If you are a fan of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, you might have wondered if Denise Richards and Kyle Richards are related. After all, they share the same last name and have been involved in some heated arguments on the show. However, the answer is no, they are not related by blood or marriage. They do have a long history with each other, though, and it is not always a friendly one. Here is what you need to know about their relationship and how it changed over the seasons.
How Denise and Kyle Met
Denise Richards joined the cast of RHOBH in season 9, but she was not a stranger to Kyle Richards. According to Kyle, they met 11 years ago through a “Hollywood moms” group that also included Lisa Rinna, Ali Landry, and Alison Sweeney. They would get together occasionally and share their favorite desserts. Kyle said that she got to know Denise through this group and that they had a lot in common.
However, Kim Richards, Kyle’s sister and former RHOBH star, did not know Denise very well. She said that she had only seen her a few times and that she felt like Denise was a replacement for her on the show. She also said that she did not think Denise was a good fit for the show and that she wished her luck.
How Denise and Kyle Clashed
Denise Richards seemed to get along well with most of the ladies in her first season, but things changed in season 10. Denise became the center of controversy when she was accused of having an affair with Brandi Glanville, a former RHOBH star and friend of Kyle. Denise denied the allegations and tried to avoid talking about them on camera, but the other women kept bringing them up and questioning her honesty.
Kyle Richards was one of the women who doubted Denise and confronted her about the rumors. She also called Denise a “ragamuffin” behind her back, which Denise found out later when she watched the episode. Denise responded by posting a series of magazine covers that she had appeared on, with the caption “Going down memory lane with this ragamuffin”.
The tension between Denise and Kyle reached a boiling point at the season 10 reunion, where they exchanged insults and accusations. Kyle accused Denise of lying and being a “fake” person, while Denise accused Kyle of being a “mean girl” and a “bully”. They also argued about who was closer to Brandi and who had more influence on the show.
Are Denise and Kyle Still Feuding?
Denise Richards decided to leave RHOBH after season 10, citing personal reasons and a busy schedule. She also said that she felt like she was constantly on the defensive and that she did not enjoy the drama anymore. She said that she was grateful for the opportunity and that she had made some good friends on the show, but she did not mention Kyle as one of them.
Kyle Richards, on the other hand, said that she was sad to see Denise go and that she wished things had ended differently. She said that she had no hard feelings towards Denise and that she hoped they could be friends again someday. She also said that she did not think Denise was a bad person and that she understood why she wanted to protect her family.
So, are Denise and Kyle still feuding? It seems like they are not in contact with each other, but they are also not holding any grudges. They might not be related, but they have a history that is hard to forget. Maybe one day, they will be able to bury the hatchet and share a dessert again. Until then, we can only watch and wonder.
