Erika Jayne Says Denise Richards Was 'Looking for a Fight' After Coming Back on 'RHOBH'
Erika Jayne told Us Weekly ahead of the season 13 premiere of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that she didn't understand where Denise Richards was 'coming from' and has personally 'moved on' from the drama that has transpired between the two over the past few seasons. But, as Jayne explained, it seemed like "Denise came to Kyle [Richard’s] house looking for a fight.” In other words, after taking a break from the show for the past three years, Richards apparently had an axe to grind with Kyle right out of the gate. As per Jayne, Denise returned to the show, ready to bring the heat.
Jayne shared that she didn’t understand why Richards, 52, was upset with her. So, to get some more clarity, the former called up friend and RHOBH alum Teddi Mellencamp to try to figure out what was going on. “I said, ‘Teddi, what is this about?’ Because Denise’s anger should not be directed toward me,” Jayne explained. “Denise’s anger should be directed at Brandi Glanville, Lisa Rinna and Teddi Mellencamp, not Erika. I just happened to be the only one [there].”

The RHOBH cast was having a party at Kyle’s home, and per Jayne, Denise came in and was 'saying all these things.' While Jayne herself was 'confused' about why Denise was upset, the former admitted she 'apologized' at the moment because she 'couldn’t remember' what happened. “Then she wanted to continue that on Taco Tuesday at Crystal [Kung Minkoff’s],” Jayne said. “And that’s when you see me say, I had to be [like], ‘Look, I did not want any part of this,’ but she wanted that. So I gave it to her at the end."

Richards' shocking return to RHOBH took everyone by surprise. In a trailer released last month, the Wild Things star casually strolled into a Housewives gathering, prompting a harsh reaction from Jayne. At a dinner party, Jayne threw shade by bringing up Richards' OnlyFans account: "Do you know it’s only $7 for a naked bundle of Denise Richards on OnlyFans?" When questioned about the low blow, Jayne doubled down: "You don’t think I’m going to go as f–king low as I can?" Richards fires back, calling Jayne 'one evil woman.' Jayne simply admitted, "I am."

Richards announced her return to RHOBH in April after attending a screening hosted by friend and former co-star Garcelle Beauvais. She explained, "I was at her screening as a friend — like a real friend — I didn’t tell anyone I was gonna be there. Production didn’t know. The next day, I was asked to go to some events — and so it’s been actually fun.” The actress' unforeseen comeback to the show follows a tumultuous departure in 2020 amid allegations of an affair.
