- Actress Denise Richards joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this year, which recently wrapped its ninth season.
- Denise is reportedly one of the highest paid women in the Housewives franchise .
- Sources suggest she will return for season 10, but Denise has not confirmed the speculation at this point.
It's no secret that Denise Richards was Beverly Hills' resident scene-stealer on this season of Real Housewives, so audiences everywhere are wondering: Is she coming back for Season 10?
Last August, when Radar Online reported that Denise would be joining the cast on Season 9, receiving the largest contract $1 million per season the outlet noted the star signed on with a stipulation that guaranteed her appearance on four seasons. Denise's rep quickly denied this, but a source told Us Weekly in July that Denise is definitely interested in coming back.
Denise had a lot of fun doing The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and sharing her life with fans of the show, the source said . She hasnt been formally asked to return for another season. Those talks havent happened with any of the ladies.
Over the weekend on Instagram, Denise teased her return to the show with a photo of "Botched Botox Barbie," captioning the snap, "Seeing this picture made me think of #RHOBH #MySecondSeason #Season10 ".

"The fans really responded to Denise with positivity and love on social media, the source told Us Weekly, which certainly seems to be true.
On her Botched Botox Barbie post, one commenter wrote, "Hilarious! I'm only watching another season because you are staying. You are the only one who is normal!"
This season, Denise has showed up to Housewives lunches dressed in a tank top and denim cutoffs, discussed her sex life with refreshing frankness, and avoided getting wrapped up in the Lisa Vanderpump-Dorit Kemsley puppy adoption controversy that took over much of this season and ultimately led to Vanderpump's departure.
In an interview with Newsweek , longtime Housewife Kyle Richards revealed that the cast's dynamic changed when Vanderpump left.
"I have to say, the cast really sort of bonded over everything that's happened with Lisa. I became a lot closer with all of the women," she said . "Our relationship has gone to a deeper level and we've gained a lot more trust with each other, so that's been really nice to have."
So does that mean all of this season's remaining Housewives are coming back for Season 10? While it's not 100% clear, but it's looking good for Denise.
