The actors have two daughters together and were married from 2002 to 2006. At the time, the divorce got really messy. Now they seem to be on much better terms and are co-parenting. Since their kids are still younger, they keep in touch. That might affect whether or not RHOBH fans will see him on the show.

Sheen probably won’t be on the Bravo show although Richards decided to do it. He also revealed that he doesn’t know much about it.

You’re gonna see the girls… I don’t appear on shows I don’t watch,” he told Extra. He doesn’t seem like the type to completely block an appearance. When asked if he’ll be on the show he told TMZ “It’s not been confirmed” then “If they’re rolling and I pull up to drop off one of the girls, then I’ll be on it.”

There was already one opportunity for him to show up. The show filmed Richards’ wedding to Aaron Phypers. She talked about why she decided to invite Sheen to the affair.

Even if he did bring a prostitute as his date, I wouldn’t care. It’s just, it is what it is,” she said on the show. “No matter what’s gone down with Charlie and I, I invite Charlie to anything having to do with the kids and I.”

Richards said she talked to Sheen before making her decision because he’s an actor

Reality TV is becoming a little more accepted by actors now but it could still be risky for someone’s career. Richards revealed that she did talk to her ex-husband about the opportunity to get his perspective.

I did talk to him about it, because as an actor in this business I respect his opinion,” she said on the radio show, Lunch with Bruce, according to People. “I said, ‘What do you think?’ and he was like, ‘I think it could be really cool.’”

However, it wasn’t like she was getting his approval on the matter. “Even if he said, ‘I think this is the dumbest thing you ever did,’ I still would have done the show, but it was interesting to get his side of it,” Richards said. “I have a lot of respect for him as the father [of my kids] and also being in this business for as many years as he has.”

The two have a good relationship after their divorce. “No matter what happens, Charlie can call me at any point,” the actress said. “I don’t see our relationship as a failure. It’s a journey. It went a different way than we anticipated, but that’s okay. And I will always be a good friend to him.”

It sounds like the exes respect one another today. Richards even gets his perspective on big career moves.
