SURVIVORS Sambora, Richards
How much self-pity can someone who is beautiful, rich, and dating a rock star muster? Read Denise Richards's account of her two years in tabloid hell to find out.
The Starship Troopers vixen spilled her guts (exclusively!) to Glamour about her breakup with Charlie Sheen and subsequent romance with Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora, a period chronicled extensively in Us Weekly, Star, and In Touch.
Of Sambora's ex, Heather Locklear, Richards says, "I don't want to go into the details of what caused our rift—Heather and Richie have a nine-year-old daughter, and I don't want her to read these personal things in the press. I will say this: I did not have an affair with Richie during his marriage."
"I would never want to relive the past two years of my life, but I learned a really important lesson from all this: I had no idea how strong I was," she concludes. "I feel like if I can survive this, I can survive anything." No doubt—because what could be more harrowing than having your name sullied among the supermarket checkout line set?
