Denise Doin' It for the Money? Yeah, Right

5/22/2008 7:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Denise Richards is crying poor, claiming that she has to pimp her kids on a reality show for the cash –- but Charlie Sheen's camp says that's a bunch of hooey.

They're telling the New York Post that Denise is getting a whopping $52,000 per month in child support – and tax-free at that – in addition to the $60K per month she got for two years in alimony. "Most people in America can figure out how to live on that, but Denise can't," says a pal.

And then there's the $25 million some say she could end up making from Sheen's show "Two and a Half Men."

Kelly Defense Gets Pissy with Witness


Having to ID your friend and niece on a sex tape is awkward at best, but four people at the R. Kelly trial did just that yesterday.

Prosecutors put Simha Jamison on the stand, and she said that she and the girl alleged to be on the sex tape were best friends for 10 years. Jamison also said that they visited Kelly's studio and b-ball court "dozens of times" from when they were twelve years old. The defense tried every which way to corner Jamison during her testimony, but girlfriend reportedly gave as good as she got.

The alleged victim's aunt and uncle also took the stand and positively ID'd her as well.

JR Calls Britney a "Master"


There are a lot of things you might call Britney Spears. "Master" is probably not one of them.

But music producer J.R. Rotem – former paramour of and current musical collaborator with BritBrit – says that's exactly what she is. "She's a lot more experienced than most people. She just has the 'it' factor that not every artist has," he gushes to People.

This is by way of saying that Spears is "in the experimental stages of a new album ... She's trying to find the sound and direction she wants to go in," according to a source.

Party Favors: Rue Givin' Crazazy Cats the Chop ... Xtina's E-Cup Madness ... Minka Says She's Not Jeter's Batgirl


Ageless sex kitten Rue McClanahan is used to having guys by the balls – and now she's got some feral cats in the same twist. She's been trapping strays in West Palm and having them spayed and neutered, reports the Palm Beach Post. Rue and Ed Asner will be starring in a Hallmark movie soon. ... Christina Aguilera tells Us that she has to wear an "E" cup bra. So we noticed. ... Minka Kelly's peeps tell the New York Post that she's not playing catch with Derek Jeter, even though it's the hot NYC rumor. That would be pretty much the only scoring any Yankee's doing these days.

Denise Richards used to be very attractive. Now she looks the same, but is incredibly unattractive. I guess personality really does matter.

Denise is going on all these shows to bring up old crap to promote her name and program. I am not sure who is going to watch a money grubing women, (most of us single mothers live on less per year than she does in one month) She can sell her house, move into an affordable housing, and raise her girl if that is what she really wanted, but it is not. She wants to be a Star/Actress, yes she is pretty, but her actions speak louder than words. Both parents are not be best, but to use your children to make more money, i.e. Lohans, etc. who live off the money from their pimping their kids out, it just too much. The women need to get a handle on her ego. I like E, but they get the lowest life forms to do their reality shows. Wow! She is useless human being. Shame on her.

Denise Richards is more and more disgusting by the second. I know the children are supposed to live as nice as their father, but if she can't take care of them and use her money wisely then maybe she should send them to live with their father.

Party 'till you die!    

Oh goody. Another failure cd of completely synthesized vocals followed up with shideous attempts at dancing and more lip syncing to look forward too. Seeing as pops has cut off the old peen wagon from her, she's a 'master' at something. (Bate!)

Dumb whore!!!!!

Another stupid story by TMZ's uneducated chimpanzees    

Denise richards is a psycho bitch. It's unbelievable how self centered & arrogant this woman is. She's making over $100,000 a month, yet she's "forced" to pimp out her kids so she can have a stupid reality TV show, because she's "broke"? Charlie sheen is lucky to have dumped this dishonest retard to the curb...

Charlie Sheen has the morals of a pig. I am not fond of his ex but I suggest that you give her a break. Charlie is a mean and vindictive person. Most of what comes out of his mouth is garbage and lies.

BTW, I wouldn't want him around my daughters either.

His free-wheeling sexual behavior was well known long before he married Denise. She was nuts to have married him.

TMZ, why are you calling Rue crazazy? ( Which by the way is NOT a real word) I think its wonderful what she's doing. Im a huge cat lover and she obviously is too because spaying and nutering is not cheap and she's doing a great service.

Denise Richards has no talent and is using her kids to hide the fact. She has no conscience (first Sambora, now reality show with her kids) She is just SELFISH. I would be happy with her monthly income for a whole year, and I am sure lots of other families in the US would too. Grow up.
