Denise Richards not coveting Charlie Sheen's maybe-money

Denise Richards doesn't seem to be in any rush to make any new bucks off Charlie Sheen.

Richards, who has two daughters with the former star of "Two and a Half Men" and in June adopted an infant daughter, Eloise, already receives $50,000 a month in child support from Sheen. Brooke Mueller, who also has two daughters with the actor, is having her similarly sized support money sent directly to her from his Warner Bros. paychecks, to guarantee its arrival each month.

However, with Sheen reportedly close to a $25-million payday from Warner Bros., TMZ managed to elicit a "Not my money" comment from Richards, who was out shopping when the camera lens was shoved in her direction.

And after Life & Style reported that Richards had almost accepted a $100,000 offer to appear as one of the exes in the Charlie Harper funeral scene on "Men," a source told E! News that she never would have taken such a gig. "Charlie would have gone ballistic," the source said. E! also confirmed that an offer had been made.

So much for the L&S "insider" who said it was a difficult "no" for Denise, as "she really wants to get back into TV." Though, actually, that person also mentioned that "Charlie would have gone crazy." Are we seeing a theme here?

About Charlie's pending Warner Bros.' bucks: The $25-million deal reported Tuesday by the Los Angeles Times would close the door on the dispute over his firing, removing the need for arbitration in his $100-million lawsuit against his former employer.
