Denise Richards' Big, Bad Billboard Bouffant

12/05/2006 at 01:00 PM ET

What was she thinking? At last night’s Billboard Awards in Las Vegas, Denise Richards stepped on stage to introduce Gwen Stefani’s performance, but who could focus on what she was saying — all we could do was stare at that massive, teased bouffant on top of her head! It almost looked like she bought Beyonce’s B-Day album, saw her hairstyle on the cover and said to her stylist, “I want my hair to look something like that.” And while it might work in still photography, Denise ended up looking more like a chorus member from Hairspray than a dynamic diva. Tell us: What do you think of Denise’s hair-raising look? Was it all in good fun or no fun at all?

I personally cannot stand Denise Richards but from what I’ve seen, her hair isn’t that bad compared to Gwen Stefani’s swirly-Q do. Now THAT’S a laughable hair disaster.

It looks hideious Denise. But so does your life….

What the hell is up with the Arkansas remark? There are a lot of very beautiful and intelligent people in Arkansas. I’ve been to a lot of other States and I wouldn’t live anywhere else. Don’t knock it if you’ve never been here. Maybe some day Denise and Richie will visit Arkansas and she can wear her hair any damn way she pleases.

Heather was probably home on her couch sipping champagne and so riddled with laughter at such a spectacle that her drink may have escaped through her nose….and that’s with the mute button on…..if she HEARD her little speech/introduction…..then Heather may have had to call 911 due to hyperventilation and heart palpitations!!!!

Denise looked horrible.

Listerino on

She looks terrible and you can even see by the fake smile planted on her face that she KNOWS it looks terrible. But you can’t blame her – it was probably her stylist that did it.

MAJOR ’90’s going on…NOT flattering at all, it simply doesn’t look good.
