Denise Richards joined the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast for the 2019 and 2020 seasons before exiting the show after finding herself at odds with basically all of her cast mates. Fans will recall that much of the 2020 season’s drama centered around Denise: an alleged affair with RHOBH alum Brandi Glandville, a feud with longtime friend and RHOBH co-star Lisa Rinna, and her husband, Aaron Phypers' unnecessary involvement in the ladies' drama.
Now, on RHOBH season 13, Denise made her highly-anticipated return to the series to attend Garcelle Beauvais’ movie screening and Kyle Richards'weed dinner party. The former Housewife won’t be a full-time cast member, but according to Bravo’s The Daily Dish, she’ll appear occasionally throughout the series.
While Garcelle told BET that Denise’s return was “really fun” for her, some of the other cast members (and diehard fans) may be wondering if Denise's husband will be making an appearance this season as well.
If you need a refresher on Aaron and his relationship with Denise, here's everything to know:
Who is Denise Richards' husband, Aaron Phypers?
Aaron runs Quantum 360 in Malibu, California, which is a "a healing and wellness clinic," according to its website. The facility uses "various frequency generating devices to help people re-establish homeostasis and balance their body, mind and spirit." The Quantum 360 website states that after Aaron did these frequency sessions, "clients began to heal from all sorts of ailments—imbalances, just by being exposed to specific sets of frequencies."
In a season 10 episode of RHOBH, Denise said that she met Aaron at his center where he was "doing DNA repair, anti-aging, and that sort of thing." The relationship seems to have started out purely professional, and then, according to Denise, "One time we had sex in one of his rooms. We've been inseparable ever since."
Later in the season at a dinner party, Aaron explained a bit about his business and told Denise's former co-stars, “Everything you’ve been taught about how diseases process and stuff is not true.” Richards quietly responded to him, “We already have people following us, be careful."
During the episode, in a confessional, Denise further explained that “Aaron has a job where people get tremendous results and, sometimes, certain organizations don’t like to see those results because they make a lot of money otherwise…and there’s times we’re followed.”
Recently, the couple attended a gala in June for Race to Erase MS, showing their support for the health and medical field. Denise posted a series of pictures on Instagram with the caption, “FBF to this amazing night with my hubby🧡🧡.”
Denise and Aaron have been married for five years.
After about a year of dating, the couple tied the knot on September 8, 2018. Denise told People that Aaron picked the 8th because the number stands for infinity. After the nuptials, the couple rode off on a motorcycle together. Denise wore a romper so she could hop on the back without a hitch.
Though neither of them shared wedding anniversary posts on Instagram this year, the couple still appears to be going strong in 2023. About a week after their five-year wedding anniversary, both Denise and Aaron shared a photo together at a charity event on Instagram.
He used to be married to Nicollette Sheridan.
Aaron was married to the Desperate Housewives star in 2015. After six months together, they separated in 2016. But it took two years to finalize their divorce in August 2018.
Aaron has an acting background.
According to IMDB, Aaron was in two shorts called The Curiosity of Penny Parker and The Leap. He also appeared in a television documentary series called Air Emergency. His last acting project was back in 2011.
That is, until 2020 when—due to the COVID-19 pandemic—Aaron helped his wife out when The Bold and the Beautiful stars were asked by production to encourage their significant others to fill in for any human contact and “love scenes,” according to People.
In a virtual appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show in 2020, Denise shared that having Aaron on set and filming romantic scenes with her hubby had “been really fun.”
Denise was open about the couple's sex life on RHOBH.
During her time on the Bravo show, Denise caught some flack from the other Housewives for saying Aaron has a “very big penis,” and talking about encouraging him to get a “happy ending” massage on the May 7, 2019 episode, when the ladies went on a group camping trip. She was met with gaping mouths and silence, though the other women eventually made light of it and joked that they were interested in getting one, too.
Denise later said on the RHOBH After Show that she thought her comments were NBD. She’s dated people in the past who’ve had a "happy ending" massage, she said, and she thought it would be fun for Aaron to get one as well.
In 2019, Denise talked to US Weekly about the comments she made on the show, and how Aaron reacted. “There have been a few things that I’ve said that [Aaron’s] been like, ‘Why did you say that, baby?’ And I’m like, ‘I know, I’m sorry,’” the actress said. “But he knows me and he shakes his head and he loves me for that too and, you know, I’m a very honest person.”
He is in the process of adopting Denise’s daughter.
In July 2019, Denise revealed that Aaron was working on becoming the now 12-year-old’s legal father. But the process came to a halt after losing documents, including Eloise’s birth certificate in the fires that almost destroyed their Malibu home, per Us.
“He’s an amazing father,” Denise told Us. “I already obviously call him, you know, her dad and that’s our daughter and we’re going through the process of, you know, him adopting her and it’s the best thing ever.”
Aaron loves motorcycles.
Not only did he and Denise ride away on a bike after their wedding, but he posts about them on Instagram often.
Aaron's also into woodworking.
He shared videos of a bench he made for his healing center and a sweet deck project for an elderly friend. Denise loves it, natch. "I've never been with a handyman," she revealed on The Daily Dish. "He's super handy."
