Well, that’s nice. Denise Richards may be looking after Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller‘s kids while they’re both too busy snorting coke lines off of public restroom toilet seats and being colossal fuck-ups instead of being parents, but she’s really only doing it because there’s no one else and, you know, she’s got a heart.
From US Weekly:
“You just figure it out because you don’t have a choice. You have these children depending on you,” she explained to Us of how she manages. “You prioritize. I had children because I want to be a parent, and I want to be there for them.”
“I think my biggest challenge is [that] their different activities sometimes overlap,” she added, noting that she tries to attend everything. “I have a good schedule going. You just manage.”
“My situation with Charlie is that we’ve gotten along for quite some time now, and it’s so much better,” she told Us. “There are a lot of feelings and emotions there, but at the end of the day, our daughters benefit from us getting along, and [I do], too.”
“I don’t want to have an unhealthy relationship with him, something toxic with a lot of animosity. Life’s too short for that,” she continued. “We actually enjoy hanging out, and we enjoy being with the kids.”
Huh, well, I guess I’ve gotta hand it to Denise Richards – raising your own kids isn’t easy, but taking on your ex’s when you’re not even together anymore? Danger zone, girl. I wonder if Bob and Max – Mueller’s kids – are ever like, “Yo Denise, where the hell are our parents?” Probably not, but they have to wonder why they’re staying with her.
