Denise Richards is More than Just a Beverly Housewife

More than just a doll-eyed, bold-browed bombshell, Denise Richards is one tough cookie who knows a thing or two about overcoming hardships. From an ugly divorce to an alleged affair to an excruciating surgery, this ‘90s pinup girl has had to grow some thick skin over the years. Today, she says she’s found “the love of [her] life” and has never been happier.

She’s also opened up about her infamous kiss in Wild Things, the fear her daughters might have “daddy issues,” and the reason she refused to strip for Starship Troopers.

Here’s everything there is to know about the Beverly Hills Real Housewife, Denise Richards.

The Only Girl on the Baseball Team

Long before she became a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills, Denise Richards was a little tomboy who spent her afternoons playing baseball with the neighborhood boys. Born in Downers Grove, Illinois, she was raised by her mom, Joni, a coffee shop owner, and her dad, Irv, a telephone engineer.

The family ended up moving to California, but not because they wanted to push Denise into the limelight. Her dad was simply sick of the frigid Illinois weather and longed for a warmer, sunnier climate. But stardom came rolling her way. Once she stepped foot on the warm pavements of California’s surfing village Oceanside, with her pouty lips and big blue eyes, she was rapidly scouted as a teen model.

She Helped Charlie Clean Up His Act

Like many stars, modeling was Denise’s gateway into acting. And acting was her way of meeting Charlie Sheen, who, at the time, was a troubled actor with a hefty history of drug abuse and legal issues. They met on the set of the film Good Advice (2001) and ran into each other again when Denise guest-starred on the TV series Spin City.

The actress helped him get his act together, and, for a while there, she became the reason Charlie stayed sober. Denise claimed that by their second date, she knew he was the one. And by the end of 2001, they were engaged.

A Lavish Ceremony

The lovebirds tied the knot in the summer of 2002. The weather was warm, sparks flew in the air, and the two were naively optimistic about the future ahead of them. And less than a year after their wedding, the newlyweds announced they were expecting.

Charlie was still clear-headed and sober when their first baby girl, Sami, was born. “A lot of people have an impression of [us] being wild and crazy,” she revealed in an episode of Real Housewives. “But Charlie was sober when we got married, so we were not this swinging couple like people might assume. We weren’t.”

“Sometimes Marriages Don’t Work”

By the time baby girl number two, Lola, came around in 2005, their marriage was already on the rocks. “It was a very dark time. Very toxic. And I filed for divorce when I was six months pregnant with her.” So, what happened? How did things go downhill so quickly?

Denise didn’t speak up about it at the time. She argued that he didn’t cheat, he didn’t relapse, and that there wasn’t any juicy scandal responsible for their “irreconcilable differences.” She preferred to keep it a private matter between the two of them and told E! News that: “Sometimes marriages don’t work. It’s as simple as that.”

Strong for Her Girls

As it turns out, Charlie had cheated on Denise. She found out in 2006 and immediately rushed to get an HIV test.

Now listen, it’s one thing to cheat when it’s just you and your wife, but it’s another thing entirely to cheat with prostitutes when you have two little girls at home. Oh, and it’s a whole other thing to have “very young girl” pornography on your computer.

Denise had to deal with the whole thing on her own because, for obvious reasons, she couldn’t confide in her two daughters. She knew she couldn’t tell them the truth because they were way too young to grasp such information.

From Friends to Foes to Friends Again

Not only did Charlie cheat on her, but he also hit her on the wrist, shoved her in the stomach, and threatened to kill her and her parents. On his end, he stated it was all a bunch of nonsense and that her claims were “vile” and “baseless.”

Their divorce was finalized in 2006, and everyone hoped that that would put an end to their tumultuous fights. But when you have two kids to care for, it’s never that simple. Still, they managed to cool things down for several years, with Denise claiming in 2012 that the two were like “best friends now.”

She Doesn’t Want Her Daughters to Grow Up With Daddy Issues

“I always did whatever I could to hide Charlie’s behavior,” Denise told her Real Housewives costars. She would come up with excuses like, “Daddy had to go to work, but he loves you two very much.” But after their split, and once the girls grew up a bit more, she knew she couldn’t lie to them anymore.

Still, Richard has never bad-mouthed Charlie in front of the girls (and there’s A LOT to bad mouth about). She expressed on the show that the last thing she wants for her girls is for them to grow up with daddy issues.

Charlie Called Denise “The Worst Mom in the World”

So, remember when we said that Denise and Charlie cooled things down for the sake of the girls? That didn’t last for very long. Their efforts fell apart in 2015 when Sheen acted like a man-child and began cyberbullying his ex-wife, tweeting things like “worst mom alive” and an “evil terrorist sack of landfill trash who couldn’t act hot in a fire or wet in a pool.”

His remarks were especially hurtful, given the fact that two years earlier, Denise had agreed to house his twin boys (from his previous marriage) after their mom (Sheen’s ex-wife, Brooke Mueller) lost custody of them and Sheen was out working. Rather than leaving them in an empty house with a nanny, Richards took them in for a couple of months until she could no longer do so because they went ballistics.

Just a Gold-Digging Snake?

Denise decided to sue Charlie in 2016, claiming that he abandoned a trust fund he had opened for the kids. On his part, the actor told TMZ that Denise was just “desperate to get more money” out of him. Apparently, Charlie pays for the kids’ school, food, and other additional expenses.

So, when Denise called him out like that for messing around with the children’s funds, he fumed with anger. Denise’s rep told the media that she’s fighting for her children’s rights and that it has nothing to do with his money. “It’s about him providing for the children as he agreed to do.”

She Threw Her Laptop at the Paparazzi

I know we pointed fingers at Charlie Sheen earlier for being this crazy, unrestrained man-child. And while that may be true, it’s not like Denise was 100% sane all along. She’s had her share of slipups, including one in 2006 when she threw two of her laptops over the balcony.

After spotting two photographers taking pictures of her, she confronted them, and when they wouldn’t budge, she tried to hit them with her computers. One of which struck an 80-year-old woman in a wheelchair. The other one hit the arm of a 91-year-old woman. Neither of them was badly wounded, and no charges were pressed against Denise.

A Surprising Twist

Honestly, Denise and Charlie’s rocky relationship could fill up a whole telenovela script. But enough with them. Let’s move on to lover numero dos – Bon Jovi’s guitarist, Richie Sambora. This came as a bit of a surprise because No.1 – why would Denise go for yet ANOTHER bad boy?

And No.2 – Richie Sambora is Heather Locklear’s ex-husband. Locklear was good friends with Charlie Sheen, so naturally, she became good friends with his then-wife, Denise. That’s why people went crazy when Denise went public with Sambora.

She Wasn’t Really Friends With Locklear

In Denise’s defense, she insisted that she wasn’t friends with Locklear when things began to heat up with Sambora. “She and I weren’t even speaking then,” she said on an episode of Beverly Housewives. “It wasn’t ever like we’d be shopping and go back to her house, and I’d flirt with her husband.”

“Yes, I got together with Heather’s soon-to-be ex-husband, but no, I didn’t have an affair with him,” she added. Both she and Sambora were dealing with ugly divorces, so they found comfort in each other’s arms. One thing led to another, and they suddenly found themselves madly in love.

The Stress Proved Too Much

Well, maybe madly in love is a bit of an overstatement. And let’s be real. Denise and Richie’s love story was doomed from the get-go. They got into it with such baggage that there was really no way they could build anything worth fighting for.

Denise was struggling with her divorce from Charlie, who himself was going through a rough patch after his mother was diagnosed with cancer. In the meantime, Sambora’s dad was battling lung cancer. So, the accumulated stress made it virtually impossible for anything real to blossom.

She Says She’s Finally Found ‘The One’

Denise is currently married to “the love of her life,” a man named Aaron Phypers, who was previously married to Desperate Housewives starlet, Nicollette Sheridan. Phypers owns a wellness center that focuses on DNA repair and anti-aging treatments, and it’s in that very center that the two first locked eyes.

“So, I met him at his center,” she told Us Weekly, “and one time, we had sex in one of his rooms. We’ve been inseparable ever since.” They got engaged in 2018 and shortly after exchanged vows in front of their friends and family, the beautiful sea, and a bunch of hovering paparazzi snapping photos from choppers above.

The Glanville Affair Rumors

Whenever she has the opportunity, Denise gushes about her husband, saying that she will forever be his number one fan because she’s constantly learning from him and is always in awe of his incredible work. But something really fishy happened around the same time that she and Aaron tied the knot.

Rumors began to circulate about her and fellow Beverly Housewives star Brandi Glanville. The rumors claimed that the two were hooking up behind Aaron’s back. And that Denise didn’t really consider it cheating because Aaron had said that as long as it was a girl she was making out with, he didn’t mind.

How It Really Went Down

The alleged affair-but-not-really-affair went something like this: Denise and Brandi went out for drinks, and the whole entire time, Denise was reportedly staring at Brandi’s boobs. She said she eyed them because she was curious about the implants and was considering having hers redone.

So, they scrambled off to the bathroom together, where Brandi flashed her girls for Denise to inspect. But the moment her top went up, so did the jig. Denise reportedly threw her against the wall and smooched her all over. Brandi later stated in an interview with the DailyMailTV that she didn’t mind at all, and despite being a bit confused, she enjoyed every minute of it.

Brandi Thinks Denise Is Beautiful

Regardless of the bad blood between them today (we’ll get to that in a second), Brandi admitted that she loved spending time with Denise and that she thought she was beautiful and sexy and really enjoyed the night they spent together.

That’s why she was terribly hurt when Denise refused to acknowledge that it ever happened. On the show (Beverly Housewives), Brandi told the girls that the morning after they had sex, Denise woke up, more hysterical than ever, and cried, “Aaron can never know this. He’ll kill me.”

Did Brandi Make Everything Up?

Since then, Denise has been a no-show. She hasn’t shown her face much in several social events, according to fellow housewife Garcelle Beauvais. She also argued that Brandi made the whole thing up for “shock value.”

“I do not have an open marriage, and I have not cheated on my husband,” she told Us Weekly.

But Brandi insists she’s telling the truth. She flooded Twitter with piles of evidence, concluding with, “Maybe if you’re so worried about hurting your children, then as a married woman, you should not f**k your castmates and expect it not to get out. Take responsibility for your part DR.”

She Opened Up to the Cameras

Apart from adding her share of steamy love scandals to the show (and also bringing in her good-looking husband), Denise has opened up her heart and showed us a vulnerable side nobody was really expecting. She shared real footage of the surgery she had to undergo to treat her four hernias.

“I felt very vulnerable having me filmed before & after,” she shared on her Instagram account, “but felt it was important to show, given many of us can ignore symptoms.” For a long time, the star had tried brushing off her symptoms, thinking they would go away. She learned the hard way that ignoring them made everything a whole lot worse.

She Waited Too Long

Denise said she discovered she had four hernias after a long period of ignoring her body’s signals. After seeking care, she was finally given an explanation for the pains she had been experiencing. “I waited way too long and didn’t even tell my husband how bad I was feeling (I know it was stupid),” she posted on Instagram.

It wasn’t long before fans bombarded her DMS with kind and loving messages. The Real Housewife was moved to tears by everyone’s love and posted that she was unbelievably grateful for their supportive and heart-warming words.

What She Felt When Shooting Wild Things

Denise knows a thing or two about letting it loose in front of the cameras. Who can forget her iconic make-out session in the 1998 drama Wild Things? And usually, when it comes to nudity, the one thing people want to know is – is it awkward stripping in front of a group of strangers?

“I think the body is beautiful, and there’s certain movies where it is provocative and evokes emotion and feeling, and I like that,” she told interviewers at NewsAu. She added that she’s very comfortable with her sexuality and that Wild Things was her favorite project to date.

Her Audition Wasn’t Good, But At Least She Was Beautiful

It’s hard to picture Wild Things without Denise. But surprisingly, the director of the movie, John McNaughton, spoke candidly with Entertainment Weekly about her audition and said that they almost didn’t pick her: “Richards was good, but not so good we had to hire her.”

Thankfully, they called her back for a second audition, and that’s when she confidently nailed it. “She was a lot better,” he explained, “She’d obviously thought about the character, which we took as a good sign that she could do the role. If worse came to worst, we knew she’d be beautiful.”

Neve Enjoyed the Kiss, Denise Found it Weird

“It was fun,” actress Neve Campbell (Suzie Toller) told Rolling Stone. “We just sort of went in and did it. Actually, we mixed margaritas and brought a bottle of wine in my trailer and got drunk first.” She admitted she was a bit excited beforehand because it would be her first time making out with a girl.

Richards, on the other hand, found it a bit weird. “At one point during Wild Things, we were shooting at night, and I just sat there and thought, ‘It’s four o’clock in the morning. I’m half-naked in a swimming pool. I’m making out with Neve Campbell. What am I doing here?”’ she told Entertainment Weekly.

Stripping for Playboy Magazine

Speaking of nudity, in 2004, Denise Richards did a number of photoshoots that were significantly racier than anything she had done before. Just five months after giving birth, she posed nude for Playboy magazine for their December edition.

She graced the cover with her infectious smile, bright blue eyes, and a diamond-studded brassiere.

Now that Denise’s daughters are both in their teens, the model has admitted she’s spoken to them about the experience of posing nude, stating, “I’m honest with them.”

On Refusing to Pose Nude

Yes, yes, we know. Richards posed for Playboy and showed her breasts in Wild Things. But before that, she was just a teen model working her way up and trying to figure things out. One of her first campaigns was set in Japan, where she was asked to model underwear but decided to refuse.

“It infuriated the agency,” she wrote in her 2012 memoir. “I wasn’t altogether uncomfortable with my body, but I didn’t have a figure that allowed me to brim with self-confidence in all departments, and being photographed in my underwear bothered me.”

She Regrets Her Implants

Ridiculed for her “fish lips” in middle school and feeling extremely self-conscious about her flat chest as a teenager, Denise went ahead and got breast implants at just 19 and had another augmentation right before filming Wild Things.

During both operations, she said that the surgeons used larger implants than she had requested. She has since had them reduced. She maintains that she will do everything she can to convince her daughters to love their bodies and embrace themselves no matter what. “I wish in hindsight that I never even got them,” she told The Washington Post.

She Prefers Acting to Modeling

While modeling kickstarted Denise’s career, she always knew that she wanted to get into the film industry, both as an actress and as a filmmaker. “To this day, I love being on set with filmmakers, the actors, the crew. I love working. It has always been my passion that has kept me motivated through rejection,” she stated.

But the road into the industry hasn’t been easy, and Denise (to this day) isn’t always taken seriously as an actress. She’s had to develop thick skin over the years. And no matter how much she wants to make it big in Hollywood, she admits that she’s “not one that will just call someone up and say, ‘Hey, will you consider me for this part?’ I wish I was like that, but I’m not.”

She Was a Bond Girl in the 007 Series

In 1999, Richards was cast for her biggest role yet, acting alongside Pierce Brosnan in the James Bond flick, The World Is Not Enough. She starred as Dr. Christmas Jones, but apparently, viewers didn’t like the movie nor the chosen Bond Girl.

Criticism for her Bond role came with a dreaded Razzie Award for worst supporting actress. She was called out for wearing skimpy attire and executing her action moves poorly. “I’m a Bond girl playing a scientist. Would they want me wearing a lab coat and dressed conservatively? It’s tongue in cheek,” she replied.

Her Tell-All Memoir, The Real Girl Next Door

Denise published her candid memoir, The Real Girl Next Door, in 2011, where she wrote down everything from dealing with her mother’s death to raising two kids with Charlie Sheen. She also discussed her ex-husband’s extreme paranoia.

She revealed Charlie had a bulletproof door installed in their house and a closet with a fire pole in case they needed to flee the scene. Sheen’s cautious attitude is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the wacky things written in her book.

She Guest-Starred on Friends

Who can forget Denise’s blond, luscious hair, flipping from side to side in slo-mo? Certainly not Chandler Bing. In a 2001 episode of Friends, Denise starred as Cassie Geller, Monica’s cousin. The episode is titled “The One with Ross and Monica’s Cousin.”

Fans of the show were so happy with her performance that they were surprised when she wasn’t invited back! Everyone wanted another piece of Cassie. She seemed to fit right in with the rest of the gang.

Fun fact: Before Jennifer Aniston was cast to play Rachel, Denise Richards was eyeing the part. She was one of the thousands of women who auditioned for it.

It’s Complicated on E!

Following her publicized split from Charlie Sheen, Denise launched her own reality show on E! called Denise Richards: It’s complicated. It aired in May 2008, and Sheen, who was extremely furious about it, commented that her move to launch such a show was “greedy, vain and exploitative.”

Charlie refused to let his daughters on the show, and they ended up taking the matter to court. Richards ultimately won the case, allowing her to parade her daughters on TV all she wanted. The show didn’t last long and aired for just two short seasons.

She Adopted a Third Daughter, Eloise Joni

Despite her ugly divorce from Charlie Sheen, Denise knew she had so much more love to give and was adamant about expanding her family, with or without a man. So, in June 2011, she adopted a child, a baby girl named Eloise Joni.

Eloise’s middle name is Joni, after Denise’s mother, who died of cancer in December 2007. Eloise suffers from a chromosomal disorder, causing many developmental delays. She wasn’t able to sit up on her own and had to be put through physical therapy when she was two years old.

She’s Partnered With Best Friends Animal Society

Many people don’t know this, but Denise Richards is a huge animal lover. She’s worked with Best Friends Animal Society, helping them raise money through organizing fundraising campaigns and using her fame to spread the word about abandoned and used animals.

She’s also adopted a rescue dog from a Long Island shelter shortly after the tragic impact of Hurricane Sandy. The actress has even adjusted her house to suit many foster dogs. She converted her garage into a massive puppy bedroom.

She Made a Lot of Money on Real Housewives

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is a…uh… how should I put it? A flashy show centering around a group of rich women and their lives in Beverly Hills. It’s full of drama, dramatic pauses, passive-aggressive looks, and more drama. So, one might wonder, why would anyone want to star on something like that?

For the money, of course. For the show’s ninth season, producers offered Denise an astounding $4 million to grace them with her presence as a regular cast member. She immediately said yes, a move that made her one of the highest-paid stars on the show.

Starship Troopers – Her Big Break

Richard started out as a teen model, moved on to commercials, and then, finally, her breakthrough gig was Starship Troopers. Based on Robert A. Heinlein’s novel by the same name, the 1997 film opened the doors for Denise to appear in more films like Scary Movie and Drop Dead Gorgeous.

In Starship Troopers, she played the role of Carmen Ibanez, a cool and collected sci-fi soldier, and spaceship pilot. This, with Wild Things, are two of Denise’s favorite projects. She felt like she was really able to express herself and fulfill her potential as an actress.

She Owns Millions in Real Estate

Shortly after divorcing Charlie Sheen, Denise sold her Hidden Hills home for an impressive $4.25 million. She also reportedly owns (or owned) another house in the Hollywood Hills, which is worth around $4.4 million.

In addition to her real estate riches, Richard owns a collection of luxury cars, including a Mercedes and Cadillac, valued at $70,000 each. As you can tell, she knows how to manage her money quite well, allowing her to live a very comfortable life.

A Positive Attitude

Above all, Denise cares most about being a positive role model for her daughters. She told Closer that she had to “suck it up” for the sake of her kids. “Suck it up — because they didn’t ask to be born into a family that splits and shouldn’t have to deal with parents at each other’s throats.”

Juggling motherhood, her mom’s passing in 2007, a demanding career, and a widely publicized divorce was A LOT. Yet, she managed to push through by blocking out negative remarks and remaining positive and confident. “I knew I had to stay focused on really blocking a lot of that stuff out and being the best mom I could be,” she explained.

She Has One Serious Phobia

If there’s one thing Denise Richards is terrified of – it’s puking. And while none of us enjoy vomiting, Richards’s fear of it is on a whole new level. She runs out of a room when someone is even the least bit sick. There’s a reason behind her phobia.

When she was little, she followed her dad into the bathroom one night while he was sick. She apparently saw him puke, and it scarred her for life. She thought he was dying. Denise’s phobia has haunted her during her pregnancies, causing her to give up certain foods like broccoli and salmon because they made her nauseous.

Inked for Life

Before they married, Charlie Sheen decided to surprise Denise by getting a tattoo of her name. And surprised she was! She thought he was planning on removing his old tattoos, including the letter “D” he tattooed after his first wife. Denise joked that he got lucky marrying two women with the same first initial.

Once they married, Richards decided to follow in his footsteps and inked his name as well. After their divorce, tattoo artist Kat Von D. transformed his name on her ankle into a whimsical, beautiful fairy. “It hurt like hell,” she wrote in her memoir, “But I expected as much. Changing your life, like a tattoo, isn’t easy—or without pain.”

Her Daughter’s Shocking Tik Tok Videos

Charlie and Denise’s daughter, Sami, dropped a bombshell last month when she uploaded to her Tik Tok account a video of her sharing some dark family secrets. She complained about being “trapped and miserable at her mom’s place.”

She wrote that she was living in an “abusive household” and was “insanely depressed.” She then added a picture of her today, smiling and happy about her current state. She explained that she finally moved out of that “hell house” and had a “spiritual awakening.”

Charlie Will No Longer Pay Child Support

Charlie Sheen has requested to stop paying his Denise Richards child support after Sami moved into his home. Putting their money issues aside, Richards is “saddened” by the situation with her daughter, and hopes that she and Sheen could become better at co-parenting.

Source: Twitter

“Denise is just like any other divorce parent dealing with a rebellious teenage daughter,” a source close to the family reported, “It’s better for Sami if Denise and Charlie were co-parenting her during this time. They are not.”
