Denise Richards is complicated enough for a second season

I know you’ve all been waiting with bated breath to hear the official word.  You can all breathe with ease again, Denise Richards and family have been renewed.  Denise told Us Magazine that her reality show on E!, It’s Complicated, has been renewed for a second season and they will start filming again in a few months.

Denise has been criticized, most ardently by ex-husband Charlie Sheen and his new wife, Brooke Mueller, for including the couple’s girls, Sam, 4, and Lola, 2, in the show.  It’s Complicated follows Denise as she tries to reclaim some respect in Hollywood and raise her daughters.  I would have told her the first thing on the list to successfully do either would be not do a reality show that follows you around while you try to reclaim some respect in Hollywood and raise your daughters.  But my idea of respect and successful parenting don’t include Ryan Seacrest, so Richards and I have different values.

“They (Sam and Lola) weren’t there 24/7, we definitely have set hours,” Richard said. “They have been around this since they were born so they were just happy momma was home working.”

Sam and Lola recently started preschool.

“They are only gone for a couple hours a day but its surreal to me how quick they have gone from babies to preschool,” Richards said.

As for Richards’ dad who is a regular on It’s Complicated?

“He was driving home on the freeway and a group of girls had him roll down his window and they yelled, ‘I love your show!'” Richards said. “He doesn’t know how funny he is. He thought they would only want him for one episode. He is hilarious!”

Irv Richards really is the best part of that show.  He’s obliviously unpretentious.  Most episodes show him steamrolled by his daughter, but not because she’s a celebrity.  Irv is a dad who dotes on his daughter so much he just doesn’t have the heart to say no.  Some might say that’s bad, and that it explains alot about his daughter, but he’s just so darn sweet, it’s impossible to feel negatively toward him.

Actually witnessing Sam and Lola smiling now and then is the only other reason I can recommend watching It’s Complicated.

    Poor little kid in that first pic. 😥 Then again, that was the look on MY face when I found out the show was renewed for another season.

  2. fluffyrabbit says:

    Don’t know why? as I’m not an avid reality shitv (my new word – figure it out) but I like this show. The only other reality show I can think of that I’ve actually watched is Breaking Bonaduce season 1.

    I’ll be watching!

  3. mom32 says:

    I’ve watched the first season one Sunday when there was nothing else on tv. And it’s actually not so bad. I’ve seen far worst. So maybe I’ll be the only one watching Season 2.

  4. CiCi says:

    No. I’ll be watching, too, but only to see how many times she can capitalize on Heather and Richie’s names in a 30 minute span – and to punch the couch every time I hear that infuriatingly annoying laugh that she and her sister share.

    Is infuriatingly a word?

  5. Mandy says:

    ok in the first picture is that little 4 year old’s hair colored? Seriously who colors their daughter’s hair at 4 years old to match their mothers? sad parenting! What will she be doing next getting her a breast augmentation at 6 ?

  6. Suzzie O says:

    you can clearly see the little girl’s roots from where her hair has been colored!

  7. cara says:

    She’s not so bad, and how can you not love a woman with such a peppered mouth?

  8. Kaiser says:

    Yeah, I hate myself for saying this, but I enjoy the show too. I actually like that Denise swears like a truck driver and she has a really raunchy sense of humor.

    Her dad *is* the best, though. Go, Irv!

    Dammit the forces of stupidity win again.

    Vile woman

  11. Jess Doherty says:

    I’m confused by the quote from Denise that says the girls are just happy that she is at home working. Working?? What exactly does she do?

  12. Maples says:

    Ok, this is weird, but I love Denise Richards shoes. Everytime I read a post about her she is wearing sensible shoes instead of prancing around in fabulous 6 inch Manolos. I find that to be the most endearing of her qualities.

  13. kate says:

    i have to say i am a fan of her salty language…quite like my own!

  14. Suzzie O says:

    does anyone care that she is highlighting her daughters hair at the age of 4?

  15. CiCi says:

    Jess- working from home as in working on her reality show which is mostly filmed from home. Instead of on a “set” for a movie or regular show.

    Suzzie – I’ve seen this kind of hair lightening a LOT on my friends’ kids and it can come from a summer of playing outside and swimming in a pool. Maybe it’s natural lightening grown out, showing darker roots.

    At least one can hope.

    Even if she is lightening her child’s hair, I think she is doing far more damage to them with her “peppery language” used in their presence and the fact that she is constantly calling herself fat. Her daughters will pick up on that quick.

    I thought we’d seen the back of the trollop…..

  17. pebbles says:

    sorry. sorry, everyone, but Denise looks pretty here and without makeup too. and i do like Irv.

  18. raven says:

    I don’t think I recall ever seeing a pic of Denise’s children happy . I can’t imagine who would want to watch her show, but then again people stop to gawk after a car accident and Denise is a train wreck. jmo

  19. Blanche says:

    Complicated? I thought she was constipated!!!!!!

  20. whatevs says:

    Oooh, so exciting! I actually watched every single episode on YouTube one night, and while it was sometimes painful and I did cringe a lot, it wasn’t THAT bad….especially with a beer in one hand. I really didn’t think it was gonna get picked up for a second season, but at least now I have something to look forward to.

  21. Heidi says:

    About coloring a little girl’s hair: I live in Vandalia Michigan and there are at least 4 little girls in 1st and 2nd grade who have their hair done (dyed or highlighted). Now, I probably wouldn’t do it to my daughter unless she was DEEPLY interested in getting it done, but that’s more of an upkeep issue than that I think it’s bad parenting. There are WAY worse things than coloring your kid’s hair or having cameras around. Ummm…ex-addict, violent dad anyone? And it’s so nice that he has an opinion on how to raise the kids. When he’s all grown up, maybe Denise will even listen to him.

  22. Jeanne says:

    Noooo, noooo, nooo! Why doesn’t Heather Locklear have a show then?
