Sambora / Richards...Locklear? 22

Snoop in the Dogghouse after scuffle at Heathrow

UH, OH ... THE PLOT'S THICKENING: So if you've been reading about Denise Richards cuddling and canoodling up a steamy storm with rocker Richie Sambora and thinking to yourself, "It's so nice she's found a handsome guy to help get over Charlie Sheen," well HOLD IT RIGHT THERE!!!! Their story might be a tad more complicated.

According to MSNBC and InStyle magazine, there are some out there who suspect that the smooching and the cooing and the hand-holding, etc., might have started before Richards split with Sheen. And one of those who suspects this is Sambora's own estranged wife, Heather Locklear, who used to be bestest buds with Richards, and whom, we suspect, is not one to be trifled with.

"(Richards) was the one who told Heather to file for divorce," an insider told the mag. "Now it looks like she had an ulterior motive. Heather thinks Denise is the worst kind of woman -- a backstabber. She wants nothing to do with her ever again."

MEANWHILE, IN ANOTHER DARK CORNER OF CHARLIE SHEEN'S WORLD ... E! Online reports Sheen's being sued by a woman who claims she's a former flame of the actor's and that he stole her life story to create the stalking female neighbor (played by Melanie Lynskey) on his CBS sitcom, "Two and a Half Men."
The lawsuit by Ursula Auburn was filed Wednesday in Los Angeles. According to E! Online, Auburn claims she had a "series of romantic encounters" with Sheen in the 1990s, before he dumped her like a bag of yesterday's chicken gizzards. Auburn alleges Sheen later parlayed her heartbreak and attempts to hold onto the relationship into Rose, the mentally unbalanced female neighbor on "Two and a Half Men," who briefly dated Sheen's character and who has been stalking him ever since.

"It is undeniable that Rose is based on Auburn, and people who watch the show and know Auburn can see the resemblance," the lawsuit says. Auburn's seeking at least $1 million in damages.

Warner Bros. Television, which produces "Two and a Half Men," denies Auburn's claim, noting that Sheen played no part in developing the show's storyline.

"Sheen spends every free second with hookers and bookies; we're lucky if we can get him to show up sober and remember his lines," said Warner Bros. representatives.

OK, we made that part up. But it would be a pretty darned good defense.

Sheen has not commented on the suit.
