Denise Richards: Singing 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game' Was 'Horrifying'

Denise Richards admits her rendition of 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game' at Wrigley Field was far from a home run.

"It was horrifying," says Denise. "I'm not a singer and then to be in front of all those people was a little terrifying."

It all started when she was planning a trip to Chicago for a fundraiser for the Kidney Cancer Association (her mom died of the disease), and asked the Cubs to set up an informational booth at Wrigley Field for the game.

"In return, they said, 'Will you sing?'" Richards explains to 'E!'. "So I said yes, because it's for a good cause and we want to raise awareness about kidney cancer."

"It took everything in me to get up there and do that. My dad and my sister kept saying, 'Just remember you're doing this for Mom,' so that's how I got through it. It's just unfortunate that doing something good was turned into such a negative."

"I'm clearly not a singer and I wasn't doing it to show off my pipes. Thank God I wasn't singing the national anthem. But I thought it would be fun. I had no idea the backlash I would get."

Although she did enjoy her visit to Wrigley: "You feel like it's old-school baseball. I love how the scoreboard isn't all digital. It's very authentic and traditional. I got into baseball with Charlie Sheen because he's such a fan. When I was a kid, I was such a tomboy and as I got a little older, that changed."
