Denise Richards has officially joined the cast of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” the actress announced on Wednesday.

“I am so excited to join the cast of [RHOBH] as I am a huge fan of the show,” Richards said in a statement to People. “I am looking forward to spending time with all the ladies… and hopefully meeting Boy George!!”

Richards comes on as the Bravo reality show begins filming its ninth season. She joins a cast that includes Kyle Richards, Vanderpump, Lisa Rinna, Erika Girardi, Dorit Kemsley and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. (Kemsley’s husband is Boy George’s manager).

Richards has been in talks to join the cast for weeks, with friend Rebecca Romijn hinting at the possibility on Instagram last month.

The actress previously starred in her own E! reality show, “Denise Richards: It’s Complicated.” It ran for two seasons beginning in 2008, documenting her life and career following her split from ex-husband Charlie Sheen.
