Denise Richards Sad About Heather Locklear

Denise Richards is saddened her relationship with former pal Heather Locklear‘s estranged husband, Richie Sambora, has ended their friendship, but insists “you can’t help who you fall for.”

Richards and estranged husband Charlie Sheen regularly socialized with Locklear and the Bon Jovi guitarist until the respective couples split earlier this year.

The Wild Things actress started dating Sambora in April–three months after filing for divorce from Sheen and her friendship with Locklear has now floundered.

Speaking to TV show Entertainment Tonight, Richards says, “You know, the four of us were friends, so it’s not just odd for her. I mean, Charlie knew Richie, but it’s always the women who get the brunt of it all!

“You can’t help who you fall for.

“And that friendship (with Locklear), unfortunately, was done and wasn’t salvageable and that’s the thing. People have gone on, ‘Oh, would you date your best friend’s ex?’ You know, she wasn’t my best friend. She was a close friend in the last couple of years. I hadn’t known her my whole life.

“We did not get together during a marriage… (but people) have been hurt in this situation. It’s not good, but it is what it is.”

Richards Delighted for Jolie and Pitt

Actress Denise Richards is delighted Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have welcomed their new daughter, Shiloh Nouvel–because it’s taken the media’s attention away from her messy divorce from Charlie Sheen.

The former Bond girl filed for divorce from Sheen in January and is seeking custody of their two daughters, Lola and Sam. In divorce papers, Richards alleges the Spin City star pushed, shoved and threatened to kill her.

In recent months, Richards has embarked on a new relationship with her former pal Heather Locklear‘s estranged husband, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora.

On tonight’s episode of Entertainment Tonight, Richards enthuses, “I was so thankful that Angelina had that baby. And how gorgeous is she?

“I’m like, please have that baby so it takes it away from us!”
