Denise Richards Explains Charlie Sheen's Behavior To Her Daughters

It’s no secret that Denise Richards‘ ex Charlie Sheen has had his share of troubles lately. Now the mom-of-three – who has daughters Sam, 7, and Lola, 6, with Charlie and recently adopted a baby girl named Eloise – says her older girls needed to know what was causing the erratic behavior of their father. She decided to educate them on the dangers of addiction.

“I got a book to read to them,” Denise said. “I was just lying to them about so much, and covering up things and totally lying. It was just getting too confusing that I had to sit down with them.”

“It’s too early for them to understand. I told them enough for them to make sense of things that were going on.”

Denise also insisted that Charlie’s recent behaviour – which has included alleged drink and drug binges and moving two porn star girlfriends into his home – is not typical of him and says she believes he will soon get back on track.

In a recent interview with Matt Lauer, Denise insisted that Charlie’s very-public meltdown was not typical of the person she was once married to. “The man I fell in love with is very compassionate, humble, has a wonderful heart and the behavior that a lot of us saw in the last six months is not the person I met and fell in love with.

“Do I worry about him? Of course. He’s the father of our children. [But] he’s also a survivor. If anyone can pull themselves together, it’s Charlie.”

The actress also spoke about the new addition to her family, admitting her elder daughters are enjoying helping care for Eloise.

She added: “They are so excited and feel so blessed. They love feeding her and changing her. We’re very happy.”

    To say “…the behavior that a lot of us saw in the last six months is not the person I met and fell in love with..” is delusional. His *lifelong* behavior is well-documented. This last stint in rehab was his fourth, not his first. He has a long history of violent behavior, trouble with the law and drugs. This did not *just* start in the past 6 months.

    I understand she has to convince herself of these things so that she can feel better. But the reality is that she chose to make children with this psycho knowing full-well exactly who he was and now I guess is having a hard time defending that.
