  • Simon Cowell's 'bizarre' date with Denise Richards

    It seems like Simon Cowell has a thing for wacky women. First there is his love for Paula Abdul, and now it turns out the X-Factor judge had a “complicated” date with Denise Richards a few years back.

    “She turned up eight months pregnant and had a dog in her handbag,” Cowell told an astonished Howard Stern on his Howard 101 Sirius XM Radio show on Wednesday, adding that it was a “bizarre kind of blind date.”

    HOT SHOTS: Denise Richards.

    The unlikely pair were set up by mutual friends to meet at the swank Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

    Stern asked Cowell if it was “a real turnoff” to go on a date with a woman mere weeks away from giving birth. “A little bit,” replied Cowell. “But she is gorgeous. I liked her a lot, I think she’s cute, funny, a bit of a wacko…but I like that.”

    Always a gentleman, Cowell did not reveal what happened after the Polo Lounge, only saying, “We met up afterwards.”

    MORE PICS: Denise Richards.

    Unfortunately, Cupid missed with this one. Cowell became engaged to makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy in February 2010, while Richards, who divorced Charlie Sheen in 2006, went on to date rockers Richie Sambora and Nikki Sixx.

    The mother of three is currently single. Maybe they should try again?
