  • Denise Richards – Former Bond girl Denise Richards has been part of the cast of RHOBH for the last two seasons of the show, but season 10 saw a particularly tough storyline for Denise in which a shocking rumour caused the women to question her and she was left struggling to defend herself.

Who is not returning for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 11?

Denise Richards' rep has confirmed that the actress and former model will not be returning for season 11 of the show.

After appearing for the last two seasons, the star explained on daytime talk show The Real that after finding the last season 'challenging' to film, she was ready to move on to other projects:

"I had a great first season. The second season was challenging," Denise admitted.

“I just thought it was the right time for me to go and to just keep focusing on the other projects that I have. I had a great time. I will always be a fan and I will continue to support the show.”

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, who was pregnant with her third child during season 10 of the show, is also not returning for season 11.

Taking to Instagram, the accountability coach revealed: "I don’t want to bore you but I figured I got to give you a little update on what’s going on. I recently found out that my contract as a Housewife is not being renewed."

Who will be on the new season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills instead?

Lisa Rinna, Garcelle Beauvais, Dorit Kemsley, Erika Jayne and Kyle Richards are all expected to return for the next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
