Denise Richards must seriously have ice water in her veins. After ex Charlie Sheen trashed a hotel room last fall, had to be rescued from a porn star party and then shut down production of shut down the production of Two And A Half Men the very show that helps feed her kids, all we would want to do is bury our head in Joy Behar‘s comforting bosom and weep for days. Instead, today Denise Richards co-hosted The View, talking about Sheen’s addiction in the even, steady voice of a woman reporting the weather. When asked if she was surprised by her ex’s erratic actions, Richards replied, “No, I mean it doesn’t. I mean, you know this is Charlie’s lifestyle. He makes no bones about it…and it is what it is.” Spoken like a woman who’s seen things few people have lived to talk about.
Not that Denise is kicking back and letting porn stars babysit her kids or anything. “This has been something I have dealt with for years,” Richards explained. “This is not a new situation.” She cited resources which she uses to help her daughters explain Sheen’s drug and alcohol problem. “One in particular, I’m blanking on the title, it explains addiction to children. There are images and pictures that a child can understand. I don’t know what they fully comprehend from these conversations. They don’t know what some of these things are. So I do the best I can and it’s not easy.” So no other filthy gossip about the Two And A Half Men star? No insane tales it would give you dark joy to reveal to the world the world? “I think that you should have him on the show and get into detail what’s going on,” Denise says before clamming up. That woman must have some sort of ninja training to have such a steady hand. Either that, or an excellent PR person.
