I’m calling her out! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Denise Richards addresses his ex-partner Lisa Rinnabehavior in Season 12 of the Bravo series.

“Watched #RHOBH last night,” Wild things star, 51, wrote via Instagram on Thursday, October 20. “While I have empathy for Lisa Rinna who lost her mom, what is her excuse for all the other years on the show for being so cruel and vengeful?”

During the season, Rinna, 59, had outbursts and even attacked her fellow housewives — primarily Sutton Stracke – while mourning the death of her mother, Lois, who passed away in November 2021.

During the second episode of the three-part reunion special that aired on Wednesday, October 19, the Emmy-nominated talk show host admitted that “it might have been better” if she had “taken time off” to process her grief after watching a montage of her dramatic moments from the season.

“When you’re in such deep pain — I did the best I could. I’m sorry for being crazy and a maniac, screaming and doing what I did,” she said. “I’m really just trying to walk through life.”

“They booed me. I liked that. It’s awesome,” The Celebrity Apprentice alum exclusively said Us Weekly after the panel. “Well, I’ve never been booed before. I kind of thought it was the best thing ever. It’s like being a wrestler. I liked it.”

Richards, who has not been a part of the franchise since Season 10, was not invited to the event in New York and took to social media to address the apparent snub.

“Heard a few former housewives have been asked to be at #BravoCon @BravoTV @TheRealCamilleG,” the former model tweeted on Friday, Oct. 14, tagging a fellow RHOBH alum Camille Grammer. “I wonder why they didn’t ask us to be there? The fans didn’t want us?”

Several fans took to Twitter to show their support Blue Mountain State alum, teasing that – had she been present – they wouldn’t have booed her arrival. “Thank you very much,” she replied.

Richards joined RHOBH stars in Season 9 after appearing as a guest star in Season 5. The Love Accidentally actress left the series in 2020 after being an alum Brandi Glanvilleallegations that the two had an affair, which Richards has consistently denied.

I really liked to work A real girl next door told exclusively by the author Us in July. “I love the moments when we traveled and had dinner with each other. And in the show there is also great camaraderie with femininity. And that’s something that I think is really positive.”
