Denise Richards made one thing very clear Friday about being Charlie Sheen's ex-wife and mother of two of his kids: "It's a difficult situation. " Richards, who rarely comments specifically about Sheen's exploits, actually didn't say very much to Barbara Walters and the gang when she guest-hosted Friday on "The View" (Walters admitted being the "designated hitter" tapped to broach the subject), but she did acknowledge how awkward it is for her from a mother's perspective. "I'm learning as I go," said Richards, who explained she can easily control what's on television at home, but still has to deal with what her two girls might pick up at school.

They make it so easy, Dina and Denise. So easy to judge, so easy to feel superior. From the time Dina Lohan and Denise Richards announced they each would be starring in E! autobiographical reality series, it was pretty much like shooting fish in a barrel. Had the years they spent being trashed in the tabloids -- Dina for being Mama Rose to the talented but troubled Lindsay, Denise for her nasty, public phone-call-transcript divorce from Charlie Sheen -- taught them nothing? Were they so addicted to celebrity they would stoop to bring cameras into their homes, chronicling the daily lives of their young children?

Brooke Mueller, ex-wife of Charlie Sheen and mother to his twin boys, has been getting treatment for prescription drug abuse since Friday, according to her rep. "Brooke is currently at UCLA Medical Center where she has been since being admitted May 3," Steve Honig told the Ministry in a statement. "She will be there for several more days, and will likely transition directly into a residential treatment facility to get help for prescription drug abuse. " That's contrary to a report that Mueller had been involuntarily checked into the medical center for care on Wednesday.

The public can change the channel. Their families can't. To watch them both demonstrate their insatiable need for attention and cling to celebrity with a death grip would be somewhat humorous if there were not children involved. The only fame these two have ever accomplished has been at the expense of others.

Entertainment Television today that chronicle their personal and professional battles. Though different in scope and tone, the plea from both women is the same: "Don't believe the hype -- believe us, because we are just like you."

Charlie Sheen has a job again. And he's pals with ex-wife Denise Richards again. And he's drinking again. But the best news? He's no longer in "total denial. " There's "winning," and then there's winning. "Clearly, a guy gets fired, his relationships are in the toilet, he's off on some ... tour, there's nothing 'winning' about any of that," he tells Rolling Stone , a magazine whose cover he'd coveted since age 14. "I mean, how does a guy who's obviously quicksanded, how does he consider any of it a victory?
