Denise Richards Turns to Momlogic

Momlogic has had plenty to say about one of the most buzz-worthy moms on TV. We thought it was time to hear it straight from the source. 


Denise Richards took time out to speak with momlogic about everything from her most embarrassing mom moment to mud-slinging with her ex, Charlie Sheen, in public...

Momlogic: What are your thoughts about getting even with your ex in public?
Denise Richards: I kept my mouth shut for 3 years until I started my TV show. I had no desire to speak badly about him in public, but in my situation, it got the point where I had to defend myself. He would release statements while I'm walking on live TV, and I had no choice. It's gotten to the point that it's affecting my livelihood. I wasn't saying things to trash him. I was defending myself from what he was saying. For him to tell people to boycott my show, is really awful. He doesn't realize it affects our kids. For him to release an email that wasn't true when I was trying to promote my show, I thought was very low. I was defending what he was doing. I didn't go out of my way to blast him. I never campaigned to boycott his show. I didn't go out of my way to bring him down. You can only take so much. I had to stick up for myself.

ML: What's the one thing about divorce that most surprised you?
DR: How ugly it got. How it just can't be amicable. I had never anticipated it getting this embarrassing and humiliating. I'll never go through another one.

ML: Does that mean you'll never get married again?
DR: I will get married again, but I'll never go through another divorce. I never expected it to be like this.

ML: How do you handle dating with your daughters?
DR: It's very hard. I don't introduce them to anyone unless it's very serious. They are too young, and I don't think it's healthy for them.

ML: What's your most embarrassing mom moment?
DR: Going through all of this is embarrassing--Taking my girls to pre-school and then going to Mommy and Me knowing people hear things and read things about me. Going through a public, ugly divorce is embarrassing.

ML: Do you think you're a good mom?
DR: I do. I'm very different than what my ex-husband has put out there. Ultimately the girls suffer for that. I'm with my girls almost 24 hours a day.

ML: Do you think Charlie is a good dad?
DR: I'm not with him when he's with the girls, so I cannot comment.

ML: If you could go back in time is there anything/any decisions you would have done differently?
DR: Obviously I don't regret marrying him, because I wouldn't have my two beautiful daughters. No. I have no regrets. As crazy as it all was, I've learned a lot. I regret how things where handled, but there are many times I say, "If only..."

ML: Are there any other rumors that have been written about you that you'd like to clear up?
DR: That I wanted my ex-husbands sperm. That's absurd. And it was absurd that he had to do what he did while I was on live television. I'm trying to promote a reality show. Let me promote my show. Instead, he had to make it about our divorce.

She Lies July 1, 2008, 5:08 PM

So truly demented how she thinks people don’t remember she was the one that released that court document to the public about Charlie. Ultimately it was proven that everything in there was wrong, but why does she keep lying about it? She gave a ton of interviews about Charlie over the past three years. She’s really so sick, but I think she really does believe all the things she makes up. I wish she would be honest with herself and what her true problems AAare and get help. Sad that this was the only photo you could find of her daughters and again they look so sad and miserable. Keep Denise in your prayers everyone. She really needs them.

I agree with the above….
1. All the way through this Q & A, you never hear DR speaking about how her daughters are cuting a tooth, or saying, “DaDa” you never hear her tell stories, about their outings and the kids do look sad…they look like they miss their father. How can you do this, Denise? All the way through the interview, she talks about herself, her show, her embarrassment, what about everybody else. What about what a “Home Wrecker” you are, what about your best friend, Heather and what you did to her?
Denise you are losing it! Losing popularity because of WHO YOU ARE AS A PERSON, stop being so vicious, to Charlie.
No one, cares….
Help, the homeless, talk about how you took your girls to the park, blow bubbles, take them to the beach.
Love them….don’t screw with their heads, that mind poisoning is against the law, you know.
Don’t you have to split $75K in lawyers fees…some people don’t even make that in 3 or 4 years….what is wrong with you?
You have done 21 movies on your own, you are not poor, you have good looks, but what is between the ears.
You need to show the public you can be a good friend.
Janet, Charlie’s mum, never once SAID SHE WAS A GOOD MOTHER. SHE JUST WAS.

Gold Digger, please stop trashing your daughters’ father.

As Dr.Phil would say:”We need a hero here..”.You are digging your own grave Denise R.Just shut up and YOUR dirty laundry will be clean for once.

I watch your reality tv show all the time I have two girls myself and I think your doing a beautifull job on raising your kids. I’m married and my husband is gone so much because he works in the oilfield so I’m home with the kids most of the time…. cudos I just thought we had a little something in common…

Boycott his show? His show is funny and actually has some entertainment value, unlike hers.
So far we’ve seen her get a spray tan, pretend to do most of the work hosting a bbq for her father, call a woman the C word, being “forced” by her father to give away enough shoes to support my household for a year….I haven’t seen any more episodes, her show is just silly. At least I watched before I judged. If it is picked up for another season, it could only be because she is boffing someone at the network.

jeeeez u people are viscous. denise is a great mom. she answers the same questions with the same answers — consistent. the site is about her being a mom — when someone asks you if youre a good mom you would probably talk about how you think youre a good mom. her kids are fine — shes fine — the show is funny and gets her point across — leave the woman alone my God youre like jealous 13 year old girls.

Who’s the vicious one? You guys are no better.

Chris July 2, 2008, 1:13 AM

I think that nobody has the right to say who did what. Nobody know what went on behind closed doors but them. Nobody on this panel should judge unless you were there and saw it yourself. I think that she is trying to make things better for her and her daughters and who can fault her for doing that.

jenniferS July 2, 2008, 8:41 AM

I think she’s great. For whatever reason, people side with Charlie, but he’s the one with the history of hookers and drugs.

Cathy July 2, 2008, 2:02 PM

She is a horrible person. The more I hear about her the more I can not believe this woman.

Melanie July 2, 2008, 2:37 PM

WoW I think it’s sad that you all are judging someone that none of us know except for what we see on tv, interviews and tabloids. Grow up and stop judging. you all weren’t involved in their marriage or sit on the sidelines of this. Neither of them are in the wrong or right. Hopefully they will figure out that all that matters are your children.
Please stop sitting on your fat butts and read a book!

She is a horror, a terrible role model and mother. I just saw a clip of her show IT’S CONSTIPATED where she autographs a copy of her nude issue in PLAYBOY for her 13 year old nephew, so he can sell it to his 13 year old friend. This is who wants to be touted as a good mother??? Last I check you have to be over the age of 18 to be in possession of Playboy, and don’t start with all boys look at it. That maybe so, that an entirely different thing than promoting it to 13 year old boys. I’m with Charlie Sheen. Boycott this show, boycott the advertisers of the show. Hit them where they live at E! Entertainment. This is so wrong.

QueenBee July 3, 2008, 12:37 AM

The Playboy in question was brought over to her nephews house by a friend who stole it from his dad. He was trying to force her nephew to look at it and he refused to. Denise caught them and sent his friends home and had a talk with her nephew about how he felt about the situation and explained to him her reason for doing it. She was really embarrassed. In the end it became sorta a joke.
Also, I guess I missed the boat when Charlie is now the good awesome guy. Wasn’t he the same person that was addicted to prostitutes and porn? Wasn’t he the same person that called the mother of his children a “f-ing c***” and the n-word? Gee, he sure sounds great to me. The guy is an arrogant jerk. He will never change.
Denise seems to truly love her kids and she really does what she can to protect them. If her methods seemed whacko to you then its your problem. She doesn’t have to answer to you. I’m sure that everyone of us has a parenting skill someone else thinks is whacko.
At least she hasnt drove in the car with her baby on her lap………it could always be worse.

I think she’s a good mom. Charlie is the one who keeps trashing her, even on his wedding day. He talks about her to much. His show is worse than hers, nobody ever brings up the fact that a 14 yr old boy is a main character on a show that’s full of meaningless sex, excessive drinking and gambling..all things listed in their divorce decree. I think on Charlie’s show they need to have an episode where Charlie is diagnosed with 3 types of V.D. and has court orders to pay numerous women child support. He’s a huge D**K!!!

There are a lot of strange comments on here.

An interesting dialogue is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this matter, it won’t be a taboo topic however generally individuals are not sufficient to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers March 30, 2011, 9:41 PM
