Beverly Hills just got a new Drop Dead Gorgeous resident and her name is Denise Richards! That’s right, we can catch the film and tv star on the new season of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.

Richards spoke to People about the new endeavor saying “I am so excited to join the cast of [RHOBH] as I am a huge fan of the show.”  And how could you not be?! This franchise has now been the home to several well known celebrities and has given fans a juicy glimpse into their personal lives. It makes the drama much more compelling when we already know a bit about the newbie.

The 47-year old has had a lengthy career in front of the camera as she has been acting since 1990. She is most known for her roles in hit films such as Starship Troopers, Wild Things, and The World Is Not Enough. Richards is no newbie to the reality game either, as she starred in her own reality show Denise Richards: It’s Complicated in 2008. Complicated is a perfect way to describe her past too as she weathered a tumultuous relationship with Charlie Sheen. These Beverly Hills bitties will be a walk in the park compared to that mayhem.

The new casting choice makes perfect sense as Richards is already real-life friends with OG housewife, Kyle Richards and fan favorite, Lisa Rinna. That’s an interesting pair to be caught between as Kyle and Lisa have been at odds in the past, and will probably be back at each others throats in no time. Sounds like a recipe for a successful (dramatic) Housewives season!

There’s no exact date on a premiere for the new season so check back for more updates!
