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."

Anybody that talks trash like Denise Richards does on her show can't be much of a mother. I can imagine what they learned for their first words.

Re: # 82 - by Miss Baltimore Crabs and majority of other posts,

You said it all and I agree,
Her filthy mouth and life style is the thing her children are most exposed too.
all of those " see what a good mother I am " photo ops can't save them from that.

Charlie, how did you end up with this nut case? Never mind I have an ex too. I agree, if it was such an emergency then it wouldn't have been put off till Monday.
Unfortunently, the lawyers will do or file anything Denise wants them to because they see a big paycheck. Denise has run out of attention, and this buys her some more. If she were really concerned for her kids she wouldn't have put them on tv. Charlie was 100% correct about that. Then once again, the child custody judge let the kids down.
Charlie may be a lot of things, but I am convinced that he has the kids best interest at heart, and Denise is just pathetic. She is just out to destroy Charlie any way she can. If she isn't out screwing up (pun intended) someone elses family, then she has to attack her own.

I guess I must be crazy, too, because I think Charlie Sheen is the nut job. This guy is a drug, gambling, sex and porn addict. I have never heard about Denise Richards shooting a boyfriend in the arm (remember when Charlie shot Kelly Preston?), getting arrested and violating probation numerous times, spending $50,000 on hookers in just over one year (who knows how much he has spent up till today), having long term relationships with cracked out adult film stars (Ginger Lynn for two years and later Heather Hunter), shooting up drugs, going in and out of rehab, becoming a born-again Christian for all of five seconds, alienating her family (remember Charlie's father's public plea for his son?) or any other completely wacked out behaviors like these. Give me a freaking break!!!

I think Denise saw her ratings and found that they spike when the kids are on. So she wants them more. Seriously, this is getting crazy. These people need to solve this soon, I feel so sorry for the girls. They have a right to see their Mom and Dad. They should love their children more than they hurt each other. Again this is sad. Keep your sh** in your own yard. Keep it out of the press. How does she know what is happening in his home anyway.
