Denise Richards denies longstanding rumors that she was a hooker for Heidi Fleiss

Denise Richards is earning money the Stacy Keibler way, by throwing us a tidbit of information in exchange for a plug for a product or service she’s endorsing. We just saw Denise posing in staged candid photos plugging kitty litter (they’re here, I hope she got paid for that) and now she’s trying to sell us on a workout called Physique 57. In a new interview with ET Denise talked about her famous ex, Charlie Sheen, and the “craziest rumor” that’s been floated about her, that she was a hooker working for Heidi Fleiss when she met Charlie Sheen. It’s well established that Charlie was one of Fleiss’ best customers, and that his addiction to hiring hookers and trying to legitimize them by moving them in continues to this day. So it’s not so much of a stretch to assume that this is how he met Denise too, but she assures us it’s not. I’ve heard these rumors for a while, and I guess she denied them last year too, but this is the first time I’ve paid attention to it.

On rumors that she’s been a hooker
The craziest rumor that’s ever been written about me is that I was a prostitute for Heidi Fleiss. I think my ex-husband [Charlie Sheen] would vouch for me, and Heidi I’m sure would too, that I was not. I’ve never been a hooker.

On her relationship with her ex, Charlie Sheen
We went through a lot, but it takes two people to make that commitment and make it about the kids. If we can do it and get to the other side and… have a great relationship for our kids. I think anyone can get there if we were able to.

On saying that she and Charlie are like brother and sister
I probably shouldn’t have said that… it sounded a little creepy. What I meant was we’re in a good place and we get along.

[From Entertainment Tonight]

Well Denise has to talk about something to get our interest, and this worked. It’s got to be hard to deal with seeing your ex husband give multiple nonsensical interviews with the two 20 year-old porn stars he moved into his house, but she handled it all with more grace than I could ever show in that situation.

Charlie and Denise were seen attending their daughter soccer game together on Monday and they looked very peaceful and happy. (Apart from the fact that Charlie forgot to put his teeth in.) Denise is pushing her adopted baby daughter, Eloise, in a stroller. People have floated the theory that Eloise is actually Charlie Sheen’s daughter from another woman, and was given up to Denise to raise. The baby does look like him, so I wouldn’t be surprised.

    I believe it. Plus, she doesn’t say “We actually met through so and so…” so it’s kinda left open-ended. Side note: I think Heidi Fleiss is awesome. Really messed up, but man, I’d love to sit down for a drink with that woman and just listen!

    • Maguita says:

      Add Courtney Love to the mix, and I’m in. Both these wounded women are effed up, but come up with the most gregarious and explicit words form the English language ever!

      Today is International Women’s Day. Let’s put Denise’s past behind, and admit that she had quite spectacularly handled Charlie Sheen after their divorce. And by way of prostitutes, let us also be honest, and admit that some women, who hold the job of paid-for escort, have so much more integrity and class than those bland wannabes giving it up left and right in return for some power and media coverage. Hello Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.

      Now tell me, who looks more the hooker to you: Denise or Kim and Ebola Hilton?

      • Lisa says:

        I’ll join both of you with both Courtney and Heidi for drinks…just FASCINATINGLY INSANE!!!

      • Maguita says:

        Somehow, I don’t think we’ll be having “drinks”… But hey, I am sure it’ll be supremely fun, and I hope I’ll be able to remember it all one day! 😀

  2. normades says:

    I wonder how many kids this guy really has.

  3. Ogechi says:

    I actually like the close bond she has with her daughter.

  4. Maripily says:

    Well, I don’t know any woman that would admit to meeting their hubby like that! I doubt it’s true, though. I don’t care for Charlie Sheen at all, but it’s good to see them all getting along.

  5. bondbabe says:

    I don’t care. I give the woman HUGE props for her grace during the whole Charlie/porn star/WINNING debacle.

  6. BK says:

    I think it sucks that people spread malicious garbage like this. There’s just no need for it.

    She’s a single mother trying to do the best she can with what she has, regardless of any past bad decisions (sheen).

    Why do people feel the need to attack her like this? And why would CeleB think this is in any way newsworthy?

  7. Grandizer says:

    Well, she never says she was not an ESCORT…
    I would believe that first.
    And I bet she would be the type of person to make that distinction.
    As would Heidi Fleiss…

  8. Happymom says:

    I’ve said it from the beginning: that baby is his! If only Brooke Mueller would give her twins to Denise to raise too.

    • Laurabb says:

      I never thought that the baby could be his, but know I’m so curious about how this may be true.

  9. Roma says:

    I just can’t get over how attached Denise was when they first split up… I have much more respect for her than I ever used to.

  10. brin says:

    They need to all live together (remember when Charlie wanted his hookers & wives to all live together) and have a reality tv show.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Oh, brin, why would you wish that upon us? Don’t you love us anymore? 😉

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        Imagine the amount of stories THAT would get on here. That’s like a jackpot of gossip.

        I thought it was established that she was one of Heidi’s girls?
        And yes, she has handled her ex-spouse’s tornado of crazy amazingly well.

  11. littlestar says:

    I’m going to admit it, but I’ve always liked Denise Richards. Sure, she may be a bit trashy at times, but she seems like an authentic, kind person to me. Always has. Everytime I see her in interviews, I think she is someone who I could easily be friends with. And if the rumour is true, good for her for raising Charlie’s daughter as her own.

  12. Shelly says:

    I like Denise, and I believe her. That rumor is ridiculous!

  13. Talie says:

    I read about the Heidi Fleiss thing with Denise on Lainey years ago…I don’t know what to believe.

  14. Violet says:

    Yep, the Heidi Fleiss rumor has been floating around for years and I’ve always thought it rang true.

    I don’t think that Eloise is Charlie Sheen’s daughter, though. If she was, I’m sure he’d be happy to acknowledge paternity.

  15. Relli says:

    I have always believed that Denise is a stabilizing force in Charlie’s life. NO i haven’t always been her biggest fan, but i felt so deeply for her when Brooke & Charlie were trashing her and trying to make her seem crazy/desperate. She stood her ground and fought for her kids, RESPECT. The baby probably is Charlie’s with some young porn star or escort, perhaps after Brooke’s shenanigans he realized that of all the mistakes he has made Denise is the best decision he ever made.

  16. skuddles says:

    Well true or not, what woman in her right mind would admit to that??

  17. Julie says:

    A girl like Denise Richards doesn’t have to do anything for $$$ but sit there and look pretty ;-)! She was exquisite, still is. No way was she a hooker.
    Furthermore, as evidenced on her reality show, she has a great relationship with her dad. Generally speaking, girls with loving fathers don’t become prostitutes.

  18. the original bellaluna says:

    While it wouldn’t surprise me, as this seems to be a recurring theme with her, I would hope it’s untrue.

  19. JD says:

    Seems like if it was true, someone would have come up with proof.
    In this day, with the internet, nothing can stay hidden or secret for long, it seems.

  20. cowbulls says:

    I just don’t see the timeline working for the “Denise was a hooker when she met Sheen” theories. Denise was on TV starting in 1991 with Married with Children, Saved By the Bell, and various other sitcoms and assorted television shows. She had her first bit part movie in Loaded Weapon 1 in 1993. She married Sheen in 2002. If she was working as a hooker after all the TV and movie work, somebody would have had video and pictures by now. Now way a single guy keeps quiet about having sex with one of the sexiest women in the past 25 years who also happens to be famous.

  21. judyK says:

    Charlie doesn’t marry the hookers.All his wives have been ex actresses or wanna be actresses but none are hookers. He may like to sport them around townnand show off the latest hookers but he won’t marry them and have kids with them. In fac t Brooke is as is close as he has come to marrying a tramp. Except for the kids Brooke is the worst thing he ever did. Denis is not a drunk or a druggie and neither is the woman he had his oldest daughter with. I hope he stays away from Brooke she is a lifer for the drugs and a user. SHe had those kids to make sure she had lot of money after she set him up. She will go on to OD or marry another man with money andpop more kids and then repeat the same thing she did with Sheen.

  22. Kelly says:

    I really like Denise and she is so pretty! Wish she was in more movies!

  23. impppy says:

    I really hope Charlie gets better soon, I miss good Charlie and he actually looks really sweet her with his girls and ex wife. Like he may actually be appreciating them now. I hope so. Good luck to both of them!
