Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Denise Richards became the housewife most likely to break the fourth wall this season with the “Bravo, Bravo, F–king Bravo!” heard ’round the world in the season 10 promo.
That clip went viral before it aired and RHOBH fans patiently awaited its arrival on their screens, but they were sadly disappointed when Denise and Kyle Richards finally faced off and the footage from the clip never showed up.
Fans were given a snippet of it later in the season in a montage of Denise’s multiple departures from filming, but now, Bravo finally aired it in full as part of their “Secrets Revealed” episode on Wednesday.
During her confessional, Kyle claimed that Denise told them she had been working that day and that’s why she herself was late to the retreat, but she later told them off-camera that she hadn’t been working at all.
Denise apparently learned the “Bravo, Bravo, Bravo” trick from Kyle. Kyle explained it was a tactic housewives used in earlier seasons to signal to production to not use the footage.
The tension on set seemed to have gotten to Denise as she announced her exit from the franchise on September 9.
“It was actually a really tough decision,” Denise admitted during an appearance on The Real this week. “I’ve been a fan of the show and I had a lot of fun doing my first season. Obviously my second season was very challenging and I went back and forth with it, and at the end of the day I decided it was time for me to move on and focus on other projects that I have. But I am glad that I did it, though.”
