"I've had some pretty crazy messages telling me, like, to go and kill myself and things like that in very detailed ways," the Bravo personality shared while catching up with host David Yontef on his Behind the Velvet Rope podcast.
Dennis has been a regular fixture on the popular series since its launch in 2014. She was first a friend on the show before becoming a full-time cast member in season 2, detailing her personal peaks and pitfalls for the world to see and judge.
"It's not easy. It's scary," the mom of two said of the disturbing direct messages she has dealt with on social media. "And it makes you feel like someone is lurking out there cause like who would take the time to send a message like that. It's kind of freaky."
"You just kind of do what you can to protect yourself, like and stay away from people online that say things like that," Dennis continued. "Never respond."
Dennis said that with the bad also come plenty of good messages that can be uplifting. "I've definitely gotten long messages with people telling me like some of their personal stories," she shared. "It's wild to see how much an impact we have on viewers."
