For those that follow the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the bomb that was dropped this season surrounding Denise Richards and her alleged affair with Brandi Glanville is one chaotic storyline we can't look away from! As the behind-the-scenes details are revealed, viewers are directing their anger towards Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp.  

Oh, how the drama never ends in the land of Beverly Hills! On the current season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, all of the details surrounding the alleged affair between Denise Richards and Brandi Glanville is getting revealed!

As more behind-the-scenes information comes to light, it would seem the fire is now being directed at Teddi Mellencamp and Kyle Richards, as fans are accusing the way they went about sharing the knowledge of the rumour was "bi-phobic" and a nasty way to "out" their co-star as bisexual.

Teddi and Kyle defend their actions

In the very tense last few episodes, Teddi Mellencamp and Kyle Richards confronted their co-star, Denise Richards, on the rumours and allegations Brandi Glanville told them surrounding the alleged affair.

Denise has adamantly denied all rumours, but the two ladies couldn't seem to put it to rest and continued to push their co-star on details, questioning the authenticity of her denial.

Both Kyle and Teddi appeared on Wednesday's episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohenwhere the two addressed the controversy surrounding some of their comments in regards to Denise.

The two reality stars were called "bi-phobic", and many members of the LGBTQ+ community felt they "outed" their co-star on camera without her permission.

"It has nothing to do with that," Kyle said in regards to her feelings of bisexuality.

"If you hear a married woman has an affair and you’re on a reality show, it’s gonna come up," she continued.

"It’s been said on camera. If it had never been told on camera it would not have come up, honestly. But it’s an affair, regardless of if it’s a man or a woman and you’re on a reality show," she said.

Teddi then chimed in and added, "When I said at the first dinner, 'This is really bad,' it’s not because it was a woman, it was because it was an affair that we were told on camera. And that’s the part you hate having to talk about, but it was already out there."

Fans feel Teddi "outed" Denise

Another fan then questioned Teddi on why she decided to "out" Denise, to which she replied, "I don’t think I ever looked at it as outing Denise."

"I was trying to talk to her about things that she said about us and the group," she continued. "And she kept saying, 'I don’t even talk to Brandi. I don’t even talk to Brandi.' And all of the women including Denise were like, 'Just say it, say it, say it.' And that’s really how it went down."

Kyle then said she and Teddi felt they "owed it to viewers" to follow through on a storyline that was presented to them on camera.

"I never like to see anybody hurt on this show," Kyle said. "It’s very difficult when personal things come up and unfortunately, like I said, that is the downside of reality television."

"When Teddi and I were told that information, it was such an, 'Oh my god! What are we going to do?' moment," Kyle added, "Because obviously, we can’t just let the audience see that and then it’s done. So, of course, it’s going to come up."

Both Teddi and Kyle have stated they believe Brandi is no liar, and seem to be doubting the truth behind Denise's side of the story.
