Actress Denise Richards knows how to get publicity; drop your top on the beach. The actress appeared on her cable TV show, Denise Richards: It’s Complicated,” doing just that. Then things, well, got complicated.
Richards, 39, who is nothing if not bikini ready, went for a romp with three hot friends on a secluded beach. It wasn’t long before the tops came off and Richards flashed her breasts several times.
But then, as you would have it, a pesky photographer suddenly showed up on the deserted beach and started snapping away.
Of course, by then all four girls were prone, lying on their bare chests. So not much to see.
Was the photographer a plant to give the show a little dramatic edge? Sure seemed like it, although the photo’s face was blurred out.
Denise popped up, wrapped her bare breasts in an towel and started approaching the photographer.
Denise got in the pap’s face and bitched him out, but he just kept snapping away.
The closer Denise got, the angrier she got, until finally one of her towel-wrapped friends restrained her.
The girls returned to their blanket, but the photographer just wouldn’t go away. Needless to say, no more flashing from Denise.
Why she was so mad at the photographer is a mystery, since the camera crew was filming the entire time (Check out the NSFW video)
The incident appeared to play off a real life confrontation in 2006 when Richards spied two photographers taking her picture from a nearby balcony while she was filming at a casino in Canada.
She confronted them and threw their laptop computers off the balcony.
One laptop struck an 80-year-old woman in a wheelchair; the other hit a 91-year-old woman in the arm. Neither suffered serious injury, and no charges were pressed against Richards
Richards has kind of dropped out of the limelight since her stormy marriage to actor Charlie Sheen ended in a hail of allegations in 2006.
She became famous in the late 1990s in films where she was definitely cast as eye candy. They include “Starship Troopers,” “Wild Things” and “The World Is Not Enough.”
She appeared on “Dancing with the Stars,” Season Eight, to help jump start her career, and landed her E! reality show
Denise Richards: It’s Complicated is broadcast on the E! Network.
