Remember in October when Denise Richards turned her Blue Mountain State press tour into a family vacation to New York with her daughters and Charlie Sheen? It ended up with a disastrous night at the Plaza Hotel, but Denise carried on with her press tour, anyway? Babe actually used it to help milk her own TV appearances.
And besides, Denise wrote her memoir, went on Oprah to talk about it, did Dancing With the Stars...It's not like the lady is ever press shy! So why now, after her ex-hubby Charlie is hurling insults her way, even going so far as to call her a "dog killer," is Denise staying silent?
Money talks, people! Or doesn't, in this case.
And it's not just Denise who is keeping her lips zipped, her rep didn't return our request for comment, either.
With Charlie's Two and a Half Men paycheck gone, we're told Denise is making extra efforts to ensure that regular 'n' hefty child-support check (not to mention a few other ones) continues to make its way into her bank account.
So it appears that Denise is following some sage advice: When you have nothing nice to say, don't say it at all. Looks like Charlie should take a page out of her book.
As we're sure you'll recall, during his second Torpedoes of Truth tour stop in Chicago last weekend, Sheen addressed the crowd of thousands, calling Denise Richards "the kidnapper" and spoke very bluntly about the night in March the cops raided his house, saying, "Nice try, bitch. I got those kids back, didn't I? She sent 9,000 cops to my house looking for drugs and guns. They found one gun from 1848."
Yikes! And as if it were possible, Charlie stooped even lower and tweeted, "We must bombard with Warlock Napalm, that traitor and loser whore #DUH-neese POOR-ards. A vile kidnapper and now dog thief. hate."
Funny usage of the word "whore," dude. I guess you should know, huh?
Much more importantly, Denise took the two pugs from Charlie after she had heard from his neighbors that he wasn't treating them well. Once in Denise's care, one of the pups unfortunately died from malnutrition.
Denise then tweeted: "Very sad...our boston terrier Lucy passed away. She was 12, had her since she was a pup. Been thru so much with me...we will miss her."
So while Charlie continues on his cross-country Torpedoes tour (he got another big ovation last night in Columbus, Ohio), Denise packed up the kids and showed off her bikini body in the Bahamas.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Winning!
Richards tweeted that she is currently on her way back to Los Angeles, "bye paradise!!!! back to reality!" followed by, "Just caught our connecting flight! Working on my book during the flight..coming together. Can't wait for you to read it!
Uh yeah, us neither. Hopefully it's an updated tell-all?
