Denise Richards Credits Upbringing, Girl Scouting With Keeping Her Grounded

In Illinois, The Daily Herald reports that actress Denise Richards credits the core Midwestern values that she was raised with for keeping her grounded and focused on what matters most to her: her family.

Denise was in Girl Scouts, took family camping trips, regularly hung out at the Downers Grove library and spent summer nights riding her bike with friends and catching lightning bugs.

“When I first had my daughters, my mom would tell me, ‘Your life is very different, but you can make it what you want it.' Once she put it in that perspective, it was easier for me,” Richards said.

Richards has a new book titled “The Real Girl Next Door”.
