BH90210 is getting a visit from a real housewife of Beverly Hills: RHOBH star Denise Richards will appear in the upcoming Fox “reboot” as a heightened version of herself, TVLine has confirmed.

Tori Spelling broke the news of Richards’ casting with an Instagram photo and the caption, “Welcome to our @bh90210 family my friend @deniserichards.” Richards responded with, “Thank you for including me T… and having me [be] part of the BH90210 journey. Talk about everything comes back full circle. One of my very first jobs was #beverlyhills90210. Love all of you guys.”

Richards guest-starred in the original Beverly Hills, 90210 Season 2 finale as Kelly Taylor’s cousin Robin McGill.
