Denise Richards is still reeling following a “terrifying” road rage incident that happened in California. On November 14, 2022, the former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star was driving with her husband when another driver driving behind them got impatient, according to TMZ.
The person in the other vehicle was yelling and tried to pass the vehicle, that was being drive by Phypers, and then pulled out a gun and fired off a shot, hitting the back of their truck. Both Richards and Phypers were uninjured, though both were more than likely shaken up after the scary incident that could have been much worse.
Heavy reached out to Richards’ rep for comment on the situation but did not hear back. However, since the report came out, Richards has spoken out on social media. She took to her Twitter account to respond to a nasty message that she read from another user.

“Don’t care kinda hope she would have taken a grazing shot to the neck honestly,” the tweet, which appears to have been removed by Twitter, read.
“Thank you. I would never wish any harm on anyone. What I experienced yesterday with my husband, not that you care. Was the most terrifying situation I have ever been in. I’m sorry a shot didn’t graze my neck…a******,” Richards tweeted in response.
