Denise Richards on Being Honest With Her Daughters About Appearing in Playboy

Denise Richards Shares Her Biggest Parenting Regret, Reveals She Was ‘Honest’ with Her Daughters About ‘Playboy’ Cover

Denise Richards feels honesty is best when it comes to raising her daughters, even if that means diving into uncomfortable conversations that come with being a public figure. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star recently dished on all things parenting and Playboy as she sat down with Dean McDermott, Nicky Paris, and Adam Hunter for their Daddy Issues podcast

“I’m honest with them,” Richards said. “They heard that I was in Playboy. I didn’t even think that they would know what that is … now kids can go on the internet and see all kinds of things. So having to explain that kind of stuff … but they don’t google [me]. I don’t think they want to know certain things, either, so they’ve heard bits and pieces.”

Denise has lived through many dramatically public moments, including her infamous relationship with Charlie Sheen, but has managed to always keep it real with daughters Sam, Lola, and Eloise

Her one regret? Giving her girls smartphones too soon. “I think the biggest mistake I made as a parent was giving my kids a phone that was not a flip phone,” she said.

“It is so hard to control the internet on the phone. Even putting things on there to block it, it doesn’t work, they’re smarter than us. So if I could go back and do anything over, I would definitely not give them a phone where they have access to social media and the internet.”

Something tells us she is hardly the only mom with that specific regret.
