Denise Richards Opens Up To Oprah About Charlie Sheen


Denise Richards sat down with Oprah Winfrey to talk about her ex-husband, Charlie Sheen, and their daughters, Sam, who’s five, and Lola, who’s four. Denise told Oprah that Charlie called her from jail on Christmas because he didn’t want the day to go by without talking to his daughters.

It’s sad. It’s a sad situation. … Their dad was in jail on Christmas,” Richards says.

She also said the girls learned that Charlie was in jail from another child in their kindergarten class. One of Sam’s classmates told Sam she’d heard her father was in jail and wondered if he was still there, according to People. Ouch.

Denise also told Oprah that she considered her relationship with Charlie abusive, saying he was verbally abusive and that he pushed and shoved her but did not hit her (which is why she sought an order of protection).

“…Charlie has a very sharp tongue. … He played on my insecurities.”

Denise said she and Charlie are now “in a good place,” thanks to their work with a mediator.

Although I think Denise’s timing is rather awkward (it just feels a little like she’s taking the opportunity to get some publicity for herself), I don’t doubt her truthfulness.

Charlie seems like a guy who has a lot of issues to work through. Hopefully he’ll do that, for the sake of his children, if no one else.

    I think she’s finally talking about it because there is now more proof that Charlie is the insane one, not Denise. At the time, everyone thought Denise was out of her mind crazy so she just kept quiet about everything cause everyone thought she was nuts and Charlie was the perfect one. But now we all know it’s him and she is free to talk about it. I don’t blame her. I think he wronged her in a bad way and she is justified in trying to redeem herself.

    I don’t think you will find many people who have ever thought Charlie Sheen was perfect, or blameless in his flailing marriages. Everyone pretty much knows by now what kind of person he really is, yet somehow he manages to find women to marry him.

    This is the only way this woman can be on the press because she’s not making movies or doing anything, so basically she’s known for being Charlie’s ex. Her reality show was very bad, so no interest in her at all.

    She is crazy. Certifiable. Why would anyone go on a national talk show to talk about someone elses marriage problems unless they are a true narssacist? Really her kids heard about it from a child at school? The kids weren’t in school, it was Christmas vacation. He was arrested on Christmas Day. Do I doubt the validity of her story, you bet I do. She goes from saying he is abusive porno loving greak, to asking for his sperm, to throwing computers on old ladies heads, to saying he’s a good Dad. Were not buying it Denise. Get help for yourself.

    What kind of a woman bashes the father of her daughter on TV, ten years after the fact, and ten years it was actually talked about. She is finished and really hoped she enjoyed seeing herself on TV again, because that woman is finished. He is the highest paid actor on TV today and granted no angel, but she is far from an angel herself. She goes on record saying she cares what her kids hear and it might affect them later on in life. I can’t wait till she explains to them the merit of taking her clothes off for money. Somebody up her dosage.

    you know what is sad…not the part about the kid being asked if her dad was still in jail….it is the part where DR acts as if she were living in a paper bag under a rock when SHE decided to marry and have kids with CS. it is public knowledge of CS ways….please is there anyone reading this who knows what they know about the man who would ever want to have his kids? yet DR acts as if she is a victim because her magical vagina did not somehow make him a better man? a dog is a dog. why is she surprised at anything that happens. she should be sad at herself for picking that type of man to have children with.
