Denise Richards is definitely not your average Girl Next Door!

The Wild Things star looked stunning in white skinny jeans and a sheer orange tank that showed off her tanned and toned arms, while promoting her new book, The Real Girl Next Door, at Barnes and Noble on Tuesday.

The actress (and new mama to just-adopted baby daughter Eloise) made an appearance on NBC Today yesterday morning to promote her new book, and opened up on her feelings for ex-hubby, Charlie Sheen.

Richards confessed, "The man I fell in love with is very compassionate, humble and has a wonderful hear. And the behavior that a lot of us saw in the last six months is not the person I met and fell in love with. He's also a survivor and if anyone can pull themselves together, it's Charlie."
