Denise: Something's Wrong in Charlie's House

7/17/2008 4:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Denise Richards went to court this morning, asking the custody judge for an emergency order restricting Charlie Sheen's access to their kids.

Denise and her powerhouse lawyer, Neal Hersh, went into a closed emergency hearing today. We're told they told the judge there's a serious issue in Charlie's home that could have an adverse impact on the kids. The issue, we're told, is psychological and Denise wants professionals to evaluate things. In the meantime, she doesn't want her kids hanging around there.

Our spies say the judge, who's sitting in for the regular judge on the case who is on vacation, put the matter off until Monday.

Hersh told TMZ outside court, "These are serious issues regarding the children. I would hope we will be graced by Charlie Sheen's presence in court on Monday -- if he takes these matters seriously regarding his children, like Denise does."

UPDATE: Marty Singer, Charlie's lawyer, tells TMZ the judge made it clear she would deny Hersh's motion and only then did Hersh ask to withdraw his legal papers so he could re-file with a different judge on Monday. Singer added, "It's clear Mr. Hersh went forum shopping because he knew this judge was going to deny his relief ... It is most unfortunate that Denise Richards and her attorney are desperately trying to deprive Charlie Sheen of visitation with his children, and at the same time obviously trying to create a media circus designed to help publicize her reality show."

UPDATE: Neal Hersh, attorney for Denise Richards, responded to TMZ saying, "It is true that Judge Steinberg did not grant the emergency orders requested by Ms. Richards today. However, Judge Steinberg realized that Judge Silberman, who is on vacation, has more knowledge regarding the issues present in this case and therefore decided to defer a decision on the issues presented by Ms. Richards ex parte application to Judge Silberman. Mr. Singer knows better. This was not a matter of forum shopping. If Judge Steinberg wanted to deny Ms. Richards' requests out of hand she would have done so. She deferred a decision to Judge Silberman who is the Judge assigned to this case. In any event, on Monday, there will be an emergency hearing on the issues raised by Ms. Richards today."

Where is this womans publicist? How much more vicious can she get? After stealing her friends husband, and getting dumped (thankfully Sambora came to his senses) now she spends all of her time going after Charlie. Bet she was pretty quiet while she had Richie. Hell has no fury like a woman scorned, even her own children mean nothing to her! Denise gets her own show to rehab her image, yet uses it as a vehicle to constantly complain how badley(sp?) everyone else thinks about her. What is there to think good about? Get on with your life and focus on those cute girls. Why on God's Green Earth would she want to block thier dad from seing them? I love celebrities, this one is purly disgusting.

If Charlie is Physco, what do think that foul mouth Denise is? A grudge is enough. She just wants the kids to hate him as they grow up. Jealous Bitch is what she is. The kids are going to need a brain washing to make it with either one of them. Denise is as screwed up as he is. Her family knows it too, they justs like her money to help them along. Grow up Denise and learn to share, stupid!!!!

Denise lost again in corut today. Shame she has no grounds except publicity for herself. I gather $40 million just isn't enough for her. Sounds like Heather Mills.!!!!!! When she's in a relationship, she leaves Charlie alone. When she's not.. she's after him taking him back to court and has nothing nice to say about him. I have my own opinoin.... and it's not nice.

seems to me she is the one that needs to see a shrink. she has issues. haven't heard anything coming from charlie's end. i think she imagines and fabricates stories. her kids are how old and both sucking on pacifiers. she sounds like one of those types that fills her kids heads with crap about thier dad. hopefully they are young enough to forget all the dumb stuff thier mom has pulled. denise's dad need to give her a whopping

Poor Denise has a failed relashioship, failing show as well as well as getting older and feeling alone.  At least she has her really cool, sincere, beautiful, talented, compassionate  friend   Heather to confide in, oh wait whoops, never mind. SHe has nothing except for two adorable kids she does not seems to even give any real attention to on her show.   Sad what she is teaching them.

As a divorced mother of 2 and I certainly understand needing a nemergency meeting. Kids are the main priority and I know Denise thinks that way too. She could care less about promoting her reality show. I have been watching Denise Richards realty show and have found her to be a very caring, devoted mother. She is so normal and has such a great relationship with her dad and sister that it is obvious she has a family oriented mind set. You do not know what people are like behind closed doors. I think Charlie has a lot of talent but doubt his ability to parent. He has been in trouble on and off for many years and he seems to enjoy "pulling" Denise's chain. My ex was the same way. Everyone thought he was a great guy but did not know him at all. After 13 years of being divorced I learned he fathered another child while we were married and hid this so he would not lose as much in our divorce. Nice guy huh? Denise, you are a strong woman and you have a lot of talent too, you will be fine. You are gorgeous and your body does ROCK! Eat that ice cream when you want and get this Charlie away from your darling little girls and out of your thoughts and life. I wish you all the luck!

You Lost The Respect of America    

HEY DENISE - HOW COME ALL YOUR PRESS COVERAGE BASHING THE CHILDRENS'S FATHER LAST FRIDAY LASTED LONG THAN YOUR COURT HEARING TODAY?

WHAT KIND OF SICK MOTHER WOULD HOLD PRESS HEARINGS THAT GET UPLOADED TO YOUTUBE FOR THE CHILDREN TO SEE AND HEAR ABOUT FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES? OH, THAT WOULD BE YOU DENISE. WHEN WILL YOU SHUT UP.

OH, I SAW YOUR SHOW AND IT MADE EVERYONE NOT LIKE YOU. GREAT CAREER MOVE.

WHAT IS YOUR NEXT BRILLIANT IDEA? I'M HOLDING MY VOMIT.

omg, don't you people have anything better to do? I admire the fact that DR actually loves her children. She is a GREAT Mom and unlike her ex she doen't bring home anyone. Her friends and family members tell her all the time that she needs to do other things besides being a "Mommy" . Unlike Charlie, who is too busy with either his fame, GF's or now his new wifey he can't be alone! He has a very addictive personality. That cannot be "HEALTHY" for the girls to see everytime they visit thier Daddy. Denise may not have the best choice in men but, she is not a "gold digger" she has her own money and really who cares?

Denise is a big joke just like her reality show. fake just like when she acted like her kids almost heard her cussing , when they walked in the kitchen and she exclaims ,'THAT WAS CLOSE!'. Well, if you watch that closely, she has her hair in a ponytail . then her hair is down when the kids walk in.. LMAO... SO FAKE DRAMA QUEEN

When you confront someone like this--a charmer who spends his life creating a false image to cover up the ugly truth--you're going to get trashed by those who cannot see through the act. If you love your children, you proceed nonetheless. Go Denise. Your mistake was in marrying the creep, but you can clean things up now.

Denise is trying to break up Charlies marriage. She is using every tactic , even her children. She is a disgusting, desperate mess. She needs to move on from Charlie. It's disgusting that she is using her children as pawns to get back at him. I feel so bad for those innocent children.. She is an unfit mother. She is not putting her children first. She can't keep Charlie and his new beautiful wife away from the kids. They are Charlies kids too. I'm sure he takes very good care of his children. She just doesn't want to see his wife near her girls. That's the bottom line to all of this. Denise is a manipulating, lying, pathetic mess.,

THE WELFARE OF THE KIDS COMES FIRST!!! WHO LIKES EITHER PARENT??? THAT IS NOT THE ISSUE---PUT THE KIDS FIRST--A MOTHER'S JOB IS TO PROTECT HER KIDS... THIS WAS A VERY QUICK MARRIAGE AND INSTEAD OF CHARLIE CHANGING HIS BEHAVIOR, HE JUST REMARRIES!

Nothing can withstand the wrath of a scorned woman. Can you say Parental Alienation? These children will suffer more in the long run because of her not because of the things Charlie may be doing. People do alot of things that are not exactly moral but they do not do these infront of their children. Denise is just trying to sabotage the relationship between charlie and his children. I wonder if she has been psycologically evaluated. Sounds like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder to me. She's a control freak. Children deserve to be a part of their mother and their fathers life with no disruptions. People kill me when they drag the poor innocent children through their divorce. Denise must be taking lessons from Kim Bassinger.
