I don't think it was intentional but Sutton saying she heard it months ago doesn't give more credence to the rumor but it does give more age to the rumor.
Again, that doesn't make it true but it also doesn't make it something just invented recently.
I had a lot of thoughts about Denise's tears, "bravo, bravo, bravo" and Denise bringing up that she's going through things she doesn't want on camera.
I don't know that the pain would be about Brandi's "lies" if they're truly lies. As others have speculated, it could be true and she doesn't want it on camera because it has caused issues with Aaron (a bit more on that later)*.
Or it could be something completely unrelated that the women know about and Denise was using tears and "bravo bravo bravo" as a way to pray on whatever sympathy they have for any real issues she's going through.
Because it looked like she found the rumor about her and Brandi sleeping together funny when it was first brought up.
Anyway, this is not the first time the show has shown her trying to "direct" the content. It happened when she was strongly telling Aaron to shut his mouth when they left the barbeque.
*So last season, Denise mentioned she took Aaron to get a happy ending and she ended up getting one too. They also went to a strip club together when they left the backyard barbeque. Those date night activities are pretty non-traditional so I don't quite understand what Denise's "I'm very married" was supposed to convey. She's provided enough evidence that "very married" for Aaron and Denise could be vastly different than what the other woman would conceive of for themselves.
Maybe the issue is that they're not traditional but Aaron really doesn't want her telling the world about their sexual escapades which is why she has clammed up quite a bit this year and was mad Rinna told everyone she was going to go to a strip club.
No but it's on camera. They know it's on camera. Even if they care, or don't care or even don't think it's true, Denise had to be told what was being said. Not telling her and letting her find out once the episode aired wouldn't have gone over well either.
She said Denise doesn't have to tell anyone but that she wants to know the truth. It's the mix of curiosity but also know it's none of her business.
My favorite episode of the show I've seen was last season's glamping ep where they seemed to have a lot of fun.
That didn't bother me. A lot of people don't take allergies serious, especially if they've never heard of them. She was probably very limited in what she could eat there and be "safe."
