Lisa Rinna proves she texted an apology to Denise Richards over affair rumors

Lisa Rinna has the receipts.

The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star, 58, took to her Instagram Stories Thursday to prove she texted her former co-star Denise Richards an apology after it was brought to question on the Bravo reality series.

A screenshotted text message from Rinna dated Oct. 2 read, “Denise, I’m deeply sorry for the way I treated you on and around the show. I hope you are doing well, and I wish you and your family nothing but the very best. ❤️.”

Richards’ alleged response on Oct. 4 read, “Thank you so much for your text. It means alot [sic]. I hope you and your family is [sic] good. 🙏 ❤️.”

Rinna explained in a separate post on her Instagram Stories why she chose not to share the texts on “RHOBH” while filming.

“I didn’t show that on the show Because I thought it was private but since I’ve now seen the show thought we should set the record straight,” the Rinna Beauty founder wrote.

Rinna posted these texts on her Instagram Stories allegedly sent between her and Richards.

In Wednesday’s episode, Rinna revealed she had reached out to Richards, 51, after they had a falling out on Season 10 of “RHOBH.” The rift in their friendship took place after the “Days of Our Lives” alum pressed the “Wild Things” star over an alleged affair with Brandi Glanville, which Richards has vehemently denied.

“I thought my friend would have told me the truth,” Rinna previously said on “RHOBH,” refusing to believe Richards saying there was never a hookup. “There’s sadness in that, because then I go, ‘Well, what else has Denise lied to me about over the years?

“It feels like Denise has weaponized our friendship and used everything she can to make me feel guilty. ‘Lisa, you know better. You know what my poor kids have been through.’”

After Rinna claimed on the current 12th season of “RHOBH” that she had texted Richards saying she was sorry, fellow “Housewife” Garcelle Beauvais asked the “Drop Dead Gorgeous” star whether it was true she got a text, to which she replied, “When?”

The denial seemingly compelled Rinna to clear her name on social media.

A rep for Richards did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment on Rinna’s screenshots, and Richards has not addressed the posts herself on social media.
