Think about it, ladies: Let’s say you and your husband have kids, endure a tumultuous marriage, then finally end your misery and get divorced. Then your ex hubby marries another woman who has kids with him too. Then that woman gets hooked on drugs. Would you take in and care for that woman’s brood as if they were your own flesh and blood?

Denise Richards, the 42-year-old model and ex wife of Charlie Sheen, faced just that question recently when Sheen’s other ex wife Brooke Mueller entered the Betty Ford Clinic for treatment. Even though Richards already had her hands full with three kids of her own—Sam, 9; Lola, 8; and Elise, nearly 2, she decided to take Mueller’s two boys under her wing as well.

According to the Daily Mail, Richards—who now stars in the ABC family show Twisted—became the temporary guardian of Mueller’s 4-year-old twins Bob and Max, earlier this month. And just recently, Richards was seen treating the boys to a toy shopping spree followed by a ride on a carousel in Brentwood, Calif. And guess what? They looked pretty happy.

Are those two boys better off with Richards than their own mom? According to Perez Hilton, Sheen thinks so. In fact, the star of Anger Management plans to tell the judge presiding over his case that Richards should have permanent custody of his boys. Whether that comes to pass or not, we think Richards deserves props.
