Ryan Seacrest knows a lot about Denise Richards‘s daily activities these days – including her romantic life.

The Idol host, whose company is producing Richards’s upcoming reality show, recently revealed that the former Mrs. Sheen was out with a new man.

“I can tell you she is on a blind date tonight,” Seacrest, 33, told PEOPLE during a Details magazine party to mark its 3rd annual “Mavericks” issue, with Seacrest on the cover.

The idol host was mum about the lucky guy’s name. But there is one thing Richards is certainly making a point to do: Erase her ex-husband, Charlie Sheen, from her life.

On Friday, Richards, 37, formally requested a family court to legally restore her maiden name from “Denise Sheen.” Over the weekend, she also visited a tattoo parlor where she had her “Charlie” tattoo changed into a fairy – in front of cameras for her show, her rep confirms.

The actress and single mom is set to star in an untitled E! series that will follow her as she “navigates Hollywood, romance and motherhood,” according to the network. The show, to be produced by Seacrest’s company, will debut this summer.

Dealing with Objections

Even before the cameras started rolling, the series had made news over the objections raised by Sheen, who was unhappy with plans to feature their two daughters, Sam, 3, and Lola, 2. (In January, a court commissioner granted Richards permission to include the children on the air.)

Regarding how the kids will factor into the series, Seacrest said, “How we deal with it really is up to her and Charlie. If she wants them to be a part of it, and if its okay, then great. If not, that’s her call. It really is up to her.

“This series is about her life and what she is doing with it. It’s her call. She’s an executive producer on the show, so I’ll leave it to her.”
