Denise walked away from the series after her alleged hookup with Brandi Glanville became the central storyline in season 10. However, over the last few months, there’s been some chatter about whether she’d return to the show after Garcelle Beauvais hinted that the actress is hoping to make a comeback.
In a recent interview, Denise decided to speak for herself regarding the idea of her return, revealing she did truly enjoy her time on the Bravo show despite her drama with Brandi and Lisa Rinna.
“You know, I really did enjoy working on the show,” she told Entertainment Tonight on August 26. “I hate to even say working on it. I liked being a part of the show, and I had fun with most of the women, not all!”
As fans well know, the soap star’s name has been mentioned a few times so far this season, so she’s wondering if she should be expecting a paycheck.
“I am going to ask them, ‘Do I get paid for every time my name comes up?'” she joked before sharing that she recently began “watching the last couple of episodes.”
So, would Denise return to RHOBH despite the dark cloud hanging over the series due to Erika Jayne‘s “real-life” legal drama?
“You know, I always say ‘never say never,'” she revealed. “It feels like they have real-life stuff, you know? Real-life stuff going on this season.”
She added, “I think that they couldn’t not talk about some of the things that’s going on. I mean, it’s very public, and I know that’s a very difficult situation, I would imagine too.”
“I think [Denise] wants to come back! Somebody’s got to go, though!” Garcelle said, referring to Lisa Rinna.
However, Denise later denied giving any ultimatums via Twitter following the June 30 WWHL episode.
As for whether the network would even consider having Denise return, an insider told OK! Magazine last month that it would be “hard to imagine the producers would welcome her back.”
The insider also claimed that Denise regrets walking away from the series due to the massive paycheck she reportedly received.
“[She] realizes that was a mistake, because it was a lot of easy money,” the source alleged.
