After Denise shared a message with her fans and followers on Tuesday, revealing she recently experienced a health crisis, Lisa began questioning her about whether or not she and her family were alright before pointing out that she was a no-show on Saturday when the rest of the cast filmed the finale episode for the upcoming season at Dorit Kemsley‘s home.
“My hubby posted this & I need to actually thank him for taking such great care of me,” Denise wrote in response to Aaron’s reveal. “This was a couple months ago & turned out to be a good lesson for me to always listen to my body.”
According to Denise, she was experiencing pain and other symptoms before learning she had two femoral hernias and two inguinal hernias. Looking back, she wishes she sought help sooner.
“I waited way too long & didn’t even tell my husband how bad I was feeling (I know it was stupid) … gotta always listen to our bodies & take care of ourselves,” she wrote.

My hubby posted this & I need to actually thank him for taking such great care of me. This was a couple months ago & turned out to be a good lesson for me to always listen to my body. Being a mom, wife, & having a career sometimes it’s easier to just be strong and power through, I thought the pain & my other symptoms would just go away. They did not and got a lot worse. I’m so grateful to @herniadoc & her fabulous team. I thought I had one femoral hernia, I actually had 2 femoral & 2 inguinal. And I waited way too long & didn’t even tell my husband how bad I was feeling (I know it was stupid) … gotta always listen to our bodies & take care of ourselves. #Repost @aaronwilliamcameron ・・・ To the most incredible woman my soulmate. I am always in awe of your Beauty perseverance, dedication in all you do. These photos taken a couple of months ago from an emergency procedure femoral hernia not one but four! 6 hours waiting close by. Love you baby everyday getting stronger! @deniserichards
After Denise shared this post, Lisa had some questions.
“Is everything ok? Is everyone ok?” Lisa asked.
She then posted a second message in which she pointed out that Denise was supposed to attend Saturday night’s event with their co-star, Garcelle Beauvais, who was added to the RHOBH cast in August along with fellow newbie Sutton Stracke.
“Denise are you ok?” Lisa continued. “You never showed up to Dorit’s Sat night we were all so worried about you. What happened?! You said you were coming, you were meeting Garcelle, We never heard from you. What happened?”
While a number of Denise’s fans and followers reacted to Lisa’s post, Denise has yet to explain her finale absence.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 10 will air on Bravo TV sometime next year.
