Brooke Mueller Heads Off To Rehab, Denise Richards Takes Twins

December 12, 2012 09:00 AM by Donna W. Martin

Denise Richards, star of Denise Richards: It’s Complicated is stepping in to care for Brooke Mueller’s twin boys, Max and Bob while she’s away at rehab getting treatment for Adderall addiction. And get this… its Mueller’s 19th stint in rehab.

According to MSN’s Wonderwall, Mueller went to Richards and asked her to care for her twin boys so she could go to rehab for some much-needed help. Richards agreed and Mueller checked herself into a treatment facility on Monday.

Mueller asked Richards to care for the boys in her absence because their father, Charlie Sheen was unable to do so due to his work schedule on TV sitcom, “Anger Management.” According to TMZ, Richards has agreed to care for Max and Bob for “an indefinite period of time.”

Why would Richards take on the responsibility of caring for Mueller’s sons? Richards also has two children with Charlie Sheen, daughters, Lola and Sam and according to Daily Mail, she’s happy Mueller’s sons will get to spend more time with their sisters.

But this isn’t the first time Richards has stepped in to care for Max and Bob while Mueller sought help. She has supported “Mueller through her drug battle and multiple rehab stints in recent years, and previously took care of the boys while Mueller stayed at a wellness center to aid her recovery earlier this year.”

While the circumstances are not the best in the world, the main thing is that the boys are in a safe environment and that they’re cared for, right?

Mueller has had a lifelong battle with drug addiction and decided it was time to go back to rehab after she was found unconscious by her assistant last week.

What do you think of Richards stepping up to care for Mueller’s sons? Do you think this trip to rehab will help Mueller kick the habit and stay clean for her children? Or do you think she will relapse and later end up back in rehab for the 20th time? Post a comment below and tell us what you think.

    Good idea- Denise is a great mom. Brooke is lucky to have such a caring person looking after her twins.

    I am hoping Brooke can stay sober. Brooke- People, Places and Things! Go to meetings! Find some new sober buddies- lots of very cool people are sober.

    Ms. Richards,

    “Normal folk” would have lost their kids long before the 19th stint in rehab.

    I think what Denise is doing is great. It’s whats best for the children. What a kind and caring person Denise is. If it was anyone else going to rehab for the 19th time, they would have lost their children after the 3r attempt. Money does talk.

    Sounds like she might have an addiction to rehab. No joke.

    Kudos to Denise for taking on her ex’s kids and her daughters half brothers. Maybe the boys will have a shot at “normal” if Denise continues to “help” and Charlie helps out financially. Real moms aren’t just the people who give birth, they are the one in the trenches and it sounds like Denise has stepped into this role before and will continue to do so. Fingers crossed for the boys sake.
