But they whiffed on the hail mary badly, and the child dependency judge gave Brooke's lawyers the big N-O.
Brooke must be thinking that this is all Denise Richards' fault.
If Denise wasn't such a terrific and sensible mommy then none of this would be happening!!!
Here's what one source said about Brooke's confidential court hearing:
“Brooke again failed to provide any concrete evidence as to why the judge should strip Denise of temporary guardianship of the boys. The twins are thriving in Denise’s care. Brooke’s brother, Scott, lives in Orange County — and any move in the children’s living situation would cause significant upheaval. They’d have to be uprooted from their preschool and their sisters.”
Personally, we think Brooke should just focus on her rehab, and just be happy that her sons are being taken care of by someone who obviously cares about them — a la Denise Richards.
One source said this about Brooke:
“Brooke just doesn’t seem to grasp the seriousness of the situation involving custody of the boys. She is used to just snapping her fingers and having her lawyers work their magic, in an attempt to make the problem go away.”
But in this case, Brooke shouldn't want the problem to go away - because the problem seems to be her!
And at least one source believes Brooke may have ulterior motives in her desperate attempts to "win" back her children.
That source said:
“Brooke is only concerned with making sure that Charlie continues to pay her child support of $55,000 each month."
We certainly hope that's not true!
