Denise Richards Worries About Charlie Sheen, Educates Children

by at . Comments

Charlie Sheen may have accused her of murdering his dog, but Denise Richards says that's all in the past. During an interview on The Today Show this morning, the actress said she and her ex are "in a good place."

Does she worry about him?

"Of course," Richards said. "He's the father of our children... [But] he's also a survivor. If anyone can pull themselves together, it's Charlie."

Hi, Denise Richards!

As a result of Sheen's antics, Richards said she's been forced to teach her daughters about issues such as addiction.

"I got a book to read to them," she 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."

Richards recently added to her brood and adopted another child. We wish the growing family all the best!

Denise Richards Quotes

I admit I have a weakness for guys that have dark hair and are passionate in bed. What's wrong with that?

Denise Richards

If I have my kids on my show, I'm exploiting them. If I don't, people will think I'm not a hands on mom – That's why it's very important to me that the girls are part of it.
