Denise Richards on 'The View': 'This is Charlie's lifestyle. He makes no bones about it. It is what it is.'

When Barbara Walters broke the ice, asking about the recent difficulties of her ex-husband, Richards admitted that she wasn’t surprised by Charlie Sheen’s troubles, saying, “This is Charlie’s lifestyle. He makes no bones about it. It is what it is.” When she declined to speculate on the root cause of Sheen’s issues – suggesting politely that the ladies invite him to their show and ask him themselves – Walters attempted a different tact: What do you tell the children?

“What can you say?” Richards replied. “It’s a very difficult situation. This is something I’ve dealt with for years; this is not a new situation. There are times where his life is more colorful than others, more public than others, and as the kids get older, it’s a difficult thing. I’m learning as I go too. I have never had to deal with this, and this was a subject I had hoped to talk with my children about as they got older. But it’s hard.”
