While Charlie Sheen has vowed to never say ex-wife Denise Richards’ name in public again, Denise just refuses to stop blabbing about him to every media outlet in town. In her latest interview with TV Guide, Richards talks about Charlie’s treatment of their two girls, Sam and Lola, at his wedding to Brooke Mueller, and once again tries to make everyone believe that she’s not a husband stealer.
Denise Richards has a message for her ex-husband Charlie Sheen: “The gloves are off,” she says in the upcoming issue of TV Guide. “When I keep my mouth shut, [Charlie] continues to fuel [the feud] anyway, so I’m not gonna sit back anymore.”
Richards’ daughters Sam, 4, and Lola, 3 with Sheen attended their dad’s nuptials to Brooke Mueller on May 30. (Click here to see weddings of the year.)
As Usmagazine.com previously reported – “They were told there were going to be flower girls. But then Charlie changed his mind,” Richards tells TV Guide.
For the ceremony Sheen and Mueller gave the girls necklaces to wear.
“But when they came home I was told by the nanny they had to give them back,” Richards fumes.
“I said, ‘But aren’t they a gift?’ The nanny said, ‘They are, but they can only wear them at his house.’ I said, ‘Have him call his lawyer then, ‘cause I’m not gonna tell a 3- and 4-year-old, ‘You have to give back the necklaces Daddy gave you and only wear them at Daddy’s house.’”
Richards continues, “Now, I know this sounds f—ing crazy – and it is. But this is what I deal with.”
But the E! It’s Complicated reality star hasn’t given up on the idea of finding happily ever after.
“I’m not bitter from this. I know I’ll find the right one, damn it. But when I do I will never get divorced. I’m done,” Richards says. “But I love men. I’ve never ended badly with someone except my ex-husband.”
That includes her controversial romance with Heather Locklear’s ex husband Richie Sambora.
“The timeline was that Charlie and I ended, then my friendship with Heather [Locklear] – which wasn’t a long friendship – ended, then she filed for divorce, and then Richie [Sambora] and I got together after that,” Richards explains. “But I knew that in the public’s eye – because Heather is America’s TV sweetheart – it wasn’t gonna go over well…Because the press made it seem that she and I were having dinner on Friday and I was screwing her husband on Sunday, and that’s not the case. Heather knows that I did not ‘steal’ Richie. She knows it.”
Here’s an idea: Denise doesn’t even have to show up in person to these interviews anymore. She can just send the same tape of herself trashing Charlie and insisting that she didn’t stab Heather Locklear in the back. It would save everyone a lot of time. I am nothing if not efficient!
As for her claims about the necklaces and Charlie deciding not to let his daughters be flower girls, he could have a very good reason for both. Both of the girls seem very shy- perhaps he didn’t want to put them in a position where everyone at the wedding was looking at them. As for the necklaces, all I can say is, there are certain things I don’t let my daughter bring to her dad’s house when she visits, such as her jacket or her favorite stuffed animal, because I know from experience she will either lose them or forget to bring them home. Still, if Charlie wanted the necklaces to stay at his house, he should have taken them from the girls before he sent them home. Either way, Denise is not doing herself or her kids any favors by trotting this stuff out in public.
Picture note by Celebitchy: Denise Richards is shown in a still from her E! Reality show, thanks to Splash News. In the still above, she had just attended a “passion party” and was talking about it, but I don’t know what she’s gesturing about because the clip I saw of her pole dancing with her friends didn’t include that part.
