Ryan Seacrest producing Denise Richards’ reality show

Ryan Seacrest is producing a reality series about Denise Richards’ life, a show that’s been the focus of a court battle this week with her ex-husband Charlie Sheen.

Seacrest told OK! Magazine, “We’ve been in talks about doing a series with her. I don’t know if the kids would necessarily be involved. It would be about her, if we do this, and her life. And what she wants to do with it, with her career.”

In court this week, “despite Sheen’s objections, a court commissioner greenlighted Richards’ plans for a reality show featuring her and Sheen’s two daughters, 3-year-old Sam and 2-year-old Lola,” according to E! Online. “There are unspecified ground rules, a source said, but otherwise Richards was ‘very happy.’ Richards was said to have needed Sheen’s permission to make the project work, but the Two and a Half Men star had shown no sign of being okay with the girls appearing on camera.”

While no network has been named, and Seacrest indicates that the show is not definite yet, it would likely be for E!, as part of his $21 million deal.
