Looks like I'm not the only one being won over by Denise Richards new, low key image.
The NY Post reports that despite their initial reservations about even granting her an audition, producers of a new ABC Family series have given the former Bond Girl a role.
Richards is the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen and mother to two daughters with him, a daughter she adopted post their divorce, the two boys he had with Brooke Mueller and possibly parenting some neighbor children I don't know about.
Socio, is an hour long drama about a teenager's life after he is released from jail for killing his aunt. Richards will play the boy's mother, a socialite who now must deal with the fall out of her son's return.
The pilot will begin shooting next month.
Given my tween's love for the channel, if it does get picked up, I will probably be watching.

Rumors of how she got her start in show business aside, Denise Richards is not someone I've ever spent a lot of time thinking about. I believe Charlie Sheen to be mentally unwell, so while titillating, whatever went down during their marriage is of no interest to me. There was that messiness about the time line of her dating Richie Sambora when he and Heather Locklear split, but it was garden variety he said/she said stuff.
In addition to the two daughters she had with Sheen, Denise adopted a baby girl last year, becoming the primary caregiver to three children under 7 years of age. Even WITH a house full of help that is a busy work load for a responsible parent.
Recently pictures have surfaced of Denise with Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller's 3 year old twin boys, Max and Bob on an outing in Malibu with Richards' daughters Sam, 8, Lola, 7, and Eloise, 16 months.
Substance abuse, divorce, and custody issues, sprinkled with tens of millions of dollars is a recipe for disaster. Whatever is actually happening in the Richards-Sheen-Mueller household, I am glad to see the kids together, being raised by the most stable (seemingly at least) adult of the trio...Denise.
So whether or not this is a ploy for another spin on the reality show roulette wheel, I'm still nominating Denise Richards for Co-Parent of the Year.

Please. PLEASE. Just let Denise Richards take care of Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller's twins, Bob and Max for awhile. I'm sure their half-sisters, Sam and Lola would love having them to play with. It's the lesser of three evils, right?
You can read all the horrible details of Charlie and Brooke's messy divorce, his feelings about ex-wife, Denise Richards and all the rest of today's court details right HERE, wherein BOTH parents filed for sole custody of their twin sons, Bob and Max.
Those poor babies. I'm sure we'll be hearing horror stories about these boys in 10-15 years. Hello, anyone remember Ryan O'Neal's kids' problems? Yeah. Google Tatum, Griffin, and Redmond O'Neal for a peek into the future.

A couple of things...firstly? Everyone needs to stop comparing Lindsay Lohan to this 45-year old father of pack of kids from different mamas, makes $2 million a WEEK for a sub-par sitcom, but is still an embarrassing and dangerous screw-up. Not even close. We'll get back to this issue in a moment.
Secondly, Charlie was staying in the Eloise Suite at the Plaza Hotel with his ex-wife Denise Richard and their two daughters, Lola and Sam, who were apparently staying in adjoining rooms in the suite when Charlie allegedly got crazy-ass drunk, high on coke and had a hooker with him. In the ELOISE SUITE?? Oh, and did I mention that StupidCharlieSheen trashed the suite to the tune of $7000+? Gotdamnit.
The Eloise Suite is sacred ground, my friend, and hookers, coke and CHARLIE SHEEN do NOT belong there. (However, "Nanny" most certainly drank sherry after tucking Eloise in, but that's different. After a day with Eloise, Skipperdee and Weenie, Nanny deserved a cocktail and a ciggie.)
Back to that pig, Sheen. Jaaaayzus. Ten bucks says he totally walks on all of this crap completely unscathed. As bloody usual. How many times does this whore get to break the law and women's jaws...oh wait. Charlie prefers guns (he "accidentally shot" Kelly Preston) and knives (the Aspen incident with soon-to-be ex-wife Brooke) for which he still has EIGHT DAYS OF PROBATION!!
"Charlie was drunk and naked in his hotel room at 2 AM when security was called. The Post reports chairs had been thrown around the room and a chandelier was damaged. The report also mentions that Charlie headed back to his hotel room with an unidentified woman and that he flew into a rage after noticing his wallet had gone missing."
and via TMZ.com:
"Charlie pled guilty to assault back in August and was placed on 3 months probation. If he violates probation, the Aspen D.A. could go back to court and ask the judge to throw Charlie in jail.
Prosecutor Arnie Mordkin tells TMZ, his office would not take any action unless there are facts conveyed to his office showing that a probation violation occurred.
Sheen may have dodged a bullet. He was not arrested, but cops came close. We're now told when police arrived to Charlie's Plaza hotel room, they told him he needed to go to the hospital. Charlie said he did not want to go and he was fine. At that point we're told the police gave Charlie an option -- go to the hospital or go to jail. Charlie wisely chose door number 1."
Yeah. Which option would YOU choose? Durrrr. And now Charlie's rep is saying it was all just an "allergic reaction". Apparently that's code for hookers, booze and drugs now. "Hey, let's go do some Allergic Reaction tonight, boys!!"
Those poor kids. Do they even stand a chance at a normal life? When they get older, they can do a history report on a celebrity who favored hookers (oh, HEY, Heidi Fleiss! HEY, Ladies!), booze and cocaine...and weapons. Or, maybe they shouldn't.
Charlie Sheen is the poster child old dude for Assholery. You'll find pamphlets at your local free clinic.
Oh, and leave Lindsay alone. At least while she's in rehab. Let's go after her skeezer-free-loading parents instead who are still tryna make a buck off their daughter.
