Denise does her best to keep the tabloids from harming her children. Lola and Sam are the daughters of Denise and her ex-husband Charlie Sheen, so there is always media to protect the children from. Making the occasional guest appearance on television shows, making movies, and being a mother for two little girls keeps Denise busy. With an ex like Sheen, whose antics are becoming more flamboyant, it is easy to see why she is one of the best celebrity single moms.
