I think you are (mistakenly) attributing these qualities to Evan because of the way he looks. Because he's not classically handsome (and Jewish) he must be some sort of nebbishy schmuck who can only get near a hot chick if he gives her money. Er, no. His wife is quite handsome and if you've seen him in interviews you know he's very cool, funny, outgoing, smart, etc. He'd never be caught dead with a woman like DR


Maybe I jumped to conclusions when there were no conclusions to jump to. Sorry. His wife is lucky, though. I've always wanted to be described as "handsome", but my features are too delicate.

Here's my question. The rumors that Denise was a Fleiss girl go back a long time, and when she was looking at the Perez blog, she didn't seem to be offended to be called a hooker, so long as it was a "high class" one. However, if she were a Fleiss girl, why wouldn't Charlie reveal this to the public? They sling enough mud at each other, and she certainly revealed all of his dirty secrets (if they are true) in the document she filed with the court. So if Denise were ever a prostitute, why wouldn't Charlie use it against her, either in court or by leaking it to the media. It's no secrect that he likes prostitutes, so it would seem he would have nothing to lose if it were true. Thoughts?


That's a good point. I doubt Charlie would hesitate to tell anyone who would be willing to listen that Denise was/is a whore. It would be her just desserts because she went to the press and said Charlie is a member of porn sites featuring underage boys and girls.

I've never heard CS has dropped any names to cover his own ass. As a matter of FACT, he came to the aid of Heidi Fleiss by testifying at her trial. CS didn't have to do that. Other famous names of record refused and did not appear on her behalf.

The funny thing is Charlie Sheen could come up smelling like a rose after all this. As much of a sleazebag manwhore he is, he has kind of turned his life over to his dad who is helping him to clean up his act. He is quietly working on his deamons while DR is on t.v. whining, bitching, begging for sympathy and lamenting the same old victim crap over and over. He will probably pull the old 'but I was a drug/alcohol/whore/gambling addict,' and give his best I'm-so-sorry-I-was-ill-at-the-time, face to the press and DR's annoying publicity campaign will have backfired. It's probably all bullshit too, but him being relatively quiet in the press is doing more for him than her public whining is for her.

One of the things that also gets me is when people rave about celebrities juggling and balancing their life and kids like Katie Holmes. I am sorry but I don't compare the average middle class working mom to Katie Holmes. Most of us don't have the resources that someone like her has so it's comparing apples to oranges.


Word. I don't think having a staff of nannies watch your kids while you are making a movie once a year or spending a few hours a week doing press or photo shoots qualifies as being a working mother. It's right up there with celeb reporters gushing over celebs losing all their baby weight in 10 minutes. If I had a nanny to watch my kids, a personal trainer, a personal chef and everything else, I could have too.

Which had to have helped Denise lose the weight after both of hers, too. It would be nice if we could all afford a chef and trainer.

I've met Evan Handler's wife, and she is beautiful, smart, and funny. They are happily married and just had a baby. If all it takes to get a sugar daddy is to stand next to someone on the red carpet, Phoebe Price would be a happy woman. She shows up the red carpet opening of an envelope.

I can't believe I watched a half hour of this crap. Denise is a horrible person. I don't see how this is helping her rep. She does have nice hair, though. There, I wasn't entirely bitchy.

If Charlie weren't in movies, he'd be a drug-addicted pimp living in a flophouse somewhere in the Inland Empire. Instead of making millions of dollars a year, he'd be hocking his mom's jewelry and cashing in her social security checks without her knowledge when his prosties weren't making enough money to keep him in crack cocaine and gold chains.

I don't think highly of Denise, but I don't think highly of Charlie, either. If it's true that she worked for Heidi Fleiss, they were perfectly suited to one another.

I actually don't find this show to be that bad, and I don't find her that terrible. Maybe because I've watched a lot of crappy reality shows with terrible people in them, I don't find Denise that bad.

Well, she did joke while being tanned that "This hot body made me a few million dollars."

I notice that she has another excuse for doing the reality show in the interview -- "I couldn't say no to Ryan Seacrest." Nothing about the dying mom's last wish.

ETA: Forgot to say that I noticed the older girl smiling, sort of, at least twice! And she showed her teeth when Denise asked her if she liked the new playhouse Denise built for her, and she (Lola or Sam; I don't know who's the older) said "No, I don't like it" and then closed the door in Denise's face.

It didn't look like a smile, but they were both baring their teeth.

They looked like Charlie, in fact, and it made me think that they probably pick up a lot of Charlie's hatred for Denise when they're with him. He won't even speak her name? And they don't notice this? Sure.

And the new wife, Brooke (isn't she pregnant already?) supposedly adores Lola and Sam. So some competition right there, at the very least.

Ugh. What a life for those poor children. I agree: set aside a trust fund for the huge amount of therapy and rehab they'll need, right now.

IMO, the name most often brought up in the inevitable Sam/Lola therapy will be their Mother's.

I have been giving DR the benefit of the doubt since this show started but yesterday's episode really had me fuming. I am so sick and tired of women like her really screaming the "poor me I am a single mom and have no time for myself" when 1) she doesn't have to hold a steady job 2) she has two assistants and god knows what other kind of help around her house 3) she is pulling in $50K per month

I only wish that all I had to do in a single day is take my kid to school and Mommy and Me and then to a dentist appt I would have plenty of time to drive to Beverly Hills for a waxing.

What are we going to hear next? These kind of people make me sick much like the very rich people who cry because they their things are very expensive. GIVE ME A BREAK!

The one and only thing I can think of concerning DR is that at one point, some director thought it was a good idea to have her play an astrophycisist (James Bond movie). That was the worst acting I've ever sen (2nd thought--Beyonce always sucks in acting roles too).

To be fair, Charlie probably calls her "Mom" around his girls, and that's technically not speaking her (given) name. Lots of women are called Mom, so I think he probably does acknowledge her around his kids without feeling like he's going back on his word because if anything, Charlie is a professional at keeping his word. Just my two cents.

Ugh, the "mediator" that Denise visited on the show is none other than Dr. Stan Katz, who testified that Michael Jackson couldn't be blamed for abusing kids since Jackson thinks he's a kid himself. He also was the "expert" on the reality show Starting Over and after a woman talked about being sexually abused told her she was lying. The guy's a total kook.

I am surprised at how nice and normal her friends seem. It looks like they try to keep her from being too much of a slut, like that one who was telling her not to do Playboy, but it's obvious they're fighting a losing battle.

I wish someone would tell her to do something with her eyebrows. They are so dark in contrast with her 'blond' hair and there is just something weird looking about them.

I hate the way Denise treats her dad. He bends over backwards to give her pleasure and all she does is give him grief. It seems to me like she makes him feel like he's not giving enough even after it's clear to everyone (but her) that's he's given all he's got. She must have worn her parents slick when she was a teen.

Hey Denise, I have taken the liberty of pouring you a steaming hot glass of SHUT.THE.FUCK.UP.

Please drink it all. Its a great cure for the self destruction of one's career.

What is wrong with this woman? I mean seriously, does she not have anything else to talk about? Every time she gets any where near a camera or magazine she tells this story. Ok, we get it, no one wants to hear it anymore.

Didn't this happen like three years ago? I don't hear a single soul discussing it except for her.

And I don't hear Charlie saying a damn thing. Why does she keep saying he is speaking out publicly against her? Is this all being printed in or played on stations we don't get? Perhaps she has him confused with the voices in her head, you know, the ones that keep telling her she's an actress, because clearly those are delusions.

P.S. Dear Denise, DO NOT make me defend Charlie anymore. I totally agree with you that he's a douche but really, at least I had the good sense not to fuck him.

I almost fell over when they told her she needed time for herself. When is she NOT taking time for herself? Doing a few driving things for the girls during the week is no big deal and I bet she farms them out to the nanny anyway and was just using them as an excuse to not go with the whiny one to get waxed. And then look what they thought time for herself should be!?

I was coming here to post the quotes that radical posted. This chick is too much. And for those of you who found her likeable after the first few eps, have you changed your tune now? I wanted to rip her head off (and that of her friends) when they kept going on and on about how Denise, as a "single mom", really needed to pamper herself and stop thinking about the kids and have fun with her friends for once!
Excuse me?!! The most pressing issue in her life is which one of her TWO personal assistants forgot to return pricey clothing to the boutique that lent it to her. And did you hear her talking about her "busy schedule." Oh, my, how does she get through the day, what with having to run from a dentist appointment to picking up Sam and Lola for Mommy and Me class? Poor Denise! If only this overworked single mom could get some time to herself to relax!


I was one of the ones who really liked her in the early episodes. Charlie is no prize package, and I felt bad for her, even though she said she likes the "bad boys". I thought the show was some damage control and she seemed quite likable. But I have crossed over. She is a selfish bitch, who only thinks of herself. Her and Kate Gosselin should become friends. Lots in common.

You have to have a career to destroy it. Denise hasn't done anything relevant in...has she ever done anything relevant? All I can think of is Wild Things, and that was nothing but glorified porn.

I want to just say that my cousin buys his teenage daughter clothes that he expects her to keep at his house. Which she is only at every other weekend.

I think it's awful to give a 'gift' with strings attached, especially to a 3 & 4 year old. Of course, who knows if Denise is telling the truth or not.

I'm sure a lot of divorced parents keep a supply of toys, clothes etc at their house for weekend visits. It saves dragging suitcases from house to house and the risk of losing stuff.

Charlie probably figured that Denise would 'accidentally-on-purpose' lose the necklaces because of their special meaning to him & Brooke, so he was just safeguarding them by keeping them at his home. I'm not seeing the problem with that. Denise making it an issue is making her look petty - not him. Infact, just about everything she's doing is pretty much backfiring on her.

I noticed that Denise (Laughs) several times during that TV Guide interview. Magazines don't always note that, but in her case it's so gratingly obtrusive. I think anyone who spends time with her must want to stick knitting needles in their ears after a day or so of hearing that awful, phony, nervous laugher.

And she can't undersand why everyone is concerned about her 10 dogs and other animals? Honey, you may have grown up on a farm (which I doubt), but your house isn't one.

Dogs are not livestock anyway. The reason celebrity families have dogs shitting all over the place and otherwise misbehaving is because the dogs are not being treated right!

Dogs are like children; they want to bond with their humans and please them. When someone has 10 dogs, or even 2 dogs who don't have a proper routine, they act out. Why is this so difficult to understand???

Denise:

Is there a law against having a lot of animals?


Actually, yes, there usually is a law. Where I live, you can only have two dogs unless (a) you have a temporary litter of puppies or (b) you have a kennel license, with permits and inspections and so forth. There are similar restrictions on other animals.

Granted, such laws aren't often enforced unless there is a complaint, but someone might whisper in Heather's ear...

Ugh, the more I see of Denise the less I like her -- and her family, friends, employees, and everyone around her. What a piece of work.
