Charlie Sheen's "Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour has caused people to laugh, jeer and hand him stuffed tigers as gifts, but the actor's ex Denise Richards says his multi-city performance just makes her sad.
"Honestly, for me it’s very sad to see him on this path," she told Bravo's Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live" Thursday. "I’ve heard he’s chosen to use me in part of his tour and that’s hurtful but that’s his choice...I think there’s places you shouldn’t go but he chooses to and that’s his choice."
It looks like that's not all Richards - who has daughters Sam, 6, and Lola, 5, with the actor - doesn't see eye-to-eye with Sheen on.
"We’re not in the best place right now to be honest, but I do still communicate with him," she said. "Again, this is his lifestyle, and I’ve accepted it. [But] there are things that I don’t think are the most appropriate for two young impressionable daughters." So while Richards has met Sheen's "goddesses," her daughters have not.
"It makes me sad to see him on a very wonderful, well-written hugely popular show [and then] go down this path," Richards added, saying that she doesn't know if he's currently sober or not.
Regardless of what she thinks of his lifestyle, Richards is still happy to help him and his estranged wife Brooke Mueller should they need it, even reportedly offering to take care of the couple's twin two-year-old boys.
"I wasn’t asking for custody or anything like that, but I’ve put it out there several times over the last couple years that if they need help, I’m here," she told Cohen. "I would love for the boys to stay and be with the girls. Whatever they needed, I was definitely offering."
That helping hand extends to Mueller as well. "I haven’t spoken to [Brooke] since she’s checked in [to rehab]," Richards revealed, "but I will when she’s available. I give Brooke a lot of credit that she’s….trying to fix the issue."
