The TV personality, 51, and her daughter opted for comfort to grab a quick bite to eat as they spent some quality time together to kick off the weekend.
The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills actress shares Sami, 18, and another daughter, Lola, 17, with ex-husband and actor Charlie Sheen. The star also has an 11-year-old adopted daughter, Eloise.

The Wild Things actress kept her look simplistic in the afternoon heat and donned classic blue jeans.
She paired the pants with a plain black tank top to stay cool in the California sun.
Denise had a black sweater tied around her waist in case she got a little chilly. To complete her outfit for the day, the beauty slipped into a pair of orange and white sneakers.
The mother-daughter duo appeared to be in high spirits as they spent time together after having a rocky relationship earlier this year.

Denise was pictured with a Gucci tote bag slung over her right shoulder, which costs around $1,890, according to the luxury brand’s website.
Her blonde hair fell straight to her shoulders and was covered in a camouflage print cap.
Sami also opted to keep her look simple and casual for the outing, and donned a pair of black sweatpants with a printed black sweatshirt. The hoodie attached to the sweater was pulled up to cover her hair.
Along with sporting a pair of simple black and white sneakers, the star had a glittering Prada handbag slung over her shoulder that can be had for $2,500.
To accessorize her look, Sami donned a pair of sunglasses and carried a water bottle in her hand to stay hydrated.

In 2020, problems reportedly started to arise between Denise and Sami. A year later, in September 2021, her daughter revealed in a since-deleted TikTok video that she had officially moved out of her mother’s “hell house” and into her father, Charlie Sheen’s house in Malibu.
At the time, a source close to the reality star told Us Weekly that Denise was beyond “saddened” by Sami’s decision.
“Charlie did not support Denise’s implementation of the rules. He has a different way of parenting and Sami has decided to live with his dad,’ the insider said.
“Denise is like any other divorced parent dealing with a rebellious teenager. It’s better for Sami if Denise and Charlie co-parent during this time. They are not.’

Earlier this year in February, Denise opened up about her “strained” relationship with Sami on the Jeff Lewis Has Issues podcast.
“Obviously I would like her to live with me. She’s lived with me all these years. But I think it’s very difficult raising teenagers now and especially in LA. When you have access to everything” , she explained during the interview.
“Honestly, I have a strained relationship with her. And it’s very difficult. I know we’ll get back to where we left off, but right now it’s strained,” the Starship Troopers added.
“There are certain rules and I apply them. There are different rules in this house and that’s fine,’ Denise said, referring to her ex Charlie’s house.
However, since February this year, it seems that their mother-daughter relationship has improved.
Decisions: When Sami revealed that she had joined Only Fans, Denise expressed her support for her daughter
Support: Earlier in June, Denise hopped on her own Instagram page to express her support for her daughter’s decision to create an Only Fans account following a backlash.
In May, Sami shared a heartfelt tribute to Denise on Mother’s Day. A month later, in June, the TV personality and actress sided with her daughter in support of her decision to have an Only Fans account.
She wrote on Instagram: “I have to say I wish I had the confidence that my 18 year old daughter has.” And I can’t pass judgment on his choices either.
Denise explained that she had also posed for publications such as Playboy when she was younger, and concluded her statement by typing, ‘those of you who are judging… looks like you may already be subscribed to an @onlyfans account. Have a good week-end.’
Charlie had made a statement and initially told Us Weekly that Sami was living with Denise again and “that didn’t happen under my roof.”
The former model continued to defend her daughter and also told the publication, “Sami is 18, and this decision was not based on the house she lives in. All I can do as a parent , it’s guiding her and trusting her judgement, but she makes her own choices.
Denise has had primary physical custody of Sami and her daughter, Lola, since 2010. In 2018, the star married Aaron Phypers, who legally adopted her daughter, Eloise.
Reconciled: During this year, it seems that Denise and Sami have grown closer and have a better relationship
