Denise Richards Craves Attention…and, Why is This Shocking?
Since her two young children, Sam and Lola, are also appearing, Richards has received a lot of flack for this new series. One critic, who could stand to shut his, dare I say, profuse and floppy gums, Mr. Perez Hilton, has made it clear that he despises Richards. (And we care…because?) Here’s the big surprise and apparently big “news:” Richards is now a reality star “whore” who craves attention. Wow. Shocking.
While I am certainly no fan of Richards, I also am not sure why people seem to be so aghast by her decision to star in a show with her children. This lack of surprise is not related to the theory that Richards finds herself a target because of the obvious and inherent sexism of American culture, a problem that is particularly bad when it comes to scrutinizing female celebs vs. their male counterparts. In this case, I think, quite frankly, the overwhelming degree of anti-Richards sentiments should be considered from an entirely non-gendered perspective, and since she is ENORMOUSLY important in the scheme of cosmic things (forget about those recent monumental tragedies and staggering loss of souls in Asia), this new show deserves further attention.
(Un)Concealing One’s Scumminess
Richards managed to appear (gasp!) dignified on the Larry King Live Show, but that level of professional aloofness went poof! a few days ago. Here’s the back story. According to the Sheen camp, Richards texted (they even have evidence!) her sorrowful painfully gaunt ex-husband recently, asking for sperm for a third child. This is the man, mind you, who has silk boxer shorts with the saying “M’Sheen” stitched above his you-know-what region. Although this grimy piece of evidence – said boxer shorts – may seem gratuitous, it proves something important.
Such infinitesimal and unconcealed clues – a pair of undergarments or something else hidden – reveal something sinister in this tireless mud-slinging battle of Richards vs. Sheen. In short, they’re both pretty scummy. It’s not a matter of the media unfairly portraying them, attacking one, while sympathizing with the other, etc. If an ex-husband has a pair of boxers with this saying, even after the fact, it’s should also raise questions about the ex-wife’s character, too.
While some may disagree with that type of assertion and refute the link between Sheen’s unsavory boxers and Richards’s character, here’s another piece of evidence. Richards couldn’t maintain a type of dignity during this latest blow-out. Her earlier appearance on Larry King’s show concealed her true pettiness. Richards replied publicly to Sheen’s claims in the highly-esteemed Page Six rag. (Yes, please make note of the paradoxical description).
In response to Sheen’s claims that she wanted his fertile liquids, and stooping to his level (Insert: below that of a gutter), Richards blasted him, saying, “”I don’t want Charlie’s prostitute-tranny-infested sperm. I have two beautiful kids. We’ll leave it at that. I am so over him. He’s the one who can’t move on. He’s disgusting and he’s hit an all-time low.”
Granted, Sheen did tell her that he hopes she dies from cancer, as her mom did, but who would refer to an ex’s sperm as “prostitute-tranny-infested?” Not only that, who would say, “I don’t want my [ex’s] prostitute-tranny-infested sperm” and then follow it up with a remark about having two lovely kids, spawned by, none other than, said man whose sperm carries germs from hos and transsexuals? Not the response that one would expect from a person “over” an ex or who feigns propriety.
It’s all quite confusing. Before spluttering like the two rivals I’ve discussed above, I’ll close here.
I’d advise Richards to consider a new publicist. The present one has given her lines that only serve to debase her character, making her just as pathetic and ugly as her arch nemesis, not to mention father of her “two beautiful children”.
