Denise Richards’ New Gig: Charlie Sheen’s Love Interest on ‘Anger Management’
Denise Richards, it was reported last month, will be taking on a role in Charlie Sheen’s new show Anger Management.
Originally, it seemed Richards would be playing the business partner of Sheen’s character’s ex-wife, Jennifer. But now, Richards explains, her role is that of the “love interest” of Sheen’s character in the FX comedy. Richards will be joining the cast along with Sheen’s real-life dad Martin Sheen, who will be playing Charlie’s character’s dad on the show as well.
Not too long ago, Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards didn’t get on all that well. Back when he did his post-Two and a Half Men tour, the actor verbally attacked his former wife and mother to his daughters on-stage, calling Richards a “loser,” a “whore,” a “dognapper” and referring to her as “Duh-neese.”
But it would appear the former marrieds have made up, as Richards confirms their new working relationship to Extra TV. Richards spilled:
“Charlie came to me and asked me to do an episode on the show. I saw a sneak peek of the first episode and it’s really funny… I did a table read last week. I play a love interest to my ex-husband.”
And while Sheen was violently angry with his former ex-wife just last year, Denise says that he’s calmed down a lot and the two have repaired their relationship:
“He’s in a really good place… Everything is good. He’s been very focused on our children and on his job.”
Denise Richards is set to appear in the first episode of Anger Management, which airs June 28th on FX.
