The Wild Things actress – who split from Two and a Half Men actor Charlie in 2005 following three years of marriage and officially divorced him in November 2006 – had her name changed from Denise Sheen to Denise Richards in Los Angeles on Friday (21.03.08).

In a further move to remove all traces of Charlie – with who she has two children, Sam, three and two-year-old Lola Rose – from her life, Denise visited a tattoo parlour over the weekend to have the ‘Charlie’ tattoo on her ankle covered up.

It is reported the 36-year-old former Bond girl chose to cover up her ex-husband’s namesake with a tattoo of a fairy.

Meanwhile, Denise – whose reality TV show is set to premiere in the US this summer – is back on the dating scene, thanks to her close friend, American Idol host Ryan Seacrest.

He told America’s People magazine: “I can tell you Denise is on a blind date tonight – I can’t tell you with who though!”
