Why Did Denise Richards Say "Bravo Bravo Bravo" on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?

One of the most dramatic parts of Denise Richards’ freakout this week was when she tried to force Bravo to stop filming.

It didn’t work.

But setting aside for one brief moment her alleged affair with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star Brandi Glanville …

What did she mean by “Bravo Bravo Bravo?”

First, the briefest of recaps before Kyle Richards’ explains it all from the perspective of an original cast member.

At dinner, Teddi Mellencamp felt that she had to get everything she had heard from Brandi Glanville off of her chest.

Having been told that Denise thought very little of her and downright hated her, Teddi wanted to clear the air.

Denise, of course, denied everything.

Interestingly, her denial became suddenly more passionate and her facial features became even more aghast when she heard that Brandi had said this.

There are a number of things that Denise could have said to convince Teddi that it was all a lie, a rumor or some kind of misunderstanding.

She did not say any of those things.

Naturally, this was when Teddi brought up the rest of what Brandi had told them.

Explaining that she was unwilling to “torture” Denise by keeping her in the dark, she told Denise about the story of their alleged affair.

Denise at this point became visibly distressed, at first trying to laugh it off before beginning to spiral and cry.

“I’m going through so much stuff, it has nothing to do with any of us,” Denise insisted.

She added: “It has nothing to do with the show.”

“And Bravo, Bravo, Bravo … Please do not air this. Please,” Denise begged … to no avail.

Now that we have that recap out of the way … obviously, this fourth-wall-breaking moment came up later on the after-show.

“You know how that started?” Kyle asked, excited to share. 

She narrates: “Season 1, Lisa Vanderpump, Taylor, all of us, we’d use that term to quickly, like, [put on] a little powder.” 

The OG explained that, when the series began, the ladies “didn’t want to be seen touching up” their makeup.

To that end, Kyle says, they would tell producers, “Hold on! Bravo, Bravo, Bravo. Hi, Andy Cohen!”

You can see Kyle’s explanation in its entirety in the video that we have included in this post.

The other ladies chime in about this, with Erika Jayne and Dorit Kemsley both emphasizing that this is not the way that “Bravo” is used, ever.

“I’ve never seen anyone do it to cut something out or not have something used or to put an end to a conversation,” Dorit reflects. “No, never.”

Denise, it seems, felt entitled to special privileges despite the realities of being a Real Housewife.

As Garcelle Beauvais pointed out, Denise was not obligated to tell anyone anything about her sex life, on or off camera.

That said, inquiring minds want to know! (Garcelle is the best.)

Anyway, the discussion itself was fair game because they are public figures and because they are paid to, well, do this.

Having uncomfortable conversations and appearing at your most raw and vulnerable is kind of in the job description here, and everyone else has done it – which is why the show is so good.

The other Housewives were understandably upset that Denise seemingly was not only unwilling to engage, but abruptly tried to sabotage the scene with her “Bravo Bravo Bravo” chant.

Denise Richards Finally Confronted With Brandi Glanville’s Hookup Allegations In New RHOBH Ep: ‘Please Do Not Air This!’

The moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived! The ladies of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills traveled to Rome, Italy for their annual girls’ getaway on Wednesday night’s brand new episode, and everything came out about Brandi Glanville‘s infamous accusations that she hooked up with a married Denise Richards. Hey, talk […]

Denise Richards Cries, Denies Everything, Begs Bravo to Stop Filming

On last week’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Brandi Glanville told everyone about banging Denise Richards.

In this clip, we can see her tearful denials to her castmates … followed by acting out in an attempt to make the footage unusable.

In this sneak peek clip of Wednesday night’s new episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Denise Richards is in tears.

“Are you f–king kidding me?” a visibly crying Denise exclaims to her castmates. They are all at dinner at a restaurant.

Then, in a slightly different indignant tone, she repeats: “Are you f–king kidding me?

The subject matter is not difficult to guess — they are discussing Brandi Glanville’s claims that the two slept together.

“She’s just out to get you for no reason?” Teddi asks incredulously.

From her tone and her words, it is very clear that Teddi is finding Denise’s tearful denials hard to believe.

Garcelle Beauvais chimes in: “And why would she be out to get you?”

The tone of her question may be doubtful, but she is giving Denise an opening to theorize about Brandi’s motives.

“I have no idea!” Denise protests. So much for that opportunity, we guess.

“If Brandi and Denise did sleep together,” Garcelle says to the confessional camera, “she doesn’t have to tell these ladies.”

“That’s her business,” she affirms. She is absolutely right.

In a humorous tone, Garcelle then admits: “I want to get to the bottom of it, though.” (I just love Garcelle)

Guys, I’m going through so much stuff,” Denise then laments.

She insists that “it has nothing do with any of us.”

Denise adds: “It has nothing to do with this show.”

At this point, Denise appears to be attempting to make it impossible for the footage to be used on the show.

“And Bravo, Bravo, Bravo,” Denise chants, as if it were an incantation to disable the cameras.

Obviously, we are seeing the footage. All that Denise’s antics caused was for her own silliness to air to viewers.

Erika Jayne is visibly annoyed by Denise’s attempts at sabotage. They all signed up to do the show. Denise is being disrespectful to all of them.

But it is Dorit Kemsley who speaks up, because Denise acting up like this makes trouble for everyone.

“Honey, you have to stop saying that,” Dorit urges Denise, who is clearly getting on everyone’s last nerve with her attempt to opt out of the show.

Denise’s behavior is clearly an embarrassment to multiple ladies.

They are trying to have a frank, adult discussion. They are also trying to do their jobs — which means talking about their lives and drama.

Denise is trying to opt out. You can clearly see at the end of the clip how unhappy her companions are with her.

Fans are still divided over whether Brandi or Denise is telling the truth. Castmates, however, seem to be siding with Brandi.

As many fans have pointed out, Denise’s denials seem so flagrantly over-the-top, much more so than they would expect from a famous person hearing a fake story.

Seeing Denise try (and fail) to force producers to start filming is not going to help her case in the ways that she seems to imagine.

Brandi Glanville: Denise Richards and I Hooked Up! We Did EVERYTHING

The day we have long anticipated, when Brandi Glanville spilled all about Denise Richards on RHOBH, finally arrived this week.

Brandi has a lot to say about their alleged affair. She also revealed what Denise had been saying behind everyone’s backs.

Before the revelations started coming, we got to see Brandi tell Denise and Aaron that she wanted to be a “throuple” with them.

While that was more than a little ballsy, she was really just praising their marriage and relationship … while also setting the stage for future talk.

In the mean time, Denise had to learn what a throuple is from a producer, which is deeply funny. It’s just a “couple” except that it’s three people.

Fast forwarding through the awkward stage fall, Brandi didn’t start things off by announcing that she and Denise had boned to tribbed or whatever.

They sat down at Kyle’s mansion (something about that house always looks like a video game level to me), where Denise got serious.

She warned Kyle, Kim, and Teddi that Denise Richards is “not who she pretends to be.”

Kim makes it clear right away that she knows what Brandi is talking about, but promises that she’s not going to tell Brandi’s story, so she keeps it vague.

“I don’t wanna go, like, totally into it,” Brandi says apologetically, “but what you see is not what you get.”

This isn’t chat about the affair — not yet. This is talk about Denise being two-faced.

Turning to Teddi, Brandi warns “she doesn’t like you, at all.”

Brandi emphasizes: “At all. She has said horrible things about you.”

Even Kyle is visibly stunned at this. Kyle and Teddi are, of course, famously close.

“You’re obnoxious,” Brandi says, referring to what Denise has allegedly said about Teddi.

“You’ll do anything to be in this group,” she continues, “because you’ve lived under your dad’s shadow your whole life.”

Not wanting to continue insulting Teddi, even in another woman’s words, Brandi says: “It was just like … just mean.”

Teddi is furious, not simply because Denise dislikes and has been badmouthing her, but because it cuts deeper than that.

“I gave her the opportunity to come clean on however she’s feeling,” Teddi tells the confessional camera.

We then see a flashback in which Denise very shadily drinks while speaking to Teddi.

Just five days earlier, Teddi had asked Denise to tell her if something about her is bothering her.

“I already told you,” Denise replied at the time, taking an extended sip from her drink.

“Say it to my face,” Teddi says to the confessional camera. “Because I know, the way I’ve been feeling, I’ve said to your face.”

Obviously, Kyle is bothered by the badmouthing.

Part of that is simply that, well, no one likes being spoken of behind their backs.

The other part of that is that Kyle has a very relatable desire to be beloved by everyone, so she hates to hear that she is failing at that.

Brandi says that Denise hasn’t limited her gripes to one or two Housewives.

“Apparently, she doesn’t like anyone,” Brandi reports.

“She doesn’t like Rinna either,” she claims. “She’s like, Erika’s a cold-hearted bitch.”

At the same time, Brandi says, Denise complains that the Housewives are not as warm to her as they could be.

Why, the Housewives naturally wonder, would Denise feel so carefree to vent her frustrations to Brandi like this?

“She feels like she can tell me things,” Brandi explains, “because she has something on me.”

Kim once again drops a hint that she knows where this conversation is going.

Brandi has everyone’s attention but is visibly nervous, asking for water.

Kyle freaks out about having been so enthralled that she hasn’t offered them anything to drink, so she orders some water and wine to be brought up.

We then see Kyle speak on this to the confessional camera, in a moment very clearly recorded by herself after the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown.

“I’ve never seen Brandi so nervous,” Kyle reflects.

“Normally if she’s upset,” she characterizes, “it just comes spilling out of her mouth.”

“I’m saying … what she did to you, is wrong,” Kim tells Brandi.

Obviously, this has the other Housewives even more intrigued.

It’s no surprise that Brandi has already told Kim, but it also helps to build up “hype” in the room for what Brandi is about to reveal.

When they first met, Brandi recalls, she and Denise “hit it off right away.”

But she shares that “some s–t went down … that was really f–ked up” between April 2019 and mid-November at Kyle’s party.

“The whole cheating thing with me, it’s so personal and I was so broken for so long,” Brandi recalls of her ex-husband’s infamous affair.

Speaking to the confessional camera, Brandi emphasizes that she would “never ever, ever do that to someone else.”

At least, not knowingly, as she tells the Housewives that Denise allegedly “kind of put me in a situation where I was the cheater.”

“I had been out with her and Aaron,” Brandi begins.

“And,” Brandi says, “I knew that they have an understanding, she could be with girls if she wanted to, as long as it wasn’t with a guy.”

“The first night we met,” she reveals, “something happened.”

That first night, the two had gone out to dinner and “completely clicked, got absolutely wasted.”

Brandi says that they had started “making out” in the bathroom. Honeslty, plenty of people haved “clicked” that quickly. But that wasn’t the end of it.

“In April, she invited me to go to her set in Northern California to do my podcast,” she shares.

“That first night, the girls were sleeping in a room downstairs with a door and Denise had a room upstairs,” Brandi describes.

“There was no rollaway bed, conveniently,” Brandi details. “So I just slept in the bed with Denise.”

“We just had a good night, we were hanging out,” she says.

“And then the next night,” Brandi recalls, “we got really drunk, we were so f–ked up and we kind of hooked up.”

“We hooked up. Denise and I,” Brandi claims to the group.

“Like, kiss?” sweet, innocent Teddi asks. In her defense, making out is still a hookup. But, in this case, Brandi specifies that it was more than that.

Brandi answers: “Like everything.”

“I don’t want you guys to judge me,” Brandi states, followed by assurances that they are doing nothing of the sort.

“I’m bisexual,” Brandi affirms, “everyone knows that, my kids know that. It doesn’t matter.”

“I was uncomfortable, the kids were downstairs and we were in the loft and there was no door,” Brandi describes.

“I couldn’t get into it,” Brandi admits, “and the next day she just said to me, ‘No matter what you do, you cant tell Aaron, he will kill me.'”

‘What the f–k is happening right now?” Brandi recalls thinking. “In the moment, I was just like, ‘I’m everything that I have always hated.'”

“My books are both about hating cheaters, not being cheaters, being loyal,” she describes. “I will never be the other woman.”

“I would have never slept with Denise if I thought that Aaron was not okay with it,” Brandi states.

“He knew I was going out of town with her,” she adds. “He knew we had made out before.”

Brandi says that at the time “There was no question in my mind that Aaron was okay with all of this.”

Brandi says that after this, Denise’s behavior towards her changed, becoming cold … except for text messages to make sure that “everything was kosher.”

Brandi says that Denise made her feel like she was something of a villain.

It took her a while, she says, before she “had a breakdown” and spilled all of this to Kim.

“She’ll say to me, I just want you to know my private life is super private, I would never tell your secrets,” Brandi described.

“That’s what she said to me after your party,” she alleged. “That just, to me, was like a threat.”

Kyle said in the confessional: “[Brandi] can be mean, she can be a bitch but I honestly don’t believe she’s a liar.”

Brandi was clearly bombarded by Denise stans who believe that she has made up all of this to take a shot at being back on the show.

She says that there is more to come, insisting that she is not lying.

We are curious to see what else there is to come — because we know that this will all come up while the Housewives are in Rome.

In the mean time, Kim shared that this was filmed shortly after her surgery, while she had limited mobility.

As such, someone else did her makeup and her hair.

Kim has come a long way and it was heartwarming to see her with the group, particularly when she affirmed her desire for water, not wine.

Brandi Glanville: I Want to Be a Throuple With Denise Richards and Aaron Phypers!

Don’t get us wrong, we absolutely loved Camille Grammer’s feud-filled guest role on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this week.

But the previews for next week are absolutely sizzling as Brandi finally gets the ball rolling on Denise’s big drama.

This iswhen the long-teased moment of Brandi Glanville playfully spanking Denise Richards’ butt in front of Aaron comes up.

This is just the beginning as, seemingly in the same scene, Brandi speaks to the two of them about their marriage.

At first it sounds like she’s insulting them … but Brandi quickly makes it clear that she is absolutely not.

“As much as you guys are co-dependent-ish,” Brandi begins, with what would usually be a criticism of their marriage.

She confesses: “And I like it.”

Because of the nature of editing and previews, it is not clear what the context of her statements are.

All that we do know is what Brandi says next: “I want to be a throuple with you guys.”

Throuples, of course, are a term for polyamorous relationships that involve three people.

A couple is made up of two people, so a throuple is a fun portmanteau for a three-person “couple.” Anything more than that is a polycule.

Meanwhile, the preview flashes to Lisa sitting down with her daughter, Amelia.

Amelia has a loftly list of housing goals that include a few extras and then some wild luxuries.

Lisa’s reaction says it all.

Lise then jokes in the confessional that she has turned her daughters into monsters.

Real talk? Living a luxurious life is fine so long as you are conscious that there are those who do not, and that they deserve good lives too.

There are parents who turn their kids into monsters. A kid who dreams of fancy accommodations is not a monster, and Lisa knows that.

Speaking of Lisa Rinna, she then dons the worst hair that she has ever had (we don’t know the context) to make an announcement.

(By the way, the background here looks like it’s from the set of mid-budget science fiction from 1996)

This year, she is the one planning the big group trip.

Lisa teases her castmates that she wants to “take all of us on a trip.”

Real talk, we know that this is part of the job. Regular neighbors don’t go on group vacations every year.

This will be a week-long getaway, Lisa teases.

The ladies are showing a range of emotions as Lisa prepares to make the announcement.

Maybe they know what’s coming, maybe they don’t.

The only thing that we can say for sure here is that Erika Jayne is absolutely towering over Kyle.

This week-long getaway will be in Rome, Italy.

(Obviously, this was filmed last year, very much before the COVID-19 pandemic ravaged Italy and then the US)

In real life, we know that most of these ladies could jet off to Rome any time that they wanted.

But on the show, they expressed varying levels of glee.

Dorit Kemsley is SERVING excitement in this moment.

That’s why they’re paid the big, big bucks, folks.

It looks like Denise, who has been complaining for several episodes about how people keep talking about her issue, is still talking about it.

She complains to Erika — it is not clear of the exact subject, aside from being told to “be honest.”

Erika wants to explain to her that one of the problems is Denise’s husband.

“When Aaron gets involved, it becomes something else,” Erika warns her.

She is referring to the condescending manner in which Aaron has spoken to the Housewives — something wildly unacceptable.

Denise, however, sounds dismissive in this preview, and wants to get back to her point.

“You guys need to be careful with her,” Brandi is shown telling a group of Housewives that includes Teddi and Kyle.

She explains that they need to be cautious “because she’s not who she pretends to be.”

Next week cannot get here quickly enough!

Brandi Glanville Wants To Be In A ‘Throuple’ With Denise Richards & Her Husband As RHOBH Seriously Heats Up!

Things are seriously starting to heat up on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!!! On Wednesday night’s episode of the show, Brandi Glanville made her season 10 debut, showing out at Kyle Richards‘ Black and White Gala. The 47-year-old always-controversial reality TV star admitted she was “a little nervous” at the high-end shindig, […]

Camille Grammer: The Real Housewives Are All Nasty Witches Who Hate Me!

Denise Richards’ drama and Aaron Phypers’ rudeness took a back seat on this week’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Camille Grammer was back. She had issues with everyone — and they all had issues with her.

This episode saw multiple former Housewives return … with very mixed experiences.

Camille Grammer met up with Kyle Richards, who was eager to quash their beef.

As we have reported, Camille has used every opportunity to trash-talk her former castmates — and Kyle in particular — on social media.

Camille made a spectacular exit on last season’s reunion.

For this sit-down, she did apologize to Kyle for what she had said to her face.

As for the statements and comments that she had made to the confessional camera, however, Camille showed no apparent remorse.

Kyle wanted to be conciliatory, so she invited Camille to her Black and White Party.

See, Kyle had this dream of being the one to broker peace between Camille and some of the others.

But that wasn’t the only olive branch being extended by a Real Housewife with the last name of Richards.

Denise richards i am f king denise richards kyle

Denise Richards wanted to have a talk with Lisa Rinna — with whom she has been friends for many years.

She was concerned that Lisa wasn’t really backing her up during her feuds with castmates.

Once again, this is about the ladies feeling mom-shamed by Denise for chatting about threesomes around Denise’s kids, and Denise being accused of hypocrisy.

Erika jayne thought she was at wild things house

Specifically, Denise was bothered by the fact that Lisa had been the one to call her “hypocrite,” which Denise views as hurtful and even a betrayal.

The two of them had a bit of a one-on-one, but Lisa said that Denise’s “hostile and angry” response was out of proportion.

Denise is frustrated that this is still up for discussion, and she wishes everyone would “f–king drop it” before her kids hear about it.

Lisa admitted to the confessional camera that she thinks that she knows what Denise’s game is.

She thinks that Denise is trying to rehabilitate her image after sharing some NSFW comments, particularly in her first season.

Denise, on the other hand, worries that she cannot “trust her like I used to” because Lisa does not 100% have her back.

The party was not limited to current stars, and Camille was not the only erstwhile Housewife to show up.

Eileen Davidson (whom we love and miss), Adrienne Maloof, Kim Richards, and Brandi Glanville were also there.

Brandi and Denise chatted about their boob jobs and shared a hug. Soon, we’re sure, they’re going to delve into their alleged affair.

Dorit Kemsley chose to simply ignore that Camille exists, but Lisa decided to say hello … after a fashion.

“Hello Camille, Camille, you’re an asshole on Twitter, I’m gonna say that to you, but it’s nice to see you,” Lisa said as a greeting.

“I don’t need beef with you but you’re an a–hole on Twitter,” she added. “I didn’t like that.”

“It felt like that, you girls were really nasty to me,” Camille fired back.

“I was kind of dishing out what I got,” she claimed. “I didn’t like a lot of the stuff you did last year.”

She snapped her finger, did a tongue pop, and said “Mmmhmm,” leaving us wondering what year it is.

Lisa said that she didn’t want to rehash their beef and said “So we’re good.”

“We’re not!” Camille retorted. “You just called me an a–hole.”

Lisa, having bigger fish to fry, just said “we’re done” and sauntered off.

Garcelle Beauvais presented her new boyfriend, Michael, at the party.

Adrienne and her ex-husband, Paul Nassif, seemed to be reasonably chummy.

Kyle, in the meantime, raised over $300,000 for charity with the acution. $25,000 of that came from Kris Jenner, who simply donated without bidding.

Denise, who is of course so tired of people bringing up that she’s a hypocrite, struck up a conversation with Teddi about how she doesn’t love being called a hypocrite.

Kyle, like Eris rolling the golden apple at the wedding, aimed Camille in their direction and let loose.

Camille’s attempt to make small talk faltered at Teddi’s insistence.

“You don’t have to go through the pleasantries with me,” Teddi assured Camille. “I know you don’t like me.”

“I don’t trust what you have to say,” she added.

Next week, we’re going to get to see Brandi’s return to the show pay off as we finally get the ball rolling on her alleged affair with Denise.

Camille grammer the real housewives are all nasty witches who ha

Erika Jayne DRAGS Aaron Phypers for Being a Mansplaining Jerk!

Viewers and Housewives alike are still reacting to Denise Richards’ bizarre husband Aaron Phypers as he continues to be part of the show’s drama.

This week, Erika Jayne took him to task for his “mansplaining” and how rudely and condescendingly he spoke to the Housewives.

We know that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been on hiatus for a month, but this week’s episode picked up like no time had passed.

Because last time, we saw Denise storm out of Kyle’s party after being accused of hypocrisy.

The cast was still feeling annoyed and frankly judged for the way that Denise had gotten on their cases for discussing threesomes at her home.

As Erika has pointed out, Denise’s talk of getting her husband a happy ending and her career had led them to believe that things were chill.

Only Dorit Kemsley and Garcelle Beauvais really seem to understand Denise’s issue — that it’s a boundary only when it comes to her children.

But Denise was storming out of the party last time, so this week, that was where the episode picked up.

Denise was still feeling hurt by Lisa’s perceived betrayal, so she told her that she wanted to chat “privately” about that later.

In the mean time, Aaron wanted a big steak, his apparent coping mechanism, and Denise promised that they would go to a strip club.

Denise is certainly an interesting person. We hope that her accompanying Aaron to said clubs does not prevent him from tipping properly.

The ladies reflected on how Aaron should not have injected himself into their drama the way that he did.

Kyle Richards’ stated that Aaron must have gotten a full recap from Denise about the “hypocrisy” accusation, and come rearing for a fight.

“He can f–k off,” she stated. It’s hard to disagree with that.

Kyle admitted that she continued to feel “mom-shamed” by the scope of Denise’s displeasure at the threesome talk.

As we mentioned, Dorit didn’t agree, because Denise wasn’t commenting on their parenting.

Garcelle may be the only person (other than Aaron) who is fully, 100% in Denise’s corner on this subject.

Lisa had to travel and Garcelle was moving, but the rest of the gang showed up for Sutton Stracke’s trunk party, hosted at her store.

So we have Kyle, Teddi, Erika, and Dorit … all of whom were anxious about seeing not only Denise but also Aaron again.

Things were as awkward as they feared, especially when Denise’s bathroom run left Aaron alone with her castmates.

Kyle wanted to wait for Denise to return before they tried to settle anything. Erika didn’t have time for that.

“Aaron, you let us have it,” she said, confronting him.

Erika added: “you told us we were bad people and that we should look in the mirror and are we happy with ourselves.”

Aaron claimed that he was simply “making observations” at Kyle’s, but Erika didn’t stand for that non-excuse for a moment.

She reminded him that he had “talked down” to them.

“You don’t think you were mansplaining to us at her house?” Erika demanded. “You don’t think you were heated?”

“I’m done with this conversation,” Aaron declared when Denise returned from her bathroom run.

“You wanna focus on negative, go ahead,” he suggested. “You keep poking the bear.”

Notably, that last line is usually used as a threat. Aaron’s a weird guy.

Taddi asked Denise how she had a right to judge them — after all, she had called Teddi “a shit f–king stirrer” in front of Dorit’s daughter.

“I didn’t know Phoenix was there,” Denise insisted.

“This is the dumbest thing ever,” she declared. “Find something else to fight about.”

Denise stormed away, and Dorit approached her to try to explain to her why the “toxic” topic kept coming up.

“It won’t be dropped if you continue to leave,” Dorit cautioned.

“I understand your intention,” she assured, “I understand my husband is so protective of me and it’s not helpful.”

Meanwhile, Kyle stated the obvious — that Aaron is likely no longer “a fan” of Erika’s.

“I don’t give a flying f–k,” Erika declared. “Come see about me!”

Anyone can stand to lose one fan, especially if that fan is being a huge condescending jerk.

“At this point, we can’t be honest and talk to her so we have to pretend and not be honest,” Kyle lamented.

Erika chimed in: “Maybe we shouldn’t have any conversations with her anymore.”

Dorit is right. This would be the easiest thing in the world to move past if Denise would stop storming off.
