Denise Richards has quit the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills after allegations of an affair with Brandi Glanville shook her marriage.

The 49-year-old actress joined the reality show in 2018 and has appeared for two seasons, but the time has come for her to leave the series with her representative confirming her departure to Variety.

The news follows the dramatic conclusion of season 10, which centred on the alleged affair between Denise and her former co-star Brandi Glanville, 47.

Brandi may have left the show in 2015 but it was her claims about ‘hooking up’ with Denise, which she made in April last year, which have been a dominant story this season.

Denise has been married to husband Aaron Phypers, 47, since 2018 and has repeatedly denied the allegations.

Her time on the reality series has seen Denise hit with several accusations about the status of her marriage and in February, she took to Instagram to hit back at those who doubted her.

She insisted that she is “100% monogamous to [her] husband” after there were claims that the couple had an “open marriage” arrangement.

The drama around her love-life had meant that RHOBH was a ratings-topper by the end of the finale but Denise had hinted that she was prepared to walk away from the show.

In July, Denise told Washington Post that she would only sign up for season 11 “if it felt right”.

The Wild Things actress had also been at the centre of “mom-shaming” claims by the other Housewives, earlier in the season.

Denise had said that she didn’t feel comfortable having her daughters with the group due to the nature of the conversations that they have.

She cited that they had brought up the subject of threesomes in front of her children, when she hosted a party at her Malibu home.

Denise was labelled a hypocrite by the other Housewives because she had openly spoken about sex in previous episodes.

They pointed to her saying, during season nine, that she had given her husband a massage which culminated in a ‘happy ending’.

Brandi also alleged that Denise had been gossiping about the other Housewives, with Teddi Mellencamp Arroyaye coming in for particular attention.

She accused Denise of saying that Teddi was “pathetic” and that she called Erika Girardi a “cold-hearted bitch.”
