemed broken. In one scene, Denise stopped next to Rinna to talk about things, but they ended bitterly.
As soon as Lisa Rinna mentioned that Denise sent Brandi a cease and desist, Denise came back. She didn’t know that Lisa knew. She coldly asked, “Who told you that?” and the mood changed dramatically.
