Denise Richards: Preschool With The Twins

Exclusive... Denise Richards Takes Charlie's Sons To School

One of our favorite celebrity moms, Denise Richards, was all smiles with the kids in Los Angeles, Calif. on Thursday (May 23). Joined by her 9-year-old daughter Sam, the actress was seen dropping off the twins, 4-year-old Max and Bob, at preschool.

Denise’s daughters Lola, 7, and Eloise, 23 months, were not spotted with the group.

Our hats go off to Denise! In addition to being single mom to her three kids, the actress, 42, is temporarily caring for her ex-husband Charlie Sheen’s sons.

Charlie’s third ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, 35, checked herself into rehab on May 3 for “prescription drug abuse,” the same day sons Bob and Max were removed from her home by the L.A. County of Department of Children and Family Services due to an “unsafe environment.”

“You just figure it out because you don’t have a choice. You have these children depending on you,” Denise said 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.”

    I can’t applaud her enough!!! It takes a strong hearted woman to take on you ex husbands kids! Good for her!

    Those happy, carefree looks on Bob’s and Max’s faces speak volumes! Sam, on the other hand, clearly hates being photographed by the paparazzi. It must be so hard for the older kids and teens of celebrity parents who are constantly hounded by photographers. Most kids don’t want the spotlight–they just want to be anonymous.

    I wonder how it came about that Denise has the twins and NOT either of the 4 bio grandparents. Denise is no relation to the boys, so it seems weird that she has temp custody. Hmmm. Juster wondering. Have never heard how it all went down.

    Eighter way, she seems to be doing a FABULOUS job (so far) with her own, and it’s extremely gracious and motherly of her to take in her girls little brothers. Proud of her for being THE grown up in this pathetic situation. Never have thought too much of her for stabbing Heather Locklear in the back and marrying and reproducing with Charlie (YIKES on all sorts of levels), and figured it was solely for $$$$$, and that may be true, but at least she has shown that she’s more than just a pretty face. It’s gonna take a MIRACLE for ANY of she and Charlie’s kids to grow up to be happy, healthy, sober, productive and mentally sound adults! Hopefully Ms. Richards has what it takes, because Mr. Sheen and Ms. Mueller definately don’t.

      I think Denise getting the boys had something to do with being in the same location as their school, activities, etc. If I remember correctly, they were placed with her in the past temporarily so that they wouldn’t be uprooted from their activities and routine. I think both sets of grandparents live in other areas and it would be a big change to their life. Not to mention, Denise has their half sisters, so there is a family bond there between the children.

        The boys are with Denise because Charlie and Brooke have really strained relationships with their own parents, that’s why they left the boys with Denise in the past. The judge decided it was a good environment because the boys already knew her quite well. The boys look really happy, especially the one in Denise’s arms. They always look anxious on their outings with Brooke… My son is exactly the same age as Bob and Max and I feel really bad for them :(
