Denise Richards is reportedly leaving “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” over an “excessive” amount of money, which the network was unwilling to pay in order for her to return for a third season.
“People think that she didn’t want to come back and that it’s because she got ‘mean-girled’ [by other cast members],” a source with knowledge about the 49-year-old actress leaving the reality series told Page Six in a piece published Monday.

“The truth is she did want to come back,” the source added. “But [Bravo] didn’t want to pay her what she asked for. It was way out of her pay grade.” (RELATED: ‘Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills’ Brandi Glanville Opens Up About Alleged Affair With Denise Richards)
Sources close to the “Wild Things” star told Page Six that “Bravo called her last week to ask her if she wanted to return, and she took a couple of days to think about it.”
The source also explained that a few days later Richards’ agent let Bravo know she had “decided to call it quits”
