Inside Denise's ‘HELL HOUSE'
Star|October 04, 2021
DENISE RICHARDS’ DAUGHTER CLAIMS HER MOM’S HOME IS AN “ABUSIVE HELL HOUSE.” HERE’S WHAT’S REALLY HAPPENING BEHIND CLOSED DOORS.

Dressed in a black hoodie and with tears running down her face, Sami Sheen went viral with a shocking video recently posted to TikTok. The 17-year-old dead-ringer for her mom, Denise Richards, made some serious allegations about living with the former Real Housewife of Beverly Hills — announcing that she had moved in with her father, former wild man, Charlie Sheen. “1 year ago today: trapped in an abusive household, hated myself, would go days without eating or sleeping, insanely depressed, hated school, etc.,” the teen wrote alongside the teary video. Then, over a clip of her smiling, she revealed she’d “finally moved out of the hell house” and was “happy” and “full of self love.”

Teen drama? Or real terror? As shockwaves ripple through Hollywood over Sami’s allegations, sources tell Star what it’s really like inside the 50-year-old’s “chaotic” Malibu house, which she shares with husband Aaron Phypers, her other daughter with Charlie, 16-year-old Lola, her disabled adopted daughter Eloise, 10, and a menagerie of pets.

Meanwhile, a source says a “mortified” Denise is still reeling. “Denise really thought leaving Real Housewives would keep her out of the news,” the source reveals. But when Sami decided to air the family’s dirty laundry “it brought her right back into the spotlight. She’s embarrassed.”

DISORDERLY CONDUCT?

She may have good reason. While that source insists that the Wild Things actress denies the accusations made by her eldest daughter, a second insider reveals that things inside the home are hardly serene.

“Denise’s house is overrun by her dogs and she’s always rescuing and fostering more,” reveals the insider — the avowed animal lover reportedly cares for up to 20 foster dogs a year, and owns a horse, a potbellied pig and a rat, among other critters. “She’s had up to 14 pooches in the past, and they all sleep in her bed.” And they’re not always the best-behaved. “The animals are everywhere and the housekeepers have a heck of a time cleaning up after them,” says the insider, adding, “it’s impossible for that house to stay clean with that many dogs. There’s fur everywhere and there’s always accidents.”
