Full of regret!
Denise Richards wishes she could go back in time and NOT post that maskless plane selfie on her Instagram Stories.
The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star now realizes posting the controversial picture, which showed her “hiding” under her coast without a face mask on, was stupid.
“Denise realized it wasn’t the right thing to do to post the picture,” a source told PEOPLE.
“In reality, she wore her mask the entire time except when she was taking sips of water,” the source added. “She believes in masks, and she really does follow the rules.”
A second insider told PEOPLE that Denise is “not one of those people who is anti-masks.”
“The way she handled it was strange, posting the photo. She’s ready to admit she was an idiot to post the photo!” the second insider continued.
“She was just flying home, sitting in her seat, and she put a coat over her head… you’re allowed to take a sip of water and pull your mask down,” another source told PEOPLE. “So when she took her mask down, took it off for a second to relax and drink water, she posted this thing ‘I hope nobody’s upset’ and she thought it was tongue-in-cheek. But people did not think it was funny.”
Over the weekend, Denise posted a selfie of herself on a plane without a mask. She shared that she was hiding under her “huge winter coat” because it is more protective than any mask.
“On a jet plane,” Denise wrote. “Anyone that is upset that I [am] not wearing a mask I’m hiding under a hoody [and] a huge winter coat.”
“Please. Thicker than any mask!!!!!!” she added.
