Denise Richards celebrated the season alongside several of her former Bravo co-stars at a recent Christmas party hosted by Sutton Stracke. Sutton and co-star, Kyle Richards, both posted photos of the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star mingling with cast members featured on the most recent season of the Bravo show.
“It’s so fun seeing so many friends come together! Finally! I was able to have my annual #christmas party. This might have been my favorite yet,” Sutton wrote.
Kyle captioned her Instagram post—“Thank you @suttonstracke for a beautiful night.”
Kyle’s photo featured several Bravo personalities, including Crystal Kung Minkoff, her husband, Rob Minkoff, RHONY star, Luann de Lesseps, and RHOBH producer, Alex Baskin.
Garcelle Beauvais and Kathy Hilton joined the group in photos posted by the hostess, who shared several bonus snaps of her festive holiday bash. Sutton’s gorgeous home was decked out in spruce garland and the reality star offered followers a peek at the food and decorations.
Sutton revealed that she spent last Christmas alone, during the most recent season of RHOBH. She opened up about being ill with COVID, while her children spent the holiday with their father, in Italy.
“I had COVID during Christmas. Nothing better than spending Christmas day alone,” she shared during the episode.
Sutton added—“I am alone. I just thought, ‘Wow, this is my life as a single person,’ and I gotta fix that.”
Sutton and Denise share a friendship, despite Denise’s contentious exit from the show. Denise appeared on Seasons 10-11 and made her exit in 2020. Denise’s appearance at Sutton’s party sparked fan chatter that the actress might be ready for a comeback.
In October, both Sutton and Denise posted pics of a shared lunch in Malibu, California.
“Love a good catch up! #housewives will be housewives Thanks for lunch in Malibu😽💗💗,” Sutton captioned the friend pic.
Denise wrote—“Had a fun lunch with you beautiful Ms. Sutton girl. Glad we caught up. Although I think we could have chatted through their dinner shift 😅… well.. let’s do that slumber party with @garcelle . That will be fun. 💛”
In September, Denise revealed that she would be open to a RHOBH return, despite her broken friendship with Lisa Rinna, during an appearance on Jeff Lewis’ SiriusXM radio show.
“That is not true. I would be fine with working with Lisa and filming with her. I never said I wouldn’t come back with her,” the actress said.
Denise added that Rinna had reached out to apologize for her behavior.
“Never say never, you know,” Denise told Jeff when asked if she’d consider a return.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 13 will begin filming in January.
