  • Charlie Sheen's friends are calling Denise Richards a liar: She says she's doing a reality show to make money and support her children; they say she "gets more than enough money from Charlie to never have to work, much less do a reality show that exploits the kids." Denise gets $52,000 a month tax-free in child support and previously received $60,000 a month (tax-free) for two years in alimony.

@layladylan: @tscheese: @Scoregasm: I'm going to jump in on the "pregnant women aren't allowed to do jack" conversation here. I just call such bullshit on so much of it. No coldcuts? No hot dogs? Cheese? SOFT SERVE ICE CREAM?! ARE YOU KIDDING!? My friend was 12 weeks pregnant and made our husbands pick up dining room chairs because she "couldn't lift anything."

Ugh. Be healthy, take precaution, and don't stress about everything. Lady, it sounds like you're doing a good job of that! When are you due?
