"Wild Things" star Denise Richards will reportedly take hosting job at 2008 World Music Awards, replacing Lindsay Lohan. No specific reason has been made concerning the reason of choosing Richards over Lohan.
Previously, Lohan was reportedly axed as the event's host after she got furious when the event's organizers asked "Desperate Housewives" hunk Jesse Metcalfe to appear as a co-host with her. "Lindsay was furious that she wasn't the star," a source told The Daily Mirror.
"The organizers had gone through a list of who was hot at the moment and returned to Lindsay again. But the feedback they got was really negative. They got worried and decided to change it," the source explained further. "In the end it was decided by both parties it was better if she pulled out."
The ceremony of the annual awards itself will be held in Monaco on November 9. The show will honor the most popular artists with the longest track record of success in the music industry.
