Denise Richards is the newest cast member to join 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' and she has fast become a fan favorite, but she recently revealed that she consulted with her famous ex Charlie Sheen before signing up.

"I did talk to him about it because as an actor in this business, I respect his opinion too," Denise told Bruce Bozzi on SiriusXM's 'Radio Andy'.

 "So I said, 'What do you think?' and he said, 'I think it could be really cool.'"

She also stated that she was determined to do the show with or without his blessing:

"Even if he said this is the dumbest thing you ever did, I still would have done the show. But it was interesting to get his side of it because I have a lot of respect for him as the father and being in this business for as many years as he has."
