If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen! And Denise Richards is getting the heck out of the kitchen! Denise no longer wants to be on the show and will not be returning for a third season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Denise Richards Quitting Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Superstar actress Denise Richards has had a hard time on the reality show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and after only 2 seasons she is calling it quits. Her representative confirmed to Variety on Wednesday that she will not be returning to the show. E! was told that filming for the show "was emotionally stressful and took a toll on her mental health."

This comes after her relationship with nearly every "Housewife" was strained as can be seen in the reunion episodes. Former Housewife Brandi Glanville has claimed on camera that she and Denise Richards had an affair to which Denise vehemently denies. On top of that, the cast members feel she attempted to make the group look bad and control the narratives of the season going so far as to send cast members Cease & Desist orders secretly. 

Denise has now been claiming that she was not even friends with firecracker Brandi despite the endless texts Brandi showed to their castmates. We may never know the truth behind the alleged affair or not but it is fair to say the girls no longer trust her. 

Denise has been struggling to gain back favor with the ladies after burning one too many bridges and it may be too late. Now she will not be returning to the new seasons and we will have to wait for parts 2 and 3 of the virtual RHOBH reunion to see if any issues were resolved between Denise and the ladies.
