• Denise Richards finds it "distasteful" that her former "RHOBH" co-stars keeping bringing up her name, a report says
  • She reportedly believes Garcelle and Lisa spoke about her during the reunion just to have "something drama-filled to talk about"
  • Richards is not "even thinking" about returning to the Bravo show, according to the report

Denise Richards is not pleased that her former "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" co-stars keep name-dropping her, a year after she left the show.

The 50-year-old Bravo alum, who left "RHOBH" before Season 11 premiered in May, finds it "distasteful" that her name keeps getting brought up on the show, a source told Us Weekly.

"Denise isn’t thrilled about her name being brought up during the reunion or even this season," the insider said. "She believes producers provoked the conversation between Garcelle [Beauvais] and [Lisa] Rinna just to give them something drama-filled to talk about."

According to the source, Richards once even joked, "Do I get paid for every time my name comes up?"

"She meant it. She thinks she should get paid if she's going to be mentioned," the insider claimed.

The "Wild Things" star, who was a full-time cast member during Seasons 9 and 10, has already moved on from her tenure at the Bravo reality show. But according to the insider, she finds it "distasteful" that she's still being discussed "just to prolong the storyline."

The first part of the "RHOBH" Season 11 reunion aired Wednesday, and it featured Rinna, 58, accusing Beauvais, 54, of constantly bringing up and defending Richards amid the drama last season. The "Real" co-host then claimed she was done speaking about Richards and Rinna's issues and was ready to leave the drama in the past.

Beauvais, the first Black star of "RHOBH," later accused Rinna of making racially charged comments about her, which the former "Days of Our Lives" star denied. But Beauvais said she no longer trusts Rinna.

Richards joined "RHOBH" in Season 9 and was front and center in Season 10 due to the drama between her and Brandi Glanville. The latter accused the actress of cheating on her husband, Aaron Phypers, with her, but Richards has since denied the claim.

Following her departure from "RHOBH," Richards said on "The Real" in September 2020 that her second season on the reality show was "challenging" but noted at the time that she hasn't ruled out a series return down the line.

However, Us Weekly learned from sources that Richards is not "even thinking" about going back right now and only wants to focus on her other projects that are "in the works."

"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" airs on Bravo Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EDT.
