Denise Richards wishes she hadn't had breast implants to go from flat to a D-cup as a teenager. In her latest iVillage essay, she worries that she's sending a bad message to her three daughters about beauty and confidence. "I'm in a business where looks and weight do matter," she writes. "My girls see me at work or getting ready for photo shoots and I'm sure at times it can be a confusing message to them when I'm being primped, dressed and fussed over." In the essay, Richards says having daughters has made her regretful of her breast implants. "At 19 when I first got my breasts done, I wish that I was confident enough with my body to not have had surgery," she writes. "That is something that I really want to encourage in my daughters, to embrace their healthy body and have confidence."
Oh, Denise, Denise, Denise, of all my regrets, you having a child ranks pretty highly up there...Don't get me wrong, I'm sure your kids are great, mommy's little angels, blah, blah, blah... It's just that you were it for me growing up...You know what I'm talking about.
1998, Wild Things, I'm shivering just thinking about it now...I dropped whatever I was doing countless times whenever I saw Wild Things was on one of the HBO's, just pure sex appeal, you might have single handedly been responsible for my voice changing over from awkwardly high pitched boy to teenage man-boy. I mean, screw Britney, you introduced me to the sexy school girl outfit, and you dominated that it.
So you can understand why it pains me to hear you lamenting those god given gifts of yours (so what if they're not natural, god still gave us the resources). Embrace those gifts Denise, know that you ushered an entire legion of boys into manhood when you went all scissor fest with Neve Campbell. Those things made you an absolute legend and in no way should you be lamenting them.
