Podcaster Danny Pellegrino wants to get Denise Richards a ‘reversible’ jacket for Christmas

Danny Pellegrino would like to help some of the current and former “Real Housewives” with their fashion this holiday season — ladies, am I right?

“Denise Richards would get a new jacket, one that could be worn many ways,” the “Everything Iconic” podcast host and Bravo savant, 37, tells Page Six Style.

“Maybe reversible, too, just to cover all our bases,” he continues, noting Richards’ outerwear struggles during a recent cameo, “so she doesn’t put it on wrong like she did on ‘RHOBH.’”

During the Dec. 6 episode of the reality show, the actress — a full-time cast member for Seasons 8 through 10 — arrived at a weed-filled dinner in fluffy pink outerwear, worn correctly at first.

But as Dorit Kemsley pointed out later in the evening, the jacket somehow wound up upside down on Richards’ torso, sparking a flurry of drama.

“I need Denise back full time after that whole jacket debacle,” Pellegrino says. “I’m like, ‘What are we doing here?’ Give Denise a diamond.”

If he could, Pellegrino — whose enthusiasm over Christmas is made clear in his latest book, “The Jolliest Bunch: Unhinged Holiday Stories” — would give Adriana de Moura, Marysol Patton and Kiki Barth full-time roles on “The Real Housewives of Miami” come Dec. 25.

“They would get mojitos in the opening credits of ‘The Real Housewives of Miami,’” he says of the hardworking “friends of” the cast, who film as if they are “Real Housewives.” 

“They deserve to be main cast members!” 

Meanwhile, Pellegrino believes that fellow Bravo lovers in everyone’s lives deserve temporary “It’s All Happening” tattoos ($8) — inspired by “Vanderpump Rules” star Scheana Shay’s own body art — from his line of merch.

And if there is extra cash to spare, he suggests throwing in a personalized Cameo message from “Real Housewives of New York City” alums Luann de Lesseps or Sonja Morgan, whose personalized videos fetch $135 and $99, respectively.

“Guaranteed laughs!” he says of the quirky clips de Lesseps, 58, and Morgan, 60, are known to record for customers. 

Pellegrino’s podcast listeners and social media followers know him for his opinionated “Real Housewives” commentary, but also for his unremitting devotion to pop princess-turned-fashion mogul Jessica Simpson. 

Of course, he’s thought about what he’d get her for Christmas, too, should their celebrations ever intersect.

Simpson memorably wore this Cecila De Bucourt shawl on various episodes of her MTV reality show, “Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica.”

“I’d love to get her the Cecila De Bucourt yellow shawl ($250) that she wore on ‘Newlyweds!’” he enthuses. “I’m dying for her to bring it back. Maybe she has her old one in the archives somewhere, but I either way I need her to do some throwbacks on Instagram with it!”

If you’re looking for a gift that isn’t meant for a Bravo or Simpson fan, however, Pellegrino notes that candles are universal. 

“I love a Voluspa candle,” he says of the holiday versions ($78) he plans to hand out this season. “The larger sizes really feel special, and it might be basic to give people candles, but I don’t care.”

Candy is also a go-to for Pellegrino, who likes to stuff stockings with treats from Malley’s Chocolates — like the festive Santa Foils.

“Malley’s Chocolates is a Northeast Ohio staple, and you can order online,” says the Midwest native, who now resides in Los Angeles.“They make incredible chocolate Santas, peanut butter cups, chocolate-covered Oreos and those cute foil-covered snowpeople.”

For those whose love for Christmas rivals his own, Pellegrino suggests picking up a copy of his latest book, “The Jolliest Bunch: Unhinged Holiday Stories.” Amazon

Pellegrino mentions that chocolate and books — particularly the ones that he pens — make a great pair. “My last book, called ‘How Do I Un-Remember This?’ is also available in paperback,” he adds, “which slips right into a stocking!” 

But the New York Times bestselling author’s latest literary endeavor, “The Jolliest Bunch,” is the perfect read for those whose love for the holidays rivals his own. 

“[It’s for] people who watch ‘Home Alone’ and ‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation’ every year!” Pellegrino tells us. “Lots of laughs, heart, 1990s and 2000s nostalgia and cozy hijinks.”
