Denise Richards will strip in Vegas

Denise Richards isn't letting a messy divorce stop her from doing what she does best: dancing sensually.

The actress, who is currently embroiled in bitter divorce proceedings with her husband Charlie Sheen, will join the burlesque show Pussycat Dolls onstage in Las Vegas on Friday, June 9. The show takes place at the Pussycat Dolls Lounge inside the Ceasar's Palace hotel casino.

Richards will don suspenders and lingerie as part of the one-year anniversary celebration of the Lounge. Previous celebrity guest dancers have been Desperate Housewives' Eva Longoria, Married...With Children's Christina Applegate, film star Scarlett Johansson, musician Gwen Stefani, and Stacked's Pamela Anderson.

The Pussycat Dolls are a burlseque dance troupe formed in 1995 by choreographer Robin Antin, and have been described as "like Spice Girls, but racier." In 2005 they scored a massive dance hit with their single "Don't Cha," featuring Busta Rhymes.

In other Richards news, lawyers for her and Two and a Half Men star Sheen are scheduled today to extend a restraining order that prohibited Sheen from coming near Richards. In late April, the ex-Sex, Love, and Secrets star filed the restraining order against Sheen, claiming in the order that he had threatened her life, remained addicted to drugs, frequented hookers, and trolled the Web for gay porn.

Despite the allegations, Two and a Half Men finished the 2006 TV season as the number one sitcom on TV.
