Erika Girardi Reveals The ‘Most Frustrating Part’ Of Denise Richards’ ‘RHOBH’ Drama And Shares Why She Wished Denise Stayed On The Show!

Erika Girardi is sounding off on all the drama that went down with Denise Richards on the latest season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

“I think the most frustrating part about all of this was that Denise could not even acknowledge what was said on camera,” Erika explained during the Thursday, September 17, episode of E!'s Daily Pop, according to Us Weekly. “So it’s kind of like irrefutable evidence. And then just, ‘I didn’t say that’ … but it’s on camera!”

Erika admits that she was not happy Brandi Glanville was not allowed to share her side of the story about her alleged affair with Richards at the season ten reunion. “Had it been any other Housewife in that situation, Brandi would’ve been seated right there to confront her,” she noted on Daily Pop. “But she wasn’t. … It puts us in a weird place — and you know this game better than me, Justin [Sylvester] — so when the Brandi thing comes to light, we as a cast have to talk about it. And we’re dragged into it.”

She added: “Now you’re taking Brandi, who’s an important piece of this story for months now, and you’re not letting her speak? And I just feel like had it been any other woman, Brandi would’ve been there.”

Erika then shared how Denise struggled to adapt to the format of the show because she’s an actress. “There’s no stop and start. There’s no script,” she said. “You’re talking off the top of your head. Everything is up for grabs. Everything will and can be used. And you have to be able to live in that space. And there’s no protection from production or the network or your friends or, you know, anyone. … Everybody looks bad. Everybody takes a hit. Everybody stumbles, and there’s no retakes, really.”

Girardi then explained why she would have loved to see Richards stay on the show. “You know, everybody internalizes this show differently,” Erika said. “I would've liked to see her stay, but she has to do what's right for her and her family.”
