The mother and daughter team seems to be getting closer after a difficult 2021.
Denise shared a post with flashback photos in April to celebrate Sami, who turns 18.
‘In the blink of an eye you are 18 years old … !!!!’ wrote an ex-girlfriend on the cover of Playboy.
‘Happy birthday my beautiful Sami. I love you very much. Privately many more words to share with you. I love you unconditionally and I am very blessed and grateful to be your mom. And Nana looks down and celebrates with you. I love you my sweet Sami. Happy 18th birthday! ‘
In February, Richards said her relationship with Sami was ‘tense’.
The actress was going through ‘tough’ moments with Sami, but she admitted she would love for the teenager to come back to her after she went to live with her dad, actor Sheen, last year.

Appearing on the Jeff Lewis Live show on SiriusXM, Denise said: ‘Honestly, I have a tense relationship with her. It is very difficult. I know we will eventually get back to where we were, but it is tense at the moment.
‘Obviously I would love for him to live with me. She has lived with me all these years. But I think it’s really hard to raise teenagers right now, especially in Los Angeles when there’s access to everything. We didn’t grow up with Postmates and Uber where you have everything you want. ‘
The Beverly Hills Real Housewife star – who also has Lola (16) with Charlie and 10-year-old adopted daughter Eloise – has insisted she’s not a ‘strict mom’ but has ‘rules and boundaries’.

She added: ‘There are certain rules and I enforce them. AND [at Sheen’s]there are different rules in that house and that’s fine. ‘
Denise confirmed that Sami is ‘not in school’ at the moment and admitted that she disagrees with certain things her daughter is doing.
She added: ‘But that’s fine. We can agree not to agree. ‘

Sami had previously claimed that the home she lived in with Denise and her husband Aaron Phypers was a ‘hell house’.
In a video shared on TikTok, she wrote with a video of herself crying: ‘Today a year ago: I was trapped in a violent household, I hated myself, I would spend days without food and sleep, madly depressed, hated school, etc .. . ‘
The video then cut to a teenager smiling with the caption: ‘Now: finally moved out of hell, had a spiritual awakening, owns 2 cats, is a happy single man, loving himself and left high school :).’
