A united front. Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen have had so many ups and downs, I’ve lost count. But during her time on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Denise presented their relationship as mostly harmonious. After she left the show, things seemed to go downhill when it came to Denise’s relationship with both Charlie and their daughter, Sami Sheen.
In September 2021, Sami took to social media and said she was “trapped in an abusive household.” She moved out of Denise’s house and in with Charlie. A few months later, Denise admitted that their relationship was “strained.” She shared, “Obviously I would love for her to live with me. She lived with me all these years.” Denise continued, “But I think it’s very difficult raising teenagers now and especially in Los Angeles when there’s access to everything. There are certain rules and I enforce them. And [at Charlie’s], there’s different rules at that house and that’s okay.”
Different rules and parenting philosophies it seems. Denise and Sami have since reunited but the recent news that Sami joined OnlyFans had Charlie and Denise split with regards to supporting her. As reported by E! News, Charlie said that he doesn’t “condone” Sami’s decision to join the adult themed website “but since I’m unable to prevent it, I urged her to keep it classy, creative and not sacrifice her integrity.” He then went on to blame Denise and said of Sami, “She is 18 years old now and living with her mother. This did not occur under my roof.”
This was a stark contrast to Denise’s take, where she wholeheartedly supported Sami. But it sounds like Charlie had some time to reflect and provided a new statement agreed with Denise. He explained that Denise “has illuminated a variety of salient points, that in my haste, I overlooked and dismissed.” He concluded, “Now more than ever, it’s essential that Sami have a united parental front to rely upon, as she embarks on this new adventure. From this moment forward, she’ll have it abundantly.”
After receiving plenty of hate, Denise took to her Instagram to praise Sami. Denise posted, “Lots of negative comments on my social this past week. I have to say, I wish I had the confidence my 18 yr old daughter has.” She continued that she “can’t be judgmental of her choices” and “quite frankly her father shouldn’t be either.”
Denise went on, “And to be able to ignore the negativity at her age? It took me many years & I still sometimes struggle. “I’m in awe of her ability to be able to shut out the noise. Because it can destroy you.” Denise mused, “Is there really a difference posting a picture of yourself in a bikini on IG? We’ve all done it. Because you get paid on Only Fans? I’m pretty sure IG & Twitter & Facebook do quite well off of all of us. Is it so bad to control it & monetize it too?”
We all know how much Denise loves her kids and she finished her post in true Mama Bear fashion. Denise surmised, “I’m sorry, but s–t if I can get paid and at my age? To see me in a bikini?!? God bless you. Perhaps I should open my own account. Oh & those of you that are so judgmental… sounds like you might already subscribe to an @onlyfans account. Have a great weekend.”
