(Srsly, what was with that sniffling??)
How very mature of these two.
The two even planned on having a play date with their kids last week, just before Brooke relapsed and checked back into rehab.
An insider says that the two are becoming close friends, adding:
"Brooke and Denise talk quite frequently. It was Denise's idea to get together for dinner with Brooke with their children. Denise's children with Charlie, Sam and Lola, have spent time in the past with their half-siblings, Bob and Max. Denise wants all the children to hang out together.
Denise has reached out to Brooke since her relapse to offer her support. Denise wants to have the girls spend time with their brothers, when she is assured that Brooke is sober, and wants it be a fun outing for everyone, with no drama. It's about the kids forming a bond, and nothing else."
Denise insists that all of Charlie's kids become close and knows that he's not capable of having custody of his children. The source continues:
"Denise is fiercely protective of the girls and will not permit them to be in any environment that has the possibility of causing any emotional harm to them.
Denise makes a mama bear that is protective of her cubs look like a wimp. Let’s face it, Denise has very good reasons to feel the way she does. Denise went through hell with Charlie and she won't let that happen to her girls, period."
We admire her tenacity to keep all the children together. If anything, Brooke and Charlie's sons Bob and Max need stability more than ever. With a father on a tourpedo of anger and a mother in sober living, we're glad that Denise is willing to step in and be a mature adult by bonding with Brooke and her sons.
