Denise Richards has poked a hole in Simon Cowell's claim to Howard Stern that "The X Factor" boss was once set up on a blind date with the actress.
"I was at a group dinner 8mo pregnant not sure how thats considered a date," she Tweeted on Wednesday. "news to me! if I was being set up I didn't know it!"
Earlier in the day, Simon, while speaking with Howard for his "Howard 101" Sirius XM Radio show, claimed to the radio host that he was set up with Denise a number of years ago.
"We had a bizarre kind of blind date several years ago," Simon told Howard, per the Winnipeg Free Press. "She's cute. She turned up eight months pregnant and had a dog in her handbag."
Simon added that Denise's pregnancy didn't get his fires burning, but he still liked the actress.
"She is gorgeous," he said. "I liked her a lot. I think she's cute, funny, a bit of a wacko, but I like that."
"We met up afterwards," he reportedly added.
