Charlie Sheen is in full support of his ex-wife Denise Richards’ decision to leave the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after two seasons.
While the Two and Half Men actor supports the move 100%, he also denies having any involvement in Denise’s decision.
“She does what she wants in these matters,” Charlie told Page Six on Wednesday, September 16, via his publicist. “And I applaud her decision of ‘one and done.’”
Charlie and Denise were married from 2002 to 2006 and share two daughters, Sami, 16, and Lola, 15.
Denise previously revealed that she talked to her ex-husband before joining RHOBH in 2019.
“I did talk to him about it because as an actor in this business, I respect his opinion too. So I said, ‘What do you think?’ and he said, ‘I think it could be really cool,’” Denise recalled on Radio Andy. “Even if he said this is the dumbest thing you ever did, I still would have done the show. But it was interesting to get his side of it because I have a lot of respect for him as the father and being in this business for as many years as he has.”
The Wild Things actress ultimately did join RHOBH during season 9, but her time on Real Housewives didn’t last long.
On September 9, Denise confirmed that she wouldn’t be back for season 11 of RHOBH.
While Denise has yet to open up about her exit from Real Housewives, Andy Cohen revealed that Bravo wanted Denise back for season 11 but couldn’t reach an agreement that worked for both sides.
“I’m just upset that we couldn’t reach an agreement for next season, I’m kind of living in that sadness. We were negotiating a deal with her, and we couldn’t reach an agreement on the deal,” Andy revealed during an interview with his assistant Daryn Carp on PEOPLE’s Reality Check. “She has a family and kids. Whatever happened or didn’t happen, I would imagine that it’s something she didn’t really care to discuss on a television show.”
Rumors have been swirling that Denise demanded an “excessive” amount of money for season 11 and that Bravo wasn’t willing to cough up the cash.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is expected to return for season 11 in mid-2021.
