Maybe It's Time for Charlie Sheen to Take Care of His Own Kids?
Denise Richards has apparently had enough. The actress, who must be competing for “Nicest Person Ever”, has been taking care of her ex-husband's 4-year-old twins Bob and Max. Yes, these are the twins of the infamous Charlie Sheen and his other ex-wife Brooke Mueller.
Richards reportedly informed the Department of Children and Family Services that she could no longer take care of the twins who she describes as violent and out of control. She says her three daughters (two of them fathered by Sheen) have been strangled, kicked, scratched, bitten, slapped, punched and spit on by the terrible duo. The twins have also abused the family dogs and slapped their teachers in the face.
I don't blame Richards one bit for protecting her family. She is a saint for trying this arrangement at all since May and I'm sure she desperately wants to help those boys. But she apparently has no authority to do so. She was quoted as saying, "With no authority to make decisions on their behalf, I feel my hands are tied in providing them the proper help, support, and care that I feel as a parent that they need."
So where are the parents? You know - the two that are in a heated custody battle over the twins.
Mueller is fighting drug problems (she has sadly been to rehab more than 20 times) but what about Charlie Sheen? He apparently has time to work on his show, "Anger Management" and tweet about his ex-wife Mueller on Twitter calling her a "pathetic uber loser whore." Whoa. I'm guessing no reconciliation there.
But why can't he take care of his kids? I get that he's a working parent but aren't most folks working parents? Can't he work and figure out a childcare situation for his children so that he can come home to them every night? Or is he too busy partying for that kind of thing.
I don't know what will save those boys. There are new photos of one of them with a burn on his face so I'm sure authorities will investigate. These kids are only four years old. Richards' home seemed like the most stable environment for them and who knows where they will go now. They do have limited visitations with Mueller but she can't give them the support they need until she can combat her own demons. I just hope someone can help those kids before they turn into the next Charlie Sheen.
