Denise Richards certainly has the press, whether she wanted it or not.
"We're in an amazing place. We've been getting along great for the last year-and-a-half, and we're doing our best. So as far as that situation, I'm just trying to protect the girls from it as much as possible."
Well, Denise's acquaintances are speaking out about the gal's take on the nasty situation, and it ain't pretty:
"Denise [Richards] is an idiot," says a source very tight with the Wild Things star. "Charlie is an addict."
After everything D and C have been through, we thought it was nice they were putting the past aside for their kids (like taking their daughters to see Mary Poppins), but after seeing Richards stay so calm on all these talk shows when discussing Charlie, we're pretty disturbed she's not livid. Aren't you?
Rumored drugs and naked mayhem just across the hall from the rest of the fam? Why the hell isn't the Parents Television Council worried about something real like this, instead of stupid GQ photo shoots?
Even though Sheen's reps are saying he had an allergic reaction to some medication, other tabloid stories claim Charlie supposedly had cocaine in his system, lots of alcohol, and a nude companion hiding in the bathroom while he took to throwing crap around his top-floor Plaza suite.
Keep in mind, Sheen has not been charged or arrested. Still, all of this allegedly went down while his two daughters were mere steps away.
"A leopard doesn't change its spots," ‘fesses the Richards insider, alluding to Denise's enjoyment of the media attention. "She's working it like she usually does—getting to sell herself; plus, get all the press from showing off the kids."
Look, we're all for parental units getting along for the sake of their kids, but honey, wake up and see who's sniffin' what.
Your ex has been in and out of rehab, and it would appear he has relapsed again. Is this the kind of dad who should be around Lola and Sam? We say doubtful. Time to show some tough love babe, even if you're not in love with him.
