Denise Richards

She Gives DCFS Proof ...

Brooke Blocks Urgent Therapy for Twins

EXCLUSIVE

1106-charlie-brooke-denise-0
Denise Richards was armed with an email when she went to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services -- an email which she apparently believed would expose Brooke Mueller as a terrible parent.

The email -- obtained by TMZ -- was sent by Dr. Jay Gordon, an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at UCLA Medical School.  The email and documents obtained by TMZ make it clear ...  Brooke is blocking psychological treatment for Bob and Max. 

The email, dated August 23, 2013, reads:

   -- "As we have discussed, because of recent events involving the boys' behavior I think that they need urgent evaluation.  I am very concerned about their escalating violent actions; The apparent lack of understanding of the consequences and the safety of others is most worrisome.  I would like them seen by Dr. Alessia Gottlieb for a complete developmental and behavioral assessment."

TMZ broke the story ... Denise told DCFS that Brooke was blocking the treatment described in the email.  As we first reported, Denise said she could no longer care for the twins with such interference by Brooke, given their violent behavior toward animals and people.

Wow ...    

Good grief. Those poor boys. I hope they are placed in a loving and stable environment away from their bio parents. Neither is healthy.

If it was so important to Denise, then why did Denise wait until November to do something and not inform DCFS in August when this Alleged Email was written?

At least Denise is trying to get the boys help. Looks like to me Brooke is a bad mother with a lot of problems she should not be allowed around the boys at all.

Wow ...    

How does that email prove Brooke is blocking anything? That is merely a recommendation, it doesn't every begin to show who is for or against it. (not saying Brooke isn't blocking it) Just asking. This one sided "proof" delivered by Charlie is BS.

These boys are in serious trouble and need to be taken away from Brooke and Charlie for good. A stable home with intense therapy is needed and even then they may not be healthy!!!

Seriously wtf    

1. DCS needs to give Denise permanent custody - not just guardianship, with complete authority to decide their medical and psychological needs. If Denise will even consent to this at this point.
.
2. Charlie needs to hire a) a full time psychologist to work with the boys everyday. b) extra nannies to help Denise care for 5 kids. c) a tutor for homeschooling for a year
.
3. Only supervised visits (if any) for a few hours a week at their home for Brooke.
.
4. Charlie - an arrangement worked out where Charlie can visit his daughters without an independent monitor but still have a monitor for the boys. Not sure how this would work but Denise seems to want Charlie to be able to visit under her monitoring for convenience sake. If Denise feels comfortable with that, then fine.
.
5. The boys health should not be held to the whims of Charlie's mania nor Brooke's drug addiction. Brooke merely wants the child support at the expense of her kids well-being if needed. This is abuse and neglect and should be grounds to strip her of any custody.
.
6. I would like to know if Brooke chipped in any of her 55k child support to Denise to help care for the kids?

Silly Denise. She thinks the State is there to help? LOL
See Kids Killed." Reality Check. Family Court is a con. A full-on employment field with zero oversight. None. Bumpkiss.

Why are you posting these young boys private medical/psychiatric eval information? Disgusting. Even more disgusting is the people who are releasing this information to TMZ in order to prove their point to the media.

Charlie still needs to explain why DCFS is favoring Brook over the Kids. DCFS back in may took the Kids away from brook and gave them to Charlie's Ex Wife who is not a Relative of the Boys, Because Charlie wanted nothing to do with them. DCFS said they will not let Brook anywhere near the Boys Until they felt her Drug Treatment is Working. So Far Denise and Charlie have not given DCFS sufficient evidence that Brook is a Bad mother. There is still no evidence that Brook Burned her child it looks like an a rash that was already there or Dermatitis. In this Alleged Email it does not show a response from Brook, and it does not give specific as of who, what, when, where Denise Decided to keep the two Boys Putting her 3 Kids in Denise's words in Danger, So the Only Bad Mother So Far is Denise Richards.

Brooke has shown nothing but selfish behavior since she selfishly became pregnant while being actively addicted to drugs. At no point has she shown herself to be worthy of parenting these poor children. She needs to be removed from their lives - forever.
