Denise Richards Opens Up about Botched Plastic Surgery
Continuing onward with book promotional duties, Denise Richards has been keeping herself occupied in New York City as of late.
The curly haired mother of three most recently stepped out on Wednesday (July 27) as she took to the streets of midtown in a flowing pink frock - making time to smile for the shutterbugs as she hurried between stops at ABC studios and "The Howard Stern Show."
During the course of her press duties, the 40-year-old actress revealed the truth behind a slew of botched boob jobs, telling Us magazine, "When I was 19, a doctor put in bigger implants than what I asked for. I was in such a hurry to get them that I didn't research my doctor. I just thought because they're a plastic surgeon, they must be good. You have to be your advocate for your own body and ask 100 questions."
Looking to undo the previous mess-up, the "Real Girl Next Door" author found another doctor, but they, too decided to disregard her wishes - and gave her even bigger augmentation, "I felt very vulnerable. was getting ready to film [1998's] Wild Things, and I didn't want to get into a lawsuit with some plastic surgeon. It wasn't right what the doctor did, but it is what it is."
Despite the unease she felt with her ample attributes, Denise decided to take it all off for a 2004 Playboy shoot, "I wanted to encourage women that it's OK to embrace your sexuality even though you're a mom. At the same time, I was having some problems in my marriage [to Charlie Sheen] and I didn't feel sexy and felt I had to prove something," she said.
After a long line of bad bosom procedures, Richards says she's finally where she wants to be physically. "This is the size I wanted them to look at 19! There's a long investment with breast implants. They're not going to last a lifetime and things can go wrong. I'm happy with them now, but in a year that could change."
Her new book "The Real Girl Next Door" is getting a ton of buzz, and yesterday (July 27) Denise Richards was spotted on her way to a media appearance in New York City.
The beautiful actress/mommy-of-three was smiling for the paparazzi as she headed into FOX studios for an interview on "FOX and Friends."
Denise explained the process by which she decided to adopt her newborn daughter Eloise - "I had to make that decision- do I wait for the right partner or keep moving forward with my life? I've always wanted more children so I decided to do it on my own."
As for her book, "This isn't about me trying to tell my side of the story or change perception- it's hopefully to give someone hope who is going through something similar."
