This was a challenge later in life when she became pregnant with her daughters and when she had to be exposed to sick children. Her late mother explained how she had reached the point where she was becoming anxious about vomiting.

“I was in my early twenties before my mother explained, as a little girl, I followed my father into the bathroom while he was sick and saw him puke,” Richards wrote. “I thought he was dying, she said, and it affected the rest of my life. It bothers me that something I don’t even remember has had such an impact on me, but it has, and my phobia, formally known as emetophobia, has been a particular challenge in my first trimester. . ”

Denise Richards had to leave the finals of the ‘American Idol’

Richards says she was going through a difficult time in her life, so her friends thought she needed attention. They suggested attending the event American Idol finale. Richards’ mother was dying of cancer and was going through a difficult divorce from Charlie Sheen, so she agreed to spend time with them.

They wanted the American Idol finale if that’s possible, so I named Ryan Seacrest, who arranged some amazing seats for us at the Kodak Theater. On the way to the theater, however, I was struck by a wave of nausea.

As I went through security at the theater, the fear of throwing up became a shame. My hand went over my mouth and I turned bug-eyed. A guard asked if I was OK. I shook my head or, ran past it, and found trash in the corner of the lobby and threw up!

Richards says she was ashamed. A nurse in the set helped her, and she says she put it out again. She tried to sit through American Idol finale, but before the show started, she decided to go home.

I said hello to the Idol judges, Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson. I mentioned Ryan too. However, shortly after the show started, I started to feel anxious again. The queasiness returned to my stomach. Then I panicked.

What if I threw up on live TV? Because they often spoke to celebrities in the audience, I knew that there was an opportunity, no matter how remote, for something awful to be seen by thirty million people, and that narrow capacity to enough for me to send a quick goodbye to my friends and go. home.

“I couldn’t figure out why I was sick,” Richards wrote. “I didn’t feel like I had the flu or even food poisoning. My friends insisted it was stressful. ‘I never threw off pressure,’ I said. My friend said, ‘You never had to deal with your mother dying of cancer. ‘She was right. After holding everything from Charlie to Richie to my catch-up fight and my mother’s cancer locked in them, I reached my limit. It blew me out. ”
