While appearing on the ever-so-controversial Howard Stern 101 Sirius XM Radio show, former American Idol judge Simon Cowell revealed to the host that he had aÂ ”bizarre kind of blind date” with Charlie Sheen‘s ex-wife Denise Richards a few years ago.
Cowell, 51, said he and Richards, 40, were set up by mutual friends to meet at the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills. “She’s cute,” he said.
So where’s the catch?Â ”She turned up 8 months pregnant and had a dog in her handbag.” Yikes. Richards gave birth to two daughters with Sheen: Sam, 7, and Lola, 6. She recently adopted her infant daughter Eloise Joni over the summer. Cowell admitted seeing Richards pregnant was “a real turnoff.”
“A little bit,” Cowell confessed. “But she is gorgeous. I liked her a lot, I think she’s cute, funny, a bit of a wacko…but I like that.”
The two are now just friends. Cowell is currently engaged to makeup artistÂ Mezhgan Hussainy. But hey! Thanks for fillin’ us in on a good story.
