Denise Richards has two kids, Sami and Lola, with ex-husband Charlie Sheen, and a third child, Eloise, that she adopted after the stars split up.
Denise Richards, 50, is a proud mother to three daughters: Sami Sheen, 17, Lola Rose Sheen, 16, and Eloise Joni Richards. The actress and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum welcomed her eldest two daughters during her high-profile marriage to Charlie Sheen, which lasted from 2002 to 2005. A few years after her drama-filled split from Charlie, Denise adopted daughter Eloise as a single parent. Denise has since gotten remarried to Aaron Phypers, and together the couple are now Eloise’s legal parents.
As fans know, Denise’s relationship with Charlie was tumultuous, both during and after their marriage. Recently, Charlie was granted approval by a judge to no longer pay child support for Sami and Lola. This legal development came after Sami reportedly moved in with Charlie due to a disagreement “over her mother’s rules.” Below, everything you need to know about Denise Richards’ three children.
Denise and Charlie’s eldest child, daughter Sami, was born on March 9, 2004. When Sami was only 1 years old, Denise filed a restraining order against Charlie — marking the most turbulent moment of the couple’s marriage yet. Denise officially filed for divorce the following month, and the divorce was finalized on November 30, 2006. Following a gnarly custody battle, Denise was given primary physical custody of their two kids, while Charlie got visitation rights.
But in the years since, Sami has spent time with both her parents. She appeared on RHOBH when Denise was a main cast member on seasons 9 and 10 of the hit Bravo series. As for Charlie, the Two and a Half Men actor was seen in a photo at Sami’s 17th birthday, alongside Lola and Denise. Sami’s bond with her father even transpired to the teen’s recent decision to move in with her father. A source told HollywoodLife in September, “Sami is a teenager, who didn’t like her mother’s rules. Like any mother and household, there are rules in Denise’s. She and Charlie have different rules and styles of parenting and [they] didn’t see eye to eye. Sami decided she liked Charlie’s rules better and wanted to go and live with her father, where she currently is staying. Denise is incredibly saddened by all of this, but knows she is doing her best as a mother.”
Lola Rose Sheen
Lola, Denise and Charlie’s second child together, was born on June 1, 2005. While Denise was pregnant with Lola, she had filed the restraining order against Charlie. Lola was less than two years old when her parents were officially divorced. In the following years, Lola, like Sami, seemingly spent most of her time living with Denise, while also seeing Charlie on occasion. But both girls started spending more time with their famous dad as time went on, culminating in Sami recently moving in with her dad permanently. Lola, meanwhile, has been said to be splitting her time evenly between her parents.
“Lola splits time between both Charlie and Denise’s homes,” our insider said, “but Denise has been the primary caretaker for the girls for years. Denise is very saddened by all of this. She’s an incredible mother who loves her kids and would do anything in the world for them.”
Eloise Joni Richards
Over 4 years after Denise split from Charlie, the actress decided to adopt a third child, daughter Eloise. Denise adopted Eloise at birth following a two-year-long process, and gave her the middle name Joni after Denise’s mother. Eloise has Chromosome 8, Monosomy 8p, a rare chromosomal disorder that causes developmental delays.
Denise previously gushed over her youngest child in a May 2021 interview with Parents.com. “We’ve grown with her since she was a baby,” Denise said. “But she’s a sweet little angel and the happiest little girl and the littlest things make her so happy.” Denise also shared that Eloise was nicknamed the “animal whisperer” because of her communication tactics with the family’s pets. “She communicates in other ways with our animals. It is so sweet and so special to see that relationship,” Denise said.
Denise initially raised Eloise solo, but that all changed when she married Aaron in September 2018. After a few months, Denise revealed that Aaron was officially adopting Eloise as his own daughter. “He’s amazing as a daddy,” she said on The Talk in May 2019. “He’s amazing with my daughters and he’s adopting my youngest so it’s really great.”
Mariah Carey is “still mad” at Nick Cannon for the birthday gifts he bought their twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
Nick and Mariah, who divorced in 2016, had agreed not to buy Moroccan and Monroe cell phones when they first asked for the risky devices at age 8.
However, the media mogul went back on their “deal” to give the twins cell phones when they were older.
NGRE / BACKGRID
“The Masked Singer” host asked Mariah if he could give the twins cell phones at age 10. But Mariah said no.
So Nick decided to give Roc and Roe the phones anyway when they turned 10 in April.
Speaking in a preview clip from his eponymous talk show, Nick – who has seven kids with four women – said:
“My oldest twins Roc and Roe wanted a cell phone at eight.
“I was all for it but Mariah was like, ‘Uh-huh they aren’t going to be Googling us, learning about all their new brothers and sisters, no we aren’t playing.’
“I respected it at eight, but then we made a deal and said at 10 then they can have it, (but) Mariah still said no.
“So at 10, I snuck and I still got them the cell phones for their birthday.”

The star said he left the gift amongst other presents at the twins’ “amazing” birthday party, knowing his ex-wife wouldn’t be happy.
He laughingly continued:
“We had this amazing party with jump jumps, their friends came, it was so amazing. Then (when) it was time to open the gifts, I was like ‘I’m going to leave these right here and tell your mama I’ll be back.’
Candiace Dillard believes insecurities are at the root of her issues with Mia Thornton.
Following their salad fight on Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac, Candiace slammed Mia for projecting a narrative of intimidation, claiming that when it comes to the series’ newest cast member’s supposed businesses, her name isn’t on any of her stuff.
“Mia comes in and, you know, I’m irritated but I’m still willing to converse about it and maybe put it to bed,” Candiace recalled on the October 3 episode of the RHOP: After Show. “But it was clear that Mia, she had other plans. She woke up and chose chaos that morning and wanted to have beef with me.”
According to Candiace, she’s sick and tired of Mia targeting people’s businesses on the show, especially considering the alleged state of her own.
“All of that was a projection because she doesn’t really feel like she’s a boss, she doesn’t really own that business. Her name ain’t on none of that stuff,” Candiace explained. “And she’s not really secure in who she is.”
As Candiace noted, none of the other women came into the RHOP cast accusing others of being intimidated by them because they are all secure in who they are.
“The fact that Mia has come into this space and is projecting this narrative of intimidation… B-tch, bye. Go back to the strip club. Maybe they’ll empower you in there. Because we’re not doing that,” Candiace stated. “I don’t have room to empower somebody that is steady putting this idea that we all want to be you, we’re all intimidated by you onto us. That’s all your stuff, girl, and you need to go and resolve in therapy on somebody’s couch.”
Also on the RHOP: After Show, Karen looked back on the moment in which she walked in on Candiace and Mia going head-to-head during their vacation in the Eastern Shore.
“It was too far left and for me, I do believe Candiace said something about [Mia’s] mom again and for me, I knew it was a done deal, that something was going to pop off. My hope was that it didn’t get physical and thank God it did not,” she said.
While Karen tried to advise Candiace to get to know Mia’s mom’s situation before speaking on it, that didn’t happen. Luckily, as Karen noted, Mia is a “grown woman” and didn’t take things to the next level.
“Thank God Mia’s a grown woman and tossed a salad… You just don’t disrespect one’s mother,” Karen said.
Meanwhile, in another rant against Mia, Candiace said that the “big b-tch” had been coming for everyone in their group and added that she was “not sorry” for how she reacted.
“I’m not sorry I responded the way I did because Mia wanted smoke,” she explained.
The Real Housewives of Potomac season six airs Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo.

Phara made a grand entrance in the third episode of ‘Foundation.’ HL spoke EXCLUSIVELY with Kubbra Sait about her fierce character her and what Phara really wants.
Don’t mess with Phara. Kubbra Sait’s character showed up at the very end of Foundation’s third episode, and her story is just beginning. HollywoodLife spoke EXCLUSIVELY with Kubbra about Phara wants and how far she’ll go to get it.
“I think she wants redemption. She wants justice when the injustice has been done to her,” Kubbra told HollywoodLife. “We’ve seen what injustice the Empire’s done to her planet, her people. So where did she come from? There needs to be motivation also. It’s interesting for us to find out in the first few moments before Phara arrives that everybody in Terminus is actually concerned about spotting an Anacreon spaceship in the Periphery because the Anacreons are exiled. So, why is that? But the good thing is that everybody knows that there is a threat. Everybody knows that this is the build-up for something massive, something huge to come and to look forward to in the coming episodes.”
When we first meet Phara, she has her weapon drawn on Salvor Hardin. From the get-go, Kubbra loved Phara’s “tenacity.” She noted, “She has this spirit of never giving up, and it could come at the cost of anything.”
Going forward, you’ll see a lot more scenes between Salvor and Phara. “I think we’re in love [laughs]. I don’t think we can do without each other. I think Salvor and Phara are going to be a very interesting duo to look out for,” Kubbra told HollywoodLife.
Kubbra appreciates that the show features an international cast from all walks of life. “I think that is so thrilling because it just catapults us into a different galaxy with no judgment as a whole,” Kubbra said. “And we’re all experiencing this world together and making something out of it that can be kind of threaded together and woven together to tell one story. That’s fascinating for me as an actor and as a performer.”
Foundation airs weekly on Apple TV+. The series has recently been renewed for a second season.

Rising rap star and Roc Nation signee Kalan.FrFr talks with HL about his new ‘Role Models’ music video, how LA hip-hop is keeping it ‘real,’ and why he’d love to work with ‘hard’ women like Jazmine Sullivan.
“I wouldn’t really even say I’m special. I’m just blessed,” Kalan.FrFr says during an EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife. His fans and followers might disagree with that assessment. The Carson, California native has been working hard to become one of the next big names in hip-hop. After building a buzz on the back of his 2018 releases (Hurt and TwoFr), Kalan.FrFr. signed with Roc Nation, put out his debut album (TwoFr 2 and the recently released extended version), and was named one of Billboard’s Emerging LA artists for 2021. He also just teamed with Bobby Fishscale on the new song/video “Role Models.” When Kalan says “the sky’s the limit” to his success during the interview, it feels like he’s not lying. There’s a confidence and a coolness to Kalan.FrFr, a natural charm that hints that this man’s about to blow up in ways no one has thought.
So, how is he going to get to that next level? A well-timed, high-profile collab might do the trick, and as Kalan tells HollywoodLife, he has a few people he’d love to work with. “I got a couple of songs I want Jazmine Sullivan on. She hard,” he says when asked if he would work with female rappers/singers in the future. “I like her voice. But like I like a lot of female artists. I like Kehlani. I like Jhene Aiko. I like Summer Walker. And you know, it’s just, you know, if, if I’m lucky enough to be able to work with them one day. I hope we just make some dope music.”
If there’s something Kalan knows, it’s how to make some “dope music.” That, and being 100% authentic. “I like to keep it real, you know,” he says. Realness is important to Kalan, who emphasizes that his music shows “my real feelings, my real emotions — you know, I’m really Kalan. That’s my real name. We just stand on everything we believe in. That’s the part of the ‘too for real’ movement. I’m from Los Angeles, California, and you know we just hold it down [in LA.] You know, just everything that got to do with for real.”
Kalan also expanded on the LA scene. “There’s a lot of hard artists out of LA,” he says. “It’s not our fault that we get stuck in the box. It’s just we just got a different sound, a different way of living. It’s just because of where we come from….it just happens that everybody wants to come to LA. So we get hit with everybody’s music too. You know what I mean? So as long as we just tapping in and just make sure with other people, the sky’s the limit. It’s the beginning. It’s the expansion and the growth — it’s like, there’s no limit on that. No cap.”
During Kalan’s talk with HollywoodLife, the “Never Lose You” rapper discussed coming close to death while filming the video, his upcoming tour, and what fans can expect next.
Kate Upton showed off her incredible figure in a sexy two-piece blue lingerie set in a sultry new photo.
Can Kate Upton get any sexier? The 29-year-old model looked absolutely fabulous when she showed off her toned figure in a blue lace Yamamay lingerie set. Kate wore the plunging V-neck Triangle Lace Bralette without underwires and paired it with the matching high-waisted sheer Brazillian Briefs. Her toned abs and ample cleavage were on display while she chose to go makeup-free.
Kate posted the photo with the caption, “Feeling strong, sexy and comfy in my @yamamayofficial. Happy 20th anniversary! #AuguriYamamay #20YearsofDreams” Aside from the photo she posted, she also shared a video to her Instagram stories rocking the same set. In the video, she said, “Happy birthday Yamamay, whose been celebrating women for 20 years,” while smiling from ear to ear at the camera.
If there’s one thing for sure about Kate, it’s that she’s always showing off her body in sexy photos on Instagram. Just the other day, she posted a photo of herself lounging in the ocean while rocking a metallic gold swimsuit.
When Kate isn’t stripping down to lingerie and bikinis, the mother-of-one is usually dressed down to hang out with her adorable daughter, Genevieve, 3, who she shares with her husband, Justin Verlander.
The happy family was just out in Aspen when Kate opted to wear a double-denim ensemble featuring light-wash skinny jeans and a matching button-down chambray shirt. She accessorized with a pair of Nike Air Max Sean Wotherspoon Sneakers and Le Specs X Adam Selma the Last Lolita Sunglasses.
‘Teen Mom’ star Catelynn Lowell has opened up about her relationship with eldest daughter Carly’s parents, who adopted her in 2009.
Teen Mom OG star CatelynnLowell has been a fixture on the reality TV scene since 2009, when she was pregnant with her daughter Carly. The 29-year-old Michigan native, who put her eldest child up for adoption, recently revealed she and her husband TylerBaltierra, 29, have a “good relationship” with adoptive parents Brandon and Teresa. “They are her parents. They get to make all the decisions for her and rightfully so,” she told Us Weekly on October 6.
“Relationships are hard any which way. So it’s just all about, like, growing and learning and maneuvering.” Catelynn and Tyler have since welcomed daughters Novalee, 6, Vaeda, 2, and RyaRose, 1 month, but still have a relationship with Carly. “I feel like whatever happens, I have to kind of, like, filter through Brandon and Teresa first,” Tyler said of their dynamic during an episode of Teen Mom earlier this year.
The proud dad admitted he sometimes feels “inferior” to her adoptive parents. “I don’t trust what I’m gonna say sometimes. It’s just very difficult to navigate and feel close in a relationship when you have to second guess your approach and delivery all the time,” said at the time, adding, “Me and Catelynn have talked about it many times, we’re almost 30 now and we still feel, like, this inferior position. I don’t want it to come across like that, but at the end of the day, the reality is, I cannot get to Carly unless it’s going through Brandon and Teresa.”
The reality TV star also told the outlet that Carly is yet to meet their newborn baby girl, Rya. “We have sent her mom and dad pictures and stuff like that. She’s seen her, but not in person yet.” Tyler also shared a photo of his baby girl to Instagram, which showed her resting on his chest.
“There is no better feeling in the world than hearing your baby’s little breathing sync with yours as both of your heartbeats do the same through the warmth of your skin as it touches theirs. I’m head over heels in love,” he wrote.
Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber truly are the most fashionable mother-daughter duo in Hollywood. See the photo that proves it!
Kaia Gerber didn’t just get her good-looks from her mom Cindy Crawford — she got her taste in fashion, as well. 20-year-old Kaia and her 55-year-old supermodel mother looked like the fashion icons they are when the duo wore matching leather jackets and denim jeans to the Alanis Morrissette concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. And clearly that combination of jacket-jeans ensemble looks good on any generation, because both Kaia and Cindy absolutely rocked their outfits.
To go along with the stylish jackets, the related models each wore a white shirt, denim jeans, and black boots. Talk about twinning! It’s worth noting, though, that Kaia opted for a lighter pair of jeans than Cindy, who added to her darker shade of pants with a black Gucci belt. Kaia’s look also differentiated from her mom’s a bit thanks to the printed scarf that Cindy wrapped around her neck, while Kaia had a dark green Celine bag hanging on her shoulder.
This is certainly not the first time that Kaia — who is the daughter of Cindy and Casamigos founder Rande Gerber — has twinned with her mom at a public function. At the A Sense Of Home charity gala in November 2019, Kaia and Cindy matched in chic and stylish black outfits. Kaia’s ensemble featured a runway worthy top, an embellished bell bottom dress pant, and white blazer, while Cindy stunned in an over-the-knee dress with an animal print pattern, and a leather jacket draped around her shoulders.
Kaia’s constantly been compared to mother, which she discussed with Vogue in the publication’s Oct. 2019 issue. “From day one, people in the industry were often taken aback by my resemblance to my mom,” the American Horror Story actress said. “As I get older, it happens even more, and it’s not just a visual thing: It’s everything from our mannerisms to our voices…It used to be that I didn’t see it at all, but now I will look at a picture and have to take a moment before realizing which one of us it is,” she added.
