Brandi Glanville, who is returning to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, reportedly warned newbie Denise Richards that the housewives would turn on her on the show.

Denise is reportedly at odds with Lisa Rinna in the upcoming season, which is a change as the ladies welcomed her during her first season.

“Brandi called Denise early in the season because Kyle [Richards] had told Brandi that Denise was going to be the one person that the other ladies picked on this season in Lisa Vanderpump‘s absence,” a production source told HollywoodLife. 

“Kyle said that everything that the audience liked about Denise last season is what the ladies would use against her this season,” the insider said, noting that Brandi was genuine when she reached out to Denise.

The problem is, nobody will watch the franchise without the expected drama, so somebody has been whipping up trouble - and that person appears to be Rinna.

“Brandi had been contacting several of the women because she wanted back on the show. Denise felt Brandi was just brought back to cause drama the entire last month of shooting and that she was set-up to get into heated fights with her and Camille Grammer,” the show source continued.
