Actress Denise Richards ‘visibly shaken’ after being shot at in random Calif. road rage attack

As crime in America skyrockets, even the rich and famous are finding themselves falling victim to random (and sometimes not-so-random) acts of violence.

Actress Denise Richards recently found herself in an incredibly scary situation as she and her husband, Aaron Phypers, were reportedly shot at by an angry driver on Monday. Pictures from after the incident show Richards on the phone, at times becoming emotional.

A photo of the couple’s vehicle shows a single bullet hole in the back of the truck bed, which could be proof that it was a random attack and not targeting the actress for personal harm.

“It’s all good. We’re all good,” Richards told paparazzi following the incident. Her husband noted that the attack could have happened “anywhere at any time” and the couple believes the suspect was just a “random man.”

Richards wasted no time wallowing in her fear, however, and was on the set of “Angels Fallen: Warriors of Peace” where she would film for 12 hours despite her shot nerves.

But Richards isn’t the only Real Housewife who has faced violence recently. In October 2021, fellow “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Dorit Kemsley was reportedly robbed at gunpoint by three men who broke into her home. They were able to make off with $100,000 in jewelry and handbags as her 7-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter slept. Her husband was out of the country at the time of the crime.

The alleged robbery occurred shortly after Kemsley bragged that she had personally picked out all of the clothing items in her closet.

“I’m really particular,” she said at the RHOBH reunion. “I want to wear what I want to wear, and it’s just easier, I just think, ‘I’ll buy it.’”

Perhaps both of these ladies could learn from “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kenya Moore. In 2017, Moore was able to chase three intruders, two men and one woman, out of her home by pulling a handgun on them.

In an Instagram post that contained screenshots of the incident taken from Moore’s home security system, she refused to apologize for making sure that she and her belongings were safe.

“I have a right to feel safe in my home and to protect myself,” Moore said. “I don’t care if I’m on TV. What if 3 strangers banged on your front door?”

For the record, Moore lived by herself in a remote area at the time this attempted robbery happened, making it all the more imperative for her to be able to defend herself as the police likely would have taken quite some time to arrive if she was able to call them at all.
