Denise Richards was one of the hottest stars in the industry during her peak years. However, Richards has recently opened up about her divorce from Charlie Sheen and their current situation.

The Starship Troopers actress spoke about her three-year marriage to the Two and a Half Men alum during a recent interview with Real Housewives of Dubai star Caroline Stanbury on her podcast Divorced, Not Dead. The marriage, according to her, was “traumatic.”

“I don’t regret my marriage to Charlie, obviously at all, because I really do believe that he and I were brought together to have our daughters. I filed for divorce when I was six months pregnant, which was very difficult and I didn’t realize the impact of how public it would be and how it would affect my career personally, because I thought, ‘This is my personal life, why is this affecting my professional life?’ I think I was on the tabloid covers for about two years straight during that time. And it was incredibly difficult.”

The former RHOBH star continued by saying that her mother was ill during the time of the divorce in 2005, but her concern for Sami and Lola was what bothered her the most. “I had these two babies and it was really so hard for me and I just really had to go put myself in a bubble and protect them at the end of the day,” she said.

“Who’s really there? It’s my family and my kids. And I think that’s what got me through the initial part of the divorce.” She added, “It was very traumatic for me. It was really difficult.”

Denise admitted that she and Charlie briefly reconciled after Lola was born. “I’m glad we did because it made me also know I could one day tell my girls that I did everything I could possibly do to make this family unit,” Denise explained.

“And that’s what I felt the most guilty of: was splitting up the family unit. I struggled with that for years. It was not easy, but at least I knew that I did everything that I could to make that work as much as possible.”

Denise stated that the post-divorce phase between them was initially “dark.” However, she also believes that her relationship with Charlie has “evolved” over the years. Stay tuned to Thirsty for more updates.
