Tamra Judge claimed to Brandi Glanville that Denise Richards tried to hook up with her at BravoCon in 2019, multiple sources exclusively confirmed to Page Six.
Insiders familiar with the situation tell us the explosive claim was made while Judge and Glanville were filming Season 2 of “The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip” in September 2021 at Dorinda Medley’s Berkshires, Mass. estate.
Sources say Judge, 54, told Glanville, 49, about the November 2019 alleged experience with Richards due to Glanville’s own alleged affair with the 51-year-old actress.
Sources close to Richards denied the judge’s allegation, telling us the story is “not true.”
Representatives for Richards, Glanville, Bravo and Peacock did not immediately respond to our requests for comment.
Glanville’s claim that she and Richards “had sex” in April 2019 unfolded during season 10 of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” which premiered in April 2020.
According to Glanville, she felt like Richards and her 49-year-old husband, Aaron Phypers, had “an understanding” and an “open marriage.”
Richards has always vehemently denied Glanville’s allegations and even allegedly sent cease-and-desist letters to Glanville and Bravo about the matter. She did not return for season 11.
We’re told Judge’s conversation with Glanville will be the biggest story in the second installment of ‘RHUGT’ – which also stars Vicki Gunvalson, Jill Zarin, Phaedra Parks, Taylor Armstrong and Eva Marcille and is set to air on Peacock in the months to come, but that there was a lot of unrelated drama unfolding as the cameras rolled.
We’re told Medley got into heated arguments with several of the ladies, which created an overall ‘awkward’ mood as she was the host of the trip.
Among those who fought with the former “Real Housewives of New York City” were former “Real Housewives of Orange County” stars.
During one explosive scene, Judge apparently “yelled” at Medley for “being so mean to people.”
We’re told Gunvalson’s fights with Medley were “really bad” and they struggled to work through their issues.
Meanwhile, we’re told Gunvalson also had some friction with Glanville, but the two “made amends early in the journey.”
Our sources tell us that Medley bonded the most with Zarin and Armstrong, especially during their shared experience of being widowed. This apparently annoyed some of their castmates, who “wanted to have fun, not to sit around and talk about dark stuff”.
Additionally, we’re told that Marcille “stepped up and surprised a lot of people” and that “‘Eva the Diva’ made several appearances.”
Aside from all the chaos and friction, the ladies managed to have fun! We’re told the band had “theme” parties, including a 1970s/1980s party and a Great Gatsby-inspired dinner party.
Although Parks slept in the dreaded “fish room” at Blue Stone Manor, she and Medley “walked away from the show with great friendship,” an insider tells Us.
Additionally, we’re told Bravo and Peacock originally tapped “Real Housewives of New Jersey” alum Dina Manzo and former “Real Housewives of Potomac” star Monique Samuels for the series. Sources close to the production tell us Manzo wasn’t interested but Samuels was on the fence until the last minute.
