The Truth About Denise Richards' Husband, Aaron Phypers

Denise Richards and her husband, Aaron Phypers, are a power couple. Fans of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills know this quite well, having seen the pair in action on the show. Phypers has seen more than his fair share of drama on the show since joining RHOBH in 2019, but what many don't know is that the reality show was not his first TV appearance.

Phypers has some acting roles under his belt, per IMDb. In 2009, he appeared in the short The Curiosity of Penny Parker and in the documentary Air Emergency. In 2011, he starred in another short, The Leap.

Phypers isn't the most prolific actor, but he does have a successful career. As noted by Life & Style, he runs Malibu's Quantum 360, a healing center. Per Quantum 360's website, it "is a state-of-the-art healing center designed to foster optimal health in mind, body, and spirit." Phypers and Richards met at the center, and quickly fell for each other.

"He is the most compassionate & hardest working man I know. Even on his days off, he's... helping people selflessly. I love all of his modalities & learning about new technology to help different things. It fascinates me & I love learning too. Many may not understand but I have seen so many people come & being grateful that he changed their life. And he changed mine & my daughters. Love him so much."

Phypers was previously married to Nicollette Sheridan, who starred on Desperate Housewives. The couple were married for six months back in 2015 and separated the following year.
