Denise Richards’ reality show is going to be canceled

Shocking media moment of the day! Denise Richards’ legendarily crappy reality show, Denise Richards: It’s Complicated is getting the boot. Say it ain’t so! Why can’t any good, quality shows find a decent audience these days? Even though the show has lost a huge amount of its viewership – and E! has lost a lot of whatever respect people ever had for the network – I’m pretty sure this gem will end up on Brilliant but Canceled along with Arrested Development and Boomtown.

Former Bond girl Denise Richards’ reality show is facing the axe because of falling viewer figures, according to reports. Denise Richards: It’s Complicated launched on U.S. network E! earlier this year (08) and was an instant hit, allowing viewers a sneak peak into the actress’ life with her two daughters with ex-husband Charlie Sheen.

But sources claim the way she handled her public battle with Sheen over custody of three year old Lola and Sam, two, has turned viewers off. An insider tells America’s Star magazine, “The numbers started out pretty good – just over 1.5 million tuned into the premiere episode. But the audience has dropped off. Denise has turned into an unappealing reality star.”

Richards’ bad language on the programme has also angered the public. The source adds, “Viewers were disgusted that a mother of two young girls would use such foul language.”

Something tells me the tide really turned against Richards when she went to court accusing Charlie Sheen of molesting their daughters to improve her ratings. I’m pretty sure even the most entertainment-starved viewers will take a stand and turn off that crap. I really hope whatever career she had is utterly destroyed after this debacle.

Here’s Denise Richards returning to her car in Los Angeles last Saturday. Images thanks to WENN.

    Oh good. Because it’s not ‘complicated’. It’s shallow. And cruel. And devoid of human emotion. And just plain wrong.

  2. Syko says:

    What a surprise.

  3. Shane says:

    Well said. And her kids always look absolutley miserable.

  4. Carla says:

    I am not surprised. That is Karma. Let her get a proper job like most of us.

  5. neelyo says:

    Please please let LIVING LOHAN be next.

  6. SolitaryAngel says:

    Yahooo!!! There IS justice!

  7. daisy424 says:

    She sets a horrible example to her daughters, but now she will have more free time to harass their Father.
    It’s not Karma, it’s a crappy show.

  8. Megan says:

    As if celebrities don’t get enough pointless attention without a reality show as well. Cancel them all!

  9. fee says:

    Cant believe anyone wasted good money even making this pointless show! Get the Lohans off next…….please!

  10. FlamingoNut says:

    There IS a God!
    Next stop, Lohanville…

  11. caitlinsmom says:

    Good rittance to bad rubbish!

  12. Dingles says:

    The E channel is 90% feces anyway. They’ll take Denise Richards off then give Rumer Willis her own reality show, calling it “Rumer Has It” or something dreadfully stupid like that.

    Mark my words!!

  13. geronimo says:

    lol @ Rumer Has It! Brilliant. Copyright it before they steal it. 😛

  14. lola lola says:

    It should have been canceled after airing of episode one. Now maybe her dad can regrow some dignity.

  15. Mr. T says:

    Even trash has to be taken out of the kitchen eventually.

  16. Bodhi says:

    Quelle suprise! I love how they call her a former Bond girl. She was in one Bond & it was the worst one!

  17. CelebitchyFAN says:

    I think the only thing good that came out of that show would be that if Charlie Sheen wanted to get full custody of those poor girls all he would have to do is show the judge just one episode of their psycho mother. I can’t imagine that a judge would allow children to be in close contact with that crazy bitch

  18. poopie says:

    Maybe poor Denise can get a job at Sunset Tan or just move in with Hef and THE GIRLS NEXT DOOR !

  19. Anne says:

    I’m still not convinced that taking Charlie to court wasn’t justified but ya, that show sucked. It was so scripted! And she and her friends are terrible actors. For some reason I was compelled to watch, I watched most of the shows on Youtube and caught a couple on tv. The last episode I subjected myself to was the hawaiin vacation. The four ladies were suntanning topless, then, with a towel over her chest she chased the paps, I’m convinced that pap was hired by her as well. It was completely staged and rediculous. The only one worth watching on that show was her dad, Irv.

  20. brista says:

    Oh no! Now I will never get to see an episode of DENISE RICHARDS COLON IT’S COMPLICATED. Darn. But I bet 15 second clips will live forever on Talk Soup and since that’s the only way I knew about the show in the first place, I think I’ll live.

  21. MISSY says:

    Bye Bye Denise! It will be interesting to see how she will try to keep her name in the spotlight, Desperate Times call for Desperate Measures. Ha-Ha No one wants to see an episode of you trying to lose weight stupid.

  22. spoonman says:


    This trailer trash sailor talking B#tch should be cancelled immediately.

    How many times can anyone stomach her I didn’t stab Heather in the back act combined with her better then Charlie act or the paparazzi is mean to me act.

    Listen Denise-your not all that and your 15 mins is almost up. See Yaaaaaa!!!

    Here is an idea for E’s next reality show. Follow Charlie Sheen around as he seaches out and screws high priced prostitutes in Hollywood.

    Opps E…

    Missed that one and besides Charlie has enough respect for himself and those around him not to subject us all to his life…

    Wake up DR and smell the curb-because your getting kicked to the curb by E.


  23. alex says:

    At least!

    “Denise richards: I’m Constipated” didn’t show her as she expected anyway…

    I feel sorry for the kids.

  24. hello says:

    She’s such a vile woman. It was like her idea of the show was to clear her name, but she knew she wasn’t innocent in any of her drama, so had to badly act all the way through it.

    I am sad that it means my days of hearing Joel McHale saying “Denise Richards Colon It’s Complicated” are coming to an end. 😥

    I like the shape of her bag though. I don’t really like the color though.

  25. Ron says:

    If they would have started the show with the correct title,
    Denise Richards COLON Bitch from Hell
    I think it would have done much better.

    Now, I think we need to start punishing Ryan Seacrest for producing this drivel. The Shark Bite was a good start! Now………what should we do next?

  26. I choose me says:

    That bastion of riveting entertainment *snort* is going to be cancelled? Say it ain’t so. *Snicker*

  27. czarina says:

    I agree about feeling so bad for those kids–between Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen those poor girls have NOT been winners in the parental lottery.

  28. Mo2 says:

    Living Lohan is the worst excuse for air space I’ve ever seen. I have tried to watch it twice and find it mundane, stupid and boring. Just like my life.

  29. Sandra says:

    Il liked the show a lot. I thought Denise had a very charming quality in her. I watched all her shows and am sad that her show won’t be renewed. Sure she swears, but it doesn’t come off as vulgar in her mouth. Sad, sad, sad to see her go….

  30. vdantev says:

    *and there was much rejoicing* 😆

  31. valerie says:

    i agree with anne 100%…(and coincidentally, the first and LAST episode i ever watched was the one before that, when they were getting ready to go on the hawaain vacation.) what terrible, terrible acting. the first 5 minutes in, i could tell it was scripted and everything was “perfectly” planned out. it’s so scripted, it’s painful. there is really nothing more to be said about the show. the only reason it wasn’t canned within 2 episodes is because she’s denise richards. it’s hard to believe that’s the girl from wild things and drop dead gorgeous….these celeb reality shows are getting old anyways..they took a good thing and killed it. reality tv should be left to mtv, cops, and amazing race.

  32. paris herpes says:

    I was wondering why they were even bothering giving her her own show. Then I learned that Rachel “Chupacabra” Zoe was getting her own show too. At least she’s a stylist (of sorts) I’m not sure what Denise does anymore. I know, she was in that movie with Pamela Anderson…yes nuff said! She doesn’t do shit except increase her own carbon print on the planet, I suppose…

  33. Victoria says:

    OH NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.. PLEASE SAY IT AIN’T SSSOOOOOOO. I’m so heart bbbbrrookkeennnnn. boo-hoo. OK.. Enough funny. Don’t stop, Don’t pass GO. Collect just enough money to give to the producers of LIVING LOHAN, and buy them off to shut down the show, and turn off the lights. Then we will figure out a way to keep Denise Richards and Dina Lohan quite for 2009!!!!

  34. Nan says:

    I can hear Heather Locklear laughing all the way over here on the East Coast.

  35. wildcatalumni says:

    Honesty this is sad. Denise obviously wants to provide a life for her daughters. You can’t watch the show and deny that she loves and deeply cares for them. Parenting is difficult. I think she is trying to do a good job. She just got mixed up with the Hollywood thing and I’m sure once you’ve had a taste of that it is hard to give up. Her show being cancelled will only be an eye opener for her that she needs to exit Hollywood with whatever grace she may have left.
    She is not a whore. She could marry any number of very wealthy men. Instead she is trying to generate income on her own. I’m sure it was humiliating for her to do a reality show. Now she has dug a deep hole for herself with her accusations. (whether they are true or not she looks like the bad guy now)
    I do know that Denise was a really sweet girl in high school and I can’t image she has changed into the person that the media portrays. If she has changed that much and even 1 ounce of it is true Charlie should have custody of the girls. They will know what their mom accused their father of and will recent her forever. Such a sad story.

    Charlie Sheen doesn’t pretend to be anything than himself. He even makes fun of himself on his sitcom. Denise Richards knew all about him when they hooked up. He was an easy target and she played him well. She’s disgusting using her children on her show and crying over her dead mother. Her crap about being a single mother raising two small children. Give me a break! She lives in a four million dollar home and has the best of everything. As usual, just another pretty woman using her looks as a weapon. I’ve been a single mom raising two kids for 13 years, working 2 jobs, at times and that includes waiting tables. Charlie, take her to court, I think you could win!! You are the primary parent and have an extended family who don’t seek the limelight. Denise, quit whining and get a job!!
