It's not easy being the mother two children whose father makes news every other week for going on porn-star themed benders.
But such is the life of Denise Richards, who spoke to Access Hollywood yesterday about Charlie Sheen and his recent antics.
"I think a lot of people are concerned about Charlie... what becomes difficult is things become so public. I try my best to keep that quiet from our daughters because, you know, this is something I've never dealt with in my life until this situation."
Sheen and Richards have two daughters together.
The bad actress says her "main priority" is to keep their father's scandalous behavior away from the kids, but that was made difficult in October when the actor flipped out on Capri Anderson - inside a hotel room that was across the hall from his children.
"When we went to New York, that was our intention: to have a nice time with the girls," Denise said. "I thought it was great that we could all travel together and go out to dinner and do things even though we're not together anymore.
The events that took place after that, you know, it was... difficult."
