Brooke Mueller has a hissy fit over Denise Richards’ superior gift bag

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about exes Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards hating each other. Is the war over? Or is it now just a Cold War, based on coolly one-upping each other? Or does everybody get along now, for the sake of the kids? I don’t know. But if Gatecrasher’s little story is any indication, perhaps “the Cold War” theory might be right on.

Apparently, Charlie’s current wife Brooke and Denise Richards both turned up at the same gifting suite at the Emmys. Not at the same time, thankfully. Denise was there first, and Brooke came in after. While Denise was able to leave with a fabulous diamond-and-gold necklace, Brooke pitched a fit when she was denied the same one. Brooke was even overheard bitching about how Denise had gotten one. Note – Gatecrasher refers to Denise as Charlie’s first wife, but she was actually Charlie’s second wife. Brooke Mueller is his third wife:

Brooke Mueller may be Charlie Sheen’s second wife, but that doesn’t mean she has to accept second best.

Mrs. Sheen 2.0 threw a fit at Kari Feinstein’s Emmy Awards gifting suite over the weekend when she was denied her request of a diamond-and-gold Hershey’s Kiss necklace – and offered silver instead. “I know [Charlie’s first wife] Denise Richards was here earlier, and she has a diamond necklace,” the furious Mueller sniffed. After being told that reality star Richards did, indeed, have the bling in her possession, Mueller sniped: “She’s going down!”

Be fair, Brooke. You did get the man, after all.

Meanwhile, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher revealed their affinity for swag on Friday, when they sent their assistant to grab gifts for them at the Suite Life at Skybar L.A.

The P.A. wound up picking out nearly $3,400 worth of gear for her bosses. Says one onlooker, “The poor girl could barely walk, she was so laden down with bags!”

A rep for Moore insists the gifting suite offered to send the items and that “the bag and its contents were hardly worth thousands of dollars.”

Mueller’s rep also denies the claims.

I don’t really doubt that there’s still some anger, resentment, bitterness and nastiness between the Charlie Sheen-Brooke Mueller household and Denise Richards, but even I think this story is a little weird. I mean, to get pissy about a free necklace? Really? And here’s another question – why would Denise be considered more worthy of a necklace than Brooke? Brooke was actually the wife of an Emmy nominee. What was Denise doing there? I’m really asking, I’m not trying to be mean. I actually like both Charlie and Denise. They don’t seem like good people, necessarily, but they both seem like they would be a lot of fun at a party.

    not that I got any love for Richards, but she DOES have her own show, and she’s been in a few movies. Not to mention that previously, she’d been a model with bit parts in various TV shows.

    so, IMO, she’s got more of a right to be there than Mueller, who simply married a celebrity after a career in real estate.

  2. bros says:

    thats exactly what I was going to say St. Angie. I fully agree. mueller should be happy she was even allowed near the swag.

  3. Tamara K says:

    I think it’s ridiculous that celebrities are given gift bags and swag for free. People who well afford the items.

  4. Sigh. says:

    Not a Richards fan, but I have to agree — by the broadest definifiton, she is an ACTRESS, and Mrs. Sheen 3.0 is not. And she has/had a TV show, 3.0 does/did not.

    Richards has said that she gets along with 3.0 now (shortly b4 or after the twins birth?), so IF Mueller said “She’s going down,” it may have been in jest and the “sources” don’t know her or her humor and was waiting for some celebrity to pitch a fit.

    And I’m sure if she really wanted a cutesy “Kiss” necklace, her husband can get his hands on one.

  5. QB says:

    How did she knows that Denise got the necklace if she arrived later than her?? Unless the vendor told her and I doubt that the vendor would have not give it to Charlee for his wife if she really wanted it that bad.

  6. Sassy says:

    She’s being so petty. She needs to act her age. After all, SHE is the one with the man, not Denise. And SHE is not the one having to deal with Charlie’s wrath.

  7. Kaiser says:

    Angie, Bros & Sigh – Yeah, I can see your point… I guess I was just thinking “Why would Denise be at the Emmys?” She wasn’t a presenter & her reality show wasn’t up for anything.

    I actually like Denise, but she’s not even B-List anymore – and I tend to think Brooke is more likely to molly-coddled by celebrity gifters because of who she’s married to.

    Meh. It’s probably a fake story anyway.

  8. LolaBella says:

    This story sounds too contrived to be real.

    I do have to say that reading the part where Brooke supposedly says ‘she’s going down’ made me snicker! It sounds like something out of one of those stupid cheerleader movies with the rivalry between the captain of the squad and the new upstart arrival.

    *SPOILER ALERT – I think I just revealed the plot to all of the Bring It On movies*

  9. princess pea says:

    Grr Demi Moore. If you want all the free stuff, the least you could do is go get it yourself.

    Actually, one wonders about the PA’s credentials… could I just walk into one of these suites and SAY I was picking up swag for my “employer”? This could be a lucrative scheme.

  10. Firestarter says:

    ITA St.Angie.

    It really frosts my cookies that these celebs like Moore etc.. are so damn greedy for swag. As another poster said, they are the ones that can afford the stuff, yet they get everything for free. The rest of us have to save, pray for a good sale or do without, yet those that have the bucks not only get to keep their bucks, but get the goodies for nothing.

    Am I jealous? HELL YES!

  11. Cinderella says:

    This story sounds a little stretched. If Brooke wanted to buy a diamond necklace for every day of the year, she could with his salary.

    As far as saying Denise is going down, sounds like she was just joking.

  12. Catherine says:

    This story sounds suspect. Brooke can get her own damn necklace.

  13. Praise St. Angie! says:

    hey Kaiser!

    to be fair, if only presenters and nominees showed up for awards ceremonies, the place would be less than half full.

    so her showing up isn’t so strange…I’d bet there were lots of celebs there who weren’t presenting or nominated.

    and you’re right, it probably is fake.

  14. Sigh. says:

    Kaiser —
    I agree with you that Richards is B-List actress at best.

    I think the world is more familiar with her work in her roles as Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife and the woman who hooked up w/ Richie Sambora fresh off of her “friend” Heather Locklear.

    And didn’t she kiss some chick in a movie way back when that wasn’t so contrived and typical like now?

  15. Birdie says:

    The moore I read about Demi and Ashton the moore I really dislike them.

  16. Heidi Ho says:

    I worked at one of these pre-emmy swag parties a few years ago. It’s mostly for the companies to use “celebs”, and I use that term loosely, to promote their products.

    The “celebs” (lots of soap & reality stars, and once in a while an actual movie actor) are the advertisement.

    The parties are actually not very much fun, to tell you the truth.

  17. moo says:

    I agree with Firestarter. They make enough money to buy those items…

  18. j. ferber says:

    The point is, swag is just one more entitlement/ego-enhancer for “stars” (because Demi and Ashton are certainly not actors–at least not good ones). It is disgusting, to call a spade a spade. And how in the world do the manufacturers know the stars will be seen wearing their goodies? Stars may give stuff to assistants, relatives, groupies, etc. I bet it doesn’t even make good business sense for the companies. And yes, I’d like to see swag in my line of work (teaching), but I’m lucky to get paper and books, so I should just shut up.

  19. Yae says:


    Just a quick thanks for teaching our kids. More teachers need some “swag” for putting up with my kid’s crap. 🙂

  20. Hieronymus Grex says:

    and who is she? Other than the bang du-jour for Charlie Sheen ?

  21. Linda says:

    I am aretailer and I carry the adorable “Kiss” pendant and let me tell you..I cannot keep them in stock! I wear the diamond one around my neck and I have sold several right off my neck. As far as the story being contrived..There is a picture of Denise Richards on the back of the “Kiss” catalogue wearing the diamond kiss so I’m sure Charlie’s current ho must have seen it.I also heard from people that were there that Brooke was very nasty when the “Kiss” people denied her request for the diamond Kiss. How about a thank you?..she is an unknown piece of crap and is lucky she got anything!

  22. TinaWithPom says:

    Hmmm, so let me get this straight. Technically, if I’m an award nominee, and I bring my husband, my children, heck, my entire clan of relatives by the truckload, chances are that each of them will be able to get away with at least one piece of swag from these gifting suites?

    *just joking*

  23. DrM says:

    Conspicuous consumption anyone? Who needs all that rubbish anyway? I would not want to be the equivalent of a human advertisement…Denise, Demi, Brooke, Ashton and Charlie et all can keep it…
