Think about it, ladies: Let’s say you and your husband have
kids, endure a tumultuous marriage, then finally end your misery and get

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
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.

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.
