Charlie Sheen makes Denise Richards sad

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."

    Here's the thing. It is a well known fact that Charlie Sheen has had his share of troubles since October. And since that time Richards has done many interviews on the subject.The thing that strikes me about the interviews she has done is that I dont think she can decided if she wants to support him or not,which is something that would cause a problem in any relationship.If in fact she wants to offer support to him, then she is going to haft to do it all the time and not only when it makes her look good.The fact of it Sheen more than likely doesnt need or want her help.I agree with what alot of people say she needs to move on with life.Maybe she feels guilty over something.

    And why I confess I didn't bother to read this article because she is just LOOKING FOR PUBLICITY for her failing career!

    Why is she dealing with all of this negative publicity surrounding her ex-husband and fearful of the effect it may have on her young daughters, again? Oh, yeah...because she calls the tabloids every time she leaves her house! Charlie Sheen is crazy as a monkey on acid, but he's right about this trick – she really IS a B*I*T*C*H! He was nuts when she had the first kid, but she got herself knocked up again as a swan song to double her child support payments. Why have babies with a man YOU described as an abusive addict, knowing you have no intention of staying in the relationship? Get a job and take care of your kids, 'ho. You are famous for sleeping with a famous man. Period.

    Can someone please explain to me why Americans are paying their hard earned money to go watch a druggie millionare do a stand up show? I just don't get it. He has no stand up comedic or acting talent? Then they sit their and take about how F up her is after they pay hundres of dollars and drive to his show?????

    I think the American public is more F up,. dumber, and has more problems than Charlie Sheen does. At least with hm we know his motivatoin MONEY AND FAME –What is the publics excuse-stupidity?????????????

    How is the ex fixing the problem when she just entered rehab for about the umpteen time! Richard should keep her nose out of the ex business. She sounds like if Sheen were to be totally sober she would take him back. She got a huge amount of money in their settlement plus 55k per month to take care of her kids. That is insane but that is what he set up. These kids out in Hollywood need to grow up! They live in a fantasy world with lots of money and sadness!

    My advise to Denise is to get full custody of the girls and keep them as far away from Charlie until if ever he get clean.
    The children should be her first concern and not a hollywood type divorce where everyone is friends and co mingle. Rsponsibility in real lifeivisn't a freak show like what involves Charlie and his exs & kids..
    Kids in Holly wood have so many ex step Moms Dads sisters & brothers it must be confusing. Try do..
    How many times have they been in rehab and it hasn't stopped thier behavior..
    Sometimea a sel proclained winner is a loser and you just have to accept it..
    this seem to be true for them.
    The twin boys I hope are with someone responsible. I hope they are not added to the messed up kids like Brittany Lindsy and the rest with too much $$ and too little parental guidence .
    That is the real epidenic in tinsel town.

    Denise: keep the girls away from him-and get him out of their life. He is dangerous and not stable to be with the girls. I think he had a psychotic break from the cocaine binges-even if his drug tests are clean he is no longert way. i think one day when/if he binges again (I think he will) he will probably overdose..he is a.lot like Anna Nicole Smith-no one can help now.

      Could it be that your jealous? I think so.

      Why on earth would she be obsessed with him? Look at him. He looks terrible. Years of coke use have damaged his body and he just looks ill. Perhaps she's offering help t his ex because she cares. He's still father to her children and because of it, she has to deal with him. It's going to benefit HER to be a stabilizing force.

      Are you serious Sheri? What in that article is nothing but Denise showing concern for her kids and their "half" siblings? She does have the right and a reason to show interest if for the kids alone. If the kids didn't exist THEN yeah – I'd agree she should mind her own business...but that's not the case. As long as what she says in the article is for real and not a publicity grab...she is actually maturely and as a concerned the only people that are messed up are folks with your mindset.

She may not be "in love" with him, but she may still love him. Big difference!!! When you grow up and become a big girl you’ll learn the difference.

      Ben, she probably burned Charlie really bad and now karma is biting her in the rear end. It is not HE who can't shake her, but it is the other way around. And I bet you any amount of money, she is a co-dependent person on him... thus, playing a big part to his troubles. She could even be using the kids against him just to get her way.

      I do not like Denise Richards at all. She has done some pretty foul things in her life and I have zero respect for her.

      How ridiculous. She's obsessed with him? Right. And who was the one supposedly telling his "goddesses" that he wishes he could cut all of Richards' hair off?

      This woman blows Mueller and goddesses out of the water – she's absolutely beautiful. And he screwed up and knows it. He's the one who insisted on having a gun underneath the living room table and threatened to kill their dogs and was doing coke and acting crazy. If he'd had his act together, they would probably still be together.

      As to the Locklear/Sambora affair, it takes two. Not one. That marriage was obviously over with.

      "she's not over him" That statement alone shows that you are indeed a man! You think because a woman shows kindness and compassion for her ex-husband she's not over him. That's how men think, that's not how women think. She is thinking about the innocent kids who are half brothers to her daughters. Charlie’s kids may not be related to her, but they are related to her daughters. It is her daughters' feelings and their pain that she is concerned about. The way her daughters' father behaves and carries himself affects her daughters and by association affects her. If she is seen trashing the father of her daughters, it’s in a way trashing her girls. Male egos wow get over yourself!

    I have so much admiration for Denise. THIS is how mature, compassionate people behave in their lives. I hope she can help Brooke stay clean. Denise is really the true goddess!

      Hmmmm, I don't know. She's got some of the most beautiful...and wildest eyes I ever saw. She just sounds a little too silver-tongued sometimes. I wonder how much she's responsible for him being jacked up, and if she isn't still jacking with him now through the media.

      Charlie Sheen makes EVERYBODY sad....Denise must protect her daughters at all costs, saving them from Charlie's sicko booze/drug/bimboo addictions.
