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.

i wonder what someone with such a dirty mouth would feel is disturbing behaviour. Its complicated sums her up, shes a dill, and charlie cnat be that much better for being attracted to that kind of craziness.
I would worry about her kids, shes no expert on what is good behavior or not, or even age appropriate, yet she would find every opportunity to make sure contact is difficult. The fact that the judge made no change of orders to custody shows that orders would mostly be about the party is restrained from saying or doing blah blah, because the real problem is the parents relationship not the parent/child relationship

PARENTS NEED TO PUT THEIR HATE FOR EACH OTHER ASIDE AND PUT THE CHILDREN FIRST. MAYBE DENISE HAS SOMETHING TO BE WORRIED ABOUT, HOPEFULLY NOT. WE DON'T KNOW EITHER OF THEM SO HOW CAN ANY OF US JUDGE THEM. SHE FEELS THE KIDS ARE IN DANGER A MOM IS GOING TO PROTECT HER BABIES. THATS DENISE'S JOB.

I have only seen her show a few times. Yes she has a foul mouth, but she seems like she loves her girls and is a good mother. I don’t understand all this hate and she a whore???? How can you hate someone so much you don’t even know???? What happened to thou shall not judge? Anyway it takes allot of energy to have so much hate in your heart and nothing good can come from it. Denise I wish good things.

Come on a emergency hearing right before her last show? When they said in the beginning their may be another
She had to spice it up.Charlie may of had a bad past, but to try to say he would hurt or attack his Children is wrong.
She new him after the first baby but she had another didn't sounds very worried then.
I think she has to be queen bee or she will have a temper tantrum in which if you watched her show you have seen.
She is not that pretty when she is mad. Also how did that 3 year tape come out right when she was mad about the Children necklaces that had to go back to Charlie's, She lost it she has to have control.
Charlie do not respond its all for your attention. Let your lawyer do what you pay him to do, and if it keeps up go for full custody! On the grounds of mental illness....Sissy

One thing the judge messed up on is allowing those kids to be on camera. If they are acting strangely it is because they have a crew of stranger in their house everyday. Kids need stability specially with so many changes this year in their life. Denise is a selfish cow who should have kept her kids out of the media spotlight, and spent time with them one on one not running off to Hawaii so she can be filmed in a bathing suit. I think those kids need to be put in a descent home before they end up a mess when they get older, I mean no way will these actions of the parent not come back and haunt those kids. When they get to school their parents allegation will be thrown at them from mean children, your moms a whore, your dad pays whores. Think of the kids and cool it!!!

OK I HAVE BEEN WATCHING THIS BACK AND FORTH AND IT SEEMS THAT DENISE IS ACCUSING CHARLIE OF BEING IN THE MEDIA ABOUT THIS AND TALKING, BUT IF YOU READ ALL THE BLOGS AND REPORTS ON TMZ ITS DENISE CONSTANTLY GOING TO COURT BUT CALLING THE PRESS TO LET THEM KNOW EXACTLY WHEN SHE WOULD BE ARRIVING AT THE COURTHOUSE WITH HER ATTY'S. ALL CUSTODY AND CHILD'S CASES ARE PROTECTED UNDER CALIFORNIA LAW AND THE COURTS CAN NOT GIVE OUT ANY INFO, AND I HAVE YET TO SEE CHARLIE MENTION HES GOING BACK TO COURT ITS BEEN DENISE. THIS IS A WASHED UP AND LET ME SAY SHE DONT LOOK THAT HOT WANNABE STAR AND HER BOAT SANK WHEN SHE DIVORCED CHARLIE AND SCREWED OVER HER BFF HEATHER BY SLEEPING WITH HER HUSBAND BEFORE DENISE WAS EVEN DIVORCED, LAST TIME I CHECKED THATS WHAT IS COMMONLY CALLED A HOME-WRECKER AND A ^&*(%. I HOPE SHE GETS WHATS COMING TO HER........

The situation between these two has been insanely RIDICULOUS !!

_ It seems as though she is using this show as a tool to "clear" her name, and (similar to Christie Brinkley's divorce) get that "upper hand" publicity wise; Which isn't necessarily a bad thing for her. But it's also backfiring...One segment from the Hawaii trip shows her ongoing drama, and being confronted "right out/harshly" by one of her girlfriends over being a martyr. The trip itself was......let's see....someone is paying for you and your friends to go to Hawaii, in order to model a line of swimsuits--THERE WILL BE CAMERAS.....AND once you signed the releases to the show YOU'VE LOST YOUR RIGHT TO PRIVACY MY FRIEND !!!!

_Thus "idiot savant" on the other end tries to survive mid life crisis through the eyes of his alter ego on "Two and a Half Men". Ironically, he just so "happens" to be married to someone from a TV entertainment show, and showing his "softer side" by hiring female attorneys and going out of "his way" to prove "he's a virginally nice angel."

**it's interesting his original attorney wants out

THEY'RE BOTH IDIOTS !!!
(Denise's dad should be baking cookies with those kids)

I've gone through what Denise is going through, and having a bad divorce will sometimes bring out the worst in you. Mother's are very protective. Denise lets go and acts the way a grown up does when her children aren't around. What the heck is wrong with that and she has friends and family who support and care for her. Let's not even go into the fact that she just lost her mom. Do you even know what that's like when you are also in a bad marriage or having court battles to protect your children. I personally think that she's doing a tremendous job with her kids. If she's out or working, her FAMILY watches those girls. Denise's father is an amazing father and grandfather. If I'd had the support that she does 5 years ago, I would be in the great condition she's in. I'm still in the court system because my ex does NOT do what's in the best interest of the children AND he doesn't even call or see them. I'm forced back into court by the Attorney General's Office because my ex doesn't like to follow the court's rulings. Please believe me when I say that when you make the best out of what you have, focus on the children and still remain who you are, THAT'S in the best interest of the children. Please stop bashing Denise because one day her children will see this stuff and that's not in the best interest of these children.

Oh, and by the way, they are both human and parents to these children, but you don't know who called the media and why. To protect my kids, if it were me....I'd pull out every trick in the book to be sure that the kids were protected and if that meant using my fame or fortune...I WOULD. The vacation/work in Hawaii was also a way to let loose and whether you're a mom or not, you're NEVER a saint....With that said, everyone that talks negatively about people you don't know are even worse...The comments here should be encouraging in such a sad situation for a "family" in a crisis situation....Let's try to support both parents so they will feel even more confident in positive parenting for the children.
