After two seasons as a cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Denise Richards turned in her diamond and announced that she was leaving the series. Her exit came after the ongoing drama with "friend of" Brandi Glanville, which played out during the tense 10th season. Denise also found herself at odds with a lot of her co-stars, especially Lisa Rinna, during that time.

Almost as soon as she left, fans (and a few of her fellow castmates) began to wonder if the actress would ever return to the 90210-based series.

Garcelle hinted at the fact that Lisa Rinna would have to leave the franchise. Since her statement, fans have been wondering if Denise would come back to RHOBH.

Is Denise Richards coming back to 'RHOBH'?

It appears that Denise Richards isn't ruling out a possible return to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight in August of 2021, Denise spoke about coming back to the show.

She shared, "You know, I really did enjoy working on the show. I hate even to say working on it. I liked being a part of the show, and I had fun with most of the women, not all."

Even though Denise isn't currently on the series, her name does come up quite a bit. During her chat with ET, Denise joked, "I am going to ask them, 'Do I get paid for every time my name comes up?' I just started watching the last couple of episodes." She disclosed when talking about a comeback, "You know, I always say 'never say never.'"

Per Page Six, a source says she's been wanting to come back to the series, but she wanted more money than Bravo was willing to give.

They stated, "People think that she didn’t want to come back and that it’s because she got 'mean-girled' [by other cast members]. The truth is she did want to come back, but [Bravo] didn't want to pay her what she asked for. It was way out of her pay grade."
