Charlie, Denise and Brooke

Children Services Tries to Mediate Custody WAR

EXCLUSIVE

Brooke Mueller and Denise Richards are locked in a conference room right now ... as officials from the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services try to force a truce in their war over Bob and Max ... but Charlie Sheen was a no-show.

Sources connected with the warring families tell TMZ -- Dr. Charles Sophy, the Medical Director for DCFS -- called the meeting and wants Denise, Brooke and Charlie to come face-to-face to deal with what has become a child-rearing crisis.

You may remember Dr. Sophy -- he's a highly-respected shrink who was a key player in the Michael Jackson molestation trial in 2005. 

We're told Charlie was invited but didn't attend -- we don't know why.

The goal of the meeting -- to figure out a custody arrangement that keeps Denise in the picture and gives Brooke sufficient parental rights.

As we first reported ... Denise feels that she can't continue on as the temporary guardian of the troubled twins with Brooke constantly blocking her ability to seek treatment for some serious psychological problems the twins are experiencing.

Maybe Selma Blair'd agree to raise Bob and Max.


Would it kill Charlie to ask.

The meeting's not important to Charlie.


But he has minimum eleven people here - on the payroll - working the comments, likes and hates button.

I'm pssd because since grad school I've been to 100's of meetings like this - early morning - didn't necessarily WANT to be there - but was never late - never called off or in - forever worked around a therapists' convenience/schedule. 100's.

PEEKERBOO...I accidently reported you...I meant to click on "reply" and I hit "report" instead. Sorry 'bout that. Yep...Chuckles SHOULD be declared "imcompetent"...that should be no problem since even a third grader can see that Chuckles is firing on only one cylinder.

Meetings like these... are where the rubber meets the road - they tell the therapists' and people involved you're in it for the long haul ...and care.


I laud the Doctor, I laud Denise, and I laud Brooke.

I don't understand how anyone would even consider giving those boys back to their mother. What happened to the earlier DCS statements that she would not get those back for at least a year of sobriety after her rehab stint. Denise has temporary custody and should not have to get Brooke's agreement regarding any medical or therapy care for those kids. I thought Brooke had lost her rights. I think her big push is if she has the kids she gets her $$ in full from Charlie not the reduced amount she is getting now.

There is No Judge that would find Charlie in Violation of the Restraining order to show up at this Mediation with DCFS over his Kids. Bottom Line Charlie just did not want to show up.

Could he be a no show due to the fact there is a restraining order?

Denise is the only sane one in the bunch. Let Denise get those boys help before they turn in to the next set of Menendez brothers.
