The actress was married to Sheen from 2002 to 2006. She has since talked about protecting her children from what’s been going on with Sheen.

“There’s a lot that the kids don’t know about their dad, and I want to keep it that way,” she said on the show, according to Us Weekly. “Even though he’s Charlie Sheen, that is still, to them, their dad. I never talk badly about him and I want him to be part of their lives because I met a lot of the women that Charlie entertained and a lot of them had father-daughter issues. And I do not want that to be our girls.”

Richards talked about having to go back to court with Sheen due to child support this season. It looks like all of their problems with each other aren’t totally behind them. She is also still addressing rumors about their marriage.

The episode “Read Between the Signs” showed Richards talking about how hard it has been parenting. She also addressed her marriage with Sheen. Richards claimed he was sober when they got married.

“A lot of people have an impression of me being wild and crazy,” she said in her interview. “But Charlie was sober when we got married so we were not this swinging couple like people might assume. We weren’t.”

The reality star said when she got pregnant with Lola things changed between them. “It was a very dark time,” she said. “Very toxic. And I filed for divorce when I was six months pregnant with her.”

She added, “I always did whatever I could to hide Charlie’s behavior. How do you tell kids what’s really going on? I would say, ‘Dad had to go work but he loves you so much. He wants to be here for you girls.'”

So this isn’t the first time Richards had to address open marriage rumors. She continues to claim that her marriages are monogamous.
