Denise Richards says group dinner with Simon Cowell wasn't 'a date'

cowell-richards-getty.jpgTiming is everything when it comes to relationships. The newest example of this is former "American Idol" judge Simon Cowell and Charlie Sheen's ex Denise Richards.

During a Sept. 7 interview on the "Howard Stern Show," Cowell told the radio host he went on a "bizarre kind of blind date" with Richards a short period after her split with Sheen.

Cowell said of Richards, "She's cute ... She turned up eight months pregnant and had a dog in her handbag ... She's funny, a bit of a wacko ... but I like that."

Upon hearing this news, Richards seemed confused and disappointed. And like all celebs these days, she posted her thoughts on her Twitter page.

"I was at a group dinner 8mo pregnant ... not sure how that's considered a date ... news to me! if I was being set up I didn't know it!" she writes.

Richards added that maybe love could bloom between her and the judge of the upcoming series "The X Factor."

"I wish I knew that it was a date!!! He's a hot piece of a**!" she writes.

Sounds like true celebrity love.
