Denise Richards' Life with 17 Pets Is So Complicated!

Denise Richards' Life with 17 Pets Is So Complicated!

It seems like having tons of animals is nearly a prerequisite for getting a reality show on E! – from Snoop Dogg's Fatherhood to Girls Next Door, multiple pets seem to be this station's norm. I admit I missed new show Denise Richards: It's Complicated when it first aired on Sunday, but caught wind that she had an unbelievable number of pets that were prominently featured in the first episode.

Umm, and boy is that the truth as her family includes 17 pets! Find out just what types share her property outside of LA when you


In addition to her dad and two daughters living there, Denise Richards' menagerie appears to have plenty of room to roam on what appears to be a farm/ranch-style property! First off, she has three cats (Max, Billy, and Stan) who appeared to be rather camera-shy thus far. Next she has 11 doggies. I tried my best to notice and write down the various breeds I saw (I definitely spotted a Boston, Frenchie, Chihuahua, Pug, Lab, and two Cavs) but was unable to put a lil face to each name: that's Tina, Hank, Wally, Luke, Scarlet, Lily, Emma, Olivia, Sugar, George, and Lucy. Phew. Lastly, she had two oinkers, Charlotte and Bert, and added a new lil one this episode – I think she's hoping for some piggy babies!

The animals seem to be getting along well now, but that wasn't always the case – check out this old video of her working with the Dog Whisperer and tell me what you think about her zoo! I know I'm tuning in to see what happens with the pack next week.

I think it is funny how most of you think it is okay judge the way she lives. It is not up to any of us to judge. This is a prime example as to what is wrong with our societly. Everyone is so damn negative.

Oh, and I don't think its a bad thing to have a lot of pets...I've always grown up with lots of animals (right now we have 4 cats, 1 dog and 2 fish) long as you're able to provide each one with the love and attention they need. I just don't see Denise doing that. It seems she treats them as objects, posessions. Much like Paris Hilton.

We have 8 (older) dogs, and our house stays very calm and clean. People always seem shocked at first when I tell them, but once they come over, they get it.

Did Paris Hilton get in trouble for having more than four dogs just a few months ago?

Some places call that hoarding...others call that rich people who "love" animals... my mind I find it hard to believe all of those animals are given all the love and attention they deserve.

Honestly, that seems like too many pets unless you have special "pet helpers."

Wow I might watch the show if it shows all these animals. I would love to have a huge ass house and 11 little dogs! She doesnt have 17 dogs tho people, she has 17 animals total, 11 of them being dogs. Probably still too many for most people/houses ;)

I thought my 4 cats & 2 dogs were bad. Apparently, that's nothing! Good for her. If she loves and enjoys them, she certainly has the money to take care of them. Lucky animals!

I'm not sure what city she lives in, but in mine you're only allowed two cats and two dogs, and NO livestock.

she annoys me. But I think 17 dogs is too many! Doesn't she live in town, isn't that illegal usually?

I love animals as much as the next person, but I could never handle that many pets.

It's great that she has all those pets, but I watched the first episode of her show, and I do not need to see her pigs getting ready to have sex, I thought that was kind of unnecessary footage!
