Charlie Sheen’s Goddesses Babysit My Kids? HELL NO!
Or: An Apology to Denise Richards
-Melissa Chapman, marriedmysugardaddy.com
If I have gleaned anything at all from this Charlie Sheen freak show, which is updated on a daily basis it’s that I need to apologize to Denise Richards. PERSONALLY. All these years I thought she was the vindictive ex-wife, who would from time to time refuse to let Charlie have visitation with their two little daughters.
Up until his manic episodes, the media held up Sheen as their darling bad boy with a heart of gold, and painted Richards as an vicious ex-wife out to cut Charlie off from his progeny. But now, after bearing witness to his living arrangement, or in other words, the two goddesses who make up the three parts of his heart — the former nanny and porn star who share his home and care for his kids — I am now officially Team Denise and Team Brooke.
Who are these women shacking up with Sheen, and would I want my kids exposed to them? Baby sat, bathed by and taking cues from them? Hell no!
It’s the conundrum so many women face when having to drop off their kids with their ex husband’s new squeeze. Except these two women are anything but stable living in an environment with a man like Sheen who, based on his recent online rants and taped TV segments, believes he has tiger blood coursing through his veins and is akin to a deity.
Any woman who would put up with that type of break from reality on the part of her lover is clearly either off–balance, in denial, or just so taken with the trappings of said lover’s lifestyle that she is willing to overlook the nonsensical, drug-fueled drivel that spews from his mouth.
In any event, as a mother, I would appeal to any judge who would listen to me, to bar Sheen from seeing my children and being placed in the care of those two women he calls his goddesses … wouldn’t you?
