In our society, there seems to be an unwritten rule that when a breakup occurs, it’s in your best interest not to be friends or associate with your ex. This notion is stressed even more when the breakup is a result of abuse.
It’s easy to understand why you wouldn’t want to be around the person who abused you, so when news hit that Denise Richards was “excited” to be part of Charlie Sheen’s new show, Anger Management, an inevitable question mark formed and cemented itself in our brains.
Although Richards claims that Sheen never hit her or abused her physically, the mental abuse from his “temper” and “sharp tongue” combined with his violent threats were enough for her to file for divorce. So why would she want, let alone be excited, to work with him? Denise is not the only female celebrity making news by working with an abusive ex.
