Even just getting out of a parking lot can sometimes be complicated.

Denise Richards found herself doing a little cha-cha of sorts with the shutterbugs outside the 3rd Street Dance studio in West Hollywood on Thursday after practicing with her Dancing With the Stars partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

But the It's Complicated star seemed to take it all in stride and—despite being asked such inane questions as "How's Charlie doing?"—managed to offer up a couple of waves.

Now let's hope the photogs at least return the favor by throwing a few votes Denise's way come March 9, when the new season of DWTS premieres on ABC.
