Brooke Mueller

Denise Is the Best Mom

for My Boys Right Now

5/4/2013 1:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0504-brooke-mueller-denise-richards-tmzBrooke Mueller is thankful Denise Richards is the one watching her boys while she's getting professional help ... and sources close to Brooke tell TMZ she's glad they ended up with Denise ... instead of her own mother. 

As we previously reported, Mueller's 4-year-old twins with Charlie Sheen, Bob and Max, were taken Thursday night after the L.A. County D.C.F.S. decided Mueller's home was an "unsafe environment" due to her suspected drug use.

According to our sources, Brooke feels Denise is a great parent and will give her boys everything they need while she seeks help. We're told Brooke is grateful to Denise and knowing her boys are in good hands is allowing her to focus on herself and get better.

We're told the decision to leave the kids with Denise did not sit well with Brooke's mother, who felt she should have taken them. But our sources say the boys have never spent extended time with Brooke's mother and Brooke is glad that DCFS placed them with Denise (not to mention their half-sisters as well).

It seems everyone is being sensible (except Brooke's mother) and putting the boys first in what could have turned into a horrible custody battle with so much dirt being dished on each parent. Denise has reminded people that in marriage breakups and parental lapses the children come first .

ShShe has to be bipolar or something, she unbalanced. She doesn't need to be dragging any kids along in her mess of a life. Denise is a wonderful woman to take these kids in and give them a loving home.

Friggin so sad, I'm not a sensitive guy, but this brings a tear to my eye, I can relate my mom was sick with Kidney disease and had to be hospitalized, I live with her sister which was good, I feel bad for the kids

Kudos to Denise, sad that Charlie isn't stable or sober enough himself to take the kids in. Hope Brooke gets the help she needs so she can be there for her children.

Brooke's mother has denied her daughter's drug problem for years, even giving interviews to say so. Props to Denise for stepping up and good for Brooke realizing that. Addicts usually aren't quick to realize the helpful.

It's nice everyone seems to agree Denise is the best choice. At least the kids will be safe.
