Brandi Glanville is not holding back after it was announced that Denise Richards would be leaving The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after two seasons. “The word of the night is calculated #timing #Are you f--king kidding me,” the 47-year-old wrote via Twitter on Thursday, September 10.
Glanville — who claimed she had an affair with Richards throughout the season — also confirmed that she “shot Watch What Happens Live” on September 8, so she wouldn’t be able to speak about Richards’ departure from the reality show. “I wish I saw the end of this reunion,” she said.
On Wednesday, September 9, a rep for the 49-year-old actress confirmed to Variety that she would be exiting the Bravo franchise. The news dropped hours before part two of the season 10 reunion premiered.
Glanville wasn't the only housewife to take a dig at Richards via social media. Erika Girardi, 49, tweeted, "Bye" with a hand waving emoji, alongside a GIF from the '80s sitcom Small Wonder of a young boy slamming a door in a girl's face.
Season 10 has been filled with lots of drama, to say the least, and Richards and Glanville have been prominently featured — especially after the mom of two claimed she slept with Richards on her movie set in April 2019.
“I had been out with her and her husband Aaron and I knew that they have, like, an understanding, like she could be with girls if she wanted to,” Glanville said during a July episode of RHOBH. “The first night we met, something happened.”
According to Glanville, Richards insisted they should stay in the same room together. “There was no rollaway bed and so I just slept in the bed with Denise,” she said. “I was uncomfortable. The kids were downstairs and we were in the loft and there was no door. And I just couldn't get into it.”
However, the Starship Troopers star — who is married to Aaron Phyphers — maintained her innocence and denied that she was ever involved with Glanville. “I did not have an affair,” she told The Washington Post in July. “If I had an open marriage, I would be open about it.”
During the second hour of the reunion on September 9, Richards swore that she was never intimate with Glanville and that they were just on an “acquaintance” level.
“Every 10 text messages that were sent to me from Brandi, I would respond,” Richards said. “She would always contact me wanting to go to dinner and this and that, and I never did.”
However, host Andy Cohen asked the former model why she called Glanville “a good friend” during BravoCon in 2019. “Look, I feel like you’re trying to discredit this, and that’s not cool, because I’ve done a lot of stuff,” she said. “I’ve never socialized with this person in my entire life.”
Some of the ladies were skeptical about the Wild Things actress and even asked her if she had kept Glanville from coming to the reunion. “I owe her nothing. She’s not a friend of mine,” she insisted.
Ultimately, Richards claimed she knew who Glanville allegedly slept with from the cast but wouldn’t name names. “It wasn’t just one person,” she revealed. “There’s one in this group, and there’s a couple people outside of the group that you all know. I don’t give a rat’s ass who it is. It has nothing to do with me. I don’t care what people think.”
Glanville seemed to have the last laugh on social media since she acknowledged that she has “never had sex with anyone else on the cast but if I could pick, I’d choose Erika Jayne.”
