“I went in very naïve, I think, the very first season. I want to be myself, because some people do know of me and I didn’t want to play a character, otherwise let’s call it scripted. So I just wanted to be myself on the show, and you know, whatever happens happens, and just react how I really would,” she said of filming.

“My first season I had a great time getting to know all the women, and it was fun to be able to — you know, we get to go to fabulous restaurants and trips, and I had fun with them, and I genuinely formed some great friendships,” she went on to say, adding that the following season has been different.

“It’s been a different experience…but, you know, people are watching, so that’s good.”

As has been previously reported, Brandi Glanville claims that she had an affair with Denise, which Denise has denied. The scenario has not yet played out on TV.

“If it airs the way it was shot, then people will see what happened,” she said of the sitaution.

“We wrapped for the season and then we do all our confessionals and everything,” she went on to say of the show’s production.

“I think that we’re on hiatus because we got so far behind with the confessionals with the COVID. We just recently started doing them where we’re filming ourselves basically. We have someone come in and set everything up with a mask…so we got behind for that. So I think that’s part of the reason why we have to go on hiatus. We gotta catch up with the episodes.”
