Denise Richards Turns Down “Two And A Half Men” Cameo

Most women would leap at the chance to piss off the ex…Denise Richards, has turned down an offer to appear on the first new episode of Two and a Half Men, the CBS sitcom from which her ex-husband Charlie Sheen was fired in March.

Sheen was replaced by former That ’70s Show star Ashton Kutcher following a bitter war of words with Men producer Chuck Lorre. Production insiders say producers offered Richards a guest role on next month’s season opener — which opens with a funeral for Sheen’s character, Charlie Harper, killed in a gruesome Paris subway accident — think of it as a final “Up Yours” to Carlos. Denise declined the role, however, telling friends that “she would never hear the end of it from Charlie” if she guest-starred on his old show.

Richards married Sheen in 2002; the couple had two daughters together before calling it quits with a nasty divorce in 2006. Denise released audiotape of Charlie hurling racial slurs at her and poking fun at her cancer-stricken mother. The actress also accused her ex of assaulting her and threatening her life during an altercation at the Los Angeles home in Dec. 2005.
