And while we can't really blame her, we still had to ask how everything was going with her ex-husband since their NYC family trip made headlines when she hosted an event last night...
Denise did offer that she would be celebrating the holidays with her family.
"Our plans are to spend it with the family," she told me at the premiere of Cat Diaries by Friskies (yes, that is a real event), "My girls made a very detailed Christmas list so I'm excited that I have however long I have with them believing in Santa."
But when asked if her plans would include Charlie, Denise demurred, "We'll be spending the holidays with family."
Tired of playing cat and mouse myself, I decided to flat out ask how Charlie was doing these days since his whole hooker and hospitalization scandal.
"I don't wanna talk about that, but thank you," Denise replied.
Polite, focused and firm, the Wild Things actress and one-time E! reality star seems to have come through all this drama just feline fine.
