Charlie Sheen Spends 'Wonderful' Thanksgiving With Denise and Kids

EXCLUSIVE: Bad boy Charlie Sheen may be hard up for things to be thankful for after his infamous night out in October with a porn starlet in NYC, but he does have one person to be grateful for: his ex-wife Denise Richards, who invited the all-alone star over to celebrate Thanksgiving with his girls Sam and Lola.
"Charlie spent the afternoon eating turkey with Denise and their two daughters," a close friend of Sheen's reveals to me. "It was a wonderful time for them all to be together and Denise's idea that they all sit down together as one happy family as if that awful night had never happened."
Except that "awful night" did happen (on Oct. 26) and the consequences of which are still biting him. Charlie filed a lawsuit against Capri Anderson (an adult film actress whose real name is Christine Walsh) alleging that she tried to extort $1 million from him after a "consensual encounter" in a New York hotel room.
"This case involves a shakedown and extortion ... by an opportunist pornographic film star and publicity-hungry scam artist," says the lawsuit filed four days ago just hours after Capri told ABC's 'Good Morning America' that she was a victim of assaulted, battered and held against her will by Sheen.
"It's clear the night in New York is far from over," an insider tells me, "but at least for one day that topic wasn't discussed over the Thanksgiving table. All Denise wanted was for her children to spend the holidays with their father. If she has to testify about what she was doing that night, she will, but for one day they all focused on what they had to be thankful for. Each other."
Happy Thanksgiving Charlie, sounds like you should be very thankful for Denise.
