Denise -- I'm No Dina Lohan!

5/8/2008 7:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Denise Richards thinks that no matter what she does on her reality show with her kids, she's going to get the shaft. And she's probably right.

"If I have my kids on my show, I'm exploiting them," she tells Redbook. Yep. "If I don't, people will think I'm not a hands-on mom." Not so much, actually. But "that's why it's very important to me that the girls are part of it." Also, who really cares about Denise Richards by herself anyway?

Charlie's fiancée Brooke Mueller doesn't think it's a very good idea: "It's exploitative and not good," she told Usmagazine a while back. Denise's show debuts Memorial Day.

Andy Gives Marla Unconditional Discharge


Ladies, get in line: "Bachelor" Andy Baldwin has dumped Marla Maples.

Baldwin gave Marla her walking papers after he moved to Washington, D.C. to take a job with Navy Medicine and the long distance "wasn't working" for the couple, according to Usmagazine.com. The pair – he was 13 years her junior – met last year and spent New Year's together.

Just in time for spring.

Rather Blathers: I Can't Get a Job!


Dan Rather just won't stop suing CBS, now alleging that by throwing him under the bus, they've stopped him from getting a new job.

In an amended complaint to his $70 million suit against CBS, Rather charges that CNN, ABC, NBC, FOX, and even Nat Geo wouldn't hire him because he had too much baggage – all because CBS hung him out to dry after the Air National Guard scandal. He's been toiling for something called HDNet in the meantime.

CBS says it will be filing "an appropriate motion to dismiss."

I did not even know who Denise was until she was with Charlie, I don't think she should put the kids on TV at such and early age.

It had to be said for the people who are actually trying to defend this blatant exploitation of her & her children. The negative is that this is STRICTLY for her own career gain. (If were calling participating in a reality show a career gain nowadays *eyeroll*) It's not like they need the money. Try using your talent (if you have any) to try and find a REAL job Denise and leave your kids out of your irresponsible, narcisistic attempt to get your face seen & cheap money made. Period. I'm and everyone I've discussed this with, sees it for what it is...an aging talenless woman making a desperate grab for well anything. It's transparent and disgusting!

No one gives a crap about tom cruise anymore. His career is over and his revamping of his image this week was EPIC FAIL.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Lmfao!

Denise Richards lives in la-la land. The only things she's famous for anymore are dragging her kids through a never-ending divorce with Charlie Sheen, who by the way is still very successful, and for dating Heather Locklear's leftovers. There must be some seriously desperate television executives out there because they haven't even realized that no one is interested in Denise's life much less wants to actually watch it. And it's very important to her that her girls are included in her reality show so people don't think she isn't a hands-on mom? Lame! That is just about the sorriest excuse I've ever heard for exploiting your children. The judge who allowed this is a complete moron. At least those poor girls have one decent parent...Charlie.

What would people want to know about Denise Richards? Nothing. This reality show stuff is sooooo dumb and what's next a Pam Anderson show, oh that's already going to happen. What about the life of Gary Busey or Lee Majors? Stop this crap!!

Not that I really care but why didn't/hasn't anyone said anything about Kimora Lee Simmons having her two young daughters on her reality show? I don't think it's a great idea to have little children, especially darling little girls, on TV on these types of shows but it won't ruin their lives. I'm sure the mom's have excellent security on a daily basis anyway. I think the judge in this case was an idiot that didn't give Charlie Sheen a fair deal. Sheen has every right to say no to this type of situation and his rights as a father should have been upheld.

No Denise-you are a different type of bad mother

1 You think acting is taking your clothes off multiple times for Playboy YOU’RE A STRIPPER NOT AN ACTRESS
2 Making bomb movie after bomb movie
3. Bomb TV shows
4. Acting like a 5 year old (along with your ex-husband) in the divorce
5. And, of course, going out with the NOW DUI EXHUSBAND OF YOUR FRIEND

Who wants to watcha show about Denise exploiting her children, I would hope nobody! Denise has proven herself to be a liar and a ditz. I cannot believe Charlie lost his court case against having his children on this stupid show. What was that judge thinking?

What a dumb b**tch; who in the world would think she was a bad or not a hands on mother for NOT having her innocent girls on her show. Fortunately the show probably won't run for more than a couple of weeks before it's canceled. I've never heard of anyone putting someone down for not exploiting their young children. Who's going to watch or be interested in what she does anyway? What does she do?

Here's an option, Denise - just don't do the freaking show! That would show the entire world what a good parent you are, rather than an exploitative fame-hungry wh*re.

Here's a really scary thought....what if denise, dinah, lynne and kimora got together a formed their own "mingling moms" group? Can you imagine the damage they could inflict? A group aimed at new moms and moms-to-be to guide that teach them how to exploit their children. A whole new crop of spoiled, snotty, unthankful, probably talentless brats.Think of the impact on hollywood. Never again would there be a decent child star-turned-adult worth a flip.

Dan Rather is a mean, old, biased and grouchy guy. Didn't he save any of the millions he was paid on CBS or why else is he suing for so much? He should have retired gracefully and let his long career speak for itself but now that he keeps taking this to court no other media outlet will hire him for fear he'll pull this crap on them. He's not exactly a ratings grabber or a pleasant person to watch. Too bad he wasn't an honest newsman or this wouldn't have happened.
