Denise Richards Hates Charlie’s Sperm

Denise Richards has made a career of airing her grievances against her ex-husband in a very public fashion. During her publicity tour to promote her upcoming reality show, Denise Richards: It’s Complicated, she hit up The Today Show to refute claims that last year she sent Charlie Sheen’s girlfriend, Brooke Mueller, an email requesting a sperm donation.

The email states: “I don’t want to have a baby with Charlie. I am having a baby in the next year. By myself…my girlfriend suggested Charlie be the donor. SO, I did bring this up to him.” During the interview, Richards told Matt Lauer, “It’s a doctored email…I would never send an email to his girlfriend.” She added, “If I wanted anyone’s sperm, I would have asked for Richie [Sambora]’s.”

In response, Charlie promptly released a statement, thus continuing the next round of he-said, she-said. The Two and a Half Men star fumes, “Her claims that her email has been fabricated or altered in anyway to create this story are absurd.”

Sheen then challenged Richards to a duel at high noon to solve their differences once and for all. Well, not really, but he did say, “If any proof can be established that these are not in fact her words and statements verbatim, I openly invite her and would even encourage Ms. Richards to sue me in a court of law.”

Which is almost the same thing.
