Denise is sugar coating her divorce.
What she has admitted to getting out of Sheen (not counting the stuff that she denies) is more per year of marriage than Camille got per year of marriage. The difference being Denise is getting it mostly in the form of child support and housing that is supposed to be in trust for the kids. (She denies getting a cut of 2 1/2 men which Sheen and his lawyer have claimed she did - which Sheen...so benefit of the doubt goes to Denise)
That house she bought in his neighborhood because its so important to her that he is a good father with a close relationship with the kids because of her own relationship with her father... Is that the one he bought them to live in that he turned around and evicted them from, forcing her to rent, so she sued him because he hadn't paid her for the purchase of a new house and back child support?
Kind of weird that Denise volunteered to reduce child support in the same year she was suing him for back child support and the house thing.
If you read articles from the time period about their divorce, its characterized as the worst ever in Hollywood making Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin's divorce look better by comparison.
Now I've got no problem at all with any of the above. She was divorcing Charlie Sheen. I'm completely willing to think that everything she did was to protect her kids and there is no reason they shouldn't have support commensurate with their Dad's wealth and earnings. She was totally in the right and he seemed to be on the attack.
I'm even ok with her creating a fiction about what her divorce and co-existence with her ex has been like if it lessens the burden of it all on her kids. But I wouldn't be surprised if her decision making regarding settlements was heavily influenced by making sure that custody went in a way that protected her very little children against a father who was totally out of control and a danger to them. So good for Denise having her priorities straight if that was what was going on.
But she doesn't actually have credibility with me that the way she says her divorce settlement went was what she wanted out of it and would have demanded if circumstances had been different. She is working hard to present herself in the best light even if she has to massage the truth to get there. So maybe don't say anyone that decided to go for a 50/50 settlement in a community property state is a ""greedy fucking whore".
