Denise Richards’ new memoir will share ‘beautiful love story’ she had with Charlie

Denise Richards has a new memoir coming out next month, which I haven’t heard about until now. I would speculate that she started writing it to cash in on the Charlie hysteria following his incredible public breakdown, but she announced plans for it back in October, 2010, and Charlie didn’t start to lose his sh*t until around late January, with the apex happening in early March. Denise’s memoir was originally not scheduled to be released until the summer of 2012, but it’s been pushed forward to this year probably due to Charlie’s mess. We’ve already seen her 2005 divorce declaration, detailing how Charlie was addicted to hookers and porn and threatened to kill her toward the end of the marriage. Everyone vilified her for that at the time and there were plenty of accusations that she was embellishing her story in order to make out in the divorce.

Now that we’ve seen how off the rails Charlie really is, and how he abused his next wife too, most people think she was telling the truth. She never said “I told you so” or went into much detail about Charlie though, and remained really classy and probably more tight-lipped about the whole thing than she needed to be. Now that Denise’s memoir is coming out, I think we can assume that she won’t dish any more details than the divorce declaration has already revealed. She told OK! that it will also detail the “beautiful love story” that she had with Charlie. Snakes, con artists and sociopaths can be incredibly charming, can’t they?

As Denise Richards plans to release her memoir next month, the mom of two opened up about what readers can expect to find within the pages of her candid story, including what life has been like since going through “one of the worst” divorces with Charlie Sheen, how she is keeping her kids away from the drama, and her own head held high in the process.

“I went through a lot and I get asked a lot of questions about that time in my life so I figured that I would share my story and hopefully, anyone that is dealing with challenges will know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel,” Denise explained to reporters of the content of her upcoming book to while out at the Time for Heroes Celebrity Carnival Sponsored by Disney to Benefit the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

While the memoir is set to focus on her entire life up until present day, Denise told OK! on Sunday that she does discuss going through a divorce and, “about how it is a struggle and we had one of the worst divorces so if we get into a good place, that’s great.”

The Wild Things star revealed that she also wanted to write about the better side of her marriage, “because people have only gotten the rotten stuff so you know, there was a beautiful love story between he and I and I know that it went the way it went, but I talk more about how I felt during that time because I feel like a lot of women can relate to that, going through a divorce and custody and being a single parent and trying to work and all of that stuff.”

I guess we can’t expect Denise to talk too much crap about Charlie given how she’s handled everything for the past few years. (She used to talk some mild crap about him, but stopped and just started saying that she was keeping it quiet for her girls’ aka “the money’s” sake.) Charlie’s probably starting to go broke given all he’s said about needing money and I bet that his child support payments aren’t as regular lately. Denise should just release a tell all about what it was like living with a bipolar whack job with a ton of resources at his disposal, but you can tell she’s not going to do that. I really want to know about her whole PR-friendly romance with Richie Sambora and what happened to her friendship with her then-neighbor, Richie’s ex Heather Locklear. Denise has kind of revealed all that already though, and claimed that she was never really close friends with Heather and that they had a falling out before she got together with Richie in 2006. Heather and Richie were supposedly already broken up with Denise got together with him, but still that had to sting somewhat.

    This woman needs to keep her stories straight! She complained for years and released timely but damaging recordings of Charlie threatening her and saying a ton of racist, misogynist and violent shizz to her. Now that Charlie went on tour and made a killing off his Torpedo of Foolishness show, all of a sudden Denise wants the public to see the softer side of Charlie and explain why she (they) fell in love?? Who is she kidding??

    If she wanted to keep herself out of the drama, then this memoir is not the way to do it. Is she hurting for money already? Lawd have mercy!!!

  2. Elizabeth says:

    @ Karen
    I think she needs to write the memoir now while Charlie is in the news. He will run out of money soon and her child support will be gone. So she needs the money from the book now to make up for future child support payments that won’t come. The girl’s got to plan for the future.

  3. Patricia says:

    Why do those girls always look so miserable???

  4. Obvious says:

    @Patricia wouldn’t you if Charlie was your father???

    I just think they really hate the cameras.

  5. Embee says:

    Her daughters have identical, miserable-looking expressions. So sad.

  6. Shay says:

    the idea of the memoir has to be related to Sheen’s unemployed status.
    How else will she get her money now that she is older, could never act, and Hollywood is populated by young things?

  7. geez says:

    Because they have 2 jacked up parents duh…

  8. lrm says:

    she actually is looking better these days-prettier and more herself, IMO.
    hope she lays off the face tweaking a bit.
    and while i’m sure child support is a factor ‘aka the money’-i also believe her when she says she didnt want to trash the girls in front of their dad.
    also, she wanted to get along with him in front of them,a nd her talkking about him with the media would not help her relationship with him.
    Yea, probably smart move, not to feed his live wire unpredictability, anyway….

  9. Kbomb says:

    I think they’re miserable because they look like him.

  10. amanda says:

    Is charlie sheen missing one of his teeth in that picture?

  11. Mitsey Martin says:

    Wonder if she will tap in to her Heidi Fleiss days and that is where she and Charlie met?

  12. jdao says:

    Dang, what happened to Charlie’s tooth?

  13. Sakyiwaa says:


  14. WillyNilly says:

    I’m with Mitsey Martin. Whole life, my ass…its well known that she was a call girl in between being a teen model and marrying Charlie.

  15. gee says:

    OMG his teeth!

  16. danielle says:

    I don’t know about psychopath or con artist…violent drug abuser, sure. Let’s stick to facts! Lol.

  17. mommyesq says:

    Good lord, that pic of Charlie is CLASSIC!!!! Apparently he’s “not winning” his teeth?!

  18. Oenix says:

    Denise no longer has to talk smack about Charlie because she no longer needs to. His behaviour validated what she’s been trying to say. She no longer has to wonder if it is her, it is HIM as he behaves the same regardless of the woman he’s with. She has grown since and that is why she is at a place in her life where she can “…remain really classy and probably more tight-lipped about the whole thing than she needed to be….”.

    And by the way, many of you seem to have issues with her past. What it is to you? It’s like she personally offended you by (IF) being a call-girl? What has that taken away from you?

    Ok. Off my high horses.

  19. courtney says:

    Oh please this cries of desperation big time. Charlie’s problems are repeating his father Martin’s cycle. has it ever occured to you people that Sam & Lola don’t like being photographed

  20. The Other Katherine says:

    When Denise started acting, before she and Sheen got together, I always thought she was a no-talent bimbo. I still think she has very little acting talent, but I have completely revised the “bimbo” opinion. Maybe her life choices have often been less than sterling, but she has worked very hard to maintain the relationship between her kids and their (BATSHIT CRAZY) father, while still watching out for the kids’ physical safety and not trashing their father in public interviews that the kids will no doubt read when they’ve grown up. She has demonstrated vastly more restraint in the face of Sheen’s disgusting shenanigans than I would ever be capable of. There *is* some strength of character going on there, regardless of how she’s made a living over the years.

  21. the original bellaluna says:

    I like her just a little bit more (she’s always bugged the bejeebers out of me) now that she’s mellowed and (kind of) disappeared from the public eye. Who knew it would take the very public implosion of her daughters’ father to make her take stock and do the right thing?

    I don’t know about how much of a “beautiful love story” with Charlie it will be, but I certainly hope it opens the eyes of young girls/women as to how easy it is to fall in love with someone who is a such a deceitful mess. (Having been involved with, had a child with, and nearly killed by a sociopath, I think the word “sociopath” describes him better.) More girls/women need to know the “modus operandi” of men who hit (and hate) women.

    I agree with the other posters who said she no longer needs to try to “force” the truth, because she’s been vindicated (so to speak) by the very public way he’s been behaving. Ain’t karma great?

  22. TXCinderella says:

    Charlie looks like a druggie and alcoholic. Dried up craggy face and missing teeth. All that’s missing is the scabby face. Ewwwwww.

  23. Lucy says:

    Jesus, Charlie is one hot mess!

  24. Claire says:

    When did it come out Denise had been a call girl?!? I missed that one!

  25. gg says:

    The girls have perfected their poutface – they probably are hating the whole deal. Watching their dad’s teeth fall out. Sad. This seems like opportunism on her part.
