Denise Richards on Charlie's Behavior: It's Nothing New

Denise Richards is so used to Charlie Sheen's bad behavior, when she found out about the 36 hour coke and hookers bender, she wasn't the least bit surprised.

You know its bad when a 2.5-day coke binge is the norm.

Speaking on The View, she said: “It doesn’t surprise me. I mean, you know this is Charlie’s lifestyle. He makes no bones about it. And it is what it is.”

“What can you say? It’s a very difficult situation in dealing with the subject. This has been something I have dealt with for years. This is not a new situation. There are times where his life is more colorful than others, more public than others, and as the kids get older it’s a difficult thing."

Can you imagine being Charlie's ex wife? How do you explain to your kids that Daddy loves hookers and drugs and that it's no big deal?

“I’m learning as I go too. I have never had to deal with this and this was a subject I had hoped to talk with my children about as they got older. But it’s hard. I mean there are books that are out there. One in particular, I’m blanking on the title, it explains addiction to children. There are images and pictures that a child can understand. I don’t know what they fully comprehend from these conversations. They don’t know what some of these things are. So I do the best I can and it’s not easy.”

Say what you will about Charlie, I know he’s a big old mess, but at least he’s not hiding who he is. He’s not pretending everything is peachy keen and is totally willing to joke about the situation. He’s literally Charlie Harper!
