Warring Videos at Center of Denise vs. Charlie

7/21/2008 5:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards both say they couldn't be happier with the latest courtroom custody battle -- a battle that has a lot to do with home video.

TMZ has learned Richards' lawyer, Neal Hersh, came armed with home video from Denise, showing her kids acting out in a way Denise found alarming. Hersh would not comment on the video, but we're told the way the kids have been acting is why she wants restrictions on Charlie's contact with the kids. We also know the videos were not shown in court.

And it gets better ...

On the other side, Charlie's lawyer, Fern Wender, brought her own video to court, courtesy of Charlie. We're told this video shows the kids acting just fine.

Hersh said, "Denise could not be happier with the order. She fully intends to support these orders and only hopes that Charlie will support those orders and follow them."

Denise Richards: Click to watchWender says Charlie was very happy the court commissioner only granted the innocuous portions of what Denise was asking for, and denied everything else. Hersh fired back, "It is shameful that he is trying to keep a tally on who won and who lost. The judge granted certain orders and denied others. This was about an emergency situation regarding her children."

Charlie's camp says the Commish did not find any emergency to justify changes to the current custodial arrangement. As for keeping score, Charlie's peeps point out that it was Hersh who invited the media to attend this morning's hearing, not them. They also add that all Charlie wants is what's best for his young children, including keeping these court hearings private.

denise, don't pay attention to these rude comments. I think your a great mom. I love that you have a good relationship with your dad. Please cherish every moment. Enjoy life and stay positive! You just do what you have to do for yourself and your babies.

When they first announced that they were getting married, I was really wondering what Denise Richards was thinking. Every woman in his past has been abused in some way. He's a recovering(?) addict and has attacked his former wives. Remember the model he married a while ago? And now he's duped another woman into marrying him. What is the matter with these people?

Complains about the paps following her all around, while her OWN camera crew are there on the beach in Hawaii -- HELLO douchebag! Ever think that a camera crew MIGHT just catch the eye of the paps to see who's being filmed? She's a joke, she's rude, she's obnoxious, and she's a has-been. E! Network is making money off this train-wreck and showing life in her household as it really is. The Commish should watch her show.

I'd pick Charlie Sheen to babysit my kids over Richie Sambora any day of the week.

Denise Richards' next stop is an airbrushed Penthouse spread before she starts doing porn.

Dude, Ok im sure the kids odd behavior has nothing to do with the cameras and strange men in their house 24/7. Mommys attention is focused on her reality show more than her kids, and if the kids are acting out they probably just want her attention. If charlie has video of the kids acting fine, and they are only acting out with denise...UM HELLO ya think thats a coincidence? Denise get over yourself. Charlie's made mistakes but that doesnt mean that he isnt a good father!

Denise, your show backfired. You didn't clear up any rumors you just made yourself look worse. You are so worried about the paparazzi filming you (whom you probabaly called) taking off your top and the e cameras are right there. What is the difference? What's the first thing you do when you get home? Check out to see if your photo made it online. Give it up girl. It is sooo obvious that you love the paparazzi attention and want to keep your name in the spotlight. Now, just take Charlie's money and go away quietly (and Charlie is gross don't get me wrong). People will think highly of you if you bow out gracefully. Be quiet, go away and raise your little girls properly. I doubt you will ever be given any decent movie role so be happy with what you have. You are a pretty girl but very messed up.

I haven’t watched her show. I’m not going to watch her show. Those so-called reality shows are for voyeurs and lonely people with no lives of their own.

It’s obvious this woman is just axe grinding and needs to find a way to be in the spotlight. Too bad she’s using her kids to do it. Of course, her lawyer will represent her for any silly little reason…he’s getting paid to do it. As a mother of 3, all kids cry and pout . All kids act out. It's called playing. That’s what makes them kids. Maybe she should spend more time with them; she might learn something.

Regardless of what anyone thinks of Denise or Charlie, noone really knows what those papers or videos show. Anyone with any legal experience at all knows that an emergency hearing is not that easy to get and you must show substantial reason as to why an emergency hearing should be had. If you're passing judgment on either parent based on a short blog that really tells you nothing about the legal process or what the judge's actual ruling was, then you should pull you're head out of your ass and get a clue! Try picking up an education while you're at it!

It seems to me that Charlie should be asking for full custody of these poor little girls.

This histrionic woman shouldn't be raising children. She makes Britney Spears look like mother of the year.

Kids emulate their parents. What the judge is seeing is in each tape is the behavior of that parent around the children; in the case of the Denise Richards tape ... her bad behavior!
