Do you know anyone who has gone through a divorce and lost friends? Maybe you have gone through it yourself…you split from your spouse and not only do you lose family members, share custody of the children and pets, but….now…maybe you have friends that will choose sides and support their spouse of choice!
Well, that is the way i sort of view the fight between duel celebs Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen. It is turning into a battle royale; she said/he said. The things that are being said of one another are ugly. They are mean and they are vicious. There is name calling and finger pointing and childish behavior…all in all…your typical divorce nightmare.
Because both Denise and Charlie are actors they each have their share of “friends”. The court of public opinion is gearing up for a doosey of a declaration of alliance. No…the public really has no say in how the court decides in the custody battle for their children; however, both Denise and Charlie are making sure that we know their business.
I have to say that in most peoples breakdown of marriages it is a long, lonely and painful time for all involved. In the world of celebrity marriages sometimes it is hard to tell who is really hurting going through a divorce and who is just trying to influence public opinion with all of the PR spin-doctoring that is done.
As far as Charlie and Denise go…i have to say that i think that like most families who go through a divorce it is the children who suffer the most. However, i think that both Denise and Charlie are not blameless in the face that they are presenting to the world…it would be wise for them both to remember that someday their girls are going to be old enough to read and hear interviews that they each have done about their marital relationship before and after the divorce.
With Denise putting her life on a reality show…it will all be there in full color for the girls to see and hear. All of their hurts and anger will come through and influence their life choices. Charlie has left a negative and bitter impression about his opinion of Denise in no uncertain terms. He has allegedly called her vile names that most people would not choose to label women no matter how low of an opinion they have…he has allegedly called her very derogatory names and also racist names. He even further lowered many peoples level of respect for him as a person by attacking Denise’s mother who was dying of cancer.
Doesn’t Charlie know that many of his fans/viewers are people who’s lives have been affected by cancer as well? How does he think that makes them feel? It would be really a very healing thing if the judge in charge of their divorce would order them to go into family counseling; even if it was, just for the sake of their children! Live your lives people and move on…time is short…don’t waste it on negative energy trying to get revenge on someone that you pledged your life and love to at one time! Live and let live…give your children at least a minimum of respect for their other parent.
