After much speculation, actress Denise Richards has confirmed that she will join the cast of Bravo's hit series "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." The show, headed into its ninth season, is part of a franchise, which started in Orange County 13 seasons ago and has featured D-list actresses since day one. Original cast members included Kim and Kyle Richards, both who grew up in front of the spotlight and eventually, soap stars Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson hopped on board. Though Davidson and Kim exited, Kyle and Rinna have remained so Denise will join those two along with OG Lisa Vanderpump; singer Erika "Jayne" Girardi; fashion designer Dorit Kemsley; and accountability coach (and John Mellencamp's daughter) Teddi, who joined the series last year.
Andy Cohen of Bravo refused to comment on any comings and goings for RHOBH as he wanted to wait until the show was officially in progress but Denise Richards confirmed the news to People Magazine today. “I am so excited to join the cast of [RHOBH] as I am a huge fan of the show,” the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen shared. The news comes on the heels of Sheen revealing that he can no longer afford child support for his two children with Richards, Sam and Lola as well as twin sons with Brooke Mueller. This will be a great paycheck for the 47-year-old mother of three (she has an adopted daughter) and a way to get her back out in the public eye. We are very excited to see her join the cast and see what she brings. No return date for RHOBH has been set just yet.
