Incredibly, Denise Richards was granted permission yesterday by a judge to go ahead with a reality show featuring her children – over Charlie Sheen’s protests. With recommended restrictions.

Which means she can exploit her kids in exchange for a career.

That judge must have been one of her old Heidi Fleiss clients.

Seriously, given what we’ve seen over the last few years – child stars gone awry, child stars f*cked up by fame – why would any parents want to put their kids through the unnecessary exposure?

It’s unconscionable. And it’s also Denise Richards.
