  • Apparently, she's been thinking about joining for some time now, but the timing wasn't right.

    "Denise has been wanting to join the show for a long time," a source told People about the mom of three's desire to get in on the reality action.

    "She's a huge Housewives fan and watches all of the shows. And she has close relationships with many of the women in real life, including Kyle and Lisa Rinna. The timing was never right for her in the past, but the producers needed to shake the dynamic of the show up after a season without much conflict. She's going to be a great fit. She's not afraid of the drama. And she lives a glamorous, Hollywood life -- which the show looks for."

  • Needless to say, news of Denise's casting is turning heads and has lots of people sounding off.


  • A number of peeps are so here for it and think she'll be an awesome addition.

    Denise's ex, actor Charlie Sheen, recently declared he's having a tough time making his monthly child support payments, because he has "less than $10 million" to his name and claims he has been blacklisted by the industry.
