Denise Richards Rejects Cameo In 'Two And A Half Men': REPORT

Charlie Sheen may be facing a pretty payday, with a rumored $125 million settlement with Warner Bros in the works, but Denise Richards wants nothing to do with her ex-husband's alma mater. In an act of fiction-meets-real-life, Life & Style magazine reports this week that the actress turned down $100,000 to appear as an ex-girlfriend-in-mourning during Charlie's funeral on the show. "They wanted to bring back a real ex," a source told the publication.

Though Richards recently published the book, "The Real Girl Next Door," in which she recounts falling in love with the troubled actor and their eventual fall-out, she's remaining mum about Charlie's current financial situation. When asked recently by TMZ about how she felt about Charlie's current lawsuit, Richards snapped "It's Charlie's money, not mine."

Wellllll not exactly, Denise: Charlie reportedly doles out $50,000 per month to his ex-wife, with whom he has two daughters, in child support. As the source, speaking of the potential cameo role, told Life & Style, "Charlie would've gone crazy, and Denise knows where her bread is buttered." WATCH:
