After two weeks of hitting the pavement hard in search of a new home, it seems Hollywood homewrecker Denise Richards has finally found the perfect little dungeon of sin in the Pacific Palisades neighbourhood of Los Angeles.The nearby schools and ultra private backyard make this modest little $2.2 million abode just perfect for Denise, her two daughters and her no good cheatin' man, Richie Sambora.
