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.”
Kyrie Irving is reportedly considering taking a genetically modified plant-based Covid-19 vaccine to return to the NBA.
According to the NY Post, “people close to” Irving say he could be convinced to get vaccinated if a plant-based Covid-19 vaccine is approved.
Irving, who is a vegan, was forced to sit out the 2021-22 season and forfeit millions in salary and bonuses after he refused to get the Covid-19 mRNA shots.
A New York City mandate prohibits the superstar guard from playing home games at Barclays Center. The Nets suspended him from playing road games if he is unvaccinated.
Researchers are working on genetically modified plant-based vaccines that they claim are effective against the coronavirus.
A Canadian company has reportedly developed the world’s first 2-dose plant-based vaccine that could be approved for emergency use by the end of the year.
The 2-dose injections reportedly showed a high efficacy rate against Covid, according to Quebec company, Medicago.
The plant-based vaccine is made by inserting a genetic code into bacteria, then a tobacco plant is soaked in the modified bacteria. The genetic code (similar to mRNA) “teaches” the plant to make a virus-like protein which is then used in the vaccine.
The virus-like particles derived from the tobacco plant is said to stimulate the body’s immune system to make antibodies.
Clinical tests showed 71 percent efficacy against all variants and 75.3 percent against Delta when enhanced by GlaxoSmithKline’s Covid-19 booster.
The plant-based vaccine’s efficacy against the new Omicron variant is unknown, according to Yahoo News.
On Tuesday, December 7, Khloé responded to a follower who accused her of looking uninterested as Berry, 55, accepted the People’s Icon Award at the show this week.
“Okay who saw that ‘I don’t care’ sorta look on @khloekardashian when @halleberry was on stage, not cool man,” one person wrote on Twitter.
To that, Kardashian replied, “That’s disappointing my face gave that expression. Halle Berry is such a force. Absolutely Stunning and beyond talented.”
That’s when she hinted at the drama in her personal life, writing, “Tbh I’m barely in my own body right now. Please don’t read into anything. Also please don’t tear me apart because you assumed something.”
This response from the reality star comes as she stepped out for the awards show less than one week after Thompson was named in a paternity suit filed by Maralee Nichols. In the suit, the Houston-based personal trainer alleged that the basketball player is the father of her newborn son, who was conceived in March–when him and Khloé were still together.
Tristan has since filed a gag order, asking the judge on Tuesday to prevent Nichols from speaking publicly about the case. As for Kardashian, her Twitter clapback about Halle Berry is the first time she’s seemingly acknowledged the drama.
For the first time since ten people died at Travis Scott’s Astroworld concert, the rapper sat down for a nearly hour-long interview to tell his side of the story.
Travis Scott says he’s been on an “emotional roller coaster” since tragedy struck his Astroworld Festival in Texas in early November. Ten people were killed during the concert, and dozens more were left injured. Travis faced extreme backlash for not stopping his concert amidst the tragedy playing out in the audience, but in his first interview since the event, he maintains that he had no idea how bad of a turn things had taken while he was onstage.
“I didn’t know the exact details until [after my set], minutes before the press conference that I figured out exactly what happened,” Travis says in his conversation with Charlamagne Tha God. “And even at that moment you’re like….what?” He also insists that he would have stopped the show if he knew that things were getting so out of hand in the crowd. “Anytime you hear something like that, you want to stop the show,” he explains. “You want to make sure fans get the proper attention they need. Anytime I could see anything like that, I did [stop]. I stopped it a couple of times to just make sure everybody was okay. I just really go off the fans’ energy as a collective — call and response. I just didn’t hear that [this time].”
In the interview, Travis also walks Charlamagne through what he saw onstage in front of that huge crowd that night to paint a better picture of why he couldn’t tell what was happening. “You can only help what you can see, and whatever you’re told,” he adds. “Whenever somebody tells you to stop, you just stop.”
Charlamagne points out that Travis has “encouraged” his fans to “rage” at his concerts in the past, but he says that he has always tried to do so in a safe manner. “It’s supposed to be about having fun,” Travis says. “It’s not about harm. It’s about just letting go and having fun. Help others, love each other. It’s not about harm. The show isn’t just rambunctious for an hour, that’s not what it is.”
The rapper, who is expecting his second child with Kylie Jenner, says he’s done a “lot of grieving” while trying to wrap his head around the situation. “I really just wanted to be there and wish I could kind of just hold everyone and heal them, talk to them, have conversations,” he admits, regarding his fans and their loved ones. “It really hurts, man.”
Now, Travis is committed to making sure that nothing like this happens again in the future. “For the first couple of weeks, it was just me sitting down and channeling these emotions and remembering, no one’s going to be a voice for these people,” he reveals. “I have to be a voice so this doesn’t happen at shows in the future, period, and figure out the solution to ensure people’s safety.”
He also hopes to get to the bottom of what exactly happened to lead to such a horrific tragedy taking place. “I have a responsibility to figure out what happened here,” he says. “I have a responsibility to figure out the solution. Hopefully this takes the first step toward us as artists having more of that insight into what’s going on.”
