The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills dads are at war.
Over the weekend, after Denise Richards‘ dad, Irv Richards, addressed the recent allegations she’s been facing on the show, Brandi Glanville‘s father, Guy Glanville, defended her against claims of lies as an insider revealed why their co-stars are doing their best not to get involved in the ongoing drama surrounding their alleged affair.
“My daughter may be many things, sometimes an a**hole, but she’s not a liar,” Guy stated in the July 25 clip, which was shared to Brandi’s account.
In the caption of Guy’s video, Brandi wrote, “I’m such an [a**ole] I love my dad for blindly making this video!! I said [Teddi Mellencamp] dad had her back & that [Denise Richards]’s popped in so this is my dads (I mean Santa’s take).”
As RHOBH fans may have seen, Irv took to his Instagram page last week to applaud Denise, who was accused of having an affair with Brandi and talking trash about their castmates during last week’s show, for staying strong and honest amid the drama she’s facing with Brandi and their co-stars.
“We were tough on our daughters growing up so they would become strong, honest, independent women. After watching a few RHOBH episodes I think we did a damn good job. Stay strong, push forward, don’t live in fear. Life is short,” he wrote in his post, which Denise re-shared on her own account.
Teddi’s dad, John Mellencamp, also got in on the RHOBH drama by texting Teddi about the comment Denise allegedly made in regard to her living in his shadow and shaded Denise by calling her “Dennis Richards.”
In other news, a source recently revealed that when it comes to Brandi and Denise’s rumored hookups, the cast of the Bravo reality series is allegedly trying to “stay out” of their drama.
“They’re all just trying to keep their mouths quiet, especially after Brandi was served the cease and desist so they see she means business and they don’t want to deal with that,” an insider revealed to Hollywood Life last week. “They just want [Denise] to be truthful and feel like she’s not about a variety of things, but they really don’t care if she did or didn’t have the affair. Most of them seem to believe Brandi.”
As for where the women stand with Denise today, the source went on to say that Denise is estranged from nearly everyone, aside from castmate Garcelle Beauvais.
“Outside of the reunion, they haven’t really spoken to her except for Garcelle,” the insider added. “They have a group text that they’ll chat on about certain things and Denise will reply when she needs to, but that’s it.”
